“Good value for money!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

Nice hotel, spacious rooms, clean. Food and all inclusive formula were more then ok. Animation and leisure for the kids very nice. Wellness area in the basement...
Only the location was not very attractive. The beach is very small, lots of stones.
We were glad that we rented a car for an entire week, so we could enjoy some other places....

Never the less a very nice holiday and surely one of the better deals of the last years if we consider value for money.

Being in the trade ourselves, we wanted a holiday in which we could take a complete rest and unwind, so wanted a quiet place with excellent amenities, in good working order and well managed. Dorado Beach hotel ticked all the boxes. The service was excellent, the food (all inclusive deal) was delicious and with great variety, the hotel was in excellent order and had a good mix of modernity and ethnic character. The location was perfect and the town of Alguineguin was not just a tourist resort but a 'real' Spanish fishing town with market etc. Only suggestion would be in the next round of spending buy the rooms an LCD TV - we Brits like them! But I'm ashamed I watched TV in such a beautiful place with so much to see and do. Wellness centre (spa, sauna, Turkish Bath etc) and gym were particularly spectacular, catering for the many Norwegians present, no doubt. Our relatives in Gran Canaria had recommended this place for value, location and quality and said that this particular area of Gran Canaria has a reputation for having the best climate in the world - and it truly lived up to this, even at the beginning of January. Would definitely return.

we stayed for one week in this aparthotel in a large room with a beautiful view ( although the balcony was the whole day in the shade); from the restaurant you had a lovely view over the swimming pool and looking to the sea but the food itself hasn't much variety and the presentation doesn' t give you appetite! The service at the reception was ok. We loved the heated swimming pool ( 27 ° c) and especially the wellness - complex downstairs and the solarium with jacuzzi on the 9th floor ( all free in all inclusive!)

We booked this hotel through Holiday Gems with no previous knowledge of the hotel. When we arrived we were very impressed as soon as we arrived at reception. The gentlemen behind the desk explained the resturant was about to close so he put our wristbands on said hurry down to the 1st floor so you get a good feed then we'll check you in afterwards. The next morning we woke to a lovely sea view on the second floor which was a perfect spot as we were close to all the facilities. The hotel caters for many nationalities and during our stay there was mainly Dutch and Scandinavians and everybody got on great. I would recommend this hotel especially for families and couples of all ages. The real hidden gem is the newly refurbished wellness centre in the basement, it has so many health features, too many to list and is all totally free, children are currently allowed to use it between 9-11am each day. Also on the roof they have a very modern Solarium with jacuzzi which was a lovely sun trap especially early mornings when the main pool was in the shade. The food was highly professional with lots to choose from although the chefs did like to add bucket loads of salt to every dish. overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definately plan to return within a few years.

We stayed in Dorado Beach in the last week of October, weather was sunny and warm every day. We got room 412 and it had amazing views and lots of space, there was no English channels on TV but you could spend time elsewhere.Room was very clean with a frigde and cooking facilities if needed. Pool- lovely with 2 jacuzzis,water temp 30 degrees. Lovely padling pool for kids. On the roof there is a solarium with jacuzzi, sunbeds and hammocks and also shower and water to drink. All inclusive service-food excellent, always hot and fresh with lots of choice for eberyone. Bars- very friendly staff, branded alcohols also included in all inclusive. Well equiped gym, nice gaming room and outstanding spa(free when all inclusive)with 3 pools,sun room, sauna etc. At the lobby pianist playing every evening 20.00-22.00. Sun terraces on 5th floor.Kids club with another small pool. And much more... You can rent a car from the reception and they will also organise your trips. Special thanks to Marina, Maya,reception staff, bar and restaurant staff and other people working in that hotel- you are doing a great job!!!!

My husband and I went to Dorado in October 2009, and we were so impressed we came back on 20th October and bought our 7yr old grandson, Its the first time we have ever returned to somewhere we have stayed before. Since last year they have extended their spa facilities with a wonderful indoor pool with jacuzzi jets in corners and a lie down version which came in useful as my back had gone into spasms whilst I was there so this helped. Also they had done a new computer room that was a relaxing atmosphere with low light lightning and good quality Apple computers free of charge, so one can keep contact on skype with family back home. The quality and offering of food was wonderful, I am a vegeterian and the fresh salads I enjoyed, the only thing would be to put what was in some of the mixed salads as I thought some had fish in so I did not touch. The offering of meat and fish my husband was impressed with, everything was nice and hot, and regularly replaced with fresh. Plenty of sunbeds, very clean everywhere, even the maids we would watch of a morning sweeping the drive and pavement outside of the perimeter of the hotel. Our grandson loved the pool, and the mini club which had moved and had also been updated, they allowed children in between 9 and 11 of a morning into the spa which he thought was great too. I could say so much more but there isnt enough room on here, I would just say 1 negetaive is that the bedrooms are very warm to sleep comfortly in as the ceiling fan was not adequate. We will be planning to go back again next and our granson would like to come too. Please be aware there aren't a lot of english guests here but this was not a problem to us as they were friendly enough and some did speak english, and the entertainment was spoken in all guests languages, although of an evening the entertainment was quite basic. Go to Puerto Mogan on the bus and get the boat back, and also trip to Palmitos Park which is set in the mountains, almost felt like King Kong was going to appear.

I have just returned from a one week stay at this hotel and had a very enjoyable holiday. The hotel rooms I would describe as basic but comfortable and very clean. The baloncy was really spacious with a beautiful view over the sea. I found the staff to be very helpful and the one problem I had when the hair-dryer didn't work was sorted out immediately. The pool is a good size and the whole area was very clean and tidy apart from other holiday-makers leaving empty plastic cups lying around instead of using the bins provided!! Very few English visitors so expect lots of Germans and Scandinavians. Contrary to prior reports about the food I actually found the food very edible indeed. I had stayed in a premier hotel Sept 06 all inclusive and the food was dreadful. So to arrive at this hotel which cost a lot less I wasn't expecting very much but was pleasantly surprised. The entertainment was announced each day and the team actually walked around the pool area asking people to join in but of course no one did but it looked as if they were really trying.
It is a very quiet resort but if you just want a holiday where you can lie by the pool, have a meal and a quiet drink at night then I would definitely recommend it. If you want lots of fun and entertainment then it would not be for you. My rating would be 6-7 out of 10.
