Ocean Blue by H10 - Punta Cana, DR - Client Review

Ocean Blue by H10 - Punta Cana, Dominican Republic We just recently returned from our vacation in Punta Cana. We went last year for my husband’s 50th birthday and liked it so much decided to go back this year for my 50th birthday. We again stayed at Ocean Blue for 8 days. The staff made our stay especially enjoyable as they all do their best to make the guests comfortable. Our favorite drink was “Renaldo’s Special” (our favorite bartender at the swim-up bar – his own specialty drink). There are a wide variety of restaurants including Mexican, Italian, Dominican, steak house, and buffets. The buffet generally had a different main theme each night (Chinese, Mexican, Dominican, etc). My favorites were the Steak House and the Mexican. All the staff were quick to join the guests in a shot of Mamajuana upon request (the aphrodisiac drink of the island also known to have “healing powers”). Our room and housekeeping services were wonderful as well. The resort seems to go out of their way to keep the guests happy with the smallest of things. We asked for an extra blanket which we were given and then the next day apparently the whole complex had also gotten blankets. We went to the gift shop looking for sore throat lozengers and found only mint type chewables. The next day there were Halls cough drops on the shelve. This was, by far, the best vacation we have ever had and would recommend to our friends and family. Can’t wait to go back! from Lyn Midden

Iberostar Rose Hall Suites - Montego Bay, Jamaica -Client Review

Iberostar Rose Hall Suites
Our group of six had a FABULOUS vacation in Montego Bay at the Iberostar Suites Resort (March 8-12, 2011). The staff, food, accommodations, scenery and overall “relaxing” venue was a delight. The rooms were very clean (cleaned daily with turn down service) with coffee/tea, refrigerator stocked and beds very comfortable. Our check in and checkout went very easily. The Apple representative was available and accommodating. The restaurants were all very good but the buffet was exceptional, even if you ate there for all three meals. The staff and Star Friends made you feel like you were part of the family, not like you were an intrusion. This was quite refreshing and appreciated. from Darla Wertenberger Director, Community Outreach, St. Luke's Hospital
