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. Sam and Tia were so helpful with adventuring about and Jimmy is a wealth of knowledge about the... More

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...

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.
