This hotel was wonderful, nice a clean very friendly staff who helped us plan day trips. They rent bikes for the day for only 5 dollars, and on each floor of the hotel are decks with seating to eat on, or read a book. They have installed a camera in the doorway for safety and each door has a lock....

I stayed at Olas with my family 2 teenagers and my husband from July 16-19. The hotel is good for the price. Comfortable beds, AC, cable, and hot water. Nothing fancy just what you need after a long day of activities. It includes breakfast (coffee and a small muffin). Though they have an amazing fruit plate with yougurt and granola...

Place is nice for the price. Our first room really smelled but luckily we were moved. Beds are not that comfortable. Owner/manager/person in charge of the hotel was a complete bully and verbally abusive to his staff. The first mornin after our arrival we heard a man screaming at the lady in the reception as we walked closer he stopped...

We are backpackers, so we came to Bocas with no reservations. Checked out couple of properties. They were either expensive, or on a main drag (too loud), or just dirty. Then we decided to check out Hotel Olas, which is located just off the main drag with it's bars/restaurants, in the quiet residential area. We got a great price on...

My husband and I were in Bocas Del Toro from June 3 thru June 7, 2012. We stayed a few days in Boquete before coming to Bocas. The first 2 nights we stayed at Koko Resort at the end of the town 15 mins. away on foot. Then we ran into this capper kid, Orlando, at the pier about boat...

This was a nice little place to stay. A/C worked great!! Almost got too cold. ;) Nice patio on the water, as well as another cool sitting area upstairs. A little far from the main drag, but its not too far to walk if you're up to it. Maybe a little bit on the pricey side, but well worth it....

We stayed here for 3 nights. Great place! Price was right, people were VERY nice, and room and bath were clean. There is a wonderful view from the second floor. Lots of humming birds to watch. I would stay here again!!

Hotel Olas, right on the water, is a really nice and clean hotel with great staff and pretty decent water-side bar downstairs. Our room was fantastik, with an incredibly comfortable and soft queen bed, fridge, satellite tv, a/c, waterfront balcony, and HOT water. Definitely our little moment of luxury while travelling around Panama. Unfortunately, without a common kitchen, we decided...

This place was awesome! So cheap for what you get - I stayed for 3 nights with my boyfriend this past February. Our room was literally raised above the ocean - there was a little balcony with an amazing view. Personal washroom. The only thing I would have liked is a better blanket on the bed. The hotel had amazing...

We visited Bocas for 12 days in February. We stayed here for the last three nights of our trip. It was the worst idea ever. Upon check in our, " ocean view" room was occupied by people Olas had taken on a day trip. They forgot we were coming! Our room was not ready til 7pm that night, an entire...
