Oleo Cancun Playa

Cancun, Mexico

The hotel

Using minimalism to maximum effect, the sculptural ice-white architecture and matching monochrome interiors of Óleo Cancún Playa give it a calm chicness that’s a far cry from the buzz and colour of your setting — right at the start of the famously vibrant Cancún Hotel Zone. The dedication to ‘white’ is only really interrupted by flashes of blue — homage to the sea and surf just steps from the hotel. Overlooking the beach, the infinity pool adds a touch more turquoise, with the pool bar’s tropical-inspired cocktails adding their own shots of colour. The styling may be minimalist, but the features aren’t. You’ve got spa treatments, complimentary WiFi, an art workshop, and restaurant menus that take you from Japan to Mexico and Peru, with stops on the way for comfort food, international favourites, and bakery treats served up with Starbucks™ coffee.

Just to name a few of the amazing staff we met were: Rudy from the information area, Carlos from the wait staff, Jonathan and William from the bar, Josefine from the spa, and Luis from the Boutique. The resort made us all feel safe even with COVID-19. They have taken all precautions and would highly recommend this resort. I look forward to going back in the near future. Read less

We highly recommended OLEO Cancún. Everybody did an amazing job. Rudy one of the great reception people tried to fulfill every wish of the guest. He organized an unforgettable birthday for my wife. He took care of transport, arranged sightseeing up to an wonderful family dinner. The pool area is a little bit smaller than it seems in the pictures but the waiters at the pool are running all day long to bring the guest in 100% satisfaction. Ray, Dany and William was one of the nice guys that took care of our cups/glasses which never runs out of liquid. Also the food which these guys served was amazing. The guys at the pool kitchen did also a very nice job. Breakfast and Dinner was always very delicious. We went to this place in time of COVID so unfortunately just two of 5 Restaurants was open. In our last days of vacation the Hotel starts to open more Restaurants. Everybody took care of us and we really enjoyed our stay. We ant to say Thank you to the kitchen team: Tony the cook (amazing) restaurant team: Iliana,Blas,Dulce,Manuel,Jose !!! Thx for some spanish lessons :-)) Read less

After not being able to travel during spring break, we were eager to go out. Oleo was our first choice because it is affordable and it had great reviews. We absolutely loved our stay at oleo. It has an amazing view of the beach, great restaurants and the staff was very kind to us. We're definitely coming back soon.

Our time at oleo was very relaxing, the food was great and the hotel was sparkling clean. All the staff was wearing masks and followed health protocols, which made us feel very safe. The beach was amazing this time of year, we really enjoyed basking in the warm sun after being at home for so long. The food was delicious and the staff was very welcoming. Read less
