Stayed here last weekend for a company outing. I had read some of the posted reviews and I was worried. We arrived after midnight and was put in building 7. The room was very small with a tiny bathroom. Mold was visible around the A/C vent in the bathroom and the smell was very strong. Since it was late, I kept my mouth shut. There was no food service available due to the time, We were served a small bowl of snack mix with our beer.
We requested a room change in the morning and were taken by golf cart to building 10 which seemed to be much newer. Our room was over 2x the size of the first room. The ice machine was in the lower level and in the opposite wing from our room. It was a 5 minute walk for us but the ice bucket was well insulated and the ice remained intact through the night. Lunch prices in the bar/grill seemed high. $15 for a tasty mahi sandwich with fries and condiment sized plastic container of cole slaw. Main pool area is odd with a large wading pool where towels are available and a deeper pool connected by patio walkways. I had to walk back to the wading pool to return the "signed out" towel. A nice waterfall feature near the wading pool can be used for a good neck/back massage. Teenagers said the water slide was cool.
The wait staff is very friendly but this wasn't enough to erase the impression of the bad first room. The best thing about the Doral is that it's smoke-free. I'm glad this stay wasn't on my dime.
