“Gorgeous calm beach!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

The beach at the Omni is a wonderful change from most Riveria Maya beaches in that the jetties provide calm, clear, warm waters to relax and enjoy the sea with out any current! Perfect for oldies, or people with small children. This beach was among our favorites visited on a recent trip to Quintana Roo!

“Nice little beach... very fun”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Apparently the beach in front of the Omni has gone through some changes. Some erosion has made it quite small and if you're a serious beach-head, this may not work for you. The resort is small so it's okay that the beach is small although anyone can come to this beach... hotel guest or not so it's possible that it can get crowded. There is a breaker made of rocks so the swimming area is shallow and calm. There are loungers here, the restaurant (El Xenote) and the beach bar (Pina Colada) where Miguel, Dany and Clemente will take care of you. There is also some very nice snorkeling just outside the breakers and it's only 5 to 6' deep throughout most of the bay. A great place and the spot where we spent most of our time on our recent trip to PA. Salud!

“Absolutely beautiful!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

The Omni is working hard to restore the beach and it is paying off. Gorgeous, turquoise water and pristine white sand, combined with amazing snorkeling. Has an intimate feel and glorious ocean views!

“Best Fish Tacos in Town!!!!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We love the grilled fish tacos with roasted habanero salsa in oil - wow - what a punch of flavor!!! The staff at the beach bar are always very friendly and kind. They remember us each time we visit.
