Blue Bay Villas Doradas
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I just checked out from this beautiful all inclusive resort in Puerto Plata, everything was great, beautiful and clean hotel. Beautiful surroundings with the beach seconds away. 4 different restaurants available with very different food, and it's part of the all inclusive package. 3 swimming pools. Nice bedroom. Well, I will be back for sure. What makes this place extra special....is the staff, always smiling, always ready to help. The animation team is fantastic, full of energy and fun....Thanks to Jorge, Duracell, coca cola, Barbie, Yanabra, Anthoni, DJ Pedro, Raul....but with a special mention to Veronica who is amazing. Thank you Blue Bay for everything and I will be back next year.....maybe with a nice discount!!!!hahaha..
I came here for a bachelor party with a few friends and it was super fun despite a bit of bad weather.The rooms are decent, but our room key didn't work every day and we had to get it recoded often. Didn't spend much time in it honestly, just for sleep and shower.The food was really good, kept my energy up and the service at the buffet was great. Rosanna, Modesta, Fernando made sure our glasses were never empty. The a-la-cartes were tasty, the steak restaurant had very tender meat.The beach and pool were not super busy, but there was always something to look at and something to do. Which brings me to...Entertainment. The animacion team here is so much fun. These guys and girls are pros and always make you feel welcome. During the day there is volleyball, games, competitions, and prizes to be won. At night there is dancing and the girls make sure to get everyone up and dancing. Barbie, Yandra, Veronica, Alfredo, Anthony, Coca Cola, and Jorge are such genuinely great people. This resort is lucky to have them.
I loved here! I had a lot of fun! The animation team were top notch and we got to know the staff very well! I would love to come back. The drinks kept coming, and the service was top notch!!! Barbie, George, Alfredo, yandra, Veronica, DJ Pedro,anthony, coca cola, raul were all fantastic! Rosanna, Modesta, Fernando at the buffet were Excellent servers as well.

We stayed at the BlueBay Oct 18-Nov 2, 2016. In my opinion this is a 2 1/2 star budget hotel, you get what you paid for. What to ExpectCheck In: We were checked in as a group, it was easy and quick.Room Safe: You will pay 3$ per day for your safe. You pay for the week in advance at the front desk.Internet: is 25$ for SIX days, log out after each use.Room Key: You are given one room key. You place your key in a slot by the door of your room to turn on all the lights and run the AC. Our room cooled off very quickly. The resort is very small, so one key wasn't a problem.Beds and pillows: King size was very firm, the pillows were lumpy, similar to what you would find in a 2 1/2 star hotel in Canada.In Room Fridge: Has two bottles of beer, one Pepsi, one Sprite, one 4 litre bottle of water. ONLY THE WATER IS REPLENISHED. Bring a personal water bottle you can refill.Rooms: The rooms are clean, but are very old, again, you get what you pay for. We did not see one bug or gecko in our room. We tipped daily but seldom received face clothes, our room towels were always replaced. The sheets were changed daily or every second day. Came back to our room to find a vase of roses twice during our stay, very nice!Beach towels: You will have beach towels in your room on your arrival, you trade your used towel in for a fresh one. If they ran out of towels in the evening there were always more in the morning. We had our beach towels replaced by hotel staff numerous times in the evening while we are out. Nice touch.The food is in the main buffet is alright, similar to Cuba. Eat lunch at the beach, very good fried chicken.Beach: The beach was not crowded but we were there in the off season. The vendors on the beach are aggressive, just be pleasant and firm and they leave you alone. There is a market within walking distance on the beach (about 25 min walk) The Orange Market has a lot of vendors and the prices are very low. The disco is by the beach in the evening, most mornings the beaches were littered with cups, cigarette butts and sometimes vomit. There is no wait staff on the beach or by the pools. Most guests pick up their own glasses and garbage.Bars: The drinks are served in small plastic cups, bring an insulated cup from home.The Grounds: Tidy with a few trees and shrubs. The Staff: An excellent group of people who really try their best for you, it is just that the standards are not on par with Canada. Would we go again to this resort? Likely not, but met many people who come multiple times per year to this resort.
