My boyfriend and I had an absolutely wonderful time at the blue bay. We specifically chose an adult only resort and were not disappointed. There are many couples there so if you are single and looking to mingle, you may not find it here. That's not to say that there aren't any singles just not a lot. The rooms were... More

what everyone says is pretty standard really but here goes, the rooms are poor there is no denying that , we were moved to one overlooking the Spa, but the workmanship is dire and there is no luxury at all. Having said that the cleaners do a good job and it was nice to have an iron and ironing board... More

Arrival April 12, 2009. We booked via GoTravelDirect and had a good flight down; a short 20 minute trip to the resort from the airport; fresh drinks awaiting, and a quick check in. I was not pleased about having to pay an extra $220 Cdn. on the way down and $36 US on the way back for luggage overage, but... More

My husband and I just came back from Blue Bay. We have to admit we were impressed by the resort, especially after reading all the negative comments. I'm just going to tell you about the major things you should know: RESORT: The resort was very clean and well kept. Our room was very spacious and clean as well. When we... More

TRANSFERS Transfers were quick and easy, with a smiling driver and a bubbly representative. We were also given ice cold bottles of water to drink on the bus, which was deffinitely welcomed! Just be aware of the baggage handlers in the white shirts offering to take your bags to the vehicle. You don't have far to take them and they... More

We just returned from a two week stay in this resort in april. The staff were friendly and the resort was very clean. However, having traveled to a number of All Inclusive Resorts in the Carribean as well as the Puerto Plata area this resort did not meet our expectations of a four star and we would rate it at...
