Been to several Iberostar's and really enjoyed this resort. Key was the staff and they were helpful every minute. They even read my son's birthday off the passport when we checked in and made sure a "Happy Birthday Cake" was left in the room on his Birthday. Some of the locals were a little pushy on the beach trying to... More

Beautifully kept. Extremely well-maintained and very very very clean . Very nice pool and extremely nice people. Make sure to get a Poolview room. Building nine was the best building. Upgrading to a spa room does not really add very much however.

Let's start from the bottom. Rooms - eh. Beaches - ok. Activities - good. Food and liquor - very good. Service - great. People - excellent. Connie in the kids club - the reason we come back every year. But don't book in each to mid December. This is when we like to go. Hahaha.

No complaints about the hotel just been in better 5 star hotels in Mexico. The locals who come in at weekends takeover and ruin the experience. Town and area very dirty with litter everywhere. Probably the dirtiest island I have been to. Tourist areas are the cleanest.

We really enjoyed our first trip to the DR. The resort is a great value for the price. Could use a bit of updating, but overall very good. The buffet was good and we had no issues with the food. The Mexican restaurant is by far the best, but it is a bit of a challenge getting reservations. The staff... More

This is our second return to the Iberostar Costa Dorada In Puerto Plata The room was lovely, great people from reception to the good old gardeners & maintenance men. Our room was well cleaned each day with a lovely towel display to come in from the beach to. The restaurant had everything you required eggs/bacon/smoothies/ cereals toast/ omelettes. The beach...

I stayed at this resort the last 4 days. The front desk staff was extremely rude. The food was bad cheap quality and made me sick. All inclusive means they use cheap food. Service was extremely bad. They forget that you are the customer. Rooms are built with cheap materials. The TV was broken, shower broken, Insects in the room.... More
