We are going to throw caution to the wind and book Ocean Blue/Sand for March 17-22. I have been reading these postings and updates for hours a night. (thanks Sherryl and all the others for your useful info and pictures!!) In the end I think a bad day in Punta Cana is better than a good day in NJ. Everyone says the food, pool, and beach are great, and i can live with that. If everything is open by then, great! (Im running out of energy to obsess!) But should they not be, I know people have upgraded their trips due to lack of other services. So do i book the extra to be sure, or hope the bowling alley isnt open yet, and i can upgrade to Junior Deluxe? A massage a day would be awful nice! Any suggestions for those more travel experienced? Anyone else headed down there that week?
