The Oasis at Sunset is the more exclusive, sister property of the neighboring Sunset Resort. Oasis guests can also use the facilities at the Sunset.
I would describe The Oasis as an upscale motel, which sounds odd. The rooms were like two-star motel rooms, but the food and service were four/five-star. The staff is really what makes The Oasis great.
Food: The food is exceptional! Okay, breakfast isn’t all that good, but lunch and dinner are superb! Breakfast and lunch are served on the terrace with a beautiful view of the courtyard. The menus are always the same, but I thought there were enough items to choose from. Dinner is also served on the terrace or you can make a reservation for the other restaurant on the property, The Blue Mahoe, which has a different menu. You can also eat at the buffet or any of the restaurants at The Sunset, but you really won’t want to because the food does not compare. The wait staff is very friendly and was constantly filling up your water/coffee/alcoholic beverage of choice. We really enjoyed the mac n’ cheese, veggie pizza, and chef salad at lunch and the snapper and pork loin for dinner. Also, I suggest that you order a Rum Runner.
Rooms: I requested a room in the east wing/block which is closer to the exclusive beach for Oasis guests. Yes, there was much less noise being away from the water park, which is next to the west wing/block. The room was small, clean, and nothing special. The bathroom was very small and there was an opening to the outside hallway in the shower which is a little odd, but you can close it; it’s a shutter-type opening. The beds were firm and I prefer sleeping on a cloud, but I never woke up with any kind of aches, so I can’t complain too much. The air conditioning in the room worked great; almost too well in fact because I had to request an additional blanket to sleep. There was a TV and you can get a key for the safe if you would like to lock anything up. Wifi wasn’t very good in the rooms, so we usually waited until we were in the lobby to use our phones. I think if they had spent some more effort on the rooms in updating them or using more luxurious bedding, they wouldn’t take away from the property so much.
Activities: We used the kayaks and paddle boats at the property. Get to them in the morning because the wind picked up in the afternoons and you can't take them out in the water when it is too windy. The private beach for Oasis guests was quiet and good for a nap. The waitress came around once an hour it seemed, but you don't need more than one drink an hour anyway. The Oasis always had live music during dinner, and it was nice to sit in the lobby after dinner to drink wine and listen to it. You can also go to the sister resort, The Sunset, for some nighttime family entertainment, but it can be crowded over there.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this resort. You will enjoy your vacation and leave happy.
