We were scheduled to stay here 2 years ago in September, but the 2017 fires had ravaged the area 2 days before our arrival and we had to forego the trip. Two years later, we planned the same vacation and were not disappointed. This is a lovely boutique hotel where the entire staff is so accommodating and the environment so quaint and peaceful, you will pinch yourself to be sure you are not dreaming. All of your needs have been addressed before you even arrive, as well as a gourmet breakfast to die for. We can not say enough great things about The Olea Hotel. You just have to experience it for yourself.

My fiance and I had an incredible stay here! We didn't want to leave. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves and we felt so catered to. You will feel relaxed the moment you get here. Breakfast is great, and I highly recommend getting the massage - legitimately the best massage I have had, what a great addition to the hotel. We are already thinking of when we will be back and will recommend Olea to our friends and family!

We have only wonderful things to say about our stay at Olea! From our check in and warm welcome from Kent, hospitality from everyone, great recommendations, and exceptional breakfast, it was such a delightful stay! Close to everything but also in a tucked away relaxing location, with so many inviting sitting areas to relax and enjoy!

This is a nice modest little place with excellent service and knowledgable staff, and generous snacks and quite enjoyable wine included; I never had this anywhere else before. However, the words "elegant" or "upscale" seem inappropriate for this somewhat dated and modest establishment. If you have a view of the pool you also have a view of the ongoing construction to replace fire damaged structures, with hammering all day. The tub is plastic rather than porcelain, e.g. The "gourmet" breakfast is ok but not impressive in quality, nor expertly executed: the fruit was somewhat tired and other ingredients were less delightful than I expected from the raves here. The location is on a local road that has regular traffic. The price we paid was also out of line with what is received. I see one can find much better rates from the various online bundlers like expedia, but we did not do so. From the photographs and reviews, I expected upscale and elegant and was disappointed, so I would not return. For considerably less money however, such as is currently advertised, it would be reasonable. The people are very nice, even delightful, so if you realize it is modest, not upscale, and pay accordingly, I think it would be a nice choice.
