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.

We’re still currently here and enjoying every minute of it. I have never stayed somewhere where the staff were so lovely and actually seem to enjoy their job. A special shout out to all the service staff who took the time to get to know us and made sure we were looked after. I would come back here any time. Deb and Ian

Before I start writing, let me say wow!!!! I had the best experience at Oleo and can not wait to go back. Yes, I am going back for sure thanks to Cynthia Tello <3 First, BEAUTIFUL HOTEL and super nice staffs!!! I loved it was all new, clean and modern. When you check in they bring you this super refreshing juices. We got there really early and they had no problem checking us in earlier than check in time. I went with my friend Nicholas White and it was his 3rd time in Cancun but my first time. and even he said this was the best resort so far. We got to our room and I really loved it. We got sunset view room and the view at sunset was just unbelievable. Loved everything was new and it was very spacious too. Bed and pillows matters to me the most and I slept so well. I loved all white sheets! Second, FOODDDDD!!! Okay first we didnt have much time because we had to go excursion right after we checked in so we went to the restaurant by the pool. I didnt expect much because I know all inclusive resorts foods are just okay. I order ceviche and pork tacos and of course strawberry mojito!! wow... it was one of the best ceviche I have ever had in my life. I swear. I had to order another one just for myself. Their drinks were super good too. They put so much mints and it was just very refreshing! Night time we went to this restaurant next to lobby. The view at night.. its unforgettable. Food too was very good. Tuna was bomb. I don't know what they did with quail but it was just so good. Third, location!!! The location was the best. We went to three excursions and we were the always first one to dropped off. I hate to be the last one to get dropped off cause you are losing time there so it was great. Of course, there's a beach right in front of your hotel and the water is so clear. Make sure you bring snorkeling goggles and go swim during the day. They have this super cute beach canopies set up so you can just lay there and get as many drinks as possible(Server walks around takes your order). Lastly, make sure you go talk to Cynthia Tello in the end of your trip. Her desk is by the Starbucks. I wanted to come back to Oleo cause its the best resort in Cancun for the price you pay. We met Cynthia last day and she works for hotels promotion department. She had these awesome deals that you can not get through normal booking sites. They also have Atlier resort in Cancun which is little more upscale resort and Cynthia can get you the best deals. So thanks to Cynthia we are going back and I can not wait. Anyways, it was the best experience. I totally recommend this place. Read less
