Ocean Blue Sand

The Ocean Blue and Sand Hotel is more like a village than a hotel, and with a beachfront setting, there’s no need to travel anywhere once you arrive. It’s set right on the magnificent Bavaro Beach, so you’re just a short stroll from your room to the white sands. The villas, decorated in muted Caribbean colours curl around the two huge pools. Inside, the suites have all the mod-cons for a comfy stay. Upgrade to more luxurious suites if you’re here on a special occasion – some even come with a whirlpool bath. The lagoon-like pools have a sandy beach and a swim-up bar, as well as surrounding sunbeds and a restaurant. There are five further restaurants, ranging from American diners to Mexican and steak, as well as six bars and a coffee shop. Activities are in abundance with scuba-diving and snorkelling to sailing, deep-sea fishing and kayaking. When you’re ready to relax, head to the Despacio Spa Centre for massages by the sea!

Overview of Bavaro, Dominican Republic

Holidays to the Dominican Republic stand for three things: sun, sea and sand. There’s no greater location for this than the Ocean Blue Sand Hotel in Bavaro. With a huge beach and chilled-out Caribbean nights, you’ll soon settle into this town’s slow pace of life and laid-back atmosphere. Bavaro is a small town but there’s plenty to do. Its beach is the main focus, thanks to sugar-white sands and turquoise waters. Many say that this ten-kilometre stretch is one of the best beaches in the Caribbean – and it’s easy to see why. When you’re not lounging on the sands, try your hand at golf on the nearby 18-hole course or take horse treks across the beach. A day trip to the Del Este National Park is a must-do activity to get a feel for the subtropical environment that Bavaro is set in.
