I'm a travel agent who stayed here on a FAM trip to the Mayan Riviera and I saw about 40 other properties. We were literally the only people in the hotel. The staff was very helpful and accommodating, always answering our questions and tending to all of our needs.
There is only 1 a la carte restaurant at this property but all the food was quite delicious, if you're here for 7 nights you will most definitely get to try everything on the menu. The "delicatessen" is basically non existent.
The rooms were average but very spotless, I thought the bathroom was nicely upgraded. Since the property was so empty, there were some spiders in the room, a couple cockroaches outside- but this is Mexico so it's expected. The wifi is very spotty and isn't attainable in most of the rooms, sometimes in the hallways but mostly in the lobby.
The beach is indeed a 15min shuttle ride away to the Mayan Palace which is definitely a downfall if you're looking for a beach vacation. The beach itself is very rocky (Mayan Riviera does have the second largest barrier reef in the world) so please bring some water shoes. I hear there is fantastic scuba/snorkelling.
The Mayan Palace has a 24 hour pool, unlimited golfing, numerous restaurants & a buffet. There is no disco on either property and Playa del Carmen is a 25 minute cab ride away. For the cost of the Ocean Breeze you can definitely find something that is better value.
