Tropical all-inclusive Punta Cana resort lures with leisure activities
Tropically colored buildings and swaying palms paint the scene of paradise at Ocean Blue Golf and Beach Resort, which is steps from the White Sands Golf Course. The kid-friendly, all-suite property attracts leisure travelers with 374 rooms decorated with island style and British Colonial-inspired furniture. A heavy roster of leisure activities -- like scuba lessons and bowling -- complements the many bars and restaurants on site.
Highlights
  • Multiple leisure activities, from bow and arrow to bowling
  • Seven a la carte restaurants, two buffets and 10 bars
  • All-suite tropical hotel with air conditioning and balconies
  • Walking distance to White Sands Golf Course
Rooms
Ocean Blue Golf and Beach Resort  rooms evoke breezy tropical d├ęcor driven by bright colors, palm prints and British Colonial furniture. All 374 rooms are air conditioned suites equipped with welcome conveniences like marble bathrooms with double sinks, a mini-refrigerator filled with sodas and balcony for taking in views of the lush grounds. Guests rest on one king or two double beds topped with patterned bedding. An in-room Jacuzzi furthers the luxury. Walls sport an island motif with vibrant colors like aqua or salmon and coastal-themed artwork.
Features
Recreation
A dedicated entertainment staff keeps the itinerary busy all day long at Ocean Blue Golf and Beach Resort. Guests might take a scuba diving lesson in the pool, play beach volleyball or water polo or learn how to maneuver a bow and arrow. Theme parties keep the mood festive, while off-site excursions like catamaran expeditions and snorkeling tours cater to thrill seekers. The hotel also invites patrons to go wall climbing or bowling (at a maximum of one hour of play per room).
Dining
Diners indulge in diverse fare at the seven a la carte restaurants and two buffets at Ocean Blue Golf and Beach Resort. La Casa de mi abuela and La Casa Caribbean Grill plate up local dishes, while La Tortuga is a staple for the all-day buffet. Some eateries come with an extra dose of ambiance, from Arenal Beach Restaurant and Snack Bar to reservations required-Bucareno, a seafood boite right on the beach. Ten bars -- including a swim-up bar -- fuel the tropical scene.

Family vacation

The resort was awesome , it was a little bit like a little town . The employees where great but they favored people more who knew how to speak Spanish but over all the food was great and so was the resort.

Lone Woman Had a Blast

I went alone to Ocean Blue & Sand and it was the best experience of my life- mostly because the staff made it so no one really felt alone. Every single day, they would greet you with enthusiasm and accomodate you with anything that you needed. The environment overall was full of energy and life, and plenty of entertainment around. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a vibrant resort experience, not for those looking for a more pretentious atmosphere.

Great family vacation

This is the second time to Ocean Blue and Sand. First time my husband and I went by ourselves and loved the place so much, decided to bring the entire family.Everyone was very pleasant and helpful to all our needs. The place was kept very clean and the food was pretty good. Lots of variety of food, drink and entertainment. The beach was beautiful with many activities to do for free. Would go there again.

Couples Getaway

This was our first visit to DR and the experience was amazing ! My boyfriend and I stayed in Villa 7 which was very close to the lobby ,pool and Buffett with an amazing view from the balcony and much needed privacy . The staff members were pleasant ,welcoming and timely with request . Vendors were very passionate to sell which became a bit overwhelming but were respectful with declines . Drinks were great (especially from the lobby bar ) and overall the resort had just enough to get into without paying for excursions . Great first vacation with significant other !

Dining tip: Not Applicable

The only thing I would recommend is for a major update on their welcome information guide .Many of the restaurants were closed unexpectedly two nights out of our stay and one listed restaurant "La Casa De Mi Abuela" the only restaurant listed with a Dominican menu no longer exist (this was discovered after a scavenger hunt for it ). Plan dining in advance and ask questions ! It sucks to walk from the lobby to La Cana ( the beach's restaurant ) only to find contrary to the listed hours it is closed .

Nice Stay

We were only for 2 days and although our room was finished by 5pm instead of 3pm, we did enjoy our stay, specially the rooms which have been updated and are very nice. Also the food is great and the restaurants have interesting options and quality food. Staff is great and were able to help once we let them know the inconveniencies we had. Hope to be back soon.

stayed 4/25 to 4/30/2014

Overall this was a very good resort experience. I tried most of the restaurants and all were good to very good. Understand though that it is not American cooking, its Dominican cooking even if its an American hamburger so things to taste a bit different than in the USA. The room was always clean and well stocked. The staff was very attentive. My only complaint was on the last of my five nights there, the wifi in the Privilege section where I was not working and I had to use the lobby wifi which was totally overloaded. That was very frustrating as email was the only way I could communicate with people in the US. The resort said they were upgrading the Wifi--a good manager would do the Upgrade and then switch, not take the current wifi down and then upgrade,

DO NOT buy anything from the vendors on the beach! They are aggressive and you will NOT get a good deal. also take lots of small US bills, forget the $100 bills, change is difficult to get.

Relaxing getaway

My boyfriend, his family and I had a great time!! The staff were very friendly and did everything to make our stay great. There was plenty for us to do as a family but there was also places for quiet and romance. The breakfast was great, especially the freshly squeezed orange juice. However, the lunch buffet near the beach could have been a little better. Overall my stay was great, clean room, friendly staff and beautiful beach and weather

Would stay again

The resort is large and beautiful; the staff is very friendly. I chose all inclusive because there were 7 of us with 4 being 17-20 years old. The only negative was the food not being all that great, but I expected that for the price and it being all-inclusive. Beautiful resort, nice rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff, felt safe.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

They have a free bus to take you to shopping. You can buy the same things they sell on the beach for a much cheaper price. The bus is air-conditioned and you shop for approximately 2 hours.
