This was a great trip for groups. We had a group of 18 and it turned out to be perfect. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The pools are huge and there are plenty of chairs for everyone.

We went to the Ocean Blue as guests of a destination wedding with a large group. Being with a group at this resort definitely makes it fun. The wedding on the beach was delightful and fun but when they brought us to the reception the staff was rude to us because the banquet room was not ready yet, we were... More

Me and my friend went here for vacation. The staff was amazing and very helpful. The entertainers made our stay so fun and enjoyable! Especially Mawdeen, Ruben, Willy Wanka and Jack Michael. They are amazing people and put on a great show every night. We would most definitely come back and stay here!

Stayed at the Ocean Blue and Sand May 23-27 and enjoyed every day of it! The staff were all courteous and there was always something to do. The room was nice and cleaned everyday. Stayed in 4324 which was a pool view room. One knock on cleaning is the lack of washcloths as mentioned in previous posts. They left one... More

We have visited the Dominican 3 times and this resort was average. The resort is clean, maintained with 2 pools and has a BBQ on the beach which was a nice change! There are stairs to get to the beach as the land was affected from a hurricane. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable. The restaurants were a variety of... More
