*Nicely laid out hotel. Relaxing on one of the decks or in one of the hammocks as the sun is setting with hummingbirds buzzing around you is a pretty nice experience.
*Ben, the manager, is a very friendly helpful (english speaking) person.
*The complimentary breakfast is very basic but for a small fee I would recommend the shakshooka (eggs poached in a tomato based sauce).
*The snorkelling directly beneath the hotel is surprisingly good.
*Wifi is difficult to pick up on the 2nd and 3rd floors.
*The air-con didn't work in our room, but it wasn't a problem as we were given a different room immediately when we brought it to the attention of the staff.
*The hotel is pretty dated and as other reviewers have said, you will find little critters like geckos running around the walls of your room at night... but that comes with the territory when you're in the Caribbean and, in my opinion, it just adds to the experience.
*Although I can't give Hotel Olas a high score for things like 'cleanliness' and 'wi-fi availability throughout the hotel' all in all I enjoyed my time there and would stay there again.
