We had this hotel recommended by our son so we visited the Dominican Republic for the first time without the usual concerns. The hotel Is surrounded by beautiful grounds which are well tended. The public rooms are all cooled by fans and have comfortable seating areas. Of particular note is the foyer bar which feels like an upmarket club. The... More

It is amazing with the type of attention the workers at this facility treat you. the landscapes are amazing and the spa is to die for. The food is amazing and the pool area is very relaxing. I would go back any day.

We always said we would never go back to the same place again before we found this little gem but now it's difficult to find a reason to go anywhere else because every time we do go elsewhere we find ourselves comparing it to The Iberostar Puerto Plata and let me tell you, nowhere else seems to measure up to...

The hotel was clean and the attention was great! The bed was a little hard but was good. The only thing we didn't like was that we had to pay for bad wifi (internet connection). The entertainment team was great. Overall good!

This place was someplace I would not want to revisit or recommend to anyone. The hotel rooms are falling apart and the staff look miserable. Probably because they work 16 hours a day for nothing. I cant even go on because i was so disappointed.

We love this Iberostar. The staff, food, facilities, are better than the rest. We've traveled all over the Caribbean and we always return to Iberostar, Costa Dorada. I feel like the people we know there are family. I wish we were there right now.

We were at the Iberostar Costa Dorada from Feb. 13 to 20th. A lovely resort with beautiful grounds, big pool, nice rooms with balconies, great food and very friendly staff. The weather was a bit cool for half of the week with strong winds, but the last few days were lovely. We did not swim in the ocean at all... More

Living in Cornwall we decided to have our main holiday earlier this year and spend the Summer at home. We picked this hotel on a recommendation of a friend. I'm so pleased. The hotel is just as described on the Tompson website, however, the most important topic is not mentioned and that is the staff of the hotel. What a... More

We spent one week at the Iberostar Costa Dorada from 17-24 February 2015. We are a family of 5 (children ages 10, 8 and 4) and travelled with friends who have a 2 year old. My husband and I had stayed at this resort 13 years ago and have subsequently stayed three times at the Iberostar in Punta Cana. Our... More

Main points: Pool, grounds, room clean. Rooms need updating but the beds were comfortable Food, a bit boring after 6days but you wont starve. Burgers were awful though. Beach-nice but walking to left you will discover garbabe littered all over past the resorts-a shame. Staff, really sweet if you offer a smile first and act human and not a like... More
