OK, this "resort" may be lacking in many respects, but I don't know of any other decent beach hotel where you can spend as little as we did per night and be able to open your door to a view of the Pacific, and pop a cerveza on your private veranda. We stayed there midweek in mid December, and the... More

You can walk miles on the beach...The only thing is there are no places to stop and have a drink after awhile. Low tide is great, it is so flat... Enjoyed the pool and all of the helpful people there. There are a couple of local places next to this place that we enjoyed going to.

This place is VERY hard to get to - way, way, way out there. Thank goodness for the signs on the roads the hotel has made with arrows, because you would never find it. It was like a ghost town and I understand why. The beach is NOT a "black sand" beach. I've been to black sand beaches in Hawaii.... More

Yes, we are a little remote. This, for some, is a negative aspect. For others seeking solitude and relaxation, this is definitely a positive thing! I'm sorry we were further out than you would have preferred. We offer a multitude of signage along the route to Las Olas to make arrival as easy as possible for our guests. Regarding the... More

This place has so much potential but it is a journey just to get here and I question whether it is worth it. I enjoyed seeing the sugar cane plantations on the trip to the resort and I loved the natural surroundings- palm trees, black sand beach-which make this area awesome. Bedding, bath and amenities could certainly be improved on.... More

The outside of the resort is really beautiful. I thought the pool was amazing especially for this area! The restaurant was beautiful but I was under impressed with the food. I ordered the house special which is whole fried pargo. Not sure how you can mess that up but it tasted horrible. My daughter had chicken fingers. She liked them... More

The hotel is right on the beach, the restaurant is good, we order room service the first time and we got the food in Styrofoam containers and plastic forks and knifes, but we asked for plates and they brought it and since that day we always get our room service food on plates, so they solved our problem right the...

This is the first time I have been to Las Olas and I believe is reasonably priced for what you get. I recommend that you buy before staying everything that you may need because you may not find it, unless you need alka seltzer or Tabcin for a cold.
