My wife and I decided to go to Ocean Blue and Sand for our honeymoon and we loved every minute of it. The food was great, the beach and pool were awesome, the room was nice, and most importantly the people were very friendly. "Chino" was especially great to see. He was a jack of all trades and always very friendly. He was always hustling around to make sure every guest had a great experience. Tomas in Mike's Coffee Shop was also very friendly. Gaby was also very helpful whenever we had any questions.

Jonathon in Guest Services gave us the best individual attention the whole week we were at Ocean Blue. I couldn't believe that we had maid service two times a day. The grounds were immaculate and gorgeous. We absolutely loved our week there! Out of all the resorts I have stayed at Ocean Blue was the best in cleanliness, variety of food, amenities, and the happiest,most helpful staff by far in the world! Also it was so great not to have a timeshare pitch while I was there. I was sad to have to leave!!

Booked through Apple Vacations. Transfers were wonderful. Resort grounds were beautiful and well kept. Our room 5303 was clean and well stocked each and every day. Our room server was Josefino Cedano and she was excellent. She made us smile each morning. The food was good and we connected with a good server named Frances Ortiz. Only down side was we had to say "no" to an H10 rep almost every day. Thank you all.

Our stay was overall excellent! We would definitely come back. The only things that we felt were lacking was service at various times during our week stay. At the restaurant on the beach, it took us 3+ hours to dine and we never got our desert we ordered, even after 30 minutes and 2 reminders. The food was delicious but the delay made us miss part of a scheduled show on the resort. This delay in service repeated itself from time to time during all meal times, even in fairly slow settings. The food was overall very good and the beach was very nice.

