I spent 6 days in Iberostar puerto plata, It was really a good experience.The food in the buffet was better than in the restaurants which you have to reserve in advance.The food in the Brazilian restaurant was ok, the Japanese restaurant was like hibachi in the united states.Food nothing special , but might be good experience for the kids if they never had that experience.I skipped the Mexican restaurant .The buffet has fresh food everyday from fish to sea food , steaks ,and pork..good variety of food also fruits and desert.There restaurant open for food all day.The beach is great and so is the pool area.Unfortunately you have to get up before 7am to put a towel on a chair by the pool because most people are doing that even though there is a sign that says not allowed.The pool got a little crazy on the weekend since locals come in to the resort but the beach was great during weekend.The rooms are nice with balcony.The beds are ok, I would give a 5 star to this hotel if they had nice beds and sheets.Beach area has people from next door resort asking you to come visit theirs which is annoying and also people asking to go to gift shops walking distance from hotel on beach side.I recommend avoiding that .I went there and the guy wanted 240$ for a couple of bracelet and a towel worth maybe 20$.Better get that from hotel much cheaper.Also there were people there posing for pictures with guns.( not safe)
don't bring any expensive perfume through customs in DR..they will take it
