decent enough hotel

Pros: waiting staff and crew, eager to help and please.
Cons: room issues mentioned above.
Location: location is fine. there was a shopping plaza within the resort complex so that's always great.
for the money, not expecting a stay at the Ritz, but I was expecting a working mini-bar fridge, room turned over without having to call every day, and bathroom repairs completed before checking in. Also, for some reason we had neighbors that had problem with some playful chit-chat and even the TV on at regular volume and were constantly being "harrassed" about our noise-level that I considered to be in the normal range. Waiting staff was great, condition of pool and bars and eating halls were great, but just those room issues led us to be a little disappointed.

Shady practices!!!

Use somewhere else all inclusive means nothing and few of the staff had a good attitude. Would never use again varying rates on everything. Limit guest freedom too much!!! Felt like I was at an old folks retirement home. Beds hard as bricks!!

Excellent

It's our honeymoon, excellent place for romance and fun...the only downside of the place is that the same day or the next morning, they trying to sell your time share they don't understand the word NO. Wasted two hours there....that's the only downside but the rest 100% fun adventure & Romance 24hrs.

Girlfriend Gives it a 4 Star

Pros: Plenty of professional security; flashy modern look; late swimming; couples keep to themselves; affluent not local hangout; top entertainment
Cons: Taxi driver union runs the outside and it's very hard to get affordable service. Room requests can stay unresolved. Still a lot of vendors on beach.
Location: It's a safe tourist zone with a local shopping mall with a very affordable clothing store on the second floor. You can walk to the highway 4taxis.
It was a 3 Star the first time I came. The entrance and welcoming reception was always 4 Star. The many vendors keep their distance. I still had to insist for a few things. My phone never worked consistently. They changed the sheets whenever I asked. The waiters and motivators were more attentive. My girlfriend loved the quality of the food and detail of the grounds. I left for days and returned to find everything ok. It's like Vegas, everything costs you but at least you know you are in a quality place! Dismissal is super flexible!! A real disco would slam dunk it as a 4 star for me!!!

Beautiful resort but terrible food!!

BlueBay Villas Doradas is a beautiful resort and the staff is incredibly friendly. However, the food is overly seasoned and is terrible. I would only recommend this resort if you plan on starving all week. The pools also close early, which isn't convenient for the younger crowd. In addition, I would not consider this to be "all inclusive" because you can only eat at 2 of the 3 restaurants if you stay a week if they aren't all booked, which is very likely. The all inclusive bars also close early, but you can get drinks at one of the open bars for a price, which defeats the all inclusive purpose!!!

Relaxing with some drawbacks...

We were recieved with a timeshare promotion. That was so rude to sell us on my time without a freebie. You will relax after that. Not many free services like wifi, safes, and airport shuttle. Food was great! Staff was like family. Vendors were major drawback, pressuring even the nude bathers. Rooms are quiet & comfy.
