I like the hotel, y went alone and i was getting a king size bed instead i got two twin bed, so have that in mind, to me i did not care. Great beach, clean water, some of the staff are a bit picky, but hey nothing in this live is perfect. I can said i can go several time to this hotel, food was good, the beach and the pool. i did like my stay :) overall
"Nice hotel , very close to beach . Friendly people"
Someone says , " first impression is the last Impression". It proved in this hotel. Since beginning , whole staff service was good. Basic thing is food - and we got good choice of different food. All arrangements was excellent . I went with my friends but I would love to recommend my family and friends for this hotel. Thank you very much for making my trip excellent.
I stayed at Iberostar Costa Dorada For the 3rd time and that says a lot of the hotel. Food Here is Pretty Good especially at Dinner we were 5 adults 2 kids and 2 infants we reserved for the international A la Carte Restaurant and the Brazilian, they Are Both AMAZING My only Complain is that they should have Lobsters In the International A la Carte Restaurant because that's the Seafood.
We had a great time and the staff were amazing: Francis, Ruth, Carmen to just name some of them! Great food, snack bar.
Bar open until midnigjt, shows every days. Beach is small but very confi and beautiful! The buffet area is just close to the beach offering you a great view to the ocean while you enjoy your breakfast, lunch o dinner.
The only inconveniente: you can not doing laundry.
We reserved the Royal Suites for our second day in teh Puerto Plata area. The first day we stayed at Casa Colonial and it was awsome! At Lifestyles from the begining even checking in was painful, there were a lot of people we had to wait to check in and then wait for the room to be ready. Once we got to the room we were very dissapointed it was not what is advertised in the pictures on the web site, in fact it was old, not kept up to date.
Another issue is trying to make reservations to have diner in one of the gourmet restaurants. this should not be a hassle but here it is. We had a VIP bracelet and we stayed for one night and because of this I have called well in advance to let them know I was concerned that we may not be able to get a reservation and was tyold they will accomodate, when I arrived it was very dissapointing and got no help what so ever; in fact the only restaurants they told us had opening were the mexican, dominican, chinese and the buffet restaurants. We chose the chinese restaurant and was a big mistake because the food was awful, we did not eat all our food and joinned other couples that lefty tgis restaurant and went to the buffet.
There seemes to be VIP areas that are nice and sounds like the villas and presidential suites may be in better shape. I may give this place another shot if I were to stay at one of these rooms and try one of the gourmet restaurants hoping we have a better experience next time
