Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located on a white-sand beach with calm waters
  • All rooms have private balconies or terraces with partial ocean views
  • Spa deluxe rooms offer free access to spa facilities and Jacuzzi tubs
  • Nice pool with a swim-up bar and tennis courts with ocean views
  • Big on-site spa with range of treatments to choose between
  • Free Wi-Fi in the lobby

Cons

  • Only a buffet is available for breakfast and lunch
  • Some complaints about food quality
  • Pesky time-share pushers
  • Room decor is sparse and bland (and bathrooms are small)
  • No Internet available in the rooms

Bottom Line

The 154-room Ocean Spa Hotel is an all-inclusive option in the Hotel Zone. The hotel sits on a white-sand beach in a bay-like area by the marina, providing calm water that's not as crystal clear as in other areas of Cancun. The hotel features a nice pool with a swim-up bar, a fitness center, and an updated, clean spa, but the food is mediocre and though rooms are large, they're super bland (the only color in the room comes from the coral duvet cover). Spa Deluxe rooms are nicer, with fresher decor and more modern bathrooms. All rooms feature partial ocean views from private balconies or terraces. Some may consider the nearby (similarly priced) Bel Air Collection Resort & Spa instead, which features generally nicer rooms, better restaurants, and a higher quality beach.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the beach in the Hotel Zone, a short drive from Downtown Cancun

The Ocean Spa Hotel is in the northernmost, westernmost part of the Hotel Zone in Cancun, a short drive from Downtown Cancun. The Zona Hotelera (or Hotel Zone) is the megaresort, mega-mall area in Isla Cancun that caters to mass tourism. Nightlife is one of its main draws, as are brand-name shops and restaurants -- but there's little of Cancun's original flavor here. To get a hint of what that is, take a cab to Ciudad Cancun, the real downtown, where smaller, better restaurants, local shops, and quieter bars are located.

  • 23-minute drive to Cancun International Airport
  • 10-minute drive to downtown Cancun (Ciudad Cancun)
  • 40-minute drive to Puerto Morelos, with quiet beaches and great snorkeling spots
  • 57-hour drive to Playa del Carmen, a laid-back and bustling town with great shopping, and a well-heeled crowd
  • 1-hour and 37-minute drive to Tulum Mayan ruins
