2nd time at Ocean Blue and we have been really disappointed. Whilst the overall resort is still good, changes made since our last visit have marred our stay. Unless you are privilege guests you can't get in to any of the speciality restaurants (we only managed to get in to the Italian and steak house because we complained loudly) and...

Stayed in May 2016, traumatized by roaches in the bureau, fridge, and the cabinets. Heard many other people complaining and asking for room changes also, but were told there were no other rooms available. Extermination service was the second day of our one week stay, but it did not help at all. Bugs were even on the bathroom vanity counter,...

I stayed at this resort for my wedding with 75 family members in attendance. Nothing but positive feedback! Planning my wedding with the resort coordinator was not so fun because they don't go out of their way to make it special so all efforts needed to be on my part. The administration team that handles weddings need some help since...

We LOVED the pools--very large and easy to access, with swim-up bars and plenty of lounge chairs. We appreciated the attentiveness of bar tenders when they weren't busy and understood that there were times when they were too busy for attentiveness. The quarters were immaculate, with decent showers, reading lights, and beds. However we were disappointed in the food and...
