We enjoyed our stay despite having to change rooms 3 times. The first room reeked of cigarettes, the second had woodpeckers (I kid you not) living on the roof who woke us up at dawn. The third room was finally a charm. The beach is nice although I prefer the Caribbean side of the island and there are several nice...

This was our second trip to Blue Bay, and we will definitely be returning, hopefully for 2 weeks (met a German couple who were there 5 weeks- very jealous!). There was so much right about the resort, and the price is certainly right. We went for the gold deluxe package, and for the marginal cost there are so many advantages-...

If you want 5 star, you have to pay for it. This trip we decided not to pay for it, but we still had a great time. This place is average. The place is clean with a very short 2 minute walk down a pat to the beach. The beach bar is open 24 hours with both food and drinks....

I had purchased a Groupon for a few days in Oct. 2011 at BlueBay Villas Doradas. When I arrived at the resort, they tried to say that the Groupon thing had fallen through and they wouldn't honor the Groupon. Then I whipped out the many emails I had from corresponding with a member of their staff that contradicted what they...

We booked Blue Bay Villas as a special treat for my 60th birthday. The place looked good in the brochure, didn't have children and was recommended by the Thomson's rep in our local shop as her father had had a wonderful time there. We went mid October 2012. The flight from Manchester was perfect, we had upgraded to better seats...

My boyfriend and I (both 20) stayed here from 6th to 20th December. We arrived at around 7/7.30pm after a long day of traveling with a delayed plane. But that wasn't a problem for the staff! They welcomed us with smiles, a nice cold refreshing drink and a cold towel. We checked in and headed up to our room. We...
