Natura Park Beach Eco Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Blau Natura is a smaller resort but with a beautiful beach and grounds. The area is notable for their greenery and wildlife. This is a quieter resort that does not have as many clubs or nightly entertainment as other competitors, making it perfect for both families and older clients. The rooms are well-kept, and the food enjoyable.
Location: Beachfront/Oceanfront, 50 minutes to Higuey, 20 minutes from the airport.
Enjoyed the resort, grounds, beach and restaurants. We upgraded to the "Select" class. This gave us an upgraded room with new furniture and upgraded amenities. Top shelf drinks was also a benefit. Staff, especially bar tenders, are great, friendly and kind. There is a Select area on the beach, but, due to a lack of signage, security is constantly asking people to leave. We saw numerous incidents of bartenders pouring premium drinks for anyone and the Select beach server taking orders from non-select guests in and outside of the Select area beach. Reported to main desk numerous times but nothing done. Paying an extra fee for the Select upgrade should be respected by all staff. Probably won't return. Also- "Domestic" beer in rooms is Budweiser. What's with that?
Second time here, this time solo.The food is quite good. Huge selection at the main buffet, smaller selection at the beach/pool buffet, but I prefered the food there.Excellent wait staff. Nice beach. Lots of palm trees and shade cover ( except often some guests get up early to reserve primo spots with their towel. ) Not a party place, a little on the mellow side at night, but a nearby disco/ casino is just a quick cab/ walk away.I talked to numerous guests there that were on their second or third timer at the resort.I'll probably come back.
I am writing this while keeping in mind it was one of the cheapest resorts on the list. The staff are hit and miss. Yordany at the front desk got us a new room with a queen bed within one hour of arriving! This amazed anyone who heard as we met two groups who could not get into their premium rooms without a days long struggle. And yet we never got light bulbs or an extra blanket. The towel folks seem to like to give a run around and it is a giant waste of one's time. There are some outstanding, cheerful bartenders at the pool bar. Tip them!English is not fluent for many but a happy attitude and a reminder that you are in another's country makes it all ok. I got stuck waiting at the desk for currency change and just went to the store for a postcard and they found someone to make change.The food.... as a vegetarian it is always a bit tough. It is very repetitive but the omelettes are ok and the fruit is excellent and the mustard salad dressing is yummy. It was pretty much average resort fare lacking in imagination but one will not starve and it is a step above Cuban cheap places. The Italian a la carte has, strangely, one of the best Risottos I've had in some time. The other two were disappointing but a change of pace from the buffet. The pool is clean and cool but the pool bar is more like a cave and not a real meeting place like most. The beach is lovely and we never had to fight for chairs. There is lots of shade!! Next door is a national park and it is a nice walk. Sadly, there is a lot of garbage and I would encourage the hotel to really expand on their "nature" theme and give out bags for collecting or have day each week that the guests can help out, people get bored. There were a lot of weeds on the beach and in the water.Turn right at the beach and head out for a nice 15 walk. If you want your excursions for less speak to some of the guys at the pier. We had a nice beer in the local bar and enjoyed the kids and being off resort. Turn left at the beach and you can walk to the bigger hotels. It is quite a hike (7 ish KM) maybe, to the Barcelo and there you can catch a taxi to wherever. Take a water bottle and some shoes for the rough parts. We went to the San Juan Plaza and had lunch and snooped around the grocery store. Much cheaper rum than at the resort. Taxi back was $15 usd with a bit of a haggle. I believe you can buy bus tickets to the plaza and back from the resort.We took the bus from in from of the hotel to Higuey. It took about an hour, cost 120 DRP, I think, and was an interesting ride through the countryside. When we arrived in Higuey there were tour guides waiting at the church and we paid $15 usd (pretip) for a guide, about 2 hours. He then popped us back onto our return bus with lots of time to spare. This was a great afternoon.The rooms are good. Hot water is hit and miss but remember it is 29 degrees outside. Our mini bar was stocked well but our buddy not so much. Overall, the hotel is quite ok for the price. There are a few things that would improve things. The lobby bar is too small. They should renovate the upstairs space and put a bar there so people have somewhere to meet. A little more variety in the food and a bit more training for the staff. We had one night when there was no bar open. This is not acceptable. They close the beach bar lunch sometimes, I believe according to how full the hotel is. The 15 minutes of free internet per day was hit and miss. The paid internet ($10ish/day) was good enough for emails etc but required constant sign in.The birds around the resort a very charming. I would go back. I had a great time there!
Wicker furniture needed throwing out, worn out curtains, bathroom above us was leekingEntertainment was poor for adults great for kids. Food was good and the grounds beautiful this is not wheel chair friendly. flew with sunwing never again.7
This is a true 4 star resort with good and bad points. It is defiantly tired in areas and updates needed. The upgraded select area is not really renovated. The room is closer to the pool and beach but the bathroom is old still. The shower had luke warm water everyday. We just ate in the buffet everyday after hearing the restaurants weren't worth it. The food was good and had a variety to choose from. You won't get sick of the choices if you just pick something different each day. The drinks were your average resort drinks. No speciality blender type picks. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The front check in staff would be the only ones I would say need to learn to be more helpful. I was worried it would smell because of the ponds and wild life but it didn't at all. Was really neat watching the animals who were not afraid of humans at all. If going to this resort knowing what to expect you will have a great time and not be disappointed. If you want a higher end Place then pick a 5* and pay the prices that come with it. It drives me crazy when people complain about things that obviously a lower star will have.
