We’ve stayed in Dorado Cottage in December 2011. The territory of the hotel is green and clean, staff is nice, rooms are big, but!!! The beach was terrible and full of algae (almost 50 sm high). The staff tried to clean it, everyday they were cleaning and the day after the sea was bringing other tons and tons of algae… you also could not swim in the sea, cause algae was covering you all… DUSGUSTING!!! They say in august the beach should be better, because course of the sea is different… maybe, but, in December, it is definitely not the “paradise” beach, you see on advertizing booklets!!!

Food: good, but not a big choice. They also at the beginning of the vacations fix you on the table. If you are a couple, they put you together with other couple… so no romantic dinners… you will always be in the company.

Light and electricity: 2-3 time during our week stay there were electricity blackouts in the evening.

Air conditioning: old and laud.
