My husband and I arrived to Grand Venetians late and as the El Oasis del Holi was right next to it, we decided to go there for dinner. We had an amazing view of the sunset, the food was delicious but as the place was...very busy, it took long to come. My husband had garlic shrimp in pineapple and a beer and I had coconut shrimp in pineapple and a margarita. The fifty US$ seemed a little steep to pay for it. There was a local band but it was very loud and not that amazing. We stayed at Grand Venetian for a whole month but did not go back.More

Whether a simple taco or a Mocajetti with cheese, beef, cactus chicken or one of their great shrimp dishes you won’t be disappointed. The coconut shrimp served on a cooked pineapple is the best I have had.

The view is beautiful for sunset watching but the rest yikes!! Creepy people in the parking lot kinda washing cars or something..they appear to live there in a structure on the outside...lots of rags and shopping carts full of stuff before you even enter. Old...used serving dishes for food presentation. Bathrooms..DO NOT GO THERE!! This is a dirty little beach bar, which may appear cool but for food and hygiene purposes I definitely will not return..doesn’t matter how great the food may be (didn’t want to order food after seeing the mess and unclean situation) ..just had a beer and left..yikes that is one scarey place regardless of the beautiful view, how the City of PV allows that place to stay open with no plumbing and fresh water is a very sad thing..beautiful location on the PUBLIC beach, could be soo nice..DO NOT USE THE BATHROOMS!! and the behind the scenes stuff in a restaurant tells it all..More

Our food was okay (fonduto arrachera and tacos arrachera), not great. Margaritas were served in chipped glasses. Tortilla chips must have been the end of the batch because they were in very small pieces; salsas were served in chipped bowls that I think had been...around all afternoon. The sand floor was littered with bottle caps, straws, paper. Dirty dishes were piled on trays around the restaurant and never hauled away. We had to clear our own table once we sat down. Service was poor. They were NOT busy. To top it all off, they tried to overcharge us. So if you want mediocre food and poor service in a dirty restaurant, this is the place!More

Very good food and friendly staff. The food is very good! The great thing about this restaurant is the proximity to the breach and constant ocean breeze. They also have live music in the evenings with well set up stages and lighting.

Great little hidden gem. We always stop by for a few drinks and some tacos. Usually always on our first night in Vallarta, to celebrate our vacation. Beautiful beach view, rustic little place with great service

The view at sunset is incredible. The coconut shrimp is really good. Nothing else at our table was worth the money. The service was really slow and not super friendly.

Nov 2019 Oasis del Holi Puerto Vallarta Girls Dinner on the Beach. Very large restaurant much of it oceanside. Colorful atmosphere, sand floor, right on the beach. plastic tables and chairs with colorful tablecloths Nice view of the ocean and surrounding areas. Our waiter Raul...was attentive throughout the meal, very friendly. We each had a beer and Garlic shrimp with rice and veggies for 199 pesos. We had a lovely time chatting and just enjoying the area. Excited to see each other after a few months and not paying attention, which should not be required, we asked for the check. We never got one just a total figure of 600 pesos written down. We paid even tipped and walked back to the main road to get an Uber. Later on we realized we had been "ripped off". No way were our beers 100 pesos each (even with the 15% surcharge for on the beach charge I have read about, that is also unjustly ridiculous). Despite the food being good and service fine, I will not be going back due to the lack of a bill and obvious "rip off". If you go thoroughly check and make sure you get an itemized bill.More

We have been coming here for 10 years and it is always a beautiful spot and they have always improved every year. The food this year was much better than in the past. However, they had a corporate party near us when we came to...look at the Sunset and erected a structure right in front of us right after the sunset when we were still enjoying The View. We ask the management to move us and to comp us a couple of drinks because of the irritation factor. Management was adamant in refusing! This is not a way to run a restaurant in any country in the world.More

Yes you can walk it from the north. The river is shallow about waist high full of trash most days.
