Oasis Hotel Bungalows Rhodes
Ranked #8 of 18 Hotels in Afandou
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We loved this place. Everyone was so friendly and when we went is was not too busy so there were always beds available at the pool. Our bungalow opened up onto the pool which was lovely and we had a nice little patio.The flowers and fruit trees everywhere were beautiful and really well kept. Our room was quite small but it had an interconnecting door to the room our teenagers were in and their room was massive. We had a shower and they had a bath with a hand held shower attachment so they came into our room to shower. Air conditioning was fantastic.Contrary to lots of the guests staying we loved the food and the beer and wine. My boys like their meat and there was plenty of it. I can see if you have a diet of fast food you would hate it but we loved the authentic home cooking. We loved the staff, Zoe who did breakfast and lunch and Stamos the barman who was a whizz at making cocktails which you did have to pay for but they were only 3.80 euros. Nice walk up to Afandou one evening to watch the football and the beer was only 2 euros for a pint. Hired a car which was only 40 euros and took the boys to Falaraki for the evening or rather Falatacky.Yuk! They got a cab back in the wee hours which was 12 euros. Next day left the boys in bed and went to the Valley of the butterflies. Bit of a con really as they are moths and abundant but not exciting. Lovely walk through the valley tho. We hired scooters another day for 25 euros which the boys loved, it was like driving through a hot hairdryer. Got thre bus to Rhodes town one day and Lindos another day. Everytime we went out we couldn't wait to get back to our little Oasis. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that opens onto the pool.

A lovely resort, ideal for families, and those with young children, and any couples who prefer a quieter time away from constant loud music or corny entertainment. Very peaceful and very relaxing. Good variety of food at a good quality. Excellent swimming pool, sunbeds and lounging areas. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Beach was about a 10 minute walk after having crossed a main road. Nearest supermarket about 3 minutes walks up the road from the hotel and has anything you might need. We went as a family of 6 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Having read the reviews before booking, I as most have done given the benefit of doubt, however this is a very honest and accurate review. Firstly the pool is nowhere near the size that's advertised, its very small with only 6 sun beds around the top of it. (Been here for two weeks and regardless of how early I come, there are always towels on them)
The other sun beds are on a grass patch at the side, they are nice enough to relax, but not much privacy.
The rooms are very clean, with a tv ( which only has one English channel and crackles a lot) rooms cleaned daily by nice friendly women. Only problem is with the shower it does not stay on the wall u have to hold it on ur hand while showering.
Now onto the food well what can I say, its bland, cold and there is not much choice. Very disappointed when I complained about cold food was just told well its in hit plate, I pointed out again that the food was cold and never got any more response. I was not the only guest who complained about the cold food. Maybe the management would take this on board and improve it!!!
Apart from the food side of things the rooms are nice albeit a bite dated, but kept clean and fresh towels daily.
The oasis is a bit out of the way Afandou centre is €5-7 faliraki is €10 away, faliraki is a lovely place with nice bars and restaurants, buses to Rhodes and lindos u get from outside apartments but they r very busy.
The beach is a ten min walk and it's lovely and quiet.
Overall I had a relaxing time.

Just arrived back in UK from a great 2 week holiday at Oasis Apartments. We've had a great time there and definitely would return.

Georgios, his parents and all his staff have made us all feel very welcome. As noted in previous reviews, they can't do enough of you. The kids have been treated likes princes and princesses and didn't want to come home.

Great shaded areas around the pool and complex and lovely places to sit and enjoy a drink like the tree house or under the canopy of the orange trees next to the pool. The grounds are covered in fruit trees, orange, olive, lime, banana, fig??? so plenty of natural shade.

The food was excellent. Choice of salads and hot foods with plenty of greek dishes you'll recognise and some you won't.

I'm surprised at the negative reviews and would recommend wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: The family rooms are very spacious.

