The Oasis Palm resort, and the adjacent Grand Oasis Palm, go beyond family-friendly. These all-inclusive resorts in Cancun cater to families in a very special way with an extra-large kids' club, suites with adjoining rooms decorated to suit the little ones, a tranquil beach, and plenty of other amenities and activites designed with families in mind. The Oasis Palm is an excellent choice for a family vacation with kids under 12. Plus, two kids under twelve can stay and eat free when staying in the same room as their parents.

The Oasis Palm is situated at the northern end of the Cancun hotel zone, close to downtown Cancun. Nightclubs, shops, and restaurants are nearby and the pier where you can catch a ferry to Isla Mujeres is within walking distance. Here along the northern side of Cancun, the water is calmer, shallower and warmer than along the eastern strip of the island.

Oasis Palm Features

Mexican Flair: Many all-inclusive resorts are so insulated you may forget what country you're in, but the Oasis Palm celebrates Mexican culture through food, activities, and entertainment. A gourmet Mexican restaurant, a replica of a traditional Mexican bar, Mexican cooking classes, tequila and mezcal tastings, Mexican folkloric exhibits and performances, and Mexican decor give guests an opportunity to learn more about Mexico.

For the Kids: The large kids' club at the Oasis Palm offers an expanded children’s program which features cooking lessons, a disco, movies, a games area with Wii and Xbox, pool and water slide, activity rooms, and a playground. Family suites at the Oasis Palm have adjoining childrens' rooms that are decorated in either a jungle or under-the-sea theme.

Adult Fun: Of course while the kids are enjoying themselves at the kids' club, the adults want to have some fun too. Grown-ups can have some quiet time at the pool, enjoy a drink at one of the many bars, or take some time out for pampering at the spa.

Recreational amenities include two swimming pools with ocean view (one Grand category), a children's pool, a sauna, a fitness facility, and a children's club. The property's full-service health spa has massage/treatment rooms and beauty services. The beach has shallow water until quite far out, making it ideal for families with young children to play on the beach with no worries about undertow.

The Bottom Line: With its expanded kids' club and child-friendly amenities, Oasis Palm is a great choice for a family vacation. Plus, parents and kids alike will have a chance to learn about Mexican culture and cuisine.
