“Fantastic 10 nights away”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

Excellent hotel, large rooms and always kept spotless. This hotel is part of a large complex but the Ocean breeze is a small sister hotel, some times we had the pool to our selves. the only criticism I can think of is that the food was a bit tedious after a week as we only ate in the Italian restaurant as we we rent really sure which other restaurants we could eat at at the larger complex.

The Ocean Breeze is a small resort on a very large resort property. It has a lobby, pool, restaurant and snack bar and that is about it. However, you can take a cart over to the Mayan Palace/Grand Mayan area and use their facilities. The carts are actually Mayan Palace carts that extend their trip a little to serve the Ocean Breeze. The rooms are new and very nice. It is separated by enough jungle to appear completely isolated. It is laid-back and quiet, but you can go over to a very large active resort area with lots of people and amenities. It has an all-inclusive option which only includes two poolside restaurants, one there and one by the Riviera Mayan. I have seen very good deals at the Grand Mayan, but the expense of food at their restaurants was too high with no All-inclusive option. This may be a very good alternative. Now I see a week at the Ocean Breeze, all-inclusive on TA at a very good price.

Room Tip: The 3rd floor has the more expensive rooms. The only difference I saw is a mini-refrigerator.

The hotel itself, the staff and the grounds are all good - no complaints. Our challenge with Ocean Breeze is simply the location.

The developers bought this property for a song as it's not really convenient from either Cancun or Playacar and there's no beach, yet they fully developed the site from the federal highway all the way to the water with dozens of apartment blocks (time shares), golf courses, restaurants and pools. Watching folks timidly find their way among the rocks and waves, after zipping down from their unit in the communal golf carts, told the story. Buy a bit of rocky shoreline for cheap, built lots of pools, a network of paths for the communal shuttles, restaurants and shops and sell, sell, sell. The pools are plentiful and open late, but if after flying a few thousand miles for a conveniently located beach, this is not the place. Take your time, be patient and keep looking.

Room Tip: Ask for a fridge if you want to keep food and drink cold.

We got a great last minute deal here, and stayed for one night. The hotel ambiance is very nice, although they make you wear little bracelet (not sure why - nothing was really included with it). Part of a large gated community on a golf course, oceanside. Very well maintained grounds - the place is very spread out with several other resorts in the complex. Rooms were spacious and modern and very comfy. The pool was great and super warm. To get to the eating area ($100/meal - so a little pricey and could add up for an extended stay) you had to take a little golf cart shuttle. There were little kiosk shops set up, bands playing, board games set out, baby crocodile hatchery to see.... it was nice. Did not notice any special kids activities, but saw gym, photography and spa services, and they looked modern and wonderful. Very safe and fine for a short stay over.

easy checkin process. very clean. Gustov at the front desk went out of his way on several occasions to make our life easier, he deserves a raise!!

poor cell service and poor wifi so dont plan on getting much of either. and there is a charge for using the phone in your room

shuttles to take you to various places come freq and the doormen were awesome.
at one time our water was off but it was brief and addressed very quickly.

only one resturant on the premises included in the all inclusive pkg food was very good and I think we tried everything on the menu at one point or another.
small "deli" near the front desk always had muffins pastries and juice coke coffee 24/7
wait staff very very attentive, they dont speak perfect english but they are usually able to figure out what you need drinks seemed good not watered down.
beautiful landscape one pool for this hotel. ocean is a shuttle ride away and then a short walk

extra charge for spa and fitness center at sister hotel and extra charge for interent also
it is quiet and removed from the main stream large open hallways large rooms clean
very small deck but we werent out there much anyway.

I am staying here at O.B. for the second year in a row. As part of the beautiful Riviera Maya Hotel compound it has all the amenities one could ask from 5 star resort. The pools, the spas, shopping and entertainment are all first rate there. However, the best thing about O.B. is it is removed from the main center of the resort with it's own quiet pool, bar and restaurant where everyone seems to know your name after a few days. When I am here I feel like I am at my own vacation home and the employees and atmosphere is like friends and family.

Room Tip: upper floors on building one

This was our first time visiting Ocean Breeze in riviera maya. I travelled with my wife and stayed here for 7 days. We read the read the reviews previously and thought we would give it try. We were very pleasantly satisfied with this resort!
Food: Breakfast was a buffet style. You order from a menu for lunch and dinner. Food was great! You can also order food at the Mayan Palace's pool.
Pools: There is a small pool on the resort. But the mother resort (Mayan Palace) is a city of pools in which you can use.
Beach: In front of resort the beach contains lots or coral. A short 15 minute walk west of the resort there is a very white/powdery sand beach. Many people were feeding fish with bread which attracted tropical fish, easy to see through the torquoise water.
Room: Exhaust fan in bathroom was not working even after maintenance staff tried to fix it (which clouded up all the windows and glass). Room was clean, good house keeping, no fridge, no coffee maker (but in lobby there is coffee and snacks 24/7), always had hot water, soap and shampoo was provided.
Staff: Very friendly and helpful with directions. They also taught us a bit of spanish!