Destination Wedding with 110 family and friends - Simply Fantastic! No, you are not reading the title wrong, we just got back from a week at the Ocean Coral & Turquesa Resort with 110 of our family and friends who had come from all over the world for our wedding. I‘m sure many of our guests will also write a review for this resort, but I‘m confident they will all echo my review of this wonderful resort. Let me begin by confirming that all 110 of our guests stayed at this resort for the entire week. Let me also note that our 110 guests came from various social and economical backgrounds, ranging from middle class to the rich and wealthy. Most were also seasoned travellers, as are we, who have stayed at motels as well as 5 star/diamond resorts both in Mexico and around the world. Let me also note that not a single one of our 110 guests voiced any major complaints or issues about the resort or its staff. I know that is not enough detail for those of you thinking about this resort, so I will break-down the review into the important sections, while keeping it as brief as possible, ending with wedding details for those of you thinking of getting married here. RESORT GROUNDS & PROPERTY: The pictures speak for themselves, but let me assure you that the resort is simply gorgeous. Well maintained and super clean throughout, the layout of the resort is simply fantastic when compared to other resorts in the area. As opposed to being vertically long in relation to the beach, this resort is horizontal to the beach, which makes the foot travel time from the lobby to the sand, a mere minute or two. And it is only a 5 minute walk along the beach from one end to the other. But since the resort buildings are in arches, it does take a bit longer if you were to walk through the hallways from one end to the other. And unlike other resorts that have basic hotel/motel like buildings, the spanish/mexican villa architecture and coral/white/yellow colors of the resort buildings make you feel like you‘re actually in Mexico, and not just some sunny destination in the US. There are two huge lobbies, one for the Ocean Coral side and one for the Ocean Turquesa side, but they are joined and it really feels like one huge lobby. There is free WiFi in the lobby, so that is where most people hang out during the day to catch-up on work, emails, skype and facebook. It is also the hang-out area for all when it rains, with lots of fun entertainment like poker nights, ping-pong competitions, and of course karaoke! Also a great place to get a good cup of coffee in the morning before Mike‘s opens. More on Mike‘s Coffee later. A word of caution though...like most resorts in the area, there is ample use of marble and tile flooring at this resort that become extremely slippery when wet, and extra caution should be taken during and after rainfalls. My sister actually slipped and broke her arm as a result, but we are not going to blame the resort for that like some other people do. It‘s not their fault. There are signs all over the place, and it‘s just common sense and an accident that could have happened just as well here in rainy Vancouver. It is unrealistic to expect all resort floorings to be non-slip, and frankly would make for a very ugly resort. So just use caution when floors are wet. The resort staff were helpful in getting us transportation and recommending a great hospital to take her to, and thank god she and all the rest of our guests had bought insurance, which we HIGHLY recommend everyone do when travelling to Mexico. You just never know. ROOMS: Every room at this resort was clean, modern and roomy. The decor is really nice and colorful. If you stay on any floor other than the first, you‘re sure to have some type of ocean view as all rooms face the ocean. Each room has a basic mini-bar complete with beer, pop and water. They refill them regularly, and if not, just pick-up the phone and get room service to restock. The climate control system works really great at keeping the place cool and is not as noisy as some other places. There is no internet in the rooms, unless you upgrade to Privilege, if not and you want internet in your room it‘s pretty darn expensive, so don‘t waste your money and just take a short walk to the lobby and get it for free. There is room-service in the room with a basic fast food menu, but who wants to eat in when you can go out and enjoy the restaurants. Safety was not an issue for any of us at this resort. Not a single guest complaint of anything missing. They have a safe in the room and issue everyone random locks and keys. Many have complained about this, but they are way SAFER than electronic safes, which can be unlocked with a master code that could be passed amongst staff easily. The lock and key ones do have a master key as well, but only one and it‘s with the security manager and can‘t be stolen by other staff as easily as a code. If you lose your key, they charge $80 to unlock your safe with the master key. Again, we had lots of valuables and cash gifts in there and not a penny went missing. When we first arrived and they were showing us to our room, we ran into a couple that found themselves locked out of their room, and the bell-boy informed them that their room had been locked to all access because they had left a lot of cash and valuables out in the open. Couldn‘t believe it. The beds are comfy, but to be honest with you, we were so beat after each day that we would have slept like babies on the floor, so can‘t help you with a proper review if you are picky on bed quality. The only slight issue with the rooms are the tiles chosen for the bathrooms. It is the most awful color and texture, and though they are not, it makes them look dirty. Not sure why they couldn‘t have chosen a better tile. And as for the musty smell everyone talks about....it‘s normal. That‘s just the smell of the tropical water system there. You can smell it at resorts, in town and even in the homes in the area. It‘s not specific to this resort. The tap water is filtered but we don‘t recommend drinking that, and certainly not the shower water. The water they serve in restaurants and bars and use for ice is bottled water. POOLS: There are 4 pools on the resort, one for every type of action you are looking for, and all 4 are gorgeous pools with waterfalls and soothing Jacuzzi jets throughout. There is a quite ‘Adult‘ pool at one end, close to the Privilege area. Many think this pool is reserved for Privilege guests only, but it‘s open to anyone, just not kids. This is where most people go to catch some sun and read a book. Then there is the bar or party pool. This is where all the action happens during the day and at night. It‘s the only pool with a wet bar and where most of the pool games and music is played. At night, the dry side of the pool bar turns into an evening hang-out and lounge with music, a DJ and people dancing and having a good time. The next pool is the main / large pool. It is a mix of families and fun. It has a very shallow end for kids and toddlers to enjoy, as well as someone looking to suntan in the water. It also has great Jacuzzi jets, and tiled lounged beds in the center to lie in the water. This is also where water volleyball and other pool games take place. The final pool is the family/kids pool. This is where most of the kids hang out, and where the kids club is located. Great fun for those with toddlers and kids as they are sure to find friends to play with and be entertained by the kids club staff. Overall the pools at this resort are the BEST that we have seen in any resort in Mexico, and between just our immediate families we have been to a dozen different ones in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Los Cabos, and we are all in agreement on this point. FOOD / RESTAURANTS: We would rate the food at this resort at above-average. It has one main buffet restaurant where they serve breakfast and lunch, and 5 other restaurants that specifically serve dinner, along with the best coffee shop ANYWHERE in Mexico, guaranteed! First the buffet...we‘re not going to lie and tell you it‘s the best we have ever seen. But it certainly is not bad. It has a good variety of food for everyone, with a solid breakfast, a good lunch selection and an average dinner. You really have no other choices for breakfast or lunch, so the buffet is it. They try to change-up the selection everyday so that you don‘t get bored, but again, nothing to rave about, but nothing to sneeze at either. You will find much better buffet restaurants at other resorts, with better selection and tastier food, but for price point, this is not at all bad. Next, the restaurants...There are 5 in total. A Mexican, an Italian, a Seafood, a Japanese and a Fusion/French. Can‘t go wrong with any of them really, they are all good and all our guests said they enjoyed their dinners regardless of which they went to. The only sore point is the Japanese restaurant, because it is the only one that requires reservations in advance. The others are all first-come, unless you are in the Privilege category, in which case you can make reservations at any of the restaurants in advance. More on the Privilege option later. Again, the food at all 5 are excellent. The Mexican and Italian are standard menus you would expect, food is great, but nothing special like the others 3. The Japanese is great because it has the Teppanyaki tables that come with a cooking show. If you‘re not familiar with this format, just do an online search and you‘ll see what we are talking about. Again, if you want to enjoy the Japanese, be it Teppanyaki or regular tables, you have to line-up at 5:30pm to get a reservation for one of the shows which are at 6:00pm, 7:30pm and 9:00pm. because they fill-up FAST. People make it sound like you have to line-up from 5:30pm until you get seated, but that is not true. You just line-up, put your name down, then go change or enjoy some drinks and come back when your reservation time comes. You may luck-out and be able to just walk up and get a regular table, and many of our guests did exactly that. Some even said that the regular menu was better than the Teppanyaki, which is a set menu along with the cooking show. The Seafood, or Villa Marina as it‘s called, is great because it is an open-air restaurant where you can enjoy great seafood dishes with the warm tropical breeze coming in from all sides. This is also where you will find the snack buffet that happens between breakfast-lunch and again lunch-dinner, when the main buffet restaurant is closed for the switch. The snack buffet has basic fast food, nothing special. Except for when they have the BBQ going, whereby you will find great chicken, chorizo, burgers, seafood and hotdogs cooked right on the grill right next to this restaurant. But for dinner, this is the place for the great seafood dishes. The Fusion/French, restaurant is by far the least visited because it is away from the central restaurant area towards the Privilege section. We didn‘t get a chance to go, but the guests that did enjoyed crepes for dinner, and lobster at an extra cost. Overall, you will not be disappointed with the food, unless you are a really fussy eater. Again, our guests came from all backgrounds, including those that normally eat at fancy expensive restaurants and none mentioned anything about the food being bad or unacceptable. Then there is Mike‘s Coffee...where do we being. As a coffee fan, being from Vancouver and all, we have been to Mexico a number of times as previously mentioned, and we can tell you how difficult it is to find good coffee, let alone espresso coffee like cappuccinos and lattes. Well take it from us when we say that Mike‘s Coffee not only rivals the big coffee chains, but dare we say beats them in some regards. First, the atmosphere in the coffee bar is just as posh as any trendy coffee shop, with old coffee machines, leather couches, and the coolest ceiling fans we have ever seen. There are pastries and sandwiches during the day, and fantastic cheesecake selections at dinner time. They even have ice frappes and shakes!! This little gem is one of the main reasons I voted for this resort when we had to pick. The only, and I mean only complaint...the place opens at 10am!? Totally didn‘t get why that was. Regardless, they have just as good coffee drinks in the lobby if you are an early riser. ENTERTAINMENT: This was another reason we picked this resort, as they have a fantastic entertainment team for adults and for kids. Lots of fun pool games throughout the day, including beach volleyball, and more fun at night with casino nights, mayan dancers, live bands, and karaoke in and around the lobby. We were worried about how to keep 110 people entertained, but not a single night went by that people didn‘t have something fun to do or enjoy. Like we said, the pool bar turns into a cool outdoor lounge/club at night until midnight. It‘s so much better than other resorts that have these dark, smelly ‘clubs‘. What‘s better than having drinks and dancing the night away under the stars? And for those who like to continue the night, after midnight it‘s time to hit one of the best Sports Bars we have seen at any resort. Looks just like it does in the pictures. Really clean and trendy. A great after-party location. It has a pool table and an air-hockey table, along with a dance floor complete with disco lights! And of course, this is the only place you will find food after 10:30pm. Nothing major, just burgers, hotdogs, nuggets, fries and onion rings. But let‘s face it, when you‘re drunk, it all tastes like a gourmet meal! The staff are also great about playing any cds you may want to dance to, so bring a few if you have a large group. Many of us hung out at the sports bar until the sun came up. Great fun. PRIVILEGE: This is an upgrade found at most other Mexico resorts, and goes by many names. But the basic premiss is the same. You pay extra, and in return you get a bigger room, get to drink premium brand alcohol, make reservations at any of the restaurants (but only for those who have paid the upgrade), get a private beach area with beach beds and a private waiter, butler services such as dry cleaning, and a private lounge that serves breakfast and has snacks throughout the day, and free wired internet in your room. Is it worth the extra money? Well, depends who you‘re going with. If it‘s a romantic couples getaway, then it may be worth the perks and the ability to make reservations, private beach beds, the lounge etc. But if you‘re in a group with others who are not going to get Privilege, then it‘s a waste of money and you‘ll find yourself not taking advantage of the perks. It‘s not even worth the premium drinks, because the regular bar brands are pretty good. Personally, I say don‘t bother unless you want to get the best out of a romantic getaway for two. WEDDING: My wife has given her own review of the wedding services a few reviews down, but let me give you a little more detail. Simply put, we had the wedding of our dreams, in no small part thanks to the assistance of the wedding coordinators at the resort, Ana and Karen. That is not to say that my bride and I didn‘t have to do a lot of organization on our end, because we did and you‘ll find that is the case with any destination wedding you plan. But they were very helpful and accommodating at every step, especially once we arrived and needed last minutes things and changes. The resort offers a number of wedding packages, the price you pay depends on the quality of wedding you want, basic or extravagant. Once you pick a package, every change and addition comes with an extra cost. Again, we previewed a LOT of resorts both in the Cancun area and Los Cabos, and the premiss was all the same. If you want what‘s included in the package, then you pay the asking price, but if you want this extra or that changed, you get charged, and some of the charges are hefty. Nevertheless, we paid extra and certainly got our money‘s worth. Any outside supplier, be it photographer or hair dresser will cost you a day-pass for them, so take that into account. They don‘t let anyone onto the property without a day-pass. If you want extra flowers, we recommend finding a vendor outside the resort as you will likely get better pricing. As for decor, we don‘t recommend spending too much or going elaborate. The resort is beautiful and there is so much color and beauty of the open sky and ocean, that adding frills only takes away from the experience in our opinion. We didn‘t go crazy with lighting or hanging decors, and glad that we didn‘t because mother nature supplied the best yellow moon, vivid stars and distant thunder show no money could ever buy. Any extra decor, be it resort supplied or outside vendor is extremely overpriced anyway. We paid for a rehearsal dinner the night before at the open air Villa Marina restaurant with all 110 of our guests and it was fantastic. Every single one of our guests gushed about how great the food was there, and at the wedding reception. The appys they served at our cocktail hour was also greatly raved about by all. Nothing but compliments about the food. In fact, nothing but compliments about the entire wedding. Almost all of our guests gushed about how this was by far the BEST wedding they had ever attended. Which made us very happy. Again, Ana and Karen are so helpful and accommodating and made the process so comfortable for us. Don‘t get worked-up if it takes them a few days to return your emails during the planning process. These ladies have a dozen or more weddings to plan and orchestrate each week, so they are busy. If you really need to reach them, just pick-up the phone and call them, you‘ll reach them way faster than by email, as they don‘t spend much time behind a computer. But rest assured that as it gets closer to your wedding date, their attention, responses and activity ramps up. STAFF: The staff at this resort are really great. Always helpful, always in a good mood, and always appreciative of tips. They don‘t make much an hour considering the service they provide, so please be sure to tip here and there. Be it a dollar or two, they really go the extra mile when you tip them. I would tip the pool bartender $5 at the start of the day, and all throughout he would attend to my order right away when he saw me coming over or standing in the line. If nothing else, at least be polite and respectful with them, as they are with you. I cannot believe the number of arrogant people I would notice bossing them around and not so much as say please or thank you. Who the hell do these people think they are?! Just stay home and let the rest of us enjoy a civilized holiday. CONCLUSION: We HIGHLY recommend The Ocean Coral and Turquesa Resort by H10 for any trip and especially if you‘re thinking about getting married there. Be it a romantic couples getaway, a family trip, a trip with friends, or even a 110 member destination wedding, this resort has something for every taste and expectation. Just don‘t set unrealistic expectations before you go. This isn‘t a luxury hotel, it‘s a vacation spot, and a darn great one at that. Muchas Gracias H10! Thank you for making it the wedding of our dreams.

