We stayed here last year - and we didn't find a single thing wrong with it! Staff were fantastic! Always smiling, happy and accommodating. Even when I didn't tip, a big smile and always eager to please. Rooms; Great - pretty basic, but clean and neat and fridge was always stocked. We overlooked the pool area and it was nice.... More

The Iberostar Costa Dorada is a truly great hotel and fantastic value. Let’s start off with the really good points: All staff was really efficient, friendly and helpful, but a special note should be made of the amazing entertainment staff including Popeye, Hulu-hulu and Chocolate. Food in the main buffet dining room is fantastic for all meals, with a different... More

The hotel grounds are extremely clean and well kept. The staff are very pleasant. Carlos in the lobby reception is wonderful to deal with, very helpful. Our room was a bit dated but very clean and the bed very comfortable. Our view was not great because we faced a road and a fence next to the other resort beside us.... More

This is my second visit to this hotel (last time was in February of 2004). I have travelled to several all inclusive resorts in various countries (Panama, Mexico, Dominican 5 times, Jamaica, Bahamas) and this is by far one of the best. Food: Was great! Tasted like food from home, and they had a ton of variety (wasn't the exact... More

This is a nice resort but if you have been to other iberostar resorts you might be a little disappointed. The resort is very clean, the pool in comparison is smaller than others in Mexico. The beach is nice but the swim areas depending where you look on the beach can be grassy but there are some great areas. The... More

I am a repeat customer to this hotel and have been 8 times on the run every year. Everything you need is available with a main resteraunt with a choice for everyone being rotated every night. I visit with my family and friends and have visited Jamaica and Mexico and this is by far the best hotel I've stayed In.
