Ocean Blue & Sand is great!

We spent a week at Ocean Blue & Sand in August 2016 and it was fantastic. The beach and water were great, although there are still sandbags set up in the water from a previous storm earlier this year. The sandbags were no bother at all though. There are plenty of beach chairs, but I would recommend heading out super early in the morning to save some chairs. The only other thing better than the beach was the food at the buffet! There is only one buffet at this resort, but the food was so good that you won't need another one. We ate all of our breakfasts and lunches there, though we tried to change it up for dinner. Margaritas, the Mexican restaurant, was not good at all though and I would not recommend visiting it. The Japanese restaurant and the steakhouse on the other hand were good as well. The staff at the restaurants and the entire resort were very helpful and friendly, and we actually didn't get bothered very much by vendors trying to sell us random items. The rooms themselves could use some work though, as you can tell that they are kind of dated. The beds were not as comfortable as I'd personally like them to be. Overall, we had a great time at Ocean Blue & Sand and would definitely visit again.

The beautiful beach! The water was beautiful!

Worst place to stay in punta cana

Worst hotel in punta cana. The place was in need of a total renovation. The rooms smelled. If you weren't privileged the liquor was terrible. The food was terrible. The workers were very rude and ignored you most of the time. Never staying here agian

Nice Vacation

Overall the hotel is very nice. I think it needs minor updates and repairs in the rooms. Safe didn't work. Shower wasn't working properly. Jacuzzi tub had no way of holding water. Door frame was missing part of the frame and not to much hot water or pressure. Minor things you don't need to enjoy a great vacation. Food was good. Different choices, Entertainment was also good and funny and they make sure guest are enjoying there stay. Make sure you bring lots of singles for tips. Pool was excellent beach not so good. Those big sand bags I did not like. I also did excursions which were excellent thru the company affiliated with cheap Caribbean. Overall I recommend this hotel.

Ocean Blue is well worth the money

I went with my cousins late august and had a the time if my life. We researched other resorts and made some calls and heard that ocean blue was the funnest one of all for our budget. For about 1200 a person we stayed for 7 nights Flying from New York. Their was lots of energy everywhere and the club was always great. The only thing was that there is a bit of walking to do around the resort, the beds arent the most comfortable, and the beach really is nothing to look forward too. But the pools are great, there was always people in it all day having fun drinking and watching the activities. In my opinion i would definitely go back next vacation.n And also take advantage of the free room service, the rice and chicken with cheesecake is amazing.

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.
