The Ocean Blue Punta Cana Golf and Beach Resort is part of a complex combined with the Ocean Sand Resort. The 2 resorts combined have a total of approximately 700 rooms.
The Ocean Blue alone has 374 rooms which makes it a small hotel. Both resort are parts of the same area which encompass this 4.5 star hotel. You must know that the area around this resort is immense and walking huge distances can be a pretty common thing everyday. There are this little trolley-cars that pass by every couple of minutes, which can help cover those long distances but sometimes they won’t appear when needed; so don’t hold your breath. The orientation for this resort is mostly toward families with children and romantic couples.

The overall service is
good as the staff in most
Punta Cana resorts are very hard workers. The
grounds look very well taken care of and the rooms look clean enough.
The normal junior suite at
the Ocean Blue Punta Cana will accommodate a family of 4 or 5 adults
max. The equipment included is: 2 queen beds or 1 king size
bed, sofa bed, air conditioner, mini fridge, satellite TV, safe,
bathroom with jacuzzi, and balcony. The deluxe junior suite have better
benefits like: all from the junior plus 1 free dinner to Bucanero
or El bodegon restaurant, 30
minutes massage per adult per stay, 30 minutes of horseback riding per
person per stay, and VIP Bracelets. Also with the elite club
upgrade you receive 24 hour room service,
1 hour of free motor water sport and
more. The rooms around here are pretty big particularly if you pay for
the deluxe suites.
There are 2 pools at the Ocean Blue Punta Cana this resort both of them have swim-up bar and 2 jacuzzis that are part of it was well. The huge pools are decorated with fountains inside of it which gives them a touch of majestic shower. The usual chairs all around of it are found, which must be saved as in the normal resorts with a towel.
The snow white sands
for miles and some towering palms gives this beach a great touch. One
of the disadvantages is that there is no much shade in this beach with
just a few palms and small amount of umbrellas.
The place got some nice waves, even when they are not super great they
can satisfy the water sports beginners.
The Ocean Blue Punta Cana resort doesn’t get left behind in terms of food.
The place has 9 restaurants which means many choices to eat.
La casa de mi abuela (Dominican cuisine), Route 66 (American dinner, life size figures of some American celebrities), Arenal beach restaurant (buffet for lunch and snacks).
Also I Mascherati Di Venezia (Italian food), La Tortuga (main buffet open breakfast, lunch and dinner), Margarita (Mexican restaurant), La Brasa (Caribbean grill, on the beach).
For the breakfast you are pretty much stuck with the buffet in which the food is not bad at all but is important that you get to it early or you will have to be happy with the food being slightly cold and pretty much the leftovers.
At lunch you can eat in the main buffet again or at the beach restaurant.
Some might go with the buffet but since the meals in there are similar for lunch and dinner; others eat at the a la carte restaurants in the evening. Like in every resort in Punta Cana the dinner seems to be the ideal meal time, mainly because of the many options available.
restaurant) and El Bodegon
are some extra choices but they require an extra fee for
their use. The other restaurants at the Ocean Blue Punta Cana are
beyond great, primarily because you can eat in the a la carte
restaurants without a reservation. The Italian and Mexican are my
favorites because of their: fantastic service, beautiful
place, hot and tasty food;
can’t get better than this. Fortunately for you most of the restaurants
are near the lobby area of the hotel, so even with the humongous size
of this resort you will be able to find the restaurants at least.
Between the many things to do offered at the Ocean Blue Punta Cana, you can pick: aerobics, nautilus equipment, sauna, bicycles, windsurf, and snorkeling. Also sports like: volleyball, archery, rock climbing, and basketball. All the previous mentioned are part of the all inclusive package, the next group of activities require an extra fee. White sand golf (around 75 US dollars for 9 holes), fishing, sunfish sailing, scuba diving, motorboats, waterskiing, horseback riding, massage, spa, and facials.
There is a lot of fun
for the kids at the Ocean Blue Punta Cana. This resort has a
children’s club from ages 4 to 12 and a teen
club for ages 13 to 17. In the night the shows
are one of the greatest part of it, they usually start like 9 pm. This
resort has some quiet atmosphere during the night; so if you are a
party person this place is not what you are looking for, but
during the day it seems to be pretty active.
