We really enjoyed our 4 night stay in Mal Pais at Oasis. The bungalow was a great space for my husband and I to enjoy some time away, and the pool was a great place to cool off. We also thought the location of Oasis was perfect- really close to a beach with chairs and a restaurant, as well as...

Oasis was a great choice. Close to all major amenities in MP/ST. Excellent value as well. Nice pool area and close to beach.adequate kitchen facilities which we barely used. Place was an oasis in a very dusty MalPais.

We stayed here eight nights in February with our 9 month baby and we had a wonderful time! It's a small place with beautiful surroundings, tranquil pool area and lovely bungalows and studios.

This place is a gem. Right on the edge of the Mal Pais main drag but just so relaxing. Lovely villas, great pool and the manager / staff are lovely. Woken up by howler monkeys which was sort of unique! You turn off the road and it's a really quiet peaceful place to just de-stress!

My family stayed here in November and had a wonderful time. The bungalow was the perfect size for us. Our kids (8 and 9 yrs old) slept out in the living area and my wife and I had the bedroom. The bungalows are very nice, but more like "glamping" than a posh hotel room. That's actually what liked about it....

A great place to spend your time in the Mal Pais area (playa Carmel, Santa Teresa etc). Guillermo is an amazing host and made us feel very welcome and on hand at all hours to answer questions and make recommendations. The hotel is well situated, close to the beach but thankfully away from the hustle and bustle of the Main...
