Parador Oasis
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in San German
Reviewed 20 January 2013

The recent reviews with top ratings must have come from people who stayed at a different hotel... First, the good things - the location is wonderful, right in the old town area and a block from one of the town squares. The entrance is charming, in an old-fashioned way. The pool in the central courtyard is tiled, and pretty, however, the ceramic owl sitting on the edge did little to keep the pigeons away from the pool - I should have taken a picture of the row of pigeons sitting next to the owl, but you get the idea. I didn't mind the eclectic artwork, or the lack of elevator. I expected old fashioned, and even funky. What we got was disheveled, dirty, and a building in need of major repair, upgrade, and renovation. The carpet in the hall and our room was worn, torn, dirty, and loose. Towels my husband called 12-thread count, a toilet he named Tommy the Talking Toilet due to the noise it made when flushed that went on for about 90 seconds. An extension cord extended down from the suspended ceiling to plug in a light fixture. A towel bar made of PVC pipe with the printing on it. Bug powder lying in the corners of the room - which at least meant no bugs. Plastic covered, uncomfortable mattress. And the noise - not really a fault of the condition of hotel itself, but a result of old fashioned panel-crank-type windows and thin walls - loud cars with louder stereos driving by until well after midnight on Friday night, garbage trucks starting about 6 a.m., many roosters crowing all night as roosters do, inharmonic church bells starting about 6:30. We were told there was a continental breakfast but when we came downstairs about 8 a.m., there was nothing to be seen, and the front desk clerk was on the phone. We really did want to like this place. There's a new resident manager who introduced herself and really wants to make it better - but sadly, I think without a significant infusion of cash there isn't a lot anyone can do.

Excellent hotel. Being in this hotel and is still a great place to stay. Strongly recommend this hotel. The personnel is very friendly and it has very good surroundings. Many historical places to visit. Also close to the best beaches of the area.

Room Tip: Preferably stay on the second floor.

I'm a Puerto Rico local but I was doing a bit of business in San Germán, so I took a shot in the dark and decided to stay at this hotel without knowing much about it, other than its location. It's very clean, with helpful staff, ample parking space and a bit of everything. Bear in mind, San German is the third oldest city in the United States and so are most of its buildings, so yes, they look antique but they're modern on the inside. I highly recommend this place.

I really had a good experience. The food was great. We danced all night al the Hotel's Club, then we hit the pool at 2 o'clock in the morning since the pool was open 24 hours a day. The staff is very polite. They have done a great job in renovating the whole place. I was here four years ago and there is a huge difference. If you are ever in town, stay here.

Room Tip: Choose a room with pool view.

I had my reservations when I was first recommended to stay here based on past previews, but I have to say it was the best decision ever!
For starters the service was first class all the way! They sincerely appreciated our business and treated us as such. They make you feel as if your more than a guest, your family when your there. The food was superb! Much better than I expected, and I'm a very finiky eater! The area surrounding it is rich and beautiful in history and culture! I would highly recommend this gem! It is not as well known hence less expensive and easier to book.
