oh very sorry to tell you but 13 of us all family went to this same resort in october and i hated it most of the group said they would never go back an- i felt trapped and it was really expensive - given that your hotel is 2 doors down from ours on the beach and it might be better and your all inclusive food and drink may be a better standard than ours - entertainment was the same rubbish every night my only escape was the casino in our hotel - best days we had were the days we had trips enjoyed the boats trips and monster trucks and sea world - it was very boring around the hotel and resort only has a few tiny shops and 2 pubs - i guess it depends on what you want out of the holiday personally i wouldnt go back

just take load of stuff for kids but not sweets, ladys like sanitary stuff, toothpaste and toothbrushes go down well with the kids also clothes
it was a eye opener for us we was shocked but we had a great time we was there last year when hurricane ike came close. we stayed at porta plata but not same hotel as you (werent as lucky it looks lovely)

we felt rich over there to and it was first time we had gone all inclusive and was we scared that we wouldnt eat the food but yes it was different to what we was used to (was not expecting much english food neither did we want it) but we didnt go hungry any time and we had plenty to drink some would say we drank and eat our moneys worth lol
we did not spend much money even though i took loads just incase and we went on a few trips

I have been to Dominican Republic 5 times and stayed at the Victoria in Playa Dorada, love the place!

Def get out on some trips to see the real dominican, its a real eye opener, take some stationary / calculators / toys with you to give to the children, please do not take sweets, it is a nice idea and the kids love them but they have problems with the dental side of things there.

Also the Blue Bay is part of the Blue bay resorts in mexico etc and they are well known as swingers hotels, we have friends who didn't know this and stayed there, they said the hotel is really nice (beds -not just sunbeds on the beach) a little too friendly for them but they said if your not looking for that type of holiday its still fine, but if you are................its the place to be!

Have a fantastic time and like people say, take lots of $1 & $5 for tips, its such a little to us but means so much to the Dominicans!

dom rep is really nice. stayed AI , met some lovely people had a right laugh. Shows were good where i stayed. As for the food there was a fried chicken / Pizzaplace on the resort, i lived off it as the food wasn't really for me.do the ours . horse riding was great laugh. also jungle tour .Also duty free is cheap, so get some booze on the way back. Remember getting this decanter type bottle of JD for £20 there , best looking bottle i have ever bought, and was well cheap for that size of bottle.

how much did you spend mate?


First time i went i took £800 for two weeks, came back with over £600!

Normally i take about £400 ( might be more this year with the £ V $ rate!)

I always come back with money, there is not a lot to spend it on.

I reckon you could go with as little as £100 and that could be easily enough!

Just dont forget your airport tax on the way in and out!
