Just returned from 10 days with the family. We had a wonderful time. We occupied 3 rooms in block 3, the rooms are nice - slightly run down. Beds are very comfortable. Food in the Buffet restaurant was consistently good. We also went to Route 66 - Terrible, Sensai - Amazing - a must, Il Mascherati di Venezia - Lovely food & our 2nd favorite Steak House - Tuna Steak was fantastic. All the bars were very good & all staff were helpful and friendly. Mikes Coffee was also great. Ice Cream parlor again very good, but would have been better if it was open earlier that 6pm. Animation team were so entertaining, we all loved them. Pools were lovely & clean, you did have to be an early riser to get a good sunbed (not a problems for us), would be better if stayed open later than 6pm. The beach was nice but there was a problem with sand fleas who seemed to love my daughter so had to stay clear. Gym needs a serious revamp - nothing like the photo - I don't have anything good to say about the gym tbh. I would have liked the opportunity to get coffee pre 6.30am (maybe better coffee machines with milk in the rooms - or machine in foyer). FYI for people who like UK snacks eg crisps & chocolate bring with you as no option to go shopping unless you want to pay resort prices. Oh and if you like a cup of tea bring tea bags with you. All in all the resort and staff were lovely. Thank you for a memorable holiday. Extra note - if you are booking through TUI beware of TUI excursions & make sure you get a receipt for any excursion booked especially if Rodner is still the rep at the hotel who is as useful as a chocolate tea pot!
Best hotel in Punta Cana!!
Best holiday in my life so far. Such a sweet personal Bartenders Cleaners Animation Team etc.. But there is a couple that have my heart that made my Holiday even better Juan the waiter Isabel and Ana from the Ice Cream Shop Kelvin. Natali from the Lobby bar Scooby and Pokemon from the Animation Team and Adreiana from the Italian Restaurant Cristobal from Coffee Shop and Pinky the bird you are the best 💪 Now as the hotel overall the whole staff is amazing, Food is super good and all restaurants are very well made. Nice atmosphere and super clean room everyday! ill see you agian someday for sure!
We stayed for a week, and there are plenty of positives, but also some negatives. Positives: lovely space, big and well laid out grounds, wildlife (flamingo, herons, terrapins, woodpeckers) all around. Good choice of food available and restaurants of a higher standard than many all inclusive hotels. Clean rooms and huge swimming pools. Bowling alleys and pool tables were great to fill time of an evening. Negatives: too much selling on site (hotel staff and vendors they let in - it's annoying), rooms in block 3 are run down and in need of renovation. Poor or zero response to requests for e.g. hand towels and restocking the minibar. I tried twice and gave up. If you go to the buffet at busy times you may struggle to find a mug or plate or someone to serve you water. Overall you'll have a nice holiday here, but the hotel systems/training/management are lacking.
We stayed at the Ocean Blue and Sand in Punta Cana for 2 weeks starting January 13 2023. We went there with our son and daughter in law and two grandsons. We had the Privilege package so we had our own butler. Luis was our butler and he was absolutely amazing. He booked all our excursions and all our dinners. He even got grandson a whole watermelon from off site. All the staff at our resort went above and beyond our expectations. The rooms were beautiful and cool. We boggy boarded, zip lined, did dune buggies and golfed at La Cana Golf and Country Club. Thank you again to Luis our butler. Sorry we couldn’t get you in our suitcase. Highly recommend Ocean Blue and Sand in Punta Cana for your next stay. We will be back. The Campbell family from Lake Cowichan BC Canada.
Best resort ever
I had such a wonderful vacation at the Ocean Blue and Sand! The resort is stunning with an incredible layout. The pools and ocean are gorgeous and the food was delicious but the staff are what made our stay so welcoming! Everyone was so friendly and lovely! Shoutout to Cherry, Morocha, Scooby Do, Mini Cooper and Marvin! But Pokémon is the absolute BEST & brought so much joy everywhere he went!!!! I was always so happy to see him!! Thank you everyone for making our stay so heavenly!! 🥰
