Mediocre all inclusive.

Lots of dining options but food is mediocre at best. Bar service was okay when you could get the bar tenders attention! Tips did little to expedite service. Pool and beach both good.

Great Value for the Price

As a background, this is my 4th stay at an all inclusive resort in the Caribbean. Pros: -Food was way better than the average resort food -No reservations needed at restaurants (minus the Japanese one) -Buffet was huge and varied each day -Two Huge lovely pools: a quiet one and a loud "party one" -Fully stocked fridge -All employees were very friendly and courteous -Rooms were spacious and on the modern side -Grounds were immaculate and gorgeous -Resort favored a Spanish style with quaint courtyards with tables and chairs, perfect for visiting or reading. Cons: -There is one large, beautiful hot tub and it was out-of-order my entire stay. A real bummer because I love hot tubs and since I went in winter, it was slightly cooler. -Not sure if it was just my room, but once you flush the toilet, it can't be flushed again for 20 minutes. Not fun when you are sharing the room with other people. Notes: -This is a huge resort with a decent amount of walking. Lobby to beach is...at least a 1/4 mile. I love strolling through the resort but there is a shuttle available for those who can't handle the walking. -I wasn't that impressed with the beach. Water wasn't clear and there was seaweed. To be honest, I have heard the beaches here aren't as nice as the other places I've been (Jamaica, Bahamas, Turks and Caicos) -This resort seems to be a hair further away than many other resorts (eg. Melia, Princess). For excursions and with the airport shuttle, we were almost always the first to be picked up and the last to be dropped off. I combed through the reviews of different resorts in Punta Cana and felt like I made the right choice! We were very happy with our stay and would recommend this resort

timeshare

Staff works hard to make sure you have a good time.We had to ask for washcloths One per room per day sometimes none.Biggest complaint was people saving beach chair,they would put towels there to save and never show up,leaving the best seats empty.Another complaint was the timeshare pitch.We spent the first morning being tortured by the sales staff trying to get their commisions.Don't waste your time this resort needs a facelift as it's becoming tired looking.The people making improvements are doing a terrible job,paint splattered everywhere,installation of new flooring in rooms is terrible.Good food,nice location,drinks watered down but ok,entertainment boring.But if you are looking for sun on the cheap this is a great one.Do not use Spirit airline they uncharge for everything.We paid for an over weight bag going wife took out much stuff to come back and they said it was heavier than going.Will never use spirit again!

Will Return!

Bathroom in both rooms we rented needed some work in the bathtubs but housekeeping were super friendly. Many food options. The Blue Moon is super overlooked- every time we went it was empty but the food is AMAZING! Put your towels on chairs early... they get claimed fast! The buffet by the beach has the most amazing view. Bring first aid supplies just in case, split my toe open and was told they were only allowed to give one bandaid per guest Will return with my children next time! Tip! We saw so many people not, it made such a different.

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.
