Wayyy Below my Expectations

I have been to multiple other all-inclusive resorts, including one in Samana City, DR - but this one really left a bad taste in my mouth. Literally. The food was sooooo bad - I expected to gain weight, and I actually lost weight. The food was soo bland, and aesthetically unappealing - for EVERY meal. From the moment we checked in there were issues, the person that checked us in Ari Angel, had the most unwelcoming personality, it was really a turn off. Then, we checked in at 2:35pm and he said we have to wait until 3pm for the official check-in time, to receive our room keys; 25 mins, really?!?! But we let it go, and went to get something to eat - we got back around 330pm, got our keys - and get this, housekeeping was still cleaning from the last guest... we had to stand around outside with our luggage, and wait another half hour for her to finish. I don't have time to go through every terrible detail of the service and facilities, but I would just warn against coming here!

Buyer Beware

The ratings must be askew for this resort. While Francisco was a fine bartender C. Moreta was a disgrace. The same can be said for maid service, reception, food service, landscaping etc. Fifty percent of the employees are on task while the others do not care. Take the good with the bad I guess. The beach is abysmal, pools average. Food was the shining star here but we will not be back. Too many others to choose from.

Solid all inclusive

Solid resort. Not luxury but you won't be disappointed. Service was very good. Pools very nice. Only complaint is pools close at 7 and there is no way to swim later at night. Other then that we had a great time

Last Minute Change and Not Impressed

Lets me start by saying we were a group of 9 and this trip was a last minute change from our original vacation - no fault of Cheap Caribbean but the Government warning on traveling to Mexico. I worked with Beachologist Chuck who was great and the United Airline Reservationist June (Tampa FL) who was also great. We arrived to Ocean Blue and were overwhelmed with the size of this resort . Check in was fine but then it started with the Reps trying to entice you to a meeting for your "Welcome Gift" which I knew was them trying to get us to buy into a timeshare. We didn't go. Got to our room and it smelled terrible - damp, mildewy smell. Floor didn't look clean, bathroom was disgusting - even had a dead cockroach in the picture. Thoroughly disgusted, I went to the front desk and got my room changed. The second room seemed to be ok until we got back from the pool and our room temp was 83 degrees. Called the front desk and they sent someone to "look" at the AC. Went to dinner and came back and still the room was hot. Called the front desk again and was told they'd send some up. 2 hours later - 11:30pm someone came up - fiddled with the AC said it was ok and left. We sweat all night - totally uncomfortable. Complained to Cesar - the AMSTAR rep. and again changed rooms. The new room had AC but wasn't that clean but at this point I've wasted 2 days switching rooms 3 times - we stayed. My sister-in-law also had to change rooms 2 times for the same reasons as myself and the last room she was in the AC was fine at first but then didn't work - her room was 80 degrees. Cesar from AMSTAR was great in helping set up our excursions. The dining options were ok. The buffet had a variety of foods to choose from the only problem we had was the buffet has HOT - no AC!! Tyring to eat as your sweating - not enjoyable. We tried to eat at the Mexican Restaurant one night - there was a 45 minute wait, which was fine - we left our room number and when we went back they acted as if we were never there and told us it would be another 45 minutes to seat us. Thoroughly annoyed we just ate at the buffet. Mikes Cafe was a great place for coffee and pastries - our favorite was the banana bread. The Japanese restaurant was great. Plenty of good food!! You need a reservation for this place so be sure to make one when you arrive. The pools were good - 1 pool for the non-party crowd and the other for the partiers. The entertainment staff was entertaiinng and little risque at times but who cares your on vacation lol. I was disappointed in the beach - covered with sea weed and stunk. Although people were in the water - we chose not to go in. The 6 from our party who did the Zipline and Dune Buggy tour had a blast!! All 9 of us did the Marinarium tour including my 2 year old (who I was told wasn't able to go by CheapCaribbean) had a blast swimming with the nurse sharks, sting rays and snorkeling. The staff on that trip were amazing - plenty of dancing and drinks on that tour. Although we all had a good time just being together - I would NEVER go back to that hotel again.

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.
