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...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 November 2016

This was my first experience at an all-inclusive resort and I was not disappointed. The resort is well kept, seemingly safe, staff is helpful and friendly, rooms were nicely appointed and housekeeping did a good job each day. A la carte restaurants offered tasty options each evening and the breakfast buffet was nice - even had mimosas! Everything is within...

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...

This was my first time visiting the Dominican Republic and Ocean Blue and Sand served as a nice introduction. The rooms were quaint nothing over the top. I personally didn't feel the AC as much as I would have liked but I spent most of my time outside the room by the pool or swimming in the stretch of beach...

Large resort = lots of walking. We never figured out the little shuttle schedule, we just toughed it out. Restaurants closed on different days and had painfully slow service but most were really good. The hibachi was great! The chef had me put on his hat and fling food to my boyfriend plus they have everyone sing HBD to me....

We traveled to this resort 5/14-5/21 and it was average, at best. Yes, there was sun, a pool, sand and drinks, which made it a fine vacation, however if you're looking for somewhere nice to stay, this isn't it. I've stayed at over 15 all-inclusive resorts and this has been my least favorite by far. Food - Buffet and restaurants...

If I follow my previous reviews, this was my 8th trip to Ocean Blue and Sand. While reading updated reviews before I left I was quite nervous as it had been 16 months since I had been here and people were very critical. The repair to the beach had been done since my last visit and while I will agree...

We arrived to sunshine and the welcome at the hotel was good. They were very efficent our room was allocated after an half hour wait and the staff took our luggage to the room without us asking. The room was very nicely appointed with fantastic views over the pools and the sea to the side. We loved the Jacuzzi bath...
