puerto plata - The wicker lobby of Hotel Iberostar Costa Dorada in Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic) was flown last night. The cause is not known yet.
All guests, including dozens of Dutch tourists, have been evacuated to the swimming pool for security, but the fire brigade quickly added to the fire.
Everyone returned to the room last night, said the spokesman for travel agency Thomas Cook, an important partner of the Iberostar hotel chain. No one was injured.
'Today's what the damage is and the mess is cleared. Then, hotel management and tour operators decide whether to continue the holiday in the Iberostar. It seems that this simply can. The rest of the accommodations and facilities are free of damage. '
