Visited Doral Resort second week of April 2012. Doral is expensive...quite expensive...at this time of year. WHY? A small city of Orthodox Jewish folks migrate to resorts during Passover to avoid having to deal with all the prep work at home related to the event. Thus, there were about 1500 staying at Doral. This drove prices up which was not really good for 8 guys planning to stay and golf. The pools were jammed with families all day each day - no seats available. The good news is the courses were quiet and so were the restaurants...they are not Kosher. We befriended a few of our Jewish attendees and they shared the whole story about why they trek from New York to Doral. I have leaked some of it out already but won't go into the details. The resort is VERY tired. It is run down and poorly maintained. The staff are not friendly nor attentive. The rooms are tired and in desperate need of an upgrade - or knock down. The courses seem to be going to seed - the kind of maintenance you would expect at a place where PGA events are held was just not there. On the bright side the restaurants, both recently renovated, were fantastic. The Spa was pretty good too but already showing signs of lack of attention to detail.
Travelers should be wary of Doral until Trump is finished with his $200 million dollar upgrade. Go to South Beach instead!
