Awesome vacationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Fun club made itfrom doddsy35
and need refurbishing,50% are clean and well maintained so if yours
isnt ask to be moved.
now if you want a laugh good company good buffett food (for a 3 star)and to be entertained by getting involved this is the place we met people from USA,England,France,Canada,Germany,Denmark and Mexico the children were entertained 5 times a day
the Fun team and the staff make the difference
Shaggy,Winston,Scooby,orlando and Hiro are class i now say crappy
crappy Oh Be jesus and init all the time they take the mick in a nice
way if they spent money on the rooms this would be a reccomend
everytime the question is u sleep in the room for 8 hours so on that
basis the other 16 hrs ( pool bar entertainment and food ) 9 out of 10
t even waste your time!from A TripAdvisor Member

Especially after reading some of the comments written by miserable cold people who really must not know how to enjoy life. I must admit, we generally avoided the hotel entertainment -but we would have done this no matter what was on offer- as we know how to entertain ourselves.
This is in no way a reflectioin on the entertainment staff who look like they are at least enjoying themselves. We have never eaten so much in all our lives, with a delicious spread, offering a mix of styles and always with a dominican flavor (after all, when in rome...!) Our one critisim was by the time we booked ourselves into the ala carte restrant at the end of the week, we had eaten so much that we couldnt fit another meal in! All the staff we encountered were friendly and keen. Our hotel apartment was fully equipt (apart from no fridge, but with all inclusive, what do you want that for?) always cleaned to a high standard by a lovely, friendly maid. Yeah the pool is small, but why splash about there when the warmed atlantic sea is just a few minutes stroll along a sandy path, opening onto the hotels' bar on the beach, where you can sip cocktails while reclining onto the golden soft sand or book out the free snorkling gear and go fishy spoting. Make of it what you want, but if you want 5* dont go here.
Never Again..from A TripAdvisor Member
This place is a dumbfrom newnanna
NOT SO! Our travel agent told us they had changed their name and were now Hotetur Doradas Club Resort. NOT SO! They have now 3 Hoteturs and you better make sure what one your agent is selling you, because this Hotetur Doras Club Resort is a dumb and should be closed.
After being up all night, arriving at 10 AM, discovering we were not even going were we thought we were horrified to discover ourselves in the lobby of this Hotetur Doradas Club Resort, an obvious dumb before we had even seen around.
Then we were told check in time wasn't till 3 PM. This was after being up all night and arriving tired, hungry and irritated. And sick
We checked in, and went to the Dining Room while waiting for our 3 PM check in time. . What a laugh. I slopped the big spoon around in several pots of creamy stuff, trying to decide what it was I was eating. Revolting. Try another pot. Same thing, couldn't figure out what it was.
We decide the dining room feels like a Mission. What have we got ourselves into? And what the heck had our regular travel agent of many years done to us?
I was quite ill, so they decide to book us into the "best room in the house, THE LOFT". Anybody would love to have the loft they say. Well the loft is up under the rafter, with deep slopes in the roof line, so there is a window but the roofline covers it totally. We didn't come to the Dominican to live in a room with no light. The bathroom had bare light bulb hanging from the ceiling. We're so exhausted.
We decide to contact the service agent and either move hotels or go home back to Toronto. Never, ever would we have stayed at this Resort.
The more we looked around the more disgusted we were. Being experienced and frequent visitors to the Dominican and Puerto Plata we felt sorry for the people who didn't know they were being ripped off.
In fact the staff we had dealt with so far were ignorant, surly and we just wanted the heck out.
The next day we got moved to the Villas Doradas our original and intended holiday spot. So we stayed for the week.
Very funny vacationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The place was well animated by scoobie doo, shaggy, spaghetti, danny boy.... etc... The bar tenders are so friendly, smiley and the service is very very fastly. I will never forget Ricardo, Domingo, Marcelino and specialy Oswaldo. This guy was so nice with us. I hope he will be there for our next vacation at your place. Would you please say "Hi" to Oswaldo and Domingo for me.
All the team should stay there, they are so nice.
The buffet was very good too. Specialy on Christmas eve and New year eve. Wow ! Shrimps, scampies, smoked salmon, caviar, good cheeses, etc.... Excellent, very excellent.
Thanks to every body for the nice vacation we had.
Sorry for my english writing.

Top Local Tips for Puerto Plata
transport use a bus! its good experience. say no thanks to taxi drivers and keep walkin or if you want a taxi negotiate a price first and if theyr good you can always tip them. ALWAYS get a return journey. Dont hire a car its cheap but just dont! Always go to dorado club its mint! The night life is very good. I loved it, i was with 2 girlfriends all of which we are single so we had the time of our lives. just take note, if a cute dominican asks you to dance (it happened all the time) heaven! its safe to say yes, if he asks you to go for a walk for 10mins say no, its not just a walk he wants to go for. stay with your friends girls.
Visiting Sosua Deal the taxi, Deal the price of your souvenirs (1/3 of what they are asking) and be carrefull as they do speak french.
KIDS AND DISABILITYS. DONT TAKE KIDS HERE- THEY WILL GET BORED WHEELCHAIR USERS ONLY GO IF YOU ARE WILLING TO ONLY EAT AT THE BEACH BEFORE 6 PM AS THERE IS NO ACCESS UP THE STAIRS TO THE RESTURANT.(AND THEY WON'T LET YOUR FAMILY BRING FOOD DOWN TO YOU AS 'YOU CAN'T TAKE FOOD FROM THE RESTURANT')
