Great Vacation

We traveled with 2 teenage girls, during the 2nd week in April. It was nice to have a family friendly place during spring break. Resort was very nice, heard a rumor that they might re remodeling at the end of the year. Rooms were very clean, maid service daily was well done, room service was good and timely. Restaurants and buffets were excellent! Very good food and great variety. Beach was nice and had no problems getting a beach chair everyday. Pools were clean, large and plenty of lounge chairs. Towel service was good. Staff was very friendly! Shows each night were great! Only downfall was there could have been better clean up service around the beach and pool area during the day, seems like they did most of there clean up after they closed up for the evening. Most of the people at the resort were pretty good at picking up after themselves. We would recommend this resort to anyone, we might go back next year. Just dont get sucked into the time share meeting.

Just ok

We enjoyed our stay at the Ocean Blue and Sand, but we will not stay there again. Here are the pros/cons in our opinion... Pros Mike's coffee shop Very clean pools Plenty of hot water in rooms overall pretty clean Food good, especially specialty restaurants Cons Loud pool party every afternoon Badly eroded beach, with gigantic ugly sandbags Very few umbrellas or huts unfriendly housekeeping staff aggressive sales pitches for upgrades and other properties

Fun Spring Break!

Just returned after a 7-day stay with my husband and 3 kids (9, 6, 3). I'll start by saying that if we didn't have Privilege status at this resort, my ratings would've likely been much lower. There seems to be a big difference in experiences among Privilege and non-Privilege stays. Amenities are much better, service seems to be better, and overall experience seems much more accommodating. Room: Clean, updated, plenty of drinks restocked daily. We stayed in Bldg 10 on the third floor. VERY quiet, which was a nice surprise during spring break. In this unit we were closest to the beach and kids' club, which was nice, but also put us farthest from the main buffet and restaurants. Not too bad of a walk though compared to other large resorts we've stayed at. Food: The a la carte breakfast and room service included in Privilege status made this the best dining experience we've had at an all-inclusive. The buffet had a lot of good options, including many healthy choices. The restaurants were typical. We had a very fun experience at the Mexican and Japanese restaurants. We also tried the steakhouse and Italian restaurants, which were average. Service: Very friendly service everywhere on the resort, but quality was inconsistent. I chalk this up to a communication barrier as we used English most of the time and Spanish when we could. Entertainment: I loved the entertainment staff at this resort. They worked their tails off to make sure everyone was having a good time. They were great with the kids and SO enthusiastic. Each day we joined them in beach games, water aerobics, bingo in the early evening, and music and dancing in the later evening, followed by the nightly show. They made it fun everyday. Beach and pool. We spent most of our time in the pool, which is huge and well maintained. There has been a lot of beach erosion in this area from recent storms (i.e., Matthew in '16), so the beach area is rather small. But you can walk endlessly in either direction since the beach itself is federal property. We enjoyed the cabanas on the beach when we could snag one with excellent drink service by Mercedes. She was great. All in all, it was a great vacation. I would definitely recommend this resort with Privilege accommodations. I compared notes with other travelers and we got such a great deal on cheapcarribbean.com. We paid as much as others did for a standard rate.

Ok vacation

I have been in many resorts and this one is my least favor. The satff is nice but sone of them need nore training in costumer service. A lot of then dont even smike or say good morning. The things I like abouth this resort are the privilage rooms, the beach and the swiming pool area. Great for family vacations. What I didn't lije was the fact the there is not too many variety in the food. No sea food. Likebothet all i clusive, in this one you will not see staff walking around the pool asking you what you want to drink. Overall is an ok resort and if you want a ok vacation go to Ocean sand. However if you want quality service, luxury and a better gastronomy go some place else.

What's to Love

The Ocean Blue & Sand offers renovated Junior Suites and luxurious Privilege Suites that are major reasons to pick this one; the kids clubs and a swim-up bar, spa and golf for the folks are the icing on the cake!

 

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.

 

Why You Should Go

There's no end of things to do at the Ocean Blue & Sand; don't miss the bowling alley, cool kids clubs and the incredible service.

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.
