My girlfriend and I stayed in room 307 from June 2 to June 8. All the time we were there the hotel was at about 30% occupancy, so we didn’t have to mess with crowds of tourists. The hotel as a whole is very nice. It’s not a luxury resort, but it’s easily the nicest place I have ever stayed at in my seven years of traveling to the Mayan Riviera. Our room faced the beach, and we had a whirlpool and a hammock on the balcony. It was perfect!
The positives… top of the positive list is the hotel is NOT all inclusive. The place has been meticulously well maintained, and our room was cleaned daily. The service was great, so I was sure to tip well. The employees were very nice, helpful, and honest (I accidentally left the safe open one day and nothing was missing when I returned to the room). The pool was expansive and very clean. Now the beach wasn’t as large as the one in Playa Del Carmen, but it was clean and picturesque, and we didn’t have any trouble finding a couple of lounge chairs under a palapa. We spent 5 days lounging and reading on the beach!
The negatives… The pool closed at 6pm (Omni should consider keeping the pool open until 8). Also, I didn’t like all the small children in the large pool. They should have stayed in the smaller kiddy pool.
This was my first trip to Puerto Aventuras (PA). The area is a master planned residential/ tourist/ commerce zone (similar to Playacar). You have to enter and exit through a security gate, there are restrictions on taxi drivers, etc. At its essence, PA is an upscale fishing community. The harbor winds through rows of hotels and condos and single family homes, and visitors are free to walk the docks and marvel at the impressive array of yachts and catamarans. Forming a large ring in the center of PA are several tanks of live dolphins. Visitors are free to sit or stand alongside the tanks and observe the dolphins. I felt fascinated by the dolphins, but I also felt saddened by the fact that the poor creatures were not allowed to live freely in the ocean. We met plenty of American ex-pats that now live in PA and own some of the restaurants where we ate. I recommend that you rent a bike and ride around the whole of PA.
