Ocean Coral & Turquesa: “We have prepared ourselves to get the best hotel experience”

What to Look For in Your Riviera Maya Hotel Resort

There can be no denying that the Riviera Maya which is just south of Cancun is one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Every year travelers flock to it to get sun, sea, and relaxation. Once you’ve made your mind up and ready to get some sun, what qualities should you look for in your chosen resort?

Let’s find out.

Features Your Riviera Maya Hotel Resort Should Have

There are several features your resort should have. To get an idea, Ocean Coral Turquesa is a good example of what a great resort looks like and you may want to check it out.


Rooms should be a mixture of standard and exclusive rooms. Given the beach location having sea views goes without saying. The rooms should obviously be comfortable, clean, and even the standard rooms should ooze luxury.

Excursions and Activities

Many resorts have an entertainment team so you simply tell these guys what you want to do and they put together your itinerary. Activities can include:

  • Golf
  • Volleyball
  • Tennis
  • Windsurfing
  • Catamaran sailing
  • Kayak
  • Aerobics and gymnasiums
  • Swimming and lounging by the pool
  • Scuba diving and other water sports

Also, as the Riviera Maya is packed full of ancient relics, towns, cities, villages, and lots and lots of places to explore, the resort’s entertainment team should arrange some fantastic day and overnight trips for you.

The value of this cannot be overstated. It takes time to arrange your vacation and using local people or at least people who know what makes for a good vacation, can save you time, hassle, money, and minimize the chances of disappointment.

For Kids

Family holidays are fantastic and have been described by many as pure joy. To that end, you want a resort that puts children front and center. Facilities for kids should be in abundance at the resort. There may well be a ‘kids club’ where your children can make friends with others and have a day of activities. This also lets you have a bit of free time too.

If you’re going on a family break, ensure your resort caters for children.


Many choose to get married at a resort in the Riviera Maya. This is a perfect choice. The better resorts are in great locations that ooze elegance and romance. Some, have their own private beach and what better place to tie the knot than on a white sand beach next to a clear crystal water ocean?

The honeymoon is also built-in, and the hotel has plenty of space for guests to stay for the happy event.


Of course, the Riviera Maya resorts not only cater for those on vacation. Businesses often come here to hold events and meetings. It makes perfect sense to get teams out of the hustle and bustle of busy office environments and come to Mexico. Here, they can relax and network and then enjoy the delights at night of which there are plenty.

If you are going to the Riviera Maya, ensure your resort is a great one. Your experience will be far more rewarding.
