“Jewel under the palm trees”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Stayed here with 3 lady friends - one of which owned the time share. Easy to get to from the airport and great location from which to launch all your sun drenched activities. The mountains (not sure of their name!) frame the horizons when you walk out of your condo. The condo is clean and well appointed (extra 2 piece bath), washer/dryer and a bbq. Each grouping of condos has its own pool and hot tub. There is a small attached garage in the front of the condo which houses 2 bikes. The streets that run in and around the condos are immaculate. The small workout room could have a few more pieces of equipment but I was in there twice and I didn't have any company, so perhaps not well used. There are tennis courts to use. A walk of a block to the north is a beautiful 9 hole executive golf course and a block in the other direction is the famous " The Parker" - hotel of the stars when they come to play in the desert. (we saw Tori Spelling/Dean McDermott and 3 babes in tow). The hotel has a lovely courtyard that you can walk around and then buy $15 margarita - just so you are assured you are surrounded by pomp! lol I would dearly love to come back to this property.

Oasis is a timeshare resort, but also has vacation rentals and nightly rates available. Through a friend who owned a timeshare, we had the opportunity to stay here for 2+ weeks in February. We could not have been more pleased.

ACCOMMODATIONS:
It turns out a condo described on their website as a '2-bedroom, 2-bath, + den' is actually an adorable little villa with a 2-car garage, 2 bikes, and ample space to spread out. Everything was impeccably clean. The master bedroom had 2 very large closets and an en suite bathroom with a huge bathtub and granite countertops. The second bedroom had another large closet, an en suite bathroom with granite countertops, and a tiled shower. The ‘den’ had a Murphy bed and a desk/chair, with shutter doors for privacy in case it’s used as a bedroom. The living room was huge – 1 large sofa and 2 chairs, coffee table, and a large entertainment center with TV. There was a 6-person glass dining table next to the kitchen. The full-size kitchen was lovely and fully equipped with everything you would need during your stay: granite countertops, gas stove, dishwasher, dish cloths & towels, flatware, serving utensils, glass cups, plastic cups to bring to the pool, paper towels, wine glasses, pots & pans, bakeware, platters, wine bottle opener (very important), plates, bowls, dish soap, etc.. There’s even a full size side-by-side washer and dryer in the unit, which was especially convenient (buy your own detergent, as it is one of the only things not provided). There was a patio in the back with a nice 4-person patio set, and a gas grill (nice touch!). The unit only shared 1 garage wall with the home next door, so it was very quiet and we never heard our neighbors. The units were also offset, so there were only a couple windows facing the home next to us.

GROUNDS:
This is a gated development with waterfalls around every corner, lush and mature landscaping, meandering pathways for relaxing strolls, tennis courts, quiet streets, and quiet people. No party kids here – only happy guests that want to relax and enjoy the sunshine. There are 8 pools. Seriously – 8 pools. Odd-numbered pools are heated, even-numbered pools are not. The main pool next to the clubhouse is very pretty with several patio sets to eat lunch or drink cocktails, and plenty of lounge chairs for sunbathing. We are a childless couple and we covet quiet or adults-only pools when we travel. The pool was wonderfully relaxing most days -- there was only 1 day when the screaming children and their incompetent parents were so unbearable we packed up and left. I’ll never understand why parents think it’s completely acceptable to disrupt everyone’s day at the pool by allowing their children to scream non-stop. Ok, moving on… I should mention there IS an adults-only pool, which is smaller than the main pool, but looked lovely. Had we encountered the screaming children again, we would have headed over in that direction.

MISCELLANEOUS:
--Wi-fi. Free if you are a timeshare owner, nominal fee for others (I think it was less than $10/day). For the most part it was fast and reliable for working/VPN, with only a few hiccups.
--Housekeeping only comes once a week – which is all you need since you have a washer/dryer. They supply plenty of towels and paper products to get you through the week, in addition to a few cleaning supplies.
--Lots of grocery stores in the area: Vons, Ralphs, Fresh & Easy, etc. (we preferred Ralphs, hands-down).

If you visit Oasis, stay as long as you can – even at the end of our 17 days, we didn’t want to leave. Thank you for a wonderful stay at this beautiful resort!

After reading the Trip Advisor reviews before our trip, we were fairly confident that we would enjoy Oasis, but our expectations were not overly high. We are happy to say we completely underestimated this resort community. It was perfect for our trip and we loved it! Oasis Villa Resort is not a bustling large hotel with restaurants, bars, and resort activities. It IS a wonderful, relaxing home away from home. We rented a two bedroom unit with den and stayed for two weeks. Picture a small, gated, quiet Palm Springs neighborhood with pools, hot tubs, and tennis courts. Some reviews complained about their unit being located just over the wall from the busy street (Hwy 111) because of the noise. Ours was, but it was a non-issue for us. While you could hear some traffic from the patios, it was insignificant. The location is also wonderful. Head west 5 minutes and you're in downtown Palm Springs, head east 5-10 minutes and you're in downtown Palm Desert. We invited older family members to join us for part of the trip and each couple enjoyed privacy in the unit, including their own bathroom. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: If traveling in winter months, choose a location close to one of the many HEATED pools. Only half th...

This was the 2nd year we were at the oasis. The first week we were a little unhappy. The apt was very dark and was near the highway. Sitting outside was impossible due to the noise and darkness on the patio. However we asked to be changed for the second week and we were given a lovely, very light apt near two pools. The staff was very helpful in every way. Especially a rep named Mark. He did everything he could to accommodate our request. The apts are well equipped and spacious. We plan to return next year and to make sure we request an apt that is sunny and not near the highway.
