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).

Had an amazing time at blue bay! Veronica was always making us laugh, the entertainment was a blast! The view on the beach is amazing! Everyone is so friendly and fun. The food is outstanding, and there was always lots to do! The foam party was the best thing to do by the pool

Just got back from another amazing holiday at blue bay villas it was my 10th time going there and from the first time we were treated like family I have never met a staff who is so dedicated to their jobs, there is always something to do if one is so inclined or just relax . The food is always good and if it's suppose to be hot it is.The animation team George veronica Alfredo waldopedroand Julio is the bestalways interacting with the patrons and making sure everyone is welcomed. Ines the manager greets everybody with a smile The resort is small so everything is in easy reach. The rooms are dated but always clean . There could be more umbrellas around the pool . All in all it's a very nice resort and I will be going back againv

Awesome time!!

My friend and I went to celebrate her birthday. It was her first time out of the country and we both had a blast! Everyone at the resort was extra friendly and accommodating. We made the mistake of not having $US Dollars as we had exchanged our money at the airport. It’s best to have some cash to tip instead of tipping with Dominican pesos. From Hanrry, Elvin, Carlos and all the other staff that were very helpful and kind; we appreciated it all. We took part in some excursions and visited the local Ocean World where we swam with the dolphins and sea lions such as Jefe. the excursions were cheaper through Coming 2 located at the resort versus the vendors in the local plaza. Luis Hernandez was an awesome guide on the excursions. He was very knowledgeable and kind. Many people from Canada visit and Germany. The guide and several people on the tour were able to translate and accommodate them as well. The “paparazzi” Francis was also kind. The activities tend to end around 11pm although the bar and restaurant stay open on the beach until 5am. The crowd tend to dwindle off before 11pm so it’s best to try and find something else to do or elsewhere to go if you’re into an all night party. There is a local club in the mall (plaza) next to the resort where you can go and party with people from other resorts and locals as well called CLUBBAR or CLUBAR. Overall it was an awesome experience! The only 3 negatives is that the buffet food is hit or miss some days AND the concierge lady with the blonde hair is relentless and DOES NOT take nonfor an answer. We literally had to find other ways to get to the lobby without running into her. There isn’t any WiFi. NO WIFI!! 😔 :( The guests are all friendly and enjoy meeting new people and will joke and chat with you. The games in the pool, on stage and on the beach are all fun. We met several people who were on their 5th and 6th trip to the same location. DO NOT hesitate to stay at Blue Bay. It was great!!

Decent resort for the price you pay for

I spent time at this resort from March 2019 to early April 2019. Just got back from the resort. Pros for this resort: 1) Close distance to the beach. 2) Rooms have very good A/C and space. You will not find A/C at any other areas but your room. Maybe the VIP lounge has if you upgrade. 3) Activities at the pool and night events are very good. The entertainers do a very good job trying to get everyone involved in activities/events 4) Ala Carte restaurants are decent. 5) Very good for swingers or couples. You meet alot of new people here. Some of them will form groups within your week of stay. 6) Service seems to be good here. Had them fix the toilet twice, they served us pretty quickly. Cons: 1) The Buffet food gets repetitive. I would consider it under par compare to the other ones I've been. It is your only option for food during the day. There is another place to grab fried chicken near the beach. Food option is not much. They do have enough bars. I think 4 of them. 2) Beer is very water down, and other hard liquor are not the main brands. You can purchase for better brands. 3) Small gym, almost non-existent. 4) Pool is too shallow. At this resort, smokers are allowed to smoke in the pool. Myself and others I've met at the resort got ear infection. I would highly recommend you not to dip your head in that toxic pool. The swim up bar is the one that is the most dirty. 5) No wifi at the resort rooms. There is free wifi at the lobby. But you cannot do much with it other than send a few messages and check some emails. 6) In room safe is free for some airline package. Air Canada provides free in-room safe. I think others have to pay. Games on Land: 1) Tennis Court 2) Mini-Golf 3) Foos-ball 4) Table Tennis 5) Card Games/Monopoly/etc Ala Carte Restaurants: 1) Seafood - Nothing fancy, but definitely better than the buffet. 2) Steak - This is definitely the best ala carte at this resort. I would recommend the steak or the mixed grill. 3) Asian - Not bad, but don't expect standards compared to Asian restaurants in Toronto or Vancouver. I would consider this to be a budget resort. As long as your expectation is not high, you will have a good time here. Or at least, there are things you can do to make the week enjoyable here.
