Ocean Mannor Resort

Hello...

I have plans to stay at the Ocean Mannor resort the week of July 4, 2007. After looking at reviews posted on the resort with mixed reviews i'm a little concerned as to what i might find when I get there. Also I see that the offer a meal plan is the plan worth getting or would I be better off without it? Also as a first timer to Cabarete what is a must see or do.

I greatly appreciate any help that you can provide me with.

Thanks

Olan - Returned May 22 after a week in Cabarete. We stayed at Ocean Manor and have not one complaint. We did not purchase the meal plan but ate in the resturant twice. Had absolutely the best thing to eat that I can remember. The shrimp crepe!! IT WAS GREAT! We also had the grouper with garlic sauce, A++ another had the seafood cerveche(sp), A+. Really we enjoyed both meals. At the bar at happy hour we had several Capirinas(sp) I know the spelling is not even close but just ask Phillippee and he'll know what you're talking about.

As far as must do's....we really enjoyed going into Cabarete in the evenings for dinner. We only did it twice but really I think all of us wish we had done it every night.

Don't go to Sousa beach on Sunday, very crowded. Cabarete beach is very nice in that if you are like me pretty much the only time I get in the water is to cool off. So you have the kite surfers to watch while not reading or people watching.

We rented a car. It worked out fine for us but you need to be, at the same time, a very offensive driver while being a very defensive driver. If you not on the offense you're never going to get anywhere but if you're not on the defense you're liable to kill someone.

Went to the casino just a couple of minutes away from Ocean Manor, can't remember the name. A couple of us had a little luck, free drinks though which makes the "donations" a little easier to take.

I will try to answer any questions you might have.

UsaDog - Thanks I appreciate the feedback after hearing all the mixed reviews I was a little worried about what I might have found. As for driving I know what you mean, I have driven in some of the worst citites in the U.S.; New York City, Los Angeles, New orleans, etc. Thanks also for the tip about Sousa, although Cabarete beach will probable be no better, I found out there having an Int'l kite boarding competition that weekend. I'll let you know how it goes when I get back.

Again thanks for your help.

Hello ! I have just my business right over in front of this hotel, its a VERY,VERY GOOD HOTEL,

Food will be very good, but you have to try some other restaurants in Cabarete , so difficult to say if with or without the food, If you choose without ,you will have the possibility to try the different specialities of the area.

William.