Just returned from an amazing holiday. Hotel was excellent, weather perfect. Very clean resort, food was great. Entertainment was brilliant, service overall was excellent. We were a party of 11 for a 50th birthday and they went out of their way to make it perfect. One day of rain and they put on entertainment inside, brilliant!! We would definitely return again and recommend it to anyone.

What a nice resort. Spotless, well maintained, super friendly staff, especially Rode, Yudier, and Juanito who waited on us at the beach. We would definately go back. The food was good, the room was nice and spacious. The only thing that I wasn'r crazy about was the lack of privacy in the room. There is not a "bathroom" There is an area with a bathroom sink, a toilet with a frosted glass door and a large shower with a frosted glass door. Once you're done showering you either have to dry off in the shower and get dressed in there too, or you have to kick the rest of the familiy out of the room to get dressed. That would be my only complaint. Minimal!! We would definately go back!!

I went the between Christmas and new years for the first time and my husband and I loved it! Everything was wonderful; the food is good, it is clean, guests and employees are friendly, the room was very nice and compfortable, and the stie is amazing! We met one of the bar tenders (Manuel de la cruz). He is very friendly and a very good worker. If you happen to go to one of the pool bars, you have to go meet him, you wont be disapointed!

We had such an amazing time at this resort. I would recommend it to anyone. We had our wedding there and thanks to Ana and Ariana's help it was amazing. It was beyond anything we could have imagined for our wedding. The cocktail hour, the flowers everything was done using the colours that we wanted, they went above and beyond our expectations. They accommidated all of ours guests, the food was spectacular and I just can't say enough how amazing it was and what wonderful staff they have there. All 78 of our guests are still talking about what a great place and food and everything was. We can't wait to go back. Carly and Eric :)

We recently stayed at Ocean Maya Royale and had a fantastic stay. This is truly a 5 star resort. We have stayed at many 5 stars across the carribean and this was one of our favorites. It is not a massive resort and has a nice boutique feel. We upgraded to the privilege package and that really exceeded our expectations. The priv desk staff were extremely accomdating. All 3 restaurants had amazing food, not one complaint. The F&B manager was always present so you could tell that he was was on top of everything. The buffet was great for all meals too. Mike's coffee was awesome, you could have lattes or other specialty coffees and they were delicious. The bedrooms were spacious, clean and very modern. I couldn't ask for anything more. The pools were great, lots of activities. The drinks were excellent and the staff was awesome. I really loved my stay.

