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. email@example.com
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.

... the 1pm ferry and 30 minutes later we arrived in Isla Mujeres. Sergio had said he just wanted to chill out on the beach, but Vitoria and I had decided to go snorkeling.
We spoke to some of the providers of tours right there at the ferry dock, and found a tour that sounded interesting. The price was supposed to be 450 pesos (25€) for a 4 hour tour with two snorkeling trips, panoramic boat ride and food at the end. With the argument that two people are a fair ...
... us. We took the kayak out one day and had a look around but the fish must prefer the shallower water. The service was great waitresses came around the pool area serving drinks so you didn't have to lift a finger.
The shows at night were mostly dance acts or karaoke. I decided not to share my Elvis act with everyone. On our second last night we went to Coco Bongo. It was one of the famous ...
Arrived in Cancun in the afternoon after an early morning flight (where we enjoyed Virgin America's funky safety video). It is a cool 29 degrees here - out came the jandals, ice cold coronas and delicious Mexican food - now the holiday has really started! Day 2 in Cancun has been awesome! Love love love the beach here! Spent the morning and most of the arvo lying at the beach enjoying the heat and sunshine and swimming in sea water that feels like a warm bath - pure ...
... it so I thought it was cool to pick them up, not noticing the sign saying don't touch the sea turtles, I was patting their heads, touching their shells and picking them up for photos without even realizing. Next we went inside to where there is a pool with hundreds of new born sea turtles swimming around, this time I noticed the sign that said don't touch but I couldn't help myself and quickly picked up a few when no one was looking. There was a few tanks in the room ...
... for the airport and I was able to get into the business class lounge as a guest of my work mate who has a gazillion frequent flyer points. Fast track to 2am and we were "deplaning" from the Delta aircraft after having sat idle on the tarmac for 3 hrs waiting to take off. It started with a fuel pump/electrical fault that was fixed but the crew had then timed out their max flying hours and we couldn't depart. Annoying to say the least, but when something is beyond my control I do ...
