We got back this morning from our 3 star “wild card” holiday, having paid $229 + $270 tax pp. Upon arrival at the airport we were assigned to the Hotetur Dorada Club in the Playa Dorada Complex. Our clean and very quiet second floor suite (large bedroom, huge living room with hide-a-bed couch & dining area, bathroom and furnished balcony) with ocean view was a nice treat. Beach area was lovely. Food was acceptable…always something one could eat. Great value for our dollars. Will write a more complete review later.
3 star wild card vacationers were assigned either the Hotetur Dorada Club or Camino del Sol in Cabarete. 4 star assignments were at Blue Bay Getaway and Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort & Spa.
GTD got us to the DR & back in a timely fashion. Only drawback was having a 3 AM flight home which made for a very looooooooooooooong last day. Thankfully we had access to a courtesy room after the official noon checkout.
