The comfort and cleanliness of the rooms was superb! As with any decent hotel, a safe was available for valuables. We found the food to be extremely good. I've read other reports on this web site which aren't as complimentary, but we really were impressed with the standard and variety. Some of the best food we've had abroad - the cuisine could not be knocked! The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The hotel generally had a very relaxed and tranquil atmosphere. Set amidst an 18 hole golf course, the landscape was beautifully sculpted and very lush. The beach (complete with the hotel's beach bar) was but a 2-3 minute walk away. The usual hustlers, but a simple "no" or shake of the head and we weren't bothered. A good variety of watersports were availble to all - jet ski, banana boat, sailing etc. On the Playa Dorada resort itself, three casinos made for excellent entertainment a couple of evenings, but the hotel always had something planned for the evenings entertainment. The shopping arcade and excellent heath centre were but a stones through away and extremely convenient!

The best holiday we've had in the last 2 years. The resort had everything we needed. In terms of activities, there is no shortage - white water rafting, the 'cat' and snorkelling day out, quad biking - the list really was endless. We ventured out on the cat one day - a gorgeous day, amazing snorkelling, a great spread for lunch and endless supply of drink (we recommed the 151 Rum - whoever said DR alcohol had no taste!?!) Quad biking was another of our adventures - great fun, but very dusty (take some glasses!) We would recommend this holiday to families and couples alike. Would definitely go back to this resort!

the victoria resort was spot on.
we could not fault the place, it is set in some of the most beautiful surroundings in the resort with the beach a short walk away.
buffet style restaraunt was a bit basic but the hotel had 3 other places to choose from which more than made up for it.
the staff are amongst some of the friendliest and loudest at times i have come across, we found them always willing to help.
