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
I recently spent 2 weeks at the Omni Puerto Aventuras hotel, the hotel was very clean especially the rooms, the young lady that came in every day was very nice, friendly and was very thorough. The hotel was in a great location, the beach was nice although fighting with the man who put out the sun beds everyday wasn’t good, for some reason I wasn’t allowed to put the bed in the sun it had to stay in the shade, I later realised that if I had tipped him I could have put my sun bed anywhere as I saw money changing hands. The breakfast was okay but there was only one waiter that was on the ball and friendly, the others were surly and one was quite rude and found it difficult to serve me.They also played very loud music at breakfast. Reception was helpful. I didn’t have dinner or lunch at the hotel or use the bar. I am English so only tip if I get good service at the end of my stay not every day because it is what is expected. So no tip for bad breakfast service was made.
Nice resort, small and out of the way.They rebuilt the beach, more sand , more palm trees. Service is a bit slow. Small pool. The seaweed is starting to roll in so ocean access will become a problem. Same for most of the Yucatan Peninsula at this time of year.
Went for a weekend to get away and it was perfect...!, the view from the restaurant facing the beach is awesome beautiful and relaxing, go and check the dolphins in the lagoon across from the hotel.
There are many restaurants and shops in town.
The Omni is exactaly qhat we are looking for in a vacation. A small place that has a feel of a country club with a few rooms. The restaurant is great for breakfast and lunch, and our daily waiter Iver Ramirez was great. Also lots of great restaurants just a very short walk across the street. The Omni is small but has everything we want; beach, nice pool, great weather and cocktails! We will be back for a 3rd trip in 2020.
Such a relaxing vacation spot. Safe, quiet little town of Puerto Aventuras is delightful. Walk the marina, lay on the beach, enjoy the poolside bar.
This is not a place for those who want to dress up and enjoy the nightlife. It is for people who like fine dining in their shorts and spending lots of time in the sun.
