    as I responded in a different part of these forums, I would not stay at the Grand Oasis again, in my life. it took them 3 hours to find us a room, and if we had known why beforehand, we would have run to the nearest hotel there. their card keys were not working, so we saw many people coming to the check-in place, asking for a different room. that shoudl have been it. when we finally got our room, they could not tell us exactly where it was located!! the people that work there did not help us at all to get to our room, and our luggage arrived three hours later!! and only after we complained many times to the concierge.
    first thing we notice, the room is hot and humid. SECOND WARNING. the A/C was not working. we called the concierge again, and they sort of laughed at us, telling us that it was a hotel-wide problem, and that it would be resolved in less than 30 minutes.
    so we went to dinner, and stayed a couple of hours walking around the hotel, getting to know it better.
    we got back to our room around 1 AM, and the A/C was still not working. they said they were still working on it. so we had to sleep with our windows open, and the A/C on, in the hopes that it would work.
    it NEVER did.

    How do you ensure you don't get put it phase one (thats the worst building, right??) My friend and I are both 24 years old, been out of college for 3 years (aka we are not on spring break, just going for a vacation)... and do they treat non college kids any better? We look young but we can make it clear we're not college kids if that helps... the bad reviews are starting to worry me!

    You can request Phase II upon arrival if they placed you in Phase I. Trust me, don't believe everything you read on Trip Advisor. It is not as bad as people make it seem. Phase I is better anyways trust me..

    Okay well, I just want to request whichever will have the better rooms... so I would assume Phase II. Although I hear the plumbing and AC conditions are bad all across the board anyways...

    ahh well, should be a blast no matter what! Thanks for responding :)

    (Bump)

    Anyone know how to avoid the insurance charges, and at what age they are manatory? Can you avoid it if you are not a college student?

    I think it's $100 refundable or $25 non-refundable deposit per person. I don't think you can avoid it if you're under 27, even if you're not a student anymore. If you manage to convince them, please let me know how you did it ;)

    EDIT: Btw, does anyone know how the laundry service works in Oasis and how much it costs? We'll be coming in directly from jungle training so some of our clothes will need a good wash(or two ;) ) - would we be better off finding a cleaning service downtown? Thanks!

    If you ever will visit this place
    say "hola" to Sultan Ricardo,
    you can ask him anything ,
    about Cancun , the Grand Oasis,
    and he will give you the answer
    with the smile.
    However, never, ever ask him about
    vacation of Leonardito.
    This info you can find right here :

    suerte !

    Although I am not going to the Oasis until September, I would appreciate your reviews of the holiday and more importantly, the hotel, when you return!

    There are 2 phases, I and II, and then there is the GRAND oasis which is located in the middle of the property. Basically one side is more party than the other, but that doesn't stop you from visiting either phase. This usually only applies during spring break, so I wouldn't worry too much. August is a great time to go, have a blast!

    Thanks, man! I appreciate the reply. I also had a question about the mini bar. We aren't staying at the grand, so do we even get a mini bar or fridge? I read that Oasis guests don't even get bottled water. Also, I have read a few posts about extra, unecessary expenses being charged to guests' credit cards without them knowing. Has anybody here had a problem with that? Seems like the place might be a little shady which is worrying me. Thanks in advance!

    If you look for quiet place for adult it is the place to be, the staff simply amazing, ambience relax, room clean. The beach was the most clean in the area. Little show not to long but beautiful. To go in town (10 minutes) take the local bus for a dollar. i want to go back in Cancun in this hotel.
