Its hard to imagine a better vacation experience than the one we had at Casa de las Olas. I hope I am not ruined for life. Be ready to be really relaxed and care-free. Jimmy and Sam as well as the rest of the small staff become your family in a couple of days. This place is a true gem,... More

Wonderful location at the quiet end of the beach - the last house before the Sian Ka'an reserve. With only six rooms it's very relaxed and friendly. Everyone is there for peace and quiet. Delicious breakfast and lunch, wonderful rooms and practically a private beach. Very relaxing indeed.

What a great place! A hidden gem tucked away at the end of the strip. The location, the hosts, the breakfast, the beach couldn't be better. I'm already planning my next trip. Thanks Jimmy and Sam for making our trip perfect. Your motto is so true "come as a guest, leave as a friend".

Jimmy, Sam, Lulu, Tatiana, Shadar, Roberto, Jimmy's extended family, Thank you for a perfect Christmas holiday vacation. The people, accommodations, setting, and food were exceptional in every way. We appreciate the wonderful catamaran sail with Fabian, and the amazing Bird Island tour you arranged for us with Fernando. We would love to come back.

Loved staying here. If you want to experience what Tulum is really about instead of riding along on the mass tourism trail, Olas is for you. Romantic, peaceful, unique, beautifully situated and superb food. We loved waking up to the sound of the Caribbean every morning. Thank you, Jimmy, Sam, Lulu, Shedar, Tia, Roberto & Teresa. And let's not forget... More

In Dec 2014, we spent two weeks at Casa de las Olas in two different rooms, and had a great time in both. Lulu prepares breakfast from scratch each morning, and it was awesome every day. Loved the granola and the chilaquiles. If you'd like, you can pay a little extra to have her prepare lunch for you. This is... More

I had the extreme pleasure of attending Casa de las Olas' Eat Retreat this past November. Having spent the past decade on food focused travel that I had organized, I wasn't sure someone else could plan a week of eating that lives up to my standards. Within 15 minutes of arriving, Jimmy and the las Olas family had me convinced... More

My wife and I spent 6 wonderful nights at Casa de las Olas in early October for the back half of our honeymoon. Much of the relevant praise has been thoroughly captured in past reviews, but we can confirm Casa de las Olas even exceeded our (high) expectations. Jimmy was the epitome of a gracious host and his dedication to... More
