Arrived Monday 9th Sept 2013.
Check in friendly and straight forward.
Room A405 spotless and clean, well equiped kitchen. kettle, toaster (toaster did not work but replaced within 2 minutes of calling reception). microwave, coffee machine, juicer. all plates etc, and tea towel.
Bottle of water tea and coffee and small milk on side. Large living area, and balcony. Large bedroom, plenty of storage. Big bathroom, bath, separate shower, two sinks. Dressing gowns, Room cleaned dailey except Sunday. Great pools. Pool bar expensive for drinks and main bar which was down stairs. Not much entertainment, but didn't bother us. (when pool bar closed no where to get a drink for those that wanted one until the main bar opened)
Had buffet in restaurant which was very good, the fruit crumble was very nice.
Wasn't much around, german bar, cafe, spar shop, gift shop, a couple of restaurants. A must is La carreton steak house, 5 minutes walk on left hand side past the chinese. excellent mixed grill here would have cost £12-15 at least (and not as good) but was 9.95 Euros.
Yes it seems along way from anything but it's not that bad.
Took a steady walk to Holiday World down hill, took about 15-20 minutes, about 25 minutes to walk back. Free bus to Maspolamas beach, there and back just ask reception.
4-5 Euros in a taxi to Playa del ingles. (here £12 for same journey).
Walk down hill to catch No1 bus to Peurto Rico and Morgan, 6.45 Euros one way for two. Friday morning market in Morgan.
Do not except the first second, third or forth+ price on the stalls. I asked the price of an item and was told it was 25 euros, i still walked away at 10 and the price was falling. Do not pick anything up, you'll never get away. Some shops show a price then when you take to counter they say oh it's on wrong rail etc, walk away. Do not get ripped off at the cafe across from market, they charged us 3.95 euros for a can of fanta, which i questioned but was firmly told that's the price if no price displayed ask. We won't be going to that cafe again.
Definately go on the submarine it's worth it. Went on buggies which was good but next time will hire one for the day, it's cheaper. For night life in playa del ingles don't go out until 10.30, nothing starts to happen until after then. Will definately go back to Palm Oasis, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
