“Great time, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This was my second time here and i'm just reinstating what i posted last year. This is not a five star resort and it is reflected in the price. The place slowly being renovated, restaurant was ok, but the service makes up for it. The staff is nice and helpful. We had a great time last year ,this year,and i'm sure we will have a great time next year. I feel it could not do better for the price we paid. If you're looking for a nice vacation at a resonable price this is the place. They have a very nice pool and bar thats beach front. A great wait staff that makes you feel comfortable. Thank You Ocean Palace See you next year.

Hotel was laid back and perfect. Not a lot of activities for the kids but they enjoyed the pool and ocean. Inexpensive and clean. Staff was courteous and accomodating. We met Tonny was very helpful for planning our day trips. We rented a 2 room suite with small kitchen. We also tasted the breakfast buffet and it was great! Room smelled a little musty, but that is expected when right on the beach I guess. We would stay at this hotel again.

Upon arrival I immediately planned to change hotels as this is an older somewhat dumpy looking 2nd or3rd class place. Cheaply furnished with pink dressers,etc. Our suite had twin beds in living room and no couch. My family was ok with it and agreed to stay a couple days and try it and we came to like it for what it is. After all our room had a nice balcony overlooking the ocean.

Great location on the beach with many highly rated restaurants a very short walk away. Plenty of palapas on the beach and no shortage of chaise lounges. Drinks very inexpensive and good menu of poolside fare. The staff is great and it is clean.

So if you want a gold star resort keep looking but if you're comfortable with Mexican funky it has many good points.

We stayed for 6 days in Oceano Palace, It was directly on the beach, The front desk there was amazing. Always there to help, friendly and willing to chat about anything. Very helpful with directions and things to do. the room was fine, clean and had wifi. The beach was really nice, walking on the beach they had banana boating, parasailing and jet skiing for very reasonable prices. Even though it wasnt the best resort in the world if offered what we were looking for..Thank you!

Our second stay here was more than expected. We had a suite it was basic, but great. The beds were super firm, a kitchenette, with a beautiful balcony. Excellent service and very good fare. has a nice beach. A very restful sleep to the sound of the waves.

Rooms were plain and simple but provided a comfortable place to sleep with excellent ocean view. The location is fantastic. The buffet breakfast is varied and delicious with lots of authentic Mexican dishes. the staff is friendly.

Not likely to come back. The staff was great but the bed not so much. And we had to suffer night after night of someone pulling up outside between 1 and 3 AM and blasting the stereo. Towels? It was carnival and I am sure that was part of the reason for the shortage. The pool and hot tub were cooler than the ocean...the room was either cleaned twice a day in quick succession or not at all. In conclusion, very bare bones, loud at night, with a terribly uncomfortable bed and no towels.
