WOW!

Wow! Just WOW! My wife Jaclyn found this gem of resort for our families first trip to Mexico. We stayed for 9 days and it was amazing! The food is the best we’ve had in the Caribbean area and we have been to the Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, The Bahamas, and Turks and Caicos! But, what truly makes this place great is the staff and service. The restaurant Al Mar serves incredible local and Mediterranean food where our favorite waiter Kevin, is joined by Gersom, and Carlos who gave exceptional service. I highly recommend the Grouper and Mahi Mahi and try the creme brûlée for dessert! This place sits right next to the beach, elevated just enough to make you feel like you’re on the water. The buffet Azul is managed by Paola and her staff is incredible! Illiana gave me Spanish lessons everyday and would walk to the other side of the resort to get my wife her much needed espresso! My daughter Isabella is a salmon fanatic and she ate the smoked salmon everyday at breakfast while Jackie and I dined on fluffy omelettes prepared by Jesus the amazing short order cook. The snack bar in the pool area staffed by the friendly William, Victor, and Gaby has burgers, dogs, great chips and guacamole, sits right next to the beach allowing a great breeze and view. The pool/swim up bar is staffed by the friendly Jonathan and one of my favorite staff members was moved there recently from the lobby bar, Vinnie! When Jackie and I go to all-inclusive resorts, it sickens us when we see guests that don’t tip at all and this trip was no different. After seeing Vinnie get stiffed several times my wife and I tipped him for ourselves and the other patrons. My drinks magically went from 8oz glasses to Viking mugs of cerveza which did not stop flowing! Try a barracuda from this area! The lobby bar staffed by my other favorites Reyes and Yolanda is where we spent the bulk of the nights here and it did not disappoint. Great music mix from Mexican, American, and other Latin countries. Reyes kept my Viking mug filled (until my wife told him to stop) and they gave us advice on where to go and what to do while in Cancun! Yolanda also made sure my wife had her espresso at the bar when we came. 😊 Our room was very clean and comfortable with an AC that saved us from the hot temperatures and a balcony providing a great view of the beach and the pool area. The room was never musty or damp and the staff made sure to ask us if we needed anything during our stay. Thank you all staff members who made our trip so enjoyable! And, to any potential guests who choose to stay at this all-inclusive resort, please tip the staff for good service. They work extremely hard to make your stay amazing. Being married to a former bartender and waitress I know how appreciative they are of a few extra bucks. 😊🇺🇸🇲🇽👍

Most wonderful 10 days!

London, United Kingdom

Came to Óleo with a friend as an early birthday break and had an amazing time! The staff were lovely, helpful and always smiling. Yeseli in the buffet was super helpful and always went that extra mile to help with a smile! Bar staff were great, Reyes and Vince kept your glass full! Spa was wonderful, massage was great!! Loved the food, whether it was the Japanese, Mediterranean, room service or beach bar it was all lovely. Last but by no means least, Israel made our beach Inspira experience memorable! All in all a great place to visit, will definitely be back with the family next time! Thank you!
