So I will tell you the service at this resort is very good no matter where you are on the property. The rooms are very clean and everyday they clean the rooms from top to bottom. They maids seem to take a lot of pride in the work they do and it shows. From the towel boy, bartenders and waiters they are very good. I mean I could not get over the great service they provided. The beach was great as well as the water was wonderful to swim in. From a food perspective there was so much to choose from anyone can find something they like. The main buffet was very good. I found the three restaurants to be sub par and could be much better. If you don;t like smoke or smokers this is not the place to go. Smoking is allowed in almost all public areas such as the beach and the pool which i did not like at all. Our room was right on the beach and had an ocean view which was very nice. Many Europeans at this resort most very nice and friendly. As an all inclusive I found the liquor to be watered down and really bottom shelf. I had Double shot dark rum pina coladas all day and barley got a buzz. As well there was only one selection of beer " Presidente" which was ok but it would be nice to have other beers to chose from. The grounds are very well taken care of and nicely groomed. On the beach they have many beach vendors trying to sell you something from shopping to tourist trips to prostitution which became very old quickly. I did not like the beach vendors at all. Overall this was a very enjoyable trip and the weather was great. I did like this resort but I would not return due to the beach vendors and the smoking that was allowed almost everywhere.

I stayed at the ibeorstar for two weeks and in them 2 weeks I met some amazing people in the entertainment department who I will keep in contact with. Many of the star friends and even jonathan who looks after the towels there have become family they are excellent. I found Hulu Hulu, Jonathan, Chocolate, Dee Dee, Pinky and pop eye were some of the most loveliest hard working people there I will definitely be returning to be able to see them again, The staff in the buffet was so lovely especially with my little nephew who is one they would keep him happy and play with him whilst giving us amazing service. This is an amazing holiday place and a must go I will go back. Thankyou to the animation team for making it a faultless holiday from leigh smith

Room Tip: All rooms are good all have a good view so there is no need to worry about where you are.

Territory: Hotel family - cozy - but apparently 4 star. Staff unobtrusively caring for the territory all day, but room needs some repair. You can always find free sun loungers on poolside and on the beach . The first three days there was a lot of seaweed in the ocean and on the beach, but staff tries to clean it. Unfortunately mosquitoes near the pool heavily bit us; also we saw a lot of people bitten by mosquitoes. It is a little bit tainted our holiday. Lots of greenery and flowers.

Food : Very tasty and varied, everyone can find what he wants . In 12-30 p.m. staff cooks sea food and barbecue on the beach with elements of the show. We recommend to go to the Brazilian restaurant by appointment, although we like to dine in the main buffet as well .

Entertainment: Super animation team, I recommend not to miss the evening shows , and shows at the pool . There are no water slides, but children's pool and the adult pool where not deep. Also we recommend to visit a children's club , they hold a shows on stage with children, our daughter was delighted.

Staff: Very polite , friendly and hospitable. We’d like to thank all the hotel staff for a wonderful holiday! Special thanks to our waiter Domingo and young lady in the kid's club Conny!

I strongly advise everyone to spend their holidays in this hotel!

Only hicup all week was at check-in...slightly disorganized with large crowd checking in at once, lined up then had to go out of line to fill out papers then line up again, would have been easier if the rep handed it out on the bus as we were all going to Iberostar. Didn't get the building we requested and originally given a room looking at the service area of the other hotel but front desk was very accomodating in changing to a pool view. Room was nicer than expected and shower pressure was awesome. Super friendly staff and very good food. Tons of activities.
We travel yearly and this is only the second resort that we have liked enough (the other in Mexico) that we will go back to. Looking for a destination spot for our wedding next year and strongly thinking that this is the one!

We were there from March 15th to 24th. We were in building 3 and overlooked the pool. Our room was large and very clean. This resort is a perfect size, easy walk to everything. We were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff, best we have encounter in the last 6 years we have been travelling to the DR and Mexico. Food was great, lots of choice. Loved everything, but a couple of favorites: Beach Barbeque, Brazillan A' La Carte, Music in the lobby in the evening. We split our time between the pool and beach, both were great. We had the best weather too, only 1 hour of rain on one early evening. Our first time to an Iberostar resort, we will be back to this one and want to try other Iberostar resort too. Thank you Iberostar Costa Dorada, don't think there would be anything that would have made our week better. PS: Thanks for the fruit plate and bottle of rum upon our arrival.
