In no particular order:
Kazon -- they were just silly. Not the silliest, but it was just comical to see them manning the bridge of Voyager.
Bajorans -- I wanted to like them because of their history, but their religion was weird and just about every bajoran character was stereotyped into being angry/mood person who hated all cardassians. It got old after Ro Laren.
Andorians -- their antennas and white hair look dorky to me. That's all.
Trill -- they're just weird. It was super bizarre in TNG and it got only slightly better in DS9. Dax didn't help things for me, because I never liked her anyway. I also just really dislike their name; it makes them sound like fairies or something.
Betazoid -- never liked them mainly again because of character association. I wasn't a huge fan of Troi (she pretty much only ever stated the obvious and/or flirted with Riker), her mother gave me the creeps, and the only other major betazoid character I can think of was a serial killer. And, naked weddings? I didn't need that picture of Riker in my head during Nemesis.
bonus: not really a species, but have you noticed how most admirals in Trek are jerks and/or turn out to be evil? Whenever I see an admiral show up in an episode I'm instantly suspicious.
