There’s more than one way to start your day at Iberostar Dominicana. Maybe you’re the up-and-at’em type, in which case the resort is your oyster. Maybe you’d like to watch the sunrise ripple across the ocean — AKA the perfect excuse to stake out your spot on the UNESCO-recognized Bávaro Beach. Or, perhaps you like to get active first thing in the morning; a brisk round of golf at the Iberostar Selection Bávaro Golf Club — regionally renowned for its design by the acclaimed P.B. Dye — is breath of fresh air, figuratively and literally.
Or, maybe you’re the “I’m on vacation, I’m not waking up before 9” type — that’s fair! Both the Higuey and Hispaniola Buffets are open till 10 a.m., meaning you can catch those late-morning z’s and still enjoy a complete breakfast while looking out over paradise.
Regardless of your morning, the next thing on your docket should be enjoying a dip. Even here, however, you have choices: the azure-hued ocean is right there after all … but so is the pool. Either way, the moment calls for the first (of potentially many) delightful tipples. It’s not 5, but it’s your vacation! There is no better way to treat yourself than soaking in the cool water of a tropical resort.
Afternoon is where the possibilities branch out once again. Perhaps you’d like to continue unwinding at the onsite SPA Sensations; a menu of over 30 massages guarantees you’ll find the treatment perfect for you. Or, maybe you’re in the mood for discovery. Iberostar’s Coral Lab (the first of its kind in Playa Bávaro) serves to protect these curious creatures from bleaching, diseases and hurricanes — while simultaneously allowing you to get up close and learn about coral reefs.
Of course, the tried-and-true afternoon activity is a siesta — you are on vacation after all. Each and every room at the Iberostar Dominicana achieves the trifecta of what you’d look for in your home-away-from-home: spacious, well-furnished and looking out on tranquil scenes.
Forget a night out on the town; your evening can be jam-packed just with Iberostar’s offerings. Dinner comes in many flavors — maybe you’re feeling a black-tie affair? The haute cuisine of La Sibila is certain to delight, with delicacies like beef tournedó with rosemary or red snapper filet on vegetable barigoule tantalizing your taste buds. Or, if you’re not feeling French, no worries — Iberostar has seven other restaurants to choose from, ranging from Japanese, Thai, Mexican and Mediterranean to good ol’ fashioned American comfort food.
After dinner calls for the treat of your choice. Disco DC-6 is your go-to spot for dancing the night away as this club is open till 3 a.m. Alternatively, if your idea of a fun night is watching sports while playing pool, the Courtyard Bar is the venue you’re looking for. Either way, after a full day here, you’ll arrive back to your room ready for a night of blissful sleep — and looking forward to doing it all again tomorrow.
