Lonely Planet review
Shining like a beacon from the southwestern tip of Bocas town, the three-story, very yellow 'Waves' has 25 clean polished-wood rooms with electric hot-water showers, though rooms are rather small and pretty basic. The biggest draw here is the exceptional ocean-front lounge and restaurant. Offers tours (US$25 to US$35) and bicycle rentals through its travel agency, Olas Tours.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Olas and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Bocas del Toro Town.
