Best Vacation Resort

I stayed at Iberostar from Sept 5-9 2017 and tuen again from Sept 9-16 due to trip cancellation because of Huricaine Irma. Let me tell you this Resort is awesome. I was a bit skeptical about tjis place but the pictures is exactly how the resort looks but in my opinion even better. This resort is very clean and the entire staff is professional and friendly. Im from NY so im definitely not use to being hreeted everyday and night by people but tjat exactly how staff is. They are very friendly and are some of the most happiest people yiu can tell they enjoy their job. CONCIERGE Manuel is one truly amaxing, funny, and informative guy. He greeted me and my partner with a smile walked us around answered all our question made sure on the day to day basis we was good. Make sure to ask for Manuel if u ever shall go. This resort is definitely for couples looking to relax, have drinks, enjoy the beach and pool without all the drama. Its a place for couples and friends to enjoy. The drinks could be a lot string but trust that a lil tip goes along way or even great conversation and ur drinks will get stronger. I think they need to stock the refrigerator more better then they do. I hope they also improve on more access to cable channels for people who understand English or give us the option to change it. Otherwise this hotel is dope food and drinks around the clock. Please visit its definitely 5stars i will be returning. The best part is the nightly live shows 9:30 very talented dancers and a big shoit out to Evan and Hullulu definitely very entertaining people

Disappointed with room

The restaurants were good however the food at the buffet could have been better. The rooms surrounding us were being renovated which left us with no pressure when flushing the toilet. This became very problematic which the front desk didn't do much to resolve the issue aside from sending someone out with a plunger. After calling multiple times you would think they would have just changed our room. The beach was full of seaweed, which I understand is out of their control, however every resort I've ever stayed in prior has maintence out there raking seaweed up in the morning.

our vacation

Did not care for Iberostar Costa Dorada that much. First room they gave us was nice but the AC did not work just blew warm air they gave us another room witch was also nice but the TV remote did not work the door on the mini bar was broken could not turn the fan off and the room clock did not work. The Ice maker on our floor did not work eather had to go to the next building for Ice..Good thing we stayed gone most of the time we realy only used the room to sleep anyway. The Grounds were very nice and the staff was also very nice . the pool and beach very well kept and very clean. Food so so kind of limited .

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.
