This is our 2nd time visiting this resort. While the service and food is outstanding the facility is in major need of an overhaul. The nightly entertainment is good and the children's program is also a plus!

Stayed her with my parents and son. The hotel OK you really get what you pay for. The beach is very rocky so you really need to manoeuvre around the water to find a spot where you can stand. The beach vendors are a bit of a pain as they will approach you and not leave until the guard notices... More

We had a wonderful two weeks at the Iberostar Costa Dorada in Puerto Plata. The hotel staff was nice, friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and the Mexican and Japanese restaurants within the hotel were my favorites. Mario the guest services manager went above and beyond to help us! Our bathroom tub paint was peeling and he offered to... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks with my girlfriend. Found the hotel to be well maintained and very clean. No problem with getting a sunbed by the pool or on the beach. The food in all restaurants was very nice as was the service (especially in the main restaurant by a waiter named Domingo who was very attentive) I would strongly... More

Iberostar Costa Dorada Before I start my review I would like to point out that my background with traveling. I’ve been to more than a handful Iberostars, and RIU’s; so I know how they operate and what to expect from them. With that being said I’m grading this hotel very objectively and none biased. Where to start. Walking in the... More

Visited for a birthday getaway. The layout of the resort is very welcoming and almost like a townsquare with lots of spots to lounge and people watch in the lobby area and courtyard. Buffet was very good with gluten free options, which my friend was thrilled with. The beach was beautiful and always had loungers available, although we were usually... More
