We were at the Dorado in June 2007 for one week. We had a great time. The food and drinks were wonderful and plentiful (especially the fresh fish and steak.) We booked a standard ocen view room and when we arrived we asked for an upgrade. At first, they wanted to charge us extra. But, I didn't say anything just smiled and he said. "You are not going to be happy unless we give you a suite for the week. " He was very gracious and upgraded our room. We were very pleased. The room was clean and had two balcanies. Which we loved. We had a king bed and a pull out sofa. The room was very comfortable and roomy. There was four of us traveling (2 adults and 2 children). The staff and service was excellent. During our stay the staff was friendly, they would greet us by our name. The first night at the Dorado we had a storm and a blackout (I didn't mind, it was an adventure-my kids were kind of taken back from the lightening and rain but, I assured them we were fine. The generator kicked in about 10 minutes into the blackout. The weather was hot and humid but, what the heck, we were in Mexico. The Dorado is in a great location and the ocean views are spectacular. The pool was alot of fun too, especially the swim up bar and water slides. For the price it was a great vacation. If you want total first class you have to pay alot more money. The Dorado offers excellent ocean views, relaxation, great service and food, lots of fun for a great price. We love the people in Ixtapa. We had a great time and would recommend the Dorado to everyone. One last note, when we left they said that there would be a $6.00 charge for a/c in the taxi. I just shook that comment off, I didn't want that comment to ruin my experience with the Dorado. (What did he think I was just born yesturday) The taxi driver was honest and charged us the right price. They work very hard to assure everyone has a great time. We tipped for the service and upgrade. Have a great time in time in Ixtapa.
