Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas Rating: 4.0 Pearls
This 343-room all-inclusive hotel is situated along the Nichupte Lagoon's expansive beach -- just a 15-minute drive from Cancun Airport. Rooms offer nothing special as far as decor, but redeeming amenities include balconies, purified tap water, minibars, coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks. As for dining, DaVinci's, with pool and ocean views, is a hit. Overall, it's a comfortable business- and 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, a huge event space plus a business center with three workstations, a fitness center, and spa, but there are no work desks in the rooms and a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.
