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
  • Dee S : Norwich, United Kingdom

We stayed here in October 2015 for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. The staff were fantastic, helpful and polite. They were always on hand if ever needed.The food in the buffet area was amazing, so much choice. The restaurants were lovely, we especially loved the steak house. Not so keen on the Mexican restaurant as we didn't find much flavour in the food but this was personal choice. The swimming area and facilities were always clean and tidy. It was a shame to see so much of the beach being corroded whilst we were there but it was still created a beautiful scenery. We went on quite a few excursions, our favourite as to be swimming with dolphins. This was such good experience and was lovely to see them being looked after. Saona Catamaran was incredible, the whole day was amazing and it helped us to see some of the island. Doctor Fish was also very good, relaxing and the massages were heavenly. Outback Safari was also a good day out, we visited locals and learned more about the culture. The best thing for us was the spa, we booked a last minute deal the day before we were due to leave. This was the couples romantic package, which included candlelit dinner, massages and Jacuzzi. Honestly, words can't describe how special this was. This actually made our honeymoon. The massages were incredible, both myself and my husband thoroughly enjoyed them. The staff made you feel so relaxed and comfortable. In the evening, we had our very own waitress who served us for the whole evening, we decided to have the lobster. This was out of this world. We are experienced travellers but to date we have tasted nothing like this one, the flavours and presentation of the food was brilliant. Credit to the chef. This has to be one of the best memories for us. So thank you. The only negative we had about the hotel, was the H10 staff hassling to speak about timeshares etc, this got a little tedious after a while. But other than that, overall absolutely fantastic.

The best family vacation of 2016

Ocean blue and sands has been one of the most memorable vacations for my family thus far. We were a group of 15 and the employees are beyond professional but yet the most welcoming staff that we've ever encountered. A great appreciation goes to Juan Ramon, Super Juan, Willy Wonka, Mini Me and William for making us feel at home at all times and treating us like family. We traveled outside the country for the 1st time this year with a 10 month old child and they were extremely playful and surprisingly the baby was beyond comfortable and happy when they came around. THANK YOU GUYS SOOOO MUCH FOR WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST MEMORABLE AND FUN FAMILY VACATION FOR US !!

Some people want champagne deals for lemonade prices!!!!

For the deal we had with Thomson, this holiday was fantastic!! Honestly, I've read loads of reviews before booking.....................and it really makes you wonder 'What on earth do people want for the money they pay??'..............Spent two weeks in paradise, room was fab, looking on to the adjoining rain forest with wildlife galore and locals back and for ( block 8 ) Didn't eat in one of the speciality restaurants once - no need, the themed nights in the buffet every night was fab - have what you want in what quantity you want. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was everything and anything you could wish for. H10 never bothered us once, market sellers - no bother.............and don't even get started on the locals coming in on the weekends - they are far better behaved than some of the English clientele let me tell you!!! The Ocean Blue and Sand beach is eroding before your very eyes which is unfortunate, but I'm sure they are doing their best to rectify it - go around the corner left or right and you have the ultimate Caribbean beach. Went on a day trip to Catalina Island with Pelicana Water Sports.............fab day out and good Scuba diving ( poor visibility on other dives ) It is a rather big resort, but not too big to WALK around from room to restaurant to pool to beach............honestly, it is the fatties you see taking the golf carts - sorry but true ) We have had a wonderful holiday, met lovely people and made memories to treasure

Oh my days!

Oh my days, I've just come to review something else and this place come up and I realised I never left a review for it as I joined TA after. I went in Aug 2013, had the best time, ate in the themed restaurants every night they were great especially the Italian. The people selling the premium drinks are pushy but I was just pushy back! Got engaged here too! Will definitely be back!
