Great little thatched hut right on the beach. We were quite surprised at the wonderful homeade pancakes. They aren't the big fluffly pancakes but rather a more natural nice pancake. The Gallo Pino was a bit dissapointing as it was quite dry. The batidos were nice and natural and not too sweet. The service for us was better than average... More

We went there for lunch, made that mistake because it was the first place you find if you come walking on the beach from Jaco. There were 3 employees but only the cook was actually working and paying attention to guests. The two girls -one Fiorella and one Amanda- were too busy talking to some friends to actually work. They... More

A group (9) of us went here for lunch a few days ago. The food was pretty good - we loved the fish sandwiches, but our Tico family said the food was 'OK' as they got Casado with steak. The location is right on the brag and a nice atmosphere. Staff was very friendly and multilingual, able to fluently speak... More

The breakfast is dreamy! Pancakes, yogurt (sort of juice though), granola, fresh fruit, wafles, batidos, eggs, coffee, sandwiches, everything you need really... Right on the beach. Friendly staff. They also have lunch and diner but we didnt try it.

I stayed here with my boyfriend in February 2014. Neither of us surf -- but we loved it just the same. True, our room had no AC (I understand other rooms do), was separated from the office by a thin wall, had the worst mattress ever, and abutted a noisy kitchen at the restaurant next door. It was basic in... 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
