    The El Dorado was an excellent choice for getting your money's worth. My room had an ocean view, the food was great, all you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bar is open from 11am to 11pm and all the drinks are free and they have a live entertainment show every night. The hotel has a section of the beach of there own. All this for $60.00 a night I really thought it was a great deal.

    Do not get too friendly with the beach seller's. They have people selling everything you can think of on the beach, but I did enjoy paying $3 a beer and having someone go get a ice cold beer for me when I was on the beach.

    Fabulous

    Nos sentimos muy bien atendidos, claro que volveremos a otras tranquilas vacaciones, esta muy bien ubicado,para los que quieran primero tranquilidad y segundo: playa, brisa y mar. Excelente, gracias

    Lo único que nos incomodo fue los ascensores, estan demasiados viejos, tienen que cambiarlos, también en los desayunos tienen que incluir queso, nunca pudimos comerlo, unicamente tenian queso salado y eso no nos gusta a los del interior. gracias. chao

    Fabulous

    el servicio es bueno, la gente es muy atenta, el menu es variado y su ubicacion es excelente, el precio en promociones es bueno para tener un buen momento de ocio relativamente economico, el bar atiende bien.

    reservar la comida, a veces a uno se le pasa, la comida a veces no era de la mejor calidad, la piscina solo esta disponible hasta las 6 de la tarde, deberia ser mas tarde, al menos hasta las 9 o 10 de la noche, algunas partes estructurales del hotel estan algo deterioradas como los acensores y algunos acabados de las fachadas, no deberia gastarse tanto vaso plastico y el bar y el restaurante deberian tener vasos mas grandes.

    El servicio ha sido excelente, la comida deliciosa tipo buffet. Las habitaciones muy limpias y buena ventilacion. Excelente atención y amabilidad por parte del staff del hotel. Recomiendo el hotel dorado plaza!

    En realidad no es culpa del hotel, sino que en esa zona hay muchos vendedores en la playa que son muy insistentes y eso puede ser molesto para algunos, pero del hotel no tengo queja.

    La comida estuvo mas o menos buena. Siempre hubo fruta y ensaladas, pero lamentablemente siempre iguales.

    Las instalaciones son feas. El baño tenía las paredes sucias, la rejilla del piso despegada, el lavamanos sucio, la ducha no cerraba bien, la unión de las baldosas del piso y paredes sucia. La nevera vieja y oxidada. La lampara super vieja y oxidada. Los bordes de la piscina verdes.
