Enjoy quiet days stretched across a private expanse of white sand beach, seek relief from the warm Caribbean sun within the cool waters of the lake-style swimming pools and improve your swing on one of two lighted tennis courts. Ride kayaks, join aerobics, or participate in archery and shooting tournaments. Keep fit by taking advantage of the fully equipped gym and be pampered at the modern spa where you can enjoy treatments like massages and facials. Use of the sauna, steam room, and other spa facilities are included at no extra charge.

The Iberostar Costa Dorada offers three a la carte restaurants featuring Brazilian, Mexican and international cuisine (note: one guaranteed a la carte dinner per week).

    Wonderful hotel. I will be back.

    I am just amazed by this hotel, the service is so excellent in all departments and in all of the restaurants as well. I must congratulate Hulu Hulu and his amazing animation team. Bravo. Your teams energy is contagious, shows and after dinner dancing so appreciated! Room, cleanliness A+. Public spaces impeccable. Beach just lovely. Concierge, Porter staff and reception staff so friendly too. Bravo Iberostar. We will be back.

    My fave place ❤️

    I come to this hotel every year, sometimes 2 times a year, it honestly is so amazing. The flights to Puerto Plata have stopped from England now so because we like it so much, we flew to Punta Cana and got a private transfer to this hotel ( 5 hour journey in a car ) I cannot even begin to explain how amazing the staff are here. As returning guests, we get to see all the staff whether they be new or old, we always get the best welcome and we are remembered by many of them. The star friends are some of the nicest and funniest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. ( WiFi, Maria, Calizan, Bonny Bonny, Road Runner, Darling, Pepsi and Hulu Hula: the ents manager ) they always take time to come over and speak to us, take us places so we are not alone outside the hotel and always ensure we are happy :) The dancers are brilliant at what they do, the shows are well put together and even the new dancers that haven’t been here for long still make the show. The food & bar service is always 10/10, there is nothing that any of them wouldn’t do for you. Especially Enrique on the show bar, he is lovely. The maid service is also perfect, the rooms are done to perfection every day, beds made, clean and the mini bar restocked with water, coke, Diet Coke, Fanta Sprite & beer. The beach is always clean as there are people who go and clean it and if there is any seaweed they do the best the can to ensure it is moved ( but obviously it cannot be helped that seaweed is coming on to the beach ) Overall this hotel really is 10/10 and there is nowhere else I would want to go on holiday. I really enjoy it & I know everyone who is here does too. I wish the flights from England would come back so that all the people who love coming here like me can do a full journey straight to Puerto Plata instead of having to go via different places.

    Another awesome trip !!

    If it wasnt for the staff we might not keep going back. The staff make this resort and are better than any other resort we have ever been to !! Wifi, Maria, Roadrunner, Darling, Bunny, Mechy, and Calizan, and Chocolate (yoga and steps instructor) make the trip truly enjoyable. They really care if you have fun, and try to get you up to do the activities... There is so much to do on the resort you dont have to leave. The Dancers at night are great as well, and a special mention goes out to Willy, Franklin, Andy, Julio, and the new guy who is always smiling : ) !!! The girls are just as awesome ! As for the resort, they are starting to update it, starting with the rooms. The rooms are adequate, and the washrooms are a bit small and too tight for 2 people to get ready in. Beds are comfy, and balconies are nice to just relax. Restaurants are good, food is pretty decent, my favorite is the Mediterranean... Buffet food is good, and I have heard several people say the food is better then other resorts in the area they have been to. Selection is decent but not as much as on a Large higher end resort. Pool needs updating, and the beach has seeweed which they are trying to keep clean but its a constant battle for them... the beach further to the right past the orange market is better for swimming. The resort is fun, the staff is great, the food and rooms are good. Overall I think its the best value in the area.
