Had a great relaxing time, easy half to the beach. Best was the people working there. Super friendly and just great people. I plan on going back very soon and definitely staying at Las Olas. And the food was delicious

I'm writing this review a few days after being home, giving myself a chance to reflect on all that we experienced at Cabinas Las Olas. For us this was not just a stay on a local property, but an experience that we will never forget. We absolutely fell in love with Avellanas, but for its own sake I will review...

I was at Playa Avellanas for three weeks and was at Las Olas almost every day. In addition we rented 2 Cabinas for family during part of that time. We thoroughly enjoyed the property and especially the friendly staff. They helped make it a great trip.

It's not the Ritz, but for the price and experience I cannot imagine a better place. Julio and MeMo make you feel like you are right at home. It's a very unique place with monkeys in the trees and one of the best surf breaks in Costa Rica for an intermediate or beginner surfer. The food is simple but delicious....

Stayed 4 places during our trip to Costa Rica and this was by far our favorite. Glad we didn't stay here last or we would never have gone home. Very special place with monkeys in the trees right outside our porch, gorgeous iguanas roaming and in a perfect spot for wonderful surfing. The room was massive and so clean, we...

Take a walk through the mangrove swamps and find a delicious restaurant with very reasonable prices and good food. Laid back. Not easy to find the path thru the trees but worth the walk (head north or to the right- with beach in front of you-when you arrive at playa Avallnas) and look for unmarked trail. Not on the beach...

We came here with few expectations but would definitely return next year. The hotel is a short walk to the beach through a manglar forest that looks like something out of Sleepy Hollow - spooky but very cool at dawn. Our room was large and the bed comfortable, nothing spectacular but everything functioned just right. The staff are true multi-taskers,...

Stopped here for lunch one day as we were driving by.... best fish tacos we've had anywhere we've been so far. Friendly staff and good service .. but who can forget the 'screams' of the howler monkeys while you ate.

Quiet out of the way location. Basic rooms but good food. You will always remember the boardwalk to the beach. But most of all it is the good people who work there. Owner Roche, very nice and accommodating, employees are also very helpful and friendly. There are fancier more luxurious places to stay but I always want to return to...
