I just returned from a week long vacation from Ocean Blue & Sand Resort and it was absolutely amazing. Everything from the gorgeous beaches, very accommodating staff and delicious food, left me in awe.

The entertainment staff is fantastic. From 10am till 6 am it's fun for all kids and adults. Minimy, jack, willywonka, charley brown, Juan Ramon, Alberto, and superman are the best entertainers I've ever been around. The food was good. Many choices and options for food and drink.

The bar staff is really friendly (shout out to Henrry, Vladmir, Alexander and Albel) the rooms and resort are really clean and well kept. The animation staff kept the... More

We had a spectacular time. The resort in good but the people are awesome. We would recommend Ocean Blue. The outstanding people that went the extra step include Carmen Santana, Natalie and Aleandro. These three were awesome. We will be back again just to see them. Thank you

The rooms are not very clean, the drains do not drain, the rooms are not sound proof at all and the beds are very hard. The food was pretty good but the other issues were so hard to deal with and the lack of sleep makes you pretty grumpy. The staff is slow and there are very few that can... More

The resort and beach were beautiful. The service was excellent, even though many employees spoke very little English. The language barrier was not an issue however, as staff is still very friendly and meticulous when it comes to providing you with proper service. The food was delicious and always served fresh, especially the fruit. La Tortuga (the buffet) was such... More
