Rooms need maintenance and fixing. Bigger bathrooms and unclogged drains.

Apple made sure that our transfers were timely and very professional. However we had upgraded so that we would have private check in...we were met with people saying that they would take care of everything and then we found out they were only trying to get us to sign up for a time share or as they put it a vacation packaging. We did not get to eat at all the dining options due to thinking that the "circleone " people were taking care of us. By the time we got reservations most of the options were full for the whole week. I would recommend this resort, but would advise to go directly to the concierge upon arrival to arrange your dining. Other than that our week was filled with lots of fun and relaxation (which is what we were looking for).

This was our 7th visit. Many of the staff remember us. We always book cheapest room and if it is not suitable we can usually get it changed. Higher priced suites aren’t that much better. Choice of two doubles or king, make sure you specify. Staff is great, but after two weeks the food tastes like home. Good days and not so good, but always lots of good choices. You can choose the Animation team activities or choose to veg which is our choice. Played golf ever second day ( multiple purchases reduce price). Don’t expect great rentals. We bought a catamaran cruise on the beach Fantastic experience. Some of the rooms are getting tired, in need of some fixing up. Nothing major, just some veneer peeling, air conditioner leaking I guess, the question is whether we would go back again.....absolutely

Thank you!

I spent one week here with my mom and aunt and had a nice time, thanks to the wonderful staff. They really went above and beyond to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. Shout out to Pedro for the bike tours!

We decided to take a chance on a last minute getaway and chose the Bluebay Villas. The price was right and it was all inclusive and adults only. We were surprised to find that it was a much smaller resort and at the time of year less than half full. The staff were friendly helpful and polite. We had paid a little extra for a superior room that gave us a nice second floor balcony overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds. The entire resort was very clean. The buffet had an excellent variety fo choices for every meal and the quality was surprising good. The buffet staff were first class and very attentive. The beach there was excellent for both sunbathing and walking as there are a number of other resorts in this bay. There is incoming seaweed each night tide but workers are there early in the morning cleaning up. The beach was very well maintained. There were a number of beach vendors who came by but found them not be pushy and a simple no thanks would send them on their way. If you didn't make eye contact then they would walk past. There was a 24 hour smaller buffet and beach bar with pizza, burgers and hot dogs. The resort also will make an effort to have guests attend a presentation on their VIP service and to buy into a plan for there other resorts arounds the world. Compared to other presentations we have attended or heard about this one took and a simple NO and we were done. On the downside if you are not into disco music and loud recreational activities then the beach was the best place to be in the late afternoon and early evening. The entertainment was not particularly good but they get a nod for enthusiasm. Some aspects of the room needed updated but the housekeeping staff were reasonably thorough except for a couple of things that needed a little more attention. The staff were quick to address any issues that were brought to their attention. They wanted to please. Overall we would rate this experience a notch below 4 star. For what we paid it was an enjoyable experience.

The staff are absolute gems

The beach is beautiful and golden. It’s kept very clean (be mindful there are people that sell to on the beach during certain times of the day as domincan beaches are owned by the government. The pools are clean and beautiful. A nice central spot for drinks fun and relaxation. However the greatest highlight of this resort are their amazing staff. They work very hard and are always smiling. The wait staff were very accommodating for my group of seven that travelled together. In particular, Veronica, Edwin and Julio (recreational staff) were the highlight. They are funny, energetic and caring. We talked to them for hours over the week of our trip and we loved them so much we wanted to take them home.

This was our first time at BlueBay Dominican and it was an awesome experience! The rooms were nice, pools were great, beach was beautiful BUT the people/staff were the most memorable. Veronica, Julio, Edwin, Elvin are amazing!! Thank you for making our trip one to remember ☺️
