I can strongly recommend the Oasis.  My grand daughter (10) loves it there and meets up with all her friends over Christmas every year.  The (new) infinity pool is fabulous and (slightly) heated.  The restaurant is excellent , as is the bar/cafe by the sea. Lots of sunbeds on grass, with parasols and natural shade trees.  Best views of the cliffs in Los Gigantes.  Just beware of going too near the front of the park, if the sea is rough and there is a wind, as the spray is not as clean as it should be and could be a potential source of upsets.  Oasis is not open in the evenings.

General Discussion / Re: Natural Pool Crab Island

I hadn't realised how dangerous this place was till I read this thread.  I used to play in the crab island pool a lot in the early 80s when I was a kid and couldn't even swim very well then.

Needless to say this time my kids won't be going anywhere near it.  I had to dive in and save my youngest from the Tamara pool a couple of years back as for some reason they had removed the dividing barrier between the toddler pool and the deep pool so he just fell straight from 1ft of water to deep water. There used to be a wall there when I was young so it was safe to leave your kids in the toddler bit.   Whoever made that decision to remove the divider is risking lives.

Well I had been there multiple times in April this year, every time we went it was packed with people.. Even in the morning there would be about 10 people..

I only seen it closed for one day at around 7 pm(first time visiting it in the evening) that's might be why.

fresh water pool by pablado marinero was closed as rocks fell down and killed several people there.


also I have just found an article that shows several people dying In natural pool

yeah if I would have seen it before I probably wouldn't go there, but I visited it about 5 times in our two weeks stay and sea was quite calm and the time was enjoyable.

obviously as in this article above, you should avoid the place when the weather is like that

thank you CS, ill see if we can find it when we go in October.  We have a pool at our apt but the kids love anything with a slide, cant believe we missed it last time.

as you head towards the harbour take the road to the left of the road that leads to the harbour, that road leads to the back of the Los Gigantes Hotel where there is a car park, although it is usually full, the Oasis is on the right hand side

HI

I think I'm getting confused.  Where exactly is the oasis pool in los gigs.  I thought it was right down the bottom of the hill near the harbour but I think this is the lido you are talking about which I assumed was the oasis which is why I have never seen the slide.  Where is the oasis with the slides please.

we have found that quite a number of restaurants close May/June, It's low season, restaurants are all generally busier October - April.  If you want a table at Charlie's Bistro on 1 September you could try contacting them via Facebook

My children, (now grown up) would have probably liked at least half of what's on the menu and at 8 and 12 wouldn't have wanted chlldrens menus or portions so I would say it depends on what and how much your children eat.  Its not adults only.  They are closed for holidays till 1 September

They eat adult portions!  We come back on 2nd September, so probably won't get chance anyway if they're closed.

Any other restaurants currently closed for holidays?  The last two times we have visited have been during the Whit half term end of May/start of June, and more than half the restaurants in LG were closed for holidays.  We are hoping coming in August a lot more will be open?
