There are so many things to love about Ocean Blue. The food is outstanding. Service is great everywhere. The entertainment staff is warm and friendly. They have lost a lot of beach area because of storm damage. It is a bit crowded there. That is no fault of their own and they are doing all they can to rectify it....

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...

Very, very poor beach area, more timeshare and "privilege" reps than bar staff. Cool food on cold plates and night entertainment only three professional show in two weeks, the other days show dancing lasting only 35 minutes. Weather was lovely and basics, rooms and gardens ok. Old hotel is not four star, maybe it was thirty years ago.

We recently stayed at the Ocean Blue and Sands resort. Although there was some beach erosion , the overall vacation was excellant and met all our expections. The service was outstanding especially the concierge service provided by Omar Andres and the waitress service provided every day by Yosapra Guerrero. Omar made sure everything we needed for the twins was available...

This property overall was pretty decent! Big rooms. Clean. I took a group of 30 people and everyone seemed quite happy with the service and the food choices and quality. I had one couple that mentioned it was difficult to get towels no matter how often they had requested them. The grounds were nicely maintained but when it rained...the main...

We booked our second trip 3 weeks ago. Upon arrival at resort, felt like we were home. Right from the outset, we were greeted by a charming concierge, Raul. He took us to our room & said if we needed anything, to contact him directly. He called us half an hour later to make sure the room was to our...
