Expat Reviews

Dragon Bay is a great complex to live in.
The restaurants at the beginning of the complex are very convenient and the ice is great in the winter. There is a lot of outdoor area to walk on with about 7 different playgrounds on the grounds. There is an indoor and outdoor pool. The closest grocery store is in the next complex at Yosemite. You can put money on your gas card at Yosemite too.
Let me say that not all units are created equally. The few that I have been in have been nicely finished with hard wood and nice tile. The one that we moved into is not finished as nicely as others. The steps are metal and the appliances are a bit old.
The good part about it is that we have a very nice landlord who is quite open to doing some improvements. We have had the stove, the washing machine and dryer and the dishwasher replaced/repaired.

When something needs to be fixed, the management company is quick to do so. Although, nobody speaks English in the office, so that makes it a bit hard to communicate.

It is located right by ISB and BSB. Close to Europlaza and Pinnacle Plaza.

Overall I would recommend DB.

Dragon Bay is a nice area with a reasonable community vibe. Like other places, the villas vary considerably in decor, so choose wisely. The management is pretty responsive with repairs, etc. and the workers seem to know what they're doing. There are some moisture problems in the basements, but nothing like the flooding at Yosemite. It's convenient having restaurants and a spa at the edge of the neighborhood, but the closing of April Gourmet (the only place to buy milk, eggs, etc. nearby) is a real loss.
