... a Familiar Resort close to Siam Park

Gran Oasis Resort has been open since 2000 and has a sunflower as its logo. The flower represents the hotel staff's friendliness towards their guests. The hotel is in one of the best areas in southern Tenerife, between Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos. It also has some marvellous views of the Las Américas golf course and the sea.

General features and communal areas at the Gran Oasis Resort

The hotel reception is a paradise of artificial palm trees, which is also reflected in the upholstery. The combination of greens, yellows and light beige is very harmonious. The reception is open 24/7 and has free Wi-Fi.

The reception is home to a musical band of four monkey dolls – yes, you read that right. These four monkeys are very happy and occasionally dance and play their instruments. Rest assured, you won't be bored with these four unusual companions around if you have to wait in reception.

The hotel has three swimming pools which are heated during winter. Two of these are adults-only and one is exclusively for children. There is also a giant chess set next to the pool which you can play with.

The Oasis pool bar serves a typical buffet lunch as well as a menu. It's quite casual, meaning you can get something to eat while wearing your swimming costume. The pergola in the pool area holds 80-100 people, and the hotel hosts shows there in the evening. The Chiringuito lets you enjoy some of the most delicious snacks without having to leave the comfort of your hammock.

The Veranda restaurant is close to reception and overlooks the swimming pools. They serve breakfast, lunch and themed buffet dinners with fresh ingredients prepared by show-cooks. You can dress casually at this restaurant, meaning you can dine in shorts and a t-shirt.

Finally, if you fancy a treat then the 'Oh La La' Ice Cream Bar is the place to go. They serve 'Carte d'Or' ice creams, sweets, cakes, milkshakes and fresh juices, waffles, tea and coffee.

The hotel has a children's entertainment area with a recreation room and computers with internet access. For the adults, there is a Welcome Meeting every Monday where the entire team introduce themselves. There is also a weekly schedule of sporting activities and evening entertainment. The MiniClub area is the best and largest of all the ones we've seen in Tenerife. Play Hotel is an imitation hotel reception with activities for kids. It's an enclosed area, so children won't be able to leave the fun and games unexpectedly. Children under six must be accompanied by an adult.

The reception has a late check-out area, which has a bathroom with a shower. Guests using this service are also allowed to use the swimming pool.

Rooms at Gran Oasis Resort

The hotel has 206 duplex apartments, three of which have reduced-mobility access. They generally have two bedrooms on the same floor. However, you'll need to use the stairs to access the terrace and solarium.

The layout and decor of both the one-bed and two-bed duplex apartments are the same. The upper area has a fully-furnished kitchen and a living/dining room with bamboo furniture. The apartment's lower area has a room with two beds, a terrace and a bathroom with bathtub. You can also add an extra bed. If you're staying with children, the hotel can fit a safety gate to reduce the risk of accidents.

The one-bed deluxe suites are in the best part of the hotel. You can enjoy the best views of the Las Américas golf course, the sea and the island of La Gomera. Finally, we saw a one-floor two-bed apartment suite with solarium. This apartment has everything you'd need, as well as Gran Oasis Resort's distinctive decor.

The only difference between the reduced-mobility apartments and the regular ones is that the former are limited to one floor. Guests will still have everything they need for their comfort and enjoyment.

Final Comments from the Authors to Gran Oasis Resort

Gran Oasis Resort is one of the best examples in Tenerife of accommodation that offers non-stop fun and entertainment. We saw guests going for a swim even while it was raining! This is one of the best family hotels that Tenerife Travel Secrets has ever visited. Proof of this is that it is ranked the Best Family Hotel in the Canary Islands on Trip Advisor.
