     I was starting to sweat reading this over here! Thank goodness! I was wondering why they would have renovations at their busiest time of year! That made no sense to me!

     

    I am getting married in January and now I am not freaking out as much. Thanks for checking on that Alicia. :-)

    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

       Let know what you find out. I will talk to my TA as well.

       

      Oh and FYI ladies - if you did not get approval to bring an outside photgrapher onto the resort in 2013, you will not be able to. Be sure to bring this up to the wedding coordinator!!! I fortunately got Yinette to agree to let me bring my photgrapher on the resort for $50.

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

        Ladies,

         

        I asked my TA if she had heard anything about renovations at Ocean Blue. She got in touch with the Transat group coordinator who let her know that they have not be notified of any future renovations. Here is what else she wrote:

         

        The hotel does have to disclose any major work that would affect guests. There is always work going on at hotels to some degree but if its big like the pools or public areas then do have to disclose this information to you if it affects your travel dates as per TICO regulations. http://www.tico.ca/i...quirements.html

         

        Let's hope things don't change and negatively affect any of our future weddings. :)

              I have emailed the hotel a couple of times for wedding packages and add ons but have got no response. Maybe I am not emailing the right address. Could anyone help me out? Please and thanks.

              Hi JoyA- are you using bodas.hobs@oceanhotels.net?

               

              I believe that's the best way to reach Ada and Yinette. I know the wedding department's email was down recently but I believe they confirmed it was up and running so they may just be a little backed up.
