Celuisma playa Dorada review Jan1-8/15 No family room. Took 2.5 hrs to get an extra single bed in our room on night of arrival. We're told they don't have anything like a family room even though Sunwing sells a family room (sleeps6) configuration. We were travelling with three kids and they tried to fit us into two queen beds. Ended... More

That guy appologied for being late as he was looking for the resort, as it is nothing more than a local beach house. The whole time we were the only forgeinrs there. The 4 Canadians. The room had exactly as others said... More

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

My family an I really enjoyed the staying. The staff is so friendly and location is great. Breakfast/lunch/dinner buffet was good. The hotel was very good.

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