Visited the resort Feb 5, 2016 for 7 days. Stayed in the #7 building. 3rd floor. Beautiful view of the ocean. Very clean. Room was amazing!!! Don't let them put you on the fourth floor. No balcony, not much of a view, tiny windows. A lot of locals selling merchandise on the beach but when you say 'no gracias' they... More

This resort was a wonderful surprise. Even though there were more positive reviews than negative, we weren't sure what to expect when we got to our destination. We love the Dominican and have been there a total of 9 times. This was the first time we visited the Playa Dorada Complex. We were not disappointed. The staff, the amenities, the... More

Pros: Great food, great atmosphere, right on the beach. Entertainment staff was enthusiastic and friendly. Always something to do or just relax. Rooms and property were well maintained. Cons: Disco music is much too loud, hard to sleep before 2am. The only decent chairs were in the buffet restaurant. People were up early to reserve poolside lounge chairs but didn't... More

Great resort. For the price we paid, this place exceeded our expectations in almost every category! Food was more than adequate all week. Beach area was huge and amazing. Our room was tidy, yes a bit dated overall but again, if you want everything perfect, pay 3x more at a 5 star. Balconies on rooms (only available on floors 1-3)... More

We loved the location of this resort so much when we went last year for 1 week, that this time we went for 2 weeks, and loved every minute. Despite the fact that it rained a few days during our first week, everything was perfect. This hotel has the best beach location anywhere on Dorada beach. It's amazingly beautiful! We... More

We chose that resort as a last minute one...and We're glad We did. Friendly staff very nice location (ocean on 2 sides) decent food. Room was ok no more.We had a special Christmas dinner for Christmas including all-you-can eat lobster. surprising for this kind of resort. Our 17 years old son made many friends and kept really busy..
