    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 …

Plans changed and I was off, without beach necessities, to the beach in another shuttle bus over pot-holed, windy roads created by Callie's and following a snake I'm sure! Drago is a beautiful strip of Sandy beach. REALLY!!! Wide enough between the palms for the car to drive on!! Out we get and into a boat for the 10 minute ride to ...

    ... at first until it dawned on us that we were actually going to get to see a turtle laying it's eggs on the beach. By the time we reached the turtle, it was at the top of the beach and ready to start digging. It digs a bed maybe 30cm deep before digging a hole about 70cm deep and 30cm across for the eggs. It was fascinating to watch this huge turtle, it's shell was 150cm long, digging the hole so precisely with it's back flippers. The flippers could reach down onto the ...

    ... beaches and colorful corals underwater; we spent hours and gallons of sweat hopping from one beach to another and in the midst of a dense vegetation, with close encounters with a snake and dozens of tiny red frogs, which we thought were both poisonous but that proved to be both harmless. The first day we walked back making a stop at the top of the hill in the middle of the island, for a beer in the hut of a local boy who looks like a son of Bob Marley, while in the evening of ...
