Quite bad
Not at all clean and no staff available upon our arrival. Would not recommend, despite the cheap rates. The area however is safe and quiet, but a bit «off» but ok

2/10 Poor

Don't stay there
The room on ground floor is noisy, dark, the bed is broken, very unpleasant to sleep on. On arrival we have been promised to move to the 1st floor on the day after, but it never happened. If you want fresh towels or fresh sheets or your room to be clean you have to ask for it, otherwise will never happen!!The shower is rusty, and the shower curtain is very dirty! I don't recommend to stay at Dorada studios.

2/10 Poor

Our booking was clearly indicated that there would be 2 double beds with a ocean view terrace. They first showed us a room with one double bed, which were didn't accept, they there was a room with no lights and finally we were given a room with 2 double beds with a 1x1m terrace which was 1m away from another tall building with no view. The beds were unconfortable and broken and the sheets were not clean.
