Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas
Travel Blogs from Cancun
First, I will say there was a lot of exitement about this trip. We have been planning an escape for a couple years now but never managed to make it out of the country. Lucky enough we have been able to go different places close to home like Orlando, Daytona Beach and Sarasota.
We did a lot of research on where to go and finally came …
En la mańana de el quinto día, concluí my viaje de Chichen Itzá and viaje a Cancún en un carro. Cancún es una ciudad bonita, y es popular de turistas. Próximo, cené a la Dolce Vita. La es un restaurante famoso para pasta casero. Finalmente, fui al Hotel Omni Cancún para descansar. Es un resort muy grande y lujoso.
My favourite trip of all!
... Great Plaza where there stands a collection of 50 or so awe-inspiring buildings including Temples 1 and 2. The imposing nature of these two structures, in my opinion, trumps Machu Picchu or any other Incan creation. Knowing that the Mayans built these 50+metre tall temples for prayer and sacrifice to the Gods while exploring other realms under the influence of psychedelic mushrooms and other entheogens gives the ancient city a very unsettling feel. We had around thirty minutes to ...
So, we are now safely in Cancun! Arrived Thursday night, just taken me a long time to write in here! The journey went far too smoothly considering it was us.. flight went well, as did the change over, and the transfer from the airport. Our hotel is lush! Marble floors, extreme air con in the room, a shower the size of a bath, view of the ocean literally right outside out window. We couldn't be happier! There was a slip up when we ...

We spent our 2002 Christmas vacation week at the Omni-Cancun and had a really good time. The kids 22, 20, and 18 were in awe of the villa ( it was very nice).
One word----- Awesome!!!!!
We just returned from a 5 night stay and can find nothing to complain about, at all. The staff was wonderful, helpful, cheerful and a pleasure to have around. The entire hotel area was spotless, the entertainment spectacular, and the service outstanding.
I would recommend the "all inclusive" plan, plenty of drinks, food and personal touches. One bit of advice would be to have plenty of US ones, fives and tens, because you will not recieve an exchange from peso's to US on leaving. All change comes as peso's and can be a bother and expense when trying to purchase anything.
Overall the experience was wonderful, the water the most beautiful blue, you will ever see.
Worst Place to Stay
Placed smelled of mildew. Great if you have allergies to mold. Food was not at all good even in the Italian restaurant. Pool very shallow. Service was below par. Place was like a ghost town. I can see why! Not worth the money!
We just returned from a 4 day stay at the Omni and were generally pleased with the hotel.
OMNI was tremendous!!!
Just got back from Cancun and stayed at the OMNI. beautiful place with a nice beach. Staff and service were great. They wait on you hand and foot. nice people too. The food was very yummy. The food at Davinci was great. Also the jacuzzi bar on the beach was the best. relaxing and getting fed drinks is very relaxing. will defintely head back soon.!!!
My wife and I stayed here in November 2000 and it was outstanding. Service was the best we have ever had of the many Mexican and Caribbean all-inclusives we have been to including Sandals Antigua. They have beach butler service that comes around every 10 to 15 minutes and you can order and eat your lunch on the beach at your palapa as well. The food was the best we have had at any all-inclusive and on par with that of Sandals Antigua and probably more consistently good. Giant Shrimp cocktail was excellent as was the coconut shrimp, filet mignon and various Mexican and Italian offerings. The beach restaurant was also very good and an outstanding location and set-up right on the sand. The beach was fantastic, in the top 3 we have been to. The drinks and bar service were top notch with many top shelf brands and numerous bottled beers to choose from. They also provided an endless supply of bottled water with the all-inclusive plan. We had an ocean view double room with a nice balcony. Room was spacious with lots of marble, very clean though a little dated. This resort had most everything on site including a little shopping mall and a decent little gym and spa. Excellent value too at about $1800 CDN each for a week all-inclusive from Vancouver including flights and transfers. We will most definitely return and highly recommend it.
Give me a flippin break! I just got back from La Casa Outhouse (Omni) and I can't believe anyone with any taste would really like this pink toilet with a pool. Please, I have never stayed in a place where A/C dripped water and you get called down to the front desk to pay for your two-week stay after the first week. Then if you should want a beach towel you have to go to the AquaWorld desk behind the pool. Everyday I would hear "Would you like to do any waters sports today?", even if I got the towels at 5pm when the day was over. Everyday I would say no and it was this ground hog day thing happening over and over. I talked to everyone I could to see if the all-inclusive was worth it and everyone said no, but if they had to pay full price for it, they would be angry. I had room service and lunch by the beach both su*ked big time. I found the food no better the fast food found at the McDonald's across the boulevard, so when I wanted to eat on the beach I got delivery from the Subway sandwich shop next to the McDonalds. The hotel serves the kind of food to eat when youre drunk beyond belief. Da Vincis restaurant is a joke; Ive had better Italian food by opening a can of Chef Boyardee. I could not believe that any one likes this place, its old and is in need of major renovations. I cant recommend staying here; I had no choice but to. You figure a place with the Omni name would be a great place to stay. Its not really an Omni though, I talked to some of the staff and they say that the Hotel rents the name from Omni and then Omni will list it as one in their web site. Its a hotel on the way out. Im sure the building will be sold off in a few years time and called something else for the next thirty years. Beach was nice, views were great. If you got one of the rooms on the lagoon side you also faced the open sewage system tank for all the hotels. That musty smell everyone said they smelled in the rooms, well hello! How does
We chose the Omni based on our friends recommendation and were so glad we did!! What a great resort!!! The hotel staff was very accommodating. Beach was stunning. We really enjoyed the whirlpool beach bar. Had breakfast on the beach everyday. We did the all inclusive program and it was worth every penny. Food was very good to excellent. Beach party was a super time! Fitness center was well equipped and nice. Squeaky clean everywhere. We will definitely return!
Great food, great staff, great location, great hotel!
We have been to the Omni two times now and it is truly a wonderful place to stay. We get the all-inclusive package and it is definately worth it. The staff is friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay the best possible. Aurelio at Jacuzzi bar is the best bartender we have ever had and he is as friendly and accomodating as they come. The food is great and there is a pretty good variety for an all-inclusive package. The beach is beautiful and there is alot to do down by the beach (Pina Colada restaurant, Kuku's Jacuzzi Bar). Overall, a great experience and will definitely be returning in the future.
I stayed at the Omni Villas February of 2000 and March of 2002 and i just loved it! It was great. Im 17 years old and im going again for my senior spring break this year.
