Great beach & pools with plenty of lounge chairs. Chef Jose Manuel Costillo is awesome and he was happy to cater to our dietary needs! Sexy Black at the lobby bar is the best bartender - ask for him.Our room was kept clean daily by Kenia Garcia who always added a personal touch with flowers. If you're there on a... More

This was our first time visiting the Dominican Republic and our first stay with Ocean Blue and Sand. The resort is beautiful, the food was delicious with a TON of variety, and the staff was incredible! Our week long stay would not have been the same without Juan Ramon and Miguelina.

No other hotel has an entertainment team like Ocean Blue. That's why Ocean Blue is our favorite hotel in Punta Cana and we keep going back. Candyman, Mini Me, and Willy Wonka will be the best friends you could ever ask for in the week that you are there. I couldn't imagine going to any hotel without those guys!

My wife and I had a wonderful time over the Easter Holiday! The rooms are clean, food was average but it's an all inclusive, Staff was very helpful, weather was fantastic, beach front was very clean and spacious, I even bought an RCI/ H10 vacation membership while I was there! Definitely will be back!

I've been to Ocean Blue and Sand a few times over the past two years. So, it's obvious I'm a fan. Here are some of my tips: -take a taxi from the airport. It's $35 but it's so nice to check in before the shuttles. Ask the rate before you get into any taxi and make sure it's what is... More

This hotel is not a luxury one, but it's a really good overall resort. Food is good, they have a coffee house, a bowling ally and sports bar, so if it's rain there's plenty of stuff to do unlike other resorts. Staff and animation is the strongest point here. I like to thank Charlie Brown, Scooby Doo, DJ Joel from... More