A wonderful 2 weeks - great resort - very clean, food was excellent, staff were extremely friendly and helpful - room 19405 (our room) was one of the nicest this side of Heaven - the view was spectacular from the cruise ships passing by almost daily in late PM to the greaat view of the rising full moom. Would go back again in a heart beat! Two things would make it even more wonderful - another bar - the 2 bars are very busy and the line-ups tend to be a bit long duiring mid-day into evening. The staff at the bars are very efficient but we felt they were extremely overworked, particularly at the pool bar. Chairs were in short supply - mainly due to the fact that guests would mark their chair with their belongings early in the day and never return to them until late PM -making them useless to everyone for the better part of the day (not really the resorts' fault) but perhaps signs could be posted that unoccupied chairs may be claimed by other guests and belongings could be held in the towel pen until the guests return.. In light of the fact that there had been 2 shark attacks reported (one at our beach and one in Cancun), we feel signs should have been posted on the beach warning guests that they are swimming at their own risk due to sharks in the area waters.

Just returned from Punta Cana stayed in room #3325 from the moment we arrived everytime you asked for something the answer was "NOT POSSIBLE". Guest Services is just a front for Time Share. As soon as you check in they are on you like piranhas, if you are not a "Privledge" guest you are nothing. Could not get one dinner reservation, and if you did happen to be the lucky few to get one Privledge Guests can walk right in and take your seats. Hope you like the buffet! Overun by underage drunken American Teenagers,yelling,swearing and fighting at 2am. Had to call sercurity. Can't get a chair at the pool or beach unless you are up at 5. People put towels on chairs in both locations then don't return all day. Maid came to make up or room one day at 6pm Concierege arranged a taxi for us into town only to be taken to his friends store, What a scam that is. We have been to many resorts in Mexico,Panama,Aruba, etc and have never been as disapointed as we were at this one. Will Never Go Back. Stay away unless you like to be treated as a second class citizen Raul at the buffet and Argentina at Mikes are the only ones who should still be employed at this facility!

One of the best hotels we have stayed at, and we have been to Punta Cana for the past 5 years. Wonderful staff, especially Yereddy(hostess) Raul, and maids in the building 6206. Had my 50th birthday and they went above and beyond, making it a birthday I won't forget. Food was wonder, one of the best. Very clean and well kept grounds. Would definately recommend it and will definately be back. Thanks again for a great week. Oh yes, and the weather was wonderful.

This hotel was most amazing in every way. We upgraded to the privilege suit and it was beautiful,well worth it, and very clean. Antonio at the bar was incredible always helped to make our day that much better with a good laugh, as well as Juan in the hacienda. I want to give a BIG BIG thank you to Susannah and Richardo, and the rest of the animations staff they were wonderful and really made our trip a memorable one, they had a surprise for us at Coco bongo that we will never forget. this crew are one of a kind, because of them and the rest of the amazing staff at this resort, the near perfect service, and beautiful scenery me and my newly engaged fiancée will be back next year and want to plan our wedding there so we can bring the whole family to share in this amazing resort and relive the vacation where we got engaged. I asked her at the gorgeous fountain right past the lobby area and bought my ring at the jewelery store in the resort. I cant remember the girls name who helped me but Thank you so much for helping me pick the perfect ring. I can only say good things about this place in fact the only negative thing was that we had to leave eventually. I give this place ten stars if i could. Thanks again to all of you, and hopefully see you next year!! room 214

We spent four nights at this incredible resort. My husband, myself, our two young children, and additional extended family members were so pleased with our experience! Our room was immaculate! The grounds were beautiful and so colorful! The pool and restraunts were so clean and inviting! Everyone working at this resort - from the grounds-keepers to the waitstaff to the cleaning staff were so courteous and friendly. I don't think there was a time that any of the was NOT smiling. I can't count how many times one of the friendly staff said, "I'm happy because I love my job." Luis (aka our "butler") was so accomodating. We asked for assistance with several things and he always very graciously abliged us! Our young kids had so much fun - this is a very family-friendly setting. We are looking forward to returning to this wonderful resort in this very special country. GRACIAS!!

My wife and I had a fantastic vacation. It started out great by booking with our favorite travel agent, Bon Voyage Travel in Lancaster, PA. Upon arrival we checked in and within 10 minutes we were in our room. The lobby bar decor and atmosphere was tropical with very friendly bar staff. The evening entertainment was well above what we expected. Each night there was a live band at the bar to dance to. The rooms, public areas, and grounds were very well maintained and clean. Surpisingly there were no insects. We ate most of our meals at the buffet because we enjoyed the large selection. The wait staff in the restaurants was very accomodating and attentive. We have traveled the Caribbean 27 times, and this place will always be one of the best we've ever stayed at.

The resort was great! We went with some of our friends and our experience was unforgettable. All the staff was wonderful especially Jose, Felix, Wilfredo, and Enrique!! They treated us like royalty! The ocean was gorgeous and the beaches were really clean! Mikes was great to wake up to every morning! The food was great, especially the tropical fruit. It was our first trip to the Dominican Republic, but I cannot wait to go back!

Great service in our room from our housekeeper! A variety of food and drinks. One small negative would be that some of the staff didn't come around for drinks or served us drinks during our meals and water pressure for showers were bad. Other than that we enjoyed our stay and would come back in the future to visit again.

Rm # 4303 My family of 5 along with friends, have just returned from an awesome vacation in Punta Cana at the Ocean Blue and Sand resort. I can't say enough good things about the resort and their employees. The rooms were nice and clean, the food was great and the Dominican people were very friendly and helpful... From the pool, beach front and restaurants, to the evening entertainment, we thoroughly enjoyed each and every day of our vacation... I must make special mention of some awesome entertainment employees of the resort. Elvin Rivera provided lots of fun and good service at the awesome Route 66 restaurant.. I don't know how you put up with all 9 of us and all of our crazy comments.. Also to Reynoldo: your amazing dancing and sense of humour created a very lively night show and very entertaining. . and last but not least to Ada and Sapido; You both made our holiday complete. We truly enjoyed your sense of humour and kindness. I still can hear you count off the dance steps! ... You made us all feel so special and we miss you!! I know that all your patrons feel the same personal and welcoming touch as we did.. We will definately return to ocean Blue and Sand resort in the future. Thanks again for an awesome holiday! I would recommend this resort to anyone!

