We stayed at hotel Olas in June of 2014. While we were sleeping, someone had come into our room in the middle of the night and robbed us. We have reason to believe that this was done by someone from the hotel. The idea that we got robbed while we were in the room, that someone was in there while... More

We had a great stay at Hotel Olas! Friendly and helpfull staf (in 99% of the cases). Cozy atmosphere, nice interior and great verandas by the water! It's a small town so location will let you walk anywhere in 5-10 minutes. It's possible to rent surfboards, bikets etc. and book tours at the hotel.

Absolutely loved the place. Great room (quiet, A/C and hot water working perfectly), amazing view (right in the water, boats and yachts passed by, sunset was beautiful), but more importantly amazing people… we where treated like family. The breakfasts were good and the hotel is close to everything. We would definitely go again!

Excellent place. Conveniently located away from the confusion of the main street yet very close. Nice building built over the water with a great terrace at water level where a very good breakfast is served. On the upper levels there are other smaller and quieter longes. Cute decoration. Some of the rooms have great views of the sea. Loved the... More

*Nicely laid out hotel. Relaxing on one of the decks or in one of the hammocks as the sun is setting with hummingbirds buzzing around you is a pretty nice experience. *Ben, the manager, is a very friendly helpful (english speaking) person. *The complimentary breakfast is very basic but for a small fee I would recommend the shakshooka (eggs poached...

At a quiet place in town this sea-Side hotel is run by a friendly israelian guy named Ben and therefor a popular hangout place for travelers. Rooms are clean but walls are thin, combined with an loud aircon u may wanna bring earplugs. Breakfast is included but is limited to a muffin, juice and coffee. The snorkling tour was worth... More

Great place and great value for your money. Located on a quiet side of town. It has a great ocean deck to watch the most beautiful sunset. You can borrow bikes and ride around town or just walk a few blocks to find lots of restaurants and shops. Grocery store nearby too. You can also book your tours right at... More
