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.
General
Recreation
A dedicated entertainment staff keeps the itinerary busy all day long at  Ocean Blue and Sand Beach Resort- Punta Cana All Inclusive. Guests might take a scuba diving lesson in the pool, play beach volleyball or water polo or learn how to maneuver a bow and arrow. Theme parties keep the mood festive, while off-site excursions like catamaran expeditions and snorkeling tours cater to thrill seekers. The hotel also invites patrons to go wall climbing or bowling (at a maximum of one hour of play per room).
Location

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. La Casa de mi abuela and La Casa Caribbean Grill plate up local dishes, while La Tortuga is a staple for the all-day buffet. Some eateries come with an extra dose of ambiance, from Arenal Beach Restaurant and Snack Bar to reservations required-Bucareno, a seafood boite right on the beach. Ten bars -- including a swim-up bar -- fuel the tropical scene.

The resort Is beautiful. The maids are not to friendly and not to attentive to your needs. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and the staff other than the maids are very friendly and attentive.

Great thanksgiving getaway

For the price and location this place was awesome. Got the most bang for buck. Only downside is taxi rides cost 40 a round trip. But if you stay at resort the whole time the taxi price will not effect you.

Winter Escape

I felt this resort was a very good value for the price. The food at each of the restaurants was very good and they had a variety of options at the buffets. Before dinner, send a member of your group early to check out the wait status at the sit down restaurants and get your name on the list. If you plan to go to the French restaurant, bring closed-toed shoes. The rooms were just okay, the shower was dated, leaked, and from the looks of the ceiling, it seemed the shower from the room above us might fall in. They had plenty of chairs around the pool deck and beach, but many people set their stuff out early in the morning or the night before to reserve their preferred spot. They had an extensive bar and a menu of island specialties. Overall, we really enjoyed our trip, but who can complain when you're out of the office and on the beach??

Couples getaway

We really enjoyed our stay! We loved the coffee shop!! The steak house restaurant is the best restaurant to go to out of all of them. We wish there was more activities by the pool. We loved the beach there the water is amazing. We will definitely be going back to Punta Cana in the future.

Nice place

Hotel was nice and clean. Restaurants did not require advance reservations but wait was 1-2 hours each night. Next to hotel there are shanty shops that sell souviners and beach is eroded there they are using plastic burlap bags full of sand to barricade from further erosion - bags are emptying and getting in water and washing ashore and no one is cleaning the beach it is horrible to be swimming and pull a plastic burlap bag out if the water.

Great Vacation

This hotel is one of my favorite all inclusive spots I ever stayed at. The food was very good. The steakhouse was the best, but a bit of a wait. The Mexican restaurant was good, too. If you're hungry at night the sports bar stays open & serves hot food. The drinks were a bit watered down but that is to be expected at a all inclusive hotel. The room was very nice & clean. Much to do at night also. Bowling, casino & shows. The things I didnt like was the shower door. It only covered half of the shower & water was everywhere. I think they should have servers walking around the beach & pool serving drinks instead of always having to get up & go to the bar. Definitely a great spot to stay.
