The hotel has a nice location a little farther from the main street of Bocas, which makes it quieter. It also has a wonderful sea view. There are four different types of breakfast to choose from, and ours were good enough. The staff don't seem to speak much English, but they managed to organize a taxi for us to go... More

Great location right on the sea, good value for money, not a very friendly lady at the front desk but breakfast is amazing and on the house! They also offer many boat tours and links to other organisations.

Do you really want my business? Tiny room, no patio. Cheap T.V. service...and no coffee in the whole place. $55.00 for two. I showed them my thermos and said I wanted coffee early in the morning. They said their machine was broken. It as still broken the next morning and I walked five blocks to get insipid coffee. The television... More

Breakfast is super yummy ajd my dad says they make the best pancakes ever. The drink are super nice... More

This hotel is in a perfect location - as long as you haven't come to Bocas to party! It's far enough out to be nice and peaceful, but it only takes a few minutes to walk into the centre of town. The area felt safe enough for us to let our 11 year old daughter go out souvenir shopping on... More

The location is fantastic on the water and the deck has great views, but this wasn't the chilled out, hangout place that I had been expecting. In the evening it was almost deserted, there was no atmosphere and no one eating here and only a couple of people nursing a beer. I was surprised to see so many people there... More

If you go to Bocas I recommend you stay here. We had a great room, the breakfast included is amazing with a view that can't be beaten. Staff really helpful. Location a little out, but 2 mins walk and you're in the centre. Loved it

Olas is beautifully situated on the water. You can enjoy a good free breakfast on the deck. Wifi was good. Rooms were small and the sheets smelled. We received clean towels Every day. We would recommend staying here As the price and quality are okay. Staff was helpful.

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.
