This hotel is substandard in every aspect. Rooms are bare, no decoration, old, rusty fans, old dirty curtain, asbestos metal roof with no insulation from heat, nothing of beauty whatsoever. The only nice thing about our room was the view of the beach. Surf board rental, only 2 available, one broken! If you break a fin its $30,,, but the...

I met the owners, Sylvia and Memo, of Olazul two years ago after stumbling upon their relaxed beach-front hotel/restaurant during a lazy evening stroll down the beach. Their hospitality blended with the ocean breeze blowing through the open air,low-key restaurant beckoned my friends and I to stay for a few cold beers. Since then, I've returned nearly a dozen times...

Olazul is directly located on the shore of las Penitas. From the restaurant just a few steps to the beach. The place has a three cabins and a dorm. We stayed in a cabin for two nights. Cabin was clean and spacious. Beds were fine. Own little porch with hammock. No ocean view though. We slept very well in the...

The person (Marc) whom I assume was the manager that we booked the 'hotel' room with did not show up at all, it appears that he doesn't show up much. The staff didn't seem to even know who Marc was. In any case it is not a hotel. One level buildings are cabanas or motels. The rooms are overpriced (at...

Owner was very friendly and helpful, as were the staff. Private cabinas were small but clean and comfortable. Shower area was quite nice. There seemed to be more bugs around this hotel compared to one we stayed at down the street the night before. I'd have to say however, that at $40/night for the cabina, with a fan (no A/C:...

We stayed here for a weekend and our hut was clean and comfortable and the communal areas (retaurant and pool) were quiet and relaxed - the beach here is beautiful too and the views of the beach at sunset are stunning. All in all, a lovely weekend.

Very nice and quiet place with splendid wiew towards the pacific beaches and horizon. Beautiful sunset. No mosquitos (there were millions of them just 1 km longer south but I think that they hated the small breeze coming in from the sea). When we stayed there late novembre we were almost alone on the beaches. Good food for all meals...

This is a great place to just relax. Good food, right on the beach. Great option for those with transportation as it is a ways out of the town. That said, there is really no big reason to go into town which consists of several small restaurants and some other hotels. No real activity except fisherman and mangrove tour. We...

we stayed for 5 very relaxing days, the little huts are designed with a lot of attention to detail and very cute and cosy. Food and service in the restaurant right on the beach are really good. The owners help with organizing pretty much anything you can think of wanting to do (horse back riding, nature and volcano tours, surfing,...

“we had a cabana. it was a bit tight with three people and our daughter was cramped on the rudimentary cot but we were glad for the air conditioning. the shower barely worked but the outside one near the pool was better and i used that to get salt water and sand off.”
