Oh no! Sorry for your change of venue! I'm sure Melia will be beautiful as well!

 

It's kind of scary though because I feel like renovations rarely run on time down there- I hope all is well by April!!

        I've left posts on the H10 Ocean - facebook page, as well as the Ocean Blue Brides - tagging Ada........asking them to confirm if this is happening and what the impact will be on travellers/wedding groups.

         

        If that doesn't work out - I totally think we should contact the resort for some answers....this is not the sort of thing you should find out after the fact :)

        You are so proactive!! I love it :)

         

        I'm not going to let it stress me out! We'll see what they say and I'm sure it will work out fine either way!

          I really wonder where the information came from now....I got a response from the Hotel on their facebook page....

           

          I wrote this: "I recently heard Ocean Blue&Sand will be undergoing renovations in 2013 (Jan-March).....is this true, and what impact will this have on vacationers/wedding groups?"

           

          And their reply was: Hello Alicia, thanks for your comments, right now there are no plans for any type of renovations at the hotel for 2013, and specially Jan-March which are our busiest months of the year.

           

          Hope this is the case :) Momentary panic has subsided! lol

          I was thinking that myself that it would be odd to do renovations during peak season!

           

          Glad to hear it shouldn't be a worry!!

            I found it out from my TA who found out from a bride that just came back from there.

              Thats so strange....the hotel responded on their facebook page saying there were no reno plans at all.....

              I'm still a little curious...may email the wedding coordinators as well....
