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 had a wonderful time at the Omni. There were 8 of us on a siblings trip and the location could not have been better. The hotel is small, so it was very easy to navigate. The common areas are very nice with lots spaces for groups to gather. We were there in September so it wasn't very crowded but didn't seem dead like some resorts do in off season, (restaurants ect.closed). All bars and the restaurant were fully staffed and service was very good. It wasn't always fast, remember you are in Mexico, just sit back and enjoy. The continental breakfast is just fruit and rolls, but you can have a full cooked to order breakfast for a few pesos more. The beach bar was a fun place to hang and the bar staff made it fun with good interaction. And the view was wonderful.
The rooms a very comfortable and the air conditioning was very good. The beds in my opinion were fantastic, but I perfer a firm bed. Rooms had everything you needed for a comfortable stay but be aware there is a charge if you use the coffe maker in your room. In fact you have to sign for all food and drinks during your stay if you don't pay each time. That worried us a bit, but we didn't have any problems with any over charges. We didn't eat there very much as the location was so convenient to many restaurants in town. Just a short walk away. But any food we had was good and the drinks were really good. I am a margarita snob and I had some really good ones with fresh squeezed lime and top shelf tequila with no up charge.
I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely hotel and the town of Puerto Aventuras. My brother in law coul not stop talking about how fun the area is, as there are so many restaurants and things to do all right conveniently located. No car needed.
I added a few photos, not a great photographer but you can get the gist.
Food and drinks were great. Bed on the form side for us but still good. Great pillows. Puerto Aventuras is a great, gated community. Very safe and secure. Beautiful beach area at the Omni. Snorkel right off shore. Great sand. Beach has come back after last few years. Staff great. Helpful and friendly. Very relaxing trip.
Excellent hotel with good food, the people from the hotel are the nicest people, they have an area to see the dolphins and sea lions, a beautiful quiet beach without waves and two excellent pools to rest. The best of all is that my room had a jacuzzi!!
