My boyfriend and I stayed here in April of this year. We were looking to discount from the world and enjoy a vacation away. This is a place for the self-sufficient traveler and adventurer. Our desire on this vacation was to explore Costa Rica by day, spend time on the beach and have a nice place to go back to at night and this was the perfect place for that. The hotel grounds are very clean, well kept and safe. Our room was cleaned everyday and the staff was always nice and courteous. The view from the pool is incredible and I enjoyed every sunset from there while we were there. Yes, the pool area is open to the public and you get a lot of younger people for Happy Hour which for some would be annoying, but we ended up finding very entertaining and made for a good laugh. A simple breakfast is served every morning and you can have dinner at the hotel in the evenings from the grill. One day we were given an ATV tour from Roger's son to Montezuma waterfalls which was extremely fun. He was a great tour guide and very informative. We ended up renting the ATV for the duration of our stay which made getting around the country side extremely easy and fun. Another day, Roger setup a canopy tour for us. We ended up becoming friends with Roger, his wife Heidi and their sons by the end of the trip. We talked to them a lot about all their adventures and they gave us good recommendations for day trips we could take and place to see. We had a great time at Vista de Olas and would go back in a heart beat.
