    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 …

    ... WiFi. We then happened to see the guy who 'reserved' us the seats on the water taxi yesterday. He works selling shaved ice... too bad it started to rain and in general business was not going that well in the rainy season.

    The rain was not easing off, if anything, it was getting harder so we made a dash for it using the shop canopies for shelter. David asked about diving in a couple of shops and it seems that visibility is only about 6m at ...

    Anyhow,the beach, with cool vibe restaurant is 10 mins walk through the jungle and over the hill; a great 'hangout' bar with great rum punch ( Abuelo is soooo smooth, I'm sure my consultant would recommend it) is a 5min walk away, so we're okay. To get to town we get a 'free' launch/panga service 4 days a week.

    ... rich beautiful compost. In the case of a compost toilet over a hole, once it's full you move the toilet seat system to a new hole and plant your trees/veggies/whatever direct over the old one. It requires no water, and don't worry, there's no smell. In the time that Sam and I were at Maya Point, the local community decided to embrace the idea of the composting loo. After seeing how well it worked, Omar, one of the MP employees, and a well respected farmer on ...
