809 area code

I need to contact reservations at Ocean Blue and the area code is 809. There are countless statements on the internet stating do not call this area code from the U.S. Any suggestions or experience with this?

1 + 809 + number. That's the way to contact someone in the D.R.

Reading the internet too much?

If I don't dial that number I can't talk to anyone there.

What you are seeing on the internet is a scam currently going on. If you get a one ring and hang up on your phone DO NOT call the number back. If you have a valid number you are needing to reach and you are initiating the call it is perfectly fine to dial the number. 809 and 829 are valid area codes for the D.R. for many numbers.
