Iberostar Costa Dorada seen from above.

There’s more to Puerto Plata than just stunning beaches. Did you know it is also home to a colonial city and 16th-century fort built to defend its inhabitants from Caribbean buccaneers?

At Iberostar Costa Dorada, you’ll see why the pirates had their sights on this incredible part of the world. Designed with families in mind, the hotel enjoys a lush natural setting that sits directly on an award-winning beach.  Only 10 minutes away from the city center. Enjoy the hotel’s wide array of sports facilities, including three outdoor pools, a fitness room, tennis courts and archery targets. 

While it’s nice to know what the rooms look like, static interior footage and videos don’t do the hotel much justice in general.

A key difference between resort and hotel is that resorts are a great vacation destination for families, while many hotels are more suited to individuals. Likewise, guests often stay longer in resorts, while hotels are used more for overnight stays. Finally, remember that there is a hotel in a resort, but a resort is never located in a hotel.
