My partner and I have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Oasis, it was our first visit and one to be repeated I am sure! Upon arrival we were invited to sit in the lounge area and were treated to Oasis special cocktails whilst Mike ran through the basics with us. We opted to hire a fan rather than the air conditioning and it was more than sufficient. We were shown to our room, D5 which was on the quiet side of the complex. The room was perfect, no direct sunshine which kept in nice and cool with a selection of hammocks and a table and chairs in the sunshine of the garden area. We had our own patio area with a table and chairs which was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and well laid out, hot water occasionally evaded us when showering in the evening but this is commonplace in Greece and in fact in most hot countries at peak times. A cool shower is no hardship after a day in the sunshine. The kitchen area is well equipped with a fridge, double hotplate, microwave, toaster and kettle. The cupboards are stocked with plenty of crockery and pans for cooking but we chose only to use the kettle and the toaster as the food at the bar and in the restaurants was too tempting. There was a tea towel, washing up liquid and a washing up sponge so no need to pack those.
Mike and Eleni are wonderful hosts and quickly made us feel relaxed and part of their holiday family. Mike has a wealth of knowledge and is always available to offer advice, recommendations or assistance wherever you need it. He has a way of making you feel part of the family without intruding on your holiday, a true gift. The pool is lovely for a dip and there are plenty of sunbeds available. The grounds are beautifully kept and all the staff do a great job. It was lovely to see the chickens and ducks wandering around their enclosure and we quickly made friends with the dogs, I would have loved to have seen them wandering around but do understand that not everyone is a dog fan so Mike has obviously taken this on board and ensures that they are kept under control at all times. I was a little sad to see the horses weren't there!
We were always greeted with a friendly hello and a smile by everyone. There is something very special about sitting on a comfy sofa with Ouzo in hand watching a large screen in the warmth of Skiathos! The Oasis is perfectly placed for walking into town with a supermarket close by and a wealth of shops and restaurants. There is a beach within a pleasant half hour walk and the bus is very easy to use to access the many other beaches along the coast. Mike helped us organise hire of a bike and gave us a very helpful map with some pointers showing places to visit. We had great fun exploring a little further afield and had the security of Mike's phone number in the event of any difficulties (of which there were none). After 9 years together my partner proposed to me and I can think of no better place for such a special event. This is not a 5 star hotel but I am grading it as a Greek self catering establishment and as such there is no place we would rather stay. Thanks Mike, Eleni and all your staff for making our stay so memorable xx
