“amazing upgrades to an already epic place!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

this is our 5th or 6th time back to the Oasis and will most definitely not be our last. the owners Marianne and Haim have put endless amounts of time into this hotel over the past few years. the new rooms look absolutely amazing. the bathrooms are what you would see at the 4 seasons. there is no other place we would stay in the mal pais, santa teressa area. the pool the rooms and the general ambience of oasis is incredible. oasis is the place to be for honey moons, surf trips, family vacation or a day away from busy San Jose. as always everything was great and we will most definitely be back.

Fabulous small boutique hotel, featuring centrally located casitas each with all the amenities.
An immaculate property given constant loving attention an it shows.
Yet a private location just steps from the center of activities.
3 nights was not enough...? Had I known just how nice it was, I would have stayed many more nights. Malpais surf camp is right next door, should you wish to rent a surf board or paddle board.
Oh... Just a 3 min. Walk to beach.
Located within walking distance to the famous bakery and center.

We have been vacationing, every few years, at the Oasis since 2005. Five times so far and we keep coming back! The improvements that Haim and Marianne have made are amazing. Every time we have gone there has been something special added. The deck has expanded the pool area, all the cabins and rooms have brand new beautiful bathrooms, new furniture, and kitchenettes. It is a fantastic value, perfectly located close to the beach, close enough to the action in town, but still secluded enough to be quiet and relaxing. We can't wait to get back!

Room Tip: We loved the far right AC room - it's the most secluded.

My family and I stayed at the Hotel Oasis from December 31, 2013 to January 7, 2014 and we just loved our stay at Hotel Oasis! The owners and staff are friendly, and very helpful. The cabins are clean, spacious and well stocked with pots, pans, cutlery, refrigerator and everything you will need. The hotel is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the beach and the town center. Overall it is great value and we highly recommend that you stay here. We cannot wait to come back!

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...
