Average Resort

There was nothing special about it. We had to complain in order to reserve the Japanese restaurant (Sensai). They just decided to make up their own policy that day that one person can reserve seats for as many as 7 people but when I asked to see that they wouldn't let me see it. The people who reserved didn't even show up.

Will not return

It’s hard to return from a beautiful, well earned vacation and say to your family and friends that it was “ok” but you don’t plan on returning. This was our experience in Punta Cana. Let me begin with the resort being the main reason we won’t go back. We arrived on a Friday and immediately felt bombarded by the staff to make money off of us in any possible way. Before we even got to settle in, the staff were trying to schedule some elusive meeting they told us we needed to go to. During the course of the weekend, we were continually approached by the staff about this meeting and even called in our room which was a plan to sell us a vacation program. We finally caved to hear the message over lunch but steered clear of the staff after because we wanted to be left alone and just relax a bit. During the first three days, the resort was full of the local people and super crowded. The service was to us was just short of disappointing. The room service took hours and was cold and we had to beg for a bottle of rum that never showed up. We additionally arrived to a room that promised a full mini bar which was completely empty and took many tries with different staff to get stocked. The only places open for dinner for non proviledged members seemed to be the buffet and the Mexican restaurant that didn’t have too friendly of staff. I will add the buffet for dinner wasn’t too good and going to the buffet for three meals a day isn’t exactly what we pictured? Moving on to the beach. The reason we go to the Carribean and what the resort promised was so disappointing! You couldn’t even swim beause the seaweed was so thick. It also stunk very bad. So we never returned to the beach. We also picked this resort because we were traveling with our 19 month old son and claimed to be a family resort with a lot of things for kids. Well, there were no kid activities or kids playgrounds(accessible) besides the pool? The only thing we ended up doing was an excursion where we got to see the surrounding resorts and saw a completely different experience with tons of things to do and places to shop and eat. The people staying at these beautiful alternate resorts raved about it and said no one had hasstled them to buy anything. They also said the service was great and there was so many things to do from mini golf to a water playground. Ours had a Casino and theatre that may have opened at 7pm? The last two days were weekdays and completely different experience. The locals were gone and the staff were so attentive and pleasant! All we wanted was to have a great time and relax, eat, drink, watch our kid play and do the opposite of our stressful, busy life back home. The last two days were at least better and we appreciated that. But We felt like we were constantly being pursued for money and that’s not our idea of a vacation. The good points? The room was clean. The staff were great with our son at all times. There were certain staff that were always great to us. The pools were very nice when not crowded. The gym was decent. The breakfast was amazing at the buffet! We also highly recommend the excursion trip with Sammy. That was the best part of he trip!!! Thank you for letting us be honest and share this experience. We would definitely suggest you visit on a weekday, not with very young children or pick another resort altogether.

Couldn't have been better!

This was our first time out of the country, so we were a little worried about that. Come to find out we were worried for no reason. When we arrived in Punta Cana- everything had already been taken care of. We got transported to the hotel where they unloaded are bags for us. When we checked in Ocean Blue & Sand assigned an assistant, Jesus, for us. He took us by golf cart to our room and unloaded our bags. Our room was spacious and clean. The fridge was stocked and he asked if he could do anything further. Jesus recommended making dinner reservations, dinner does fill up quickly, so he made all of our reservations for the week and planned everything. Whenever we needed to go somewhere on the opposite side of the resort either Jesus or Luis assisted us. We stayed "privileged" and I would highly recommend it- it is well worth the money if you are able. It got us closer to the pool and ocean- therefore it was easy to go wherever quickly. They do also have another courtesy golf cart that has designated stops if needed. The beach was beautiful and so was the weather, there was seaweed- it is the ocean, but there was a maintenance team that helped to keep the seaweed down. There were multiple bars- both swim up and at the beach which is very convenient. The thing that was very nice about this resort is that there is a lot to do; such as some shops, a casino, pool tables, a bowling alley, a teen club- there is also a piano lounge and there are multiple shows/activities in various places of the resort. There is also ALOT of security, which I personally felt very safe, there is a guard on the beach that ensures the outside vendors aren't too push and also makes sure everything is secure. At night there are guards on bikes that make sure everything is secure. There is a variety of food choices- our personal favorites were the steak house and the Japanese restaurants. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone- all of them are beautiful but I think Ocean Blue & Sand has a lot of positive qualities that can keep everyone at any age entertained. Me and my husband will absolutely return! Thank you to the staff at both Ocean Blue & Sand and the staff at Cheap Caribbean!

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.