General -
We have just returned from a week at the Oasis and would like to give you a fair and unbiased view of the hotel and its facililties. When the bus dropped us in front of the hotel, situated right on a busy main road with very few shops and restaurants nearby, we were concerned that we might have made a big mistake in booking this hotel. The reception area did not help to dispel our fears being dated and smelling of smoke. And the rooms were no better. Basic is the best word to describe them, with ensuite bathrooms which are so old fashioned they are almost trendy. (I haven't seen a lime green bathroom suite in years). It had to get better.
Fortunately, the place grows on you. It's main strength is the friendliness of the staff, as others have reported. Nothing is too much trouble and they will go out of their way to accommodate you and to make you feel welcome.
Pool and Recreational Facilities - Another plus is the pool area. Whilst the wooden tables and chairs around the pool are again basic beyond words, the area is attractively set out with a small but pretty pool area surrounded by colourful flowers and tall palm trees. There is a medium-sized grass area where the sunloungers are laid out, and whilst there are never quite enough to go round everyone, we always managed to find a couple, even if we arrived in the afternoon. Beyond this area there is a good sized grassed football pitch which is regularly watered and a basketball hoop. This proved to be a huge bonus for our 16 year old son who quickly made friends with some of the other teenage lads and disappeared for hours on end to play football (mainly in the evening due to the extreme heat we had whilst we were there) or to play in the pool. In fact, there were lots of older children (12 +) around, which, having kids of 12, 16 and 18 was an unexpected plus. As there were no organised activities for younger children, there were very few little ones there, although there were a few families with pre-school children. Whilst there is a small kiddies section to the pool, there are only a few metal poles inbetween this and the main pool. This was quite deep in most parts and being only 5ft 4" I could only stand in less than half of the pool. If you are going with non-swimmers, you will need to be extra vigilant, as there is a diving board at one end and no lifeguard.
Location - The location of the hotel was good and bad. Good because there was a bus stop directly outside with buses travelling to Tsambika and Lindos (pretty whitewashed village) in one direction and to Faliraki and Rhodes Town in the other. The latter ran every 1.5 hours approx and, given the Greeks' reputation for being quite laid back, were fairly on time. Faliraki has a great beach with safe, shallow sand, a lifeguard station and plenty of watersports. We can especially recommend the banana boat safari which lasts between 45-60 mins and takes you round some of the neighbouring coves , including a visit to a cave in the cliffs, but includes all the fun of the shorter rides at a cost of 25 Euros per adult and 15 Euros per child. But if you are looking for a little culture and a step back in time, a visit to Old Rhodes Town is a MUST. The place is completely enchanting with little bazaar like shops lining the old cobbled streets within the walls of the town. And every now and then you get a glimpse down a little side street into the harbour. There is a lovely little sandy beach just adjacent to the town walls where people were bathing in the cool clear water, despite the No Swimming signs. The return trip cost us 8 Euros 80 on the bus for 2 adults. A fantastic day out.
If you wanted to stay more local, Afandou beach is only a 10 minute walk away and has a little beach cafe and parasols and sunloungers to hire at the nearest point to the hotel. If you like uncrowded and unspoilt this is the beach for you.
The only downside to the location was the fact that it was a 15 minute walk into the village of Afandou with its bars and shops which are situated at the top of a slight hill. As temperatures reached 43 degrees whilst we were there, walking there was quite sapping and not something I would recommend for the very young or very old. However, you can get a taxi there for 5 Euros, if you don't fancy the exercise.
Food - If you are not a fussy eater, the food is perfectly acceptable. Lots of pasta dishes, aubergines in everything and meat and fish available every day with plenty of fresh salad morning, noon and night. After a week, though, I would suggest that you may find this a little limiting and may want to explore the local tavernas by then. Think carefully before you book All inclusive if you like a lot of variety! The coffee tasted powdery to me and this is only available at breakfast and between 4.30 and 5.30pm when afternoon tea is served at the pool bar. Although this sounds quite prescriptive, we found it an enjoyable ritual and started looking forward to our 4.30 treat.
All in all - If you are looking for a good value holiday on a budget, we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. However, if you like a little luxury and enjoy state of the art facilities and decor, stay away - this is not the place for you. Whilst we have stayed in nicer hotels, this must have been the best value week abroad we have ever had and felt very happy that we had chosen Oasis.

Room Tip: 3rd bed in the triple room was a rather uncomfortable camp bed. Better suited for smaller children.

