I've stayed here several times and I cant wait to go back. My last stay in Feb. was one of my best. What makes this place so great? In my opinion, its Jason and Raffa. They are both great people who go out of there way to make sure that their guests have a great time. They will help you... More

I came here in January with 7 friends, about half of us surfers and the other half not surfers. January is right at the beginning of Costa Rica's dry season, and not only is it HOT, but it is HUMID! I stayed in the sky box at the main house and my friends occupied the two rooms below. Only one... More

One of the best trips I have taken! Both Jason and Raffa were very professional and made us feel at home! If you like to surf and enjoy good food, I highly recommend Las Olas Hotel and Restaurant! Enjoy!

I only had breakfast here when I stayed at Surf Inn Hermosa. The place has a very rustic look that fits very well into the kind of beach it is located on. A very different and relaxing location. I am not a surfer but I still enjoy this place as it's so relaxing to just sit back and enjoy watching... More

We were robbed in this hotel by hotel staff (the bar manager sneaked in our room when we were doing the check in). We reported the robbery to the police and notified hotel management about it ... they did nothing. They have no insurance, no cameras, etc. The police recommended us to stay there until they gathered more info. The... More

Stayed here in March/ April for 5 days and had a blast. The hotel itself is rudimentary, but the staff totally make up for the lack of amenities! Jason and Cameron (the owners/ managers) were super friendly and very accommodating. I broke my surf board the second day down there and they loaned me a board to use for the... More

We came to Las Olas without a booking after a minor stuff up with respect to which Playa Hermosa we were supposed to be going to. Costa Rica is full of Playa Hermosas - Trip Advisor often lumps them together so make sure you know what the Province is! Had I read the other reviews of this place from non... More

Cost is very low, and expect to stay in a more "surf Hostel" environment with open air rooms, basic bath/showeer and overall very utilitatrian. However for the price you should not exepct much more. The location is fantastic, right on the beach at one of the best surf breaks in Costa Rica. Jason, Cameron and the rest of the staff... More

This place is in a prime location - its cheap and given that food is expensive (Aug 2012) it's a nice place to save money BUT when the rains come it quickly becomes a sink hole with a swamp in the bathroom, and a leaky roof that dripped all over my bed. Yea if ur a surfer traveling with dudes... More

A surfers destination, waves for all abilities are at your fingertips! Cristian, Tex, and Nelson, will provide whatever experience you desire! The post surf food is fabulous...more ahi tuna then you can imagine! The hotel has a laid back vibe..the owners Cameron and Jason see to that. Will return this year for a 7th trip and can say every year... More
