Day 1: I arrived at the Beach House Playa Dorado on 13 Aug 16 around 530 pm. I met with Patricia and filled out all the required documentation. I was given a handout in Spanish and asked for it to be translated into English, and it was. I was assigned a room in Bldg 19. I had to ask the... More

I am giving the hotel two stars because of the good employees they have. The entertainment group is amazing. The attention the waiters give you while you are eating its top notch. HOWEVER.. The food is terrible. It has no uniqueness to it. They repeat the type of food and the food taste bad. The hotel needs some maintenance. Once... More

I am not sure where these other people who gave good reviews stayed but it certainly was not Playa Dorada Beach house! I was appalled at the conditions of the rooms and the resort was like a ghost town. The food was slim pickings and gross and there were birds constantly picking at the buffet. It took a half hour...

The person Patricio was a total liar, she fabricated everything down to the link she sent to view the "updated property." The rooms look NOTHING like what is sent in the link. They even have that same gallery scrolling on the tv in the lobby The room 1921 smelled like mildew upon entering, the wall safe was a joke it... More

This was my second visit to this resort. The renovated rooms are nice and clean. The food was good, the beach and pool very clean. The highlight was the Animation team. Ninja, Leka,, Chuchuwa, 16, Cheeky Monkey, Lesa and Dora (to name just a few) made me feel like family. I look forward to going back.

staff really goes out of their way to make you feel like you're most important person there. That's why we came back because of the wonderful people that work with guests. Food was ok always something to choose from. Beach steps away from the room and same goes for the pool. Wouldn't recommend it for families with small kids as... More

Since, i got there, i really felt confortable with the service and the people are very nice. Nevertheless, there's nothing that i liked more than the animation, specially two dancers of the staff, their names or nicknames, are weird for me, but funny as they are, the names are chuchuwaaaa! :D And Leka :).

I don't know where to start. Pros: very friendly staff. Beautiful beach. Decent food. Clean bedrooms. Cons: the place was pretty empty. There was not much of a night life. The pool wasn't all that clean. We only went in the beach. Sometime the food was cold.

Upon arrival staff was friendly and helpful. We came because of complement trip. 1st room was not good. When we was switched to vip the room was excellent.
