We stayed for a week in April. Hotel is quiet, small, with a nice pool and beautifully maintained gardens. We stayed in one of the bungalows, which are very well appointed. Cable TV (not that we watched much), Wi-Fi all worked well. Also has a drinking water dispenser, which was so needed, and meant we didn't have to carry it... More

Hotel Oasis is a great spot. Close enough for a five minute walk into town, yet just far enough away that you hear more monkeys than motorcycles. Jessica and the staff were great. My wife and I stayed in one of the bungalows which was perfect for us. No AC, but the fans and blinds work great for that afternoon... More

Jessica and the friendly staff provided outstanding service, going out of their way to ensure clean comfortable accommodations, answer our many questions, book excursions and recommend anything that might make our time in Costa Rica memorable. The hotel is about a third of a mile south of Santa Teresa--an easy stroll--which works out perfectly when it comes to noise and... More

We stayed at Oasis for 10 nights - 8 in a bungalow and 2 in a studio. The units are very well equipped for cooking your own meals, which we did frequently. Everything you need for provisions can be purchased at Ronny #1, about a 20 minute walk along the beach, or 10 minutes on the road. The Studios have... More

We rented one of the studios for a week. It had plenty of room for two, a comfortable bed, good size bathroom with a walk in shower and good AC. The area outside the room was perfect for having your morning coffee, whipping up a breakfast omelet or cooking a dinner meal. Daily Housekeeping was excellent. The pool was a... More

Its a great place. Clean pool, nice bungalow! You can her and see the monkeys. We traveled with a t6months toddlers and everybody from the staff was very helpful with us. I really recommend this place for anybody who likes to surf! You need a car though to go to more hidden beaches!