My husband & I, along with 2 other couples, just returned from the Ocean Blue & Sand resort in Punta Cana. We stayed from 2/24/11 till 3/3/11. This was our 10th trip to the Dominican and our 3rd time staying at the Ocean Blue & Sand. We have stayed previously at the Catalonia Bavaro, the Riu Palace Macao, the Bahia Principe, and the Punta Cana Grand. Our favorite has been the Ocean Blue & Sand and they did not disappoint us this trip either. To us, the Ocean Blue & Sand is the perfect size hotel. Not too large where you don’t feel like you get individual attention and yet big enough to offer great amenities. The people that work at the resort are outstanding. I must tell you about something in particular that happened on this trip. One day our group decided to go to the Palma Real Mall and we spent the day doing some shopping there but mostly drinking at the Hard Rock Café Restaurant. We had a great time there and none of us was feeling any pain by the time we arrived back at the resort – somewhere around 6:00 pm. We drank more at the lobby bar and then went back to our room. Actually the night became a blur after the lobby bar. Fast forward I awoke about 1:30 in the morning and started thinking about the previous night and thought I don’t remember bringing my packages back to the room. I got up and searched our room and couldn’t find the purchases I had made at the Hard Rock (over $200 worth of items). I got up then and went to the lobby bar (1:30 am). Alexander & Sonia were there and told me that I had left my packages there. They said they thought I would come back but when I didn’t they took them to guest services but guest services were already closed. I thanked them and then went to bed. I went to guest services the following morning and low and behold all of my stuff was there. Alexander & Sonia – you guys are wonderful!!! I would also like to say a special thank you to Sonny – he is the guy that helps all the Apple vacationers – you do a great job!! And also the bartender Ronny – you do a great job too! !! Thanks for the making our vacation a great one & for the special memories!

Hola Senor, Hola Senora!!!! WOW! What a wonderful time my family and extended family (friends) had at the Ocean Blue! This was our first time travelling to the Dominican with our kids and it was an experience we will never forget. Where do I begin??? ARRIVAL: Check in went smoothly and the bellhops took very good care of our luggage. We arrived late but was able to have something to eat at Route 66 and Mike's coffee shop. Good food, great service! ELVIN at Route 66 was our favourite waiter and took great care of us. Very attentive and friendly. Tip him well, he deserves it! After we grabbed a bite to eat we took a walk down to the beach and the kids (late teens, early 20's) were happy to take part in the Beach Party that was going on. Unfortunately we were tired from travelling and turned in early. RESTAURANTS: The only a la carte restaurants we ate at were Route 66 and the Italian restaurant. They were both good!! For the most part we just stuck with the buffet restaurants. There was a different theme every night for dinner and a large variety of food to choose from. For breakfast we'd also go to the main buffet. I would have an omelette everyday. Ramone (the omelette guy) was so happy everytime I'd see him. Always smiling :). We ate lunch at the beach buffet, pretty much the same every day but always good. SHOWS: If you get the chance to see the Michael Jackson show...GO! It is such a great show! And the circus show was very well done too! We didn't make it to all the shows as we were wore right out by the end of the day. POOL: Fun, fun, fun! And it's great that there is an "active" pool and a "quiet" pool. With the kids we would always go to the active pool and participated pretty much every day! Only spent a couple of days at the beach....you have to get there early early early to get chairs with shade. Beautiful scenery! BARS: Henrry at the pool bar was awesome! The young girls didn't have a hard time watching him either! I have to tell you the Blue Hawiiaan , Miami Beach, and Dori Monkey were my favourite drinks. Sooooo good. Order two at a time as they are small and go down quite easy! ENTERTAINMENT STAFF: A big congratulations to Renaldo! He was part of the entertainment staff and during our stay was promoted to guest services (I think) You can tell he loves his job and we wish him nothing but the best! I cannot say enough about the entertainment staff, especially Ada and Sapito (Hector). From day one they embrassed us all and our kids had the time of their lives with them. Ada and Sapito have definately found their calling as they are very very very good at what they do. My daughter (21) cried at the end of the week when we had to say good-bye. Ada and Sapito became a part of our family in such a short time and they will NEVER be forgotten! If you have the opportunity to meet them, treat them well. And if managers of the Ocean Blue are reading this.....ADA & SAPITO deserve a raise! They worked hard every, smiled all the time, and touch our hearts! WE LOVE YOU ADA & SAPITO! Thank you to everyone at the Ocean Blue & Sand for helping us make memories with our family and friends that will last a lifetime! Hola!

Where to start? It was all so wonderful! The reception when we arrived was painless even though we couldn't get into our room for a few hours ... we were early for check-in. The food and drinks and pools and facilities are excellent. Lots to do ... or nothing to do. The hardest decisions were 1. Where to eat, 2. What to drink & 3. Pool or White Sand Beach. The only down side was the person at Reception for check-in did not speak or understand English that well, was distracted and led us to believe we were getting the type of room we asked for (Deluxe looking over the pools with a King bed and Day bed). We got a room looking out the side of the resort with 2 double beds. But ... we did get moved on day 4 after we kept on them and a romm became available. All of the entertanment and service was awesome ... from the Resteraunts to the pool to the beach. Here are some tips: 1. To get the most use out of the Catamaran Sailboat, Wind Surfers or Kayaks, make sure you get the instruction ($) doen at the beach on day 1 or 2 so you can use them for the rest of your stay. 2. Take advantage of the free 30 min Scuba instruction ... if you plan includes it. 3. Get up early to stake out your loungers at the Beach or by one of the Pools. Heck, you can sleep there in the shade during the day! 4. Make sure you try the Steak House (reservation required). It's really good! Make sure you try all the resteraunts and the buffet ... including the one right by the Beach. 5. Take in as many shows as you can at the Showtime Theatre. They are great! Ada is the best!! 6. If you have kids, take advantage of the Kids Club during the day (for younger ones) and the Teen Club during the evening. Take some time for you adults! 7. Don't forget to bring your own socks if you want to try out the bowling. 8. Don't be afrain to ask ... most of the workers are very friendly and helpful. Eat, drink (including lots of bottled water) and have a great time! We did and we will return!

