Have mixed feelings about our accommodation in this 4 star hotel. Upon arrival we were met with a very luke-warm greeting by older male receptionist whereas the English couple who arrived minutesafter us were met with smiles and very much warmer greeting - they were staying as hotel guests rather than timeshare holidaymakers...! Initially was told room was not ready... More

Reading some of the other reviews it seems others were luckier than us in their experiences. I have photo's of cockroaches 1.5 inches long and .5 inch width, two of which we left trapped under a plastic bowl on the bathroom floor as further evidence. The staff didn't seem the least bit surprised when the problem was reported which made... More

Just spent 5 days there. When we arrived the reception staff (aka Mr Grumpy as he is now known to my wife and I) didn't even greet us, he was busy on the computer and my wife had to greet him before he looked up. You would have thought that because of all the comments about the reception staff the... More

This hotel is definitely not a 4* hotel, the room equipment is elderly and used, noisy airconditioning and bathroom fan, smelling bathroom and not very well cleaned. The staff is not very pleasant - overall very deceiving.

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
