“Very Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

I was very impressed with the property upon driving into the resort. From the front of the resort it appeared well kept, large, and the front desk help was helpful. Unfortunately the room itself was disappointing.
Upon walking up to our two bedroom villa I noticed weeds growing throughout the flower beds onto the front walk way. Once inside the villa I found the room to be dirty. The floors didn't appear to have been mopped in months, there were cob webs hanging from the ceiling, the refrigerator. wasn't cleaned out, there was food stuck to the walls, and the cabinets were sticky with food. I attempted to clean the villa myself only to find the vacuum broken and the floors and cabinets were so caked with dirt and food I couldn't get them clean with the few supplies I had brought with me.
The villa furniture was nice. I was surprised to only see a TV in one of the bedrooms. We were also disappointed that there internet services would only work for a few minutes at a time and then shut down. We had better luck using the McDonalds internet. I also found that the only way to use my iPhone was to walk out on the drive way. I lost all cell coverage in the room.
When walking around the resort it appears they have permanent residents living in the villas. Many of villas were decorated differently and some of the residents were quite loud at 10:00 at night.
We were supposed to stay for 7 nights. We decided to leave early and eat the cost of the room after 3 nights.

nice 1 bedroom villa for a family of 5, plenty of space. full kitchen, other than needing to call to supply us with the use of a pan and no coffee maker in the room, the staff quickly met our needs. Also, our room had a king size bed in the a private room, murphy bed in the living area and couch. The use of 2 bikes included in your stay. Tennis and basketball also available on the premises. Beautifully landscaping, wonderful getaway, would stay again. Nice large pool and additionally 7 more pools available close to the villa. shops close by, downtown PS, great location!

We got a 2 bedroom delux unit with den which was spacious. I could stay here all year if i needed to. The bad thing is the pools and spas. They heat the even numbers and the odd numbers are not heated. I can understand the pool situation but to not heat the spas is insane. who wants ot get in a cold spa?

The grounds were nice with tall shady trees and lots of greenery. The water stream area had a greenish , yellowish tint to it. Needed cleaning. The office had grit all over the check in counter. They said it was from construction. They gave us a rather confusing map on how to get to our accommodations, #2, after having to wait from 2:30 to 3:30 PM.
We got what seemed like hopelessly lost trying to follow the map. There were no numbers clearly posted on the units or anywhere that we could make the identification. We weaved around winding roads in this maze, dodging bicyclists, mostly teens and kids of all ages for 1/2 an hour before finding our unit. It was 106 degrees out, schlepping our luggage into the unit.
It was cool inside and very well stocked with all needed to live there, however we were not moving in.
The bedspread was OLD and we put it in the closet right away, knowing they don't wash them but every 6 months or so , and this one maybe 2 years and 6 mo.
The walls , were in disrepair, there was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom, a health hazard and the odor of the place was less than desirable. There was a washer and dryer, dishwasher, big GE refrigerator, microwave, nice glass table with 4 chairs. Living room with questionably clean furniture we were afraid to sit on. 2 big ,old TV's one in LR and the other in the BR. They worked well at least.
The patio had 2 bikes, his and hers, a big grill and a nice table with 4 chairs. Too hot to be outside ,for us.
There were 5 small pools, filled with happy , screaming kids , everywhere. Great family place, not for couples .
The unit above us must have had a child because we heard it running around like a Giraffe wearing cement shoes.
The bed was divine! Slept like a rock. I LOVED the bed! No food to be had , unless you brought it with you or you left to go out to eat.
We disinfected the whole place with 99 wipes and trusted we would not pick up anything frightening. They warned of the place being buggy too. YIPES!!!
We survived the experience but would not return.

