Cancun's Oasis Hotel
The Oasis Cancun is a four star hotel situated in the Zona Hotelera just 25 minutes from the International airport. It offers a half-mile stretch of beach and a 450-yard long pool, one of the largest in Cancun. The hotel consists of four buildings in total, two of which are used for the 580 guest rooms. Moderately decorated using tropical colours, the rooms are spacious and have a contemporary theme.
There are five restaurants that serve a range of food from hamburgers to authentic Mexican cuisine. Of course, no Caribbean resort would be complete without a swim-up bar and here you will find three along the length of the pool. A children's club organizes supervised activities for kids leaving parents free to enjoy the various activities and local shopping.
Four malls, an 18-hole golf course and the famous Ruinas del Rey (Mayan ruins) are all within easy reach of the hotel. With tennis courts, golfing and a huge variety of water sports there is always something for more active holiday makers to do. A hot tub, sauna and beauty salon offering massages are available to help you relax after a hard day's activities and sunbathing.
Oasis Cancun has proven popular with tourists between the ages of 20-30 and considering the weekly foam party, it's not difficult to understand why. The hotel offers live entertainment in the form of shows and themed parties every night of the week. It also has a club called the Up & Down disco, which is responsible for the foam party, but for those who want to party late into the night, downtown Cancun is the place to go.
All-inclusive packages are available which entitles guests to use the facilities of the other four Oasis hotels in the area, although certain restrictions may apply at the Grand Oasis. Couples on honeymoon may be offered a free upgrade on their accommodation, a bottle of champagne and one night free accommodation if they return on their first anniversary.
All rooms come with a balcony overlooking the ocean, the lagoon, or the gardens surrounding the hotel. They also include a mini-bar, cable TV and air conditioning. Single rooms cost from $120 per night and doubles go from $197.
