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.


Overview
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 A :
Great resort with an amazing staff

Stayed here for a week and don't have many complaints. Pools are large and very warm water! Each has a swim up bar with great bartenders​. One was more lively than the other as it was closer to the afternoon activities of dance lessons and games. Beach was ok. Had large structures that looked like sand bags or beached whales! Was told the beach was damaged over the winter and they are trying to build it back up. Sand was soft, water was warm and clear with some seaweed and grass. Very shallow at low tide so it was great for hanging out. Some fish but not great for snorkeling. Lots of beach chairs and a good amount of umbrellas at both the pool and beach. Food was delicious. Different them at the buffet every night. Not for picky eaters although ours found something every day. Breakfast had alot of variety. Omelette station and also eggs cooked to order. We ate lunch mostly at buffet on beach which is smaller but still good. Only tried one of the restaurants and it was ok. Liked the variety the buffet provided as we got to try many different things. Staff was beyond amazing. Very fun and engaging. On top of what you needed, making sure everything was good. Fridge was always stocked and towels replenished. Chocolates on the bed at night. Always leaving flowers around the room. Resort was very quiet at night. Sports Bar is open late and was very fun. Only place that served food late night, other than room service. Martire was the best bartender we had! Shows at night were entertaining with a different them each night. Very low​ key resort, not a party atmosphere.

Punta Cana Vacation

Overall excellent experience! Food was great with a wide variety, staff is fun and provides good entertainment. Air conditioned rooms and stocked fridge. Very big resort so plan on walking a lot. Only negative of the trip was huge sand bags on the beach and in the water ruin the view. Favorite entertainers were papa chulio, mini me and super man!

  • Manuel A :
The paradise

I was here for only a couple days, however I full enjoyed. Definitely good service, delicious food, and the bars, I couldn't get a reservation for the Japonés restaurant because everyday was packed, but it didn't matter, the buffet was the best a plenty variety of food. They have huge pools and a machine that makes a lot fo foam this latter made feel like I was in the jacuzzi.

Just what we were looking for.

Pros- everything restaurants,property, pools, and staff. Cons- They don't give you face towels daily.The furniture was stained, so we used towels to sit on. The buffet cold items wasn't maintained really not good, and I wouldn't eat cold items off the buffet. The beach area was small and not maintain, and the other hotels had a tractor to clean the beach area. Internet was poor, but I did not need it.

Amazing vacation

I had an amazing time with my friends here. It was so beautiful and so much to do. The best part was the entertainment and how friendly they were, they made the resort live. The entertainment crew Black Coffee, Papi Chulo, Danny and Superman were so funny and fun to be around. There was so much food to choose from and many restaurant options, which was great. Wouldn't mind going back again.
