We arrived at Hotel Las Olas Beach Resort Oct. 3, 2021 and were booked for 5 nights. The hotel rooms were moldy, outdated, and smelled terrible. The pool had not been cleaned and the grounds were dirty and unkept. It was obvious that Covid had a huge impact on this property and the pictures shown on Trip Advisor do not reflect what the property looks like now. We left after one night and would not recommend this property.

The pool area and will he staff are great. The rooms were comfortable but furniture could use some updating. Good water pressure, hot shower. Food from the restaurant was really good, breakfast included. All in all it was very enjoyable time and the prices are good as well with Jubilado discount.

We visited for the holidays in December 2019. The highlight of our trip to Panama, at least I thought, was going to be Las Olas Beach Hotel Resort. I researched Las Olas. I saw pictures and on-line brochures. I read reviews, focusing on the more positive ones (because I did not want to be disappointed). I was thinking of the excursions offered by the resort that I wanted to go on (see picture). Luckily, my husband suggested we just relax and enjoy the resort instead of trying to figure out which excursion to go on. There were so many choices and we had so little time. Welp, I was disappointed. When we pulled up to the resort, it looked like it needed a fresh coat of paint and a horticulturist or someone with a green thumb. The caged parrot in the front of the property was a bit off-putting but that is just me. I looked to big to be in the cage. My first sign of something being off, we arrived a bit early so we sat by the pool and ordered something to drink (juice for both) and an order of fries for me. I can tell a lot by a restaurant’s fries. It took almost 45 minutes to get our juice and the fries were not warm when they arrived later. To the room...there was a crack on the ceiling near the ceiling fan...an unforgiving and uncomfortable looking crack over the bed. They charged for everything in the room (resorts at least give you coffee free and at times water free...not this place-see picture). Luckily, we purchased water and snacks in David before arriving. I can go on and on. This place has so much potential but the money may not be there for updates or maybe the owners are lax because they know there is no other hotel, motel or resort within 30-45 minutes of that location and on the beach. Those who work there should be commended. They did everything! The waiters and waitresses are seen cleaning around the pool, working the bar and quite possibly cleaning the rooms! That is why it took so long for our juice and my fries...I am assuming. One thing that was commendable...the food. Make sure you pay for meals with your reservation, if you plan to eat on site...it is less complicated since those on-site may be working the dinner guests. If not, drive or walk down a bit. There are beachfront places to eat. I cannot rate them. I did not try them. Would I revisit? If I had no other place to stay because I down there after dark....probably but if there are other options...Nah. I have been to resorts as far away as Fiji and as close as Ecuador (not on a beach...projects directly behind the property behind a fence), no comparison...different levels of resort.

A great stay at a beautiful resort mostly frequented by Panamanians. The pool was perfect, access to the beach easy, food was delicious though service was slow...a good way to enjoy each other's company! Beautiful surroundings. Warm, friendly owners Donna and Juan.

I wanted to really like this place but it just left me wanting. You can tell that when the place first opened it was probably beautiful and bright. But now, it seems that nothing has been updated since that day and it is just drab and dull. The room was clean, but so dated. The comforter was worn in spots and almost had no color left. The pool area was small with not many seats in the sun, but just ok. I have to say the one night I ate dinner there it was absolutely horrible. I took one bite out of it and did not eat another. I have only ever done that one other time in my life, I hate to waste food, but the pasta was inedible. Overall, the stay was doable. It is not a place to go if you have high standards or are high maintenance. You will be 100% let down.
