"Just returned from the Oasis Village Hotel and was very disappointed with the overall standard of the room which in my opinion needed a good overhaul. The rooms were of a good size but the wardrobes were damp and made our clothes smell musky. The toilet was leaking and unstable. The towels were changed every couple of days. The food left a lot to be desired although the staff were very friendly and helpful. The entertainment was not much better, very repetitive and boring although Sam who was in charge did his best to try and rally people. We had a 7 days all inclusive and we arrived late on the Wednesday and we had to check out at 12 the following Wednesday and was not allowed anything for the rest of our stay although we didn't leave till 3.00 unless we paid which to my reckoning we had paid but apparently this was not the case. The best part of the holiday was the weather which was very hot and windy. I would definitely not go back."

"Well where do i start.......I Know lets start with the rooms.Shower didn't work properly and no cold water from Hand basin.Towels changed i think once a week but was unsure if it was even that as the only time the apartment got cleaned was 2 days before we were to depart.I had to go up to reception twice to ask for new toilet roll as like i said cleaners didn't go in that often. My god the beds how can i explain probably by saying if you were to sleep on the floor it would have been more comfit able plus the pillows you were better off rolling your cloths up and laying your head on them than put up with the constant neck strains or headaches.My 11 year old boy was really upset after looking at the wooden cot type bed he was excepted to sleep on which was without doubt disgraceful so ended up sleeping on the 3 seats which wasn't that great either. When i was putting the coffee and tea into the cupboards too my amazement i found a half of french stick on the top shelf surely not a greetings gift but i know i could have scored a home run with it.Go Camping you will have more comfort in your tent. There were two swimming pools at the complex and too be honest you can't fault them they were well maintained but it was just a pity that you were not able to get any sun loungers as everyone seemed to revert to the old German trick by putting there towels on them in the early hours of the morning and then half the time they would not turn up till midday to use them. The swearing round the Pool by adults plus some of there kids was pretty disgraceful especially when there's so many younger kids about. The Reps tried there hardest to entertain the kids and adults and wasn't there fault but it seemed to be the same 3 main girls on from 10.00 in the morning till about 12.00 at night they worked really hard but i have to say the entertainment was pretty shocking and Poor and by the second week starting we saw ourselves going out of the complex day and night not just because of the entertainment but the food as well.Which i am getting too. You had one big hall where you went into breakfast,dinner,and tea and you were rammed in there like cattle.If you were in a small party it wasn't that bad getting a table but as we were a group of 8 we often ended up waiting for a table to sit.which by being pulled aside and telling you to wait and stand in front of about 300 people like naughty school boys was a nice touch. The Food i can only explain as terrible no variety same thing over and over again if you don't get down for breakfast early enough you won't end up with a lot on your plate which isn't a bad thing but breakfast was probably the best meal of the day. Pork wasn't cooked and raw sausages Stick with salad or the rolls that was the best bet and if you like waiting a long time in a que to get your food then good on you. The drinks on the day time at the pool bar was good only aloud a limit of 4 drinks per person which was sensible but some people obviously tried to abuse that which you could tell just by looking at there table point of that i don't know as it was all inclusive. The Night time bar was more of a problem as to get a drink you normally have to stand in a Que for a while to get your drinks which normally put you off going back up to get any more.Which was where the staff were stretched. Security was called a couple of the nights we stayed there as for one of the the nights one of the guests was so drunk he was going round all of the girls and women making a pest of himself in the end he was dragged off by security after talking to two of the girls he had upset and what he said to them i won't repeat but these two girls were told by the travel rep that if they had a problem fill a form out for complaints but then was assured that this man was not going to be served drinks again during the stay of his holiday as they had complaints about him before but then a couple of days later he was back to his old tricks again drinking day and night and to be honest shame on you. Hated my Stay at this place and will not be returning when you save so hard for a nice holiday you expect better "

"Just returned after 10 nights, we were a family of 2 adults and 2 kids ages 14 and 12 this was our first experience of all inclusive and probably our last. We had a pool view room, which was a nice view. I would not recommend this hotel, the food was of a poor quality and very repetitive, with strange combinations, we ate out several times at a local Chinese restaurant in town. The room was spacious, but in need of redecorating, there were ants constantly in the rooms. The beds were very uncomfortable and as there is no air conditioning it was very uncomfortable during the night. There are cats that wander around the complex and will enter your room if the balcony door is kept open. We were there for 10 nights and only had our towels changed 3 times, NOT good when 4 of you shower every day. The pool snack area (tables) were always very dirty, dropped food on floor with birds flying in to get to it, the snack area also had birds flying in and pecking at food on the ground, there were no staff cleaning this, it appeared to be the barmans job and he was always too busy serving drinks. Queue at pool bar often long, but very quick going down, even with one person serving. The evening entertainment left a lot to be desired (bingo, play your cards right or Thomas cook reps putting on a show) and we were back in apartment by 10 most evenings. Recommend you take goggles for swimming pools as salt water stings the eyes, be warned!!! the salt water also destroys/scratches goggles and sunglasses, so do not take expensive ones with you. The pool area was also very dirty, we did see it being cleaned but not every day, they seemed to do a small section every few days, we spent our days at the deep end and only saw this area cleaned once in the 10 days we were there. If you do not go down and put a towel on a sun lounger, you will not be able to get one by 8 am, this was ridiculous, as most of the time the loungers/towels were not in use for hours. The area that the hotel is in, appears to be quite run down or unfinished, We will not be returning to Oasis Village or Fuerteventura."

