Best vacation ever

My boyfriend and I went to Punta Cana for the first time and stayed at Ocean Blue and Sand Resort. Everything was perfect. The food was delicious, the staff was wonderful, the resort was very clean, there was plenty to do and the rooms were beautiful. We had zero complaints however I would recommend upgrading to privilege.

Enjoyed Punta Cana and Ocean Blue

Ocean Blue is an excellent resort, the service and the employees are top notch. Anything you request is provided. Restaurants were great, many choices and you didn't have to make reservations (first come first serve) with the exception of the hibachi restaurant which understandable needs to properly fill the tables. The beach and the pool were well maintained and there always some activity going on, the staff want you to enjoy your time there. I will add that you need to be ready to walk, the resort is a sizeable. However there is always a shuttle making its rounds. Overall we had a great time.

Ok trip

A great trip all in all but if going back to the Dominican Republic this wouldn't be a first choice. The pools were great and so big that you didn't feel crowded even with hundreds of people in them. A big down fall was the beach. There was a ton of seaweed which was probably just due to the tides, however, the huge sand bags that had washed up on shore and the small oil slicks from the boats located nearby left swimming in the ocean nearly unbearable. Thankfully they had great pools to back this up. Another downfall to the resort is the "time share" people. Doesn't matter how long you stay there, they are everyday stopping you and trying to get you to buy into their vacation packages. This makes vacation more like a never ending business meeting and isn't very relaxing. The housekeeping was a little lacking also. The first day there we started with a full amount of towels that was needed for our group. Each time the towels were taken from the room only a fraction of them were replaced. This continued for a few days until we were left with 1 bath towel for our group. We called the towel service and they stated they would be right up with them... Well long story short the next day we had to walk up to the reception desk and let them know what was happening. After that we didn't have any issues but vacation was almost over at this point. The food was average and the wait times for the theme restaurants was laughable at times. We went to the formal adults only restaurant and there were 3 other groups, none bigger than 6 people in the entire place. It took 20 minutes for anyone to even come to our table to take an order. Then we sat there for 2 hours for a subpar meal. Definitely wouldn't recommend that place if staying there. Opt for one of the other places such as Route 66, Sensai, or the Steakhouse. The buffets were great too with a huge selection. Not a bad resort for the money but if your looking for total relaxation without any hassle and gourmet food, this isn't the resort for you. I can say that one great aspect of this place is the entertainment staff. They were always engaging with the vacationers and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. They put on great shows and did many great things for the resort.

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.

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.
