Our favorite place

This was our third trip to Ocean Blue and Sand. We really like the atmosphere at this resort. It is a smaller and older resort but it is very well kept. All of the staff are friendly and happy which results in excellent service. Our pool side bartender Manuel even recognized us after two years! We love going there and just relaxing. The two pools and pool bars are perfect for relaxing no matter if you are very young or very old. We would definitely recommend this resort to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation.

Not what I Expected...hard to relax

We visited Ocean Blue & Sand Resort November 3-7, 2018. When we got to our room, the ceiling had cracked and the plaster from the ceiling was all over the floor, the room smelled of mildew, there was mold on the ceiling and the bathroom was not clean (soap scum, dirty tub, dirty sink, etc.). It also took about 20 minutes for the bell hop to bring our luggage. After a long travel day, this was horrible! We called the Front Desk and they told us they would give us another room. The second room was a little better but still smelled of mildew, had a missing lamp, did not have an iron, wash cloths or Kleenex (I have terrible allergies) and the bathroom mirror was rusted. It literally took over an hour to get an iron. The next morning we had an early call from the transfer company (Amstar) to review excursions available for purchase...AND the hotel worker (Alberto) "scheduled" us to visit the H10 Premium office to tell us about their vacation package/experience they sell. The sales people are very aggressive! They eat breakfast with you and then you go back to their office to hear their sales pitch. We were told the entire presentation and breakfast would be less than one hour...2-1/2 hours later we were still in the office. I would compare it to buying a car...lots of haggling and very annoying! Also on any given night, three of the restaurants were closed since it is not peak travel season. This was not mentioned by the front desk or in Ocean Blue's advertisement on Cheap Caribbean. Also, the cable was out of service the first 3 days of our stay. On day 3 we needed more toilet paper and towels, again it took over an hour to get these items! The rooms need maintenance and to be renovated---certainly not a 4-5 star resort. Given this experience, why would I want to invest in your hotel package?!! The food, entertainment and beautiful weather was the saving grace! This was my first time traveling to the DR. I would definitely not go back to this resort unless it was renovated and the service level improved tremendously.

Punta Cana Vacation

I went on vacation with 4 couples. Rooms need maintenance. Refrigerator did not work as well as air conditioning and TV. Refrigerators not stocked until 2nd day until we asked 2 times. No hand washcloths. Continually was getting hounded for time share or excursion talks. They would sit in the hotel walkways. Bars were generous on booze and very hospitable (lounge, sports bar, swim up and beach bars) Food was fine (Italian and Mexican were very good) Casino very small (2 card tables and around 20 machines) Weather perfect

Relaxed but disappointed.

The setting was beautiful, the food was fine, and the spa was awesome! Unfortunately, the roving beach sales people, the on-property sales people and the H10 sales people made it difficult to relax at all. Also, our room was never properly cleaned. Not one day. The tile floor was never swept and the toilet and sinks only were cleaned once or maybe twice in 10 days. We asked several times for them to clean the bathroom, to no avail. The value was very good otherwise, but beware the excursions.

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.
