About three years ago my late husband and I took a trip to the Dominican Republic. We stayed at the Bellevue Dominican Bay All-inclusive. https://www.expedia.com/Santo-Domingo-Hotels-BelleVue-Dominican-Bay-All-Inclusive.h1106356.Hotel-Information
We were a little surprised because when we got there the rooms were nothing like the pictures. The pictures they show you are for the time-share guests. Our room was fine but the television didn’t work and the only drinking water was on the first floor, that is if you had bottles to put it in. Otherwise you were stuck with little plastic cups.
We had a wonderful time but it definitely was not a ritzy place, nor was it Americanized at all. I would definitely go back to Boca Chica!
