Visited BLCM the weekend of 10/13 -10/15. Overall, we had a very good time and would not hesitate to book here again. Here is a breakdown of what we encountered. This is our personal experience and opinion. Yours may be different. PARKING: We arrived to a semi-full parking lot. The parking lot is not spacious. We were able to find a spot without any wait time. CHECK IN: We arrived at 1:30 pm. There were no lines when we arrived. We had to wait (and we understood) as check-in time is not until 3:00 pm. We were allowed to use all of the hotel's amenities while we waited. On an adverse note, it appears the hotel has "assigned" buildings/rooms for those who book through 3rd party websites. We used Expedia. My 80 year old dad walks with a cane and we were provided with a room very far from the main area (building # 9). It was a bit inconvenient and I felt the hotel could have given us a much closer room due to the fact the hotel was only about 33% full. SCENARY/GROUNDS: This resort is beautiful. Grounds and well kept. Gorgeous palm and coconut trees. Plenty of signs to help you navigate through the resort. This was very helpful. ROOM: Our assigned room (# 9101) was very basic. Hot water was good. AC was GREAT. Beds/pillows were good enough to sleep in. 32 inch flat screen TV on the wall (we didn't watch TV). Housekeeping was friendly and cleaned our room during our stay. Our toilet flushed ok. Our only complaint was the bathtub. It did NOT drain properly and we had to wait in between showers for it to drain out. We didn't complain because we don't like it when unknown people are in our room (especially if we are not there) and we weren't about to sit around and wait for the maintenance crew to show up. BEACH/POOL: The beach was good. There was a noticeable amount of seaweed (on the sand and in the water). Water looked nice, not crystal clear. Beach chairs go quickly so get there early. I saw a one vendor who did not appear to be pushy. Again, the hotel was about 33% full so the beach area was not crowded at all. The pool area was our favorite. Pool was super clean and it's where most of the entertainment takes place. We spent most of our day at the pool. Both ends of the pool are accessible for children/kids. As the hotel was not full, towels and beach chairs were not an issue during our stay. FOOD: We enjoyed our food choices. Upon arrival, we made dinner reservations (you must make reservations if you want to eat at their featured restaurants). We had dinner at the Orale (Mexican) and Mylos (Mediterranean) restaurants. We did not stay long enough to enjoy the other 2 restaurants on site. Orale was very good. Mylos was great. It was the highlight of our food experience. The buffet restaurant was good with plenty of choices. Breakfast was great and there was a restaurant always open to grab a bite (except between the hours of 2:00 am to 6:30 am). HONORABLE MENTION: Santos Guevara and Gerson Pichardo for going above and beyond the call of duty in providing my 80 year dad with everything he requested or needed. This level of service deserves to be mentioned. Thank you guys. ADULT BEVERAGES: All you can drink pina coladas and bahama-mama's. All you can drink Presidente beer. All you can drink Brugal and basic local rums. Main bar area and disco bar is stocked with upscale liquors that is NOT INCLUDED in your regular all-inclusive rate. Nice to know this option is available for those that choose to pay a little extra for better quality liquor. ENTERTAINMENT: We watched 2 entertainment shows. They were both dance shows. The shows were performed at night (after dinner time). The shows may not be "Broadway" caliber but we really enjoyed them. The costumes and dance moves were great! They have a basic kids act that takes place before the main entertainment show. DISCO: Disco opens right after the night entertainment show concludes. The music was to my liking and I loved the fact there is no smoking allowed inside and they do not permit anyone who is not a hotel guest. The disco runs until 1:00 am on weekdays and 2:00 am on weekends. EXCURSIONS/OFF SITE ACTIVITIES: There are plenty of excursions and off site activities to do. These activities are not included in your all-inclusive hotel stay. It will cost you extra to participate in the excursions. The excursions kiosks are located in the main lobby area and next to the towel distribution room by the pool. We did not partake in any so I cannot comment on it. SUGGESTIONS: - A stomach virus will absolutely crush your vacation. Especially if your children get sick. With that said, always ask for and drink bottled water. The hotel serves what they call filtered water. The water is poured from a metal pitcher onto your glass. I personally don't know what process they use to filter this water. If you have a choice, always drink bottled water at any Caribbean resort. - When booking your stay, it is best to include transportation to/from the resort with a reputable company that shuttles guests to/from the airport/hotel. The local taxis are absolute opportunists and they will OVERCHARGE YOU. - If you like to tip people, bring plenty of single bills LASTLY: In my personal opinion, this is a 3.5 - 4 star hotel. Unless you adamantly seek a 5 star hotel with the red carpet treatment, book here with confidence. Also keep in mind your vacation is what you make it. If you bring negativity with you, it will hamper your experience and your review. Hope this review helped.

This was our 8th time at this hotel. We had a great time as always. Hopefully TUI will reinstate their flights to here soon. A special mention to Mosquito who is the best member of the entertainment team, always full of fun. Also, to Caroline who was very helpful when we encountered a problem with our room.

Good service

The workers at this resort were very kind and gave really good service. Oguis makes amazing churros and always has a nice big smile. Josue Polanco was my favorite person my husband and I felt like we knew him forever♡ and Oscarina was very friendly and helpful. They were all honestly amazing I wish I could list them all. Thank you for the good service!
