Good Value

Overall our stay was very nice and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. My only issues were the beach and our stay over the weekend. The beaches are public so even if you are on the beach in your resort, people will try to talk to you and sell you things. Our group was on the beach for about an hour and we were approached 3 times. On the weekends, the residents stay at the resort. It was very crowded at the pool, difficult to get drinks and the buffet dining was at capacity during peak hours. I'd recommend staying here Monday through Friday.

I survived the Dominican Republic!

The DR has been getting so much bad press lately, we almost cancelled. I'm glad we didn't. It's a beautiful place with nice people I love the fact that you don't have all the people trying to peddle their wares like you do in other countries. Low pressure. Most of the guests at the resort spoke Spanish and came from South America to vacation, but this did not bother us. We could make our way fine. The staff spoke multiple languages and were very accommodating. The nightly shows were not very good, but we had fun attending them. Buffets and Japanese restaurant was good. We took tour of the waterfalls, which was amazing. The countryside is beautiful and not very commercialized, which we like. Hotel was easy to navigate. Staff was amazing, Food was good, and what you would expect at all inclusive. I had the best massage of my life on the beach. Good value for the money. Would definitely go back.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive relax-a-thon on the golden sands of Costa Dorado.

The Turkish bath, and hot stone massages at the stress-smashing spa.

Dropping off the kids at Lucy's Club (ages 4-12) - they draw & read while you play.

Golfing at the 18-hole Playa Dorada Beach & Golf Club that's five-minutes away.

 

What We'd Change

The guest rooms do not have Internet access, and there is a small fee for access in the hotel lobby. But who goes to Puerto Plata to work on the computer, anyway?

 

Why You Should Go

It's 20 minutes from the airport - your Dominican dream vacay will begin presto.

This place is all about water sports - kayaks, canoes, Hobie cats and more.

There's a casino for the riskier beach lovers.

For the land lovers, there's tennis, volleyball, a fitness room and more.
