PS I have also been to the complex next door - the Occidental Allegro..
The room was disgusting, on the first door our patio door fell apart and we couldn't secure it....it only took the maintenance guys 4 days to come and fix it! The air conditioning made a right racket and eventually stopped working, we had a leaking toilet which the maintenance guys SO CALLED fixed but to our horror 2 nights before we left to come home...the room was 4 inches deep in water!!!! We had wet clothes, shoes, suitcases and a floating lilo!! The room stuck of toilet water....we ended up having to pack our wet cases up and moving to another room..what a nightmare time it was...I just wanted to come home at this point...We'd had enough! Although the food was better the service was appalling..I would not step foot in that place again.....
This place is the pits.from A TripAdvisor Member
this room reminded me of an old broken down bedsit that hadn't seen a duster in weeks.The room was dark, smelt stale, cobwebs on the wall, afamily of ants marching on the walls all over the bed clothes everywhere. Our first night was hell, the sheets wer'e torn and had brown stains on them, it was hot but we could'nt ge the windows to open, we couldn't sit out on the balcony .....because their wasn't one!
The food in the resort was disgustng it reminded me somewhat of school dinners. The only posetive thing i can say about this hotel was the staff, they wer'e very friendly and polite. We didn't take any of the organised trips, but we explored on our own. We met some lovely dominicans on the beach, they took us to their home and made us some real dominican food (very tasty). We spent the rest of the 14 days hanging out with this family hardly spending time in the hotel which was good.On the whole, enjoyed my holiday with the locals......but I'd say to anyone who have already booked to go to this hotel....either cancel.....or be prepared for the worst hotel ever!
special holiday of a lifetimefrom A TripAdvisor Member
We and our two daughters had a fabulous time- the hotel caters for all ages and tastes. The cleanliness of the rooms, the food and entertainment are superb.
A special thanks to the fun team who never found it too much trouble to talk and get involved with everything that was going on without being intrusive. We must just mention one or two in particular, shaggy, speedy and of course chayanne.
The girls insist we add "Mr Lover Lover man" (they would die for him).
We would recommmend Villas Doradas to anyone.
Regards Stuart and Pam

Top Local Tips for Puerto Plata
Puerto Plata on your own, by taxi or guagua (public bus) If you want to visit Puerto Plata on your own, don't hesitate to hire the service of the tour guides (guys with yellow shirts) that you will meet close to Parque Central. They don't charge, but a small tip at the end of the tour is really appreciated. The guide will stay with you and show you whatever you want to see. He will also make sure that you have a safe visit and even see that you get back on a guagua or a taxi for your return trip.
Going into town We tried to go into town one day but left after less than an hour due to being harassed non stop and the very dirty streets, garbage and extreme poverty. We also paid quite a bit for a taxi to take us in and he stopped at some gift shops that he obviously gets a tip for bringing people. They were crappy little places with nothing really to offer. If you like taking in the real life of the town you may have some problems. We gave up and stayed at the resort and just enjoyed the beach and pools.
BRING CASH OR USE CREDIT CARDS - DON'T USE ATM'S Our bank charged us $6.49 US each time we used the ATM machine in the Dominican Republic so make sure you check with your bank first about any service fees they may impose. And check with your travel agent or tour guide about arrival and departure fees. We were told we would need $10 US to enter the country and then $20 US to depart, but we didn't need either as they were included in our trip cost.
