IBEROSTAR HACIENDA DOMINICUS
The Hacienda Dominicus is just outside the better-known Punta Cana area, situated in Bayahibe on the southeast coast next to the East National Park, just 15 minutes from the surprisingly attractive La Romana airport. The fresh-faced resort is a friendly, classy and pristine Iberostar property on a beautiful beach, generally free of the ruckus of many other all-inclusives. Located on the Dominican Republic softest and calmest stretch of beach, the highly active Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus is a pretty solid family option -- three clean pools, attentive service, and excellent scuba diving.
