Quality That Rocks And No Sticker Shock

Ocean offers an elegant & affordable alternative

Value-conscious? Thrifty? Frugal? Call us Canadians what you want, but when we feel the value, the companies we’re buying from feel the love.

For Anna Jimenez-Oliveras, who works in sales and contracting for Ocean by H10 Hotels, that’s just fine, because it fits in perfectly with the Ocean offering.

“One of the things that makes us unique is the price/value equation. It’s seamless – we offer a lot for what the client is paying.”

In the burgeoning and diversifying all-inclusive market, there’s a broad range of pricing, based partly on demand and time of year, but mostly on the amenities provided. Your clients want top-shelf liquors? They’ll pay more. A wide selection of a la carte restaurants? Same thing.

The Ocean by H10 Hotels experience skews to the higher end of the AI spectrum.

Every property offers 24-hour complimentary room service and reservation-free a la carte dining. There’s free WiFi throughout the resorts in Mexico and the D.R. (not in Cuba yet but someday soon when infrastructure permits), a stocked mini-bar in the rooms and gourmet coffee, teas and pastries all day long at Mike’s Coffee. Each property also features a signature adults-only romantic restaurant called Blue Moon.

For those seeking a higher level of luxury, Ocean offers its Privilege rooms and services, a boutique hotel-within-the-hotel concept featuring spacious premium rooms with large private terraces in preferential locations, exclusive check-in, butler service, a private beach area with waiter service, private lounge and restaurant and more.

“Booking your clients into our Privilege rooms sets them up for a great vacation,” says Oliveras. It’s a more upscale experience right from the beginning. Things like enhanced toiletries and Nespresso machines are the kinds of little indulgences that make a big difference.”

Various Ocean resorts offer distinct amenities at no extra charge. Ocean Blue & Sand in PUJ and Ocean Riviera Paradise in CUN both feature bowling alleys – at no extra charge. The elaborate splash area for kids that is part of the Daisy Club children’s facility at Riviera Paradise is something other resorts charge extra for, Oliveras says.

“We really are an all-inclusive. And we’re very friendly to families on a budget. Our Mexico and D.R. properties will welcome a family of five in a junior suite rather than forcing them to pay more for a family suite. That’s something agents and their clients really appreciate.”

Weddings are another important segment where Oliveras wants agents to consider Oceans by H10 Hotels.

“We perform a lot of them with our ‘Perfect Day’ weddings and celebrations program and get really good feedback. We have wedding coordinators at every hotel and we are hyper-focused on making it right – we listen very closely to our brides and make it easy for the agents who book them.”

Oliveras says agents with value-conscious clients who haven’t checked out the Ocean by H10 Hotels lineup should take a closer look.

“We give agents the peace of mind that their clients are spending their holidays in a very solid and reliable product, whether in the D.R., Mexico or Cuba. We look forward to welcoming more and more Canadians each year.”
