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.


Overview
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.

This hotel has it all!!

We spent two weeks at this fabulous hotel from 4th - 18th February with our two sons (6 and 2 years old). Check in was simple and straight forward and our cases were in our room in no time at all. Room was fairly basic with not much storage space for our clothes. This was the only drawback I can think of to be honest. Food was amazing! Best buffet food I have ever experienced. The three a la carte restaurants are worth checking out too. Pool and beach scene very very good. We hung out near the towel hut where you get all day sunshine. A very special mention to the hard working animation team - they really are a credit to your hotel! Cappuccino (who called me Mr Coconut Head), Wifi, Skinny, Pepsi Cola, Maria, Sexy Papi and Hulahula (best weirdest dance moves) were all first class and made our holiday one to remember forever! I'm sorry if I've missed anyone!!Bar staff and restaurant staff were all brilliant and made sure that you were happy. Sylvia our Thomson rep was also very very good and was at the hotel everyday (morning and afternoon) if you needed any assistance. Make sure you book the outback and beyond excursion - such an eye opening day out and great for families too!

Trip from 10-17 Feb

This was our first time in Puerto Plata. The beach is not the best in The Republic, the water was always muddy, you can't see your feet in knee high water. The room were nice and very clean. The buffet was good however not enough staff to clean tables. Every meals we had to wait to clean ans set tables. Only 3 restaurants a la carte, very limited seating and you must reserve. Food was ok and very limited menu. The wifi was excellent all over the hotel which was great. As for the shows in the evening, very amateur like, overall this hotel is listed as a 5 stars, but in reality is a low 4. We will not go there again

Another Great Trip Back!

3rd time to this hotel. Usually want to explore different places but have yet to find a better place. Was nervous going back that it would not be what we remembered.Bed is so comfortable that we slept 10 hours per night.Only ate at buffet. Changed every night. They have Italian, seafood and Gluten free every day. Ate salads twice a day. Only resort I have never been sick.Pool bar, shows, entertainment staff, food, beach, so good!Shout out to the amazing entertainment staff that were so good and always remembered you. Thanks to Wifi, Capucinno, Skinney, Pepsi, Dania, and Maria. Also our amazing pool bartender Leonardo who always remembered what we drank. You guys made our vacation! We will be back to see you soon!

Very Good Resort

Excellent place to stay. Room was super clean & cleaned great everyday. All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Resort has above average buffet (compared to any I've been to). Pool was very nice and big, great swim up bar. Beach is nice soft powder. Water was a little rough but super fun. Would recommend as a great well priced resort.
