    Lucifer has given a pretty good account of this hotel. There are usually a lot of cool people partying here during the day and a ton of hot girls on spring break. But that is about the only thing good about this hotel.

    They do tend to treat everyone under thirty like crap. Despite what they say online and in the brochures, you will not have access to any of the ala carte restaurants. This has nothing to do with who you book your vacation through. If you have a problem, the staff will pretend not to understand you even if you speak fluent spanish. Yet they will understand a middle aged person's english perfectly.

    I found out the hard way about the bracelet issue and it really destroyed my mood for the rest of the vacation. I hadn't budgeted for this and it felt like paying for sex. What is the point of even going out to the nightclubs if you can't hook up with someone from a different hotel. After this I concentrated on the girls in the hotel itself. This worked out slightly better but I found that even then a lot of the staff will give you a problem if you have a phase 2 band and try to enter phase 1 and vice versa. Although it usually wasn't that difficult to get around these people.

    The buffets look straight out of Fear Factor. Despite 8 days of constant drinking, I managed to lose 15 pounds.

    I just got back from the Oasis a few days ago. Debba9802's pics and account of the hotel is pretty much bang on except for the fact that they have finished painting the exterior. The pics can be viewed here:

    http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=8EaM3DJo4aN1Y

    First off, I will say that the pool area of the hotel is very nice. The rooms however are nothing short of horrendous. There was very little hot water. In fact there was none -- it was luke warm at best and sometimes stone cold. The toilet overflowed as did the bathtub. The service is terrible. Our phone didn't work (the cord was ripped). When a phone tech came to replace it, he stole my cell phone off the table. In addition, the cleaning staff left our room door open one day. Totally ridiculous. Oh, and if you're considering using the "safe" in your room... don't bother. You're better off locking your stuff up in your suitcase as I'm sure the safe can be cracked open with a screwdriver.

    You cannot eat at the "nice" restaurants unless you're staying at the Grand Oasis or have a purple wristband indicating that you're 27 or older. On the topic of wristbands, don't lose yours or you'll be expected to pay $100 USD to replace it. As mentioned, they are anal about wristbands all over the hotel. I found not being able to bring people back to the hotel completely absurd.

    The convenience store in the lobby did not have change most of the time. How difficult is it to go to the bank and get a bunch of different bills so people will be able to break 100 or 200 peso bills?

    I strongly discourage anyone from staying here. Although it is the "party hotel" of Cancun, the hotel itself is a dump. Next time I'm staying at the Riu.

    This is an honest review of this hotel. I have stayed places from days inns to the beverly hills hotel and places in between. This places is not worth your money even if you are looking to party. I was here on spring break of course and the accomadations at the oasis are less than 2 stars. Depending on the room you get they are 1.5 stars at best with most at the 1 star level. The air conditioning in our room didnt work for a few days but was fixed. The bathroom smelled and the toilet looked all stained and dirty. The balconies are covered in paint are not really that nice. The tv's are small and our beds only had a top comforter with a flat sheet and no blanket. There was also standing water in some places which was a hazard. I found the staff to be friendly and the grounds were beautiful with peacocks running around everywhere. The beaches are a bit nicer in other areas. Be forwarned that unless you book the grand oasis (upgraded rooms in a seperate building) then you will not have access to all the restaurants. I would not reccomend this hotel and will not stay here ever again unless i book the grand oasis.

    -Another note on the food: The burgers and dogs were barely edible. We had access to the 3 buffets for bfast, lunch and dinner. We could eat at the sushi bar and sarape al a carte mexican restuarant for lunch and the sarape for dinner.

    Well........ I stayed here from March 9-16 2007 this past spring break! I must say, we must have gotten a good room because our room was wonderful! Newly painted although you couldnt smell it, nice painting on the wall, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, and a nice HUGE fruit tray they brought us after check in! Ocean front room facing the beach, couldnt ask for more. We had full access to all the places to eat, but usually had the buffet, which was good for all meals! Not a 5 star hotel by any means, however, if you are going for a party, this is the hotel to be at! If you are going for a vacation and a getaway, i would stay at another place! All in all, I enjoyed it and will go back, assuming I go back for spring break.

