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.

... lack of pressure to leave the room.
My day consisted of crossing about 20 roads to make the 500m journey to the supermarket, going to the hotel gym, showering all the ti e because there's hot water and I can and just generally lying around. I found a hairdressers down the road and got a long over due haircut with a really nice stylist. He wanted to improve his English and I wanted to learn Spanish we ...
... FUN!! After that Mum and Dad went up to the pool and the bar on the roof, while Larni and I met a new friend.. Matt. He's 16 and lives in Atlanta. He left at 6:00 pm, while Larni and I went down the waterslide so many times, for about 30 minutes. We headed back to the room to have showers, and now we are getting ready for tea. That's all for today.... S T A Y T U N E D ! ! Lyss ...
... live was my accidental trip into town. We went from beautiful manicured gardens and well kept lawns to dirt and derelict buildings all in the blink of an eye. A beggar stands at the bus stop and begs for money for the length of time the bus sits there. He just kept asking, or more, yelling. The town was a grubby mess, it's like, once you live in a poor area you don't have to care about your neighbourhood or the environment. There was rubbish everywhere, even in the park where ...
... dock we caught a taxi to the airport. Our flight was on time, and we were Denver bound before we knew it. Lifting off over the jungle, we caught one last glimpse of the lush vegetation pf the Yucatan. Our plane rose up high above the aqua marine water of the Caribbean before disappearing in the clouds, leaving a wake of memories behind us. ...

Having not really gotten settled until about 6pm and feeling pretty tired after the flight I decided not to do too much. I had a beer at the hostel bar, and a couple of other guests informed me that England had beaten Poland 2-0. I took a wander up and down the street where the hostel is situated just to familiarise myself with it since IŽll be ...
