    Service!

    We recently visited Ocean Blue and Sand. The service is great as well as the facilities, the pools and the staff. The food is awesome. I love the fact that all a la carte restaurants are in the same building so you can visit more than one.

    ATouch of Paradise Ocean Sand & Beach

    NATHANIEL is the best Concierge I have ever dealt with anywhere. It was a short visit with my friend and he went out of his way to make sure put trip was everything we wanted and more. I highly recommend this resort and everything you it claims is true! We will stay again and again and tell everyone we know how wonderful it was. Just make sure to ask for Nathaniel in building 9. Best birthday weekend ever! Grace Joy

    A complete disappointment! Avoid at all costs

    All I can say is Wow! And not in a good way. I've been to approx 10 resorts in the Caribbean over the last several years and I could never understand how someone could be so critical of one of these resorts. I now know. This has been the worst resort and experience I've ever staying at one of these resorts. First. We wanted to upgrade to their "privilege" status at the resort. The resort quoted us $55 a day per person, per day. That would have been around $600 with taxes. And we were willing to shell it out. My travel agent called the company that we booked through and got the same thing for $90 all in. So how can there be such a price difference there. Sounds like a scam to me. Second, check in. Check in was fine and quick, and we were introduced to our Butler who is supposed to be our contact while we were there. His tour of the resort consisted of a 30 second review of the property map. Between check in, waiting for our butler and getting to our room took about 30-40min. When we got to our room, still no luggage. Took another 30 min. And there was no one checking in when we were. It all went down hill from there. But here are the pros and cons. The only reason it got 2 stars and not 1, is the fact that the food was average. Pros: 2 swim up bars A beach bar Food was decent Privilege room was big Cons: Beds are horrible Showers are very small and the temp goes from hot to cold without touching the knob Bartenders aren't as engaging like other resorts. Even when tipped very well(sometimes $10 for 2 drinks), they just take the money, walk away and shove it in the tip jar Room was never attended to in 5 days We had to call several times to get the fridge restocked Beach is very small and eroded The ocean is nice, but there are several sandbags in the water resembling beached whales The "hustlers" on the beach are VERY pushy and allowed to walk on property. The security on the beach say nothing to them. And they offer anything from weed, to coke, to women. The privilege section of the resort is nothing special besides a few cabanas that fill up by 8am It's a good walk from the privilege section to the restaurants There no food outlets besides a sit down buffet near the pool and beach. I feel like I wasted thousands of dollars booking this resort and will recommend to anyone that they avoid this place. My travel agent, that was with us, is doing the same. I'm sure this review will get the obligatory "we are sorry" response from the resort. That means nothing when I'm out a few thousand dollars for 5 days of inconvenience and aggravation.

    Third time and still a charm

    Just got back from OBS. This was our third time. We have been to OCT and ORP (once each). We liked those Ocean resorts also, but OBS is still our favorite. Food and service was excellent. Temp of pools was wonderful!! Not shockingly cold to the body. Our room had been renovated and was very nice. I missed the reading light on the bed, though...didn't have those. My only complaints this trip would be the shuttle could have been more consistent. Spent a lot of time waiting for it to come around. And, this year for some reason, the bugs were horrible. Got eaten alive!! So, may want to bring bug spray or wipes. We'll definitely be back:)
