The resort was pretty nice but I think Covid probaby affected a lot of the services available. By far the people working on the resort made all the difference, especially, Osvaldo! He was only a FB message away at all hours of the day and night. He answered all my questions and concerns and picked me up for all my Covid, Massage, departure appointments. If it wasn't for him, my stay wouldn't have gone so smoothly.

Hotel's Favourite
This was our fourth time at Ocean Blue and again we had a great stay. Osvaldo our butler was fantastic. Our daughter had an issue with her room and he was able to get it resolved quickly. The Blue Team was fabulous! Pokemon, Espaquetti, Cherry and Chocolate kept us busy and entertained. Elvin our waiter at the Privilege breakfast was wonderful, especially with our grandson. Richard at the beach bar was great. By the second day he knew exactly what we wanted when we went up for a drink. Food was very good except at the Italian. Our grandkids ordered pasta and it was awful. Steakhouse was outstanding. Steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. Japanese was great. Although only certain restaurants are open each night we were able to try them all. Our younger grandson had fun at the Daisy Club, but older ones were disappointed that the teen club was closed. Overall another great stay. Can't wait to go back next year!

Total hell, locals come at weekends and are horrible, poo next to the pool, men using ladies restrooms, tired rooms and bad service, hard to get a lift to main bar impossible infact, they charged 37dollars for 2 year olds nappies, 9 dollars for crisps/ potato chips, a complete rip off with dirty pools, local child standing next to pool taking a pee in it.. horrified disgusted and won't be back ever.

Positives: - Friendly staff - Nice food - Comfy beds - Ok entertainment during the day time Negatives: - Cleanliness of the rooms after arriving - Entertainment in the evening isn’t the best - Locals being allowed in on the weekends (explanation below) - Certain staff have their favourite customers, especially when it came to weekend when it was near enough impossible to get a drink at the pool bar - Beach is not as it looks on photos - Restaurants not open all the time (this should be stated when booking!!) - Hassle walking around the complex This hotel does not meet my expectations of a 5 star hotel. The basic cleanliness in my room was poor, the ‘jacuzzi bath’ was poorly cleaned & our floor was black by the time we was leaving. I requested to have our room fumigated in the second week & unfortunately it did not get done. On the last week I had 52 bites on one leg only, and I was waking up with these, hence asking for fumigation. On my first week Mon- Thur the hotel was peaceful, and you was guaranteed to get into any restaurant (when they were open!!). But unfortunately, the weekend was a let down, I do not mind locals in any country, in fact I enjoy meeting other people, but the hotel did not let guests know that they let locals in on the weekends. A lady I spoke to had her belongings robbed at the pool & at the evening someone had their window put through. On the second weekend of our stay, the local children were leaving their food all over the floors and under peoples sun beds and just simply having no respect for other people who were enjoying their time there. It was near enough impossible to get drinks at the pool bar, because staff favourited the locals. Entertainment during the day time (on weekends) was all in Spanish too. I really enjoyed my visit through the week, but the weekends let it down for me unfortunately. I would not visit again.

Dear guest Thank you for sharing your comment about your stay with us. We are very sorry for your disagreement with the visit of the local public during the weekends. As a hotel we cannot limit the people who visit us or control their access, it is worth noting that we will be passing your observation to the departments involved so that they are taken into account. On behalf of the entire staff, we apologize and hope that you will give us another opportunity to offer you a better stay as usual. Cheers!

When we got to the hotel it looked like paradise without a question. I’ve never had a real life flamingo in our hotel before but here they do. They have lovely big fish and turtles in ponds. It’s very picturesque. The longer the holiday went on we started to notice slight imperfections which you do as the holiday goes on. The rooms are nice but I feel the bath/ shower needs ripping out and a new one needs fitting. It’s dated and the jacuzzi bath never looks clean. The food is the best part of the hotel. The food is to die for. Each restaurant has nice food but the Italian Is our favourite. The staff are very trustworthy as I lost my phone on the second night and one of the waitresses gave it into reception. Most of the staff are nice but some have there favourite guests which is annoying because they will serve them first at the bar ect. The man in the sports bar is very nice and let us put the Liverpool game on. We did not know that the locals come into the resort on weekends. They are lovely people and they joined in our game of water polo with us. On the other hand you will be waiting for a drink for a while because the bar staff serve them all first. Both pools are a good size and having two swim up bars is great. The entertainment is pretty good but the funniest is the karaoke. Everyone gets up and it’s nice to hear songs in different languages. The entertainment in the day could be better as they only have water aerobics at 12 then something different at 3. No water games are planned by the entertainment people such as water polo and water volley ball which we like to do with new people but that’s our opinion as we are a young couple. I would recommend this hotel but not as a 5 star but as a 4.
