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.

Relaxing Sunshine holiday

Fast and efficient check in- suitcases taken up to the room by staff. Large spacious room (top floor block 2). Very clean with comfortable beds, safety deposit box and mini bar filled daily. Coffee machine provided but no kettle. Iron and ironing board.Cleaned on a daily basis,frequent change of towels and bedding.Large restaurant with 3 specialty - restaurants - Mexican, Japanese & Brazilian. All food was beautifully cooked with plenty of choice for all tastes - infact too much choice! Wine served at the table with friendly staff - a small tip and a smile goes a long way. At certain times however it got rather busy but tables were cleared quickly and relaid to avoid any waiting. Theme nights provided to give more variety to the excellent choices.Regards the specialty restaurants - we found them a little disappointing. The food provided was nothing that you couldn't get in the main restaurant. More emphasis was needed regards culture, foods, music of the country. The experience of all 3 restaurants needed to be more of a learning experience as well as an enjoyable experience. Lacked atmosphere and ambiance. Gardens were beautifully kept and were constantly maintained. Large clean pool with separate kiddies pool. Access to the beach a few yards away with plenty of sunbeds. Sunbeds around the pool were quite limited - most or all were being reserved by towels as early as 5am - crazy!Snack bar with bar, a swim up bar and an additional bar serving drinks from 10am. Service by all - very good.Animation team were superb - catered for all ages day and night - young and old. Evening shows were entertaining, varied and of good quality. Different areas for sitting, in or out - waiter service provided.The hotel in all areas provided beautiful and tasteful decoration - definitely worthy of a 5* status. If looking for a sunshine holiday - brilliant hotel but a little isolated. If you like to get out and about you need to book organised tours which can work out quite expensive-plenty to choose from however.

Great Service

My teenage sons and I travelled together with two other families over March break and had a wonderful vacation. The rooms were clean, the food was ok (my son and I are picky eaters but the others never went hungry!) but the service there is outstanding! Our server at the buffet restaurant was Nelson, and he was attentive and had a table set for us every breakfast and evening, five star service! Bartenders were great, but a little greater if you tipped them I found. Security staff was awesome, especially the morning of our flight when i desperately needed into my inroom safe! Finally but certainly the most memorable part of the resort was the animation team - they kept our kids busy every day and their energy and enthusiasm was over the top, especially considering the long days in the heat! Special mention to Justin Bieber, Cappuchino, and Sexi Pappi - always smiling and joking, made our kids feel special every day! Definitely would love to return again!

Iberostar is a star!

My 9 year old son & I really enjoyed our March Break at this hotel. For once, an all-inclusive place with great food! It was a pleasant surprise. Loved the Wed night buffet with all you can eat lobster tails. My son really enjoyed the Japanese restaurant and also the Mexican restaurant. My son loved the soft serve ice cream at the snack bar. The pool was big enough to find an area to play in and though people get up VERY early to grab their pool loungers, we were always able to find a couple with some shade. The beach is small but it's well groomed and only gets a bit seaweedy later in the day. The room was very quiet and we never heard other guests, but we were close to the theatre so we would hear the shows at night, though they ended by 11. Our concierge was Edgar & we thought he was a terrific help. We also liked the photographer who came around with the macaw to take pictures. They were expensive but worth it. Bravo, Iberostar Costa Dorada. We hope to see you again soon! Hasta la vista, amigos!

Have just come back from a week at Iberostar Costa Dorada and all I can say is the staff are excellent. Friendly and respectful. Not invasive at all. Grounds and beach are kept clean and tidy throughout the day. The rooms are clean and the staff are professional and honest. I forget to close the safe one day and nothing was taken. Could not recommend this resort more if I tried. Restaurant staff are attentive and notice when your glass needs filling or topping up. Check in and out was quick and efficient. Fabulous resort and would go back in a heartbeat
