A friend and I shared a non-airconditioned bungalow at the Hotel Oasis the last few days of January and first few days of February. We were extremely pleased with our stay. The ceiling fans were more than sufficient to keep us comfortable in the evenings. (We were out and about during the daylight hours.) Also, being set higher up on the hillside, we enjoyed the gentle breezes that came through the grounds of the resort. Although the beds all came with mosquito nets, we found that our stay during the dry season made them unnecessary. The bungalow came with a small fridge, hot plate, and dishes with drying rack. I missed not having a microwave, but not significantly as the only meal we ate in the bungalow would be primarily fresh fruit and juices purchased at local grocery stores. There is no restaurant on site or poolside bar, but proper planning and a well stocked fridge took care of that. The owner of the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful in setting up any activities we wished to participate in...a service level not frequently associated with hotels in this price range. The pool and hotel grounds overall are clean and quite pretty. I would recommend Hotel Oasis without reservation for those looking for a quality experience at a very reasonable price.
