Tropical all-inclusive Punta Cana resort lures with leisure activities
Tropically colored buildings and swaying palms paint the scene of paradise at Ocean Blue and Sand Beach Resort- Punta Cana All Inclusive, which is steps from the White Sands Golf Course. The kid-friendly, all-suite property attracts leisure travelers with 374 rooms decorated with island style and British Colonial-inspired furniture. A heavy roster of leisure activities -- like scuba lessons and bowling -- complements the many bars and restaurants on site.
Highlights
  • Multiple leisure activities, from bow and arrow to bowling
  • Seven a la carte restaurants, two buffets and 10 bars
  • All-suite tropical hotel with air conditioning and balconies
  • Walking distance to White Sands Golf Course
Rooms
Ocean Blue and Sand Beach Resort- Punta Cana All Inclusive rooms evoke breezy tropical decor driven by bright colors, palm prints and British Colonial furniture. All 374 rooms are air conditioned suites equipped with welcome conveniences like marble bathrooms with double sinks, a mini-refrigerator filled with sodas and balcony for taking in views of the lush grounds. Guests rest on one king or two double beds topped with patterned bedding. An in-room Jacuzzi furthers the luxury. Walls sport an island motif with vibrant colors like aqua or salmon and coastal-themed artwork.
Features
Recreation
A dedicated entertainment staff keeps the itinerary busy all day long at  Ocean Blue and Sand Beach Resort- Punta Cana All Inclusive.

The hotel also invites patrons to go wall climbing or bowling (at a maximum of one hour of play per room).

Diners indulge in diverse fare at the seven a la carte restaurants and two buffets at  Ocean Blue and Sand Beach Resort- Punta Cana All Inclusive.

Beach Getaway

Ocean Blue was a great place to stay. The hotel staff was very friendly. I'm a female solo traveler and felt completely safe. There was no shortage of hotel sponsored activities. There's a jogging/walking trail. Plus the lobby is filled with excersion companies. I went on the snorkeling trip one day and had a great time. There's nighly shows - changing every night - that were entertaining. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The pools were clean and plenty of chairs. The beach area also had plenty of chairs. Plus there are umbrellas, so you can hide out if you've had too much sun. I'd gotten a rental car, but didn't need it. There are plenty of transportation options to get to and from the airport. I drove to a shopping center one day, but the front desk said there are buses that transport traveler there on a schedule. In the mornings, I saw buses for the excersion companies pick up people. I probably wouldn't get a car if I were to go back. The only down side was the food options. There are several resturants, but they are only open for dinner (starting at 6:30pm). The dinners that I had were fine, but nothing that I couldn't get State side. Breakfast is buffet with a lot of options and was good. Lunch is held in their "snack" shop, but I wasn't super impressed with the quality of the lunch. Room service is good and fairly quick, and I found the best option for lunch. Overall I would recommend Ocean Blue.

Awesome Trip!!!

The Ocean Blue and Sand is an excellent hotel. We went with friends and upgraded to the priveleged plan and were extremely satisfied with everything. The rooms were great, the food deserved a 5 star rating and the staff was always friendly and helpful. There was something for everyone activity wise all the time. This was our 6th time to Punta Cana and it was the best ever and we had previously stayed in 5 star hotels. Free 5 minute massages on the beach how great is that. Two large pools and beach bars and bali beds on the beach just topped off a great vacations since we left in snow and come back to snow. Great time had by all of us. Thanks to all the staff at Ocean blue especially Jack, Henry ,Diamond and Maria who did a wonderful job on our room. The trolley was a nice touch too in case it was too hot to walk back to the room or we were too tired or too tipsy!! The shows were good too and we have seen alot of bad ones at other resorts.

Do not be deterred by the fact that the seafood restaurant is outdoors on picnic tables. The food and service was superb. Lobster and filet cooked to perfection.

First time get-away to an all-inclusive

PROS - We wanted a beautiful beach and beautiful weather - we got both. This was our first time to an all inclusive and were very impressed with the facility, which was truly a beautiful place, and the friendliness of the staff. I asked for a room by and facing the pool after being told I had a room away from the pool/beach and facing another resort (trees). My request was honored within the hour. Buffet Food was OK - Restaurants were better. CONS The entertainment C- If your looking for first class entertainment look elsewhere. Bottom line - I would return.

Perfect place go and enjoy!!!!!

