I absolutely adored Hotel Olas. The location is wonderful, the rooms are clean, nice and cool AC, very reasonable. The entire hotel is built over water on pilings and it keeps the place nice and cool and balmy. The first floor has a restaurant and bar area facing the Caribbean, it's break taking. I would spend time just sitting there... More

Our stay in Hotel Olas was fantastic- it's a short walk from the airport & right on the water but on a quiet street yet still practically in the middle of town. The rooms are very clean, spacious and the staff is very accommodating- any problem you have is solved immediately and beyond your expectations. We stayed in room number... More

The room was overall adequate with attractive wooden features though slightly small & noisey ( from next doors clients ) which was offputting .We stayed for the one night as it wasn't really what we were looking for but the bar area is relaxed with some decent views . The hotel is on the quiet side of the strip.

Stayed here for 4 or 5 nights in November. It's only a short walk to the main part of town, not in a bad spot. It offers a nice view from the patios where you can enjoy a beer and a cigar. The rooms have AC and a TV and are very nice to recuperate in after a hot day... More

One night was too much. Location was not in the best part of town. Water front, but very noisy water taxies and other boats buzzing by all day and night. Rooms are small and felt cramped. You could hear folks in the other rooms doing things you did not want to hear. Folks returning home after a light night at... More

I booked this hotel for a night through their online booking website. After a very long day I arrived at the hotel, dragged all of my luggage to the reception at the end of the hallway, and was not greeted by anybody. After waiting a little while somebody came over to help me. I gave my name and they picked... More

This was a quiet hotel in what can be a loud town. Rooms are okay but the common areas have great views and are a chill place to hang out. We were able to check in really early after taking the all night bus from Panama City. That was very much appreciated. I would stay here again next time we... More

My Partner & I stayed here recently. At $65/night for a double including taxes and continental breakfast, it was a very fair value, considering other available accommodation in Bocas. The room was comfortable and quiet since the hotel is on the edge of the restaurant/bar district. We could hear the water lapping at the pillars of the hotel which extends... More

My first trip to Bocas Town i stayed at this hotel. It was great i must say, they were open to make meals at any time, served beer as many as you can drink, and friendly staff to accompany you. They are right off of the water with a beautiful view that could bring me back for another visit by... More
