Oasis Casino is part of the Embassy Suites Puerto Rico Hotel, which was once managed by the Hilton Hotels & Resorts group. However, the casino and its hotel were recently purchased by Eagle Hospitality. The hotel and casino are located in Isla Verde in the Puerto Rican capital of San Juan. This area of the city is famous for its vacation resorts, hotels and casinos with a relaxed atmosphere.

For transportation, you have the choice of bus, taxi, or car rental. Taking the bus is the cheapest option, but if you aren’t keen to wait for the bus, the taxi station is located just outside the airport.
