Beautiful location, great food, excellent service as soon as we stepped into the resort. Steps away from the beach if you book with a balcony view. Good for kids too. I would have given the resort EXCELLENT, EXCEPT the rooms need upgrading the box spring on one the beds was soo dirty with some holes and written on, it also made way too much noise when my son slept on it.

im didn’t lo The food was hideous... I hated the fact that you had must buffet and restaurants Mexican style... We are in the DR and you should be able to provide Dominican food and if given anything else should be American or European and NOT Mexican... I assure you if you go to Mexico there is no Rice, beans and meat as the Dominican flag or Mango with cheese and eggs. You need to stop that, the La Hacienda Restaurant needs to be change to a Dominican feature restaurant, you have great Seafood, great traditional food so plz provide it

My wife and I were here 19 years ago and we had fond memories so we thought we would try again. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED! While the presentation of the food was not as over the top as it was, it was still good and the quality did not disappoint. Entertainment was just as awesome as we remembered. We cannot say enough about how nice and accommodating the staff was (smile Edwin!) even when we were a little more "outgoing" than usual as a result of all the Mojitos consumed. We noted there were a number of European visitors 19 years ago and almost no North Americans. This time it seemed like there were a lot of US and Canadian citizens getting out of the polar vortex, but no matter where the guests originated, almost everyone had a great attitude and we were all happy to be in shorts and shirtsleeves in February. We highly recommend the Iberostar Costa Dorada!

Overall fine. Friendly, helpful staff. Buffet was enough variety; especially enjoyed many of the meat and fruit selections. Shows need tweaking, despite their enthusiasm.

Hello, the people are very helpful and courteous. Room was good but if you want an oceanview with your junior suite take the 2nd or 3rd floor. gym/spa was ok. they are in the process of renovations to the spa I imagine. soon to be a hot tube and sauna. I don't know. food was better this time around. love the Japonese restaurant. but why... why is the water at the beach always silty with debris, vegetation. at least the pool is wonderful. nice and cool. not heated like other tropical resorts. I jump in the pool to cool down in the hot weather. not heat up. Lastime I was here there were no stray cats. I like animals. I have dogs and cats. where I live has a ton of strays as same as anywhere but I don't need to see them in the resort. the cats impact on the natural wildlife is very bad. during the day they are actively hunting the native Anole lizards. I don't like that. the lizards are small and barely noticeable. i asked many of the other guests if they seen the lizards running up and down the trees. they all said no, there are lizards here, I didn't know. I found a lizaed in my room hiding in my dirty laundry pile. obviously seeking shelter from the marauding cats. get rid of the cats before they gang up on the Peacocks and Peahens. thanks Karl M.

Beach was beautiful. The pool is deep and there’s only a small side that is not. The part that is not deep has a volleyball net and everyone’s playing so the person who isn’t so tall and wants to be on the lower side can’t really enjoy the pool. They should move that net to the middle section of the pool. Lunch at the main buffet starts at 1pm and sometimes they open 15 minutes late. Since it starts at 1, there’s a whole bunch of people trying to get in and it gets super crowded and food runs out quickly and then you have to wait for them to replace the food. The employees at the buffet weren’t quick with serving drinks. There’s not enough employees and it was very annoying having to wait that I would have to bring my own drink from the room. The food was okay. Shows were okay at night. The employees need to be nicer to their guests but I don’t blame them for not being so nice. I’m sure they’re over worked since they don’t have much employees at the resort. Think they probably got layed off. Also, if they know you’re a tourist they’ll treat you a little nicer. If you look like one of their people they won’t even look at you.

Excellent staff!

I have been coming to Iberostar for 10 years! I love and enjoy may stay always. The staff is great: friendly, helpful, polite and respectful. It seems that you are taking care by angels. They greet you always with a smile, they are attentive and problem solve when you need anything. The food is average, it used to be much better few years ago. The best part is the fruits varieties- great selection of season tropical fruits and since is done constantly, it is always available. My whole family is has been here! The quality is great for the price! I recommend it!

Great family place

I traveled alone and I in this place I feel safe 24/7. I run in the beach by myself, I walk at late hour at night sit and look at the start and the beautiful pool and feel at ease and peaceful. The food is fine and always available. They have a lot to choose from- do reservation or just bufet style. The personal is excellent, attentive, smiley and helpful at all time. They also have shows every night and live music which is my favorite... I have been here several times and I definitely will come back!.
