Just got back from a seven day stay. My wife and I are seasoned travellers. I have great heartburn understanding how this "so called" resort is rated more than a 2 on Trip Advisor. I am even more skeptical about the basis of this resorts ranking on Trip Advisor, based on the negative comments of other families and folks stated... More

The resort is absolutely beautiful, the restaurants are great (Blue Moon was our favorite...the food was fantastic and the staff were the friendliest by far!), the buffet is pretty good (lots of choices so you can find something you'll like), and the pools are huge and well kept. If you want a chair at the pool get out early. It... More

Stayed here for my wedding with 25 people in our party. The resort is amazing not too big that you can't walk around the grounds but big enough that you don't feel crowded by other guests. The resort was full when we stayed there and we had no problem getting chairs by the pool and no problems getting reservations at... More

Second year at Ocean Blue supervising a group with high school seniors. Adults upgraded to Privilege and kids did regular rooms. Perfect compromise. Resort big enough to get freedom and space but small enough if you want to locate someone quickly. Do bring your own insulated cups to keep drinks cold. Food is fine at buffets, better at restaurants. Service... More

Several families went to Punta Cana for Spring Break in March 2014. From the day we checked in until the day we left it was a bad experience. Day 1 a kids backpack was stolen from the pool area (had his I-Phone and wallet) - a woman supposedly "purchased" the backpack at a gas station 20 minutes away from the... More

Had a wonderful time at this hotel. Rooms were clean. Food was excellent. Pool and beach were perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful. The entertainment staff were so upbeat and worked hard to ensure guests had a great time. Juan from the animation staff was amazing and helpful. Sexy Black from the lobby bar was entertaining. Would return. It... More

This trip was for 2 Moms & 2 Teen Daughters. We looked for a reasonably priced vacation and I believe we found it here at Ocean Blue & Sand! When you're booking a budget friendly vacation you have to keep your expectations within reason, if you do I think this place will be a winner. We did not go Privilege,... More

This hotel is a rip off! We just returned from an 8 night stay and I don't miss it at all. The food is terrible, the decor is cheap, tacky, and filthy, most of the staff is rude, and they do NOT want to hear about any problems. We complained once about something that happened and they basically told us... More
