It´s not worth to spent your money in this resort. The only good thing is that it´s near the beach. The disco is not free at all, only the entrance, for the drinks you have to pay. If you stay VIP it´s allright but that will cost you a membership and that is very expensive. Don´t go here.

But the last attempt on one of credit cards is a credit card we rarely use and never leaves... More

My boyfriend and I went to the mall and were approached by a lady telling us that 4 people can go to the Celuisma hotel in Playa Dorada for 200.00 dollars. Wow I thought was a great deal! well boy was I wrong. We were not told... More

The hotel didn't offer us the courtesy of free breakfast as listed here. The staff was rude and the manager did not show face. Food make me sick with diarrhea for over a week! There were mosquitos everywhere. They had not fumigated. Then they did and there were dead bugs everywhere. My daughter got bit too often. Do not go... More

Beautiful beach/pretty clean and service was fine, we were lucky that we had a... More

Good drinks, good food. Ok shows- amateurs. The staff will hit on you constantly if you are a girl. All inclusive. Most staff know little English. The summer is their slow season so not everything advertised is made available. No hot water the 1st day but otherwise fine after that. Lots of flies but they couldn't help that. Not the... More

I have reviewed this hotel 5 other times now but it has been refused each time. I don't know how else to say it except to post my pictures of all the mildew, mold, run down condition of our "recently renovated superior room" and let the reader decide. The food, of which I don't have any photos, was terrible. I... More
