We've been traveling to Tulum for years now and just discovered Las Olas. We loved everything about the place- the removed location, the small, intimate setting, how relaxed and friendly everyone was, the amazing breakfasts and lunches, the list goes on... It was the ideal setting to wind down from city life and relax. Sam and Jimmy were amazing hosts-... More

My first trip to Tulum was more than I could have ever expected with my stay at Casa de las Olas. The hotel and beach are as private as one could imagine bordering the protected primitive jungle coastline, and close but far enough away from the many restaurants, yoga studios, and shops on the Boca Paila beach road. The hotel... More

My experience at Olas is not one that will soon be forgotten. For starters, the location alone is nothing short of a dream. Whereas most of Tulum beach has become a bit crowded and loud for my taste, the beach in front of Casa de las Olas is quiet, pristine and secluded. Apart from the occasional passerby, you truly feel... More

Just stayed here a week ago, on a solo trip. Perfect location at end of Tulum beach, supremely relaxing. Small, intimate, great breakfast and lunches by the delightful Lulu. My room was perfect, and the staff are friendly, professional and incredibly helpful. The other guests I met were all interesting, and hosts Jimmy and Sam were great at recommending things... More

We split our Tulum trip between two hotels. The first was a cabana on the jungle side of the road at a mid-level hotel for under $200/night. The second was the Ocean Front Suite at Casa de las Olas for $300/night. It was on the high end of our budget, but we thought we'd splurge for something truly special based... More

My Husband and I originally picked this property because it was the last one on the beach. When we arrived, Jimmy and some of his amazing staff( who feels more like family) was there to greet us and help carry everything to our room. We had no idea what to expect having not stayed here before.... we were brought up... More

Our second visit to this superb location ,no doubt one of the finest on this coast .It was so lovely to just walk onto this lovely secluded beach. However you need to accept some basic shortfalls as there is no hot water in the wash basin or sink and no basin plug which makes a mockery of the Eco claims.Our... More

5:45AM- Wake up facing a perfect sunrise after the waves lull you to sleep. The Mayans use to call Tulum the land of the dawning sun. It gets no better. 6:30AM- Watch the kite-surfers in the distance dancing under the glowing sun and clouds. The beach will feel like it belongs all to yourself. 9AM- Hola Lulu! Coffee, juice, yogurt,... More

I honeymooned here and am now planning a return trip...The hosts, the staff, the place, the people...it's all so beautiful and you will be awestruck more than once. I highly recommend anyone to stay here when they are searching for a relaxing, fun trip! (I actually stayed in June 2012-this option was n/a in the dropdown!)
