My husband, and I stayed at this resort from Aug 24-27. It exceeded our expectations. Reading reviews we were thinking twice about staying here and booking elsewhere. When we arrived the gentlemen at the reception helped us out. The staff is amazing and makes you feel welcomed. The rooms are average nothing that really stands out. The beach is amazing.... More

I am a person who travels to Dominican Republic frequently so I have stayed at many many resorts there before. However, my time spent at Ocean Blue and Sand (about 6 days and 5 nights) definitely made the resort bump its way up to my top three favorite resorts of all time. The check in to the resort was easy... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 4 day stay away from our children here. This was our first time vacationing without them, and it was well worth it. The food was good. Many restaurant choices. Depending on which restaurant you went to there was a line--that only became a problem when it rained. However, the various selections were great. The... More

Our time at the Ocean Blue was very enjoyable overall. The pool and gardens were beautiful and the design of the accommodation buildings from the outside was really nice. However, we do have some small niggles. The French restaurant or piano bar didn't allow children. As we were away with our 14 year old daughter, this meant we couldn't go... More

We loved this resort. The size was just perfect. This is actually two resorts in one. Ocean Blue and Ocean Sand. I found that the Ocean Blue section was a little fancier than the Sands section. We were there for two weeks, through our carrier Air Transat. We had contacted the resorts months earlier asking to reserve a room nearer... More

Before we left for our trip... I read a TON of reviews... so I don't want this to be all negative because the resort really was great. We booked the honeymoon suite (which is privilege). It was nice, but I can't say that I will pay the extra thousands of dollars for "privilege" again. The perks that they sell you... More

Wow! Great food, amazing hospitality, beautiful pools. Staff was extremely friendly expecially Alcides and Angel in the breakfast buffet. Always made us laugh and quick with a "how you doing this morning". We were fortunate enough to have privilege and the drinks on the beach were supplied by Marino and they were unbelievably good! Marino's service was spot on and... More

After reading some negative reviews on here I was a bit concerned before we arrived BUT I now think people must have been writing about a different resort. We could not fault this place at all! The facilities are great with loads on offer to keep everybody entertained throughout the day. We particularly enjoyed being able to go bowling and... More

This is a mid range hotel. For the price all food and alcohol was included. They had mid level alcohol, which was better than I expected. There were 7 specialty restaurants. They were decent but nothing fabulous. We also has the chef's dinner which was very nice. The staff were very friendly but most barely spoke English. The pools were... More
