Having lived in Boquete for a year, I have no idea what took us so long to discover Las Olas Beach Resort! We enjoyed the pleasant drive over and then we were so happy to find such a delightful hotel in a pretty setting. The warm reception that we received from Donna, the owner, made us feel like royalty!

We had a wonderful, peaceful 8 night stay at Las Olas Resort in June. This is a beautiful, large property with lovely grounds, pool large and beach. It is a close drive from David and I’d recommend staying at Las Olas versus the loud, crowded city. The rooms are large and comfortable, but they do need some updating which the... More

From being assisted before I even arrived to my reluctant exit back to the "world," the owners and staff at this lovely resort provided me with a perfect respite. The sound of las olas (the waves) soothed the savage beast that had begun to crowd its way into my life. The food was delicious and I was dreaming about what... More

After a 4 day real estate search in Boquete, Las Olas Beach Resort was a welcome find ! We were so glad to be able to relax poolside or by the "Pacific" (las olas translates to "the waves") and we enjoyed walks along the empty beach. The two pools were pristine and an added relaxation offering was the well stocked... More

What a Big Disappointment! First, the good: The black sand beach was nice & the pool & bar was nice also. The restaurant at the resort was good! Now the Bad: The room was so out of date & looked like a budget motel room, bathroom was small & old & the bedding must have been from the 80's. The... More

If you like sitting on the beach or your patio, watching the surf, this is a place for you. A family has turned their hundred-year old cattle ranch into a beach resort, well done. Must have been a great place 20 years ago, now it appears quite outdated, but the price is adequate. And despite our personal opinion, we are... More

We stayed for one night on way down from Costa Rica border. We selected this hotel rather than staying in David - a very good choice!! The hotel is on a miles long beach (surfing, not swimming) has really nice facilities, really good restaurant, and very friendly and accommodating staff.
