Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We enjoyed our stay here! The Resort was clean and the staff super friendly especially 1 guy, SUPER WALDO!!!! He was amazing. Always energetic and getting people involved ( not pushy like a salesman). I f it wasn't for Waldo I don't think our trip would have been as good as it was. I would return to this resort just because of him but if he wasn't there I'm not sure I would. The food was decent but seemed repetitive and not a lot of options. On the buffet they had 16 "plates" and out of those 16, probably 14 were the same food. This resort was quite, until the weekend when 100's of "locals" came to resort. I have no problem with that at all the more the merrier. But when they party and scream until 4-5 in the morning and then start to blast their own music at 7:30am, not the most pleasant wake up call for a vacation. A little heads up would have been nice or a little more strict for "parting times" Heard from another couple he went to front desk at 3am to ask if they could just turn down the music and was met with a front desk lobby clerk sipping a beer and responded " what do you want me to do about it". Overall great vacation and again a HUGE shoutout to SUPER WALDO!!! You can find his music on Spotify as "Young W RD" Help a great guy get recognized!!

Hotel's Favourite
We are currently in the last couple days of a vacation and have enjoyed the resort greatly. The beach has a good swimming area with a sandy bottom. There is some sea grass, but that should be expected at this time of year. If you walk north west about 300 metres, there’s a very nice snorkeling spot in front of the Gran Ventana resort. The food is very fresh (especially the fruit) with mostly traditional Dominican options. If you feel you need to have more traditional North American options, there is a pasta bar and usually pizza available. The pools are clean and uncrowded. The rooms are a little dated, but spacious. If you are looking for top shelf booze, you will have to pay, but if you’re not picky, the local rum and beer options are fine. The best part of the resort is the people. The staff are amazingly and genuinely warm people. If you are looking for a quiet getaway I would recommend this place. If you’re looking for a high end, highly refined experience, you may want to look for more expensive option. When it comes down to value for money, it will be difficult to beat Blue Bay.

Pretty much agree with everything previously said. Nice hotel, good beach and pools. Loved the food especially the Mexican and Dominican buffet theme nights. Made do with the local beer and rum which was fine. What really makes this place is the staff. We were there during hurricane Fiona and they did have to shut it down. They were so professional and considerate of all the guests safety. We never felt in danger. Special thanks to senor LeBron at the lobby bar. Great bartender. Only knock, and it's a minor one, the ancient lobby bar tvs are basically unwatchable lol. Time for some new ones. Again, thanks for an amazing vacation

We had an amazing time at BlueBay Villas Doradas. The entertainment team is one of a kind. So much energy, very funny, makes sure youre not bored. Our top pick from the entertainment team is for sure Waldo and Edwin. Waldo is so funny, he makes you laugh all the time, his energy during activities is one of the kind. Edwin always made sure to propose new and fun activities. He took us on an awesome bike ride out of the ressort. He showed us the mall and answered any questions we had about the towns history. It was awesome and we very much appreciated it. During our stay a special guest that was supposed to perform couldn't show up. The entertainment team was so quick to come with an alternative that was so much fun and amusing. Special thanks to Julio as well for staying 2 hours with us translating the monopoly game hahah. And to Zahira Sosa for amazing in dining experience. As to the beach and the rooms they need a little bit of love but who would want to stay in their rooms when there is an entertainment team out of this world. Thank you for making our stay memorable.

In May I had a wonderful stay for +/- 2 weeks there. I really had such a healing stay at this place with a lot of beautiful memories in my heart! +Beautiful and clean beach +Big selection of food +Very friendly personal +Beautiful hotel architecture +Very cool swim-up bar +Had a beautiful rooom with balcony and fountain view +Lovely animateurs that do their job with a lot of heart (greetings to Jenny and Alfredo) +The souvenir shop is owned by a very kind family with everything you could need (don't need to go outside) +room was cleaned very well and the cleaners even made towel swans!! +extremely friendly staff +a lot of cool drinks to try +and so much more I could write here... Now to improvement ideas and things, people from first-world countries should consider: -the food in the evening restaurants (chinese and near the sea) were sometimes too salty or sugary -don't buy from the beach vendors (except for the awesome pedicure I got) and go to the hotel souvenir shop instead -the beach vendors were very annoying and I started to ignore them, because the same people came every day to sell their stuff -be careful of the man on the beach (César) that is probably a fraudster and "sells" adventure travels -on the weekends it can get very loud and crowded, because the locals come for the weekend -the hotel room doors could be sealed against flooding and noisy closing

I recently stayed at BlueBay, and I had a wonderful time! The buffet was fresh every day, the a la carte restaurants had reservations available every night, and the food was terrific! Try the grilled lobster or t-bone steak if you have a chance. Andy's Spa was outstanding!! The entire staff was friendly, and the prices were affordable. Full body massage and facial one day and I went back for seconds the next day! I would defiantly return. Thank you, everyone, for making my stay memorable!
