We had a wonderful time while staying here. Close to town, groceries, super staff and Danny is a wonderful manager! Breakfast on the deck is unbeatable! Relaxing, clean and a great hang out for your time in Bocas!
The one downfall is the trash. Most was from the neighbors and then we saw the kitchen staff throw fruit out the window into the water right under of balcony.

Room tip: We had room 8 which had it's own balcony and could lay in bed with a view of the islands!

Hotel Olas is a wonderful gem. It's the perfect location to take in all the surrounding areas of Bocas. It is conveniently located 2 blocks from the main area so that you can enjoy a quiet nights sleep. The staff are wonderful and helpful. Olas caters to young and old, couples, singles and families and all feel welcome. The dock sits over the water and guests mingle and talk for hours. The food in bocas has been a wonderful surprise and mostly has been far superior to Panama City. We have not had a bad meal. The rooms are basic and clean. All have A/C and private baths. Remember you are coming to bocas this is not Manhattan. It's a fun filled town with beautiful beaches on all the islands. As they say......when in Rome!!!!

My boyfriend and I took a trip here and only planned on staying one night, but after seeing what there was on offer on the islands and bocas town, we decided to stay one more night, unfortunately we were told at check in that the place was full but luckily for us another group was a no show and so the lovely receptionist informed us that we could stay if we wanted and at $65 including breakfast, it was the best decision we made! The hotel is quiet, clean and in a family neighbourhood. I was worried about the bar being open and from the pictures of people hanging around that this place would be like the other hostels around town and that we'd have trouble finding a place to relax, but that was definitely not the case. Would definitely stay here again, don't expect bells and whistles but you will get clean towels, sheets, and a safe place to rest before you head out around the town! Thank you olas!

Wife and I lasted 3 days in Bocas Del Toro before fleeing back to Boquete. Besides Bocas being the largest trash dump in Panama this hotel offered sanity and security. Its the last building on the strip. Its not a Hilton but it IS a clean safe friendly spot to be. Breakfast is good free internet and laundry service for 10 bucks a load. 55 bucks a night includes breakfast. The common areas on the water side of hotel is great to meet other travelers. Word of caution however, be prepared to see very poor people living in horrible shacks and the raw sewage near the cemetery and beach. Avoid the local beach its a polluted disaster zone. Notice ALL the businesses for sale. Not a good sign.
