We made a reservation to stay at OceanoMar for 3 nights with the understanding that the hotel had air conditioning, as indicated on Trip Advisor. When we arrived, we discovered that the rooms do not, in fact, have air conditioning. Whether this miscommunication was the fault of Trip Advisor or of the hotel, I cannot say. However, I am glad that we had not put down a deposit, and I wish that Trip Advisor had accurate information about the facilities at OceanoMar. I was really looking forward to staying there and disappointed that Trip Advisor painted a completely false picture of this beautiful hotel.
We truly enjoyed our stay at OceanoMar. It was very family friendly (kids 10 & 13) with a great pool and a restaurant on site. We did have to get two rooms for the four of us, but the cost was still quite reasonable. The view is magnificent! Staff was super friendly and helped us with transportation and tours. It is walkable to town with a coffee shop at the bottom of the hill where one can grab a frappe or drink. The rooms were very comportable with windows that allowed for a good breeze and a small patio. It is nicely appointed with plenty of storage, a desk/table, and a lovely shower. Communication prior to stay was great!! I highly recommend OceanoMar for the rooms, amenities, location, but most of all the wonderful people there!
If the owners spent just a bit more it would be fantastic. The setting and view is gorgeous. the rooms are nice and with not much effort they would be perfect. place needs a little upkeeping. Staff (of 2) is very helpful and amicable, but they are gone by 3 pm. Finished your water bottle and Need more water...walk at least 10 mins on dirt road up and down a hill to get some. We changed rooms, the small one is tiny, the suites are much better. Housekeeping takes forever to clean your room and watch for your beach towels, you will use them every day. If you leave them out, theyll be in the same place all week. Breakfasts are good but the kitchen needs some cleaning asap.
It really is paradise here So relaxing by the pool with a lovely view The en-suite room was big,clean and comfy The food was magnificent Note there is no wood fired pizza oven The staff were incredibly helpful and thank you Dorian and Lydia The guests seemed to mix well Be aware if you struggle to walk you will need a taxi to get you to and from from Mazunte The taxis are cheap and readily available
We traveled to Mazunte with our 4-year-old son to relax in the warmth and visit with lifelong friends who return to the town every winter-- this year their usual rental house was not available so they stayed at OceanoMar, and of course it was the natural choice for us too. It couldn't have been more perfect! Our room was lovely and spacious, our king bed was very very comfortable, our private balcony with hammock perfect for lazy afternoons, and the view of Merimahita beach was breathtaking. Every morning we saw humpbacks or orcas from the restaurant. Yes you can hear the wonderful, glorious ocean at all times-- definite bonus! Dorian, Letitia, Lidia and staff made us feel so comfortable, and it really was like a home... the food was always delicious-- try the vegetarian lasagna!! -- and prepared with a smile. My son spent hours a day in the gorgeous and well-maintained pool, it was easy to monitor him in the shallow wading section, and he's come home a bona-fide swimmer as a result. The staff let us borrow a corner of the fridge for leftovers and kid snacks which was much appreciated. We spent many lovely evenings visiting and playing cards up at the restaurant after hours with the baby monitor set up, and not a care in the world. I would go back in a heartbeat!…
