... photo. Sadly Kevin (the father of the bride) was also sick at that time and missed some of the wedding reception.
On the Thursday we went out for a ‘James Bond’. That’s a ride in a speed boat, James Bond style and then a snorkel on the reef which although good, with many colourful fish was not a patch on GBReef as all the coral is dead. Maybe there are other areas away from the heavily ...
... entire resort went out to see the ceremony, it was a complete free for all. Besides that, in the actual hotel, I was able to get a mani pedi for about 20 bucks, and they were offering horseback riding around the shore for 50 bucks. The room service was really great and the bar tenders never told you you had too many drinks. One thing I will say is if you have teenagers beware because in the Caribbean and ...
... US$ 25.00 for the privilege of visiting a fake medieval village, which according to my guidebook is overpriced and overrated. Sour grapes? Perhaps.
We drop Casa de Campo, leaving it for the 1%, and continue on to the village of Bayahibe.
A wining tree-lined lane leads us to a charming colourful village situated amongst tiny sandy coves bathed by the glorious blue Caribbean. It’s everything we had hoped a Caribbean village would be. We park (for ...

The hotel was huge and there were many different places to eat during the day and night.
The food and drinks are delicious!
We went quad riding through the city and a bit of the forest for our first tour and then went on a Safari Adventure, and saw how coffee and cocoa was made, a very nice cultural experience.
I would definitely go back for another vacation!
... sand was white - couldn't ask for more. We wandered around doing another site inspection (after all these resorts I'm surprised they didn't all look the same). We stopped at the bar a couple times through out, and I wonder - is this why I don't remember the resorts we saw? Bigons!
We have lunch at RIU Palace... and it had such a HUGE dessert buffet. I ate a little of this and that for lunch and then about 3 different plates of desserts. How could ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Iberostar Punta Cana
Our week at the Iberostar (Sept. 16-23) passed much too quickly and we definitely want to return to this wonderful place. We took an Apple Tour from Baltimore, Maryland to Punta Cana and highly recommend it. The Apple Tour representatives at the Punta Cana Airport and the hotel were very helpful and professional. It was obvious they enjoy their job and are very proud of their country.
The Hotel - Great rooms, perhaps in need of a little updating but still furnished and decorated to a high standard. Reception area was simply beautiful- arranged around a huge pond with water feature (not forgetting the fish and terrapins!). Great seating and bar areas. Pool was beautiful and plenty of sunbeds and palapas (sunshades) both at the pool and on the fabulous beach.
Punta cana dominican republiic. We stayed at the Iberostar Punta Cana and it was so wonderful. All the workers were friendly and so awesom. The weather was great. The pool was warm and the ocean was clear and warm too. The beach was clean and a lot of unbrellas. Always one available. The restaurants were also clean and very good food.. The outdoor cookouts were very entertaining as well as yummy eats. The nighly entertainment was also spectacular!! We never made it to the night club because we were so tired from the day. The casino was ok, fun for entertainment but not for big gamblers. My husband and I think the resort is definetly the five golden apple. We went the last week of Jan beginning of Feb in 2004. oh yes the drinks were good!!
Topless bathing in beach and pools
This is not a family atmosphere. There is topless bathing on the beaches as well as in the pool area. I read soooooo many reviews about this resort but none had mentioned this aspect. I was quite surprised considering the details of some of these reviews. We were a party of 9, 6 adults/3 kids. Besides this prominently overlooked fact, the resort was fantastic. The staff is extremely courteous and accommodating. Check-in and check-out was very smooth. The grounds are beautiful. The food is ok. They don't have very much variety for veggies or just chicken eaters.. Most of the variety was in pork or beef. Overall, the experience was very pleasant.
We have just returned from the most fabulous holiday at the Punta Cana Hotel, Dom Rep. From the minute we boarded the aeroplane to the time we came home, we were treated to first class service all the way!!!!!
We have stayed at Iberostar Punta Cana 2 times, Iberostar Dominicana 1 time, Riu, Bambu 1 time and Melia Caribe 1 time. We will go back to Iberostar, Punta Cana this December. The resort, beach and people are great. Yes, to be honest, you do get sick of the buffet after 5 or 6 days, but the Iberostar is the best. Melia Caribe is SOOO big and the train rides get old after a day or so. Riu resorts are overall very good. Riu Bambu is great, because you can go to all other Riu resorts, except the Palace. The Palace is fun to look at, but the people that stay there are stuffy!!!! Take the pepto bismol and you won't get the stomach problems!
We spent 7/16 through 7/23 at the Iberostar Punta Cana. We are a family of 3, my husband, myself and our 6 year old son. This was our second visit to the Iberostar Punta Cana. We had initially planned a trip to the Mayan Riviera this year, but changed our minds a couple of months ago when we got a great deal on Punta Cana. What luck! Missed Hurricane Emily and the two tropical storms that followed! We had wonderful weather the entire week we were there.
Just got back from the Iberostar Punta Cana/Dominicana hotel and I have to say it was the best holiday I have ever had!! There were 4 of us mum, dad, brother (19) and myself (17).
We had stayed at the Iberostar Punta Cana from May 20, 2005 thru May 27, 2005. We had booked with Apple Vacations, who streamlined the trip from Philadelphia through our entire stay.
When we went to Punta Cana we had an idea of what we were going into as it was recommended by some very good friends of ours. The island was wonderful the people at the resort were so helpful and tried hard to communicate with us in our English language, and we would try a bit of the domincan lingo. The kids that worked for the resort were the best they were there to make sure the vacationers were having a good time.
