good if you get a good price

Overbooked, all people coming that day were moved to a nearby resort, Sunscape, for one to three nights. We moved back after one night and the customer service manager upgraded us to junior suite. The service was better than other DR resorts, no complains. Food in the buffet restaurant was average, but the a la carte restaurants were low quality, not worth the effort. All of them. Not enough umbrellas at the pool and beach. If you want shade, you are out of luck. Not much vegetation on the beach, so you could not find shade under trees as in other resorts.There are no bars to spend your time after dinner. No music, no entertainment in the evening anywhere except the theater shows. Very little activities at the pool. Usually in a resort there is at least a bar you can get a decent cocktail. Not here. If you get a good price and don't care about entertainment, good drinks, and you like baking in the sun the whole day, I recommend it. We are going two times a year to resorts for the last 20 years, trust our review.

Cheap

Let me start off by saying I would definitely book with cheap Caribbean vacations again, that being said I would not go back to this hotel or to Puerto Plata again. I haven't been away in 11 years all of wanted was clear blue Caribbean ocean, what I got was water that looked like a good day in Long island. I couldn't even see my feet in the water. We paid an extra 300 US dollars to go on an excursion to see the Caribbean like Waters and it was well worth that money for the day. The good was when we arrived in the Dominican Republic at the airport it was organized with what bus we were to get on, I recommend praying the extra for the transportation from airport to hotel through cheap Caribbean. When we arrived at the hotel a representative from cheap Caribbean welcomed us and have us the low down on the resort, the locals, and set up transportation back to airport on departure day, with his cell phone number to call for anything. The resort itself was esthetically beautiful and big. Pool was amazing. The roll was pretty with a balcony, bit the air-conditioning smelled very moldy when it was running and was almost unbearable. The restaurant choices and food was less then desirable and u had to make reservations to the 3 restaurants and could only eat there once. They had a buffet and the food was just not good. They allow vendors on the resort that are continuously haggeling u which is uncomfortable. Not enough chairs to enjoy the pool. The first day we were told they had a gift for us so I priced to the "VIP" office were they told me they were going to let us check out their sister resort all paid for for the day. I specifically asked what the catch was if I had to listen to a sales pitch it purchase a time share ect.. I was told no definitely not. So we went as soon as we got in the car the salesman started his pitch. We asked to be brought right back. Lastly gossiping like housekeeping didn't get to it took everyday till almost 6 pm.

What's to Love

Situated on a great stretch of beach and away from the main Costa Dorada complex, so it feels a little more secluded.

 

What We'd Change

Getting a pool lounger during the day can be hard unless you get one early in the day, so rise and shine!

 

Why You Should Go

It's only a short cab ride from the entertainment that Playa Dorada offers. The hotel has a great selection of restaurants and some good entertainment for the evenings.
