    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 …

    ... knackered after all the travel, so we allowed ourselves to be hustled into a cheap guesthouse on the main street- at least for the first night. And then it was time to hit the beach(!), so we made for the shared minivan to Playa Estrella in the North of the island. Whilst we were waiting for the van to show up, we recognised a couple walking along the pavement- it was Ben and Lucie that I’d climbed the Huayna Potosi with! We couldn’t believe it! ...

    ... faces, really enjoying our new friends and so happy about where we had come. As our friends were divers, the conversation eventually turned to diving. I had snorkeled in my life but never taken a scuba course. I think it was the same for Peter. Our friends said that we should give ita shot, that this was an excellent, affordable place to take our certification course. Perhaps weakened by lots of rum, perhaps just because we were open to adventure, we said “yes”. ...

    ... game was not available but Isaiah and I were able to watch Duke lose the ACC tournament, so that was fun. Dinner for me was country fried chicken and mashed potatos and was delicious. It was delicious, the only downside was I had to ask Isaiah to cut my chicken up because with one arm in a sling immobilized it was difficult to wield a fork and knife. Back to the hotel again to go to bed, we had an early flight in the morning back to Panama City.
