Shabby,but loveable,due to indefatigable,dedicated staff. Once visited,often revisited. Like going to find your elders (or youngers,maybe in some respects)still there with open arms. Try it and you'll be open-eyed with their enthusiasm.

The reception and bar staff were friendly. Sofas and chairs in lobby and bar area were tired and grubby. The room was clean, but the floor was not swept or mopped during our stay. Tiny bath and a shower that just dribbled water. We booked for 11 nights but got transferred to the sister hotel in C'an Pastilla on the... More

Arrived at the hotel and didn't look too bad once inside rooms were like a postage stamp! Swimming pool and snack bar were filthy with flies all over the food being cooked! Pool was again tiny and sunbeds were shocking! Shower in room dribbled and the toilet had a hole above the cistern that looked like it had been filled... More

As the title suggests my family ascended this hotel again the last week in Sept/ 1st week in October 2014. We arrived earlier than check in usually allows but we were warmly welcomed and accommodated with no fuss what so ever. On this stay we were situated to the rear of the building on the 4th floor with a pleasant... More

Booked as a last minute cheap holiday with two friends the week before we flew. The hotel we booked was not available and we were advised about this hotel over the telephone by Sunmaster. Having read the reviews on here we spent a week terrified of what we would be going into and considering cancelling our holiday. We were pleasantly... More

Very disappointing stay here 1st week in Sept. Basically hotel is old and it doesn’t just need a refurb it desperately needs a serious overhaul. Our room on the 6th floor had wallpaper peeling off the wall and a crack that I could put my finger in that ran down the wall beside the door and stopped the door closing... More

This hotel is in need of some TLC, although most of the staff were really nice the cleanliness(or lack of) and the food let this down badly. You have to be one of the first to enter the dining room for meals or it will be gone and no hope of getting anymore from the kitchen,The pool area and outside... More

Booked to go with friends one week before we went, wanted cheap all inclusive, and got just that! You can't expect 5* when your paying for 3* and I would rate it that! People complained about the food but we never went hungry and even my vegetarian friend managed to eat every meal! Lots of salad, always fresh baguette and... More

The Isla Dorada is your typical tired 70's hotel, much in need of refurbishment. The worst thing was the food. We've always gone all inclusive, but this was the worst we've ever had for food choice. Disappointed with the description given by Lowcostholidays.com, as we chose this hotel over cheaper ones because it had a sauna and jaccuzi, only to... More
