    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 …

    ... were Spanish days, Wednesdays we volunteered at the school, Fridays we ran a farmers market in the main tourist town on Isla Colon, and weekend were free time. So as you can imagine, it was a very rewarding kind of heaven. And I haven't even mentioned the best part. The farm produced all kinds of fruits and vegetable, but their primary produce was cacao. That's right, I was living on a chocolate farm. A fact I took advantage of by becoming totally addicted to ...
