Travel with us
The art of being wed to each other and married to exploring.

Welcome to paradise
Every time we visit Playa del Carmen, we fall in a love a little bit more. This gorgeous spot about a half hour south of Cancun, has been a hot spot destination to many travelers over the years. This part of Mexico is fantastic if you are looking for a romantic experience with your partner. On this trip we decided to stay somewhere new and that somewhere was H10's Ocean Riviera Paradise!
From the moment we stepped into the lobby, we were hooked! We knew that this place was going to add to our couples getaway in the best way! Keep reading to view this luxury resort!
The grounds of this slice of heaven were immaculate and well kept! The staff here worked hard to ensure that each guest was impressed with their surroundings. The property is covered in lush gardens, tall palms and local vegetation.
The property is situated on the northern side of Playa del Carmen and is directly on the beach. Throughout the property you will find various areas to relax and enjoy the scenery. The outdoors are not the only noteworthy part of this five star resort! The Mediterranean inspired designs and styles are something to feast your eyes on! This is evident in all the spaces you are able to enjoy on this magnificent property.
We have experienced many all inclusive retreats, but this one moves towards the top of our travels. At Ocean Riviera Paradise, vacationers are able to choose from 10 different restaurants and 11 different bars on site. Even with staying a whole week, we were not able to experience every single place! *WTW travel tip: plan which restaurants you want to experience early in your stay and ensure reservations for the ones that are a must do.
Our top recommendations for our fellow travelers is Sakura (teppanyaki), Mike's coffee, Steak House, the lobby bar and Amaranto. The daily buffet is also a great source for all meals, as they have fresh food and plenty of it! The neat thing about Mike's coffee is the vintage espresso maker they have. Enjoy a fantastic cup of coffee and light bite when you make a pit stop here.
Each evening there is usually an event that will host a signature drink to enjoy. We fell in love with the scenery while enjoying custom margarita recipes and martini's on another evening.
The activities here are endless! The property features a bowling alley, theater shows, night club, 11 bars, shopping center, casino and beach fun! Steven and I were able to experience most of these things while visiting on this trip.
Be sure to try the non motorized sports (sea kayaking and stand up paddleboarding)! This is an excellent way to experience the mesmerizing Caribbean Sea. Steven and I were able to do one of our favorite activities; sea kayaking!
Another fantastic way to enjoy your afternoon is with a massage on the beach. The masseuse's at the Ocean Riviera Paradise do not fall short of creating a relaxing and romantic memory for you and your partner.
We will be back
At the end of day, after experiencing sunrises and sunsets together, Steven and I were able to enjoy every bit of what Ocean Riviera Paradise had to offer. From fantastic food, to memorable couples massages, we were able to rejuvenate and adventure together! Ocean Riviera Paradise is perfect for couples travel and we hope that you have been inspired to book your next trip.
