I stayed at the Grand Oasis Marien in Puerto Plata, DR 14 to 21 June 2010. The site is not very large, so the facilities, lobby, buffet, a la carte restaurants and the sea, are close to everything and beautiful vegetation on the site. The Grand Oasis is the latest hotel then left a few minutes walk, however, on the right of the hotel is just walk very far. You should know that the buffet is not air conditioned and how it is caught by the theater, daylight does not penetrate, so the room (buffet) is very dark. In addition, there are many birds that come picosser on tables after the departure of people. However, the buffet itself was adequate and very good. And other a la carte restaurants are not air conditioned, except above the pool bar "The Italian" There are 4 restaurants a la carte or Seafood, Mexican, Italian and La Creperie, which by the way it was excellent. I just do not comment on the seafood there is not gone. For two others, on a scale of 0 to 5, I coterais 3. Table service for wine and coffee was really deficient. To me, the hotel lacks a little organization. My room was in block 3 - # 3314, nice location overlooking pool, however it was very standard, it not deserve 4 * & 12, while the room is sufficient for my week, is that the bathtub and the door toilet paper left much to be desired and that the railing of the balcony was really filthy. By cons, the pool was quite brilliant in its grandeur and very clean and plenty of sun. Many activities on site, pool and beach party and music was excellent and not too strong and not chicaboom ? just enough for fun. The beach with fine sand beige no palapas as such, but there was kind of shelter "tent" and plenty of sun, also shaded areas with vegetation Sea, this is not the beaches of Punta Cana or Cuba or Sosua, there was a bit of seaweed and the days when the sea was agitated there was a little more rest than I washed a lot and sometimes there were p'tites waves that I have appreciated. Not need water shoes, no rocks or shells in the Sea Water is not as transparent to the United Republic Sosua DR. Need to know initially that the lockable fridge one day before we left, I called 2 times at the reception and I went to come open. After all we are entitled to 2 beers & 2 drinks per day, I put a lil 'orange juice and made them out of the fridge! Also, be aware that initially, the big bottle of water on the table, you have free and every day, but unfortunately if you take one of p'tites water bottles in the fridge , you will have to pay top dollar and + U.S. $ 3.00 and as snacks. In conclusion, the price paid for $ 544, I had an excellent trip, however this hotel is not one of my favorites for the rooms and there are blocks renovated 7.8 & 9.
