Coral Costa Caribe
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I just returned home from my visit and had a great time! The resort is about a 20 minute taxi ride from SDQ. We arrived at 12 pm and couldn't check in until 3. They held our bags so we could explore. We were also given our "all inclusive" wristbands right away so we could start eating and drinking right away! ;) When we checked in the room was nice and cool. If you tend to be cool at night bring a blanket because the beds only have a top sheet. You also cannot flush toilet paper which took some getting used to. There were new water bottles provided everyday on the bathroom sink. The food in the restaurants was good for the money I paid! Most of the staff speaks English but many of them speak German, Russian, Portuguese, and Spanish as well.We paid for some excursions and went into the villages to horseback ride and to ride ATVs. Santiago and Ishmael were amazing tour guides. This resort isn't five stars but if you're looking for a nice place to stay with a beautiful beach then Coral Coste Caribe is the place! Ask for a blue margarita!
I've been staying at this hotel for a number of years and finally am writing a review, I'm sorry guys it took so long.The Staff there is fantastic, the same people for years and they remember us every time, hug us and make sure that everything is always taken care of. For my group and I the relationships with the people there will keep us coming back year after year. Do yourself a favor I know you are on vacation but smile be nice and take some time with them and they will repay you with the best service around.The hotel isn't brand new, but it is clean and nice. If you have a issue with something in your room just ask and they will fix it or get you another ASAP. Alberto at the check-in desk is your man!!The beach is perfect and beautiful, just be sure not to lose your towel card because there is a charge when you check out if you do. There are a lot of palm trees on the beach, if you want a chair with some shade you need to get out there early and get your spot because those areas fill up first.I recommend for dinning that you make reservations for one of the 3 restaurants on the property, they are all very good, I like the Dominican one best. You need to make a reservation at the front desk between 9-2, it worth taking the time. All though tipping isn't ever expected or asked for, I recommend tipping, they really appreciate it a lot and not many people do, so they will very much go out of the way for you above and beyond. All in all for the value, the location, and the service this hotel is Great!Marcus H.
Hotel: a bit dated but it was fine. beds comfy, shower hot (most the time) and it is on a huge site directly on the beach. Cleaner literally just made the beds, mopped the floor and cleaned the toilet bowl, but that is all we needed so was fine. All staff very friendly and English was much better than my Spanish so no complaints there. It was 90% Russian guests when we went. Wasn't a bad thing and had no problems with any guests but it meant the evening entertainment revolved around Russian popular music and the karaoke was also very Russian.Food: seriously, don't bother with the Mexican place. It was literally pointless trying it as they forgot one starter and just brought the main instead and when all inclusive they seem to think there is no need to question where a dish is. the Italian restaurant was fine (no pizza though) but the veg that came with most dishes was a bit simple/bland. The pasta ragu dish was nice and when I'd finished quicker than my fiancé, they just brought me another bowl of it to eat while I waited (which I loved as I enjoy quantity!). The Dominican restaurant was the nicest to sit in as felt at least slightly authentic and the beef in there was sublime....again the veg was a bit standard and it came with pickled onions but that's just a preference. I also ate the pork loin there which was also very good. General rule across all restaurants is the veg will be a side thought just on the plate to make it look colourful and full but the meat and fish will be nice quality. The buffet restaurant was genuinely good. such a huge selection always with rice, beans/lentils, veg smothered in garlic butter, meat and fish dishes, and a carvery section offering things like a leg or ham or pork chops. omlette station in the morning was sufficient. The snack bar is crap but serves a purpose. rarely is it fully functioning and it took 4 days until they were even providing cooked pizza. once I saw chips, hot dogs, cooked pizzas, saukraut and scraps of another beef/onion thing but normally it was just chips, hot dogs and under cooked pizza. stock replenishment is only when REALLY needed otherwise you just eat the cold food.entertainment: evening show = rubbish. embarrassingly rubbish. nightclub = rubbish and the bar is not free (the Sports bar joined onto it is free son just walk 5metres and carry your drink into the club). day entertainment = ok/good. something normally always going on the beach or near the pooldrinks: all inclusive local drinks which is fine. they don't have every bar open all the time. the one with the shortest queue is the sports bar but you must be wearing a top so remember to take one if by the pool and the queue for the pool bar is huge.main issues: they let locals in I think most days but on a sunday in particular it was soooo busy! made you feel bottom of priorities as they get served first without question as they whistle to get staff attention and shout at them (I could have tried but I already don't speak Spanish comfortably so felt too rude to shout inaudible nonsense at them). the pool was also not at all relaxing and they felt it ok to what we can only assume was 'chat up' my fiancé whenever I left where we were sat. no real trouble and I am sure was all harmless but was such a shock compared to every other day.for value for money I would go back as it is the same beach and sun as everywhere else and I never went hungry or thirsty but would def search for an alternative option first
Ive been there a few times but i notice that there was very few night life or entertainment they had kareokee before they dint have now and the casino is closed and maybe a band man to entertain in the lobby.
I have read some of the reviews on here and thought I would tell you of our experience at Costa carib . My wife and I first went to the resort in February 2015 for a week . We then went back 7 months later for ten days . Decided to do other things in 2016 but now going back to the resort in February 2017 for 14 days . It keeps getting longer every time we go. Needless to say we like this resort very much . We always had great service from the front desk to dinner to just everything . All the staff is very friendly and makes you feel like part of the family . It will be nice to see some of the great.people we met if they still work for the resort . I understand they have done see improvements since we were there last so it will be nice to see what's been done . Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing you all in February.
