Oxygen was just not the place for us. After travelling in Costa Rica for 10 days, we arrived at Oxygen Jungle Villas. I think I had high expectations from the website and all of the great experiences I had on my trip previous to Oxygen.
Upon arrival we were shown our villa. Upon first entering it felt really cold. This is probably because the staff is wearing jeans and black t-shirts in the hot Costa Rican climate. We turned off the a/c and at that time I noticed a glade plug in. I unplugged it because of sensitivities to the chemical fragrence. Soon we realized that the glade plug in was there because the villa had a musty smell. We then turned on the dehumidifier to see if that would help. It did not.
The dinner menu is surprise, and I appreciate more choice. We ended up doing a lot of driving up and down the hill to go into Dominical to eat at the local places. I loved the Thai/Indian place cocount ginger, Morgan's Park, and the restruaunt at Cuna De Angel, just past Tikki Villas, the original Bali Style establishment in Uvita.
I did not feel that Oxygen was a great value for Costa Rica. I stayed at three other establishments, and all were less money, same level of service, and included breakfast.
As far as the cleanliness goes, the place was clean, but the only seats in our villa besides the bed was a couch with mold growing on the cusion.
We will not be returning to Oxygen on our next trip. The staff was great, but the downsides to my experience all outweigh the service.
