    Below Average everything

    A group of us just returned from spending 5 nights at the Ocean Blue and Sand. The rooms are in extreme need of an update - the AC operates but by no means keeps the rooms a comfortable temp- even after having maintenance come "fix it". Beds, lamps, chairs, mirrors, bathroom fixtures and beyond are in poor condition. Rooms are truly what can make or break a hotel experience and this one was completely a deal breaker. Service was average to below average- workers expect tips for everything- you were treated rudely if a tip was not given. Too many examples to list here. Housekeeping came each day we were there but they do not knock- they just enter your room. This happened to several others in our group so it was not an isolated incident. The room safe was "broken" so maintenance had to come "fix' it with a tool that instantly unlocks it- was very sketchy so chose to not use safe. Keep your things put away and out of site as housekeeping staff enters your room multiple times a day. Food was average at all restaurants and buffets we visited. I have visited many destination hotel properties and was the worst service I have experienced. I use Trip Advisor frequently but have never written a review. I felt obligated to let others know about our experience here. I would choose another property in the DR. This is not a 4 star hotel,

    Worst hotel service ever

    I went with my husband and Mother in law to enjoy a little family vacation. From the moment we were checking in til the moment we left it was a terrible experience. Food, service, employees, all terrible. Someone was smelling the food and put it back, they wouldn’t let us check in, they told us to get off the bus midway into the resort.

    entertainment

    I would like to give a review in regards to there entertainment, Sunday night there was a love night and that’s when La voce performed! They were 4 amazing guys who serenaded us with their amazing voice. I wasn’t into singing but when they started singing I started singing with them( the English songs) they brought highlights to our trip to Ocean blue and sand. They also performed that Monday afternoon with a band.... it was a nice chill relaxing day for us as it was our last day there. I wish to see them again on our next trip to Dominican next year. Muchos gracias, Ivy

    Great Family Vacation

    Family of 4, with 15 and 17 YO teens, all sharing 1 regular suite, sapphire club (Air Transat). Room had 2 queens, and a pullout couch. Spacious enough for the 4 of us. We had a 'garden view' which overlooked a service road, but we didnt use the balcony for much other than dryng clothes, so that wasn't an issue. Centrally located in building 8, we were halfway between the ocean and restaurants, and the pool was directly outside. The food, drinks, and accommodation were amazing. We enjoyed the Japanese and Italian a la carte restaurants the most, and the lobby bar and bartenders were terrific!! Mike's coffee was a definate highlight, and we visited it multiple times a day. There was an abundance of tasty food at the buffet. Nutella from the Blue Team made our trip extra special! Woooooooow! 😘 He is always engaging and made every evening of our trip exciting! The entire entertainment team had our teenagers up dancing and taking part in various games throughout the day each day. They really made our trip. I have rated 4/5 ONLY because of the constant hounding of the sales team trying to get us into a timeshare meeting. It took 3 days of 'no thank yous' and walking away before that ended. If it weren't for that, this would be a 5 star rating. Thank you OBS and the entertainment staff for a wonderful family trip!! We would definately return.
