Still needs upgrades

We were there Sept 30th thru Oct 5th (slow season). Which I liked because there were no crowds but probably why only one reservation restaurant was open each night. We tried the Mexican and Brasilian and found them to be of good quality. The buffet and snack bar were not so good except for the omelette station for breakfast and the pasta station for dinner. Drinks were good but limited on the blender drinks since they had the filled 'slurpee machines' and no blenders. The beach and pools were good. Service friendly. As some mentioned the cleaning comes and takes towels in morning, returns to clean later and returns even later with towels. I think they have a shortage of towels since it's the weirdest thing I've seen. We were napping one day so they left clean towels in laundry bag on door. we brought them in and hung them up so next day they wouldn't think they were dirty. next day went to breakfast and when we returned the towels were gone from the rack never used. Room not cleaned yet. Weird. Luckily we had our beach towels to take an after breakfast shower. I think they are trying to make improvements to some sloppy fixes done in the past but not quite up to a 4 palm yet in my mind. Even though it was probably only at 20-30% capacity it was still hard to find shade around the pool. Lots of loungers, shortage of shade.

Beware. This is not worth a 4 star rating

Buyer beware. This is realistically a 2.5 - 3 star resort. Many areas of this resort was old and falling apart. Food was awful. The rooms are just ok. Our first room was absolutely filthy and we had to wait almost 3 hours AFTER initial check in to finally settle into our room and start to enjoy our vacation!

Great resort for the price

This resort is beautiful. It’s older but still in great shape. Felix, our Cheap Caribbean rep, was very helpful at getting us 2 excursions that took us to see the country side. The pool is very large and always sparkling clean. The beach was cleaned of seaweed and other debris as quickly as they possibly could get to it. Plenty to see and do in the area. The resort also offers tours through the local cab companies that are very safe and can take you right into the heart of the city of Puerto Plata. Don’t miss out on that or the cable car ride up to Christ the Redemer. The only thing I recommend is to pay the $3 a day for the room safe and put all your monies, jewelry, AND medicines in the safe when you leave. I had some medicine that didn’t have my name on it because it came out of a big box of medicine that was taken from the bathroom. Other than that, I would highly recommend this resort for anyone. There were kids there, but they were all well behaved. If you needed some quite time, the beach is the place to stay away from the kids.

Not Great but not bad...

For my 1st trip there w no kids - I can’t complain - I only needed to please myself. The beach and pool area was the BEST part of the resort. The dining options were ok at best, the Buffet being the better of them all. The Chefs at the “Mexican, Mediterranean and Brazillean” restaurants need to revisit the menus and types of foods they’re offering under those themes....left over baked chicken from the Lunch time buffet w melted mozzarella n a few stale nachos are NOT Mexican fare. The Mediterranean (Greek) is awful, everything drowned in Balmasic, couldn’t eat it. Let’s not even touch the “Brazilian Grill” - awful - got sick within 20minutes. However...cleanliness is BIG there. Everything spotless! Customer Service is right on - didn’t matter who you asked what question they were eager to get you an answer! The Bartenders - EXCELLENT! The Entertainment Staff - EXCELLENT!! The rooms were nice, the beds were so HARD we woke up w back n neck pains every morning!

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.
