      Hotel was okay

      Our room was very small but clean and it had a window that opened right over the water. Quite nice. The on-demand water heater kind of freaked me out - i had never seen one like it before. It worked more or less. Our room was quite noisy as it was across the hall from the supply room which had a sliding door that banged every time it was closed. The breakfast was a muffin and not a great muffin. The coffee was excellent though and you could buy really good smoothies. Smoking was allowed on the open air common area which could get kind of stinky. The manager (Ben) and Nada who worked the front desk during the day were great as were the cleaning staff. The other front desk staff though were very indifferent and not very helpful. I'm not sure I would stay here again.

      It was away from the middle of town so it was very quiet. The rooms were comfortable and at a good rate. It also has a nice back area, which is the open dining/bar right on the waterfront. There were regularly hummingbirds flying around which was nice. The staff were extremely helpful. The only drawback was that because it was away from the town it sometimes felt a little unsafe walking back at night.

      Noisey if you're downstairs

      The rooms are clean (ours had a funky smell about it) and the hotel is standard. Request a room that is not on the ground floor if you want a quiet night.

      A great view and possibly heaven for everything else.
      They had excursions to offer that cost from 20USD to 40USD.
      The staff was friendly but for the price we paid they could have had a bigger included breakfast.

      I am sitting in the open air lounge of the Hotel Olas in YET ANOTHER TROPICAL PARADISE. The heavy rain on the corrugated iron roof may sound alarming, but the ceiling fan keeps the temperature and mozies at bay.

      We left San Jose at 6am this morning less than impressed with the …

      ... if I had gone, and my legs were still quite cramped from my run and all of our other various activities. That evening we cooked up the rest of all the food we could make for dinner, played a few rounds of cards, and went off to bed again pretty early for our departure in the morning. Bocas was really amazing and I'm really glad we had the opportunity to go there a second time! A huge big ginormous thanks to Tanya and Ralph for letting us stay with them at Red Frog Resort ...

      ... On our way to the beach, we ran into Jeff and Mairi, a Canadian couple we had met at Lost and Found as well. We made plans for dinner and proceeded to find the beach! One of the most well known beaches on Isla Colón is Playa Bluff, so we set out to get there for the rest of the day. In order to get to Playa Bluff we had to bike for about 30 minutes, some of the biking we had to do was even on the beach itself. ...
