How has the BP oil spill affected Caribbean (DR) beaches?

My Fiancee and I are hoping to spend our honeymoon in the Dominican Republic in late August. We're pretty much set to book, except we're a little bit concerned about the oil spill having affected the beaches around Cabarete etc. Any wisdom on this would be very much appreciated; the last thing we want to do is be confined to the pool all day due to globs of oil popping up on the beach.. Thanks!!

Due to how the currents are in the Caribbean the oil spill has had no effect on the beaches in the Dominican Republic the oil has been pushed up northwards towards the US coast.
