We have stayed at the Oasis Playa 2004 and 2005. The beach area was fairly quiet/laidback. One pool had fun activities and at times was roudy (fun). There are areas near the pool that are quieter. The bars can get a bit loud at night, but again there are places that are more relaxing.We found the employees very friendly to us. We try to use some spanish and they seem to really appreciate our efforts. The hotel is all inclusive....you will find that a few dollar bills will go far, we always got extra towels, fast service at the bar. Hope you have a great time.
