The Iberostar Dominicana is part of a three-hotel resort compound operated by the Iberostar Hotels & Resorts group out of Coral Gables, Florida.
The accommodations at the Iberostar Dominicana were excellent. Our room (#3774) was in a two-story building of only eight rooms, each with private balcony. Entering the room, we had a large mirrored closet with room safe and then the bathroom. The bathroom was all marble, with a bathtub, shower, toilet, bidet, and one sink with a vanity and large mirror sized for two people. To the right was the split-level living space. We had two full-size beds that shared a nightstand and lamp, with a ceiling fan overhead to circulate the air. There was no air-conditioning. Just down a step was a sunken sitting area with two built-in couches, a television, a long desk/dresser unit, and some coffee and end tables. The room refrigerator was hidden behind a panel in the desk unit. We were able to turn the TV so that we could watch it in bed or in the living area. Through the sliding-glass doors was the balcony, with couch, table, and drying rack for our beach things. The flooring in the room was all tile, which the housekeeping staff kept very polished and sand-free for our stay.
Overall, we were impressed with our accommodations. The service was excellent, and our housekeeper changed our towels daily, always artfully forming a towel into a swan or heart and sprinkling the room with fresh flowers. She always had a pleasant smile for us, and we traded quite a few "holas" with her during our stay. We were always stocked with beer, soda, and water. The grounds were beautiful, and we enjoyed the view from our balcony quite a bit. The only possible drawbacks were the sulfur smell from the bathroom and the sometimes sticky room climate at night. We were not, however, significantly bothered by these things. The only things that ever bothered us, in fact, were the sometimes startling outbursts from the peacocks in the extremely wee hours of the morning. We were ready to throw coconuts at them by the time we left!

**Added note: Upon further examination of the brochure, I believe we were given a room in the nicer Iberostar Bavaro portion of the complex.**
