BelleVue Dominican Bay
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionA budget, 3 star resort located in La Romana. The Bellevue Dominican Bay hotel is only recommended for travelers looking for a basic resort with not a lot of bells and whistles. We recommend upgrading to a 4 star if its within your budget as this hotel does not garner many positive reviews. Often times packages for this hotel will fly into Punta Cana, which is a 2.5 hour drive from the hotel. This is something to keep in mind if booking this hotel.
OverviewSet between the sea and the city, BelleVue Dominican Bay offers a great mix of both. Relax by the pool or enjoy a variety of daily and nightly activities.
Location: A 3 minute walk to Boca Chica Beach, 90 minutes from La Romana airport, 30 minutes to Santo Domingo and 2.5 hours from Punta Cana airport.
The customer service is excellent! Just be aware of people trying to sell some type of time share on property. They are relentless! Decent buffet food. Had friends staying there and booked ahead with package and got a room for little over $300 for a week. I booked through Booking.com and payed close to $170 for 1 night. So shop around online early.
Pictures are deceiving. My hubby and I are NOT picky, campers in fact. This resort is far from expectations of even a decent place. To start, there is a cheap bed sheet (clarify , NOT a fitted sheet) that moves to reveal the mattress, another flat sheet and what (I) think, was a curtain used for bedding. Food was extremely disappointing, no variety,Breakfast ENDS at 9:30!Snack bar only has awful hamburgers (undercooked)And hot dogs. There were no buns for either of them! Ugly lettuce/tomato. THATS IT! (No fries, no pasta, nothing) Unclean areas and surfaces. Because not a garbage can in site.They hold the Internet hostage and then hustle you for an insane amount for just a few days. $80US /5 days?!Day one, we had to go out of the resort to have breakfast with FREE wifi! The buffet's floor was so slippery! (Greasy)Dinner: few choices, chicken with lots of bones.. tasteless rice, few salad choices, and run to get your desert because once it's gone.. you're not getting any!Finally made it for breakfast. Egg shells in their scrambled eggs, NO FRUIT! So forget your smoothie...Beware coffee lovers! They have the worst coffee! And good luck finding a mug!We actually left early, Friday, and had paid for until Sunday.
Please DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! Let me start off by saying i rented three rooms here for a sweet 16 of my niece we were attending. It is one of the most disgusting resorts i have been to. Let me start off with my room. My bathroom had mold, the tub was so dirty it made me want to throw up. The phone in my room didn't work. There was an outlet that had the wires out in which one of the lamps was connected to. When i turned the lamp on the outlet almost caught fire. The tv is so old i didn't even bother to turn it on to see if it worked. My bed sheets had disgusting stains. IMAGINE WHAT TYPE.. Second room had a leak right over the toilet, never got fixed. When you showered your bathroom became a personal pool. Took 2 days to get fixed. The air didn't work. I had to go to the front desk 5 times to get it fixed. And that was after making a scene. Finally fixed. Third room!! No air!!! It didn't work either. Once again a visit to the front desk had that fixed ASAP after making a scene for the second room. Ok moving on to the food. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE. Its the same crap everyday. No type of fruit and if they did have, it was green not ready to eat. Entertainment staff was great no complains. Dinning room staff amazing. Front desk staff rude. The beach is a walk as well as the club, you have to go down a lot of stairs. So if you plan to go clubbing don't drink or you'll be rolling down the stairs. Other then the club there is no bar available to have drinks after hours. So your stuck walking all the way to the club located on the beach!!! Bummer!! The snack bar only serves hot dogs and burgers, which by the way had me sick on my last two days left at the resort. Believe me when i say its worth paying a bit more for a higher end resort rather then staying in this nasty one. Fyi One of my favorites is riu bachata in puerto plata... even with all the issues my family did its best to have a great time at this place. However we will not be returning ever!!!
I brought 45 ppl to this place to celebrate my daughter's sweet 16. Every single person had issues with their room. The first day I got there the AC didn't work in the room, fixed it the next day, and broke down again 3 days later. There was a water leak right at the entrance from the AC. There was water filtration coming from the roof into the bedroom.1 of my guests got her room changed 4 times, she had so many issues. Another one, didn't have a thermostat, just the wires sticking out where the thermostat was supposed to be.The tub was clogged, and water was coming out the bottom of the tub, flooding the bathroom and the room...they know about it, and put a drain right in the bathroom.The furniture looks like they got it out of dumpster. The TV is so old, it's a bid old box!Some of my guest's rooms were missing tiles on the floor, the shower was missing tiles on the wall, and mildew/mold growing in its place.The power goes out at random, they do have a generator that kicks in after about a minute.The beach is full of hustle/hustlers, and have to walk about a half mile to get there.And don't plan an event there -fair warning- they charge, and don't help! You have to physically do everything; you have to bring your decorator, rent stuff, and equipment. They bring the food for the buffet, and the DJ.they don't change the food much, get ready to eat the same thing every day.IT WAS A TOTAL NIGHTMARE, I'M NOW EMBARRASSED WITH MY FRIENDS FOR INVITING THEM THERE.
The service was good, the people that work there are very friendly and hard working.The food was ok, they even roasted 2 pigs outside in the garden. I suggest more fruit at the restaurant. The gardens are beautiful. The Resort has lots of potencial to work with.The location is great, love it.I must say that the room we stayed in needs some renovations, specially the bathroom.The beach is great, a bit of a walk but I like walking.I picked it because was close to my family and had everything i needed.If you go to be spoiled and eat lots of variety, it's not the place. the drinks , brandy or rum it's a no no, it tasts bad.wine and beer ok.I would go back, but I'd like to see an improvment , better bathroom, very important to me.I take this opportunity to thank all of the working team for the great job they do.I wasn't so happy about the sales people on the premises, I know they're trying to make a living but when we say no, please stop insisting , it's frustrating ..I hope my review helps others to make the right choice.
