Casa de las Olas is an oasis at the end of the Tulum beach road. It's truly a unique place. In part that's because it's a little off the beaten path, not directly surrounded by shops or restaurants (those start about a half mile down the road). And in part it's because of the warm and welcoming atmosphere owner Jimmy... More

We loved our stay at Olas. It doesn't feel like a hotel, and I mean that in the most positive way possible. The property sits at the far southern end of the strip of restaurants, shops, and hotels along the Tulum beach road, so it's extremely quiet. There are only 5 rooms, and they're all in a single beachfront building.... More

The hotel, beach and surrounding area were as lovely as you see in the pictures. But two things made this hotel, and this trip, remarkably special. First, there is a wonderful feeling of community at Casa de las Olas. You sit at breakfast with the other travelers, trading tips about what to do in and around Tulum, sharing stories about... More

Casa de las Olas is the last property on the beach before the entrance to the Sian Ka'an biosphere so the lovely beach is almost deserted. There are only 5 rooms so never a press of guests and the grounds are lush with mature plants and coconut trees that reinforce the feeling of complete privacy. The hosts and staff are... More

What a blissful, fabulous place. Incredible beach, and wonderful staff. The communal breakfast is a fantastic way to meet and mingle with other guests. But it's the beach and the grounds that are serene and private and so beautiful that make this place so special. The kitchenette is very basic, though, and even small, rudimental meals (like quesadillas) can be... More

Jimmy and his crew have created a little slice of paradise at the end of the road in Tulum. The property is amazing, the beach beautiful, Lulu's breakfasts are better than almost any I have eaten, I could go on and on.

This was the second time to Casa De Las Olas, and once again, everything about the experience was perfect, above all expectations. Jimmy & Sam have become family. We enjoyed many delicious breakfasts prepared by LuLu, as well as Baja style fish tacos for lunch, that will blow your mind. The property is completely tranquil, gorgeous, and clean. Simple, yet...
