All-inclusive resort in Puerto Morelos, halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen
The Ocean Coral & Turquesa is situated along the Riviera Maya -- an area south of Cancun that is famous for large all-inclusive resorts, smaller boutique hotels, and fine-dining restaurants. This family-friendly option is near the fishing and diving hub of Puerto Morelos. The town has snorkel and sport fishing boats, while private yachts make their home in the man-made harbor just south of town. Cancun International airport is a half hour drive away, or head to Playa del Carmen in the other direction (this is where the ferry leaves for Cozumel). The resort concierge team can help arrange day trips and adventure excursions around the Yucatan Peninsula.
The Ocean Coral & Turquesa is an expansive 585-room resort in the heart of the Riviera Maya. Contemporary rooms have red accents and whimsical touches along with amenities such as balconies, flat-screen TVs, and minibars. Recreation options include a kids' club, scuba diving, tennis, and many non-motorized water sports. The spacious beach and four outdoor pools offer plenty of space to relax, although lounge chairs can sometimes be difficult to snag. All-inclusive packages include six restaurant choices and a cozy coffee shop. The pool bar is a hit for nightlife, but light sleepers will want to request a room away from the action. For the ultimate experience, privilege status includes premium alcohol, restaurant reservations, and access to a separate beach area.
