Our Opinion

The Ocean Sand 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.

The delightful Ocean Sand Resort is an all junior suite resort featuring an impressive nine restaurants (including Route 66), ten bars featuring premium drinks, and a huge array of sports such as bowling and a climbing wall. Connecting rooms are perfect for families, and kids and teens will have a blast at their own clubs within the resort.

Location: On the beach, 45 min to Higuey, 20 min from the airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Melissa E : Mentor, Ohio

My husband visited Ocean Blue and Sand this past month. We were there to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. Long story short, this hotel is amazing! We did stay in a privilege suite and we did tip the maid daily (about $5 US currency) and our room was ALWAYS CLEAN. And I don't think the tipping made our room clean. We got some perks by tipping such as a towel made into a swan, flowers left in our bathroom, on our bed, turn down service (part of our package) our mini fridge stocked daily and our robes always folded. The food is amazing on this resort minus the steak house. My husband and I both ordered the strip steak and over half of it was a solid line of fat. We had a few hick-ups our first night but they were taken care of right away. This resort is huge with so much to see and enjoy visually! Our room was right in front of the pool which always had some sort of entertainment between 2-4 pm. Both pools are HUGE with a swim up bar. We booked through Apple Vacations so any questions we had/issues were taken care of. This resort is large, beautiful, clean, the staff is friendly, food is good, bartenders have a TON of personality and a very relaxing atmosphere. My husband and I have friends that have stayed at this resort 5 times (and will make their 6 visit in January of 2018) which was very helpful. We had a great time, very impressed with the resort, very happy with the cost of our trip and can't thank the staff enough for being so awesome! Shout out to Alexander (sexy black) for being so entertaining, nice, attentive and fun. When my husband and I decide to come back to Punta Cana, this will be our resort of choice! Keep up the good work!

Entertainment: - Wilfre Cherry (aka Baby Black), Superman, and Sarah were great entertainers! They were more than just the staff; they became our friends who made us laugh at everything constantly. Wilfré asked us how we were doing and came to talk to me and my family at the beach every day. We all had hilarious conversations and got to know him beyond an activities entertainer; he hosted game activities and even water aerobics. ¡Muy excelente! - The magic show at the showtime theatre was amazing, and the games before the show were funny.Services:- The maid was very thorough and very kind, saying hello to me every morning. - The waiters were great, coming over constantly to make sure everything was good, asking us how we were doing, and ensuring we had a great day. Alfonso became someone I looked forward to seeing in the morning to pour my daily morning coffee while I studied in the restaurant :)

Ocean Blue

This resort was one of the more calm and relaxing ones. We've been to a resort almost every year for ten years. So some setbacks was that the wifi was patchy but that could be good because it forces you to enjoy what's in front of you. What was just okay was the food - not the best best food and slightlyyyy worse that the other resorts. Also didn't like the night shows so just don't go to the random dancing ones but the magic show was AMAZING. That one show was the best show I've seen in all the resorts. Okay positives were the entertainment dancers and how polite and sweet they were. Especially this particular guy named Wilfre Cherry. All the waiters and everyone very kind and trustworthy. Wilfre encouraged us to participate in the games and activities and we usually don't like that because sometimes we're lazy but he made it fun and different. They work so hard every day to provide activities at all times of the day and on time too. They keep their energy levels so high I don't know how they do it but they are out there in the sun every day with smiles.