We really loved the food,lots of salads,always fresh fish & meat,vegetables & fruit and NO upset tummys. We hired a quad bike for 4 days at 105euros which was brilliant to get around. It was only a small engine but it got us to some beautiful bays(Antony Quinn) and we did have a laugh! The beach is a 10minute walk away but stretches for miles it was great not to be overcrowded and there are two bars,one up one end and one up the other which we always had and ice coffee in the mornings! I think it depends what you want from a holiday,we had a total chill out,we wernt actually bothered about no entertainment as we love each others company. George was really helpful on anything asked,Steven behind the bar was a good laugh and Zoe in the restuarant very friendly and asked if we could eat a little earlier on the day of departure. We havnt been to Greece for 6years as we were worried about it being too expensive,but we didnt overspend,we had all the meals and if we went to the beach we asked for a packed lunch(free) which was plentiful. You have to give it to these people they work really hard some have two or three jobs to survive and we would return here as we came home totally relaxed and rested which we needed to do! THANK YOU EVERYBODY AT THE OASIS! see you next time oh and veto can i have my flipflop back when we next see you lol!

Have just returned from a two week stay at this hotel and when the other reviews say dont believe the bad reports then forget that cos thats what we did, the staff are great but that is where it ends if you read on I will tell you absolutely the truth and then you can decide.
We arrived off the bus at 1 o clock in the afternoon and just didnt know where the reception was, once found, no problem straight to the room through lime trees, banana trees, pear trees, naturally hording the inevitable cricket/s, which incidentally the noise from them was continuous 24 hours a day!!, the room is adequate with beds virtually on the floor, a fridge and an antiquated tv which caters more for the Germans then the English and yes the DvD does work, the bathroom is very old fashioned we had to kneel in the bath with a hand held shower to get showered. Be careful in the rooms have ants so maybe take some powder with you!. The grounds were a bit overgrown, they did cut them back occasionally but not very well and mossys have a field day with you if your not careful. The pool was always clean so no problems there, the pool bar is staffed by a lovely young girl serving soft drinks, lager and wine, at 4:30 there is a snack which is made up of small spinich pasties, small feta cheese pasties or cut up pieces of cold PIzza and buscuits, this is the only hour you can get free coffee or tea when all inclusive (except for at breakfast time in the restaurant) Breakfast is 8 - 10 consisting of one day boiled eggs, next day chopped ommellette, along with cheese slices or spam slices, there is a toaster but be careful it tends to come out solid! there is some cereals as well, Lunch 1 - 2 here there is a tray with a pasta basted something, then next tray a vegitarian based aubergine or pie sort of thing, then either a tray of chips (usually cold) or potatoes or very runny mash!, there were some vegatables but my girl tried some carrots and couldnt cut through them!!, finally a tray of meat either chicken or pork most of the time you couldnt tell the difference!, there was a salad section always feta cheese salad where everyone dived in so it soon became a bit of a mush, and a sweet usually jelly and icecream or a bit of cake, evening meal was just made up of the same as the lunch time, so no variety really, most of the people ate out even though they were all inclusive, easting out was nice but the nearest place is afandou and a taxi ride is 5 euros there and 5 back so add 10 euros to you meal bill, its 10 euros to get into Falaraki and 10 Back, so it does make eating out expensive, (we spent about an extra 1000 euros eating out including the taxis) (YES WE WERE ALL INCLUSIVE!) all in all if you like your grub you wont like this place. The Bar is opened at about 6:30pm and only near the reception which is ok but they miss out on letting people sit around the pool on an evening, it wasnt lit up round this on a night but could be cos the staff held a birthday party for one of the staff one night and lit it all up for that night and it looked tremendous, incidentally none of the residents were invited!! the bar is manned by Stammoss, he is great, a super guy very friendly, serving watered down lager, soft drinks and wine for all inclusive until 11 then you pay, alternatively you can pay about 2.5 euros for an ouzo and lemonade which is of good measure, the named brand spirits are dearer We hired a scooter 125 euros for 7 days which got us all over going to some super beaches Tsampika and Agathi beaches being the best, two sun beds and a parasol 8 Euros and there are beach bars which do great food very reasonably priced.
If you go to the Oasis dont expect good food, the entertainment is the dog (Vito) and expect to have to use taxis to get about, take plent of mosquito stuff and expext to eat out!!
Will we be going back, I think you know the answer to this most definately not
