As a solo traveller this was the wrong choice. It’s fine for families and couples but not for solo travellers. I did enjoy the Japanese restaurant. The regular dining was a disappointment, good variety but not great. I don’t know what kind of flour they use but all the carbs were poor. Salads were good. I’d go somewhere else if I ever came back.

Hotel's Favourite
This is my third time visiting Iberostar Costa Dorada and it never disappoints. Service is like no other in every restaurant and corner of the place. My husband and I got married here 9 years ago and our wedding planners, Yolanda and Deyadira were still there making sure our stay was perfect. They took care of everything for us! The food in every restaurant is amazing, which isn’t always the case at al-inclusive a hotels. The room and hotel surroundings were always clean! Can’t wait to go back!

I want to be fair in this review. Yes, some of the staff was very nice/kind (Willy from concierge-related services comes to mind), but overall, the treatment that I received at this resort was disturbing and unacceptable. Mind you, I am Black American, so my experience may not be the same as others. I was often served last - after all of the white people and the locals. I was constantly told to speak Spanish - although I don't speak Spanish because I'm American and not Latino.. and no matter how often I explained this to everyone - no one believed me. Also, I was told that bars and restaurants were close only to have locals or other guest be greeted with open arms. This all made for an extremely uncomfortable experience where I felt like a second class citizen. If I was treated this way in the United States, I would absolutely pursue filing a discrimination complaint against the facility. No question. Furthermore, outside of the race issues, the resort is old/dated.. the food was below average (although the breakfast buffet was good and the hibachi restaurant was fine). The beach is filled with people trying to sell you things.. and the entertainment was... well.. not entertaining. On the positive side, the COVID restrictions were very solid. Save your money and select another option.

We are repeat customers who were anxious to return to our holiday home. Nothing fell short of our expectations. The staff pulled together to ensure that the reopening of this resort lived up to the earned reputation. COVID protocols and cleaning were followed which offered peace of mind. It was convenient to be offered PCR testing done at the resort for our return to Canada.

We were at the resort from Nov 13th to 20th with a group of 24 and we had a fantastic time . The room I had was newly renovated and it looked great. The food was very good and the service we received from the staff was FANTASTIC ! Domingo in the breakfast buffet and Elvis at the pool bar more then took care of us. We had 12 kids between the ages of 18 and 21 and the activity staff of Road Runner and Pepsi kept them very busy. The kids entered ever contest they could and were a part of every show at night. Roadrunner and Pepsi made their stay outstanding. The beach was nice and there was a little seaweed in the morning but the staff cleaned it up everyday. The water was warm with a sandy bottom. We will be definitely be going back!! Well Done Costa Dorada !!
