Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A family-friendly, all-inclusive resort along an expansive beach
  • 3 pools with ocean views, and a mega-Jacuzzi with 35 seats
  • Rooms come with balconies, flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, coffeemakers, and mini-bars
  • Full-service spa and salon, and modern fitness center
  • 2 tennis courts lit for night play, that double as basketball courts
  • Plenty of fun activities, including snorkeling and scuba lessons
  • A fun kids' club for the little ones
  • Huge event space plus a business center with three workstations

Cons

  • The hotel shows some wear and tear, despite renovations
  • Only 2 full-service restaurants and a few snack bars is limiting for a large all-inclusive property
  • Guests must wear wristbands and are asked for room numbers
  • Daily fee for Wi-Fi (unless part of the loyalty program)
  • Beware of time-share presentations

Bottom Line

This 343-room all-inclusive hotel is situated in a pyramid-style building along the Nichupte Lagoon's expansive beach -- just a 15-minute drive from Cancun Airport. Although the hotel has undergone renovations, certain aspects are not up to par for the level of quality guests might expect. Rooms offer nothing special as far as decor (just your basic Mexican design with tile flooring), but redeeming amenities include balconies, purified tap water, minibars, coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks. As for dining, the all-inclusive property has too few restaurants and bars for the size -- though DaVinci's is a hit. Overall, it's a comfortable family-friendly option, and grounds include tropical gardens surrounding three pools, and the mega-Jacuzzi with seating for up to 35 guests. In addition, there are tennis/basketball courts, meeting rooms, a fitness center, and spa, but watch out for the pushy time-share presenters in the lobby.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A large hotel on the Nichupte Lagoon, close to the airport and downtown Cancun

The Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas is nestled between the Mexican Caribbean and secluded Nichupte Lagoon on Cancun Island. This is not the "Hotel Zone," as some may expect, and if seeking a young party scene, it's better to look elsewhere. The hotel faces a white-sand beach with turquoise waters on the eastern side, and a tranquil lagoon on the western side. Boating excursions depart from the area, but guests will need a rental car or taxi to get to central Cancun and other sites. For local culture, head to the downtown area (known as Ciudad Cancun), which is a short drive away.

  • 15-minute drive to Cancun International Airport
  • 26-minute drive to downtown Cancun
  • 32-minute drive to Puerto Morelos, with quiet beaches and great snorkeling spots
  • 50-minute drive to Playa del Carmen, a laid-back and bustling town with great shopping and a well-heeled crowd
  • 90-minute drive to Tulum ruins
  • 3-hour drive to Chichen Itza ruins
