My friends and I bought this all-inclusive deal about 2 years ago (April 2018- was not an option in drop down) and wow was it a great deal for the money! 4 nights for airfare, hotel and all food & drinks (even alcoholic) for under $700!! The swim up bar was our favorite part and though buffets can sometimes be disappointing we thought theirs was pretty delicious with diverse options. We also got talked into a super fun photo shoot by the onsite photographer and were really pleased with the picture quality. All in all a great value for the price!

We returned to Villas Doradas on 9 March for a one week vacation. We were assigned a quiet 3rd floor room as requested, near the small pool. Everything in the room worked as expected but sometimes at peak times there was no hot water and low water pressure. The bathroom needed attention; the towel bars had been torn off the wall at some point and not been properly reattached. The base of the shower needed to be replaced. The lack of a fan in the bathroom meant excessive moisture in the room. There was a comfortable king bed, small fridge, complimentary safe and complimentary WIFI (both with Air Canada ) and fairly good TV channel selection. Cleaning staff did a good job in the room and for the entire resort. The closet was great but more shelf space in the room would be wonderful! As returning patrons we had stayed in better rooms and were disappointed with this one. We spent most of our time at the beautiful beach and enjoyed good weather. We always found beach chairs, but they were in short supply on the busiest days. The resort has added many new sun beds on the beach. You can enjoy long beach walks to the left. A storm the day before we arrived caused weeds to wash up but the crews worked hard to stay ahead of it. We bought something from the vendors but just say a polite "no thank you" if not interested. Food was good at buffet, perhaps not quite as good as in the past but still good. Bacon available every morning, steak and seafood cooked to your preference, good selection of fruits (sweet and delicious), vegetables and breads and the dishes are varied. Antonio, Nilson and Elvin frequently served us. They remembered us from past visits and were very friendly and efficient. They (as well as other servers) are a real asset and we always look forward to seeing them. At peak times there could have been more staff. We enjoyed the Asian Fusion restaurant; good food and excellent service. A few days we enjoyed fried chicken at the beach snack bar. There is good shopping at a small mall less than just a 10 minute walk down the street to the right. We like the Dominican coffee and vanilla. The resort needs to control the number of water fowl living in the pond area. The smell was terrible as you walked through the area! Some walkways need to be re-leveled to help older folks get around. We like the smaller size and friendly atmosphere and always enjoy our time here.

Spent a week here and it was great! Food was wonderful wherever we ate. The service was top notch and even though the rooms were not pristine and super modern we spent very little there so it didn’t matter! Angelina (my sister) was a server who stood out immediately! Santos at the beach bar was top notch!!! And Thomas, thank you for putting up with us on a few late nights and providing us with great food when we needed it the most! Miguel, you’re adorable. Thank you for making us always feel welcome and special. Willy, you made the best first impression, providing us with information and reassurance within the first hours of us being there. The management at this resort should be commended. Your employee’s represent you very well! We were there during a time that could have had a negative effect but the staff always made us feel well looked after! Thank you! My only recommendation would be to bring in more Dominican style bands (like the band that performed by the pool on Dominican night), they were great

Me and my boyfriend arrived feb 14 for 1 week. This is the best resort I’ve been to thus far- I usually go to 5 stars in Cuba. On arrival the front desk staff were awesome and very welcoming. We decided to upgrade our room to a superior room so we could be in a quieter area. The spa area is awesome and quiet so the upgrade was well worth it. Food: great! Bacon and eggs daily. They have peanut butter. Fresh fruit. Smoothie station. Really good cereal and granola. They have a panini press too so my boyfriend made breakfast sandwiches a few times. Dinner and lunch are good too. Alvin was usually our server and was always smiling and social! Hector who made our eggs everyday was very efficient and a friendly guy. Grounds: very well kept! I liked the set up of the pools- one is social, one for sports, one for relaxing. Flowers and the little creek area were very nice. Rooms: nice! The downside was that the maids didn’t get to our room to clean it until like 3 or 4pm. Two times we were napping when they came so we just ask for towels to be exchanged and they’d leave them on our door handle which was nice. Beach: didn’t spend much time here as the vendors were around all day, probably 1 every ten minutes. The beach was often very windy as well. Going on the morning was better as it was usually a bit calmer. Restaurants: they were ok. The food at the buffet was better. The fried chicken at the beach bar was soooo tasty! Entertainment: the animation team is seriously dedicated to everyone having a good time! There is a professional dance team that does some nights of entertainment and they are insane. They work really hard to master all their routines and it’s crazy to watch the non stop dancing! Bars: The beach bar was super fun at night. Pool bar was busy.... even when it wasn’t it took sometimes 15+ mins to get a drink. More staff needed here as we could only get drinks from here or the beach. There’s a paid bar in the lobby but they’ll give you beer for free. Bring bug spray for your legs at night! Lots of bugs at night on the little bridge to the beach. Overall this is a great resort. Lots of strangely terrible reviews on here... most of them are exaggerated. We were scared to go after reading them. Turns out this was one of the best experiences ive ever had at a resort. Would recommend :)

We aren't terribly fussy, but i must say, this resort was not impressive. Platinum room, no big deal. Buffet, no big deal, ala cartes, not worth it. Those beds at the pool, were a waste of space. And of course, typical greedy guests needed more than just the bed. No chairs available. Employees were a 5* , Pablo at the lobby bar, Veronica remembered names, and our maid was wonderful. Our welcome drink was a small glass of punch????? Sorry Blue Bay, not going to be a return customer. Love Dominican Republic.
