Iberostar Puerto Plata is an excellent choice; it provides an all-inclusive experience without erasing the character of Dominican culture. The hotel is large but not overwhelming, the food is varied and tasty, but not so irresistible that you spend the trip gorging, and the staff is friendly but not intrusive. Overall, a truly wonderful hotel.

Stayed here Jan 7-13th and chose this resort after reading reviews. The resort was actually MUCH smaller than I imagined based on reviews and resort maps. That said-the beach seems quite large with plenty of chairs. Was initially disappointed in the outdated look of the rooms-not that we stay in the rooms for long periods-usually just to sleep. The pool...

Very nice property close to the Puerto Plata airport. Like many resorts in the DR, there are locals combing the beach offering massages and hair braiding. Overall a nice beach with tendency to have lots of seaweed in certain areas. Nice wind, nice surf. Food is good and there is plenty of it. The rooms are clean, large and have...

I had never before stayed at an all-inclusive resort, and frankly wasn't expecting much. Over the course of 40+ years of travel, I've stayed in places where I felt my physical safety was actually in danger, and I've stayed in 5-star hotels in a variety of locales, including major European, South American and Asian destinations. The Iberostar was a lovely...

Beautiful hotel convenient to the beach and pool area. Activities offered throughout the day for all ages; entertainment provided at night. Variety of food and drink available 24/7.