"Just returned 3 days ago after one week all inclusive family holidays the room were clean and staff were friendly but the food was horrendous - tasteless, some looked recycled from previous sessions. it was chips, chips and chips except for breakfast. one of Thomas cook reps at the resort was very rude when i tried to express our views after my daughter vomited after eating one of their worse meal.

Don't knock it til you try it!
"We have just returned from a 7 day all-inclusive holiday at Oasis Village. Great weather. I cannot believe some of the reviews I have read. All of the hotel staff were polite and friendly, if there was a problem they did their best to solve it (no need for tissue instead of plug!) The rooms were cleaned regularly, towels changed three times and bedding once during our week long stay. Kitchen area well-equipped if you fancy cooking whilst on holiday!? WI-fi not very good in rooms - not worth 16 Euros. Food was acceptable, always plenty of choice and piping hot - no complaints. We would not hesitate to go back. Our advice, try it, we don't think you will be disappointed."

one word SHOCKING
"we have been to this resort 3 times both b4 where superb but then made the mistake of booking for christmas. we ended up spending ALOT of money outside the complex as the entertainment was poor, in the broucher it states kidsclub and comes under the family section needless to say this year it has been removed from such. the food was this time awful and we all ended up ill, in the prievious broucher it states salt water do not be fooled it has chlorine in now to save money and they have also removed that from the brochure 2013, i have an allergy to chlorine and blistered the first day, the christmas entertainment consisted of silly adult games and the staff asking the children what they had for christmas, the room was empty by 10 all but a few that prob like skegness abroud. although the charactors apeared this day first time since we got there. one family with small children DARED to complain and got grief in front of there very young children. drinks in vending cups all but a mouthful and rude thomas cook staff that phoned in sick when complaints came flooding in. my children went with an expectation of what they recieved prievious years and was totally dissapointed. the holiday overall cost more but got less cuts all over. bad managment thomas cook thank you for a rubbish christmas and new year. we shall not be returning to this complex again asover all with the costs outside of the so called all inclusive = 4900 skegness at easter was better with a total of 600 pound with food.

"We just returned from a weeks stay at the Oasis,we had great room service no complains there,rooms very bare and dull ,bathroom whats the point of having a bath and sink with no plugs solution us toilet roll to make a plug bit messy but worked .Would of been nice to have had a couple of side plates and a knife in room for late snacks if you eat early like we did late night snack would of been nice. the pool area was very clean staff very freindly and helpful .Meals that is something else one day scrabbled egg ect, agreat breakfast nextday fried cold eggs burnted tom, bacon like eating string hashbrowns burnt that happened every second day. Lunch we had burgers three times in aweek ok if you like eating bits of cardboard good job for salards, main meal great but would have been better if we had mashed potatoes now and then. Entertainment night and day very good, Thomas Cook entertainment staff very good gave us good imformation were to go and what to see.The hotel was set in a lovely place with in walking distance of shops and great beach walks ,overall bad points good points but we are returning in June. [cats no bother]"

Thank you for looking after us so well!
"Absolutely great holiday break! The staff were so good and understanding when faced with some really demanding 'Brits'. But they looked after us so well. For what we paid the room was good the cleaning was good the linen was good and we found the food excellent. The only problem was that most of the Brits seemed to think they were eating for Britain. Thinking that the solution was to pile their plates as high as they could on their first visit unable to grasp the fact that they could go back for more at any time. Our second visit and we shall be returning again. No contact with the Thomas Cook staff so cannot comment on their performance! Would have preferred some more mature music played around the pool in the afternoons and evenings. Thank You and best wishes Jan 2012"

get what you pay for
"My husband and I and our two nieces stayed here for ten days in July,the girls loved it,two huge pools and lots of space for them to run around in.Rooms were adequate,cleaned about four times a week,food was a bit hit and miss,but you could always find something to eat,salads were great,meat a bit tough,hardly ever served boiled potatoes but chips were available lunch and dinner!!! The worst bit for us was having to be out at 8-00am to find a sunbed that didn't have a towel on it!!Some were still not occupied till the afternoon why are people so inconsiderate ?? Another complaint I have is people eating food and drinking on sunbeds and then just DUMPING their rubbish anywhere,there were lots of bins around I am ashamed to say a lot of the culprits were British!! Could have done with an outside stage for the evening entertainment it was stiffling inside. Staff especially in resteraunt were very pleasant ."

"Have just returned after 2 weeks with my family. I can't believe these reviews and think I must have stayed in another hotel. The food was plentiful and always a large variety, if you could not find anything to eat well you must eat like kings and queens at home. Our room was cleaned and linen and towels changed 4 times a week, alot more than they would be changed back home I would say. There was 4 cats and they never slept on the loungers, infact they shyed away from people. Pool side bar staff were very chatty and happy if you took the time to speak to them, as were the bar staff of an evening. We had a problem with our safe and the maintenace man was there within 10 minutes to fix it, on another night our light bulb blew again within minutes the same man was there to fix it. We had a greqat holiday, but I suppose it's what you make of it. Entertainment team and Kidsworld team were fantastic and really genuine people. We will be returning next year for another great holiday."
