We loved it! Don't go if you are expecting a 5 star resort, because this is not it. But the food was good and the drinks were plentiful. Bring some extra ones and you'll have great service. Make sure to make reservations the morning before for dinner. If you don't like it, you can always go to the buffet. Don't miss the flaming coffee drinks with 151 in the corner of the beach party on Friday!!!!!!
“Buena, Bonita y Barrata!”
I will definitely be candid about the Celuisma Experience. First off this resort is an excellent 3 star hotel. Now if you are looking for a five star experience with room service, white sandy beaches, and guys that come to you with drinks while youre on the beach you have the wrong place. Like I said this is an excellent 3 star hotel for people on a budget that want a wonderful, bug free, clean experience. The rooms were beautiful and clean. Now, the food is good, not the greatest, but at the Yact buffet you can always find some tasty food. The beach has tan sand and fairly clear water- its not the prettiest beach in my opinion because Im spoiled by the white sands and clear aqua-blue water of the Bahamas, but it is definitely nice and clean. The staff is very friendly and they will hook you up if you tip well (100-200 pesos) This hotel is in a compound with all the other hotels you have probably considered- Viva Wyndham, blue bay, Barcelo, Colonial, etc. These hotels are on the Playa Dorada. Now, some annoying attributes about this hotel. All inclusive only refers to the food, tennis, gym and maybe 2 or 3 other things. I say this because even though they have a list of all inclusive activities such as bicycles, the bikes are so torn up and the tires are all mangled so you cant ride them anyway. So although its included, the stuff isnt always available. Anyway, there is such a relaxing atmosphere. We had a blast and will definitely go back next summer. See you there!
“This is the place to Stay and Enjoy”
I stayed at the CELUISMA Playa Dorada on June 8th and was tempted to write this review to motivate all those clients that are blown off by all those bad reviews they see about this hotel on Trip Advisor and other pages. The hotel is Excelent !!!.. It was my third time there and I noticed MANY improvements. The remodeled rooms are great. I had a spacious balcony, fridge, TV, Hair dryer and a fab air c air conditioning system (very important in such a hot country)!!! The staff was great and very helpful. The food was excellent, Four a la carte restaurants and one main buffet for such a cheap price What a budget We had something different to eat every day. I would definitely come back on September, but this time with company.
“Great Place for a Great Price!!!!”
Our stay here was fantastic! The beach was gorgeous, food was good and the staff was awesome. They did everything to make your stay there wonderful. The newly renovated rooms were nice as well. You will not find anywhere else better for the price. Yes, its not a five star resort but your not paying for a five star resort so don't expect that. If your looking for a nice get away with an amazing beach, good food, nice rooms and a great staff at a very affordable price this resort maybe hard to beat. Will definitely be returning here!

“A true hidden gem”
I vowed never to return to Puerto Plata after having been to Punta Cana....but this time it was sooo different. I was meeting dominican friend's hence, the reason I ended up in PP. I loved my stay at the Celuisma PP. My hotel room was a junior suite to die for. The food was plenty for all. The animation fellas were all so great. I was a little disappointed in not having more activities at the beach though. That could use to work but if you are looking for a place to rest and relax this is the place. The guest services and front desk fellas were awesome with my stay (loved it so much that I extended it for a few more days). Yeha!! The nightlife, Coco Bongo hmmm, fun but not my cup of tea. Hemmingway's and Broadway worth going for some live entertainment and pub type setting.
“Didnt want to leave!!!”
The trip was amazing , hotel was great for what we paid for. Everyone on the resort was very friendly kept us entertained. Food was ok and what was expected for buffet style. Very nice section of beach and very relaxed atmosphere. Cant wait to go back
“Excellent choice for a good price”
Excellent room and excellent service. The experience was fun and entertaining. Gym and Spa were also excellent. Loved the swimming pool and the beach area. The game room had many options. Food and drinks were always available.
“Good for the price”
Room quality not impressive, but service good.
