Week Long Trip for Couple

Pros: 1) The resort in general was beautiful. The landscaping, exotic beach feeling, and the buildings give off a "Italian villa" type of feel. 2) The staff was great. Everyone was so nice and willing to help. Our restaurant staff and all bartenders were fun and always made sure you were happy. 3) Ocean water was clear and beautiful once you got past the sandbags and seaweed. We went in the water on the outside of the sandbags, to the side of our resort, and it was no problem at all. 4) All -inclusive was 100% the best way to go for this trip. It made everything so much easier. The dining options weren't anything fancy but certainly gave many options and overall was very satisfying. The drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic were all great. Cons: 1) There are people on the resort and on the beach non stop trying to sell you stuff, offering excursion trips, or persuading you to upgrade your package. We learned quickly to just say "no thanks" and keep walking, otherwise you are trapped in conversation. 2) The beach in front of the resort has been eroding in past years I guess, so now they have these huge sandbags in the shallow waters to help keep the sand in place over time. We're not sure, but perhaps these sand bags also impacted the large amounts of seaweed along the beach. There were workers out each morning raking and shoveling the seaweed to take it away. Between the sandbags and the seaweed, it was just an eyesore, but the water itself was clear and beautiful. 3) The other problem we encountered on the beach was limited seating. There was actually plenty of lounge chairs and beach umbrella, but the problem was that people would come out early and save their spots with the general beach towels, but wouldn't show up for a couple more hours. Same thing was true for lunch break. Plenty of open spots, but they were all saved and not being used. 4) The pool bars and beach bar all close at 6:00 pm. This wasn't too much of a problem though, as generally we left to go get ready for dinner by that time anyways.

Worth the money!!

3 friends and I recently stayed at OB&S. 3 of us are 18, one of us was 19. The rooms were great, but could have been a little cooler. There is no temperature control in the room and the ceiling fan doesn't do much. The buffet breakfast is great, lunch and dinner were mediocre at best. Definitely check out the villa for lunch and the other restaurants for dinner. Our favorite was the steak house. The bartenders were all awesome, our favorite was Abel at the pool bar. The beach was nice but the sandbags were an eyesore, but obviously out of everyone's control. All of the staff that we encountered were amazing. We were there for Monday-Friday, June 5-9. We wish we never had to leave. We booked an excursion through a rep at the resort (I forget the company name, the reps name was Destin). $70/person for snorkeling, catamaran ride, swimming with sand sharks and bbq. Well we didn't swim with sharks or have a bbq but that was okay, it was still very fun. Booking with Cheap Caribbean was great. As soon as we booked (over the phone, I will add, but I now feel comfortable enough to do it online) we went to American Airlines website to choose our seats for the flights. We also booked rides to/from the airport-hotel. I definitely recommend this, you don't want to have to find a ride once you get to the airport. BRING A PEN for each person in your party to fill out customs forms on the plane. It was so hectic to fill them out at the booth. Felt very rushed. All in all, we would definitely come back to this resort and we will 100% be booking witch Cheap Caribbean.

OK

This was not our first all inclusive. Was saddened to see the large burlap bags in the ocean to keep the beach from eroding. There was so much seaweed. I walked the beach and none of the other resorts had near this much. It appeared to me that the others raked it. One day out of the entire week I saw one man picking it up with his hands and putting it in plastic bags. The pool was too hot. They needed to put dry ice in it to cool it off. From day 1 our ceiling fan didn't work. Our toilet leaked. I called guest services each day up until Wednesday I continued to call. No one ever came. There was a staff person with the Apple Vacation man. He asked how everything was going I told him about the toilet. He said it would be taken care of. He did come up to room with a guy and they thought they fixed it, but it wasn't. He did offer to move us to another room, but we were with others and had everything unpacked. We had two huge roaches. Our friends went through Apple Vacation and I feel that they were much better advised of things than I was. We were never told about the exclusive private dinner for Apple Vacation and Cheap Caribbean customers that was on the beach. This was fabulous. So glad I found out about it. On the good side, the staff was super efficient, caring, nice. The restaurants were very good. The Japanese was awesome. The resort itself was beautiful as far as the trees, flowers and palm trees. I'm not sure I would go back only because I like to try different places. Thank you.

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.
