beautiful resort

room was super clean and housekeeping came in every day to clean. food was wonderful and restaurants very clean. resort staff was very nice and accommodating. bar tenders in the lobby "made" our week - so engaging and so much fun! only problem was, we felt pressured the whole 5 days because of the push to get the guests to buy into the H10 vacation club. people at the hotel AND H10 employees were very pushy. we couldn't leave our room without at least 2 or 3 different companies trying to sell us excursions accosting us, to the point where we almost had to be a little rude to them. our package was "all inclusive", and supposedly included use of snorkeling equipment and non-motorized boat rentals; however, suddenly no one at the resort spoke English or knew what we were talking about when we asked about those amenities.

HS Spring Break Family Trip

For my sons Sr class trip, a bunch of us decided to go to Dominican and stay at Ocean Blue. We read all the reviews and were a little nervous before we got there. Once we were there, it was a very nice trip and overall stay. The hotel was nice, not the nicest I have ever stayed in, but not bad either. Facility was nice, clean, kept up. Rooms were good, not great but clean which is good for my wife's standards. Food was good, a mix of good and some great (loved the hibachi grill), but main eating room was good with a good variety and always a good breakfast. Lines got long at times, but not terrible. Overall, Ocean Blue and Sand was good. The worst things about my trip was a misunderstanding on luggage fees and having to pay $300 extra since I didn't reserve my bags a week in advance (no one ever pointed that out). The other issues I had with our trip was the marketplace tables setup near the main entrance. When you walked past the vendors, they were relentless trying to guilt you into stopping at their table. I get they're just trying to make a living but I felt like it was too much hassling of us. I bought some things the first night, but then every night we'd go past them we'd get hassled again. I also didn't like the guys who met us when we checked in who were actually sales people trying to sell us more vacations. Make sure you know who is a hotel employee and who the sales guys are. The lobby bar at night was almost a 10 minute wait to get service for a drink. Not enough staff. Other bars had great service. The one other thing I would point out that made this trip was the entertainment staff. Those guys worked their tails off from sun up to late into the night. We came to know one worker, he went by the name Willy Wonka. That guy was great. He worked his butt off and my family loved him. He made sure things went well for us and I honestly don't know where he got his energy. Great guy for Ocean Blue to have on staff. Overall we had a great time and the things we were nervous about regarding the resort, never panned out. It was a nice trip to a nice place. Again, not the greatest, but nothing bad enough to ruin our trip.

ocean blue and sand

This trip was one of many all-inclusive I've been too. It was beautiful, clean friendly with plenty to do for everyone. Remember not everything is perfect and you will not be disappointed. I noticed on some other reviewers they complained about some small tiles on the pool missing, or little things were broke. And they were right. But if you look at the big picture, everything was awesome. It needs a little care , but it was a very clean place with very friendly staff. They will cater to everything you can desire. Most go out of their way to please. From the maids to the bartenders, everyone was genuinely happy to serve you. We stayed in building 4 with the pool side view. Third floor is what I recommend. Has the best view. Food was outstanding. Service with a smile everyday. if you like to complain, I'm sure you could find something, but all in all it was a piece of paradise for 7 days. My thanks to all who made our trip so terrific .

What's to Love

What We'd Change

It can take a few minutes to walk from the resort to the beach. If your limbs are feelin' a bit lazy, hop on the hotel's shuttle and you'll be beach-bound in no time.

Hotel Description

Ocean Blue & Sand Beach Resort, Punta Cana: Get Ready to Double Down

If life feels like one long day after another, give yourself permission to check out the magnificent Ocean Blue & Sand Beach Resort. The Ocean Blue and Ocean Sand share facilities, which means twice the activities of an average resort by offering dining and amenities for every one of their guests with access to both resorts. Each resort houses half of the combined 708 five-star suites and junior suites. VIP concierge service is offered for Privilege Jr. Suites.

Located along the lush Dominican Republic's Punta Cana, this all-inclusive dreamboat offers water activities, such as snorkeling, windsurfing and scuba diving, plus unique ways to see the sights, including a cool beachfront climbing wall. Float under swaying palm trees in the quiet pool or order a margarita and join the party at the other pool's swim-up bar. When you've had enough water fun, channel your inner Robin Hood at the archery range, shoot pool like Minnesota Fats, or peddle like Lance Armstrong on a bike.

If you're feeling in need of pampering, relax at Ocean Spa, then grab an Irish Coffee at Mike's, the coffeehouse at Ocean Blue & Sand. Fully caffeinated and ready to go, cash in at the Ocean Tower Casino, or strike out with the family at the bowling alley. If bowling balls aren't your cup of tea, splurge a little and grab a tee-time at nearby White Sands Golf Course, an 18-hole course designed by Spanish golf great, Jose "Pepe" Gancedo.

Guests can have their taste buds tickled with a smattering of delicious dining options from El Bodegon's Spanish tapas, to Route 66's 1950s diner, to La Casa de Mi Abuela's traditional Dominican fare. Dine where you like, when you like, with no reservations needed. And for those who really rock around the clock, you can play the night away at the resort's Wave Disco Bar. So if you just can't stop... you don't have to at Ocean Blue & Sand Beach Resort, where it's all inclusive, all of the time.
