Looking for calm water in Cancun

We have been to the Oasis Viva 2 years ago, and we enjoyed the food and calm water (on a day pass). But the reviews regarding the smelly rooms and food limitations is making me think twice about booking at this hotel. Is there any other all inclusive hotel that has calm water ?

I am returning to Oasis Palm Beach for the first two weeks of August. The hotel is great with 5 restaurants, kids club. Once you arrive for the check-in upgrade your room to a suite with balcony. It cost me an extra $225 last year for two adults and two kids. I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed. The view is magnificient and the balcony is about 20 feet by 20 feet. The ocean is very calm (perfect for kids), the snorkeling is excellent, I managed two get two giant conch shells last year. The Grand Oasis Caribbean Resort is just next door, you can use their infinity pool. The value at the Oasis Palm Beach is very good. Check it out...I have been to Cancun 18 times so far. All the hotels on the first stretch of the beach from downtown is very calm up to the convention Center. After that all the hotels face the ocean and the waves can get pretty big.

I have to second Dreams Resort & Spa. When we were there, the ocean was almost as calm as a pool. Great Resort!
