The hotel is OK (bad smell though), but the stuff is awful. The lady was playing with her phone while we were trying to order breakfast, which was impossible because she didn't even respond to us. so we went to eat breakfast in a different better place ( and she could not care less). Don't understand how this hotel is... More

Olas was the best find of my month-long trip. Like everyone else, I found Ben to be amazing. His ability to create good was a treat to experience, a treat to watch. Tours, diving, restaurant recommendations: no problem. Dealing with difficult customers unused to 2nd world travel, he was solicitous and caring. As much concierge as hotel manager, a spirit... More

Decent location a bit off of the main strip. Slightly quieter but still prepare yourself for the neighborhood kids playing (screaming) at least 2/3 of the day and night. Was at least a block away from a rat infested garbage pile so smell of rotting garbage and sewage was not as prominent as other areas of town.Beautiful views of the... More

Hotel olas, wonderful staff. I really appreciated all the help from Ben, not knowing much Spanish, he made things easier for me. The hotel is right on the water, you have a wonderful view to take in while sitting in the terrace. Our room was up on the top floor. There is a secondary area to sit and take in... More

Critters on the walls and on the table. Very old and stinky furniture . Sticky wood floor and a smell of pee all over the ocean view suite. Worst hotel we had so far ....and we visited more than twenty in the last three month. We came late and couldn't start a new search for another hotel. We didn't unpacked... More

The hotel is clean and average in price. It's near the end of the hotel strip so at night it wasn't as loud as being on the main street. I didn't love the town of bocas - not sure why you would stay there unless you had to for a layover/to catch an early flight. Lots of young backpackers in... More

This place has been really great! The receptionists are super helpful and have gone out of their way to help us. The rooms are clean and spacious enough. It is a short walk to the main street and they have tours around the island to the different beaches departing from the hotel everyday. I would highly recommend them.
