Just got back from the Celuisma Playa Dorada - the second time I have stayed there and had a great time again! It is definitely the hotel with the best stretch of beach in Playa Dorada and the staff are very polite and good-humoured. I agree with the previous review - Coco Loco (Antonio) was such a great 'host' - he really is the resident 'celeberity'! - all the guests love him and with good reason - he's a really good guy and a legendary character!
The hotel is really well laid-out - I've never heard of people staying in any derelict rooms - although they were renovating the place when I was there.. the ones I had as a standard were large 1 bedroom apartments (living room/bedroom and patio) with everything you would need on a beach holiday (one had a kitchenette too). Water is everywhere, so you need to buy a couple of bottles and fill them up from outside your room in your block... Everything was always clean - if anything, a little old, but I didn't mind that. Always had soap and towels replaced every day - never any problems/always clean. Remember that a small tip goes a long way and it is how things are done here - you'll save in other ways if tipping bothers you.
The food is great - a very good choice for breakfast - eggs, criossants, bread, plantain/sausages, fruit, butter/jam, juices/coffee on tap and more... and the buffet was great - meats, carbs, veg, salads, great desserts, grills and not once came down with a stomach bug, which wouldn't have been unusual.. And the Mexican restaurant is better than most I've been to in London.
Nightlife - celuisma is right next to the shopping/nigihtlife centre of Playa Dorada, so also very convenient in this way. Definitely the best location. Overall a very good stay - worth every penny!
