SO SOPosted Nov 5, 2013
Pros: Beautifull gardens
Cons: Room air conditioner, GYM
Location: Not much going on near by
This hotel did not function the TV the first 24 hours, the air conditioner is poor in the rooms. The food is good in the buffet. The Japonesse restaurant is very poor , serves frozen octupus and prawns. The chef has to attend 20 people so the rice is smoked, the vegetables are over cooked. No sense in eating there. The GYM has few equipment for the number of users and you have to wait a lot, the trainner does not do anything to help the visitors, he is just looking for tips... Overall is not worst the money, much better dreams and catalonia near by.

Comfortable hotel right on the beachPosted Oct 11, 2013
Pros: Hotel staff was incredible, friendly and helpful. You can see how hard they are working, but they always smile and look cheerful and are always ready
Cons: Addition of small benches in the off the beach shower areas, where people rinse off sand of their feet and put shoes back on, would be a welcome impro
Location: The hotel is located east of La Romana and there is really no village or any other point of interest with in the walking distance of the hotel. The i
We enjoyed our 1 week stay at Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus . The hotel has a warm felling; the grounds are beautiful, with a large variety of flowering trees. We visited off season in September 27 – to Oct 5th 2013 and enjoyed relatively quiet period. Lawn chairs at the pool or on the beach were available any time of day; pool and sea water was delightfully warm. Rocks in the water off the beach were a bit of disappointment. We were impressed to see that barrier free access was provided in couple of areas on the beach. The management should be commended for making this possible.

BEST VALUE AND SERVICE IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLICPosted Sep 20, 2013
Cons: for the money, can not be beat
Location: not much to do near by. the hotel is a destination and includes all.
Have lived in the Dominican Republic many years. Have visited hotels on both coasts as well as the mountains. Iberstar at Bayaibe is a quality hotel with lovely grounds that include fountains, aquatic birds and exotic plants. The food is excellent. From the buffet to the Colonial, the Japaneses and the Steak House, all would be considered in the top tier any place. The bar serves quality liquors and is generous with all. The workers are kind and friendly. The cost is so very modestn for the quality one receives, it is hard for me to see how it is done. The rooms are not overly luxurious, they are more than adequate and have all needed conveniences.they are impecably clean. Enthusiastically recomend Iberstar for one seeking rest, good service, fine food and drink along with good and friendly service. Hard to beat any where.

Beautiful grounds, pool, beach and great food!Posted Aug 8, 2013
Pros: The food, grounds, pool, and beach
Cons: Customer service and being more attentive to your customers
Location: Parasailing, scuba diving, island excursions
The hotel is beautiful and I was surprised that it had very tasty food and a variety of food choices. The room was great, however I was disappointed that the daily cleaning service wasn't very good (i.e, no small wash clothes, sheets not changed the entire 5 days we were there). The beach is magnificent, very clean and easy to get a chair under a hut. Overall the hotel was beautiful but I would not stay here again because of the fact that the staff was horrible; very rude and not wanting to attend to any of your needs. Also, the activities staff wasn't that great and didn't really seem to be as inthusiastic as the staff at the Iberostar in Punta Cana. I wish I would have stayed at Catalonia, which was right next store (same beautiful beach) and much cheaper! And BEWARE: taxi service is very expensive! From the La Romana Airport, which is only about 15 minutes away, was 65 american dollars! and to go to Santa Domingo was 120 U.S. dollars. So take a shuttle on-line

Nice placePosted Jul 31, 2013
Cons: More things to do so people don't get bored after 2-3 days
Nice looking resort and pretty well kept,not many resort activities nor much to do local(we were gonna book an excursion but from one day to the next the info. changed for whatever reason,not much night time fun,shows were no good,food is pretty good besides everything you eat makes you very bloated no matter if you eat alot or a little (MSG),alcohol drink are terrible and very weak so bring your own if you enjoy good drinks(They take the good stuff out of bottles and put cheap stuff in)99% of people are Europeans so if you speak those languages your good to go but we only speak English so didnt meet many people we could communicate with. Overall all it was ok and relaxing but I would not return being I have stayed in Punta Cana area my last trip and was much better at Dreams Resort or that area in general.Come to find out Dreams Resort in LaRomana is the best in LaRomana area also.

Family friendlyPosted May 1, 2013
Pros: The grounds were beautiful and very clean
Cons: No evening activities
Location: Close to airport
We were a group of all adults. Hotel seemed to focus around families and quiet evenings. Our group was hoping for more evening activities. While I might return with family, we, as a group of adults, would not return to that particular hotel.