They even gave us a bottle of wine and a bottle of Absoulute Vodka. Only complaint is that the shower drain didn't work very well, but it was like that in all of the rooms. Hotel staff treated all of the Americans to a fabulous dinner on the beach on Friday nite along with great entertainment. All in all, best vacation we have ever had. Wlill definitly stay there again next time we go.

Have travelled to the carribean a number of times. This time with a group of 3 couples. Loved the idea of having many activities and restaurants on site at the hotel. Beach was very clean and set up of the facility very nice. Entertainment staff was wonderful and very personable. Nighttime entertainment was excellent as well. Buffet food was very good and service from Michael Trinidad and Maria were excellent. Disappointed in the restaurant food quality other than the Dominican restaurant. Sports Bar/Bathrooms of restaurants smelled of backed up sewage. Pillows not very comfortable in the rooms. Overall nice resort, but didn't feel that it was worth what we paid comparing to other resorts.

Hola yo pase una semana en el cuarto numero 8327.Una cosa que me voy a recuerdar de su hotel es la amabilidad de sus empleados. Tambien el lugar esta muy padre. El sitio en general esta muy bien.Su servicio de internet en los habitaciones esta perfecto. Quiero felicitar algunos empleados que hicieron todo para sentirme como a mi casa. Uno es el Bellboy que se llama Omar Castillo que fue muy honesto y muy amable y ademas profesional en su trabajo. Tambien una senorita en el buffet que se llama Yuderkis Inoa Rodriguez. Igual por ella muy amable y profesional, siempre sonriendo . Fue igual por una de las personas que hicieron mi limpieza en mi cuarto, una fue Odelis Castro. Tambien fue a ver la doctara y se puso muy profesional y muy respectable por medio de sus servicios. Fue a ver la doctara por medio de una amiga que se desmallo y ella se se puso mas tranquilla con el bueno servicio de la doctora. En general me encento su hotel y la verdad lo voy a recomendar. Gracias a todos.

We found the accomodations to be very pleasant with the very big exception of the Beds. The BEDS WERE VERY HARD AND DIFFICULT TO SLEEP ON. The grounds were very well kept and well laid out. The seletion of foods and their preparation was very well done.

We arrived at the resort about 1pm on saturday and were very pleased with the ease and professional manner that we were checked in. Only complaint was that we did not get into our room until about 4:15, but it was worth the wait as the room was wonderful!!! Both pool and Ocean view from the 3rd floor in Villa 10. We met or butler Henri and his service during our entire stay was 5+ as was Carman, Belkis Edgar and Laura and the rest of the staff in the priviledge lounge and beach breakfast and lunch buffet areas. Service excellence kudos to Patricia and Francesca as well. These people worked professionally and dilligently around the clock to make our stay at the Ocean Sand PERFECT!!! Any one who has complaints about this resort must have VERy high expectations. The resort was 4+ food 3+ to 4 and service nothing but 5+ all the way!!!! We will be returning with our kids (18-21) next year as they would have a blast. Always events and activities going on for people of all ages!!! Make sure to take advantage of the "privilege" package as it is worth every last penny!!! See you next year my friend Henri. You are the best!!!!! Glenn and Karen

Our end of Jan 2011, all-inclusive visit to the Ocean Maya was great! Booked through the “Nolitour” travel agency and their info sessions were very helpful. The Ocean Maya had a huge selection of food, all very well prepared and presented. Experienced all three restaurants (superb) and two all-day buffets, coffee bar plus the separate awesome “Mikes Coffee” bar! (simply a MUST) Lots of activities including jet skiing, parasailing, snorkeling, scuba-diving (free lesson in pool!), FREE kayaking and catamaran sailing plus around the pool activities like Tai-Chi, Pilates, water volleyball, beach volleyball, swim up bar, poker (fun only), horseshoes, spa, (massage on the beach-nice!), dance lessons, Spanish classes PLUS many more things to do! Just check the poolside board for all the things happening OR... just lay around in the sun. There’s LOTS of it! Lorraina (one of many of the very pleasant hostesses) was a lot of fun! Great at getting you involved but not too pushy. Beat me at “Horseshoes”. The live stage entertainment was great, with a very Mexican flair and flying acrobatics. Jesselle, Susan and all the actors made you feel very welcome. Rooms were clean and functional, rich with marble everywhere. Grounds were groomed to perfection. Felt like paradise! WILL definitely go back! Gracias all! We give it A FIVE STAR RATING!! LD&TD

We just spent a wonderful week with six of our friends in Punta Cana! This was our second time, along with my sister and her husband, at this resort, having stayed in January 2009. The staff at this resort, the dominican people, are some of the nicest people we have met in the world! Our room #5106 was very nice, kept spotlessly clean by Francia. The wait staff were wonderful, the bartenders great, the reception very nice. We have absolutely nothing negative to say about the staff. We also complement the animation team for their hard work. It was very nice when we left to be given a shell necklace and wished a fond farewell and hope that we return. The "special reception" on Friday evening for the Americans was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! The food, entertainment and staff was top-notch! WOW, that night alone makes us want to return to Punta Cana and Ocean Blue. We've been to Punta Cana four times, two at Ocean Blue. Looking for an incentive from Ocean Blue to make us return to this resort as opposed to trying something new! Len & Pat Stepleman

great experience. my husband, our 4 children, and i stayed for 6 nights 7 days to celebrated my parents 40 wedding anniversary. the ceremony was on the beach where my parents renewed their vows. the staff are amazing, the resort is clean and lots of stuff for the whole family to do. there were 26 of us total ages 8-70. from beach to the "disco" it was all good. food and drinks were great for an all inclusive resort. the only complaint i have is that the pool closes @ 7 pm and some of the restaurants you had to pay an up charge (steak house/seafood). i would recommend this resort to anyone and i would return. i took over 800 pictures. also the excursions where fabulous especially the zip lining. its a must.

