... on the board and surf in one direction. The only problem was that we only knew how to move in one direction and after some minutes we were very far away from where we started. I ended up inside where people were supposed to swim and the lifeguard were yelling at me in front of all the people that were swimming. I don't blame him because I didn't have any control of what direction my board went in. Oda on the other hand never came out of where ...
... us back to our hotel and we thanked them so much, and offered them money but they refused to take it. We then took pictures with them because HOW COOL WERE THOSE COPS? Thats how all police should be. Doing their jobs.
We went into the hotel, hung around and chatted for a while before finally getting to bed when the sun rose.
We got woken up around 11:30 by the lady at the front desk because it was time to check out. We had no plans really so I went out ...
... end of the day, was amazing. It was a restaurant that only allows adults that are 19 years and older. So thank God we were above that age or else we wouldn't have been able to enter. But I really recommended this restaurant. The food was amazing and the environment was really nice.
Now, going to bed and waiting to leave tomorrow. :(
... still forced to take the 8 PM bus to the airport. So we spend almost all night at the airport. We slept on benches that were there. Of course Punta Cana was not expecting to have this many people to be at the airport at once. There were people lying on the floor and sprawled out everywhere. The amount of walking space was limited. Causing walking hazards and such. Eventually our plane has arrived after a another set back. There were no planes in Toronto that ...
Fourth day here in Punta Cana. Enjoying the sun.
Today, my boyfriend and I went to the Dolphin Explorer adventure. It is amazing, I got to swim with the dolphins, it was only 4 hours. I wished we got to spend more time with the dolphins. But it was really short. Included in the Dolphin Explorer was the bird show, and ...

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.
