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.

Best resort we've ever been to!!

There was a group of 29 of us who travelled here together for a wedding vow renewal. All 29 of us loved the resort and nobody had any complaints. The resort is beautiful, clean, and easy to navigate. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and always smiling and joking around with us!! The food was incredible. The Brazilian restaurant was delicious, don't miss it. There was lunch on the beach every day, sometimes a pig on a spit, or a large paella or a BBQ. Our rooms were great. Huge beds with very comfortable mattress and lots of comfy pillows!! There is soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion in the rooms, stocked daily. There is soda pop, water, and beer in your fridge every day, also stocked daily. Each room has an iron and ironing board, and a hair dryer. The rooms did smell slightly musty but this is typical of a tropical destination, and you don't even notice it after a day or two. The evening shows were typical of an all inclusive resort and you could hear them anywhere near the lobby, so you didn't have to sit right in the actual theatre to listen to it. There was also some entertainment around the lobby areas at night, one or two man bands playing live music. The pool is very large and there are games and events going on almost every day. It was easy to find a shady spot and always easy to find loungers.The beach was nice. There is quite a lot of seaweed, but if you walk around it you can find spots where the water is clear and mostly calm. Some days were a bit windy with sand blowing up. The beach is very large and there are lots and lots of lounges and shade available. This resort is amazing and we will definitely be coming back. Thank you Iberostar Costa Dorada staff for a wonderful, relaxing, fun vacation!!

Been to better places

I am sad to report that I was not very satisfied with this resort. This was a family vacation for a family reunion and it was not the best. First I will begin by saying I am from the Dominican Republic and this place was embarrassing. The food I give it a 4/10 even the Dominican style food at the buffet was terrible. The staff is not friendly I can't tell you how many times I would walk pass a staff member in the morning or afternoon and I had to be the first to say good morning or good afternoon to them they always looked angry. It took for ever for them to turn the tables over between people eating at times you would sit a table thinking it was clean to find out it wasn't. The staff at the buffet are not the best takes forever to get water, coffee served to you no matter how many times you ask. If anything g the wait staff just stand around complaining about there jobs in Spanish ( which I was able to understand).Had issues with the cleaning staff they kept cleaning the rooms above me and dumping the dirty water out the balcony which the majority of the time my family and I would be sitting out enjoying the ocean view and get a bucket of dirty water splashed all over us and our clothes that where outside drying I complained twice at the front desk to please stop and they told me they would and everyday it was still happening. The small refrigerator is awful never kept things cold. I would not recommend this resort.
