Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A modern, all-inclusive beachfront hotel

Sandos Cancun presents itself as an adult-oriented property, though guests have noted there are plenty of children at the hotel. The hotel’s style is elegantly minimalist with a mix of European design touches and old Spanish style. The lobby has marble floors and mosaic-tiled columns along with mod lamps. The atmosphere is sophisticated, with a chic lobby bar and romantic restaurants. There are many appealing places for canoodling couples including a shaded patio with hammocks.

 Location

Directly in the center of Cancun’s Hotel Zone

Sandos Cancun is a 20-minute drive from the airport and is located directly on the beach overlooking the sea. It also overlooks the lagoon that separates the hotel zone from the mainland. For a fee, the hotel can arrange transportation from the airport if booked in advance. There is a convenient bus that connects guests to nearby nightlife.

 Rooms

Simple, elegant, spacious rooms

Decor in the rooms at the Sandos Cancun is understated and classic, with marble floors and pretty beach-chic accents such as white or light wood furniture and wrought iron mirrors. Deluxe Rooms have fresh white bedding while the suites we saw had rich purple bed runners and curtains. Large suites also have walk-in showers and separate tubs. All rooms have 24-hour room service, flat-screen TVs, and bathrobes/slippers as part of the all-inclusive daily price. Not all rooms have balconies or water views -- but these are beautiful. Lower floors receive noise from the air-conditioning units of the resort next door.

 Features

Beautiful pools, white-sand beach, several restaurants and bars

This hotel has three infinity pools, one of which is heated. There is a beautiful stretch of white-sand beach in front of the hotel, but guests have reported a limited number of beach umbrellas (and the usual competition in reserving shade offerings -- in this case thatched cabanas -- with guests arriving before sunrise to claim their spot). The spa has an extensive range of services and there are several quality restaurants on-site. The chic lobby bar is a sophisticated place to grab a drink. This hotel does not offer much in the way of nightlife.
