Nice all-inclusivePosted Jun 4, 2015
Pros: All-inclusive alcohol Massages on the beach were great Beach was beautiful and not too crowded Buffet was good Check-in was easy Beautiful lobby
Cons: Rooms, activities, restaurant options.
Location: We did not leave the resort - we were happy on the beach and by the pool!
My husband and I went for our anniversary. It was nice, not too crowded. Very few Americans! Staff was pleasant. Best: All-inclusive alcohol Massages on the beach were great Beach was beautiful and not too crowded Buffet was good Check-in was easy Beautiful lobby, gardens, etc. OK: Rooms are okay, clean but nothing special Shows are entertaining but simple Not great: Our room key had to be replaced three times (including twice in a 3 hour span) The games/activities are weak (rifle shooting, kayaking, etc.) The restaurants have VERY limited menus, not many vegetarian options

Nice hotel and beautiful beachPosted May 23, 2015
Cons: Free WiFi at the lobby. The system does not support volume of people.
This was our seventh trip to Domenican Republic. six to Punta Cana and one to la Romana and our third staying at the Iberostar hotels. The Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus is an awesome hotel. My wife and I enjoyed every minute. Staff, rooms, food, entertainment, the beach, the Disco and El Faro Bar at the Beach was very nice. The Theme restaurants were good. They offered free WiFi at the lobby, but the system/router does not support the volume of users all at once so not everyone can access free WiFi. I suggest they can install several routers so people will be able to join in without any problems. Great hotel and we will come back again.

Beautiful hotel with an amazing beachPosted May 15, 2015
Pros: Beautiful beach and hotel grounds, great pool with swim-up bar, great entertainment
Amazing experience overall at this resort. The beach is absolutely beautiful with crystal clear, calm water. The entertainment was nonstop and there was always something to do at the beach or pool. The nightly shows were also very good, especially the Michael Jackson show. The food was very good in the buffet with a variety of choices and the specialty restaurants were excellent (ate at El Colonial and the steakhouse). This is a truly great resort for an affordable price.

Great stay at a great resortPosted May 11, 2015
Pros: The beach and pool were very nice and very similar temperatures. We did a lot of swimming.
Cons: We can't really think of anything other than something minor like it would be nice to have a hook or two in the bathroom.
Location: This resort is in a remote area. We took the local bus into the town of Bayahibe. It cost $1 each way and we caught it right in front of the resort.
We enjoyed our time at this resort in this remote area of the Dominican Republic. We liked taking long walks down the beach. You do need to put out your towels early in the morning (before 7 a.m.) to reserve your lounge chairs especially by the beach. You don't need to, but we did tip many of the bartenders and waitstaff $1 or $2 now and then and it was much appreciated. There were activities occurring around the pool and beach if you wanted to participate. We brought our own snorkel gear, but the water close to the resort was rather cloudy and not good for snorkeling closeby. Did take 1.5 hour snorkel excursion out from the resort, and that was very good. For us, we would prefer that the nightly shows begin thirty minutes earlier.

Very quiet room, comfortable. Good food, varietyPosted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: Smaller than Punta Cana Iberostar we have stayed at in the past. We felt that the staff was very helpful and thoughtful, did not seem to be so rushed
Cons: Longer stays for us
Location: Location on the Carribean Sea was a must for us. Went hoseback riding to the caves(underground limestone caverns). Swam in the caverns crystal water
Loved the beach and amenities. Treated great by all staff, our housekeeper did ans excellent job daily. Truly, a peaceful vacation. Would go back to this resort again!!

Pros: The food (amazing), staff (friendly and always helpful), and property (beautiful grounds with exotic birds).
Cons: 1. Designated smoking areas 2. Guests "reserving" pool/beach chairs - may be more helpful if towels unclaimed for more than 1-2 hours were removed
Location: Great location on the beach; highly recommend the day trip to Santo Domingo to see the Colonial City.
The resort property is absolutely beautiful and very scenic. The food is amazing, the activities and night performances are fun, and the staff is incredibly friendly. The downsides were that most of the adult guests were smokers and hard to avoid at the beach and pool areas, and a lot of guests put down towels early in the morning to reserve beach/pool chairs but wouldn't show up for hours.
