Old Reviews – BelleVue Dominican Bay

Four of us ( two mid forties couples) just returned from a one week stay (April 10th to April 17th/06) at Hotetur Dominican Bay Resort and here is my review:

Reception upon arrival: Under staffed and disorganized. No one at the reception area was fluent in English. Rooms: We were assigned to building #15. The phone did not work, the toilets leaked, and the balcony door did not lock. All of these problems were straightened out within 24 hours and only after repeated trips to the front desk. Also, the 1500 block of rooms has a resident rooster which sounds his alarm every 10 minutes from 3:am to 7:am. We switched our rooms on day three.

Food: This is a 3 star resort with 3 star food.

Beach: Hey, I don’t mind a walk, but if you want to sit outside of the hotels enclosed area, be prepared to spend up to $5.00 to rent a chair.

Additional costs: On the second night we were there, I was sitting in a resin chair by the pool, when one of the legs on the chair broke. A security guard escorted me to the front desk and I was asked for my room # so that they could bill my room for the chair. The four of us were astounded!!! Finally the manager told me that I would not be held liable for the chair. I then went to my Nolitour Vacation Rep, (Victor) for assurance that I would not be charged, and when he looked up my room #, he told us that based on what we paid for our trip, that we had ro right to complain. At that point I should have also mentioned that we had been hounded by one of the resident prostitutes that stay there, but I think I already know what his answer would have been to that.

Anyway, we booked this trip last minute. We paid $297.00 pp plus tax, and got our monies worth of food, booze and sun. Would we go back??…I can’t see this resort in our future vacation plans.
