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.
First and foremost I have to comment on the staff at this resort. They were fabulous and made my holiday much more enjoyable. Especially a man named Samuel. He fixed our lock about 5 times!!! My hero and he’s pretty easy on the eyes as well (wink, wink).Now for the complaints:The air conditioner didn’t work all week. We asked for it to be fixed but it never was. We switched rooms and it was the same thing. I ended up MacGyvering it a bit to get a bit of relief at night. The door key card gadget didn’t work for the first 4 days so we had Samuel come program it a couple of times a day.The drive from the airport is about 2 hours which is a bit lengthy but at least it was air conditioned.Our toilet worked half of the time. We had to have a plumber in once.As for the pros:As I said before, the staff were amazing!! The guest service guy ( Teidys) was delightful and made sure someone was taking care of our needs, booking our dinner reservations. He remembered my name all week which I think is pretty cool. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and speak pretty good English. Bartenders were all super friendly and remembered our drinks quickly. The entertainment staff put on a good show.The food was decent. We always found something to eat. Found out on the sixth night that there was a midnight snack place. The beach was gorgeous!!! Unfortunately we couldn’t bring the lounge chairs closer to the beach. We were farther back so the locals and vendors can’t bug us.This was my first time in the Dominican and didn’t know what to expect with the weather. Unfortunately it rained the first 2 days, the next 3 were awesome and the last day was gloomy. The temperature was still in the high 20’s so we just hung out in the pool while it rained.The resort was definitely a ‘you get what you paid for’. All in all, I didn’t have a great time because of the people I was with and that it wasn’t -30!!!!
Our family and friends recently stayed at the Bellevue Dominican Bay and were very pleased. We felt that this hotel offered very good value for the cost.The staff were very friendly and accommodating. If there was anything we needed, the staff were there with a smile to help. It was a very busy week given that many guests were there for the holidays and baseball tours. Nevertheless, they were very responsive and helpful.The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets offered a wide variety of foods and were available for a good period of time. The fact that we could have dinner between 6 and 9 ish was great in case we decided to stay at the beach or game later than expected.The New Years Eve festivities were amazing. The full buffet was quite the treat. Everything from lobster tail to filet of beef were offered. They even had s big gingerbread house and desserts made into fun designs. The special touches were really nice and quite a surprise.The holiday show was fantastic! Fireworks, flame dancers and more! What a treat.I️ did not rate this ‘five star’ for the type of hotel, but for the overall experience. Given the cost, amenities, meals, hotel staff and hospitality, the experience was excellent and we would definitely come back.Thanks for making our visit to the DR so enjoyable!!!
This place is about on par with Motel 6. The beds are rock hard and the blankets are scratchy and who knows the last time they were cleaned. I only had one hot shower on my 3 day stay. The grounds were kept fairly nice but the pool area left a lot to be desired. The water didn’t look clean so I didn’t get in. Worst buffet food I’ve ever had. I don’t expect all inclusives to offer 5 star cuisine but the food was terrible.
Stayed here recently for four nights. The pros: Nice landscaping, very friendly staff. Meals were decent. Fairly nice beach across a walkway. Good security. I always felt safe.The cons: definitely a budget resort. Beds are hard. Rooms could use some updating. My patio door did not lock.The majority of the guests were Russians when I was there. Overall was a pleasant stay.
I had the opportunity to stay 2 night in this resort and was very good place to stay, the room was clean, the food and beverage quality is very good and the restaurant a la carte was great, the staff is very helpful and professional. Thanks for so very nice experience.
