The cabanas are too cute and each with their own porch and hammock. I could hear the ebb and flow of the surf as I slept. Each morning I would arise and walk the 40 steps to the beach where I enjoyed an inexpensive breakfast at one of the many beach restaurants. Next, I would relax in one of the... More

I stayed at las olas for a month this summer, and it was fantastic. Manuel, Maria and the entire staff are wonderful people. A friend stayed in the cabanas and I stayed in the dorms. The dorms have SCREENS on the windows, which means no bugs. I think the fans are run off of a nuclear reactor:). There are NO... More

Spent two nights here. The room was very spacious and so was the bathroom. When checking in, we noticed 3 guys checking out with their legs red with buttons/bites. Unfortunately I left with about 30 bed bug bites. Theres also a required 500 pesos deposit...

We stayed at Hotel Las Olas for 9 days and found it to be comfortable (aside from the heat) and perfect location... Northern end of Zicatela where the surf is, great cheap beach cafes, mini mart 20 meters down the road and a short taxi to anywhere else. We negotiated a cheaper price per night for the length of time... More

Everything about this place was what I was looking for. Close to beach, cheap, quiet, cozy. The staff was great . Although didn't speak any English. There is a lavendaria up the street, and I had a mini fridge in the room. I stayed in a suite without a washroom to make it cheaper- the washroom was a separate locked... More

We were just arrived in Zicatela and looking for a confortable room to spend 3 nights. The vacancy sign caught our attention and the room clerk came and offered us a room that was much better than she described: ample, a double and a single bed, mini fridge, fan and flat screen with cable tv. The bathroom is clean and... More

I have really enjoyed my stay in Puerto Escondido. The Hotel Las Olas is centrally located on Zicatela Beach. I stayed in one of the cabanas which was clean and comfortable. The owners recommend some great places to eat and made sure I was comfy. I would recommend it anytime.

We stayed here for three nights in one of the cabanas. The wooden cabanas are nice, but placed on a concrete backyard. Unfortunately, the hostess is extremely unfriendly making us wanna leave the place right after waking up. There are many irritating rules, like washing of clothes is not allowed (!) and when you have to shower! Also they did... More

Really nice, cosy and clean hotel with incredibly low prices. Excellent location, there is lots of cafes, restaurants and little shops around and Playa Zocatela is few metres away. Recommended if you're on a budget and want comfortable and tidy place to stay.
