    "Excellent location"

    I have stayed there 3x, and each time it was a dream. Excellent location, great breakfasts, fun people, and an easy drive for me from Cancun airport. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Tulum.

    "Oasis of calm and sustainability in Tulum"

    The property is beautiful and incredibly far up Tulum beach, so you have the beachfront virtually to yourself. The eco-credentials at Olas are impeccable, and you can learn a lot about sustainable living by talking to Jimmy about the choices he's made.

    "Truly feels like a casa"

    Incredible experience. Very personal, the staff was amazing and it was the furthest hotel from all of the noise. Family style seating, all the amenities you need and nothing you don’t. We had the perfect night rest with the perfect day to match.

    "Environmentally driven and conscious hotel"

    Can’t wait to come back to this environmentally driven and conscious hotel (no generator!) nestled in the middle of the magical jungle that is Tulum! Enjoyed the sound of waves, the inclusive breakfast, and the staff.
