Nice Hotel next to the Beach

Posted Feb 22, 2014
Pros: The staff are wonderful and ensure you are being taken care of.
Cons: The rooms are dated and need an upgrade. There is really no gym facility at the moment but apparently they are working on improving with a new area.
Location: There are restaurants and shops that you can walk to. The bus stop is right in front of the hotel which stops frequently if you want to go down town.
We had a wonderful time in Mazatlán! There are a lot of snowbirds that go to the Sea Garden for the winter so there were not a lot of children. Although mine didn't mind having the pool to themselves. The staff organizing games were always sure to try to include them in any activities that were going on.

Almost impossible to find

Posted Feb 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
This 'hotel' is part of the Mayan Sea Garden complex.. If we weren't extremely familiar with Mazatlan, I don't think that we would ever have found it, as 'Ocean Breeze' appears to be the name of a time-share type of thing, and is not the name of the hotel. European style duvets and bedding were advertised, but they were not used. Just the same old sheets and blankets. etc. People were friendly and the hotel, although older, has been maintained. It was nice, but I wouldn't stay there again.

Good place to stay if you have kids. The master suite had two private bedrooms

Ocean View---NOT

Posted Feb 29, 2012
Pros: Beautiful grounds. Good pool and ocean-side options.
Cons: Reception staff.
Location: North of the so-called Golden Zone. Bus or taxi required to leave resort life.
We booked an ocean view room and were given a parking lot view. Staff told us it was our problem, to resolve with Expedia. The next day we succeeded in getting our ocean view; it took time. This was our third time at Ocean Breeze, but also our last. Maid service was not as good as in the past: Kleenex flowers and towel birds, but the floor not as clean as it should have been. The grounds are great, the pools clean, and the poolside noise and activity not objectionable. This is a timeshare on its downhill run; there are a lot of these in Mazatlan. There are better places to stay for the same or less money.

An alright experience.

Posted Feb 14, 2012
Pros: Daily/nightly activities such as blackjack, bingo, volleyball, activites for children
Cons: You have to pay for wifi
Location: Very far from everything. Buses are the way to go. Taxis are super expensive
They gave us a very nice free upgrade for being honeymooners. The service of the staff was just ok, many of them weren't over the top friendly or even know any english at all. This hotel caters to snow birds and canadians. Don't do the timeshare they suck you into when you get checked in, most horrible time share experience by far. Over the top pushy and down right rude. We knew what the time share was about and have done many before, but never had such a bad experience like the one we had at ocean breeze. The gifts we got for attneding the time share was 10% off our hotel purchases, free taxi ride to the airport when we left, and they offered us a city tour which we do not recommend. The city tour consisted of going to the sponsors and being obligated to purchase from them. There's not much around the hotel, it's about 20 min away from the "golden zone" where all the tourists go. Overall we had a great week there but were expecting more fun.

You get what you pay for....

Posted Dec 27, 2011
Pros: The staff was very courteous and nice, the hotel was right on the beach so we enjoyed daily walks on the beach
Cons: The condition of the room.
Location: Location was far from everywhere but there is a lot of transportation available everywhere.
It was ok based on what we paid for. Staff was very nice. The condition of the hotel was not nice at all, the shower and toilet clogged almost every day. Yes, we got a good rate but I would not stay there again.

Photos are not what you get

Posted Nov 21, 2011
The photos and type of the room on Expedia are not what you get. those are for owners only. Expedia customers get 38 year old rooms.

Helpful and Friendly Staff

Posted Jun 27, 2011
The events that travel agencies over through the hotel are great -- they include transportation to and from the hotel and usually drinks and a meal too! I especially recommend trying "Salsa and Salsa" if you want to experience a little culture while learning the dance and how to make 7 Mexican salsas (along with some Margarita recipes). Sailing trip is not recommended if you have sailing experience and are looking to get out on the open sea, however it makes for a family friendly, fun day at an island beach with kayaks snorkeling.
