Our Opinion

One of the most beautiful resorts in all of the Dominican. Top notch food, service, amenities, pools and rooms. The expansive buffet leaves nothing to be desired and overall, this is the best you will get in Puerto Plata. Recommended without hesitation.

Set in lush tropical gardens and designed in grand Colonial style, this expansive hotel manages to offer an intimate feel with its romantic gazebos, winding walkways, and colourful peacocks roaming the grounds. Gaze into one of the small ponds to watch the ducks and turtles splash about, or take a splash yourself in the large free-form pool. Iberostar Costa Dorada has it all: fabulous beach, great food, and a variety of excellent facilities - including spa services!

Location: Beachfront, 25 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from downtown Puerto Plata.

Great holiday second time

Left Canada from the 5th to 19th of April to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. We asked for more ballroom Latin music for seniors and the response was great we were able to dance every night before the show. It was very special for us, thank you to the lovely lady. Rossina Garcia the trip adviser manager was a very delightful lady. Sorry to Carolina and Soviada, we could not see you before leaving. Love them both. Very happy to see all our friends from last year. They all made us feel very welcome. There were beautiful flowers and fruit and wine upon arrival. The show, the food, the garden, especially the staff's great smiles, Jullien, Anna, Frank, Kennedy, Carlo, Rosa and the beautiful smiling cleaning lady who introduced me to her lovely daughter. Hope to return soon. -Jim and Evelyne (Mama and Papa) and Robert and Sylvia

Very nice hotel

Check in went ok no welcome drink though, hotel and grounds are amazing specially with the flamingos, turtles and peacocks, pool made our costumes a mucky yellow/greeny colour n the pool cut all the bottom of our feet ended up having to wear socks in pool, kids club was really good daughter enjoyed it so much big thanks to the woman that run it they work so hard putting on shows with the kids in them every night, the lion king show is a must to watch it was fantastic, thanks to batman for making a effort with my daughter n the secret handshake they did every time he saw her, thanks to the woman that handed out towels didn't get your name but you always had a smile on your face n made us laugh every day, beach was really nice was windy tho in afternoon, plenty of sun beds to use, did get really busy on the weekends with the locals some were very rude and pushed in at the bar n restaurants, Domingo in the main restaurant is a star he made sure we was sat on the same table for the full length of our stay very friendly n polite. me, hubby n daughter all got diarrhoea but that could of been down to anything, got bitten a few times by them pesty mosquitoes, daughter didn't get bit once n she only had one of them protection bands on, Mexican wasn't very nice there was no atmosphere in there maybe play some Mexican music just was very dull, Brazilian was really nice and the meat was to die for, we did the outback safari, ocean world and puerto plata tour and cable car ride to mount Isabel excursions all fantastic and a must to see the real Dominican Republic, all in all we had a fantastic time and will defo be going back in the future just some things want some attention to push it up to a 5 star for me, THE POOL WANTS RESURFACING!!! Not just patching up in places!! And find out what is making costumes turn a funny colour!! Thanks for a lovely time tho

Fabalous week end

My first visit to the country and first time user of this hotel. This is an older hotel however, the friendly and hard working staff made my stay as comfortable as a 5 star hotel. The food was very good 24/7. I have been to more morden hotels but they can compare to the service I received at this resort.

Beautiful, relaxing resort

We stayed here from June 4-11, 2017. The resort is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The staff was AMAZING! Especially Miguel and Marlon in the Star Prestige area. They went out of their way every day to help us and make sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely return to this resort!
