First thing, the location of this hotel is great! We got the room with balcony but the room was located inside the complex, so basically, the view from our balcony was the back of another building. That was OK with us. The balcony did make the room better as it provided us with some open space and a place to... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights. The staff seemed nice enough and helpful, although none of them speak English so sometimes communication was a challenge. They have a small but nice pool. Other guests who had been there longer than us told us that it could get very noisy at times because of the location on the... More

Lovely location right on the front overlooking the beach. We had a large, bright room on the 3 rd floor with a balcony. Very clean, fresh towels every day. Plenty of warm water. There is a pool but no one seems to use it , but why would you with the beach so close? We would stay there again

We stayed at Las Olas for 2 nights in early February. Our room was in the back, but comfortable enough and clean. Because of its location, there wasn't through airflow so we did need the air-con even in February. The hotel was secure and was located close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The owner helped us with where to... More

The cabanas are too cute and each with their own porch and hammock. I could hear the ebb and flow of the surf as I slept. Each morning I would arise and walk the 40 steps to the beach where I enjoyed an inexpensive breakfast at one of the many beach restaurants. Next, I would relax in one of the... More

I stayed at las olas for a month this summer, and it was fantastic. Manuel, Maria and the entire staff are wonderful people. A friend stayed in the cabanas and I stayed in the dorms. The dorms have SCREENS on the windows, which means no bugs. I think the fans are run off of a nuclear reactor:). There are NO... More

Spent two nights here. The room was very spacious and so was the bathroom. When checking in, we noticed 3 guys checking out with their legs red with buttons/bites. Unfortunately I left with about 30 bed bug bites. Theres also a required 500 pesos deposit...

We stayed at Hotel Las Olas for 9 days and found it to be comfortable (aside from the heat) and perfect location... Northern end of Zicatela where the surf is, great cheap beach cafes, mini mart 20 meters down the road and a short taxi to anywhere else. We negotiated a cheaper price per night for the length of time... More
