This is the second time in two years. We returned to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had a mini-suite on the beach front. Room was clean and service excellent. We asked for additional bottled water daily and had no problem getting them. Restaurant (buffet) was also excellent with seafood every other day (at least). It is a good sign when...

Great variety of daytime activities/games. Lovely orchid garden. Flamingos, peacocks and turtles added an appreciated tropical touch.

This was our 4th visit to the DR we've stayed previously 3 times at Ocean Blue in Punta Cana but after the beach deteriorated there we thought we would try another resort. First of all the airport was a smoother transition. $10 in the country and $20 out. Transfer roughly 20 mins. Rooms ) First impressions were good, check in...

Was my second trip to the Costa Dorada. Just as enjoyable as my stay in 2015. The combination of (close) proximity to the airport, good food, great staff and a nice beach/pool combo make it hard to resist. The entertainment team works hard to get you involved and provide a few laughs. Would be hard to find a better spot...
