    Amazing vacation at OBS

    We stayed at OBS Oct 27 - Nov 6 and once again had an amazing time. Check in was easy and quick, especially with a welcome cocktail in hand!! Room was clean and well stocked every day. We had a ground floor room in block 5 with a pool view and it was perfect. Valencia our room attendant was amazing and so was Eveling. As always, Wilfredo was the best. Welcomed us back with open arms and always made sure we had what we needed. If you want an AMAZING omelette for breakfast, go talk to Josue in the buffet. Scrambled, over easy, what ever, he is great. Illuminata served us in a few restaurants like Route 66 and the steak house and she was great. She made sure we had everything we needed for each meal and her service was A++++. Our server in the buffet was usually Freddy. Want to laugh and feel like part of the family, sit in his section. Want the perfect Latte or Cappucino? Go see Tomas at Mike's. This coffee house has the best coffee and treats. Believe me, you won't be missing Starbucks. We also had Cristy as our server in the buffet. She arranged for a Happy BDay sing a long for me on my 50th. Whether we sat in her section or not, she would always come and say hello. Restaurants - buffet was good - they had different themes at night with a good variety. For lunch we ate mostly at the buffet by the beach were they had the BEST pizza. For a great sandwich, go see Omar at the beach side buffet. We had a la carte dinners at the Steak House, Route 66 and the Oriental restaurant. Food was great at all of them. Pools were beautiful and clean. Drinks were plentiful and tasty. The entertainment staff was great as well. They work so hard to make sure people are having fun. Show them a little love every once in a while. Unfortunately, the beach is getting smaller and smaller and that IS NOT THE FAULT OF THE HOTEL!!! They keep it clean so enjoy what you can. The beach party on Wed. night was a blast, so go have some fun. The piano bar is nice and relaxing and the nightly shows were okay. We love this hotel. Is it perfect? No. But you are on vacation so relax, make new friends and have fun. The only draw back was on the weekend. Because it was low season, they have a really good rate for local residents to come and stay. It got really busy, almost too busy. The staff, for the most part, work 12 - 14 days, stay at the hotel and then go home for 3 days. While they are taking care of you and your family, they don't see theirs so be nice, tip and say please and thank you. Remember, not all the staff speak great English, after all, we are visiting them so don't get upset if they don't understand what you are saying. BTW, if you speak ANY Spanish, they love that!!! Yes, we were asked about timeshare. Just so no thank you and they will leave you alone. We can't wait to go back to OBS!!!!

    Beautiful much needed getaway. This resort has a little bit of everything that makes for a great time.

    SHOUT OUT TO MY "FAMILIA IN THE HOUSE" @ "SEXY BLACK" I searched high and low at all resorts in Punta Cana for our 10 year wedding anniversary vacation. I chose this one mostly based the pictures of the property and the excellent reviews of the food. I can say this place is soooo much more than just that! The staff is extremely helpful and the morale seems to be up as most people there look like they enjoy their jobs. Our butler Wellington "Beef" as he goes by was very helpful and always there when you needed him as well as a fun person to talk and carry on conversation with. He even helped me along with my spanish or lack thereof. The beach and pool were beautiful but we found ourselves in the main bar every night. Alexander "Sexy Black" was a main attraction probably more so than the entertainment they had scheduled. He has a way of stealing and complimenting the show. A lot of fun was had at the bar and it really was one of the hardest things to do was say goodbye to all the people, mostly Sexy Black and Beef. The food was unbelievable in the buffet, especially considering its resort food. There is literally something for everyone in the buffet. The most entertaining place to eat is the Japanese restaurant "Sensai", the cooks there put on a show while you watch them cook and prepare your meal, definitely a must go. The only real concern I have for the duration we were there was both beds in the room were uncomfortable and we didnt sleep very well. Beef advised us when he picked us up for checkout that they are replacing the mattresses and our room must not have changed out yet. I hope that is the case as we our already looking at dates to plan our return to Ocean Blue and Sand!

    This was our second time to Punta Cana.We travel 2-3 time a year. Food at the buffet was good. Room and cleaning services was ok too. But huge problem -beach. The beach area in very bad, very poor condition,completely eroded, crowded and very small,blocked buy several giant sand bags; they look like huge dead whales. The beach very dirty, piles of the mess and....unpleasant smell. Looks like workers no clean the beach. I don't usually write reviews,but this is a must for future travelers.
