The Hotel Hesperia Playa Dorada is well set up for couples and families, with a great pool scene and a location that’s close to the beach and marina.
When it comes to location, the Hotel Hesperia Playa Dorada is hard to beat. There’s a sandy beach 2 minutes’ walk away and the shops and yachts at Rubicon marina take just over 5 minutes to reach on foot. You can also walk along the prom to the town centre – it’ll take about 10 minutes. At the hotel itself, the pool scene definitely deserves a mention. There are two big pools – one’s criss-crossed by little bridges, while the other’s next to a pair of children’s pools. There’s also an al fresco bar serving salads, sandwiches and snacks. Inside, there’s a buffet restaurant with local and international dishes, and a wellness centre with a pool, hot tub and sauna. As for keeping busy, there’s a list of activities that includes archery and boules, a 9-hole pitch and putt course, and a gym. After dark, meanwhile, you’ve got live entertainment and a nightclub.

This is a fabulous hotel in an amazing location , next to the beach . We had a family room which I was really pleased with as both kids had a single bed each , in other hotels it's a sofa bed . The kids also had a TV up on the wall next to their beds . The rooms were cleaned every day without fail . The air conditioning done the job and kept us nice & cool . We asked on second day to upgrade to deluxe but was refused as was too busy , I'm so glad we didn't as couldn't see what all the fuss was about. I got speaking to a few people who asked for their money back after paying for deluxe . We ate out every evening and really enjoyed this . We preferred the pool at the back of the hotel as this was much quieter and you could also get beds & umbrellas . Would I return to this hotel most definitely . More

A great time had by all
We were a family group of 3 generations and this hotel suited us all except for the fact that the indoor pool necessary for one of our group was not available at this time. The location was perfect with a great beach within easy walking distance. The rooms were pleasant although we would have appreciated a fridge and wifi in our room. The wifi in the foyer was unreliable.Our room was close to the evening entertainment area so it was quite noisy at timesiThe buffet breakfast was excellent. A supermarket and restaurants were nearby.More

An amazing holiday experience
Amazing experience! My first holiday with my boyfriend and we have already decided to stay again next year, for two weeks instead of 10 nights as we loved it so much! (We only landed at 2.45am this morning). Perfect for families and couples of any age, food is great, hotel is clean, staff are friendly and helpful and entertainment is always varied. Excellent location too, just minutes walk away from lots of shops, restaurants, bars and boutiques and on the opposite direction, the beautiful Marina. 5 stars from me! More

We visited the last week of April, the hotel was very clean and we had a view of the second pool at the back of the hotel from our balcony. We spent most our time at the pool nearest our room which was quieter and there were amble sunbeds and a bar, most the time we had the pool to ourselves with just a couple of other sunbathers. The nearby beach was lovely only a 2 minute walk, very pretty with various bars/cafes/restaurants along the promenade. The walk to the harbours at either end of Playa Blanca along the promenade was lovely. The food was very enjoyable and despite being vegetarians we found plenty to eat. The evening entertainment was very good (in particular the Spanish Dancing and Acrobats). The cocktails were fabulous - and we sampled quite a few! We were made to feel very welcome and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this hotel and we are looking forward to visiting again.More

Stayed at this hotel for a week in July for a couples holiday. The hotel looks very grand and is ideally situated- a couple of minutes from the beach and near a variety of restaurants. We stayed standard bed and breakfast, our room was beautiful and we were treated extremely well. Everything we needed was provided for us. (If you are debating over whether to fork out hundreds more for deluxe or not - go for standard as I was pleasantly surprised with how amazing my stay was). The variety at breakfast was enormous, with both hot and cold food being served. The hotel made the extra effort to bring me a lovely cake on my birthday! Friendly staff, beautiful environment, honestly couldn't fault this hotel! Definitely recommend. More
