    We just returned from Oasis Sens and we had a very nice week. Beach was incredible, topless optional was awesome, and DO NOT MISS the foam party. I did look at the schedule and knew when things were open and closing and it did work well. If I was the boss I would leave the swim up bar open until 6 and the lobby bar open until midnight and change Hippe Chic to a buffet so there was no waiting. We both enjoyed the food the drinks and the people. We did have an air conditioning problem when the drain tube plugged and flooded the bathroom, but I was real impressed with maintenance and housekeeping all was fixed and cleaned up within 15 minutes. Staff was great, food was great We will for sure consider Oasis Sens the next time we go to Cancun. We did not buy a VIP wristband and never needed for anything.

    How was the night life and people there? Compared to Temptations if have ever been or just in general. My wife and I have come to agree that the people you meet make or break a resort as much as anything.

    it has been 8 years since we were at Temptations and there was more night life, but you are correct it is the people you meet that can make or break a trip.

    Thanks for the review. It is a complete 180 from the recent reviews here and on Tripadvisor. Seems like a coin flip as to how things go there. Or it could be a problem of expectations. Whatever the case, glad you had a good time. Oasis was very good for us last year (GOV - That BEACH was fantastic!)), but there were too many potential negatives this year to chose Oasis Sens. We'll see what happens in a few weeks when we go to Golden Parnassus for the first time.

    I'm heading to the Sens on April 7 flying solo for the first time. Mama and I have been to Temptations, and a great deal of other AI's, so I know the resort routine. (towel game, how to get good service, etc.)
    I'm curious how this resort will be for a "single" guy. I'm very social and usually tend to make friends easily, so I've no worries there. Just that hearing about many of the bars closing early, etc. has me concerned it's gonna get lame every night. I guess we'll see.

    Good trip report Chris & Gord ! I truly feel that everyone needs to get their info from our sites like these. Trip Advisor can be off so badly. :aetsch022:
    Glad to hear you had a nice week :) Love, Ang

    Thanks for the review of the resort we are hading there in June I was a bit concerned because I couldn't find much that was positive about the resort. Oh and I don't care about the stairs if they take me to that beautiful beach!

    My wife's wedding ring was stolen from the room. So keep valuables locked up.
