This was my first experience at an all-inclusive resort and I was not disappointed. The resort is well kept, seemingly safe, staff is helpful and friendly, rooms were nicely appointed and housekeeping did a good job each day. A la carte restaurants offered tasty options each evening and the breakfast buffet was nice - even had mimosas! Everything is within...

Spend 6 days and found it relaxing. Great Family location with hourly activities. Staff was very welcoming. Smaller beach area, but sand and sun made up for that. 5 different restaurants plus two different buffet.

Why wouldn't we recommend it? A) We stayed at the hotel for one week. 1 day, no electricity 1 day, no water 2 days, no phone B) As soon as we arrived, our concierge Yomaira offered us a welcome breakfast, stupidly we accept thinking it was such a nice gesture...the "welcome breakfast" ended up being a 2 hours sale call...

I didn't actually stay at this resort, but I took a wrong turn and was lost in Bavaro, speaking very little Spanish. A couple of very nice employees of the resort helped me make a local phone call (my cell phone didn't work there), offered me free refreshments, and were overall very hospitable until someone came to pick me up....

One of the best vacations we've had. Beautiful and clean resort. Lots of walking though, but we don't mind that. There's a shuttle you can wait for at various points. We travelled here at least 5 years ago and been to at least 10 other resorts since, but we still come back to our memories here.

This was our first time at Ocean Blue and Sand and we were not disappointed. Check in and out went very fast. Raul took us to our room and showed us around on the way which was very nice.
