Tucked between a yacht-filled marina and a meandering golf course, this 30-room hideaway has hammocks and Jacuzzis in all its breezy rooms. It packs a white beach, snorkel-worthy water and palapa pool bar into the mix, for a blissful Riviera Maya stay without cars or crowds. All of the rooms and suites, whether facing the sea, the marina or the garden, have a good-size balcony or terrace with a Jacuzzi, a white cotton hammock and a two-seat couch. Showers with glass doors that open to the outdoors are great fun, especially under starry skies. Besides the two pools, surrounded by padded blue lounge chairs, the palapa-shaded Piña Colada Jacuzzi Beach Bar caters to adults, while baskets filled with beach toys and an adjoining kiddie pool keep the little ones busy. There are four restaurants, including El Xenote, which serves Yucatan specialties like fish baked in banana leaves.
In the Area
Beyond the creature comforts, the Omni Puerto Aventuras is surrounded by the Yucatan’s natural beauty. Yachts and sailboats sway in the marina beside dolphins and sea turtles and at the beach, the on-site dive shop offers boat rides to nearby coral reefs swarming with sea creatures. Or you can hook a marlin with Puerto Aventura’s Sportfishing’s yachts, which depart from the marina. For golf lovers, the nine-hole Puerto Aventuras Golf Course winds through the property, and you can check out the booty from an 18th-century shipwreck at the Museo CEDAM, a small nautical and underwater museum in the commercial center at Puerto Aventuras.
How to Get There
We love this spot for food. You cannot beat the location and the beach bar is a must.
All of our servers and bartenders were so friendly and welcoming. One of our favorite waiters was "Damian" propt service and great food. The best top shelf margaritas as well.
It’s a small hotel but due to its location it feels like you are in a large resort. It sits right along the beach and has a nice size pool.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Chef Miguel was friendly and his team followed his lead. Room service was very good; staff and servers were accommodating and ready to assist.
The reception desk - shame on me, I forgot the name of the young man who at times works the night shift; he is very prompt, friendly and always ready to assist.
The rooms are nice - mini snack bar was a nice touch. My daughter really enjoyed it.
I definitely recommend it!
We loved the Omni and this was our 3rd visit in less than 1.5 years, but this time will be our last. The room and service is 100% different, I heard they replaced the 20+ year manager and we noticed. No heavenly blankets, old and dirty/rusty lamp shade, no king size bed and we paid full price, no turning down beds at night, no picking up our towels at night, no free hat, and breakfast is not worth the extra $ they charge. Just not the same experience anymore.
We had breakfast at the Omni restaurant 5 times. The food was fantastic (and so was the view!) and Edwin, our server, was so good the first meal... we made sure we got him every time. He told us all about their delicious green drinks that we had every morning and told us how to make them when we got home. He also brought us the habanero onions garnish that I put on everything! Delicious with just a bit of heat. And he told us how we could prepare those at home, as well. Rarely in our travels around North America have we found a server who was truly as interested in giving us a wonderful and lasting experience, that we could bring home with us. Ask for Iver Ramirez! We will when we visit again next year!
4th time I have stayed at Omni PA and as usual, it did not disappoint. This was a relaxing vacation with our adult children - and it was truly perfect! The Omni Is nestled in the middle of a quaint grouping of restaurants and shops around a dolphin pool. The hotel is wonderful - spacious and airy rooms w hammocks on every balcony. And truly the best showers! We spent at least a little time every day relaxing at the beach and Damien (in photo) was always there to provide us with anything we wanted -
Food, drink, recommendations on activities - he was the absolute best and one of the reasons our trip was so wonderful. Thank you to Scott Balistieri who introduced me to my favorite hotel many years ago. We will absolutely be back next year!!
