Hotel is beautiful, spotlessly clean, very well manicured... More

Four couples visited the Iberostar Costa Dorada in February, we were all pleasantly surprised. We were placed in a room on the third floor away from the other three couples, after a few days we requested a room close to theirs, to our surprise we were placed in the same building (building 1) as them, a beautiful room overlooking the...

The hotel was fantastic! Our rooms were in block 2, and we had a great view of the pool area. Our rooms were spacious and kept very clean by the maids. The mini fridge was also well stocked up. The food at the hotel was great, in the main buffet there was a lot of variety, and there was always... More

I went to the Iberostar Costa Dorada for two weeks from 6th July - 20th July with my family. We travelled with Thomson, and flew on their new Dreamliner. The plane was brilliant, before taking off at London Gatwick, the pilot displayed across the entire cabin the lights, which changed colours. The plane was big and spacious and was a... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks in August 2013. Upon arrival the resort is very big, great welcome with cocktails in the reception area. Checking in did take an age however to be expected pretty much wherever you go nowadays. We were lead to believe that the hotel was about a month away from being refurbished in certain areas, the pool... More
