I spent 2 weeks in this beautiful country! The staff were always there to help whenever it was needed. And they all made sure you had a nice stay and experience. And if something would happen, they were there to help you in any way possible. I loved their service and the fact that they always made you smile with their positive energy. The room I had was big and clean. Good AC. The food was delicious. There was something for everyone. The variety was good and the fruits was the cherry on top!The animationteam was always on the go and cheering for everyone to join their activities. It may be a hotel for adults but it's alot of action going on all the time. Fun for some, and less fun for some. :)The bar was always crowded, and make sure to get your drinks from Luis Alejo! The best bartender! Amazing drinks, good service and a whole lot of laughter with this guy! You won't get disappointed! :)I would recommend this hotel for young adults, who travel with a partner or with friends. And a shout out to the lobbystaff Jonathan, Junior and Fransisco! And to the staff at the buffe - Rosanna, Rafael and Gabriel!
Firstly I'd like to say this is in no way a fakereview as others have suggested happens. My sister and I stayed here from New Years Eve for 2 weeks and had a fantastic time. This is not a perfect hotel and there are some issues which could be easily rectified at minimal expense in my opinion - the people who work here are fantastic though. Front deskWe arrived and were welcomed home. We found the front desk people friendly and accommodating. Any issues were quickly resolved. (Thank you Jonathan ). Wifi$60 per week is daylight robbery! It was cheaper for me to use roaming. £7.50 a day which includes texts and calls to the UK. Bear this in mind if you're thinking of paying it.Circle one (time share)I was asked twice whether I wanted information both times by the same person but she wasn't aggressive and didn't press me when I said I wasn't interested.RoomThe room was a good size with a nice balcony (2208). It was fairly clean but could have been better. There were some issues which were addressed when raised. The sheets are horrible! They're not changed enough and feel worn, if they were white and crisp it would feel a lot better. Shower was adequate and clean. The fridges are refilled with water which was fine for us as we could always nip to the bar if we wanted a drink of anything else. We did have 2 room keys (by mistake I think ) but made sure we didn't leave the aircon etc on. Charging $3 for the safe per day is a mistake in my opinion. We used the lock on my case. PoolsLiked both pools and they always seemed clean. Only thing I didn't like is smoking at the pool bar... (and I do smoke ) doesn't seem fair to the non smokers and is a bit off putting to think there might be ash! We had no trouble getting towels. The chairs are uncomfortable though so could do with replacing. The ones at the beach are better. Entertainment We loved the animation team, they work hard and are all lovely people.. Alfredo and Antony my dancing partners every evening, Barbie, Veronica and Yandra and Jorge are so much fun and Coca Cola is very funny and a lovely man - we love you all! (For free) <3. The pool show was particularly good but honestly we loved them all. The disco at the beach bar was hit and miss. The one at the plaza was better and is open til 5 or 6am.FoodWe ate at the buffet and didn't try the Other restaurants as we were happy with the choice every day. Everyone in the buffet were super friendly especially Rafael <3 Luis and Antonio. Can't fault anything about it at all. Very Occasionally we had to wait but so what? We were on Dominican time. Bars Special thanks to Santo who was so attentive and always had our drinks ready for us... Luis and the other guys at the pool and beach bars were also friendly and gave us excellent service.BeachBeach chairs always available but could do with more shade for us people who burn! Vendors were polite but could be a bit much as there are a lot of them. Beach was a bit grubby after the rain but I think that's down to playa dorada to clean up as I saw the guys working hard to do just that All the staff are a credit to Bluebay and made it a pleasure to spend our holiday there - I will be back :)) If the issues mentioned could be resolved I think you'd get a lot more 5 star ratings.
We had incredible time Clean place awesome food everyone was SUPER friendly a big shoutout to animation group George Duracell Anthony Coca Cola Yantra Veronica Barbie &DJ Pedro definitely going back ❤️
buffet always cold food , nosy , locals badgering clients and pay bar in foyer, rain most days but not anyone's fault. but entertainment during day was mostly old board games htat you would find in a old age home, very disappointing, could not step foot on beech without being accosted by locals peddling their wares, and if you stayed up at main aREA THEN YOU WERE ACCOSTED BY CIRCLE ONE PEOPLE VERY DISAPPOINTING ONLY BRIGHT SPOT IN THE WHOLE AFFAIR WAS THE ANIMATION TEAM.. HATS OFF FOR THEM , THEY MADE THE 7 DAYS LESS EXCRUCIATING, ROOM WAS CLEANED ONCE .in a week never cleaned th ebathroom it was disgusting . sheets on bed all stained and old paint peeling, its a old resort and should be shut down
