Arriving to the resort was not a problem. Being an RCI member, our expectations were higher. No welcome drinks which is OK. However, the room we requested was not what we received. We were travelling with a party of 4 (all girls) and we wanted a two bed room joining suite with ocean view, this did not happen. The Reservation... More

We asked if we could get a room on the second or third floor after seeing a cockroach in our room when we first arrived. No problems. Bar service and daytime entertainment was excellent. Some night time entertainment was a bit boring, but other nights it was great. The A La Carte dinners were very good, and didnt seemed too... More

My partner and I stayed here 2 weeks from March 28th until April 11th. We had a great relaxing holiday. Great value for money. We only paid 1.150 euro per person for 2 weeks, flights inclusive (from and to Brussels, Belgium). It's officially a 4-star hotel, our tour operator gives it a 3,5 star appreciation, which we think is correctly... More

Just got back from 2 weeks at this hotel and wished we could have stayed longer. It is by far one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in and I've stayed in many 5 Star hotels. OK the vendors on the beach are a pain but just say no and away they go. The time sharers are also a... More

Yes, I've been in other resorts for the same price and this room was small. They didn't come and clean at the same time every day so sometimes we had no fresh towels to use. Misteriously bed cover disappeared and appeared. Sand was left on the floor being brushed around and against the walls... cheeky! Coffee nor tea was being... More

This was my first time travelling to anywhere tropical. I loved every minute of the trip, the resort was beautiful, the beach amazing, the food and atmosphere was great! The first couple days we didn't see any beach vendors and set out for them, some deals were alright but they never bothered us if we said we weren't interested. If... More

Dreadful room, disgusting food, all the charm of a prison - along with the looks. The worst that all-inclusive has to offer. AVOID!!!!

I travelled here last year with a group of five guys, and I had one of the best times ever. I have been to several other places and have learned that if you go with an open mind even the most disgusting place can be fun. Playa Dorada however was far from disgusting. No problems upon check in, the rooms... More