Hola, We loved the resort and will definitely return. The al a carte dining was great and we really appreciated that we did not need reservations. Mike's was a special treat and we enjoyed going there for after dinner coffee and desert most nights as well as in the afternoon for a frozen mocha. The property is lovely even though the room looked a little shabby, but since we came for teh sun, pool and beach this really was not a big issue. The only real improvement that we would suggest has to do with the use of the hospitality room due to a late pickup for the airport. If we were given towels at the time we picked up the key we could have avoided arriving at the room to find that there were no fresh towels for our shower. Luckily we were able to find a maid and get towels from her, but this really cut into our short time to shower and change. In some other resorts we have visited the towels for the hospitality rooms were handled this way and it was a very efficient way to make sure that everyone has a towel for the shower. Also when we went to have our showers to leave there were 4 woman still in the room getting ready and the room and bathroom were a soggy mess. We especially enjoyed the Christmas Eve party by the pools as well as the gala dinner that night in the buffet...GREAT JOB! Your bar staff, wait staff in the restaurants, animation crew as well as the maids and grounds keepers were all first rate. Service was always prompt and extremely pleasant. We'll be recommending this resort to our friends...in fact we already have. Thank you again for a wonderful holiday! Gracias, Leslie Thompson-Simmonds

My hsband and I spent a lovely week in your Privilege. On our day of departure, my husband had an attact and the doctor at the hotel suggested he go to the hospital in Cancun. Your staff could not have been more accomodating and caring. The life guard who took him out of bed and cared for him in the wheel chair was wonderful. I could not have done it myself. The receptionist in the Privilege dining room came and offered to send us food to take with us. The doctor was kind and caring. The women who was supervising the transition was lovely and stayed with us until the cab arrived. Our lugage was packed for us and sent with the Apple rep to Cancun and we were notified we did not need to come back to the Hotel to check out or take care of our bags. The clothes were carefully packed. We are extremely grateful to you for your care and concern. We certainly will return for our 5th visit in the near future and will heartily recomend the resort to our friends and neighbors. Linda and Albert Lengyel

Great staff - very courteous and pleasant. Very clean everywhere. Intimate size with the 2 storey duplex units. Never very far to any of the amenities including the beach, restaurants, pools, bars etc. Thought the food could have been a little more upscale; but the premium brand drinks were top drawer. Overall a 7.5 or 8.0.. Would definately return

Our family vacation to Ocean Blue & Sand was outstanding! The experience and service started from the moment we arrived until check out. While the majority of the staff was great two individuals stood out above all others. Henry Pineda took care of us like family and treated our kids like gold! His exceptional service should not go unnoticed. We have traveled the world and have never been treated better then by Henry. Our kids looked forward to seeing henry everyday. We can't say enough about his positive attitude, grace, thoughtfulness and always going the extra mile to accommodate us. We don't have Victor's last name but he also made our experience more enjoyable! Our kids loved the rock wall and he always made a point of it to let them climb the wall once or twice a day. He also took it upon himself to ackowledge our kids and make sure they enjoyed their experience. The food service was average at the buffet, but the restaurants designated for sit down were all enjoyable. We visited the coffee shop after every dinner for a warm drink and deserts which was always exceptional.

We loved our stay at the Ocean Blue and Sand! We brought 5 of our children with us aged 11 - 21 and everyone had a great time. We found the facilities clean and everyone loved Mike's Coffee house. There was lots of food variety to please all of our fussy eaters and everyone enjoyed the meals. We ate at the buffet for all of our meals and enjoyed the fresh fruit, local fare as well as theme nights. Everyone felt welcome all of the time; we have a special thank you to Luis Alb. who was just awesome!!!! The facilities are beautiful and the pools are great. The entertainment crew tried their best to keep everyone involved and having fun. The kids had lots of fun taking part in dancing, aerobics and crazy games. We had an issue with one of our rooms when we arrived, but guest services quickly had the room cleaned and we were in within an hour. I have to provide my most heartfelt thanks to the staff; one of our daughters realized 5 hours after check out that she had forgotten a very special teddy bear in her room; our bus was coming in 20 minutes to pick us up! The staff went out of their way to locate the bear and returned "teddy" to us in time to make our bus!!!! THANK YOU!!!! We have been recommending this resort to all of our friends who are looking for a place to go in the DR. We would be very happy to return and will try other Ocean resorts in other locations.

Hola! The Ocean Blue Resort was really nice! The food is great! There are many different restaurants to choose from and you did not need any reservations. All the staff everywhere, are very pleasant, polite and work hard. The beach is so preety and you can jump some waves. Fun! We played voleyball in the water and on the sand. There are many activities that you could choose from. When we were at the pool we stayed on the side with more activities. The pool bar was alot of fun and the staff there always made it special, great drinks too! Oh! and the entertainment during the day is great! If you enjoy working out try the water aerobics at 12:00 noon. You could also learn some dance moves with Reynaldo and the other staff. So much fun if you like dancing! Everyone at the pool is very pleasant. The staff want your stay to be enjoyable and certainly do make it happen. As well the lounge bar has some great entertainment, and some tasty beverages! If you like to dance you must go to the disco, you won't be disappointed! Martines and the other staff from the disco are super nice! No long wait for any drinks as they provide excellent service. The spa was also very nice and relaxing. The grounds are well kept. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The drinking water is excellent and always cold too. I would definately recommend this resort. It was so great to get away and relax and have some fun! Gracias, for a wonderful vacation Ocean Blue. I want to go back!

I loved my vacation. This was my first time in Mexico. What beautiful beaches and great weather. We only had one trouble. We booked tours, snorkeling and zip lines. The tours got us back to the resort around 3pm each day. None of the restaurants were open then. We had to order room service and it was a very limited menu. I totally recamend this resort and I know I will go back. Oh and Nellie in the gift shop was great help to us. What a nice gal. Thanks Krista

Excellent service is what made this hotel standout compared to many others in the area we have stayed at. Also, location is nice - close to Cancun and the airport and the lovely little fishing village of Puerto Morelos. Julian and Erika, waiter and hostess at the buffet for breakfast and dinner were both wonderful...and our favorite bartenders were Rocendo and Francisco! We look forward to returning soon!

What a wonderful time. We brought 2 other couples with us this time. Everyone agreed that the resort is top-notch. The restaurants are great, wonderful food, fantastic service. Pool and beach are absolutely beautiful. Lots of fun at the lunch buffet on the beach and at the pool bar. Cynthia in Privilege reception ia a doll, very helpful and friendly. Jose Santo at the pool bar was outstanding. The staff is what keeps us coming back to this resort. What a great bunch of people!! Also, can't wait to go back to see the new Privilege lounge. We're hooked!!

