“Beautiful hotel, excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Excellent hotel, beautiful swimming pools. The restaurants are very nice as well as the food.
We stayed 5 nights and we always had different plates in the tematic restaurants.
We didn´t like the bathrooms. There are not doors separating the tube from the room.
There are only partial glass doors in the toilet and the shower, so the bathroom itself is not private.
The only problems in the hotel is that the places in the beach or around the swimming pool are very difficult to find since everybody puts a towel early in the morning (8 or before) and when you go there later, all places are occupied.
The entertainment is very good during the day and the night. There are music every night to dance in one of the swimming pools, however this pool is all day occupied by people drinking so it´s not really a pleasant place to be, even during the day.
The tours to the sorrounding places are really expensive (100 U$S minimum p/p) and they take all day, so you really miss one day in the hotel. However, Chichen Itza is superb, but it´s a pity to take all day long for that.
Take care at the airport. There are official salesmans trying to cheat you and get money to visit a resort using the excuse of getting cheaper prices for the tours. (it´s not true)
The service is excellent and the staff is very friendly.

Dear Saxon120,
We are truly thankful for your kind comments regarding the beauty of our facilities, the variety in our food and restaurants offer and our entertainment offer. We regret that the design of our bathrooms made you feel uncomfortable. Please allow us to inform that this issue has been analyzed and we are working in order to aid this situation. Regarding your comment about the beach and pool chairs, we like to inform that we count with a complete stock of them in order to cover the entirety of guest staying at our resort. Furthermore, our resort does not encourage the reservation of chairs, but the contrary. Even so, we have bought a new stock of lounge chairs in order to aid this situation. We are truly thankful for taking your time to share your experience about your stay at our resort, and we will be glad to host you one more time for your next visit.
Best regards,

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Just got back this week from our two week vacation at the Ocean Coral. At first we noticed the small problems, but decided to not worry about them and focus on having fun. The evening shows were good, with very hard working entertainers, who seemed to be working 12 hr. days. They spent all day around the resort giving lessons and all kinds of entertainment and then the evening show. I would like to give our favorite waiter Ottileo a thank you. Our favorite bar tender was Juan at the pool bar. He worked harder and faster than anyone, anywhere.

The resort was small enough to easily get around to the pool, beach, restaurants etc. We would have liked to find a place that was slightly quieter some days at the pool, but enjoyed the activities. We never put our towels out in the early morning and we always found loungers somewhere. If you had a larger group it might be needed, but not for 2 people. This place was very clean. They washed everything constantly. The food was very good. Enough choices everyday. Our favorite restaurant was the outside Italian restaurant that did flambees. WONDERFUL. The only restaurant that we did not eat at was the American Route 66. Other people's reviews made us feel that it wasn't worth trying. We were able to eat most nights at the different A La Cartes and only spent a few dinners at the Buffet. We would recommend this hotel. But don't forget to get the dehumidifier for your room. We had to empty it at least once a day as it was to the top. Our only small complaints was the hardness of the mattress. It definitely needed some sort of topper. The ceiling fan was crazy, so we could not use it. And lastly the resort looked slightly worn. I guess because they were cleaning it so often, upholstery does not stand up forever.

Usually I stay at these all inclusive resorts for the beach and the restaurants, but the entertainment here is surprisingly entertaining. My family and I were bored one night and stopped by the theater one night for a reproduction of Grease and returned every night!

We arrived at the Ocean Coral and Turqusa resort on March 6, 2013 and stayed until the 16th. We had a gorgeous beachside wedding ceremony on Saturday March 9th. We had 20 guest that were able to make the trip as well. Ana Bautista and her wedding crew (Cynthia and Claudia) were outstanding. They did everything from ensuring the beach decor was set up, ordering our flowers, coordinating music (letting us customize our own), setting up for a champaign toast, ordering or photographer, scheduling hair and makeup appointments at the spa on the resort, scheduling the reception, and ordering our wedding cake. We had dinner/reception at the Marina Grill. The restaurant has a very beachy/open environment that overlooks the pool and palm trees. For dinner we had a Carribean grill that included steak, chicken, vegetables, and a baked potato. Nearly all the guests commented on how great dinner was. The wedding cake was delicious. We ordered coconut. We had a staff at the restaurant that were dedicated to getting us drinks and ensuring things were taken care of. The wine that was served was a bit watered down, but perhaps I say that because we are big wine drinkers at home. After the wedding we had a few drinks in the lobby bar which was always a great place to hang out. There is a large seating area and sometimes live entertainment. By far, the lobby was the most active lobby we have ever seen. To our advantage, on Saturdays at 10:30pm there is a live Latino band that plays at the Pool Bar. All of our guests relocated to the Pool Bar for a night of dancing to live music. Back in Chicago, to have a live band play at your wedding can cost up to $3,000. For us, it was FREE. It was the best night of our lives. We ended up staying for another week. We read many reviews before planning our trip and all the negative comments that we took note of noticed that all were quite petty. There was always a sun bathing chair to sit/lay in by the pool. The entire staff was incredible. Probably the best customer service I have ever seen. People were willing to do anything to make you happy. We had much appreciation for several members of the wait staff. One being, and that we still talk about til this day is Luis at Le Creperie. He was amazing!! We had our "dinner under the stars" a few days after our wedding there and Luis took care of us. He treated us like rockstars. Constantly making sure our glasses were filled. Our table was clean, and even took a few pictures for us. Our room was incredible. We stayed in the Honeymoon suit which included 2 rooms. A TV room and the master bedroom. There was a hot tub on our patio. It was a bit difficult to figure out how to run it, but with a quick call to the Privledge desk, someone was on their way to help. We also did a few excursions through the resort. I felt the safest booking through the resort even though there might have been some other places on the beach that sold for cheaper. We swam with the dolphins....no words for it beyond AWESOME!! I have never done something like that before and I highly recommend it. We also took a catamaran to Isla Mujeras. For $80 the excursion included transportation to and from, catamaran ride, open bar, lunch, snorkling, swim with a friendly shark, and stop for shopping on the island. The whole excursion was from 9-5pm and a great way to spend the day. Couple of tips for those that will be vacationing here soon: bring larger cups for drinks by the pool. We brough some Turvis Tumblers. The staff will fill any cup you give them. For drinks--ask for a double, they will give it to you. If you have the means, pay for the PRIVLEDGE status. You get top shelf drinks and it makes a difference. We would highly recommend the Ocean Coral and Turquesa. The entire experience is one that we will never forget and hope to make it back there again.

Really enjoyed the evening entertainment put on by Gustavo, Didier, Maybritt, Erica, Israel, Hugo, Nelly Raul and Lauro!!

We had our second visit to OCT Mayan last week with our 4 kids and had a terrific time. The entire staff was extremely helpful and accommodating especially Veronica at the kids pool bar and Erica and Ursa and Maibritt at Daisy Land. The Disney show they put on that included all 4 kids was the cutest thing I've ever seen. Thanks so much for giving us another great vacation! Can't wait to come back next year.

We just got back from the resort last week and had a wonderful time. It is the perfect resort for families. I don't know if I would suggest it for a honeymoon though. Very clean and the food was amazing. A little annoyed how people save loungers but it is what it is we still had a fabulous vacation. Lots of activities and the entertainment staff did amazing involving the ones that wanted to be involved. I would recommend if you have small children and are going to hang at the Daisy Club to ask for a room on that side of the resort.
