First of all, those who say this is not a 5 star hotel are both right and wrong. You cannot judge this against Four Season, the Setai, Ritz Carlton or the Delano. They are 2 different animals. There are no bathrobes, the blow dryer blows (no pun intended) and no room service. That being said, it was simply amazing for... More

The place was overrated. I will never go to another Iberostar anywhere especially in Dominican Republic. The reviews are biased to the elderly and families. We did not enjoy the food. Food quality would be low quality on my list in comparison to the United States. DR is a third world country and very much indicates such. I thought I... More

My wife and I spent 10 days at this hotel in April 2011. It was without doubt the best All Inclusive hotel we have been to. The rooms were good, plenty of choice in the main restaurant, bars all over the place, staff very helpful, beach brilliant.

This was our 4th year at Iberostar. In our opinion it is second to none. The service,staff,food and rooms all top of the line. We call it our home away from home because you are treated like family.
