Restaurant, snack bar on beach and one specialty restaurant per evening. Food terrible; pools clean. - website stated free internet in lobby; we were informed NO Way, pay only...

Our family of four spent Thanksgiving at Blue Bay. We are ages 25-64yrs and all had a good time. We felt it was good for the price and encourage others to not put much weight on the 1 & 2 star reviews. Grounds & Location- The grounds are well-maintained, beautiful fauna, easy to get around. We enjoyed being in the...

Wasn't what we were expecting. Went with a friend and we we're looking forward to meeting some fun people, enjoying the pools and beach, and generally just experiencing a new country and climate. We left 2 days before our reservation expired. We toughed it out for the first two days of complete silence and food we couldn't stomach. The food...

Our third trip, but first time in November (usually March). Hotel was as expected. Food is reliable if not spectacular. Restaurant staff, bar staff, cleaning staff and entertainment crew are great. Don't know why the front desk staff are not friendlier. They get the job done, but could have a more positive attitude. Hotel and the general area had power...

We booked Bluebay Villas on a last minute deal, just 2 weeks before departure, on impulse. When we got home from the agents we logged on to TripAdvisor and was concerned to see some of the poor write ups. But, taking heart from the positive comments and knowing how opinions can vary, we decided to make our own minds up....

On our 1st day of arrival we had a torrential rain and had to wait in the reception for at least 1 long hour with no assistance at all from the porter to take our luggage to the bedroom, so we had to walk literally under the rain and get ourselves the suitcases. Once we got to the room we...

Stay away from this resort. Our room was burgled the first night we stayed here on our honeymoon, no broken window or forced entry into a locked room while we were at dinner, so obviously a key card was used, and $450 US was stolen. We were planning on getting the safe and making reservations, etc, the next morning, unfortunately....
