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.
I really wanted to rate this all-inclusive resort higher but a few things stand in the way. First the positives. There are plenty beach lounges and enough trees to park them under. The security guards on the beach are serious about keeping the public out, including the countless vendors of trinkets, hats, food and massages. I have been to 10 DR resorts and none can offer the same. The main pool is large and lovely with plenty of chairs for everyone. The reception staff is very helpful.Unfortunately, maintenance is definitely an issue. I had repeated issues with the A/C until my room was changed. Mattresses and pillows need to be updated. Linen supplies are tight. The food is average at best. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach.
Wonderful place to stay. You have everything that you could desire on site. I felt safe, appreciated, and taken care of by the staff. I wouldn't even consider staying at any other resort in Boca Chica.
Very nice hotel... great services... people at the hotel are very friendly... nice room... and the animation team whoaw!!! Good work Señor Richi Domenech👍... lot of fun. The beach is very nice... there s a little island in the sea
Large resort with beautiful exotic palms and trees. Service in top. Rooms large aprox 30 m2. Good bathroom. Fridge is free but you have to order. Food excellent and variated. Two pools with free bars. And private beach also with free bar. Lots of guards all over make the place secure. Fantastic animation team entertain you from mornin to late evening.Only remark is internet not free. Very expensive about 120 us $ for 2 weeks. But many restaurants nearby have free internet and a cup of coffee there costs about 1 us $.
The Good: The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The food at the a la carte restaurants was surprisingly good. The drinks were well made and actually had alcohol in them (not always the case at an all inclusive). The patios outside the rooms were a nice place to hang out w/o having to sit at the pool all the time.The Bad: The food at the buffet while decent was always the same. This gets boring since you are forced to eat there most of the time. Pool towels are almost impossible to come by. Even having towel cards we were told three times to "come back in 30 minutes" only to return and be told the same thing. The beach across the street is extremely crowded and full of people trying to sell you cheap souvenirs. We only spent about 20 minutes there before retreating to the pool for the rest of the trip.The Ugly: As a group of four we ended up in two rooms. The beds in both rooms were extremely uncomfortable. One room we had was infested in mosquitos. We had to sleep in long pants and hooded sweatshirts to try to keep from getting eaten alive. Collectively we had over 50 bites by the time we left, just from being in our room at night. This room also only had luke warm water at best (most of the time it was just cold) and the ceiling in the bathroom leaked so much that if the people above us took a shower we had a small lake in our bathroom by the time they were done. The second room at least had hot water, but I'm not sure that was worth the family of cockroaches living in the room. We trapped one under a glass on the first day and figured house keeping would take care of it. Three days later it was still there. On top of the one we trapped under a glass we saw at least 2 more on a daily basis in that room.
