We had never stayed somewhere that required you to insert your room key into a slot in the room in order for the electricity to work. We found that energy-efficient, but we were not pleased that no one at the desk advised us of this fact when we checked in. We didn''t eat in the restaurants, so I can''t recommend them. We only got about 4 tv channels in the room, so there was nothing to watch. I''d say the hotel was about average, and I''d stay at the Hilton Cairns (see my write-up) before I''d come back here.

The typical room has a tropical look, with colorful fabrics, rattan chairs, and comfy beds with whimsically carved headboards depicting stars, crescents and waves. The reasonably spacious standard room has TV, writing table, in-room safe, minibar, and coffee maker. Each room has an outdoor balcony overlooking the pool or the lush mountains nearby, and the air conditioning is very cold!
The staff members at the Oasis Resort were friendly and very helpful with our questions. The main lobby area features a gift shop and a tour desk, where someone can help you arrange one of the many excursions in and around Cairns. There is a workout room, restaurant and bar on-site. The free parking garage is underground on the lower level, which also contains a self-wash laundry room.
The Oasis Resort is not the most luxurious hotel, but it is a very comfortable place to stay and is not a bad value for the rate.
