Visited this resort in April with my family and another family. Beautiful layout, rooms were clean, pool area nice. The food was very good and being able to hop from one restaurant to another was a really nice feature (not sure we were allowed but we did!). But overall, the resort does have some issues. The beggars/sales locals that they...

The staff was above and beyond meeting each need quickly. The property is well maintained. The food was average to good. The beach took a hit due to erosion. As 'Privledge'', we had access to making dinner reservations upon arrival to the resort, avoiding an average 45 minute wait for those that were not Privledge. Would have liked to been...

My wife and I went with some family friends for a week and really had a great time, I would recommend it to anyone. We went with the privilege package and it was well worth it, Unbelievable service between Marino on the beach and Alexander in the main lobby bar you will never find better service anywhere.

Great destination, staff are all very welcoming and the resort is clean. Coffee shop is amazing as are all the other al la carte resturants . Lots of trips to do nearby if you want a day off resort, its got a lot going on so you might not need to.

The entertainment staff was super fun Cheyni and "black coffee" were always so nice and always had a smile on their face. Food was really good and there was always something fun to do. We have been to this property twice and have had a good time at each stay. Very good value! 🍹😂🍻🏖💦☀️🌴

First trip to Bavaro/Punta Cana/DR. Stayed for a week as a solo vacationer and enjoyed my visit. I recommend Ocean Blue & Sand and would visit again if traveling as a family, a group, or as a couple. Researched 60 or so resorts before settling on this one. Arrived in the afternoon and was helped with check-in relatively quickly. Enjoyed...
