Unbelievable setting sets Las Olas apart. Spectacular volcanic beach that is other wise isolated. Great pool, food, and setting. We spent New Years and the time before and after and will be back. Great party on NY eve on the beach with fireworks, dancing, and great people.

This resort is very beautiful. Nice restaurant, two swimming pools, right on the ocean, beautiful beach, friendly and co-operative staff. The rooms are reasonably priced and very nice, although small. The tiny patios look right out onto the ocean. Unfortunately it is very far out in the middle of nowhere (about a half hour from David) and the road is... More

OK, this "resort" may be lacking in many respects, but I don't know of any other decent beach hotel where you can spend as little as we did per night and be able to open your door to a view of the Pacific, and pop a cerveza on your private veranda. We stayed there midweek in mid December, and the... More

You can walk miles on the beach...The only thing is there are no places to stop and have a drink after awhile. Low tide is great, it is so flat... Enjoyed the pool and all of the helpful people there. There are a couple of local places next to this place that we enjoyed going to.

This place is VERY hard to get to - way, way, way out there. Thank goodness for the signs on the roads the hotel has made with arrows, because you would never find it. It was like a ghost town and I understand why. The beach is NOT a "black sand" beach. I've been to black sand beaches in Hawaii.... More

Yes, we are a little remote. This, for some, is a negative aspect. For others seeking solitude and relaxation, this is definitely a positive thing! I'm sorry we were further out than you would have preferred. We offer a multitude of signage along the route to Las Olas to make arrival as easy as possible for our guests. Regarding the... More

This place has so much potential but it is a journey just to get here and I question whether it is worth it. I enjoyed seeing the sugar cane plantations on the trip to the resort and I loved the natural surroundings- palm trees, black sand beach-which make this area awesome. Bedding, bath and amenities could certainly be improved on.... More
