Request building 3 or 4. We had 1 and our room did not get any sun. Our clothes took 3 days to dry

Lovely place for families.Posted Nov 17, 2014
Cons: Although plentiful & varied cuisine, the food quality this trip was a bit disappointing. Usually it is excellent but this trip not so much.
Location: Saona island excursion, snorkeling or diving & lunch on island; dolphin swims, zip line thru jungle, jeep tours, tours to Santo Domingo for the amber.
Our 10th trip to Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus. Our home away from home. Grounds are magnificent and kept beautiful. The rooms are large & always clean. No critter worries, rooms & grounds are sprayed for insects at least 1 time every 10 days or more if there is a lot of rain. Staff are friendly & ready to serve. We lost our tv signal one night & they were there to re-program very quickly. We got the room in the building we asked for & every day housekeeping delighted us with a different sculpture with towels and flowers.It is the little things like smiles from the groundskeepers & "Hola" from everyone!

Immaculate ResortPosted Oct 17, 2014
The grounds were immaculate! The resort was fantastic. Staff were friendly and helpful. Most of the guests were Europeans when we were there, which is fine by me. English skills were limited for many of the staff members. Speaking Spanish was very helpful. I don't think this is anything that needs to be improved, but it's something to be aware of for guests that only speak English.

Beautiful grounds.Posted Oct 12, 2014
Georgious grounds, very clean. It's a perfect resort for families with small children. The food was good. The staff seemed nice, but there was the language barrier. The resort lacked good entertainment. There was no entertainment by the pool at all till bingo at 3pm. The show were ok, but not to professional.

Location: It is SO far away from Punta Cana airport. Make sure that you have the transport from airport to hotel included. We had to pay US 120 for a taxi
We had a good experience. The hotel is beautiful and everything went perfect except for 2 things: 1. We got sick and the hotel has not doctor....very bad situation if something serious happens. 2. It is very far from airport and had to pay a taxi us120 just one way....too expensive!

Beautiful Beach! Great for Families.Posted Jul 12, 2014
We enjoyed our stay - the staff is super friendly, food was great and the beach and pool were perfect. The beach has very little waves and they had special meals every other day there (the paellas were amazing!) The evening entertainment and day time activities were fun as well. a couple of things to note: there are specialty restaurants that require a reservation - Japanese, Mexican and a lobster and meat restaurants. Take advantage. The bad- wifi is free but only in the lobby (and it drops alot), we ended up paying for the Internet; and the lobby doesn't have a non smoking area so we had a hard time finding a place we could "breathe" (my son has asthma) but regardless of.that fact smokers should have their area!

WonderfulPosted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: Size was just right
Cons: Cooling in the rooms could be better. Cleanliness fo the pool could be better
Location: Went to Santo Domingo - beautiful and interesting. Did 2 dives and the reefs there are just OK. Wish we had gone to the wrecks sites instead.
Just got back from a week at this property. We typically do this type of trip once a year and this was one of the nicest. The facility is just the right size - big enough to have all of the expected amenities and small enough that it was not a trek from the beach to the lobby area. The staff were great and put us in Building 4 as requested. The food was better than usual and varied enought that everyone was happy and never bored with the choices. I liked that the entertainment staff was present but never pushy. The shows at night were pretty good and entertaining. We will be back

Beautiful ResortPosted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Beautiful, friendly staff, plenty to do, food available all the time, restaurant choices
Cons: It was sweltering hot and the only well air conditioned space is your room, and maybe the late night lounge. Needs more air conditioning!!!!!
Location: Nothing really in walking distance. Plenty of excursions, some pretty pricey.
This is a great resort that was clean and well run. The staff was amazing. We were on a first name basis with many staff members within 24 hours. The facilities are beautiful and there is plenty to do. The food was mostly very good and some just ok/good. We ate at 3 of the 4 specialty restaurants, and they were all good. I would have preferred the pool to stay open later than 7pm, as well as an outdoor bar. Having to go to the lobby bar for drinks past 6pm was disappointing. The shows are kind of cheezy but that is what we expected. It was VERY HOT, and air conditioning was really only available in your room. Great spot for a family vacation.
