“Great for golfers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

On the outskirts of Mojacar by the golf course, as Mojacar is a very spread out town (about seven kilometers long)and basically the whole town is along the sea front it can be a little difficult to find a centre of the place. The hotel has a bus stop just outside. The bus runs every half hour and costs 1,20e takes you all along the sea front via the pueblo.

Room Tip: Rums at the front give nice sea views where rooms at the back look out to the mountains, personal pr...

This is not a 4 star hotel. I have travelled and stayed in many 4 to 5 star hotels and this is should be a 3 or less. I don't usually moan but I feel I have to say it as it is. Rooms are so simple, no gowns, slippers, pen. Lime scale on shower heads, taps and toilet not working. In door pool has no life guard or lights in the evening. Food very basic and majority of staff speak little English. We had to change rooms as the first room, well I've never slept in a hard bed and the pillows are sausage pillows. Second room slightly better. This hotel is more so for the local holiday makers not the Brits if your used to alot more. This hotel was booked for us last minute, but if it was left to me I would have done my research. The area it self is faultless. The local restaurants are great and Spanish people very friendly. Fish here is great. Sorry about the moan but its better to be honest.

We r currently staying at the oasis tropical, the hotel is immaculately clean, rooms r cleaned daily and the staff always have a smile. My only minor moan would be the food, very repetitive, and not a great deal of choice, but in saying that u certainly wouldn't starve. It is a quiet time of year, so everything has decreased in size, not sure we would be just as happy in the height of the season.......?

Just got back from a week at the best oasis tropical and had a lovely time. The hotel was very clean and so were the rooms, however we had 4 rooms in a row and they were all overlooking the car park, (which was quite loud especially in the mornings due to deliveries etc!) so if you would want a better/possibly quieter view then definitely request one! One pair of our party however did have a sea view room without requesting it which was very nice!

Lovely pools and the beach was just over the road (although not too sandy!).

There were 10+ of us and Some of the bar staff didn't seem too impressed with our large drink orders at times! Also we were all inclusive and most drinks were included but not all of them. (only 3 cocktails)
The restaurant was nice and clean, the food however was a bit hit and miss. Although we didn't go hungry some of the food was quite bland and cold so did have to microwave some of the food which was a bit time consuming. Also once you have ordered your drinks when seated the staff do not come back round once your glasses were empty! So if all inclusive definitely order bottle of water and 2 x whichever drink you have!!

The majority of people staying at the hotel were Spanish and a lot of the staff could speak minimum English which proved a bit hard at times! The restaurant manager was definitely the best and communicating!

Overall I did have a nice break for a reasonable price so shouldn't really complain!

Room Tip: Request a sea view room!!

We stayed in this hotel for a week just to chill out and spend a bit of quality time together.

The hotel is very nice, clean etc, but we did not find it a very friendly hotel. The hotel was full of Spanish holidaymakers who really dont know how to smile and the same can be said for the staff. All I can assume is that as there are very few British people staying at the hotel and I dont think the Spanish tip, that the staff dont need to be friendly or polite. It was nice to get home and see smiling faces! The food was plentiful, and a very nice selection but it was very much the same most days and as we was full board got a bit sick of it all to be honest. The atmosphere in the dining room was very much like a canteen and very loud. The drinks in the hotel were very reasonably priced.

The pool area is lovely and the hotel overall has everything you need and the rooms were very nice, although a sea view would have been nicer, but for what we paid we should really grumble as it was a very cheap break.

The air con in the room is terrible. I came away with a very sore throat and we both ended up with colds when we got home.

The hotel is very out of the way from anything to do so it is best to have a car so you can get around and see Mojacar.

All in all good value for money, but wont be visiting again, wasnt for us.

Room Tip: Book a sea view room, as otherwise you overlook the car park.

Good quality and friendly hotel. Exceptional food. Reasonable priced drinks.Found the hot plates thanks to a previous post on T/A. Terrific value for money (half board). Situated towards Garrucha - we loved this town and went there often. Would have booked and paid for a sea view room but this was not an option for some reason(?) Our room was on 3rd floor and although of a very good standard it overlooked the car park, delivery bay and was situated above the the laundry extractor fan which emitted fumes. We were staying during the floods and having seen the local devastation at first hand thought our issues with the room were a very minor problem! (Good views of the mountains). Plenty of places within walking distance for lunch, drinks etc.

The drive from Mojacar to Carboneras was scenic as were the inland villages. Found the Toll road a bit scary at night. Odd, where's the traffic we thought. Found out possible reasons why when we checked it out on internet. Saved on journey time from Murcia airport though.

Would recommend the Best Oasis Tropical but check room out first. Will certainly be checking out other "Best" hotels.

Room Tip: If offered room at back make sure it is 4th floor or higher. Sea view better though.

This is a lovely 4 star hotel with an indoor pool and jacuzzi and outdoor pool jacuzzi. It has a gym if you want to use it however I didnt see many in there lol. We were on a room only basis so i cannot comment on the food. The hotel was full of spanish holidaymakers and only a few british which was nice.
This hotel is lovely and I would recommend, however it wasnt for us only because its at the other end to all the bars and restaurants and is a good 20 min ride to the bars and restaurants or a good hour walk.
