We were disappointed with the Blue Bay Villas Doradas for the following reasons 1. The drinks were horrible, food was mediocre. Breakfast and Lunch never changed so little variety. The service was good but they not very friendly. 2. constantly being "harassed" about attending the timeshare 3. all-inclusive means nothing. Had to pay for soda and beer in the room mini frig. Lobby bar was pay for drinks. 4. vendors on beach were extremely aggressive and left no room for relaxation. So we go to the pool, which is not what we went for and the mosquitos were terrible. 5. The room was nothing like the pictures on the web site. The bed was very hard, and the pillows were awful. Bottom line is we will not be returning to the Dominican Republic for our vacations, it over all was not a good experience.

The pool area with bar closes at 6pm, the bathroom was way to small, only one key per room so you weren't able to keep the room nice and cool after being in the sun all day, only one buffet area with very poor quality of food, not enough choices of food, no club or casino in the hotel, and the wifi was very bad.

Did not get the room we reserved

I am very disappointed because we reserved this hotel 2 months ago and we got there they told us that they had problems and they said they were going to send us to another resort because they had problems with one of the buildings with Maintnace So we were sent to another resort, and come to find out they lied to us and we found out they had overbooked the hotel. And never emailed or told us. And we didn’t even get our special dinner that was included in the package cause they over booked it also

Dear Arsenio: Thank you for your visit and for sharing your feedback. Please accept our apology for the inconvenience you have experienced. In fact, we did experience an inconvenience in a building and had to accomodate some customers to a nearby hotel with the same rating, our customers had the opportunity to take advantage of both properties.. We hope to have the opportunity to welcoming you back. Kind regards, Inés Pichardo Resident Manager

Relaxing

Too many young people drinking and getting loud. Throwing drinks in the pool, foul language.

Poor service and food! Would not recommend! We exchanged money upon arriving to have pesos and usd, and when paying for things (wifi, gift shop, excursions) they wouldn't give you change and act like its no problem! Also got sick from the food and missed one of the excursions, which probably would've been the best part of trip! Unfortunate this was my first trip to the Dominican because it will be the last!

decent enough hotel

Pros: waiting staff and crew, eager to help and please.
Cons: room issues mentioned above.
Location: location is fine. there was a shopping plaza within the resort complex so that's always great.
for the money, not expecting a stay at the Ritz, but I was expecting a working mini-bar fridge, room turned over without having to call every day, and bathroom repairs completed before checking in. Also, for some reason we had neighbors that had problem with some playful chit-chat and even the TV on at regular volume and were constantly being "harrassed" about our noise-level that I considered to be in the normal range. Waiting staff was great, condition of pool and bars and eating halls were great, but just those room issues led us to be a little disappointed.

Shady practices!!!

Use somewhere else all inclusive means nothing and few of the staff had a good attitude. Would never use again varying rates on everything. Limit guest freedom too much!!! Felt like I was at an old folks retirement home. Beds hard as bricks!!

Excellent

It's our honeymoon, excellent place for romance and fun...the only downside of the place is that the same day or the next morning, they trying to sell your time share they don't understand the word NO. Wasted two hours there....that's the only downside but the rest 100% fun adventure & Romance 24hrs.
