My family, my boyfriend and I all stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks from 29th June - 14th July and it was absolutely amazing. It was me and my family's second time at this hotel and my boyfriend's first but we all found it absolutely wonderful. My boyfriend and I shared a sea view room which was beautiful to... 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

Where should I start? I have been a guest of the Iberostar Costa Dorada hotel almost since it opened. Both my husband and myself along with some family members stay for a month each year, two weeks in the summer and two in the fall/winter. Last July at the poolside my brother challenged me to take scuba lessons which were... More

This was our third stay at an all-inclusive in the Dominican Republic. This resort was smaller than the other resorts we stayed at. Everyone was very friendly and tried hard to please us even with the language barrier. The beach and resort are beautiful. We had no problems getting lounge chairs either at the beach or pool. The vendors on... More

We stayed here from 29th June for two weeks. Airport check in straight forward and a short twenty minutes to resort. We had a room at the back of the hotel on the top which was very peaceful, loved watching the birds and lizards in the morning in the trees. Rooms spacious, cleaned every day and mini bar well stocked.... More

I travelled here from 3 to 15 July with my two children, girl aged 15 (turned 15 whilst there) and son aged 10. We flew from Manchester in the Dreamliner which is an awesome place. This was our third time to the Dominican Republic and this is without a doubt the best hotel we have stayed at. The trip from... More

My husband and I decided to go to Puerto Plata, D.R. because of the great reviews and easy access to the hangout with the locals. When we arrived to the hotel we were blown away by how beautiful the resort was. It is very well manicured with beautiful landscaping and entrance to hotel. As we explored further we were pleased...
