An April 2005 trip
to Cancun by mfoxdm16
Quote: Paradise? YES!!! (and no)
For the first time, we tried the all-inclusive route, hoping to make things easier. How about NO! The Oasis Cancun overbooked and sent us to a affiliated resort, The Oasis Beach, and said it was nicer, "so consider it an upgrade." Actually, it's not. And it is about 3 miles off the main strip. The windows don't even open in the rooms, the food was foul, and the drinks would have been great if they only had any alcohol. The America West plane we were leaving on broke down when coming in, and so we missed our connecting flight in Phoenix and had to stay the night at a hotel, without any food since Cancun, since the replacement plane was empty and everything was closed at the AZ airport, as well as the hotel not serving anything by the time we got there. FUN, FUN, FUN!

Blvd KuKulcan Km 5.5
Attraction | "Lounging on the Beach"
(I can't stress this enough though; stay at a larger, well-known resort if you can. All the good ones are on the best part of the beach, and the service will be 100 times better than at the ones that just looked great in the pictures.)
