We should def get together for a drink!

 

And I didn't know about delta- will check that out for sure thanks!

 

Resturaunts-- let me try and remember... Route 66 was like typical diner food, italian was nice but i didn't really love my dish, and I compeltely forget what I had. Mexican was good. I think we ate there twice. I have to go through my pictures to see if I remember more from when I was there. We didn't eat at the dominican though I can't remember why.

La Casa de mi Abuela - Dominican. Didn't eat there. Open for dinner; reservations required.

 

Margarita - Mexican. We had a large group party there (about 40). Food was good, and the atmosphere was fun. Open for dinner; reservations required.

 

Italian restaurant (name is escaping me!) Food was okay...nothing too special. Our wine glasses were never empty, though, so that made for a fun dinner! Open for dinner; reservations required.

 

Mike's - coffee/pastries. Fantastic lattes and smoothies. Open from 10 am - midnight. (I was suprised it wasn't open earlier!)

 

Overtime - Hamburgers, wings, sandwich of the day, hot dog...all served with French fries. It's open late night, so we often hit it up after closing down the lobby bar/leaving the disco :) Food was not the greatest, but at that time of day, anything is okay! They were out of ketchup for several nights, but we really enjoyed the staff there, so it was worth it!

 

Route 66 - American. I didn't eat there, but people in my group did; they said the ribs were fabulous. Open for dinner; reservations required.

 

El Bodegon - steakhouse. Food was outstanding; I was completely full by the time I left. Plus, we got to sit outside, which was wonderful on the last night. Open for dinner; reservations required. (<--I believe this was the hardest place to get reservations for.)

 

Main buffet - Themed dinners each night (Chinese, Mexican, etc.) Breakfast included omelet stations, fruit, cereal, pastries, breakfast meats, juices, etc. Lunch had pizza, meats, burgers/hot dogs, fruits and veggies, pasta station, dessert etc. Dinners were themed (Chinese, Mexican, etc). Dinner was basically a larger version of lunch...and crepes made to order! I LOVED the buffet. The variety was great and most everything seemed to be high quality - they even had lobster one night. (I was expecting 'typical buffet' food, and it was much better than that.) Also, the bar at the buffet was one of our favorites - they mix a great drink, and the bartenders were really fun :)

 

La Brasa - our wedding reception was here and food was phenomenal. During the day, they are open for lunch food. Selection was pretty limited but it was right on the beach, so we ate there most days. There were burgers, pizza, pasta station, fruits, 'meal of the day', dessert, chips and guac.

 

Room service - free 10 am - 10 pm. Fairly limited selection (pizza, sandwiches, etc) but still decent.

 

Hope that helps! You'll never be hungry :)

Thank you so much for the details! Good to know the food is good there, I was worried about it.

When I went to PC last June, we went to the Grand Palladium and it was awful. We had about 15 people and everyone was sick from the food. I thought their food was so disgusting. And now after reading even recent reviews on Grand Palladium, there are still a ton of complaints. So this to me is AMAZING news to hear about Ocean Blue. My TA said it was really good food too.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=personalized necklace&amp;ref=sc_gallery-3-9&amp;plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
