This was my 8th visit to the Dominican Republic and first stay at the Iberostar. The room was dingy and there was quite a bit of mold in the bathroom. I was reluctant to bathe my children in the bathtub, but had no choice. The alarm clock and hair dryer did not work. Our balcony faced the back of the...

I first came to the hotel nine years ago and it has gone down hill. It is not a five star and in my opinion should be rated as a three. The hotel now looks tired with several tikes missing from the pool. The rooms are in need of an update and the full resort is in need of a...

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing with us your second experience at IBEROSTAR Costa Dorada. We are nothing less than disheartened to hear about all of these problems, we would never want a guest to leave the property with this feeling.

This is our third trip to DR, once in Punta Cana, and the second time in Puerto Plata. We chose Puerto Plata this year as we were able to get away only on the week of the Family Day, and typically sun trip prices are very high around the week. We don't want to spend much more than 1.5k per...

I read some of these reviews with surprise considering the value for money and superb standards on offer at this hotel. Some of the reviews from "carnival cruisers" are just not fair and in my humble opinion they should stick to their floating "palaces" - the hotel is great value for money. The beach is on the Atlantic coast and...
