Hi Redken1...Happy Birthday and congrats on such a fun time and great present!

My favorite place is SUNscape Casa Del Mar! It is in LaRomana! one of the reasons is the SPA!!!

Just copy and paste these links to explore the possibilities!

here is a place to check out both SUNscapes in the DR:


I will be including my links to SUNScape Casa Del Mar at the end...but here is a link to some photoshows my friend Connie took while she was recently at SUNscape The Beach in Punta Cana:


Here are mine now that will show you why I lovingly refer to CDM as Casa Del Marvelous:


virtual tour of CDM.


Above is a link to the AMresorts board about SUNscape Resorts, a lot of great info there on Casa Del Mar.


above you will find a color map of cdm


the above link will take you to my photoshows . Click on any picture and it will load and play. Each pic is a show on it's own. There is navagation on the left of the page so you can see all of the shows.


The above link will take you to the resort map of Casa Del Mar. One of the things I liked was the layout, everything was so convenient. There is walking but not a lot, it is a very intimate resort.


above link is for the resort newspaper the Sundial. They deliver it to your room in the evening and it gives the info of the next days activities.


this link is for the apple resorts trips that are available.


above is a link to my blog, all about Casa Del Mar, complete with pictures and links and lots of fun stuff.

all the best,

I agree Ocean Blue was nice and it beats a retirement old age place.

Happy Birthday

Hi reken! I wish you a very happy 50th birthday!!

I would suggest either Sunscape the Beach or Ocean Blue! I have been to both and love them!!! I also enjoy Sunscape Casa del Mar in La Romana!

STB is very, very classy!! The lobby alone will have you in awe!! It's a two-storied marbled palace! You are greeted with a yummy drink and warm cookies! The lazy-river style pool runs from the lobby all the way to the beach!! We had a "swim-out room" and it was only five steps from our patio on the first floor to the pool! The animation team is fun and you would love them! The disco is lively and what fun it is to mix with the dancer's! It also has a casino!

Ocean Blue has is lovely also!! Their lobby is quite unique and the registration sub-lobby is air-conditoned! You are greeted with their signature drink.........the Ocean Blue! It has two wonderful pools, and a gorgeous beach!! Their animation team keeps you laughing all day and night!! They insist that you learn to dance! Crazy David will have you in tears with his antics!! Great food too!! The tram will carry you to and from if you're too tired to walk! Their disco is energetic and has a sunken dance floor and bench-type swings!! It has a casino, bowling alley and billiards too!

Sunscape Casa del Mar is a little more laid-back but is still very, very nice. The beach is just beautiful with calm, tranquil, blue waters. The entertainment team is terrific and you just have to meet Pablo!!! He will have you "rolling on the ground laughing" with his zany antics. Good food, nice disco, two fabulous spas! Great shows!! Great fun!!

I hope that you give these three resorts your careful consideration! If you have any questions regarding them, please write to me at: loveallinclusives@hotmail.com I will be happy to try to answer them!!! Have a wonderful time!! You deserve it!!!!! Best wishes!!
