My husband and I just returned from a 4 day stay at the Onmi. What an absolute joy it was! First we booked the trip through my husband's employer. The package came with a 'lagoon view' room. But with a little persistance at check in, they switched us to an 'ocean view' room, no charge. I'll just go through a few of the important details:
The room: Ocean View, plain jane room, 2 full beds, 19" TV, no biggie, served it's purpose...we weren't in it much. A great view though! The marble floors do magnify the noise a bit, but it really wasn't a big deal.
All inclusive vs. Not All inclusive: Should be based on what you want. We did all inclusive b/c we like the convenience and thought we got a better deal with all the food and drinks we had. But we did eat out one night.
Food: Overall, pretty good. Pina Colada restaurant on the beach was excellent! Excellent chicken fajitas. The upscale restaurant, Da Vinci, also excellent. make your res. with the concierge as soon as you get there. La Palermo, which is the main restaurant was OK. Everything was buffets. They did have menu service but basically same stuff as in the buffet. If you go out and don't want to venture too far, La Distilleria was fabulous! It's a few bus stops down from the Omni, across from the mall.
Beach: Beautiful! I've never seen water this beautiful, that mesmerizing turquoise blue!! It's 100x better than the pictures!
Service: It's what makes this place so great! EVERYONE was awesome, nice, friendly, and helpful! And definately bring plenty on1's and 5's to tip, you won't believe what a difference it makes! we spent our time on the beach. The guys working the beach are definatley the hardest working peope there! We had Frederico and David and they were great! We tipped a dollar for each round of drinks and the next day when they saw us coming, they ran and got chairs set up for us, know exactly what we wanted to drink, and made sure we always had everything we needed. Also, tip your maids. They do a great job getting the rooms cleaned! Remember, a little goes a long way.
Just be prepared, there isn't much night life. They have the lobby bar open with some music but that's about it. The hotel has buses that go downtown everynight to different nightclubs.
We will definately go back and would recommend this hotel!
