Me and my partner stayed at this hotel from 31st August - 14th September & were amazed from the moment we arrived. The second we entered the lobby for the first time we were greeted by fresh, cold drinks to quench our thirst after a 3hr delay due to a Thomson Dreamliners thermostat. We upgraded to an ocean view room... More

Just returned from a week at Iberostar Costa Dorada. The hotel was very comfortable and well designed. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the entertainment team were a lot of fun. The food was plentiful and reasonable quality; our room and the hotel in general were clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel

Everything the hotel says it offers is true. We enjoyed spending our mornings on the beach and afternoons by the pool. We went the last weekend in August, so the crowds had died down, and that mean the restaurants and beach chairs were hardly ever crowded. We at one of the fancier restaurants most nights, but we also enjoyed the... More
