Ocean Blue Resort

My husband and I will be arriving at the Ocean Blue Resort on March 21 for seven days. I would appreciate some feedback from anyone returning from now until the 21st. Pictures would be a plus. My email address is wendysuez@yahoo.com

Hi,

My husband and daughter will also be there during the same week! Do you any children?

As I've written on another thread...

I spoke to someone at Apple Vacations yesterday. They told me they weren't supposed to even speak to me (only to travel agents) but said that the property's "real" opening date is February 18th. By then (supposedly) things should be up and running and situated with everything the brochure advertises. Try to read the other threads on this forum, but only read the last couple of pages of each, as things have progressed.

I feel confident things will be okay by then (I hope)!

Hi Lisasharyn,

It will just be me and my husband, but what I've read from other postings there will probably be quite a few kids there.

I also spoke to a supervisor from Cheap Caribbean and she assured me that everything will be up and running by the time we arrive in March. One of their agents had just returned from the site and he said it was coming along. She said that the landscaping will not be plush because it is new. I can live with that. She also told me she would keep in touch with me about any changes. I asked her about changing to another resort and they are not moving anyone in March at this time. I'm just going to wait it out. I work in a Casino and I know when these places are first open there are alot of kinks to work out.

A co-worker just returned from Punta Cana a couple of weeks ago and he didn't hear anything about the malaria scare. His brother just returned yesterday no problems.

Let me know if you hear any good news :)

I have spoken directly with Ocean Blue and have had numerous discussions with them via e-mail, they did Open on January 21 which is why some in this forum are reporting from their own trips and stay at the Ocean Blue. Get your Hepatitis A/B shots and not to worry so much about the Malaria, the resorts spray and it is no longer the rainy season, my Doctor told me at this point the medication would do more harm than good to my body........it is a preventative drug so very powerful, but again rainy season is over, no more standing water, bring mosquito repellent with deet if that will make you feel better. If you read some of these strings you will see that few even came in contact with a mosquito! Have a great vacation!

Thank you to everyone who is providing information as to what we will be missing while at the Ocean Blue/Sand...my husband and I are travelling Feb 22 , and were wondering what we have to look forward to. How are the amenities that ARE available, and what are they, how is the food, are drinks plentiful?? No offence, but I would rather know what I'm getting rather than what I'm not.

-cheers
