We just got back from a week at Omni, and can't imagine why people are writing bad reviews.
check in - was fine. we got in at 10:00pm and had no problems. I did write and call before we arrived to check on the type of room. I also asked for a high floor as suggested by other reviewers. we got room 1901. was perfect.
Rooms - were fine. beds were comfortable (or at least ours was). Nice TV, closet and safe. did have a minibar - but we never used it except for the water. View was perfect. very quiet at night. shower water pressure was the best i have used in a hotel for a while.
bars - were excellent. We didn't seems to find the drinks weak. In fact, they were pretty strong! the lobby bar is run by MARTIN. he was amamzing. Very friendly and made up some nice and colorful drinks. He always had a smile and suggestions. It did close at 1am. but we were tired by then. Met lots of nice people. the lounge singers were very corny and tiredsome. Mexican music would have been better. not interested in the barry manilow songs! the pool bar was nice and had afternoon trivia. all other bars were great. we sat on the beach everyday and the wait satff came aound often. we only tipped MARTIN once.
Pool and beach - we got to the beach early the first morning (7:00) and no one was there. I would say by 7:45-8:00 all the seats were taken. We put stuff on our chairs and then had breakfast and came back. the pool seats were plentiful. I had heard they all might be gone, but maybe it wasn't too crowded when we were there. some people did save seats and then didn't show up for a while. Shaded areas did exsist, but not too much. the pools were fun. not much for heavy laps, but fun areas to play and hang out.
food - we found the food good. Paloma had a great variety each morning. We found the wait staff overly friendly and always asking if we needed anything. Never saw anyone tip. We didn't tip. For lunch Paloma was good again! Pina colada had great fajitas. the sushi bar we found fresh and satisfying. we ate at Davinci two nights. best food I have had in years! delicious! we did tip the waiter at the end - he wasn't expecting it and was very thankful.
Activities were poor - didn't have the yoga or Zumba they advertsed during the day. did do the trivia. we were a couple, so hanging on the beach was what we did. at night, we missed all the shows, as that was our dinner time. then we just hung in the lobby bar. was fine for us.
Overall, it was a great vacation! I had paid $239 for a king ocean view from sniqueaway.com. great price.
We are not too picky. everything was up to our expectations.
