After reading some of the not so good reviews about this hotel I did wonder what we would turn up to. We were greeted warmly. Our room was ready even though we turned up 2 hours early for booking in. Our room 407 was not in the best place in the hotel, facing out onto the restaurant. The one bedroom... More

Arrived at this hotel in August and myself and my partner were greeted with a friendly face and great customer service. We were given directions to our room and found it for ourselves (which we preferred to carry our own bags rather than have someone do that for us). Our room was situated on the side of the hotel but... More

Me & my partner booked this hotel spur of the moment as we wanted to go away, we arrived at the hotel (only 10 mins via taxi from the airport) & we found the hotel staff very friendly, the rooms very clean with the maids coming in every day cleaning the apartment (we went self catering) you have access to...

This is a good hotel in an excellent location right on the sea cliffs - the views from the hotel are incredible! It is in Canico de Baixo which is about a 35 minute walk from Canico. There are a few restaurants and bars very close to the hotel and the walk up to Canico (which is very, very steep)... More

When I read the reviews from this hotel I wondered if people were writing about two different hotels called Oasis as the reviews were so polarised. Myself, wife and grown up family have just spent two weeks at the Oasis and this is our definitive review. The hotel is situated on the edge of the sea. A sea view is... More

Stayed for 5 days in June and enjoyed every minute. The room was large, bright and clean with a fantastic sea view, the balcony was a lovely place to sit and enjoy drinks. Perhaps the only slightly negative aspect was the below average buffet breakfast, did not have any other meal there so I cannot comment on them. The pool... More

Okay, rooms are big and quite nice but all the rest was terrible. Staff is very rude and not friendly at all. The sunbeds near the pool are old and almost every chair is broken. At first sight the hotel is clean, but it is anly for the eye. Not a nice terrace to enjoy the view with a drink.... More

room cleaned regularly and food excellent and plentiful with superb selection of dishes. All rooms appear to have a sea view and ours was great. Only 1 internet screen available and difficult to find anywhere pleasant to walk by the sea.
