    We are newbies to the cancuncare forum, him M(27) and her J(28), and are looking for some input on Crand Oasis Sens. We recently went to Grand Oasis Cancun with our family and are planning a vacation with just the two of us. We have been to Secrets in Jamaica and Temptation as well and loved our time at both of them.

    The one big 'issue' we had with Grand Oasis Cancun, other than kids running around, was that not all of the resturants and beverages was included with the all inclusive package. We even had upgraded to the grand plus but that wasn't enough. Is this similar at Sens? Does the Ka'an club get you all resturants and all drinks with no up-charge?

    Also, we both like to wear/like the other to wear 'skimpy/revealing' swimwear. She has many wicked weasel bikinis/sheer/mesh etc and he has many square cut/bikini/thing swimwear. Are these common with the topless/relaxed atmosphere at Grand Oasis Sens pool/beach? We had no problem at Temptation, obviously, but got some dirty looks at Secrets.

    Thanks for the info!!

    The Sian Ka'an room gets you access to every single restaurant on the site, including Benazuza. You also get access to a VIP bar off the lobby, and access to a VIP section of beach, and a beach bar. Some have said they can also order lunch from the private beach area. We've had the Sian Ka'an room one time, and got it as a free upgrade. For us, it's not worth the extra cost to upgrade. YMMV.

    I wear thong bikinis and my husband wears the square cut/speedo type bottoms. We've never once been given dirty looks, or felt out of place wearing those things at the Sens. It's very much a "live and let live" type of environment, and we've always found it to be very open and non-judgmental.

    Topless is not widespread. Everyone liked it! Just a few did it.

    Wore same tiny bikinis as TTR, went topless, wore super sexy dresses at night! We decided to not do the upgrade, glad we didn't. Would have used few of the benefits. Ready to go back!!!

    Make sure when checking with the Sian Ka'an private checkin that you book the beds on the beach because they must be reserved for each and every day. Also the beautiful hard working lady who waits on the area will bring you a menu and lunch. Tip her well and enjoy.

    We just came back from both Grand Oasis and Sens. You will have no trouble getting into all of the restaurants and I recommend Benezuza for the awesome experience so take advantage of your upgrade. We had friends that stayed in an upgraded room and were not impressed so don't be afraid to ask for a different one if your balcony area leaves a bit to be desired.

    At the pool I had no trouble in thongs but would have been the only one topless. We became fast friends with Gustavo who is on the entertainment staff and he really made our trip much more fun (even let us be apart of the sea turtle hatching/release). We are posting a review if it helps but feel free to send any questions.

    I'm traveling with 4 other couples and it's our first time as well. We're coming in on the 24th to the 28th. Any pointers for this place and what the dress attire is for the restaurants like the Black Hole.

    From a man standpoint: no, thongs are not common in Oasis. Think of it as an advantage. I did wear one, and half the hotel guest said 'Hi' to me the next day :)

    For restaurants, plan on pants for men at any of the restaurants that require reservations. For the Black Hole, you'll want to take dark or black clothing. It will enhance the experience of dining in the dark. Try all of the restaurants - they're very good, and each one has something different to offer. They're also opening up a new restaurant - Careyes. If I'm not mistaken, it will be a seafood restaurant.

    Are jeans acceptable or should dress pants be the pick to wear?

    Take dress pants to be safe.

    Think you'd be OK? Well, hell yes as far as we'd be concerned.
