Resort Profile

With impressive kids and teens clubs and an interactive, fun atmosphere, Ocean Blue & Sand caters well to families; with a +4 TripValue, it’s one of Punta Cana’s best bargains. The beach isn’t quite as strong here as it is at most resorts in Punta Cana (it’s somewhat cramped and eroded, with packed-in lounge chairs), the grounds can be crowded and loud, most rooms don’t have ocean views, aggressive timeshare sales pitches can annoy, and some restaurants fill up quickly (while others require long pants for men); but the resort offers two spacious swimming pools, an on-site casino, a PADI dive center, a bowling alley (which is unique), and excellent on-site restaurant variety. The food isn’t incredible, but it’s fairly good for a Dominican all-inclusive. The rooms are appropriate for the price range; they come with attractive furnishings, mostly blue and white accents, private balconies or terraces, and flat-screen TVs. Some have four-poster beds. Upgrading to Privilege rooms includes butler service, access to a private beach and lounge, welcome gifts, room service including breakfast in bed, a welcome bottle of wine, and discounts at the spa. The higher-end suites such as the Junior Honeymoon and Honeymoon Suites are particularly luxurious. Activities include scuba diving, sailing, parasailing, snorkeling and speedboat excursions, bowling, beach volleyball, and beach soccer.

Complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests are offered on-site for guests traveling back to the United States. 

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
