The Oasis hotel has several cute little huts with refrigerator and small kitchenette, veranda plus dining area and hammock. The whole complex is absolutely quiet and set in between palmtrees, has a pretty and relaxing pool area equipped with comfy sun loungers.

We stayed for a week in April. Hotel is quiet, small, with a nice pool and beautifully maintained gardens. We stayed in one of the bungalows, which are very well appointed. Cable TV (not that we watched much), Wi-Fi all worked well. Also has a drinking water dispenser, which was so needed, and meant we didn't have to carry it...

Hotel Oasis is a great spot. Close enough for a five minute walk into town, yet just far enough away that you hear more monkeys than motorcycles. Jessica and the staff were great. My wife and I stayed in one of the bungalows which was perfect for us. No AC, but the fans and blinds work great for that afternoon...

Jessica and the friendly staff provided outstanding service, going out of their way to ensure clean comfortable accommodations, answer our many questions, book excursions and recommend anything that might make our time in Costa Rica memorable. The hotel is about a third of a mile south of Santa Teresa--an easy stroll--which works out perfectly when it comes to noise and...

We stayed at Oasis for 10 nights - 8 in a bungalow and 2 in a studio. The units are very well equipped for cooking your own meals, which we did frequently. Everything you need for provisions can be purchased at Ronny #1, about a 20 minute walk along the beach, or 10 minutes on the road. The Studios have...

We rented one of the studios for a week. It had plenty of room for two, a comfortable bed, good size bathroom with a walk in shower and good AC.
