Myself and two of my girlfriends just came back from our stay at the hotel... Upon arriving the hotel has a great atmosphere, with music playing by the pool and a really nice beach!
As three twenty year olds, one thing that we were not crazy about was the first couple days at the hotel there were mostly couples and families.. As the week went on more younger people came but if you are a young adult and you are looking for a party hotel, then I highly reccomend the Oasis!(I will reiterate, only if you are going to party) it's amazing, mostly only 18-30 year olds that are all just looking to have a good time.
Aside from that though, the hotel and bar manager introduced himself to us right away and made sure that we felt welcome and told us that if we needed anything we shouldn't be shy to ask.
The rooms themselves are average, nothing special but nice. We paid for a standard room so we didn't have much of a balcony or a view but what they don't tell you is for 15 dollars you can upgrade your room, so I would do that! We met some people that were staying in the deluxe sweets and the balcony had a hammock and everything!
All of the staff was soo friendly and welcoming, by the end of the trip we had made friends with a couple of them! The people at the front desk are not included in that review though . They were meh.
If you want to buy wifi time through the hotel, DON'T! It's sooo expensive. I can't remember the prices exactly but I beleive for example, 5 days of one 30 minute wifi session a day was 300 dollars. Wish I was kidding! We figured out that if you go to this little place called "The Pirate Bar" or something like that, they will give you free wifi as long as you buy a drink! The bar is not technically a part of the hotel but it is connected to it. You just walk down to the beach, take a right past the volleyball net and the Buffet and you'll see it around the corner! If you have trouble finding it then ask the staff but its fairly easy to find.
The food there is pretty good but if you have a pretty healthy diet like myself be prepared for few options. I ended up just eating whatever but was very satisfied with each meal!
There are some activities to do around the hotel but a would suggest trying some of the excursions that you have available to you! Also, Coco Bongos is a must! For all ages. Seriously changed my life.
Overall, I would definitley stay at this hotel again. I love the staff, atmosphere, food, etc. but as I said, if you are coming as a group of young adults I would try booking Oasis. If you decide not to go there then you will still have an amazing time here. Plus, it is nice to be able to have a quiet sleep and a relaxed hungover morning around the pool!
Families and couples of all ages, I guarantee you will like this hotel.
Hope that helps! Enjoy the cervezas !