Hola a todos nuestros nuevos amigos en oceano maya. Gracias por un gran tiempo. We had a wonderful time at the Ocean Maya. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. My husband tried to learn a few words to help make communication easier with all staff, and they were wonderful with helping him learn new words. The resort is beautiful, and there is always something going on to keep you entertained. From Beach and Pool Volleyball to poker at the pool side, the entertainment staff are wonderful. The different performances the put on nightly are amazing. The food was so delicious. Gracias to the chefs, and all the staff that make your dining experiences so wonderful, and the bartenders that make any drink you could possibly want. Thank you to all the cleaning, grounds and repair staff. You make the place even more beautiful with all your hard work. The grounds, and villas are very well kept, and so beautiful. We had such a relaxing vacation, and I would highly recommend this resort to anyone. We will return to the Ocean Maya on our next visit to Mexico.

MY HUSBAND AND I STAYED AT THIS HOTEL LAST FEBRUARY AND WE MUST SAY THE THE HOTEL IS BEAUTIFUL. WE ALSO STAYED IN PUNTA CANA TWO YRS AGO AT PARADISSUS AND HAD A BETTER EXPERIENCE. OCEAN BLUE AND SAND CLAIMS TO BE A 5 STAR, BUT I REALLY WOULD GIVE IT A 3 STAR, DUE TO LACK OF SERVICE. WE HAD A FEW INCONVENIENCES AND OUR NEEDS WERE NOT MET HOW WE EXPECTED. WE ARE IN OUR TWENTIES AND NOT TOO PICKIE AT ALL WE REALLY DID NOT ASK FOR MUCH. THE FRONT DESK STAFF WE BELIEVE IS NOT WELL PREPARED. THE ENTERTAINMENT WAS GOOD THE FOOD WAS GREAT, AND HERE AND THERE YOU COULD FIND NICE STAFF MEMBERS, BUT BE PREPARED TO BUMP INTO PEOPLE WITH ATTITUDE PROBLEMS.WE WON"T BE STAYING AT THAT HOTEL AGAIN!!

I had the time of my life while staying at the resort. The service was amazing, the food was endless and the smiles were as bright as the sun which was shining everyday. It has been now a year since I've been back but will be returing in April for my bday and hoping to have the same experience. I wish all those who do stay at this hotel a wonderful time oh don't tip 20.00 US I did that everyday and didn't realize how much I was really tipping them; however these employee surely deserve it and it was worth every penny.

This was our family's first time at this resort and the Domincan Republic. The service was impeccable hats off to the staff at the resort. The resort was neat and tidy, very clean compared to other resorts we had seen walking the beach. We specifically would like to thank Luis R from your staff who took very good care of us, we will certainly be back next year.

My wife and I came down for our 10 year anniversary at Ocean Coral & Turquesa in room #7304. It was by far the best experience we ever had at an all inclusive hotel. The rooms were extremely clean and modern. The pools were very clean and comfortable with the warm weather. There were many food choices/restaurants to select from even for the picky eater. The services thru out the hotel were always with a smile and the tipping came very easily and was greatly deserved and appreciated. We will definitly be returning with our children to utilize the daisy club and bring other family members with to enjoy the experience. Thanks for the memories....

We had a wonderful time at Ocean Blue.We have been to 3 other resorts in Dominican Republic which we thought were good but this one tops them all. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We are seniors in our 70s and were treated with so much respect and help. We found the food to be very good with lots of fresh vegetables meat and fish. We spent most of our time at the buffet and visited Route 66 one time. Although this is a large resort we had a trolley to take us to each area much needed in the heat. All the bars were superb but our favorite was the lobby which was beatifully decorated with comfortable lounges. This was a first all inclusive for our friends as they want to return in January they were extremely impressed. Say hello to Raquel ,Marionella ,Luis in fact everyone there who were like family. Hope to see them in the New Year or maybe try Mexico.

hotel was beautiful staff was great especially bell captn, Benjamin and ernesto, best waitress Ileana who always had a smile. Food was great. Only thing missing from this resort is the lack of a hot tub for those cool nights when you would like to relax and enjoy the star studded skies. Will return to this resort the minute you install one.

I travel often and this was my first visit to mexico. I cant even begin to describe how wonderful my stay was. The hotel had exceptional service. There was never a time that one employee didnt cater to my every need. The price was reasonable food was delcious. The people of the hotel really made my stay worthwhile. Everything was clean. I reccomend this hotel to everyone.

From the begining, we were impressed with the hotel decor, views and hospitality. We paid for priviledge service and IT IS WORTH IT! The resort seemed to be central to all the excursions. The food was great. You should realize that "you are not in Kansas anymore." I would recommend this resort for families and relaxation. Very traquil and laid back

Just got back from the best vacation we've had in 3years! The hotel is very impressive in its decor, hospitality and amenities. The minute we arrived we felt welcome. We had reserved a privilege junior suite, however they over-booked them so we were upgraded to a master suite with a beach front view. I recommend to every one to pay the extra money to get the privilege amenities. We were surprised to walk in our room the first night to find a chilling bottle of champagne and a fruit platter in which we used in our jaccuzi tub on our private patio. The food for the most part was ok. I had to remind myself that " I wasn't in Kansas anymore, Toto!" The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating to our needs. The activities were fun and the location of the hotel seemed central to all the excursions.

This was our 4th family vacation to mexico, and 1st to Rivera Maya/Cancun. It was wonderful. This was without a doubt the best resort we have stayed at. The rooms were big, clean and wonderful. The service was wonderful. The food was wonderful. We were 100 % satisfied and look forward to returning in the future. Special thanks to Victor Mendez, head waiter, Natali, waitress at Score Bar and Cristian at Score Bar. Ernesto at the swim up pool bar.

We wish to express our gratefulness to the fine attention of the staff, housekeeping, restaurants (mainly the Japanese restaurant). Always warm and greeting when asking if everything were well and not forgetting the waiters. I congratulate the extreme cleaning in all the hotel areas. My family and I spent a great week enjoying all the services offered.

El servicio fue exelente, exelentes facilidades. No fue de nuestro agrado el certamen Miss Ocean 2009 que se hizo en el teatro el martes 9 de junio, fue de muy mal gusto que como parte del concurso las personas del público le entregaran su ropa íntima a las concursantes, ya que estas tienen mayor valor, la cultura dominicana al igual que la cultura latinoamericana es muy rica, ustedes pueden hacer espectáculos de calidad exaltando la cultura. No tenemos que llegar a la vulgaridad para entretener. Janice y Tomás
