We booked a room on the pool side and were really pleased with it. The restaurant choices are excellent for dinner, and the main buffet is quite good for breakfast and lunch. Please note that if you like wine with your dinner you might want to be prepared to pay extra, as the included wines were definitely under par. You...

Booked trip with Air Canada Vacations. Flight was good. Paid $50 extra for the bigger seats and that made it so much more comfortable. Lots of representatives at the airport to direct us to our shuttle which was included in the package. Arrived on an earlier flight so we had to leave the luggage in the lobby. Wasn't too comfortable...

This is a late review but I thought I would write it now having been one year later, although staying at another resort. Only because I like to try new resorts, I should have returned here. We loved this resort. It is a smaller resort but I think that's the charm. No issues with the room. Always a lounger to...

My husband and I visited the Ocean Blue 10 years ago and everything was still as wonderful as we remembered. The accommodations were excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful. Juan at the Pelicans Water Sports area was awesome!! Jose (our server in the Tortuga restaurant every morning) was particularly charming-we are now part of his family! We are...

Staff is wonderful and very helpful. Grounds were veery well kept. Beware of vendors, they are aggressive to sell and don't take no for an answer. I...

Really liked the design of having the beach at one end, the pools in the middle and the restaurant/dining hall at the other end. Rooms were clean and comfy. The food was excellent with enough varieties to satisfied most of the guests. Didn't try all the restaurant mainly because of the awkward system in use were you have to be...

Booked it for a family trip after a friend had recommended it to us. Rooms were clean and confortable, food was good too, buildings, pools and garden area were well maintained. The 2 things i hated was 1) H10 premium sellers are EVERYWHERE on the resort specially at the entrance of the buffet. They are really annoying and they all...

Wonderful Visit. Had the best time with my best friend. Pools and grounds kept up very nicely. Staff is so kind and sweet. Entertainment Crew provided fun activities for all ages. Superman and Chocolate Juan had us laughing, exercising or dancing the entire visit. !!!!! Hope we can come back next year.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a family trip and had a blast! My favorite part was that the beach was just steps away from the hotel room. No frills room but very accommodating staff and great atmosphere.
