Bungalows Vista Oasis Apartments
Ranked #83 of 218 Hotels in Maspalomas
Reviewed 6 February 2011

We have just returned from a bargain week here. This was a budget stay, and actually it was as good if not better than we expected. People who book the Vista Oasis and expect Lopesan Spa resort are deluded quite frankly.
There is nothing wrong with this little gem. Our room was absolutely spotless (cleaned daily) and it was well appointed; kettle (on request), two ring stove and pots/crockery. There is also a decent sized electronic safe, which is free to use in the room.
Thankfully for us it is out of the main bits of Maspalomas(which in our opinion are a bit trashy), secluded and quiet and safe; it was a very pleasant walk into Faro de Maspalomas (good upmarket shops and restaurants) and an easy stroll to Meloneras too.
It is in Sonnenland which is uphill, but nothing too strenuous and allows you to walk off all of your indulgences. We walked into Faro every day, got the bus out to Rico and Puerto Mogan (both great services) a few times; though if you're not as keen on a wander, its €3.50 for a cab to the bus station.
The staff in the apartments are very nice,friendly and helpful, and we encountered no issues at all; they were happy to converse in English or our fairly minimal Spanish.
Overall, this is a fab wee place for the budget traveller - we much prefer to spend our cash on shopping and good food. The stripey Poo Cat was also lovely, and we fed her every day!

we did this holiday on the cheap and our expectations were not too high after reading some of the reviews. However, it provided everything we wanted which was a clean, quiet room. It was very cheap so you cannot expect 5 star quality but we had no real complaints. We booked self catering (tried the buffet menu one night - it wasn't very good but it was only 8 euros!!). There is no oven, grill or toaster so, be warned, you won't be hosting dinner parties. We found a couple of good restaurants within a few hundred yards (Vista Bonita & Bamboo Gardens Chinese although there were others we did not try) and a good sized Spar supermarket 200 yards away. It is a half hour walk to the beach (free bus service 3 times a day) and that end of Maspalomas is very quiet although obviously we were well out of season. Pool area was clean and quiet and another good point is that the hotel is laid out in such a way that you have nobody above or below your room. Initial problems of no kettle and no towels were sorted quickly and, yes, you do have to pay for the telly but for 10 euros you get Sky Sports, BBC1 amongst others and one channel which will have you hiding the remote if you have kids (be warned!!!! lol)

What can you say ... Nothing to hide ... Hotel description says it all ... Quiet and away from the beach . If you do your home work before you book then you wouldn't be disappointed ... It is cheap and cheerful .. If you want upmarket then you need to pay upmarket prices ... 4 euros for a taxi to playa del ingles and a free bus to beach. Not a all inclusive hotel for that you need to pay more... But a pleasant stay and I must say the yumbo centre is the place for new years eve . Lisa Durham

Booked a week ALL-INCLUSIVE at the Vista Oasis for only £220 via Fleetway Travel!!!!
The hotel is basic but great value for money. The food is mainly a buffet format, and we found something we liked in the selection on most days. I'm really keen on the all-inc format as to buy 1/2 lager I think was 2.5Euros....I'm not a big drinker but saved a fortune! Went with wife & 3 daughters so the all-inc stops me being asked for money 24x7.

The hotel location is rather out of it, but if you just want to relax by pool, who cares. The beach was about 30mins walk and a taxi back about 4Euro.

What the hotel does lack is entertainment - we did have Karaoke for 2 hrs, but that was it. After dinner, there isn't a comfortable area to retire to chat , digest and relax. Just sitting around the dinning tables isn't very exciting.

Rooms-were clean and basic. English TV was a tenner a week. I found this essential, as this WAS my entertainment!

For what we paid, I can't fault the Vista. There will always be moaners who expect top quality when paying very little.

Overall - I enjoyed my holiday and feel it represented good value.

Do NOT under any circumstances stay at this resort, I really cant believe some of the more decent reviews on this hell hole. The staff are very rude, when we arived our room was not ready and luckily we do not speak spanish, and the woman on reception cant speak a word of english, so we were told (by the manager Paco) to sit in reception and we were left there for 45 mins and was'nt even offered a glass of cold water as the temp was soaring, eventually we got to our room which very spacious and clean and adequate, it was only then we realised that we have to pay to watch TV and pay to use the safe, abit appaling when channels in Spain are free to begin with.

Food is appaling from Breakfast right up untill dinner, same crap every day, sorry about the language.

Absolutley nothing to do in Sonneland where this Hotel is situated, although the resort provides a shuttle service the timings for these are so poor its not worth even enquiring about.

The nearest place with a bit of life is Kasbah (playa de ingles) again this will require taxis there and back (10 to 15 euros daily), any savings made to book this place will be lost in taxis, so be warned.

Rooms and towels were changed every three days, disgusting.

Also you will be required to pay a fee for late check out if needed.

Other venues close enough to walk are holiday world, great for kids, and the Faro shopping centre, with in walking distance however you will how ever need to find the short cuts like we did.

Markets are good for your bargains which again no information is provided by the resort - every Wednesday and Saturday 7am to 1pm, this is near the holiday world.

PS : If you decide to book this you do so at your own risk.

My partner and I have just returned from Oasis apartments, we were there for a week and have to say the apartments were value for money. They were very clean and we were quite surprised at the size of them compared to Greek island apartments they were mega spacious with a huge outdoor space, unfortunately we were in 90 which faced the car park (or a green board blocking the view). Although this was quite private we were woken most mornings at approx 6.30 by either bin men or delivery vans coming up to the entrance.
Sonnenland, as others have said is a strange place, one side of the road is made up of holiday apartments the other side is residential but we hired a car and travelled down to either Playa de Ingles, Las Palomas or one beach down by the hospital which was lovely. If you plan to spend every day by the pool it's fine, but it's a good 45mins walk from the nearest beach.
We found a lovely restaurant called 'Rustic' in Campo International just wonderful food and not over expensive, thought the restaurants in Las Palomas were a bit same'y pizzas etc and couldn't find any tapas bars which was a shame, we did however find a brilliant one in San Fernando which is not far away and worth a visit. We only ate at Oasis on our first night as we were late arriving and must say the pizzas were great, but cannot comment on the other food.
In a nutshell the accommodation was fine, service could have done with being a bit more cheerful apart from the lady who ran the bar at night- she was great and it was her that told us about tapas bars in San Fernando. Sonnenland was just an area with no features at all a very strange place.
Can't say I would want to go back to Oasis, but we were just there for some winter sun and it fit the bill, if we go back to the island I would probably stay at Porto Rico which was lovely.
