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. The staff is excellent and will go the extra step to accommodate. If you're looking to get away from the hustle & bustle... More

While on a trip to Panama we stayed at hotel Los Olas Resort. This resort could be very nice however it is very much in need of an overhaul to say the least! The rooms were not clean although large enough. The towels were old and frayed, the sheets were old and stained. The pool was clean and along with... More

I stayed at the resort for one night and first the place if overpriced for what you get. The bed was terrible and the room itself was big but needs some major updates. The shower drained was very bad and the bathroom was not cleaned at all. The sheets on the bed smelled and when I asked for them to... More

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. The staff try their hardest but the facilities, rooms, amenities are desperately in need of updating. Check in was fine and staff try hard. The grounds look quite neglected and need some... More

My wife and I loved staying at the Las Olas Beach Resort. The rooms were clean and spacious. The air conditioning worked well. There were a variety of television channels. There were many things to do at the resort including a spa, a workout room, an infinity pool, volleyball, table tennis, etc. There was also the Pacific ocean, of course.... More

We've returned to Las Olas numerous times since we first reviewed it, and continue to enjoy it. We also enjoy going for morning runs on the beach shortly after sunrise, and enjoy those runs most at low tide, when the beach is at its widest and firmest (at high tide, the beach is narrow and the exposed sand is soft)....

The hotel was nice and the staff was very pleasant and helpful during our stay. As mentioned in other posts, the pool area was very clean and our children enjoyed swimming immensely. There is A/C and it works, so that bumps this place up a notch in our book! The food was decent, nothing spectacular and meals were a bit... More

Rooms are a bit dated, but the staff is super friendly and go the extra mile. The pools are nice and have a swim up bar. There was only 2 of us on the beach for as far as you can see. The resort is a good 1/2 hr of twist and turns from the city but once there very... More
