Review From a Very Happy Member

Julie,
I wanted to tell you how much we are looking forward to going back to
Ocean Manor Resort next April.
We have a rule of sorts that we do not go back to the same country,
let alone resort, because with our time share our goal is to travel to
as many countries, US States and resorts as possible.
So far our 16 year old twins boys have been to 26 states and 6
countries.  Our trip back to Ocean Manor is worth breaking the rule
because we enjoyed our time there so much.
Our boys, who were 14 at the time, felt safe and right at home.  So
much so that they gave us permission to go to town for lunch one day.
The staff was friendly, the place impeccably clean, the food was good
and it is such a great location to Caberete.  I would recommend as
good as your food is, guests should venture into town and enjoy lunch
or dinner on the beach watching the sin set.
Anna, or Anna Banana, as the boys called her,  kept us busy with some
great tours and excursions.  San Juan, the purveyor of all local goods
and trinkets,  went and found me some wonderful Dominican cigars to
bring home that I can't buy here in the states.  I have friends giving
me orders on what they want me to bring back.  We are still making
Mama Juana as gifts for a friends each Christmas.  I need to restock
up on the herbs.
Don't even get me started on the jewelry my wife picked out, and his
prices were better than in town.
We also have a warm spot in our hearts for Rosa, who spent countless
hours braiding Bettina's hair and chatting with me and the boys.  We
still keep in touch on Facebook and already let her know we are coming
back.
Thank you for putting such a great team in place and creating an
resort worth going back to.
Warmest regards,
Mark

Travel Tip Of The Day

Travel Tip 

When traveling, use a small bag/purse when going out. It will be easier to carry around than a big one, and you can move more swiftly, another it be to get away from a mugger or to hurry to a sale.

Honeymooner's Romantic Walk From Ocean Manor to Cabarete Beach's


How Perfect is This Picture!

Honeymooners talking a Romantic Walk from Ocean Manor Resort to the Cabarete Beach's.
Its looks so Peaceful they are the only one there!
They Posted this Picture on TripAdviser.



"Lack in size made up for with HEART"

4 of 5 stars


 This place was GREAT!! We absolutely had a blast. The food on the dinner menu was delicious. We never ate the same thing twice and enjoyed every dinner. The breakfast was just ok, but it was sufficient for filling the belly for the morning. The service was friendly, outstanding and personal (which is more than I can say for Iberostar Costa Dorada). The bartenders and servers knew what we liked and went out of their way to be a local friend.
Leo, Rodi, and Fabio are great! They are a blast and they are extremely helpful.
We were on our honeymoon and are not "lay on the beach/ by the pool” kind of people. We went to a different excursion everyday, but coming back to Ocean Manor was like coming "home" everyday.
The front desk is a little disappointing when looking for advice, cab fares, local tips, but Leo, Rodi, Fabio and other guests are more than helpful.
Our room was gorgeous, and although the a/c was in the living room, we were comfortable at night.
The walk to Cabarete is a bit of a hike, but it is mostly pretty, and it was safe along the beach. Parts of the beach were dirty, but not near the resort. We walked from the resort, had lunch in Cabarete, did some shopping, and walked back. It made for a lot of walking, but if you don’t mind a little exercise, the walk is flat and enjoyable.
**Caution** the 'courtesy' driver is a time share pitch man offering a day at the 'sister resort' & the front desk 'help' must be working for the cab drivers b/c we got overcharged until we talked to other guests.
We loved spending our honeymoon at Ocean Manor!
