We had a very nice time at this resort. We upgraded to the Star Prestige Package. It is worth it if you like premium liquor. The staff is very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. If you are a beach lover we highly suggest getting to the beach early due to the increasingly strong ocean winds which eventually make it extremely difficult to sit at the beach. We ate at two of the speciality restaurants (Mediterranean and Japanese) . Both were very good. It was a pleasure coming back to our room every evening to be greeted with a handwritten note from Gabriella as well as a unique arrangement of flower petals on our bed. We had a wonderful vacation!

I loved the food

I loved the food selection in all the buffets and restaurants. The room was very nice. The entertainment was awesome. The staff was super friendly and helpful always. Had a wonderful time, thanks.
But They were overly aggressive in trying to sell me the membership.

5 Stars All Around!

My family recently surprised my dad with a trip to the Dominican Republic to celebrate his retirement. We chose this hotel based off of prices (wasn’t the most expensive and wasn’t the cheapest) and other Trip Advisor reviews. The reviews were accurate and our trip and the hotel definitely lived up to its reputation!

The hotel staff were so hardworking and friendly! Every morning the server at the buffet greeted us and quickly learned how we liked our coffee and how many people were in our group! The grounds were always so well maintained and the workers were constantly cleaning up emptied glasses and any garage that was around.

The food was compareable and similar to other types of all inclusive resorts I’ve been too. Our favorite alacarte restaurant was the Japanese one by far!

At 9, they have a “show before the show” where the entertainment crew has audience members go on the stage and have little competitions... this was always one of my favorite parts of the night and it was hilarious! Some of the nightly shows at the theater were better than others. My favorites were Michael Jackson night and The Lion King.

Suggestions-
1. Go to the beach early in the morning/day and the pool in the afternoon. When we were there, the beach got super windy in the afternoon and the sand would fly up and hit you. This wasn’t a problem when we went early and would stay there until about 1 o’clock!

2. Beer is usually served in a small cup. Either bring your own travel mug with you and they will fill it up or ask them for a bigger cup of beer!

3. Bring lots of $1 or $5 to tip! We quickly ran out of money and wish we had more.

4. Do some excursions! I highly recommend the 27 Waterfalls Tour with Runners Adventures if you are adventurous! We also went scuba diving/snorkeling with Dressel Divers and had a great time!

Overall, we had such a great trip and I’m glad we made the choice to go to Puerta Plata and stay at the Iberostar! We would definitely like to go back some day!

Over all pretty good

Stayed here for a week all inclusive and overall it was pretty good. The food is good with many choices.

They have 3 restaurants that you need reservations for all of which are good but book early as times go fast.

If you like to drink a good premium liquor you will be disappointed, I am from Canada and the best whiskey is “Canadian Mist” which is downright nasty. Not a fan of rum or sweet drinks so that really narrowed down my selections. Lots of sweet drinks on the menu that everyone seems to enjoy.

The entertainment is not great. The shows are disappointing and not well done. The music is brutal. I know we are visiting a Caribbean country but when 98% of your guests are from other parts of the world mixing up the music to include rock and roll, country, top 40 and even 60, 70 and 80’s would be good. Most of the dancing was “staff members” getting guests up to dance. Doesn’t need to be Latin music all the time. One night they were playing some great music, I thought things would be great for the night. Until a manager went and said something to the DJ...end of good music completely. We ended up leaving and going for a walk instead when we would have liked to dance.

The staff are amazing and really did a great job taking care of you.

The pools are good and the beach is good too except for the constant seaweed and unrelenting wind. Mornings on the beach are best before the wind really gets going, at least the wind is warm. In the afternoon you get pelted pretty good by the blowing sand. The workers do a good job of keeping the seaweed at bay.

Even with the few disappointments it was still a really great week and I would recommend staying here.
