We also consider ouselves VERY lucky to have selected the Ocean Breeze Nuevo Vallarta, among the many we considered. From January 5 thru 13 we had the great pleasure of experiencing the wonderful staff, very clean and nice rooms, nice pool, great food and beach a stone's throw away. We agree with the reviews by Sonja D, from Medicine Hat, Canada, BoltonInxc from Toronto, Canada and the many others who have but positive things to say about this resort. What a great place for a great price. The old cliché "If it seems to good to be true...it probably is" cannot be applied in this case. Should we ever decide to return to the Nuevo/Puerto Vallarta area on one of our annual trips to warmer climates, the Ocean Breeze will be at the top of the list. Tip appropriately folks! The waiters, maids and all the hotel staff more than earn it. Many of us have no qualms at all going out for a $100 or more supper up here, and leaving a 10% - 20% tip. You don't have to tip that much down there, but don't be a skin-flint either. You will be pampered beyond any expectation by tipping generously. Talk about being able to relax! As others have already mentioned, by being a smaller resort and partial time-share, the younger often loud, partying 'till all hours crowd does not exist. The pool is more than adequate and the beach is wonderful. Again, being a smaller resort, there are always pool or beach loungers available. Tip as you should, and you will never want for a drink or a cold cerveza whether laying by the pool or spread out on the beach. There are a few locals passing by with their wares for sale, but they are minimal and are not annoying and aggressive like in some other places. So, what's the down side? Not much. There are no small bar fridges in the rooms or coffee makers, which can be a bit annoying if one wants to keep their refreshments cold. But Miguel or any of the other waiters at the bar will be more than happy to fill up a bucket with cold beer and ice for you to take back to your room. The restaurant doesn't open 'till 7:00am, so to have a caffiene fix in the early morning before heading out for the day or for an excursion or tour is difficult. If you do decide to sign up for an adventure, Vallarta Adventures is there daily and will be more than happy to accomdate. There are no pickups right at the hotel for anything you sign up for, but Vallarta Adventures is only a short and pleasurable 10 minute walk away, or a 25 peso taxi ride. Even though you are provided with a wrist band that indentifies you as all-inclusive, you still need to provide your room number and sign your bill for each meal and the drinks you consume. But these are all minor annoyances, and the peacefulness, quality of the resort,wonderful food and fantastic staff by far outweighs them. If you have a couple of thousand dollars you are having trouble deciding what to do with...it would be a shame if you didn't book an all-inclusive to the Sea Garden Ocean Breeze, Nuevo Vallarta.
Ocean View, as high as possible.
