For instance there are fountains throughout the property that are dried out not running. There's a funky ship and helicopter statue in the main pond, really looks out of...

The housekeepers could have been more consistent, when they came it was great but when they didn't it was frustrating. The highlight of the trip was being in challenges and contests, the entertainers always had something planned. There were many amazing entertainers but Elias and Stephanie (I think that's her name) were the best. They were very interactive with everyone...

The resort has been consistently great. There is a variety of restaurants to choose from with amazing wait staff. They are always willing to accommodate your needs and preferences. The rooms were kept clean, and the housekeepers were always around if you needed anything extra. Our favorite part of the trip was the entertainment. There was always something to do,...

Almost everything about the place was great. The downsides are the pool is very cold & the restaurants are hard to get into for dinner - first come, first...

Travelled solo during Dec 21 to Dec 28 - 5th time at this resort.. It's still a fun place but it's starting to look a little tired. Pros - food is decent, pool is nice, lobby area and bar great place for entertainment at night and is a very nice and large space. I love the size of the resort....

My adult daughter and I spent a week at Ocean Blue and Sand from Dec 27-Jan 3/17. We had a wonderful experience! We found our transfer at the airport quickly and, once at the resort, were registered immediately and a bellboy took our luggage to our room, in Building 3. The room was spacious and clean and provided us with...

Our visit to Ocean Blue started well. We made reservations by phone and asked specifically to be placed near friends who were coming. This request was done more than a month before the visit. I asked for a map to get to the place but was only sent one taking me to the airport. Luckily some young boys led us...
