Honest Review of Blue Bay Villa

The people at Blue Bay were very friendly and overall the resorts was very clean and well kept up by the staff. Issues of concern for the price that was paid are as follows from our previous experiences with Cheap Caribbean: 1. the bar in the room was poorly stocked 2 beers and 2 soda plus a restocking fee of $10.00 per day 2. Buffet food never changed for breakfast or lunch. Specialty restaurants only good food was the Asians. Steak dinner and seafood dinner were below standards for what we paid for. 3 Beach too far of a walk from cabin for a person with a disability 4 On first day of arrival went to room after all day flying for a cold drink. Refrigerator not working drinks warm. Had to call to have refrigerator replaced. Poor room preparation. 5. Could never get clean towels because they were always out of them and had to keep dirty towels because attendant did not have towel cards. very disappointing. I would NOT recommend this resort to anyone until they resolve problems listed above.

Best Vacation Bargain

If you are looking for singles or to meet your perfect mate, this is not the place. Most of the guests were couples of varying ages. If you are looking for a wonderful time, plenty of activities and entertainment, great food, drinks and lots of fun, this is the IT! I went with a friend and had the best vacation of my life. The individual hotel units were clean enough. This is not a 5 star hotel but for the money, and if you don't expect all the luxuries of an upscale place, you will be very happy and treated extremely well. It is very safe and i would travel to this destination again by myself.

Stay away!!!!

From beginning to accelerated end, this place was a disaster!! Arrived at 1:15 PM Friday after being awake and traveling 13+ hours. We were told our room was not ready yet, but would be by check-in time at 3. We wandered around and waited. Went to the front desk at 3 and were told our room was still being cleaned and would be ready in "a few minutes". Many more trips to the front desk... many more "a few more minutes".... by 4:30 we were in our room waiting for our luggage (which arrived 30 minutes later). Stains on the ceiling, the remote control didn't work, and the mini fridge was warm. It never did get cold. DISGUSTING!!! We ate and went to bed rather early. The phone in the room rang every hour - one ring with a dial tone on the other end. After the 2nd time, we unplugged the phone so we could sleep. Next morning, plugged the phone back in - same thing. Called the front desk and were told they didn't know why, but would look into it. That afternoon, same thing. Called the desk, and were told again, they would look into it. That evening, more calls with no one on the other end. Called the front desk AGAIN, they said they would send someone to the room. We waited, the phone rang again (no one there), so we unplugged the phone and walked it to the main lobby and deposited it on the Guest service managers desk. This place might be ok if you are young and not discerning... but if you have any class at all - stay away!

What's to Love

The food here is simply superb. Award-winning chefs create innovative seafood and Asian menus so spectacular that every meal is better than the last and impossible to top.

 

What We'd Change

All rooms have a mini bar, but it's stocked only once on the Deluxe plan. Upgrade to Silver Deluxe, and it gets restocked every day.

Hotel Description

BlueBay Villas Doradas: Puerto Plata Pampering, Gourmet Dining

Set your watch to "island time" and let the hours melt away on the sun-drenched shores of Puerto Plata. Atop the sugary sands of the Dominican Republic sits the stunning, adults-only, all inclusive BlueBay Villas Doradas where you can play 24 hours of the day away on the shimmering waters of the Caribbean and the emerald fairways of Blue Bay's next-door neighbor, Playa Dorada Golf Course, an 18-hole, par-72 course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr.

Winner of the Thomas Cook Award for Excellence, the oceanfront Blue Bay Villas Doradas really knows how to pamper. Let the lapping sapphire waves carry your cares away as you laze under thatched beach umbrellas, or slip into one of the resort's three glittering swimming pools and order your favorite cocktail from the swim-up bar, Merengue.

When it comes time to dine, your taste buds won't be disappointed with exquisite menus at four delicious on-site restaurants, including El Jardin de Jade, serving up Asian fusion cuisine, and El Pescador, serving local catches straight from the surf to your seat. After you've cleaned your plate, get the party started at Oxygen Bar and welcome the wee-hours from the 24-hour Beach Club, where you can play, drink and snack all night.

Relax in the sauna before getting a couple's massage and finish with a dip in the Jacuzzi for maximum indulgence. Or, swap your white dress for a tennis skirt and get in a match on the resort's three tennis courts. Part of the Playa Dorada Complex, the resort offers plenty to do on-site (even a cable car that takes you to a spot for panoramic views of the bay) plus local area activities like shopping and horseback-riding. But if the silvery seas are calling to you the resort offers water-bound fun, too, like snorkeling and kayaking, included in the all inclusive plan.

And when you finally decide to hit the hay, grab a night cap from your suite's mini bar, dive into your luscious bed and snuggle with your honey until the sun makes another appearance in paradise
