Ocean Coral & Turquesa Review

Great value…remember that phrase from one of our mailers last month? Can’t get much greater of a value than Ocean Coral Turquesa in the Riviera Maya. An all-junior suite property less than 20 minutes from the airport, arranged parallel to the white sand beach giving most rooms (with the exception of ground floor) an oceanview, fully stocked minibars in each room, the ability to fit a family of five in one room, free wifi in the lobby, and much more.

Ocean Coral & Turquesa is arranged in four U shaped buildings, each one with its own pool – the one nearest the main lobbies (they have two check ins, one for suite guests and one for Privilege Club guests, more on that later) has the swim up pool bar, which of course makes it the most “outgoing.” Just up from that is the Kids Club section geared towards families with younger children. On the other end is a quieter pool with relaxing music, and at the farthest U is the Privilege Club section with its added amenities and services.

Ocean Coral & Turquesa’s Privilege Club is a great add-on for not much more – Privilege Club guests have a private check in and check out, access to the Privilege Club lounge with top shelf liquors and concierge service, a lobster dinner once a week in the oceanside restaurant, in-room Internet access included, and a private section of the beach set aside just for them, featuring beach butlers who bring everything from towels and books to ice buckets full of cold drinks.

Plenty of dining options at Ocean Coral & Turquesa, and none require reservations (isn’t this how they should all be?) Dine where you want, when you want – no worries about rushing home from your Chichen Itza excursion that’s running late to make the 7PM Oriental reservation you had. Stay that extra hour in the pool, catch those last rays of sun on the beach, and decide last minute what cuisine you’re in the mood for – Mexican, Tex-Mex, American (in the very cool sports-themed restaurant), Japanese, Seafood, or Italian. Even though reservations are not needed, there may be a wait, so they will provide pagers to let you know when the table is ready, so have a drink and relax. Ocean Coral & Turquesa Privilege Club guests can get guaranteed times to dine, another great perk.

Long stretch of white sand beach at Ocean Coral & Turquesa – it’s not the crystal clear blue water from brochures, but for the most part it’s calm and relaxing, and the sand is white and cool. Lots of space and seating along the beach, and all guests have beach waiter service for drinks – even in a ‘great value’ resort!

Ocean Coral & Turquesa is currently running a Winter Sale with reduced rates for travel through April 30th. For more information, brand new photos, and a price quote, visit our Ocean Coral Turquesa page.
