    We liked the bar / eating area with the hammocks.

    We could only get wifi in our room, not that this was a major problem.

    Staff were mostly friendly and the view created a very tranquil setting

    Breakfast took far too long and there could have been more good options

    Excellent place. Conveniently located away from the confusion of the main street yet very close. Nice building built over the water with a great terrace at water level where a very good breakfast is served. On the upper levels there are other smaller and quieter longes. Cute decoration. Some of the rooms have great views of the sea. Loved the hammocks hanging from the balcony. Would not hesitate and book it again!

    The staff here really made your stay great, we come to Bocas Town regularly and usually stay in small hotels/ hostels. This place had a wonderful patio deck over the water and friendly staff who took very good care of the guests and kept everyone smiling and laughing. i recommend it to anyone traveling to Bocas.

    Olas is a really nice hostel with friendly and very helpful staff and the location is very beautiful. No reason to complain!

    The Hotel is fantastic, situated in Bocas town on stilts in the water, not close to the very noisy water Taxis. Brilliant service and management always willing to help, great breakfasts (you must try the Shakshuka) and amazing views of sunset - highly highly recommend.

    Nicely laid out hotel. Relaxing on one of the decks or in one of the hammocks as the sun is setting with hummingbirds buzzing around you is a pretty nice experience. Ben, the manager, is a very friendly helpful (english speaking) person. The complimentary breakfast is very basic but for a small fee I would recommend the shakshooka (eggs poached in a tomato based sauce). The snorkeling directly beneath the hotel is surprisingly good. Although I can't give Hotel Olas a high score for things like 'cleanliness' and 'wi-fi' all in all I enjoyed my time there and would stay there again.

    Wi-fi is difficult to pick up on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The air-con didn't work in our room, but it wasn't a problem as we were given a different room immediately when we brought it to the attention of the staff. The hotel is pretty dated and as other reviewers have said, you will find little critters like geckos running around the walls of your room at night... but that comes with the territory when you're in the Caribbean and, in my opinion it just adds to the experience.

    The familiar ambience and fast service when needed.

    Our stay was to short to experience that.

    View from the terrace.

    bad soundproofing of the room. We had a room at the ground floor and it was noisy (night club/bars closed to hotel and people who come back late). Breakfast is very light (coffee/tea, one bad (not natural) orange juice and a muffin).

    loved the hammock on the deck and the deck itself. Great coffee... the reception speaks English well. bikes for rent were great... and cheap. Yoga classes next door. beautiful view of the water... saw a manta ray, starfish, and lots of hummingbirds buzz around here.

    A/C in my room (#22) did not work well at all ... very lumpy pillows. Payment methods need to be monitored better... I paid per night, and at the end when I checked out they said I still owed money. I had no way to prove I had paid, they had no way to prove that I didn't. so make sure you get them to sign something or have some sort of proof of payment.

    Ben the manager was great! Very friendly and hekpful. Loved shashuka for breakfast. Was my first try and addicted now. Hotel is nice and quiet and the sunsets are out if this world. Very homely and comfortable.

    Some of the staff were a bit unfriendly and unhelpful.

    Having an evening swim and drinking a beer watching the sunset - we enjoyed the terasse. Quiet area, some minutes away from the party.

    Only a rudimental breakfast included. Would expect more than coffee, juice and a muffin for that price. The breakfast you can buy looks good.

    The deck on the second floor was fabulous for lounging. Overlooks the sea.

    Air conditioner was very noisy.

    Great chill place to stay. The hammocks and bar in the back are really nice for hanging out in the evening. The staff were very easy-going and it was very easy to book a tour from there.

    Very quiet place, not direct in the center of Bocas, but easy to go there. Good and cheap tours offered by Hotel.

    If you do not book with it might be possible that they say there is no more room available, but it is via booking...

    Location on the water great. Trips booked from reception are good valve and very handy as they leave from the hotel waterfront.

    Food is poor but plenty of options on your doorstep
