Oasis Resort

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by aussiemate on July 9, 2001

The resort itself was huge and had a ton of guest rooms. There was a very nice pool and there were several towers of rooms. We weren''t thrilled with our room. The room was small and right near the elevator, so it was extremely loud. We really had trouble sleeping on Friday and Saturday nights, and there was no view outside of our window because the hotel is downtown. It is only about a four block walk to the shops and bars on the Esplanade or the restaurants in downtown, so the hotel location was convenient.

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.
