We stayed for a wk at Doramar. We were originally booked in at Tamarindos but they moved us here. I cannot fault these apts at all. They had good facilities and were clean. A bit dated but you get what you pay for. Free air con was very good. There was no balcony but the windows are large and open very wide. We stayed in room 604 and had a lovely sea view. The staff are very friendly especially Pila on reception she was a lovely lady and nothing was too much trouble. I borrowed an hairdryer twice and you just had to sign a piece of paper and it was free to borrow. The pool area is nice and clean. The bar below called El Dorado was very good and had nightly entertainment which was always busy. These apts are in a great location. I would defo stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

Been here twice, you get exactly what it says on the tin!! Basic, clean and extremely friendly. HUGE tip if you are staying there. Do NOT get your TV changed for an English version, keep the Spanish freeview box. If you play around with the remote control audio controls (every TV is different) you can get at least 4 or 5 channels changed to English speaking. A handy tip that was passed to us when it was far too hot outside!!I

Room Tip: No need, they are all basically the same.

We spent a week at the Doramar in March. We really enjoyed our stay. It's in a great location, close to everything. The staff were really helpful, always someone on reception, cleanliness and value for money are incomparable. Don't be put off by "lesser reviews" - you could not find a better place to stay for the price!!! It's a 3 star hotel & low cost, the rooms/apartments are plenty big enough & have everything you need. The bar is good & we had evening entertainment every night.
Top Tip: The Doramar is close to everything, shops, beach, bars & night clubs. We particularly like the marina, grab a drink or table outside for a meal & people watch. Our favourite bar is called Kaleido. Great atmosphere & music.

Stayed: March 2015

Stayed for a week at the end of August/start of September with 3 friends. Spacious enough, but no balconies at all in the hotel which is a downside! Most receptionists were lovely, bar one dark haired male - very rude and unhelpful. It's a good place to use if you just use the hotel as a base. A makeover would do this place wonders.

My partner and I stayed at the Doramar for 5 nights at the end of August and had a wonderful holiday!

The check in was quick and easy upon arrival and we we given everything we needed. 24 hour reception which is always a bonus just incase. Our room 505 was clean and spacious with good airconditioning system. The bedroom a little cramped but when we pushed the beds together, it was fine. For only 2 of us there was plenty of room! No window in the bathroom and rooms do not have balconies which disappointed me at first but was really never an issue. Large windows kept the place bright and they opened very wide so can't complain!
There was mops, brushes, pots and pans, a toaster and hob in kitchenette.

We never came across any bugs (ants, cockroaches etc) the whole time thankfully. The maid tended to the room to replace towels once in our stay and when we ran out of loo roll, I simply asked at reception for more and was given it without hesitation.

The pool was good size and clean. There are only 20 sunbeds in the complex but there was never a problem for us getting one. We never came to pool til 11am or later and never had any issues. Was not overly pleased that you had to pay €2 per sunbed per day. It should definitely be included as a resident but no big issue and complimentary WiFi!

We had food from the bar several das for lunch and it's of good quality and extremely affordable! Staff are lovely. Drinks decently priced also!

The hotel is pretty central to everything. Up a short hill off the main road which leads to the Puerto Marina and 24 hour square with a left turn (400-600m) and the beach front with a strip of bars and restaurants with a right turn (800m) Beach can also be accessed from a flight of steps opposite the hill hotel is on. Beach is massive and comfortable and clean. We often visited hotel pool in morning and beach in afternoon. Best of both worlds!

Good facilities for storing luggage and showering after checking out. Cannot be faulted. We got this holiday pretty cheap and didn't expect very much but the Doramar is a decent 3 star and we were pleased with everything we got! We really enjoyed our stay at the Doramar and would definitely not hesitate to stay again!
