Our View of Sea Garden / Ocean Breeze HotelsSea Garden Hotels (Resorts) is one of the early brands offered by Grupo Mayan Resorts. According to WikiBin, Grupo Mayan Resorts began operations in 1975 with its first property called Pariso Mazatlan. A second property followed in 1979, which was called Pariso del Mar, also located in Mazatlan. In 1984, the then fledgling Grupo Mayan Resorts inaugurated its third property in Mazatlan, which the company called Costa Brava Hotel (Brave Coast Hotel). This hotel is located only a short walk from the Paraiso del Mar. Later, Costa Brava Hotel changed its name to Vidafel Mazatlan, which later was changed again to Sea Garden.
Sea Garden Resorts, now termed Sea Garden Hotels and Ocean Breeze Hotels, are located on four properties. Sea Garden Resort is the smallest of the Grupo Vidanta brands and caters to families who are looking for beautiful, beach side accommodations that offer economical vacations. Additionally, through the Ocean Breeze Hotel, members of other resorts may book stays of less than 7 days to travel during off peak times, which could result in reduced airfares.
In October, 2008 we learned through a fellow member that 1) Vedanta Capital Group owns the Grupo Mayan brands and 2) the Sea Garden is included in the brands owned by Vedanta Capital Group.
This was news to us especially since we purchased our Grand Luxxe units in December, 2007, had a meal at the Nuevo Vallarta Sea Garden and heard nothing of these events.
The Sea Garden Hotel / Ocean Breeze Hotel is an intimate facility that offers economy minded families a place to enjoy a beautiful beach and comfortable surroundings. It is also a place for members of the other resorts to lengthen their stay by a few days to take advantage of off peak airfare pricing.
You can get an impression of what each of the four locations is like by taking a virtual tour by viewing videos produced by RCI, which is one of the timeshare industry's largest exchange companies. The three Sea Garden videos were professionally produced by RCI.COM/RCITV and the Ocean Breeze video was professionally produced by the Ocean Breeze Hotel. All are quite informative. Enjoy!

Since the Sea Garden was originally an entry point brand offered by Grupo Vidanta and Mayan Resorts, many owners started with the Sea Garden and traded up as they felt the need to do so.
Based upon photos we have received from fellow members, Sea Garden units provide hotel like accommodations on beautiful properties.
Note: All Sea Garden - Ocean Breeze Hotel rooms are configured in the same way at each Sea Garden - Ocean Breeze Hotel location. Only the structure of the resort complex might be different.
