Our family(5 couples,3 children and 91 year old grandmother) just arrived home from Ocean Coral(which is the privilege club and H10 membership area) The facilities are lovely, well groomed and beautiful. Our only complaints were the Theater which strangely was indoors and hot and the Spa which again had no outdoor component.Rooms were lovely and spacious. Outdoor showers and Jacuzzi were a nice touch- and the butlers were happy to fill them when required.
The pools were plentiful and there choices for everyone.The special beach area was great!!
Enrique was the best bartender- very professional and always a smile!!
The beach was well tended and no seaweed until quite far out, good for snorkeling.
Great beach to walk on- you can walk to the town appx 5 km away- lovely town -very friendly.
Food-
The restaurants were all quite good- my favorite was the Mexican followed by the Italian. The Japanese was predicable. The steak and seafood was my least favorite- the lobster was a little tough and the steak was okay. The presentation was excellent and the quality fine.
The staff were great- Alejandro made sure all of our needs were met! I would highly recommend
this resort! We hope to return

The staff at the Ocean Coral & Turquesa gave excellent service. The hotel was very clean. The entertainment staff kept you busy and was a lot of fun. The shows were great too. I would highly recommend this resort.

We went to this resort from April 3 until April 17th. This is our 6th time in Cancun area and this was the best by far. The room we were given was in building 16, it was very clean and Maginola did a wonderful job. To our surprise a humidifer was brought in the second day and it made the room very comfortable. we ate a lot at the buffet and Blanca was the evening server and she and others made it really special every night we ate there. we enjoyed the variety and the different theme nights. We ate at the crape restaurant and they were very good despite the one night there was a strong wind and the lettuce was flying off the plate. We spent all our time on beach and Gabrial and Angelica were the best, making sure we always had a drink. everyone was so friendly and they all work very hard and long hours. WWe loved this place so much that we plan on coming again next year and in 2014 celebrating our 50 anniversary by brining our children and grandchildren to this great place. I could say so much more but from check in to check out this was a wonderful place!

Stayed: April 2012

Absolutely awful, awful experience. You could not pay us to return here. We are not picky travelers and generally stay at Best Westerns if we travel, if that tells you anything. First we arrived at the resort and the bell boys wouldn't stop hounding us to take our luggage. We didn't feel comfortable with them taking it and had to tell them repeatedly to stop grabbing at it. Now I will go step-by-step through our experience:

Front Desk
Check-in. We owed $900 for the all-inclusive ammenities and they charged us $1700. After 30 minutes of trying to figure out how to refund our card, they tell us we have a room with two double beds. I tell them it is our honeymoon and then they start sighing with frustration and go to get a manager. After another 20 minutes, they get us in a room with one queen bed.

Room
Beds are not "firm"...they are ROCK HARD. I would have been more comfortable sleeping in a lounge chair. See the problem this presents on a honeymoon? The room itself is clean and nice-looking, but you soon begin to realize the severe lack of accomodations in the room. The frosted glass shower and bathroom stall door leave little to the imagination and I hope your number two smells like roses otherwise it will permeate the room with ease.

Food
Minus the Tepanyaki Japanese restaraunt, everything was extremely average or below average. The buffet lacks in American cuisine and is very European which is okay if you like that, but don't expect any cereal, waffles, etc. The American restaurant was disgusting and had plain, unseasoned and cold food (burgers, hot dogs). The Italian restaurant was the first place we ate and the portion sizes were small and the entrees were a bit bizarre. We enjoyed the coffee shop and good mochas. Concerning alcohol, make sure you are a "priviledged" member. The free alcohol is not worth drinking. Even though we would've enjoyed a few drinks here and there, we mostly didn't drink because they were so awful with the cheap liquor.

Concierge
Watch out. A friendly man offered to help us get a cab to Playa Del Carmen. He told us there was another couple traveling there and offered to have us split a cab to save money. We were very happy. We sat next to the couple we were traveling with and the man happened to speak fluent Spanish. He had overheard the concierge talking about the travelers to Playa del Carmen and figured out he had overcharged both couples by $35 and planned to pocket the extra money. The man went over and demanded the money back and he gave us ours back as well. The cab showed up and we still split the cab, but instead we offered to pay for the way there and they could pay for the way back. We did not trust the staff after this. We also did not keep anything in the safe as we overheard another couple telling us their passports and jewelry had been stolen out of it after housekeeping came in.

Entertainment
Not great, not terrible. Karaoke and dance night, Mayan Dance show, a very bizarre silent comedy show and a few American movies in their theatre room. Prepare to pay extra for motorized water sports and pretty much anything else you'd like to do.

Pools
Would have been nice if they were not freezing. We hated the fact that none of the property had hot tubs. We asked for a room with a jacuzzi and we were willing to pay the extra price of $50 more every night and they said they had no rooms available.

Being recently married we felt in love and happy so that was enough to keep our spirits high, but that was it. The resort continually threatened our good mood with bad service, bad food, bad liquor, a rock-hard bed and mediocre ammenities.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a jacuzzi room.
