Where to Stay


Hostal Oasis: Mouldy dorm, unorganized & unfriendly french owner
by Realnew about 9 years ago

Oasis is a hostal in front of the beach with a dorm & private rooms (some with bath), no WiFi, no kitchen, less service, hot black sand and high waves (good for surfing, not for simply swimming).
We called them to reserve & when we arrived they told us that they don't take reservations. We were put in the awful smelling dorm.
Next day we got a private room & told the stuff (which is in general friendly but doesn't do more than it really has to do) that we want to stay 1 week.
In all the time they didn't clean the rooms nor the beach. Our kids even found a long machete on the beach in front of the Oasis...
After 3 days we asked for new sheets (rooms are pretty hot) and the stuff told us that we should leave tomorrow because of a reservation. They tried this with other guests.
At last the french owner blamed our kids for some faked things and he made up some reasons to kick us out. He even called the police (which threatened us to spent some nights in jail) to make sure that we leave.
