Winter getaway from Canada

We found everything about this resort top notch. From the cancun airport it is only 15 minutes by shuttle. The check-in process was very smooth with no surprises. The junior suite room was exactly as shown in the pics, and the mattress, sheets and pillows were high quality. The staff during the entire week were extremely helpful and pleasant. The restaurants were casual and the food was excellent with no reservations required and zero to little wait for a table. It was so nice to have a Starbucks on site which converted to a sushi bar in the evening. There was always lounge chairs available at the pool or beach. A special shout out to Alexandro who looked after us while at the pool. We plan on making this boutique resort an annual getaway and have recommended it to friends and family.

Great Hotel and Staff

swindon

We were transferred to the Oleo following the closure of our original hotel due to lack of guests amid the start of the Coronavirus outbreak. We were travelling with another couple. The hotel is clean and situated on a lovely beach. Unfortunately th Oleo was also on a wind down before closing and so only limited restaurant facilities were available, however the Almar restaurant was open a couple of times in the 6 days we were there in the evening and the food was delicious. The beach is lovely, and the waiter, Victor, was fantastic. A real character who made sure that your glass was never empty for very long. Top guy. The hotel was very quiet during our stay, however I would guess it would be noisy and difficult to find a sunbed near the pool if it was fully occupied.
