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
  • NicNac169 :

Had a great time. The food was really good, the drinks were great, and the staff was so much fun, they have top notch people working there. Loved the first come first serve restaurant policy, I hate having to make reservations. The entertainment was pretty good and always a lot of different things going on.We were in a basic room so the room itself was just ok.The beach is washing away so they have breakers in the water to help stop the erosion which isn't very scenic but understandable.Sersiously great staff at Ocean Blue.Thank you

2nd time here!!!

My wife and I got married here in 2014. It was a fantastic ride. This was our second time, with both times being in the privilege section. Love the private beach and breakfast spot. Bartenders are awesome, especially Sexy Black.

2nd time at Ocean Blue and we have been really disappointed. Whilst the overall resort is still good, changes made since our last visit have marred our stay. Unless you are privilege guests you can't get in to any of the speciality restaurants (we only managed to get in to the Italian and steak house because we complained loudly) and the staff are not bothered. The British get different coloured bands (nobody could give a reason why) and therefore appear to be treated much differently. Service in certain areas is appalling (despite tipping) - one evening we even had to set our own table in the dining room and on another occasion had to search for a waiter to ask for water. The Thomson rep is rubbish and only appears interested in himself - at our welcome meeting he only wanted to push trips where alcohol was unlimited, told us how much he was paid every month and that we should give anything we weren't taking home we should give to him. He also told us that reservations could be made in the speciality restaurants which is not true unless you are privilege customers. Overall we had a good holiday but would not return to Ocean Blue and sadly cannot recommend the hotel to anybody else.

Disappointing Stay

We checked in on Nov-30th and was greeted by TEO who escorted us to our room. He told us that he have schedule a VIP breakfast for us to meet with his boss on the Friday. The VIP breakfast turned out to be nothing more then them trying to sell us timeshare. The whole thing took 4hrs which was a complete waste of our time as we had to interest in this resort or timeshare.We moved rooms on the second day as we wanted a king bed but was given 2 singles. Our new room while cleaner and had a better view, did not have working WiFi connection, phone, safe and TV did not work as well. When we told them about this at the VIP breakfast, we were told the only way to avoid this and other surprises was to join their privilege membership which is a JOKE. These are basic amenities that should be working any room!The resort has 8 restaurants; however not all of them was open on the same night. It was very confusing trying to figure out which restaurants will be open on which day as we could not find a schedule, therefore it felt very random when which one restaurant opens and closes. The food was also nothing special. We stayed at the Moon Palace in Cancun last year and this resort fail in comparison. The rooms are very dated needs to be renovated. In conclusion - for a little more money, I would stay somewhere else if returning to Punta Cana. We stayed in room 9123 and 3202.

Ocean Blue, 3.5 av 5

The best thing about the hotel was the food, Fresh food every day.cleaning itself was good but the cleaning girl I had, took the first day 5 dollars that I had left in my room, which was a bit annoying but our guide told us afterwards that they expect a tip.one thing i noticed was that they didnt always fill the mini bar every day with beer, pepsi and sprite, as it was promised.One day when I came back to the room and had taken a shower and would comb my hair, I could see that my brush had been used by the cleaning lady (I'm blonde and there was black hairs in the brush)In general the entire stay very pleasant until those last three days when one of the employees asked me for a review, so I went along with it but as soon as i said i cant comfirm the email from the website until i get home again since i added my work mail, he became very rude and didnt show good manners afterwards.i wouldnt recomend this hotel for anyone in the twenties since they only had one night "club" and there was alot of couple in there so hitting on people became a challenge.3.5 / 5
