- All Inclusive Features
While celebrating my birthday week, December 2-9, 2017 in Dominican Republic at the Carol Costa Caribe Resort, I experienced difficulty in charging my cell phone. This was only my second day there and I could not be without a cell phone. So, I went to the gift shop to see if I could buy a new cable to charge my phone's battery. The gift shop clerk, Libanesa, was so incredibly helpful in testing both my cable and attachment to ascertain which one was bad. Unfortunately, both were bad. I was a little uncomfortable spending my money and possibly not resolving my problem. Libanesa, agreed to charge my phone to show that the cable and attachment were good and was charging my phone before finalizing the sale. I am very grateful to the great customer service and professionalism displayed by Libanesa. Her actions made such a favorable impact on me that it made my entire resort experience wonderful and relaxing.Many Thanks Libanesa,Ray C.Miami, FL USA
Coral Costa CaribeThis resort is conveniently located in Juan Dolio Beach about 15 to 20 minutes east of (SDQ) Las Americas International Airport. I visit the Island and different resorts on a regular basis and for the most part the amenities and hotel offerings are similar. Nonetheless, at Coral Costa Caribe one can easily fall in love with the genuine service the employees provide to customers. This resort is family oriented with lots of activities for everyone. If you stay long enough, be sure to sign up for the different excursions (there is a fee for these). My family and I liked this resort so much that we became members of the IVC Club and visit the resort 3 to 4 times a year. Here is a list of names you will be sure remember:Ramon and Ruddy; these two will make sure your check-in and check-out go smooth. They will handle just about anything related to your room and stay. If for any reason things do not seem to go your way, then Belkis is there to save the day. Pedro and Llenkis; with these guys at the beach you can safely take a nap, go for a swim or enjoy your favorite drink. They are gurus at making you feel at ease. One thing we like to see happen is for the IVC beach area to be moved closer to the new IVC Lounge area. When you request a drink at the IVC beach area they have to get it from the IVC Lounge and by the time they make it back, the ice on your whiskey has already melted. Alex and Amauri; if you feel like cooling off from the sun then visit these two in the new IVC Lounge and bar. They have snacks and your favorite drink with a contagious smile.Jesus; if you like or dislike the food at the buffet then Jesus is the guy to credit or smack in the head…Jesus has done a good job, the buffet has gotten better over the years. Although he is not a fan of (Con Con) crispy rice, my family, friends and I would very much like to see crispy rice as an item in the buffet. Just like they had it before by the soup area. But don't worry, If the buffet is not in mind for dinner then you can enjoy eating at the Mexican, Italian or Dominican (a la carte) restaurants. Don't forget to request the Fiery Sambuca drink for desert. The restaurants are by appointment and they fill fast. Best time to secure an appointment is early mornings.Kelvin and Franklin; these guys are special, there are bars randomly located throughout the resort and sometimes the bartenders get busy and may run out of your favorite drink. Not to worry, just flag down Kelvin or Franklin and your favorite drink will magically get restocked. Unfortunately, Jack Daniels Whiskey is not in the list of drinks and we would very much like the resort to have Jack Daniels Whiskey available to, at least, the IVC Members. Of course, I have to mention the “Chocolate Friends” entertainment all day and night. After the nightly show, you tuck the kids away in the room and head to the night club in the resort. When you get tired of dancing and drinking at the club, head down to the snack bar by the beach. They have “Sancocho” typical Dominican soup to help dilute the alcohol. Don’t forget to tip, if you like the service, they really appreciate you letting them know by tipping them. $1 to $10 dollars tipping is common, $10 being you are really satisfied with the service.Enjoy your trip!Oscar.
As you understood from the title I just came back from the 7 times on the road of my paradise vacation in Dominicana. If last year progress was on the beginning ( wi-fi in the every room, complete renovation on the main floor level, improved food quality and variety...) Now ( all brand new elevators, which a talking to you, fast and reliable; like in my room: a brand new AC, with the lowest temperature of 17°C, which was good enough even on very hot day (we kip it on the dry mode, low fan). At night was getting cold, so we made 26-28°C. Also, we were sleeping under 2 blanket). I was surprised, there wasn't mosquitoes during all vacation and almost no flies. Also plumbing was in good standard: a brand new plumbing in our room, no more problems with hot, cold water and electricity. It was the first time when was no humid during my vacation. Menu got bigger and better. For the Premier IVC members was just opened a new launch room with the sea view, AC, alcohol open bar, snacks and outdoor swings. It was open 9:00am-11:00pm. Soon will be 24/7. This year like never before it's became extremely popular by Russians.
I cannot understand the negative reviews except some people come just looking for anything they can whine about. Everything about this resort was great from check in on. My wife and my room as well as our daughter and son in laws were great, awesome views, great quiet air conditioning , daily maid service was excellent , no problems with water pressure , no problems whatsoever . Plenty of beach chairs on a most awesome beach. Food at buffet was always good and the two ala cartes that we ate were awesome, Dominican at fogon and Tex Mex at Santa Fe were both the best food I've ever had at an all inclusive. Benedino at the pool bar deserves a special mention as he was excellent. We will return and recommend highly to anyone.
Let me start by saying that this is not a 5 star luxury resort, so if that is what you are looking for then you should just stop here. The resort itself is not bad, could use a little refreshing but overall had great amenities. The pool is nice, and the beach is fabulous, although you will get approached by people selling massages, cigarettes, and sarongs on a regular basis. The food is okay -- I didn't try any of the specialty restaurants, although the Tex-Mex one looked good (it was closed on the day I tried to make reservations). All of the staff were amazing and super accommodating... helped me negotiate with the cab drivers for fare reduction and were overall really pleasant, the service was great. Based on the resort alone I would rate this resort a 3 or 3.5 and would consider going back again.HOWEVER -- My room was horrible. I noticed a musty smell as soon as I entered but between my many drinks and not spending much time in my room it took me until the second night to realize that it's because there was black mould seeping through the walls in various places. I also highly suspect that the room has bedbugs, which I did not see but I woke up with what appeared to be bites that multiplied each night. Some of my pillows smelled like other people's stale sweat (luckily I had 2 beds to choose from) and there were blood stains on the sheets (although its also possible I was just squishing bedbugs in my sleep).
