It was clean, service was good, food was fine, good selection, the usual at an all inclusive. The airport arrival was good, no problems, found our bus easy...quick ride, yay! We had a problem upon arrival at the hotel, ours...

We stayed at BlueBay Villas Doradas in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic from February 24 - March 3, 2013. We found the entire experience to be lackluster at best. As you are driving from the airport, only about a 15 minute drive, you will turn into a complex which houses some resorts. It was okay as far as complexes go. The...
