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.

Hurricane Irma 2017

Recently stayed at the Iberostar in Costa Dorada, The weather was great until Irma struck. The staff was top notch in the handling of the storm. They gave each room a bag with sandwiches and snacks for the storm because we were told to stay inside. Heavy rains and wind kept everyone inside, but the power stayed on. Once the storm cleared, the staff worked quickly to try and get everything back in order. They set up a make shift buffet in a meeting room, and cleaned the grounds very quickly. Everything was back to normal the next day and the pool was full of tourists. The only drawback was that the lobby bar was under going a reconstruction/ remodel, ( should be finished in a couple of weeks). Was my first time trying the Japanese restaurant and I was very pleased. I didn't have a chance to go to the Mexican restaurant because of Irma. I would like to thank the management and staff for their wonderful job during the storm. Will definitely return in the future.

Nice enough but nothing fantastic

This is advertised as a luxury hotel however the level of attention by the staff is poor. On one occasion I had to phone reception 3 times over a day to get the mini bar in my room stocked. Staff should remember why they are employed.

Fab holiday

i have been to this hotel more times than I can remember, at least once sometimes twice a year for a very long time. The staff are amazing & can not do enough for you, they are the reason we return time after time! This holiday was full of laughter & great times with some amazing repeat guest friends & it did not disappoint! We were in the hotel whilst hurricane Irma passed over.. I can not pay enough credit to the hotel & its staff for keeping us safe before during & after the storm! Whilst I'm sure many of the staff had their own homes damaged they were all determined to ensure the hotel was back to normal as soon as possible.. the number of staff completing the clear up after was unbelievable & very much appreciated! The manager was also present during which was commendable & was in the thick of preparations & clearing up afterwards. The service at the beach bar was brilliant, in the restaurant fantastic & the star friends are so friendly.. Maria & Pepsi & hula hula to name a couple. I wanted to say thank you to every single one of you it was an amazing holiday & I'm already looking forward to returning soon.

Amazing location and staff

Highly recommend this hotel! The staff are incredible and always lively and there are endless activities on so you can never let yourself get bored. The Jamaican and Japanese restaurants are very high quality and the night time entertainment is very good.

Great service and accommodation

All staff were friendly and accommodating. Facility was clean and tidy. Food at a la carte restaurants was exceptional. Buffet was good but still just a buffet. Hav breakfast early at buffet and walk in to left past buffet entrance and traffic and first sitting area. Go and sit by windows with great view of grounds. Roberto's service was awesome at breakfast and dinner. Bring dollar bills to tip waiters, maids and bar tenders. This goes a long way and is an inexpensive tip which is greatly appreciated. Think about what you would tip at home with no gratuity built in. Gratuities are a big part of their salary. Shows were good and a bit campy but fun. Always felt safe at facility. If we had an issue with anything it was dealt with in a timely fashion.
