Pretty Basic but Nice

Cons: They really should re-do the pool liner. It makes the place look much more run down than it is.
The Iberostar Punta Cana isn't a luxury hotel, so don't go into it expecting that. The grounds are lovely and well maintained though. The beach is crowded but also beautiful. What I really liked about this hotel is that it isn't overwhelming. Beach chair wars aren't as bad here as I've seen. There are lots of huts on the beach. It's not a sprawling property which makes it easier to navigate. The people are a pleasure to deal with...from housekeeping to activities counselors, to wait staff, etc. I had a much more positive view of the staff here than I did at our last Punta Cana hotel. The food, well, isn't too good. That said, it really didn't matter to us. Unless you want to spend a fortune, the food at these all-inclusives isn't ever good. You just can't let it bother you or you will ruin your trip. I liked this place. We had some issues (backed up tub, power outages, etc) but overall things were fine. Give it a try!

Great Room close to the beach

Pros: Room was nice and staff was very friendly. Beach very clean and beautiful.
Cons: The food wasn’t great at dinner! Buffets were good but special restaurants not good. Stick to buffet and you’ll be fine.
Location: Went to the spa one day and it was very nice. Stayed on grounds the whole time. Golf course looks nice but didn’t use it.
There were six of us here for 5 days, our rooms were together and very close to the beach. Beach was beautiful and pool was nice too. Rooms and hotel was clean, grounds were kept nicely. Staff was great and friendly. Shows looked good and had activities for all.

You Get What You Pay For

I went with a group of 16 people. My room was not ready when I checked in at 5:00 pm. My toilet had issues and my sink stopper did not pull up cause the sink to overfill with water and not drain. The food was not the best and I lost weight. The 43 liquor was being rationed out at the lobby bar and limited in the Casino to 1 shot person even though this was in writing nowhere. The guest with me experienced hostility from some and disrespect. I did. I did not as everyone was nice to me and professional. The only issue I had was when two competing agencies got angry because I booked an excursion with another company that was cheaper. Full disclosure, I booked my trip through another agency and I was not restricted, but others with me were and I was unaware. I would be okay but if the Amerstar representative had not raised his voice at me and came at me in an agressive manner and that cause a verbal exchange that was over blown by the Amerstar representative. We will never stay at this resort. I wa trying to support a friend for trip and this was what she wanted. I should have listened to the reviews given and stayed away.

Ok hotel maybe 21/2 stars.

Pros: Beach is beautiful! Nice pools! Nice landscaping, love the orchids!
Cons: Upgrade rooms! More variety of food. Casino dealers need improvement in terms of courtesy and customer service. They seemed very unhappy and bothered.
Location: Offer shuttle service nightly to other casinos.
More food variety, our stay was 1 week get so tired of eating exact same stuff lunch and dinner over and over. Timeshare Sales person was too aggressive, people like to be left alone and enjoy other things. Room could use some upgrades, very outdated. Casino needs big improvement, very unfriendly dealers, very impolite, not inviting. No one smiles, no greetings. We felt like we were bothering them. Overall- ok hotel, maybe and half stars.
