Blue Bay Villas Doradas Review

The stunning grand entrance (a Sara Garcia design) flanked by slender white pillars leads to the attractive lobby at this adults-only resort that offers an upscale atmosphere and a wide variety of lower-key activities than you find at the typical all-inclusive. The exuberant management leads the way to an admirable display of abundance, including all the à la carte Asian and seafood restaurants as well as the international buffet, from raw oysters to a real turkey dinner. Fitness classes include aqua aerobics by a certified instructor, with live music (a sax and a trumpet) three times a week. Learning-oriented activities are the norm here, be they Spanish classes, cooking and cocktail classes, even casino gambling instructions. Upgrade your room if you can afford it; the bungalows with private Jacuzzis are the best.
