1. All but one restaurant was terrible. We purchased a lobster tail that was priced at 690 pesos and not only was it burnt and impossible to eat they charged us 1200 and management wouldn’t make it right. 2. My 5 family members all had stomach issues at this resort. We have been to Mexico multiple times and have never had this problem before. 3. Our son ran into a pole at the resort (area was dark and not lit for safety). He obtained a laceration above his right eye that needed stitches. The on-site Doctor, “ Dr. David” referred him to Hospiten a local private hospital. Little did we know Dr. David and the resort are tied to this hospital. There is either shared ownership or kickbacks going on here. What would cost $200 In the USA for 4 stitches cost us $2,800. Total Rip off!!! We would have left and sought out treatment elsewhere but given it was midnight in a foreign country and my son was bleeding and exhausted we were trapped. They took complete advantage of us. Shameful. If you run a Honest and Quality Hotel you should recruit some of Ocean Riviera’s housekeeping and waitstaff. They along with the sports activity crew we’re the best thing they had going for them.

Hotel's Favorite
It is my 3rd time with my family at ORP, but first time during covid. I can say , ORP always have the nicest and attentive staff. Special mentioned to Ariz, our butler, she took care of every minor issues we had in our room, booked all our dinners, always available and a good communicator, thru whats app. Also, Ramon at the Privilege beach, he was always there to assist us , from sanitizing to putting linens on our daybed throughout our 7 days stay. Thanks to Baltazar, our favorite waiter at Pez Vela restaurant, for always wearing his beautiful smile , good humor and very welcoming attitude, and of course taking of our drink orders all the time. Irving at the Margarita bar is awesome too. These employees deserve a recognition, and managers at ORP , hopefully, you give them raises and bonuses, lol. They deserve it👏🙌 Food is great, we were able to try all the restaurants, thanks to Ariz . Beach is free of seaweeds on our last 3 days of stay, I just wished that they paved and cleaned the privilege area better, as it was not looking good, with all the dried seaweeds and uneven sand elevations left in front of the daybeds.( unlike the resort next door it was cleaned and sand was leveled better). I also missed the great nightly entertainment, understandable due to covid,although the fireshow one night was great. I loved the massage on the beach , tried all the different colors, 4 x / week, the pink, white and yellow massage therapists lol,and I highly recommend the yellow ones. Letty is an an excellent massage therapist! Overall, I still love ORP, despite the covid situation, the staff continues to work hard to make every guest stay wonderful.

This is my 7th time staying at an Ocean resort and this one was just as lovely. My husband and I stayed here we decided to pay extra to be privilege. We came here in hopes to meet a wedding planner and pick a location for our second wedding. This option was ABSOLUTELY worth it. Our butler Ariz was an absolute angel. She made our entire trip magical. She was so helpful and she went above and beyond. She planned all of the romantic surprises I had with my husband and I can't explain to you how easy she made our lives. The wildlife on the resort is a huge seller for us. Monkeys and other little animals running around the whole resort was an excursion by itself. The privilege lounge was AMAZING the food was great the entire trip. The staff in privilege were wonderful. We are so excited to book our wedding here! Also the private beach for privilege was a dream! Also sorry but the upgrade of the liquor was so worth it! Great selection. it was truly private and comfortable. Heres a little breakdown for a fast read: PROS: Privileged amenities and service ARIZ Wildlife Buffet is good! Steakhouse Rooms are beautiful Lots of food options Room service Drinks were well made! Liquor was strong CONS: Service is slow VERY humid room Dirty pools (they must redo the pools they're falling apart) No good Mexican food? (where was the tacos) Not enough entertainment frequency of shuttles (resort is HUGE) staff could be more personable (at every other resort I stayed at they were nicer! and they actually engaged with me) (without Ariz this would have been a huge factor in not coming back) Beach is SO rocky (painful to get into the water)

Horrible experience! Do not stay at this hotel with very deceptive and dishonest practices. We booked directly through their website and is it listed "FREE CANCELATION". In the reservation email I received, again, it listed that cancelation is free. However, once I called to cancel (well before the cancellation date) as our travel plans changed, we were told that we will be charged between 0%-12% administration fee, which was only listed in the Terms and Conditions, buried in heavy text that no one reads. So it is NOT A FREE CANCELATION as we had to pay $60. It would have been very simple to state "FREE CANCELATION LESS A 3.5% ADMIN FEE" at the point of sale, in plain language. Also, my reservation email and my cancelation email came without an actual dollar amount... So I have no idea what was actually refunded to me. This strategy of hiding extra fees is highly deceptive and very short-sighted. They have lost a potential customer and will likely lose others due to bad reviews.

This is our 3rd time here and it is fabulous again. We were a little worried about safety protocols, but it is same here as in Ontario, Canada. Everyone in Cancun airport and outside is double vaccinated and wearing masks. At the resort, all staff wears masks, even if they are outdoors. We are required to wear masks indoors unless we are sitting at a table. We are also required to wear our mask on the transportation to and from the beach. They provide us plastic gloves to use at the buffet. While it is hot to wear masks, we are pleasantly surprised! The resort itself is operating at about 30%, but we have been well taken care of. We might have to wait a bit longer for some things, but it is very understandable. A big shout out to Luis and Francisco at the El Beso pool bar. And Victor at Amaranthe. So happy to be back here!