    I just got back from the oasis my room had some problems such as no plug for the bathtub or antenna for the tv and some other thinks. Food in the buffet was not bad at all .You people bitch too much. When I first read all those negative reviews, it got me scared but now once I got back from it I can honestly say that it was very good, staff was good to me. i lost my key once and left it in the room twice they opened my room right away. Always had hot water would stay again for sure.Oh and it don’t matter what room you have you will stay there only for the night.

    The room definetely wasn't worth the 1800.00 bucks. There are much nicer places to stay at in cancun, but if you are looking to party and don't care about the accomadations then this is your place. I'm also a pretty laid back guy so i probably won't stay here again.

    Question.

    Looking to go to Spring Break next March. Will only be 19 then. May just be me and some friends.

    I was in Cancun this past March and stayed at CPC, it was awesome.

    Right now, assuming we can find some people old enough (must be 30 to check in at CPC) I am leaning towards going back to CPC, stay in a timeshare though from Golden Shores, and it will cost us 990. The price for the room and AI is exact and then I figured in 350 for air both ways.

    I have looked at Oasis but the cheapest I can find for that is 1300. Where in the world do people get their deals for under 1000? Also, a concern I have is that I believe I read on Oasis's site that the latest their bar is open is 12....umm I don't plan on going out to the clubs every night because that gets expensive and it's not as fun.

    Those are the reasons I am leaning towards going back to CPC even though it's not a spring breakers resort we have enough people going 6-8 of us and I am hoping to meat a few down there, second week of March. I figure at least one of the bars at CPC is open until 1 and then if we want to we can buy some beer off the resort and carry on the party since we would be in a timeshare room, that is plenty big.

    So yeah, sorry for the long ass post but if anyone can help me out with the price at Oasis that would be great. Where in the world do you go for the deals? I've been to google and I clicked on about every freakin site and the cheapest thing I come up with is 1300. Forget that.

    Welcome aboard! Spring break, eh? You might want to post in the Breakers Forum and say hello. They seem to be on top of the deals, and you can coordinate your trip so you can hang with them in one of CancunCare's parties:

    Well not only will I post the Bad, but I will also post the good
    Check in was fast for us. We arrived at 5pm, it was the day After Dean so, and of course the place would be empty.
    The sliding door did not work properly, but I was cool with it.
    My room had A/C and it worked all of my stay. My brothers room however also had A/C but it would only get as cold as 74 degrees or so. His floors were always moist due to that.
    The Food was very good. I liked every restaurant. I was at the Oasis not the GRAND OASIS, so we could not eat at two restaurants. Big Deal.
    The first night it rained, both of our rooms were flooded. We called and they came to clean up. The second time it rained, again the rooms were flooded with water and I don’t mean a little wet. The second time it happened at night during our sleep, we did not reported it because it was time to check out, so I did not make a big deal out of it.
    My tub was about 90% clogged. The water would take forever to drain. I called the reception and they said they would send someone up. That never happened. About after three calls and two hours later I went down. The guy at the reception said “I already called Maintenance” and he looked at me with that face of “what do you want me to do now”? I dealt with it for the rest of our stay. I managed to unclog it a bit more myself.
    If I had to rate this hotel from 1-10 I would give it a 5. Because not all rooms are bad (I think) currently they are remodeling Phase 1. During my stay, all the people from Phase 1 were moved to Phase 2. The crowd is awesome, especially if you are single. This is a cool party hotel. The food is good and best of all it was cheap to stay there. If you have kids and are looking for a Kids Club, you will not find one. However, they recently became part of the Royal Holiday Club. The Grand Oasis at least, and they have plans to start making this a more family oriented place. And like I said, they are renovating the rooms. However, they need to work on their reception staff. I left my camera there after checking out. When I called from the airport, they said they did not have it. After fighting with them, it turns out they found it.
    Like I said, you get what you pay for. I would not go there again unless it was the Grand Oasis. If I had free rooms, I would go there again...lol...
