Coffee & Me, a coffee lover’s dream

For many people their day only truly begins after a morning coffee; waking up to that rich, enveloping aroma puts one in a good mood, ready to start the day the right way.   

That pleasure doesn’t have to stop when on vacation, quite the opposite, in all Oasis hotels and resorts you’ll find Coffee & Me, our coffee shop where each drink is made with a lot of love and its Caribbean Sea blue decoration relaxes you immediately. 

There’s a wide range of coffees to choose from such as Tiramisu, Irish Cappuccino and Caramel Coco; a combination of caramel and coconut syrups with milky coffee. All can be taken hot or cold as many prefer to do as antidote to the Caribbean heat. Apart from delicious coffees, you’ll also find a variety of teas, soft drinks, pastries and sandwiches, ideal to grab if you’re setting off on an early morning tour.

The selection of freshly baked pastries include cinnamon rolls, chocolate muffins and my personal favourite black and white chocolate doughnuts, a perfect accompaniment to your coffee of choice. There are also ciabattas with fillings like chicken and pesto, or bacon, lettuce and tomato as well as serrano ham and provolone cheese baguettes, all made by our chefs daily and like the drinks, can be had hot or cold.

Whether you decide to have your order sitting in one of its comfy chairs, on the beach or by the pool, we’re sure you’ll enjoy the experience immensely. So next time you stay with us, make sure to pay a visit to Coffee & Me!

Cinco de Mayo

Contrary to popular belief by many abroad, cinco de mayo (May 5th) is not Mexico’s day of independence but rather the day commemorating the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on 5th May 1862. Mexico’s Independence Day is 16th September and unlike this day, cinco de mayo is not observed as a national holiday. Stores, offices, and banks are all open, and many people go about their business as usual, with only public schools closing nationwide.  

The battle took place between a powerful and better-equipped French army, who were chasing unpaid debts and looking to expand their empire, against a much smaller Mexican force. General Ignacio Zaragoza’s Mexican troops were able to withstand attacks by General Charles Latrille de Lorencez’s 6,000 strong French force. Close to 500 French soldiers were killed in the battle, while the Mexicans lost fewer than 100 men. The Battle of Puebla came to represent courage and bravery against the odds and became a source of pride.

It is in the city of Puebla where the largest celebrations can be found. A large parade takes place where thousands of locals gather and dress as French and Mexican soldiers to reenact the war. After the Mexican troops win, celebrations begin with music, dancing and food. Mexico City also hosts a big parade with dancing, singing and re-enactments.

Apart from tacos, which is always a popular food at any Mexican celebration, the dish most commonly consumed on this day is Puebla’s own mole poblano; a thick brown sauce made of chilies and other spices and herbs, normally served over chicken or turkey and accompanied by rice.

It is in the United States where Cinco de Mayo is more widely and fervently celebrated, particularly in cities with large Mexican communities like Los Angeles, San Diego and San Antonio where Mexican-Americans have continued this celebration as homage to their roots.
