Everything here was clean and well maintained. We had such an amazing time in Mal Pais and Vista de Olas was the perfect place to stay. You wouldn't need to leave the grounds if you didn't want to, but there is so much to see and do in the area. This place is a little like being at camp. There... More

As a couple who lead a pretty hectic life, we were very much looking forward to getting away. Vista de Olas is a true hidden treasure. A beautiful, small resort with a relaxed vibe, down to earth owners who helped with all of our needs - from planning a fun day or just hanging out. The food was perfect, like... More

Three cheers for living social! If it was not for this deal, we would not have found this hidden gem!! We were here March 15 to March 23. We bought an extra day and it was so worth it. I am not sure where to begin, but will try. We arrived before check it, but Roger and his staff made... More

Our family of three stayed here for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. In short order you'll be on a first-name basis with the owner and his staff. They are very accommodating and truly want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The room, the pool and the view were beautiful. I would definitely stay here again!

We were very pleased with our stay at Visa de Olas. The highlight was of course the views from the restaurant and pool, from where we watched a beautiful sunset every night while sipping delicious cocktails. The pool was well maintained, the breakfasts were varied and tasty, and the BBQ dinner was also very good. Our villa (#1) was well... More

My husband and I stayed at Vista de Olas for 7 days and it was a wonderful trip. The property itself is beautiful and intimate with those incredible views. Excellent drinks and BBQ steaks for dinner. 3 friendly dogs and a cat that periodically came to visit our room. We rented an ATV and drove all over the lower peninsula.... More
