Hotel Oasis
Ranked #4 of 8 Hotels in Mal Pais
Reviewed 9 January 2014

We visited 10 years ago and stayed in one of the bungalows. Loved it then and returned with our child to stay in one of the air conditioned rooms. We loved the bungalow and we loved our air conditioned room! They are attractive, clean, comfortable and quiet. The gardens and pool at the Oasis are picturesqe and relaxing. The location is perfect...a quick walk to the beach and shopping. The owners are delightful. This place is a 10! Cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Any room at the Oasis is a good room. Enjoy.

What gorgeous hotel. We have 2 children and the 2 room bungalow was awesome, it totally fit our needs. The bathroom was new and elegant. The kitchenette made it so easy to feed the children. Everything I needed to prepare snacks and meals for the kids. We were thrilled to be within walking distance to what we needed; good surf, market and stores, restaurants. We spent our entire Christmas holiday there and Marianne and Haim made us feel like family. Watching the sunset at beautiful Mal Pais, Costa Rica - this was the best Christmas ever! I hope Santa is this good to us next year, so we can go back to The Oasis.

Room Tip: The bungalow was our favorite type of room. Very open, great porch with hammock. Surrounding a bea...

I've visited Costa Rica many times since 1991, and the Oasis is my favorite place to stay, by far. The accomodations are comfortable, the owners are friendly, and the rates are reasonable. We are always impressed with how the owners do lots of upkeep and upgrades. This past visit, we were pleased with upgraded bathrooms, expanded pool deck (with pool towels now being offered!), and better security and lighting. The location is perfect as it offers easy access to town without the extreme dust and disco noise associated with downtown Mal Pais. There's an easy path to the beach - 5 minute walk and you're on the surf break. Surf Camp is next door for a yummy meal or a nightcap. We had a group of friends rent the whole place for the holidays and just adored having the whole place with friends for two weeks. We have a 3-person family and one of the cabinas has plenty of room for our family as well as room for my young daughter's friend to have a sleepovers. Marinanne and Haim, the owners, are also super helpful with booking horsebackriding, figuring out ferry/flight schedules, etc. The cleaning staff and gardeners are very friendly too and do a wonderful job. Perfect vacation. Only sad we couldn't stay longer.

Room Tip: I'd recommend the cabinas over the A/C rooms. Both are nice, but we love hearing the howler monk...

My first time here in Costa Rica and staying at the Oasis was so unbelievably perfect. We have a family of 4 and staying in a bungalow was again perfect. The front porch, the tiled floors, the kitchen, bedroom, and from what I was told by my friends who have been coming here for 10 years updated bathroom was so amazing and pretty. The landscaping was gorgeous making it feel like paradise. The Oasis is in walking distance to the town and to the awesome beaches. I hope to come back with my family again and stay here.

This is a beautiful place - on a beautiful playa. We stayed in a bungalow that had recently been remodeled. Very nice bathroom with plenty of hot water for the shower-- something not always available in CR. Very nice grounds surround the property and the staff are very sweet, helpful, and accommodating. The bungalow had a nice fully stocked kitchen, including plenty of dishes and cutlery, 5 gallon bottled water dispenser, blender, tupperware, refrigerator, and stove top. Plenty of fans -- ceiling and floor type -- help out the already well ventilated space. Nice pool - with supply of towels poolside. It is just a few blocks from the more populated Santa Teresa area with all its shops and restaurants. We'll go back - definitely.

The hotel is a true Oasis in the jungle. I spent a wonderful week in their newly remodeled cabinas, which were modern and clean. The Wifi was great all over the property and very fast. The pool was beautiful and very refreshing. And town was close, but not too close. This place gets two thumbs up! Thanks Haim and Marianne.

We have stayed at the Oasis many times and it just keeps getting better. The owners have invested alot of itme and energy to upgrade an already wonderful lodging. The bathrooms have been completely remodeled and are beautifully tiled with glass shower and sinks and soft towels. It feels like the 4 Seasons! The bedrooms have all new mattresses and furniture with a tv in the room. The kitchen now has new stove, counter, dining table and chairs. All new furnishings complete the indoor living. And it is cleaned every day by the friendly staff! On the covered patio where you can relax to the sounds of the jungle in the beautiful landscaped garden, you'll be dining on new comfortable chairs and tables. We never rent a car and find it easy to walk to the beach or town. A combination of location, comfortable lodging that allows you to enjoy nature, and the wonderful owners and staff make this our go to place in Mal Pais.
