    OK so I’m back from my trip. I was actually staying at the MeliaCaribe Resort because my best friend was getting married there. However I took the opportunity to go to Ocean Blue and Sand since that's where I'm getting married in February with God willing. Ok so here it goes the good and the bad,

     

    1. I actually really liked the hotel. My fiancé actually liked MeliaCaribe a little better only because Melia is a more luxurious resort BUT Ocean Blue is more family oriented resort. Plus is a smaller hotel considering that it only has about 700rooms. SO it’s perfect for us.

     

    2. I had a meeting schedule with my WC which when I arrived at the hotel was told that she has left, which didn't make sense to me since we were schedule for a meeting. well I found out that it was her last day there and that ADA would be my new coordinator however just to let you ladies know Ada is pregnant and is due in November so the WC for the day of my wedding is still unknown. .

     

    I thought I had attached the ocean blue pictures on my USB but I didn’t. But I promise when I get home I will post the pictures.

     

    I hope this helps a little if anyone has any questions please let me know.

      Dear Ambeato!

       

      Thank you so much for great review of Ocean Blue and Sand!  I am getting married there on Nov 27th.  Had so many problems with WC so far every time new person replies to my e-mail ( 2 weeks later! ) Please e-mail any photos you have at Natalia.k.ny@gmail.com

      Did you like the restaurant?  How is the photographer?  It's so wonderful you got a chance to go there and see the hotel!!!

       

      Best of luck in planning and my best wishes !!!

       

      Natalia

        Hi Ambeato,

         

        Thanks for the info and about Ada being pregnant and due in November. That is disappointing as she has been great with me and answers my questions usually within the day. If anyone hears who the new co-ordinator is please post it here. I'm hoping they will inform us but you never know.

         

        Can't wait to see your pictures.

          For any of the brides out there that were married @ Ocean -- did you book your trip with the honeymoon suite or did you ask for an upgrade when you got there? What are the odds that they won't upgrade you if you're getting married there? I don't think it's as busy for wedding as some of the other popular hotels like Excellence so I would think that the suite upgrade should be available??

           

          What do you think?

            We booked the honeymoon suite as we will be there during March break and expect it will be busy. We didn't want to take any chances of not being upgraded. Our rate is $1980 + 230 taxes= $2210 each. We figure this is our wedding week and we should be spoiled.

              I definately recommend booking right away. There are only 24 honeymoon suites (I think?) on the whole resort on the Blue and Sand sides. They were completely full when we were there, and there were a few brides that were dissapointed they werent getting a suite, because they had waited.

               

              Remember, for people like DH and I, we were there for 2 weeks, so we hogged the suite the whole time

                Approx. how much more is the honeymoon suite then the standard Junior Suite?  We are getting married at the Ocean Blue in Jan, 2011.  Thinking of booking the honeymoon suite before we go but haven't talked to our travel agent about it just yet,

                  When we had our wedding in '08, the honeymoon suite was cheaper than the junior suite. I would check with your TA to confirm if this is still the case.

                      Hi Tracey,

                       

                      When in March did you book? Maybe we'll be there at the same time. We will be there from March 12-19th.
