One of my favorite stays in Tulum! It’s far enough away from everything to really enjoy the beach and nature and yet still close enough to all the action! The hospitality was beyond and everyone we met at the resort was just lovely. Can’t wait to be back for another visit!

I absolutely adore Olas Tulum! This enchanting eco-friendly boutique retreat, nestled along a secluded stretch of Tulum's pristine beach, is a haven for couples seeking an intimate escape. With only eight thoughtfully designed suites, the villa offers a tranquil and private setting, making it perfect for those who value seclusion. What sets Olas Tulum apart is their commitment to guest privacy, evident in their reservation-only policy that discourages walk-ins. This emphasis on exclusivity ensures an intimate and serene atmosphere throughout your stay. The personalized hosting approach makes you feel less like a client and more like a cherished friend, fostering a warm and welcoming environment. Olas Tulum has become a favorite among like-minded travelers who appreciate the magic of this paradise. The intimate setting and environmental consciousness attract a community of forward-thinking, eco-aware individuals who are ahead of the curve in appreciating the beauty of this sustainable retreat.

Had a wonderful 4 days at Olas. Tulum has blown up over the years since I first visited but this place maintains itself as an oasis away from it all that really tries to be as sustainable as possible. We were really able to disconnect and enjoy the well kept property and beach and enjoy nature. I have not slept better in a year. Breakfast daily was always good and healthy . Terrific staff, Mara, Leo , Zenaida and Victor thank you . If you need to recharge away from the hustle of Tulum look no further.

Olas Tulum is a magical place where time ceases to exist. It's small and intimate, and Jimmy and his crew were so helpful in making recommendations, reservations, and whatever else you might need. I especially liked that it was away from the hustle of beach center, and you didn't hear any noise. Besides being right on the beach and being lulled to sleep by the waves, I can't imagine any place more perfect.

Olas Tulum, formerly Casa de Las Olas as I know it has been a home away from home for nearly a decade. With all of the changes in the region Olas has maintained its secluded charm, sustainability, beautiful location, gorgeous rooms and most importantly the sense of being at home. Olas is always manned by an on-site host who helps navigate travelers throughout authentic eateries, natural treasures and the richness of the area. Guests are warmly greeted upon arrival and each morning gather around the table underneath the palms for hot French press coffee, fresh squeezed juice, homemade granola, yogurt and a Mexican dish to kick start the day. You can truly unwind here, lay low on the property with fresh coconuts, food and drinks or you can be guided to the wonders of the region whether nearby ruins, the magical timelessness of the Sian Kiaan bioreserve which Olas borders and so much more. Don't hesitate to ask questions while you're at your home away from home on a sustainable property - powered by the sun, wind and love for taking care of guests. If you've never been - go. If you've been, go back. Things @ Olas have only gotten richer. Big Thanks to Jimmy, Leo and the crew for always taking care of me like family. I'll be back, Chris

Olas Tulum is a gem on the end of the Beach Road. The hospitality shown by the owner and staff are unparalleled, you instantly feel like you're part of the family, and you are! The rooms are clean, the showers have excellent pressure, the bed is comfortable, and the grounds are beyond what words can describe. Incredibly lush, beautifully serene, completely relaxing, the only sounds you hear are the waves crashing on the beach mere steps away from the communal table where guests enjoy freshly made meals that are local and delicious. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway in Tulum, this should be your first and last stop.

My husband and I stayed here for five days recently and had a wonderful time. We were looking to stay somewhere that was both quiet and relaxing - and a good location for going on adventures nearby. Olas Tulum was perfect for us. The man running the hotel was friendly and well-connected to the local community. He gave us amazing tips for local restaurants and tours! Seriously, every restaurant he pointed us to was fantastic. When we had a small issue with the shower in our room, he took it seriously and fixed the problem immediately. This was mentioned in the welcome package we were sent a few weeks before arriving, but one thing to be aware of this is that hotel is at the end of the busy and narrow resort road. If you are planning to go on adventures or eat at restaurants off the resort road (which I'd recommend), you should consider renting a car.

My wife and I enjoyed our third visit to Olas Tulum this past weekend. We honeymooned here 12 years ago and make it our aim to get back as often as we can. The accommodations make us feel at home, at ease and completely able to unplug and recharge. The entire staff, this visit led by the fantastic Mara, are there as friends and guides to help make the stay peaceful, enjoyable and carefree. The quiet, unassuming space is a welcomed respite from the outside world.

My recent stay at Las Olas was a delightful experience, and I can't speak highly enough of the exceptional hospitality extended by Jimmy and the entire staff. Nestled amidst the vibrant Tulum scene, this hidden gem exudes a tranquil ambiance that offers a genuine sanctuary from the city's hustle and bustle. The serene surroundings and the unwavering attention to service truly create a haven for anyone in search of both peace and a heartfelt welcome while exploring Tulum. I wholeheartedly recommend Las Olas for a memorable Tulum getaway.
