The Oasis Park is an altogether decent hotel without any particular features, but it is equipped with ample amenities for families to have a pleasant holiday in the sun. Light on activities and heavy on food, this hotel is recommended for young couples and the parents of young children. The only inconvenience: the hotel is quite far from the public beach.
The Oasis Park stands in the district of Fenals, approximately 500m from the beach of LLoret de Mar, and 600m from its lively town centre, pubs, restaurants, and shops. The town of Lloret de Mar is lively and highly frequented by young Europeans in search of a wild nightlife. Barcelona airport is some 60 mi away and Girona airport about 24 mi away.
In summer, the Loret de Mar nights are... Very hot, literally and figuratively. Popular among young Europeans who've come to party, the town can get quite noisy and stay that way until late into the night. Almost all on site activities are free, except for the sauna, which incurs an added charge. The private car park is charged per day and spaces do not require prior booking. Three dance nights are organised each week: a Flamenco night, a traditional Andalusian song and dance show, as well as a medieval night.
The Oasis Park is a large L-shaped, 5 storey building dating from 1975 and partly renovated in 2009. Architecturally speaking, there isn't much to say, the building as a whole is massive and bland (especially as the view is blocked by the other surrounding buildings). The impersonal decor in the vast lobby is without character. The floor is covered with tiling and there aren't many chairs near the reception for guests to sit in (not very practical for weary guests arriving with their bulky luggage). Having said that, the atmosphere here is homely and convivial, thanks to the bar, small lounges, video games, and pool tables. Outside, you will find one large pool watched by a member of staff and a second heated one covered in winter but open-air in summer. Beyond this pool are the playground and children's club, in the middle of the lawn. The hotel has a small fitness club equipped with a whirlpool bath, a sauna, and a gym with scanty apparatus.
The 428 guest rooms of the hotel are either standard double rooms or suites boasting a terrace and a whirlpool bath. Not all of the rooms have a balcony, so verify this when booking if you want to be able to smoke a cigarette in the sun close to the comfort of your own room. The reasonably sized rooms (about 16m²) are clean and tidy, and their blue and white decor reflects the decoration of the lobby: very simple and without character. Each room is equipped with satellite television, a direct international telephone line, adjustable air conditioning, a safe (available for a fee), a mini refrigerator (£2.60 a day), and a hair dryer. If you are lucky enough to have a balcony, it will not be equipped with a table and chairs. The bathrooms are only just decent, with a bathtub, a toilet, and some hospitality products.
The hotel provides either half-board or full-board accommodation. Meals are served as a buffet in the main restaurant. The choice of dishes is varied enough, abundant, and changed on a regular basis. The quality of the food (international and local) is standard. Theme nights are organised all week long (Catalan, Mexican), sometimes accompanied by live music, especially on Flamenco nights.
The public beach of Lloret de Mar is about 500m from the hotel and is a reflection of the town itself during the summer: crowded and flooded with young fiesta-thirsty Europeans. If you like the idea of sipping on 2m high fluorescent cocktails in a decadent setting, or playing a game of beach volleyball with complete strangers, this is the place for you. If not, you risk becoming rapidly bored... The sand is imported and therefore rather coarse. One advantage of this is that you won't encounter as many creepy-crawlies as you'd find in "real" sand. The sea is beautiful, clear and calm: sure bliss!
