“Excellant value and fantastic accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed at this hotel in may for a 5 night mini break.Our accommodation was a one bedroomed apartment overlooking the children's pool.The apt. was very spacious and clean,although the bathroom was slightly dated and as it did not have a window it was dark.Having both an upstairs and downstairs balcony was lovely.Overall the hotel facilities were well maintained and kept extremely clean by hotel staff.The one main restaurant served a good hot buffet in the evening and it was lovely sitting outside over looking pool.Lunch was served in the small pool bar area which did busy at start of lunch service so we found it better to go at about 1.30pm to miss the queue.The hotel is about a 20-25minute walk to the seafront,fine on way there but a bit of a steep return walk but the taxi is only about 5euros one way.My 9year old daughter enjoyed the nightly children's disco. Would use this hotel again for mini break and would recommend a private transfer from hotel as the shuttle bus took over an hour with all other hotel drops.My only other negative point is re the full size mechanical dancing monkeys in the reception area!!!!!

We went back to Gran Oasis after visiting there 6 years ago when it was self catering only. It was a beautiful hotel then and it is amazing now. It has doubled in size, has 2 extra pools, amazing restaurant, amazing apartments and staff that just can't do enough for you!! Where else will you get an all inclusive resort where you have your own mini villa??? We have two young children 5 and almost 2 so knew about the stairs that everyone talks about in the apartment. I emailed the resort the week before arriving asking for a stair gate and sure enough it was there on arrival. Admittedly there a lot of stairs however there are slopes everywhere so no need to use stairs if you have buggys. The food is fine, all the people that write negative comments on here I think are people that just like to moan. There is always varied food, something for everyone and it is always hot unless you want your food to burn your mouth. They really think about young children too and have a toddler menu on veranda with plastic plates and cutlery. The staff are extremely attentive and work so hard. Points to note are sangria on tap at lunch at pool bar which we only noticed on last day and also buffet lunch at snack bar so you don't have to leave the pool if you don't want too. The Thursday night summer party is amazing!! Champagne and mojitos waitered service to you all night, not to be missed. If you do day trips to aqua land and jungle park, get taxi's. so cheap and not worth walk to princess devil hotel in the heat. Our kids loved this place as did we and we will go back. First time I have been to hotel rated 4* abroad and would actually say its worthy of it!!!

We have just returned from Gran Oasis Resort and quite honestly say the hotel was great, the accommodation was lovely but most of all, the staff made the holiday, Luis and his team in the resturant, tessa and colleagues (sorry forgotten names) in reception, Renate and the animation team, bar staff, cleaners etc were all incredible and each one of you really made our holiday special! Staff would take five minutes each day just to go out of their way to speak with you and help with our very limited Spanish. We stayed in suite Uno Tres Ocho and it was truly beautiful. We were fortunate and stayed during the week when there was a special pool party to potentially launch a new act in the entertainment, the General Manager was their on the evening and he also took time out to spend speaking with us, I have been on really good holidays but can honestly say I have never left a holiday with a lasting impression of so many staff. Thank You! Ignore the reviews about people complaining about the food, the food was top notch and always catered for all tastes. If you get the chance to see Top Hat and Heels I would definitely recommend seeing it, it was fantastic!! I am looking forward to my return visit next time.

Room Tip: Would recommend booking a suite, they are lovely, there was only three of us on this occasion howeve...

Just returned from the Gran Oasis Resort having travelled with my wife, daughter aged 3 and son 11 and stayed for 10 nights. The holiday was booked very last minute with First Choice and I was absolutely delighted with the quality of the Gran Oasis after we arrived and checked in.

On our arrival getting there about 9.45pm the receptionist arranged for us to get a late meal and feed the kids at the restaurant then afterwards booked us in! This was greatly appreciated and helped get the holiday to a great start.

Upon entering the apartments for the first time I was genuinely impressed with the quality of the apartments. I even told the kids to stay still for 5 mins while I got photographs of the room before they got their hands on it :-)

After a nights sleep we then got off to breakfast and headed for the pool? That was the first problem? Trying to get a decent spot close to pool so you can keep close to kids who were magnetised to the pool as soon as they laid eyes on it! In the end I had to resort to early AM wake ups just to bag a couple of decent sunbeds? But it had to be done as its obvious some folks just bag a bed just for the sake of it and don't use them all day without consideration for families or parents who would like to be close to hand to helping their wee ones about the pool.

Special appreciation however must go to all the staff who work at the Gran Oasis. To their credit they work very hard and keep the appearance of the resort in top shape but you wonder why some folks can't be bothered finding a bin to dispose of their rubbish?

Aplauso Aplauso Aplauso to the Animation team of Tina, Renata and Enzo!! You were fantastic and the magnificent pool party right on our last night was superb and featured Top Hat and Heels one of the islands greatest drag acts. It was a fabulous night and rounded of our holiday quite nicely. This animation team are a credit to the hotel and hopefully the management will keep them for a long time!

Food was great and I had no issues finding something to eat. Always plenty available and sometimes happy to wait a couple of minutes for the hot dish to be grilled and served up fresh. I have to confess though the hot dogs at the poolside bar was my guilty pleasure for a mid-afternoon snack!

All in all the Gran Oasis was a great resort to stay in and both my kids had a ball and a lot of fun. We also went to Aqualand and went to town a couple of times but the Gran Oasis had everything you needed it was all good for the younger ones. Also the Thomas Cook Kids Club was based there & for a small fee we dropped our daughter for some sessions even although we went with FC and she was well looked after by them.

I never had any issues with the service at Gran Oasis and I certainly would love to go back next year :-) I will keep watching out for you Gran Oasis so keep up the good work and 'Be Happy'. We stayed in room 189 for 10 nights which was really nice and quite, towards the bottom level of the complex, with good easy access and no stairs.

We have been to the gran oasis 3 times every thing is great but this time round the food was bland, boring, not cooked properly and not to the same standards it has been previously, this has now put us in a position to look for some where different next year

Currently staying here . Lovely room 186. Reception staff excellent nothing a problem danny and tessa. Waiters and bar staff super and heads of restaurant are super, they r 2 lovely managers. All staff at this hotel are happy great with the kids and woek very hard. The cleaner's keep the place spotless and the food is excellent. Only grumble is the animation and professional shows not up to standard of such a fantastic hotel.

Recently returned from a family holiday in Gran oasis resort, most impressive was the quality and care shown towards customers from ALL staff in the hotel from reception, to the dining room welcome every day, including all animation teams especially katie, zoe, sarah Thomas Cook Reps, who were above and beyond call of duty after my mother was urgently admitted to hospital in Las americas, staff even gave me fruit to take in ( we were on an all inc basis) then on return back to the hotel all greeted her like along lost relative with hugs and kisses, even from the lifeguard who helped her into the ambulance to the guy who brought the car up to her room, (which made her day).

Food was lovely but after 2 weeks all inc. does get repetitive but quality excellent . no rude people pushing you out of the way to get to their toast! very civilised and relaxed.

Entertainment on an evening not my cup of tea but tribute bands were really good some very bad ie Neil Diamond but comedy value priceless think he got paid off! Would have liked an area for adults with proper glasses, not plastic cups gin n tonic not the same out of plastic but understand at poolside health and safety issues.

Overall would recommend this hotel good value for money staff, first class weather perfect!

Accommodation everthing you need and very clean BUT lots of steps to our accommodation 86 steps up we didint mind but hard for elderly relatives. A ramp around the complex available for cases etc.

Room Tip: any mobility issues, i would advise to book a room prior to going near reception as not...
