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. I asked for the newspaper and they did not have it... More

Have been to Las Olas Beach Resort 5 times now and the place is worth the money... actually it's a good deal. It's off the beaten path but worth the drive out to the coast from David.

Having stayed at many resorts and hotels in Panama as part of my business I must say that Las Ojas is well past its prime as a resort.
