Great place to stay if you want easy, clean LARGE unit. Stocked kitchen makes it easy to save and cook meals. Large deck with table and hammocks overlooking the ocean and stairs to the beach isn't too shabby. 2 pools (1 adult and 1 kid) are very nice and there's a quiet, secluded beach right in front of you. Sea turtles nesting all over the beach. Great snorkeling in front of hotel and about a 15 min walk down the beach. Definitely a place to go if you want the "opposite of Cancun" experience.

We love this resort it was our 5th visit to the Grand Oasis. The staff are all accommodating and friendly. Very clean, outdoor areas are kept spotless. Beach is wonderful. Buffet could be better but other restaurants are all good. We are already planning our next visit.
We Loved the quiet atmosphere within the Oasis Tulum Hotel. Everyone was courteous. The buffet was wonderful (large selection) fresh fruit. The servers were great, someone was always there to provide you drinks. The rooms were clean (great air conditioning) and the cleaning staff was very professional. Our room was a standard room garden view. The beach was beautiful, better than some of the other hotels (did not have sand bag wave stops) perfect for snorkeling (lots of fish). You could take long walks in either direction along the beach. The hotel is close to the Tulum ruins, Coba, Akumal and The Playa del Carmen - you could take a bike from the hotel to the main road and catch a local bus. We will be back and would recommend this hotel to all.
Really enjoyed our stay at this resort. Very expansive grounds with lots of walking required, (you can take the tram, but the tram frequency varies between lobbies/villas, and it can be quite a wait at times) the walkways and boardwalks are well maintained and make for pleasant strolls. The beach is long with lots of lounge chairs, and although there is a rocky entry to the water, the swimming is great, and you can snorkel right off of the beach along some good coral structure. The food was good, but the highlight was the unlimited a la carte access, with reservations required at only two of the many restaurants. The most we waited to get in to one of the restaurants was 1 hour, but they gave us a beeper and we went to the lobby bar for drinks until the beeper went off. Some shopping available within resort, gift shops and the like. They have a nightly market at each lobby with local artisans and the usual kitschy souvenir fare. The resort is working hard to be environmentally conscious, and they take their turtle protection seriously, which is great. Exchanging money at the front desk is pretty hit or miss, so if you are a tipper, take lots of small bills with you, though sometimes the bartenders with break larger bills for you if you ask nicely.
Most restaurants were great. Rodizio was not very good, meat was cheaper cuts of meat. Hotel is very large so lots of walking but worth it. Rooms were clean and well air conditioned. I have stayed at other places along the Riviera Maya and Grand Palladium Colonial was one I might stay at again. I would recommend the Colonial or White Sands because they are in the middle of the resort so closer to everything. The Salt Water pool was nice for my teenagers to practice snorkeling but only used for an hour the whole trip. We ended up snorkeling along the beach instead. I loved that vendors were all over the resort for shopping. The beach was nice and we could snorkel in it seeing lots of fish. Drinks were great and staff was amazing.
