Outdoor joint down an alley full of locals. I love it, not fancy, cold beer, good food and excellent service. Beer is cheaper than anyplace in town at $2 or less. I will likely frequent this place daily. Highly recommend.

There's nowhere I've been that has offered gourmet local cuisine and simple, perfect accommodations, made to order by locals that live to surf and enjoy the simple beauty of the pure vida. My room offered a morning view of the huge, incredible surf and the sound of the waves and the easy reggae soundtrack lulled me into deep wonderful sleep... More

Great little thatched hut right on the beach. We were quite surprised at the wonderful homeade pancakes. They aren't the big fluffly pancakes but rather a more natural nice pancake. The Gallo Pino was a bit dissapointing as it was quite dry. The batidos were nice and natural and not too sweet. The service for us was better than average... More

We went there for lunch, made that mistake because it was the first place you find if you come walking on the beach from Jaco. There were 3 employees but only the cook was actually working and paying attention to guests. The two girls -one Fiorella and one Amanda- were too busy talking to some friends to actually work. They... More

A group (9) of us went here for lunch a few days ago. The food was pretty good - we loved the fish sandwiches, but our Tico family said the food was 'OK' as they got Casado with steak. The location is right on the brag and a nice atmosphere. Staff was very friendly and multilingual, able to fluently speak... More

The breakfast is dreamy! Pancakes, yogurt (sort of juice though), granola, fresh fruit, wafles, batidos, eggs, coffee, sandwiches, everything you need really... Right on the beach. Friendly staff. They also have lunch and diner but we didnt try it.

I stayed here with my boyfriend in February 2014. Neither of us surf -- but we loved it just the same. True, our room had no AC (I understand other rooms do), was separated from the office by a thin wall, had the worst mattress ever, and abutted a noisy kitchen at the restaurant next door. It was basic in... More

I came here in January with 7 friends, about half of us surfers and the other half not surfers. January is right at the beginning of Costa Rica's dry season, and not only is it HOT, but it is HUMID! I stayed in the sky box at the main house and my friends occupied the two rooms below. Only one... More

One of the best trips I have taken! Both Jason and Raffa were very professional and made us feel at home! If you like to surf and enjoy good food, I highly recommend Las Olas Hotel and Restaurant! Enjoy!
