Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Oasis Cancun
My husband and I stayed at the Grand Oasis Cancun for our honeymoon. We thought the hotel and beach were really nice but the food was not spectacular. The service was ok although checking in took a very long time. The room was nice and clean and had a great view. We enjoyed our stay but we do not recommend this to someone who is looking for a quiet vacation.
Hotel? Should have stayed at a motel 6
Took a vacation after school ended, booked the room through travel agency and everything went down hill. The staff were very rude, and always gave us funny looks. Had all inclusive and bartenders drilled us if they were real armbands. I will never stay at that hotel again. Limited restaurants and bars to get food and beverages at. Very deceiving place.
Awesome party spot
This hotel was awesome, the people were friendly especially David, Ricardo and Roberto (he's a hottie) the drinks were awesome and the night life in Mexico is the best I have ever experienced. The resort seemed to be aimed towards the younger crowd which was great, I had an awesome vacation and I would definately go back again. firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Senior Spring Break!
About 20 of my good friends went down to the Oasis for our senior spring break in early April... We thought the Oasis was suppossed to be one of the nicest hotels there was. Well we thought wrong. The staff was rude, all they did was try to rip you off and the rooms were horrible.. It took about 20 minutes for anyone to get a beer they pretended like they didn't speak english... It was ridiculous next time im hauling myself to the ROYAL SANDS HOTEL!
Looks Are Decieving
This resort had by far the worst service and accomodations I have ever experienced. The staff was extremely rude, the food is terrible, and the drinks were terrible. I had the all-inclusive option and what a dissappointment that was. If you order a Corona they serve it warm out of a 40 OZ. bottle into a small plastic cup. If you order a daquiri they put a very small splash of rum into it. We found that they only way to get a good drink is to tip like crazy, so you might as well not have the all-inclusive.
Some people in my group went to the liquor store across the street and bought thier own liquor to make drinks in the room! There was a club in the hotel, I walked in there to check it out one night, not a single person was in there. If you are a native, they staff treats you like royalty. On a positive note the pool is great and the grounds are beautiful. Do not let them try to tell you to stay in the main tower, its not a good deal, its far from the beach. Stay in the buildings that are on the beach and demand an ocean front room.
My sister and I were in Cancun on January 13th, 2002, for a week. We arrived around noon at the Grand Oasis...our rooms were not ready so we took a tour of the hotel grounds...very big and impressive. The meals were good...the italian restaurant was the best and the beach grill. The rooms were beautiful, we were lucky to get a top floor room with an oceanview. We didn't find the staff friendly or helpful. They were not in the least bit nice or pleasant, its seem like you were a bother to them...and this is right from the front desk to the waiters and bartenders. We also expected the staff to be younger and more friendly, because the other hotels along the Boulevard had much nicer staff. The only good looking friendly and helpful person was the animation person named Roberto. He went out of his way to please all the guest at the GRAND OASIS,OASIS HOTEL. They should hire more staff like him. We are coming back to Cancun on March 31st for one week and will be staying at the El Pueblito Hotel. Don't know what to expect, but from reading the reviews it looks like a good choice. Will let you know how it was when we back. Looking forward to 'CANCUN"
Grand Oasis Wonderful!
This was a wonderful hotel. It was built in 1998 (I believe) so if you are looking for a brand new property you may want to look elsewhere. The hotel is in very good shape (it was recently remodeled) and has a certain amount of charm and character that some of the other newer properties lack.
This hotel is great! The location on the beach is excellent, the food is great and the drinks even better. Hotel room is average looking but very clean. We went in December 2000 and are going back in February 2002.
This place is a dump.
my girlfriend & I just got back from this place, what a dive. From dirty run down rooms, to rude staff. I am so glad to be back home & out of there! The resort was overrun with drunken kids, the staff really don,t care about the guests & all they want to do is rip you off for US dollars.
Do not stay here unless you are between 18-25 yrs. old, you will regret it. It is a bad joke!
All inclusive no
we stayed at this hotel in October, the rooms are terrible, the food wasn't great although we were all inclusive we ate out quite a few times. The bar tenders were great especially ARMANDO he was just great. I wouldn't stay there again but I may try the grand oasis. There are a ot of nicer hotels along the hotel zone.

Up at 7:30 this morning, we got dressed then made our way to the Altitude lounge for the included continental breakfast. There wasn't a lot for Dylan to eat, but there were meats and cheeses and fruit which was better than nothing. I had some cereal and vegemite toast and a banana. Back to our room and the sun was out so we soaked up a few rays on the verandah. Dylan wasn't feeling too well as we think the soft tacos he had yesterday were made ...
... I relished changing into some fresh clothes and headed out to the downtown area for dinner. I enjoyed walking around the streets which seemed to come alive at night with Mexican music, food stalls and markets. I went on the recommendation of Tripadvisor to PicNic which is a family run Mexican food restaurant. I had some delicious tacos and salsa followed by a beef and chicken fajita seasoned with lime and fresh herbs – delicious! I also order a ...
Last day. I got up earlier then I have all week, 10am. But that was still too late for breakfast. So I went to the snack bar and got some food there. The day was warm and inviting. So I knew it was a beach day. Wind be damned! I pack my bag and head to the bus. It must have been shift change over in the hotel district cause all the buses were full and not stopping as I waved at them. But finally one does, and it's packed too, people were standing all the way to the bus driver. ...
... drive was great and we saw heaps and luckily the rain stopped when we reached the end for the next and final adventure in Xplor... The zip lines! They have 14 different lines a 2.4mile long airborne adventure landing in the water inside one of the caves at the end. It was so much fun climbing higher and higher and the views of the trees, sinkholes and caves were really great. It was a little scary but once you did a couple the fear went away. We were able to ride a ...
... of cosmology. However it was only the super-intellectuals who held this knowledge. Once they worked out the date of an eclipse, say, they would announce it to the city, and the mere commoners could only assume that their knowledge was acquired by otherworldly means (i.e. they were thought of as Gods)
Fun Fact #25 - the Mayans therefore ruled by intellect, rather than brute force. That said, around the time of 900AD Chitchen Itza made an alliance ...
