Felt a little doubtful about resort when we read some of your previous reviews, but as I work for a hotel chain in England ( Not Iberostar ). I do know how fickle some feedbacks can be. This was just a lovely resort, great staff ,friendly, professional and so hard working. Location great not too far from the airport -... More

We enjoyed the resort from Oct 27 - Nov 3rd with a group of 7. The trip from the airport to the hotel is approximately 20 minutes. Our room was not ready when we arrived but was ready by 3 pm which is the check in time. The staff were very nice and apologetic that they couldn't have our room... More

Inexpensive all inclusive price but not worth it. The rooms are old, thought our fan would fall out of the ceiling. There is no thermostat that you can control. The pool is nice but that is about it. The only relaxation we got was at the spa. We had nice massages and sat in the Jacuzzi. As far as the... More

I just got back, still have the sunburn to prove it. :) This is the second time I have traveled to the Dominican Republic for an educational conference. Upon checking in, we were at first given a small pool side room that was simply not to par. The bathtub had sand in it, the mini fridge didn't work, the door... More

We stayed at the resort from Nov 4-11, 2014 for our honeymoon. The front desk upgraded our room to an oceanview & sent a bottle of champagne and fruit platter to celebrate our honeymoon, which was very nice. The location is nice and close to the airport, about 20 minutes travel time. The beach is mid-high quality. The water was... More

Actually the rooms aren't that bad--just boring motel quality. A few bugs, no room service, no snacks in mini-bar, a little peeling paint. The restaurants closed at inconvenient times: before 7:30 am and between 5 and 6 pm. Food is plentiful at buffets but not great--just average. Do NOT take any of the excursions: they are way overpriced! On the... More

The activity staff "Pepsi," "Taquila," "Chocolate," and "Maria" provided great games for keep visitors busy and engaged with fun activities. The spa provided an wonderful respite with massages so relaxing we scheduled a second visit with... More

30 of our friends and family came and stayed at Iberostar Costa Dorada for our wedding from Oct 28 2014-Nov 4 2014. Although we didn't get married on the resort, we did have the "reception" there with dinner and dancing. Our stay and our reception was totally amazing!! We were supposed to change resorts for our honeymoon and a week... More
