Slice of Paradise

Pros: The grounds were amazing. Service was excellent. Food (I had two teens with me) was great. I loved the tranquil, happy atmosphere. It was wonderful
Cons: The beach could get a bit crowded, but it was still beautiful and the water spectacular.
Location: I loved this resort because it was not in a commercial area. It was a beautiful secluded compound - truly a place to relax enjoy the natural beauty.
This was an excellent trip from beginning to end. I was traveling with my daughter and her friend (both 14 yrs). This resort is a bit of a ride from the Punta Cana airport but well worth it. It is in a small town about an hour from the big tourist center. It is a charming, international area. No fast food places or malls. Everyone we encountered was polite and helpful - from the bus drivers, to the restaurant personnel, to hotel staff. I loved this resort. The buildings were so interesting with the tiled passageways winding through the gorgeous property - peacocks, flamingos, etc. Tennis courts and pro were good - I played several times - work out center was small but good. The pool and beach were beautiful. I loved the fact that there were no BIG SCREEN TVs all over the place. It was truly a place to relax, unwind and slow down - spa like. My teens did have WIFI the whole time so they were happy. Everything was well maintained. There was a charming evening show each night. The restaurants and food were great for us. I loved the buffet where I had an amazing selection of healthy and fresh food - grilled chicken, avocados, cheeses, papaya, delicious bread .. My meat eating children loved the steak restaurant and the swim up bar in the pool for chocolate milkshakes. They also reported the the hamburgers were excellent. We took two excursions - La Hacienda (favorite for teens with zip lines, etc) and Catalina Island - both a lot of fun.

Beach is a main reason

Pros: Location. Size of the resort, not too big and not too small. Food at the main buffet this time was really good - plenty of fresh seafood.
Cons: Management should find decent chef for the Mexican restaurant.
Location: Pure relaxation spot - sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, diving, kayaking... Eat, drink, dance, play volleyball or football - your choice!
We're a family in our late 50-s being at Hacienda Dominicus for a second strait year. It's a 4 hours non-stop flight from New York, which is very convenient for us. Transfer from airport La Romana to resort was unusually smooth and fast, about 30 minutes after receiving our luggage we were already at Check-in desk. Front desk clerks were extremely helpful and accommodating - they managed to provide us a room in the same building and on the same floor where our friends, who arrived few days earlier, were staying. Weather was very nice during the stay. Beach at this resort is one of the best we've ever been - sand portion is wide and clean, water was crystal clear, waves were barely noticeable most of the time, almost paradise. We've been at Iberostar resorts in Dominican Republic (Dominicana,Punta Cana and Hacienda Dominicus) and Mexico (Paraiso Beach, Del Mar, Lindo, Maya and Playacar) multiple times and we like them all, but the beach makes all the difference. Colonial gourmet restaurant and Grill Steakhouse were very good, Mexican restaurant was a BIG disappointment compare to last year experience, and we did not visit the Japanese restaurant this time.

great grounds

The food was pretty typical for an all inclusive.  Staff was very good, property well taken care of.  Beach clean and plenty of spots to sit and relax.

Great for Family Vacationing or Fun with Friends

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
I stayed at the Resort in early December and had an amazing time with my group. The grounds are very well kept and the Beach atmoshere very lively. All of the dining options were very good and did not experience wait times at any point. The best part of the stay was the warmth and helpfulness of their well seasoned staff.
