As part of our ongoing coverage of the $30 million renovations of the Oasis Hotels & Resorts brand, Travel Agent took a tour Thursday of both the enhanced Oasis Palm Beach and Grand Oasis Palm. Both resorts recently reopened after being closed for a year.
The 245-room Grand Oasis Palm is perhaps the company's go-to resort for families. We were particularly impressed that children under the age of 12 are welcomed at this resort for free. There are currently two rooms that are specifically decorated for children. One of the rooms, Room #1811S, is decorated with a marine theme. The blue, vibrant walls have such designs as lobsters and submarines, while Room #1804 features a jungle/safari theme, with such designs such as tigers and elephant on the walls. Within the next month there will be eight more of these rooms.
The 470-room Oasis Palm Beach is also heavily family oriented, but the amenities are limited as guests of this resort are not allowed to use the services of Grand Oasis Palm, however clients at Grand Oasis Palm are allowed to use the facilities at this resort. The most impressive amenity by far is the Kids' Club. In fact, this is perhaps one of the most impressive kids clubs we have seen in all of Mexico as it features everything from a disco to a pool with a water slide to a children's restaurant. The club is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is free. The Kids' Club, however, is only offered to children 12 and under.
