The good news:
My husband and I have stayed at more than 10 all inclusive resorts. The Oasis Cancun had the best grounds so far. Great walkways, very organized, wonderful pool, natural trees on the beach, lots of seating and sprawling areas.
The okay news:
If you are in your 20s or even 30s and looking to lounge by the largest pool in Latin America, the beach, and PARTY PARTY PARTY then this is the place for you! Gorgeous young people having a blast! That time in my life has passed so this was a bit too much action for me. After a couple of days I found out the south end of the resort was geared a bit more for grownups like us heh heh
The staff were super nice, chatty, and very personable. They shared stories with us and seemed to go out of their way to make sure we were having a good time. If I wanted more coffee or an iron brought to my room it was there in a few minutes. The buffet on the south side was better than the north side. The restaurants were great.
The bad news:
I always take a room spray with me for aromatherapy but no matter what I tried I could not remove the mildew smell from our room.
The balconies are very tiny and took some coordination for 2 of us to share.
Only 2 small bottles of water a day. We had to go buy a case at an additional fee.
They have the oddest towel rules we have ever encountered. You cannot check out towels under your wristband or room number. You have to BRING the towels from your room and exchange them for new ones. I guess if they are used to dealing with children this is what they came up with.
We were lucky in that our room was far away from the nightlife or pool area. The music is LOUD and goes all day. I could hear the pool music from my room on the top floor. I am happy we were not right by the pool.
Ahhh, wristbands...how I hate the different colors. I spend a lot of money to come to an all inclusive. When we arrived we were told that were different kinds of wristbands. For $28 more dollars per day we could be upgraded from a purple wristband to a black wristband. We stuck with the purple so we could see what the difference was. The bad part was that there were actual security guards that wouldn't let us into "VIP" areas or certain restaurants without the black wristband. Once again, this is more geared towards a young person's club scene. It also makes it hard to make new friends and then not be able to eat or hang in the same areas as them. I do not support a class system on vacation.
If you are young and looking for a party resort this is the one. I am not so I will be looking elsewhere for my next resort.
