I stayed at this hotel in October the staff at the hotel was very friendly and the food was what exspected the entertainment around the pool was good and the shows improve as the weeks went onthe Beach bar was excellent and the service was good a little tip over the week end the local come to stay and it get very busy at the pool so if you can book trip out then come Monday its back to normal,to get about go to main gate and barter on price to go into ports prarta if there is a group of you it can be a lot cheaper than book I ng with your rep we had siveral good days outand it didn't cost a lot,around the hotel there is a little shoping complex where you do t have to pay four the I ternet because it free just have a drink at the bar at the hotel you have to pay a lot of rollers four it try out the 3 alacart restraints the steak one is quite good and the fish is not to bad at all overhaul I was a single traveller the rooms are very good and very clean but ash to be away from the pool as it quite. Noisy so try to get near the spar as it not so noisy and there is a nice little pool and a sun trap there I would come back to this hotel again as it a small hotel with a very friendly atmosphere the pool bar is Avery good place to make friend I was 1 person but ended up as a groups of 7new friend had a supper time there was a mixtures of Canadian and English and some German but not to many plenty of sun beds and they don't tolerate leaving g towel on sun bedsis in most places I've been to I hope this will be helpful to other single traveler cheer derek from england
After reading some of the reviews we weren't too sure what to expect. Villas of 2 or 3 storeys and grounds very well manicured. Very clean resort, staff very friendly, couldn't do enough to make your stay comfortable. Rooms good, bathroom a little small but adequate and well stocked. Pools lovely and very clean. Beach wonderful with lovely beach beds to lounge on and lots of chair lounges. You can walk the beach for miles. Ocean was so warm. Resort never seemed crowded - never had to "save" beach lounges, etc. Drinks great. Oriental a la carte restaurant wonderful food. Seafood a la carte could have more seafood selection but what we had was tasty. Overall food was good - no complaints here.
What a mis-sold dump,seemed OK and was at a good price,asked for a quiet room and got one near the spa.booked for two weeks,but following the first Saturday we transferred out to another hotel,which were bothered about its clients.alone with othersthis place was over run with locals at the weekend,in the pool drinking and smoking,discarding half empty drinks into the pool loads of ghetto blasters around the pool,a team of drum bashing locals banging away from 08.00 till 00.00 , barging in the dinning room,just generally taking over,even to the extent that a seemingly young boy,mid teens was allowed to stand on the bridge over the swamp area spitting glasses of beer at the local ducks,never mind he shouldn't have been on the grounds.food is very poor quality, in our room was a coffee machine with the wrong plug on it,reported this and the said to flick the trip in the fuse board ?so no chance of any hot drinks in the room ,no way of making tea,unless you count their idea,empty the coffee machine,boil the water and make tea,not withstanding the fact the machine could not be used for anything as it had the wrong plug ?even with the adaptors we had, it didn't heat upmini bar was stocked with a complementary drink,well a coke and a can of fanta and a bottle of water,this was a sample for the people who had a superior room ?air con was great,rep very good ,everything else rubbish,asked for tea,got a teabag in hot milk,waiting staff good but after 6 days we transferred up the coast two hotels away to the gran Ventana ,a few hundred yards away,but in another world.in short if i was offered the blue bay for free or the gran Ventana at £1500 i would pay.does that say it all,just in case it misses the point,we tried to get a flight back prior to getting moved.Thompson rep 10+blue villas 1Gran Ventana 9plane 20 out of 10 what a machine well done Boeing i will review the Gran Ventana separately in another review.please don' waste your money here,it's hard to save,don't waste it.only ten/15 minute transfer from the airport,but no aircraft noisedeparture is a nightmare , they shouldn't allow large planes in if they an't cope,treated like cattle,hand luggage had to pushed down three,one broken,tables,orders barked at the 1000 passengers [two 787 planes in there at the same time ? ,sniffer dog mounted my case and and all they did was yank him off .if they spent the $20 exit tax from one plane they might do some well needed repairs/improvements
Traveled here for a family event we had a total of 8 people in our group and the staff was absolutely amazing, very helpful and always smiling and happy.I would definitely visit here again very relaxed atmosphere and always something going on to keep us entertained.Thanks to all the guys from the entertainment.🍫, Robert, Veronica, alfredo, George, DJ Pedro, yandra
Stayed here for two weeks from 7th Oct. I had previously requested a room near the spa pool and was pleased with our room. We had two double beds and a balcony. I would suggest you ask for Block 7 (our room was 7208). All of the staff were amazing and friendly. Pablo on the beach was great, bringing you drinks whilst lounging on the sun loungers. We never had trouble finding sun beds or shade and it was nice that nobody reserved the loungers. We met some lovely people who only added to the wonderful experience. We booked a excursion for the dirt buggies with a seller on the beach and that was great fun. We also went go karting, which is just outside Costa Dorada, but unless you are in a large group and just want a laugh, I would not recommend as they were quite slow.The food in the buffet was lovely and always found something to eat. There are 3 a la carte restaurants, seafood,bbq and oriental. We did not like the seafood, the bbq was amazing especially the chateaubriand and the oriental was also amazing.The egg station man was fantastic, omelettes were lovely. Bacon is available every other day.The only negatives I would have is the beach sellers - there are so many of them. I do appreciate they are only trying to make money but you cannot hold a conversation without constant interruption. Perhaps they should introduce the flag system where you can put a flag up saying 'No thank you'. Also the WIFi charge is ridiculous. We walked along to the Mall and had a lovely cocktail in the Rock Bar and got free wifi. Overall we had a great time and met some good people and I would definitely return to the resort again.
