We are currently in the last couple days of a vacation and have enjoyed the resort greatly. The beach has a good swimming area with a sandy bottom. There is some sea grass, but that should be expected at this time of year. If you walk north west about 300 metres, there’s a very nice snorkeling spot in front of the Gran Ventana resort.
The food is very fresh (especially the fruit) with mostly traditional Dominican options. If you feel you need to have more traditional North American options, there is a pasta bar and usually pizza available.
The pools are clean and uncrowded. The rooms are a little dated, but spacious. If you are looking for top shelf booze, you will have to pay, but if you’re not picky, the local rum and beer options are fine.
The best part of the resort is the people. The staff are amazingly and genuinely warm people.
If you are looking for a quiet getaway I would recommend this place. If you’re looking for a high end, highly refined experience, you may want to look for more expensive option. When it comes down to value for money, it will be difficult to beat Blue Bay.

We spent one week at this adult only resort. A reminder that this is not an all-inclusive resort. You get 2 small cans of beer in the mini bar for the whole week. We were supposed to have also a big bottle of water per day. We did not get anything the last 2 days. You have to pay for the safe, wifi if not included in your package, etc…
We had a superior room and I recommend it, comfortable bed, big closet, large balcony. If it was not for the condo built between the hotel and the seafront, we would have had a wonderful ocean view. Too bad.
Food is just average. The buffet is OK but the “steak house” is bad. I think it is the way they prepare the meat. It looses all the texture and the taste. Everything, especially the fish, is very very salty.
Be prepared to be approached by 10-12 vendors on the beach every day. We were also approached by a few people for the Circle One. We just said “no” and it was fine. I doubt that it is worth.
It is true that the resort is occupied with local people on the week-end and it can be noisy. It did not bother us maybe because our room was located far from the pool and bar, in the spa area which I really recommend. It is a very relaxing area, less people and a nice small pool.
The beach has golden sands and it is usually very windy in the afternoon. Enough palapas but it can be another story if the hotel is full.
Overall, the resort is well maintained and cleaned. The staff is very nice and helpful.
