    OCEAN HOTELS - by H10 and Hodelpa Hotels & Resorts is their website

    I chose it for a number of considerations. First we narrowed down our country to the Dominican, then area (PC), then we looked at the resorts in that area. We chose Ocean because 1. it is fairly new (2005), 2. the price was reasonable for our guests 3. I had heard good reviews of the resort and specifically weddings there. That helped clinch it for me.

    Hubby doesn't care... he just needs to know where to show up, LOL

        It looks really nice!! I totally know what you mean about where to show up. Joe's attitude is "as long as there is a beach, you and me, we're covered" funny!

        So I think we're finally 99% decided on a resort - Gran Bahia. I think we just need to book and get it over with

          Yes, we chose it for the exact reasons as Deb listed. Also, I liked it cuz it was big enough for our 60 guests but not too big where it everyone can't find each other either.

          In all honesty after 3 months of researching, starting in Mexico and ending up in DR . OB was the most reasonable price & had it all from good food, to updated look, to big beach, great activities and lots of bars/restaurants to choose from. But the best was the price point - we started looking at resorts $2800 per person and now our guests are only going to be paying $1275. Very happy I was.

          My TA just got back from Ocean Blue and she raved about it. She said it was so much better than she ever imagined.

          Good luck TVT with your choice and planning.
          Cheers,

            Could you post some of the info about the Ocean Blue. My TA recommended it as well but I have not been able to find any information!

              The best place to get info for Ocean sands/blue I found, was travel advisor, lots of reviews and pictures and you can do the virtual tour. This is where I tell all of my guests, for our wedding, to look. Google the resort and then look for the travel advisor web site.

                By the way I am also getting married at the ocean Sand, on Aug 14th of this year. I am thrilled with my choice of resort, Julissa the wc at the resort has been wonderful, she responds back to my questions within a few hours. She has put me at ease and made me feel that this will be the wedding I envision. I don't feel like I will have any unpleasant surprises, Julissa, and all the brides who have posted about this resort on other forums, have convinced me that I have made the right choice.

                    I am just getting started, thinking of having out wedding in Punta Cana.. Edyta, I tried to view images but was having trouble, maybe because I have a mac. Do you have images elsewhere? Your signature pic looks amazing, I'd love to see the rest.
