General Description:
You’ll be spoilt for choice with bars and restaurants at the VH Atmosphere Adult-Only Resort, and it’s set across the picturesque grounds of the Playa Dorada Golf Course.

This place has relaxing retreat written all over it. It puts acres of manicured golf greens on your doorstep and is surrounded by a pretty lake. And it’s only a five-minute walk to a beach.

Sleek rooms are accessorised with four-poster beds and framed artwork. Plus, the in-room minibars are topped up with beer and soft drinks each day. Upgrade to the royal package and you’ll be treated to a daily turndown service and your own concierge.

This place has a lake-view infinity pool and a separate pool for royal package guests. Then there are four restaurants and four bars to hop between, as well as a beach club at the nearby seafront. The entertainment programme covers off sports and activities for every taste, and there’s a gym, too.

Golfers will be in their element as the hotel teeters on the edge of an 18-hole course*, designed by famous golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. You’ll get discounted green fees and can store your clubs for free.

The El Lago buffet restaurant takes care of breakfast, lunch and dinner. But you’ve also got two à la cartes* to choose from. There’s the Caribbean fusion eatery perched beside the last hole of the golf course, and Vista Grande – an Italian place that majors in pizzas and pastas.

Treat yourself to some pampering at Bagua Spa*. It’s based at Casa Colonial, one of the sister hotels in the resort, and covers off a long list of therapies, including massages, facials and body wraps.

You’ve got a few drinking spots* to choose from after dark. There’s a bar at the Vista Grande, and another at 19th Hole – the Caribbean restaurant. Plus, the barmen at El Lago shake up speciality cocktails. Entertainment is pretty low-key at this hotel – the house band often plays, or a DJ provides the soundtrack.

It’s not hard to find the infinity pool – its right at the centre of the hotel’s grounds, offering up impressive views of the lake and the tropical gardens. Royal package guests also have access to another small pool in a quiet corner of the property.

Rooms here come with Wi-Fi*, air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, cable TV, a minibar*, safe, iron and board, tea and coffee facilities, and a hairdryer. You can pick between a double room, superior double room, a royal junior suite, or a royal honeymoon suite with a whirlpool bath. The royal rooms have a host of extras like access to an exclusive pool and private beach area, bathrobes, slippers and more.

Items marked with * incur extra charges which are payable locally.