Stayed here with 3 lady friends - one of which owned the time share. Easy to get to from the airport and great location from which to launch all your sun drenched activities. The mountains (not sure of their name!) frame the horizons when you walk out of your condo. The condo is clean and well appointed (extra 2 piece bath), washer/dryer and a bbq. Each grouping of condos has its own pool and hot tub. There is a small attached garage in the front of the condo which houses 2 bikes. The streets that run in and around the condos are immaculate. The small workout room could have a few more pieces of equipment but I was in there twice and I didn't have any company, so perhaps not well used. There are tennis courts to use. A walk of a block to the north is a beautiful 9 hole executive golf course and a block in the other direction is the famous " The Parker" - hotel of the stars when they come to play in the desert. (we saw Tori Spelling/Dean McDermott and 3 babes in tow). The hotel has a lovely courtyard that you can walk around and then buy $15 margarita - just so you are assured you are surrounded by pomp! lol I would dearly love to come back to this property.

Oasis is a timeshare resort, but also has vacation rentals and nightly rates available. Through a friend who owned a timeshare, we had the opportunity to stay here for 2+ weeks in February. We could not have been more pleased.

ACCOMMODATIONS:
It turns out a condo described on their website as a '2-bedroom, 2-bath, + den' is actually an adorable little villa with a 2-car garage, 2 bikes, and ample space to spread out. Everything was impeccably clean. The master bedroom had 2 very large closets and an en suite bathroom with a huge bathtub and granite countertops. The second bedroom had another large closet, an en suite bathroom with granite countertops, and a tiled shower. The ‘den’ had a Murphy bed and a desk/chair, with shutter doors for privacy in case it’s used as a bedroom. The living room was huge – 1 large sofa and 2 chairs, coffee table, and a large entertainment center with TV. There was a 6-person glass dining table next to the kitchen. The full-size kitchen was lovely and fully equipped with everything you would need during your stay: granite countertops, gas stove, dishwasher, dish cloths & towels, flatware, serving utensils, glass cups, plastic cups to bring to the pool, paper towels, wine glasses, pots & pans, bakeware, platters, wine bottle opener (very important), plates, bowls, dish soap, etc.. There’s even a full size side-by-side washer and dryer in the unit, which was especially convenient (buy your own detergent, as it is one of the only things not provided). There was a patio in the back with a nice 4-person patio set, and a gas grill (nice touch!). The unit only shared 1 garage wall with the home next door, so it was very quiet and we never heard our neighbors. The units were also offset, so there were only a couple windows facing the home next to us.

GROUNDS:
This is a gated development with waterfalls around every corner, lush and mature landscaping, meandering pathways for relaxing strolls, tennis courts, quiet streets, and quiet people. No party kids here – only happy guests that want to relax and enjoy the sunshine. There are 8 pools. Seriously – 8 pools. Odd-numbered pools are heated, even-numbered pools are not. The main pool next to the clubhouse is very pretty with several patio sets to eat lunch or drink cocktails, and plenty of lounge chairs for sunbathing. We are a childless couple and we covet quiet or adults-only pools when we travel. The pool was wonderfully relaxing most days -- there was only 1 day when the screaming children and their incompetent parents were so unbearable we packed up and left. I’ll never understand why parents think it’s completely acceptable to disrupt everyone’s day at the pool by allowing their children to scream non-stop. Ok, moving on… I should mention there IS an adults-only pool, which is smaller than the main pool, but looked lovely. Had we encountered the screaming children again, we would have headed over in that direction.

MISCELLANEOUS:
--Wi-fi. Free if you are a timeshare owner, nominal fee for others (I think it was less than $10/day). For the most part it was fast and reliable for working/VPN, with only a few hiccups.
--Housekeeping only comes once a week – which is all you need since you have a washer/dryer. They supply plenty of towels and paper products to get you through the week, in addition to a few cleaning supplies.
--Lots of grocery stores in the area: Vons, Ralphs, Fresh & Easy, etc. (we preferred Ralphs, hands-down).

If you visit Oasis, stay as long as you can – even at the end of our 17 days, we didn’t want to leave. Thank you for a wonderful stay at this beautiful resort!
