We were recommended to Casa De Olas by some one in Puerto Viejo, once he had shown us the pictures we were sold. We spent the rest of our trip through Costa Rica looking forward to Casa de Olas. When we arrived we weren't disappointed.
We were warmly welcomed by Fred and the rest of the staff. Our room was absolutely beautiful. It was a large, private with plenty of space and had lots of little luxuries (like fluffy towels!!) that added to our experience.
Our plan was to stay 3 nights, and then 7, and then 9 and when we finally left....we decided to go back again on our way back down to Costa rica. In total we spent 11 nights at Casa De Olas and had the time of our lives.
The food is great, breakfast is included which was an nice treat. The family meals on an evening were cheap and added that little bit of home comfort that is sometimes missing when you have been travelling for a while.
All I can say to anyone looking to find a hostel in San Juan Del Sur is head to Casa De Olas, we met some amazing people, ate great food, drank far too much (Shark attack and finger banging!), surfed, drank a little more and made friends for life.
Thank you Fred, Carla and Buzz.
