I want to extend a huge thank you to oceans blue and sand resort in punta cana. We had a blast at your resort and could not be happier. I congratulate you on your staff. Christy and Pedro you made us feel like family when we came to eat at the buffet and the restaurants. We looked forward every morning and every night to waking up and being greeted by them. They both made us feel like we have be friend's/family forever. A big thank you to Mac you took care of us and showed us a excellent time. Mac is the perfect front man for your resort always happy always fun and was always there if we had any questions concerns or help. There is no way you could leave a conversation with Mac and not have a huge smile on your face.. Thank you to Pikachu with the entertainment.. excellent shows laugh until your belly hurts. Not only treated us like guests but also treated us like royalty.. and conveyed that the same across the resort to every single one of the guests.. great guy and we loved every second of the experience Much love to them all Oceans blue and sand our vacation was memorable, fun, exciting and full of laughter, relaxation and pure enjoyment.. thank you for the experience and the staff mentioned above these are the reasons we will keep coming back and always referring to everyone we can.

Hotel's Favourite
This is a review of my favorite hotel during a worldwide Pandemic. This hotel and their people never cease to amaze me. From the Check in at the Lobby to the food at the buffet and Restaurants, I love this place!! I was Taken care of daily by my waitress Christy. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, she had a table for me with a view of the ocean. She was so sweet and kind. C. Moreta at the pool bar, took care of me well. Since there are no swim up bars and Beach bars, this was on the few places to get a drink (mask on). And of course there is Alexander and Edwin at the lobby bar. These people and the Apple Rep at Guest Service, made my trip fantastic.. As you can see by my pictures there were very few people there. Most eastern Europeans. no having to get up early to claim a chair at the pools or beach, plenty available. Talk about your social distancing!! you wore a mask to get a drink, wore a mask, had your temperature read and were given a plastic glove at the buffet. Safety first was this hotels rules. I was pulled aside at the airport upon entering and given a covid test. 5 minutes and done. I arranged a covid test with guest services 3 days before I went back to the US, very easy, another 5 minutes in room 2101 and results that evening at guest services. I felt safer at this resort than I do at home going shopping. Weather was beautiful, beach and pools clean and beautiful. Shout out to Pokemon and the entertainment group. they wanted to get people up and moving around, there just wasn't enough people.
