Just returned from a trip two weeks (from 8 to 22 November) at Iberostar Costa Dorada. When booking with Sunwing, we asked to be housed in Block No. 1 to be closer to the sea and the restaurant for dinner. We asked the second floor and a king. We stressed that we be celebrating a birthday. We got everything we asked and more a bottle of Spanish champagne waiting in our room in a bucket full of ice.

The site is beautiful, the vegetation is lush. The food buffet is excellent, three a la carte restaurants are average. The beach is nice except a few places where there are algae or coral. By cons you can walk about 30 minutes on the right side of the beach and 15 minutes from the left side of the beach when you are facing the sea You can swim in the sea in several places there is no d algae or coral. There are about 30 palapas available to the sea and even around the pool. The staff is friendly and usually smiling.

The only negative was with Sunwing which was to take a direct flight to Puerto Plata. About 1 month before departure we were paired with the flight to Punta Cana. We had to leave at 8:00 AM in Montreal and four hours later arrive at the destination. Instead, we left at 9:00 AM and we arrived at 4:20, hours of the Dominican Republic. They have an hour more than us. We had to get off the plane about 45 minutes and re-embark for the rest of the trip. They served us a lunch at 10:45 (not famous) and we have not had another meal later even with the time we arrived. We do not travel again with this carrier in the future. They are objects of a multitude of complaints to consumer protection or the internet and we believe they are mostly based. PS: If you have a light sleep we suggest you bring ear plugs. The doors that close were heavy and very noisy when they are closed especially when people come in the wee hours of the morning and do not hold. Then they slam strong and we wake up at night.
