Ocean Blue & Sand Beach Resort - All Inclusive

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good in general. Several a la carta restaurantes.

The staff including bartenders, activities people, waitresses and waiters were the best! Not one complaint . I would highly recommend the privelege club. They make your dinner reservations for you and get you in where you want to go, they don't keep track of the towels you use by the pool or beach, premium liquor served, and you check in and out with them. If you have to deal with the regular reservation staff you have to have lots of patience. The only thing I was unhappy about was the food. More variety needed especially when you are there or a week, and another complaint not one kind or piece of shrimp at the buffets, a little disappointing when you were served these foods in other resorts.

I arrived alone and weary to Ocean Blue, the staff was pleasant and helpful. Anastacio greeted me at the reception desk and assured me of a good time. Martires and Angel from the Sports Bar were great. Alberto at Strikes was courteous. The guys from the coffee shop were terrific! Luz H10 was great! Lala talked me into that fantastic combo massage performed by IdaLiza. The staff's hospitality was excellent and the resort was what I needed to relax, refresh and renew my spirit.

Looks better in person that in pix. But many little problems: beds fixed without sheets or blankets, standing water everywhere after a shower, only a swinging half-door in the shower, patio door got stuck in locked position - couldn't get it open after that, several botched meal reservations, paid for a pool view room - didn't get it, no robes or slippers as promised, VERY slippery conditions on walkways on property when wet or moist, too many bugs for my daughter's sake, a lot of walking - which I like, beach towels ran out almost every day, had to get room keys reset every, single day - which meant standing in line every time. Loved the ubiquitous golf carts for moving people and luggage around - especially nice for the elderly and families with infants. Food and drink were plenty and very tasty...we especially liked the Dirty Monkeys and Margaritas with a splash of Grand Marnier. We loved the Villa Marina facility for breakfast, snacks and specialty dinners.

Went 11/5-11/11 for wedding and liked the resort. Pools were great and staff at pool bars were excellent. Food was good also. Only a few minor hiccups... Safe in parents room had to be replaced twice, toilet stopped working and room flooded from rain. Not enough to ruin the stay but should be addressed and checked before guests arrive. Wedding on the beach went smoothly.

This is the second time we have stayed here and love it. The staff is great, the restaurants our wonderful. I would recommend this resort to anyone. The two pools are huge. For the money, this is a great value.

First was not wowed by my room it was very basic for what I paid felt like I was inside a wildwood nj motel. They give you a coupon for 80 dollars off a room upgrade but it is minimum 100 per night for any upgrade. The staff was very pushy about making you buy gifts and adventure trips or premium memberships , i was walking into the buffet area and A staff member guided me into the premium lounge for our "gift". The "gift " was to eat lunch with a sales person to buy a membership, even after several times stating no thank you. The food was one of the better parts of this resort along with the nightly entertainment. The drinks however were pure sugar with a splash of alcohol . Unfortunately I left my credit card out on the nightstand and it was taken and used by a staff member. Thankfully the charges didn't stick. overall it was an okay resort but I wouldn't recommend it.

The Hotel is excelent , the problem is the person inside the office trying to sell it a time share they are no profesional if you not interested in buy it.

I was 2 times in Ocean blue and sand - very nice place , food is perfecto , people very kind , very clean ! Just beach not clean too much seewed ! Need clean up ! But any way everything is good ! Thank u so much everybody !!!

Food was very good, pool area was nice. Rooms were very dated, no wash cloths for 3 days

Upon arrival the room was not ready. We waited for a alittle over and hour. The room assignment was not great. There was an odor i. The room and a few things were not right. Once I called they immediately came up and fixed the issues. On our third day thanks to orbits our room was changed and this was much better. No odor and the view was a little better. The beach was very close and the pool area was amazing. The food was delicious especially the Habachi restaurant. The staff was friendly and accommodating to all our needs. We went to the spa which was very relaxing and soothing. My family and I went on an excursion the booze cruise. Again the staff was very friendly, my family enjoyed themselves.

Nice staff and hotel. Rooms were not that great and not clean. Not enough towels bathroom tub and shower were not clean. If you called for a missing item in the room (pillows or extra sheet) it took forever to get it and multiple calls had to be placed.

El A.C. estuvo agradable, pero no frio. El personal nos hizo sentir en familia. El hotel, hermoso. En general, si recomiendo este hotel para vacacionar.

All fourteen of us who stayed for the week at Ocean Blue and Sand had a wonderful relaxing time. The time spent at the pool was excellent. The foods served there were great, the staff were very pleasant.

Resort wasn't horrible, but it definitely needed some updating. Restaurants were good but if you didn't have a privilege suite then you would likely be waiting a long time for a table if it was even possible to get one. The entertainment around the pool became pretty raunchy about halfway through the week when half of the island of Puerto Rico came to stay at the resort.

The need to work with the maintenance. The hotel is good but can be better.

No A.C working well in room. so much hot, temperature not going down. There is 3 stories building but no elevator. You need to put your luggage yourself all the way up if you get your room upstaires. Too much to walk from reception to room or to go to eat or any activities to do. Mosquitoes in room.

Beach is not existent. AC doesn't make any effect in room temperature. Stains in bath tub. As a vegetarian, hard to find any decent choice (exce rice and beans). They don't customize food per need. Japanese hibachi style restaurant was never available. Waited half hour in line for japanese restaurant reservation but was turned down right after 5 mins the reservation opens (as priv customer can book it by phone..which they do it for everyday and regular customer can only dream about it).

Room smelled disgusting. Air conditioner was horrible. There are much better resorts in punts Cana for the rating this one received. The food was not good either. Nothing but pork for breakfast meat. The only good thing was the staff at the main bar in lobby.

5 Dias muy buenos. La picina, la playa, la comida, Los trabajadores. Todo muy muy bueno!
