- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband and I have traveled for years, many resorts, many different Islands! But Puerto Plata is our favorite, friendly people, exceptional service. We have been to Bluebay Villas Doradas 12 times. We really enjoy this resort, you can not ask for a friendlier staff, right from the groundskeepers, to the maids, restaurnat and bar staff and the entertainment team, they are all fantastic! management always around and working hard to insure your holiday is pleasant!There are 3 pools, one is in a quite area if you just want to relax, or the activity team will keep you busy if that is what you want. All 3 ala cartes restaurants are good, buffet always a great variety. Grounds are well kept, hotel is clean, and a great size, beach is nice. So go relax and enjoy your vacation, we always do!
Got back from this hotel yesterday, absolutely gorgeous hotel! Beautiful beach and the staff are amazing, can't thank you enough for the most amazing 2 weeks! We were there when hurricane Irma was going past and the hotel were brilliant! They kept us all safe and happy the whole time even when we were stuck in the refuge rooms they still kept our spirits up. The restaurant staff are constantly filling up your drinks and removing dirty plates so quickly, rooms are spotless and beach bar is lovely. Only issue we had was the food, there wasn't much selection in the evening and the theme nights tend to be the same every night plus the Chinese restaurant wasn't open very much whilst we were there but that may have been to do with the hurricane. Would like to add a special mention to luis Ruiz at the beach bar, he's hilarious and made our nights so entertaining!!! Also Antonio Alvarez who works in the beach bar too, he's a lovely guy and was always so welcoming to us and had us in stitches with laughter!!! Brill hotel and would of given it a 5 apart from the food!

We booked through Bookit.com. I stayed at Blue Bay for 8 nights in the beginning of September and it very quickly became my second home. It is an adult only hotel which made the stay peaceful. The hotel offers bike ride tours and runs on the beach which my husband and I took advantage of. Alexander Chevalier (I think that's how you spell it) from the animación team was super friendly and informative. First we tried the bike ride tour (with Alex on our first morning at the hotel) where we took a bike ride around the area, he was helpful and knowledgeable and welcoming, it was in fact our first day at the hotel. I'm very short and he helped me with any difficulties I had with the bike. He treated us like we were family which was important to us because we felt so welcomed and comfortable in the Hotel. He makes the environment so friendly and lively with his good energy. We enjoyed the bike ride so much that we went on the beach run/walk the next morning at 8AM with Alex and it was another pleasurable experience. We would then see him at night for the night show and at the club by the beach. He knew us by our names which also made us feel welcomed as if we were with family. I wanted to speak to his manager (but did not have the time) and let them know that Alexander made our stay so pleasurable and unforgettable. I recommend anyone who goes to this hotel to do the bike tour and beach run with him, he's super fun and professional as well. He even gave us some fitness tips as well since he was a personal trainer. He was just all around amazing and helpful to us making our stay relaxing yet inclusive. He would get my husband to participate in the activities for the day at the beach and pool area which was great as well. The young man that was regrets to as Duracell (like the battery) was also welcoming and friendly to us. We had the platinum package (which was worth it because of the top shelf drinks, unlimited hotel reservations, and 3 hours of free wifi a day).Our favorite restaurant was the Japanese which was called Jardín de Jade, we went there twice during our stay and we also did try the other restaurants. There we met Rodolfo Monegro and Rafael Cabrera which were EXCEPTIONAL servers. Rodolfo was always super attentive and made sure we were always ok on water and drinks. By the second/third time we saw him he knew us by our names and welcomed us into whichever restaurant we we at that night with a warm greeting. Asking us how we were enjoying our stay. Rafael Cabrera was another server that left a lasting impression on us with his wonderful and attentive service. They would usually work together on the same shift making our restaurant experiences romantic (we were celebrating a 5 year anniversary). They made our experience so amazing that we would come back to the restaurants every night just to be served by them. They truly should be rewarded for their outstanding service. When you're on vacation you just want to be taken care of and treated well because at the end of the day, you are paying money to be in a relaxing environment. We come from New York and their service surpassed any waiters from where we live. It got to the point where even if they were off from work that night, they would make sure that another co worker of theirs was taking good care of us.The guest services guy would I believe his name was Hamler, we had an inconvenience with room service and he compensated us with a romantic dinner on the beach, which worked out because it was our 5 year anniversary. We really appreciated it. Client satisfaction is very important to this hotel and they address any and all issues. Pros:The hotel was super peaceful and relaxing. They offered painting classes hosted by Narciso who was amazing! I believe the classes would happen Wednesday and Sunday, I went to both. The entertainment was good. Every night had a theme, our favorite was the Dominican one which was Saturday. Friendly and welcoming staff.Cons:The damn taxis drivers. I cannot stress enough how rude these men are. I'm from New York so I use the Uber service, and Uber is available in puerto plata. The hotel taxi drivers would want to fight my uber driver. This happened on three separate occasions and it was so frustrating. DO NOT TAKE HOTEL TAXIS. They will over charge you significantly and they're unprofessional because one you don't want to use their services and you use services like uber, they become physical and confrontational. Deplorable behavior. This hotel was what we were looking for and we will be returning!!!!
Resort was wonderful! Lovely resort! Amazing staff!! Alfredo was especially amazing! Made sure we had great time with lots of activities and drinks! Beach looked amazing! Played beach volleyball everyday! I would recommend going to each of the a la cart restaurants! Was delicious! Room was cozy and cleaned everyday
