Rooms – We had a standard room with two queen size beds.
when we requested a cot for the third lady that was with us they did not have cots at this hotel.When Oscar Liar the hotel manager had the staff move a queen size bed from another room to our room I was blown away. We would of been ok with just a mattres but he had them move the bed as well. This was a huge surprise to us. I never seen this kind of service in my 9 times to the Dominican Republic ever.Oscar and Gemma his partner went way beyond the customer service we could of ever expected.
Restaurants – There are three A la cart restaurants. My favourite was the grill awsome tender steak you did not need a knive.They also have a seafood,as well as chinese.
Bars – There is a 24 hr bar by the beach another bar near the quiet pool and a bar near the main pool as well as a swim up bar. The bartenders are all wonderful people and eager to please. My favourite bar tender is Juan he works the swim up bar. My drinks were ready before my glass emptied. Juan kept everyone happy we all loved him. Then there was David the bartender that worked the beach bar. He would also serve you on the beach. Just lay back an relax and David would come and take your order well you soaked up the sun. I have never been served on the beach in the Dominican Republic before.
Beach and Pools – The beach was cleaned daily. There was always enough loungers and the hotel was full. The pools were kept sparkling clean.
Grounds – The grounds were clean and all trees trimmed beautifully.
Activities – We joined in the activies everyday. There was dart tournements. Cooking lessons,cocktail lessons, ping pong tournements as well as volley ball in the pool and the beach volleyball. You could go for yoga lessons and pool arobics. There was lots to do if you wished too.
Tours – I did not take any tours this year because I had done alot of them on other visits to the D.R. The outback Safari is a all day tour and is a must if you want to learn about the dominican culture. The guides are very knowledgeable and speak good english. Your drinks and food are included in the price of the tour.
Conclusion – I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I have stay at some 5 star hotels in the D.R and the blue bay was a lot better then that. The food was amazing. The selections were plentiful.
we love the wings,burgers and fries down by the beach.
The buffet had great soups fresh baked breads of all varieties.The pasta bar was very good. The selections were of fish, beef, pork and chicken every day. They would have theme nights and we loved the Mexican night. I have no complaints about this hotel and can not wait to go back again. I will definately return to the Blue Bay Getaway in the Playa Dorados complex. Thank You Oscar and Gemma, Tony,Odaly,Juan Sexy Robert,David, Elsavador,Olinda,also all the staff were wonderful people. Miss you already.
