Hotel RIU Palace Punta CanaWe began our stay at the Iberostar Dominicana for 3 nights. We had a room on the 1st floor and they have golf carts that will take you from the lobby to your room and vice versa. The property is beautiful.

We could only make one ala carte reservation for our stay (they limit how man reservations you can make depending on how many nights you stay). There is no swim up bar or service around the pool. The entertainment was good.

We had a day pass at the Hard Rock and that was so much fun! The property is huge and they have trams running between the lobby and beach. We ate at the buffet for lunch and it was very good - several stations with different options. Some of the ala carte restaurants were open for lunch as well. There were even two food trucks on property. We found chairs by the pool (one of 13!) and just chilled out with drinks. I walked around the property and checked out the kids Water Park and lazy river.

We stayed the last 4 nights at RIU Palace Punta Cana. The resort was renovated in 2017 and is still one of our favorites. No issues getting into the ala carte restaurants (no reservations required) and we liked the food. I walked over to the RIU Bambu and RIU Macao (just reopened after renovations). There are RIU Parties 4 nights a week (18 and over) and the entertainment was good.

A few notes:
-yes, Spanish is the native language but most of the staff at all 3 resorts spoke some English, so there was no real language barrier
-we were picked up for our return transfer about 3 hours prior to departure
-make sure you download the apps for the resorts
-the Dominican Entry form is only shown at time of check in for your departing flight. If you do not have it, you will be denied boarding

Overall, we had a great time and it was nice to get away from everything!
