The Ocean Blue Punta Cana is a resort that makes up the Ocean Resort suites in the Punta Cana resort strip. Guests who stay in this resort are guaranteed to have a very pleasant stay. The staff are incredibly accommodating and attentive. Many of the staff members are genuinely concerned with the experience of your stay, and try their best to accommodate your needs. The buffet restaurants are always replenished and the food is always fresh. The a la carte restaurants are fairly good as well. However, the service tends to be a bit slower in these restaurants than others. Great little coffee shop that's available in the resort as well.
We arrived at this hotel 4th July 2017 booked with Thomson or TUI as its now known.First impressions of the reception are good, welcome drink and porters to collect your bags who expect a tip for their services maybe a few $'s.They also deliver your cases to your room which is nice after a long flight.We had Two adjoining rooms due to bringing our teenage kids with us, the rooms seem ok, clean but a little basic. Smelled Musty but to be expected in tropics.Mini bar was very basic and to be fair i expected a little more than we got.Beach is very eroded which is not the hotels fault but if your looking for a paradise beach maybe think again.The food at all the restaurants was very good, the buffet always had lots on offer and was not repetitive. However, the themed restaurants are a nightmare if like me you don't eat until after 8 pm. You have to be there queuing by 6 pm to be guaranteed a seat, i'm on holiday i don't want to queue for food !!!The pools are very good and the all inclusive drinks selection is very good. you need to get to the pool early to make sure you get an umbrella, why there was a shortage of them in such a hot country is beyond me.The biggest issue at this hotel and it is big is the pressure selling of the H10 premium timeshare. You will spend half a day being passed from salesman to salesman with increasing pressure selling tactics, telling me how i can go to any H10 hotel around the world for next to nothing, Ye ye ye. Little did they know i am a sales director for a global corporation so know pretty much every trick in the book. I found it highly amusing watching them get annoyed with me for not playing ball.The final straw was saying to what i can only think was there best salesperson Thanks but not interested and offering my hand to shake as we got up to leave got left hanging as he just turned his back on me and walked off.Please H10 look into this method of selling and retrain.All in all we had a nice holiday but did not deserve a more than average rating.I think and know there are better hotels to go to in DR and would not return to this one
Just want to say thanks to the entertainment guys who made my staying a lot more fun!! These guys are just crazyyy!! I didnt got to remember their names... but they were always there doing smt... i also enjoyed the food and the drinks... ohh the drinks... i cant talk about drinks and not holla the bartenders!! Them guys are special! I must come back.
8 nights as a couple with 2 children under 8. Our first trip to this area in DR. We stayed on resort and had a "lazy" vacation. So if you are looking for high-end, luxury, exclusivity, and want to count the minutes between meals and drinks because of how impressive the experience is, then skip Ocean Blue & Sand. However, if you are looking for an exceptional value, in a modest room that you just plan to sleep in, with ample (meh) food options, with generally kind staff, with exceptionally enjoyable entertainment, then this is an excellent deal. Also be aware as you head to the beach you will find several partially submerged barriers that are designed to reduce beach erosion. They are somewhat unsightly, but do not pose real issues and are a home for a great variety of small crabs. The only particularly unattractive element is the request for you to participate in a timeshare meeting, but if you give a firm and respectful no, that can be put to rest, unless of course you are truly interested or would like some freebies for an hour of your time. At this time, I am not sure that we would return to this specific location, but we would definitely consider it. Again, the value is rather exceptional for an all-inclusive vacation experience.
We had a great time. With privilege service, we had reservations to all the restaurants, especially the steak place which was handy for a party of 10. The Japanese restaurant was incredible. We ate there twice. The staff was very friendly and accommodating from housekeeping to the bartenders and chefs. It was relaxing and just a wonderful experience.
This was our 9th trip and we had a great vacation as always! The staff is fantastic! Thank you to Wilfredo at H10, Oscar in the buffet dinning room, Josue Mota who made great omelets each day, Vladimir at the pool bar, Edwin and others at the Lobby bar, and all other staff members helped to make our stay wonderful! Looking forward to seeing everyone next year!
