    Amelia Walker champions the facilities and friendly service at IBEROSTAR Costa Dorada – an impressive venue for MICE, banquets, incentive programmes and all types of celebrations

    The Meeting, Incentive, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) industry is the fastest-growing sector of the international tourism market, catering to international conferences, business meetings, exhibitions and events. It is gradually capturing every big hotelier’s attention, as more and more businesses are now looking to convert meetings and conventions into more glamorous, informal and enjoyable events for delegates, clients and employees.

    Step forward IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts – a noteworthy expert in combining business with pleasure. I speak from experience, as I had the pleasure of enjoying the superb hosting by staff at the five-star IBEROSTAR Costa Dorada in the Dominican Republic. I was so impressed by the smiling, friendly and professional service that I made a mental note to inform you, the readers, so that if you or anyone that you know is looking for an international hotel chain be it now or in the future, IBEROSTAR would be on your radar and in your little black book.

    I am often told by assistants that great service is the number one factor when deciding on a hotel, with location second. Staff at Costa Dorada were always quick to respond to any query, and go out of their way to ensure that I was a happy guest. How could I not be surrounded by endless sandy beaches and an unlimited array of frozen margaritas?

    Their marque’s business properties guarantee rest, relaxation and fun times courtesy of the leisure facilities. Golf, gym, volleyball, aqua aerobics, spa, archery – the eclectic array of activities available is sure to stimulate one’s senses and encourage positive and productive vibes, courtesy of an early morning run on the beach before a long day of meetings, then kicking back and unwinding at the end sipping sundowners on the terrace, beach, or swim-up bar.

    IBEROSTAR’s Star Meeting rooms offer first-class facilities, with conference rooms equipped with audiovisual technology, smart boardrooms and vast multi-purpose spaces for any event or group (think theatre-style, banquet room, or classroom configuration). Plus, there are meeting rooms for private work dinners while the Select Star Meetings business hotels, which are located close to or within the hotel properties (and offer presentation and conference centres), are ideal for more large-scale functions. Multilingual group coordinators and caterers are available upon request.