Me and my hubby just got back yesterday and we loved our vacation!!!!!! We have been to all inclusive before but always in Mexico so we went into to this trip knowing nothing about where we were going. We were so happy with our whole trip. We were blessed with a great airline....we flew delta, VIP travel taxi service.....got us right to our hotel.....Ocean Blue was fantastic, the rooms are clean and have everything u need, the grounds are beautiful and spread out so u can walk and enjoy. Food was fresh and plentiful....if u can't find something to eat, then u have a food problem in general, entertainment at beach and pool.... Hilarious!!!! One of the best things....Mikes coffee bar!!!! If your looking for fun in the sun, don't hesitate....go and enjoy yourself

Our 30th Wedding Anniversary Present to each other!

Wonderful resort! Beautiful clean grounds and swimming pool areas. The staff is very friendly and made us feel special. Everyone always said "ola". The waiters were very kind and polite. The entertainment made it so fun, especially during the day hours around the pool. We especially give a shout out to "Willie Wonka". He is a hoot and is a class clown. Always made our day. Was fun watching the Super Bowl at the beach. It was a once in a lifetime to say we got to do that. Many people we met bragged about Ocean Blue being the nicest resort they have been too at the Dominican. So glad this was our first!

If you are a breakfast eater, the 1st morning I wasn't aware that the buffet closed by 10:30 am. There is Mike's Coffee shop that has pastries, but was to hard to hold me over until lunch! The buffet has a line for omelets, pancakes, smoothies. So go to those lines first if that is your preference. Is a safe bet to get there before 9 am.

Anniversary Trip

The hotel is beautiful and the grounds are well kept. The beach and water are beautiful and you can walk for miles in each direction, which me and my wife enjoy to do. The food was better than other resorts we have stayed at. The steak house was the best of the restaurants. If you like coffee you have to go to MIKES we went 3 times daily. The two large pools were nice and big never felt crowded. The staff was friendly and helpful but there is a language barrier you will have to work with. Most of the staff know a few words of English and we were able to get what we wanted.We had a great time.

Good for the money

English is my second language so excuse my grammar. I’m from the Dominican Republic living in the USA, so I will be as honest as possible without being bias. Travelled from 12/17/12 to 12/21/12 with my wife. First the good Getting from the Punta Cana airport to the hotel was easy; we took a taxi for 38.00 US dollars. No need to book ahead of time. Usually that price will be the same upto 4 people. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the hotel. (Ocean Blue) Check in was easy and took about 3 minutes. Then, we got a tour of the hotel in a golf cart. I found it very informative. The hotel grounds were excellent, the place was very clean. The rooms were clean and organized, everything worked. The beach and pool were fantastic. Food was exceptional, we did not go to any of the restaurant, as the food in the main buffet was very good and the variety was good. The juice/ fruit bar was super. The papaya with milk was my favorite. Mike’s café was amazing; the specialty coffees were very good. My wife and I went there after every meal. The hotel was not crowed at all, taking to some of the guys that work in the hotel we found out that the high season start after Dec 20th and the internal tourism (locals) decreases significantly after 2nd week of December. For us this was the best time to go. Wi-Fi signal was good (free only in the lobby area) There was live music every night in the lobby area; the duo does a good job. Now the not so good. Our luggage took more than one hour to be delivered to our room, even after several calls. The sales people were very annoying, trying to sell time share. We received phone calls to our rooms 2 days in a row. I found it very discourteous for the guess to be called early in the morning interrupting our sleep. Also while we were getting to buffet, we got stop by the sales people. (You need to be firm and tell them “NO GRACIAS, NO ESTAMOS INTERESADOS” I think the animation staff is ok. I found some of the dancing was a little vulgar, especially when the guys were dancing in front of the people. The housekeeping personnel were a bit loud in the morning for people that like to sleep in. I will recommend carrying your luggage to the room if is not too much, also bringing everything that you need. The prices in the hotel shops are ridiculously high. Regarding the sales people, put the things clear from the beginning tell them “NO” (if you are not interested) so they do not bother you anymore. Overall it was good value for the money. We enjoyed our stay. I will come back.

Average

Went for a wedding, which was a lot of fun. The Spa was really nice. Great massage. The hotel itself is nothing special. Service was poor. Food was hit&miss. Timeshare salesmen approach you everywhere you go. No hot tub. Hallways and corridors flood and pool water after it rains.
