I came here on a holiday by myself and chose this place because it seemed quiet and a bit out of the way. My apartment was overlooking the pool and just above a kiddies play area where people let their kids scream until midnight while they drank until the bar shut. Then at around 7.00 am the noise from the pool with kids was terrible AND they were doing heavy drilling on the apartment next ddor starting at 7.00am so all in all I didn't get one full night's sleep. No air conditioning and the staff very unfriendly. If I got a free holiday to go back here I would not go. Oh, and the beach is miles away so you need to get a taxi or a bus.

just arrived back from vista oasis after a two week stay with my partner and are 3 yr son, had a great time here, quiet location buses run just down the road to puerrto rico for the day fab views on the bus, amadores beach a must see, playa ingles more for young crowd so we stayed in maspalomas/ puerto rico, spar just around the corner for all ur essentials, the shop in reception opens till late bar closes at midnight (sharp)... weather was fab reached temp of 32 one of the days. no air con in the appartments but airy enough basic but clean great balconys with lovely views at night! the restaurant in the complex is very basic set menu but eatable! if your looking for a relaxing hoilday with children this is the place!

Very isolated. If you want to go to sea to swim you have to go to Playa Del Ingles, between €4 and €5 each way in taxi.Courtesy bus goes Maspalomas but extremely stoney in water, unsafe to swim.Only one restaurant nearby, it is nice.Cafe at pool area good for basic food.But if you dont want that no selection.Fantastic balcony on third level,very private.Rooms only cleaned once per week, towels changed only once a week, not satisfactory.Staff very friendly.Pool very good.Easy to get taxis.Taxi people very friendly.Good value spar shop close by.Hotel Shop small,but open late which is useful.Not good value for holiday if you want to leave the complex.Budget should advise people more about this.Island Trip with budget was goo.

Recently got back from a great holiday in Gran Canaria. These bungalows are great for the price. They are a a good size for two people, or two plus 1 child, and have all the necessaries for a cheap self catering holiday. Our room was cleaned and towels changed 3 times in one week, we had a big terrace with sunbeds and table and chairs. Their was ample crockery/pans/cutlery etc for cooking on the 2 hobs, and a fridge was also provided. If you happy eating salads, omelettes, potatoes, pasta, noodles, etc etc then there is no need for a cooker or microwave. The only thing missing was a kettle, but it only took a bit longer to boil water in pan!
The bathroom was clean and had plenty of hot water, the shower was more powerful than my own!
I didn't see one ant or cockroach my whole stay.
The pool was large and looked fab, but I didn't use it prefering to take off up the coast to a fab beach at Anfi near Patalavaca instead.
These apartments are a distance from the nightlife and beaches, but if you are looking for a quiet getaway then look no further... buses are frequent and run late into the night. Alternatively do what we did and hire a car for the week, then you can explore the island properly - go to Puerto Mogan, Anfi, Amadores beach, Cave restaurants in the mountains etc.. all much better than Playa de Ingles or Puerto Rico (what a dump). Our car hire was only just over £100 for the week with RecordGo hire well worth it for not having to hang around for buses with all our beach stuff etc!!
Have Fun and explore the island there is much more to Gran Canaria than the resorts with Macdonalds on the beach......

Have been to vo on several occasions over the last couple of years and think it is a lovely place to stay and very reasonable. we like it
because it is in a lovely area very quiet and peaceful. The rooms are basic but kept very clean and i have never seen a cockroach. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. During our stay in october they had a new night porter who was very pleasant. As it is about 3 kms to the beach they provide you with a free bus pass. Just across the road there is a very good resturant called Vista Bonita who have very friendly and efficient staff. further up there is a very good Chinese resturant. You are right beside a Spar supermarket that stocks everything you will need for your holiday. This is a very quiet area with very little night life but if you need to get to the bars and clubs jump in a taxi for a couple of euros and you are there in 10 mins. If you want a quiet holiday in very peaceful surroundings I would recomend vista oasis to anybody. The view from the balconies at night are amazing.

We stayed at Vista Oasis 13 July to 27 July 2008 2 Adults and 2 Children. The Apartments are basic but clean. Entertainment at night is very poor and the Bar closes at midnight every night (far too early). The bar staff and reception staff are not very friendly. The night porter was obnoxious and rude and he would put anyone off from staying there. The food at the Bar was bland and tasteless and their alcohol prices are exorbitant in comparison to most of the Canaries. On the plus side they have a nice swimming pool but no lifeguard. A couple of dodgy locals there one night eying up the tourists (the tourists had to get rid of them) security non existent there.
