Writing a good review about Hotel Oasis is going to be easy. I can't think of a single bad thing I can say.
To set the scene we initially had a very poor night in a Bocas hostel and immediately searched for a new place to stay for our remaining two nights. We found Oasis from the good reviews and were happy to get a room. On arrival Jose and Mira welcomed us and we headed straight into the lovely open bar/dining area that gets a nice breeze running through it and enjoyed a beer on the jetty in the sun. From that point we knew we were going to enjoy our time here.
We found it nice to be situated on the slightly quieter Carenero Island. From here Bocas Town is only a couple of hundred metres away in a $1 boat taxi.
The room was extremely spacious with good AC and a excellent shower. The breakfast was a nice plate of eggs to order with toast and the ever handy coffee dispenser for a good couple of cups to get the day going.
Above and beyond the hotel itself what really makes this place special are the welcoming hosts. At one point Jose even directed us to a lovely beach in Bocas del Drago, the photos were stunning and it was great to see something different to the constantly touted Red Frog beach. In the end we actually stayed for a third night because we were having such a good time. When it came time to leave we got a big hug from our amazing hosts and I can genuinely say we were a bit sad to go.
