Can't recommend this place enough. The staff were so nice and the service was great. It's clean, the food is good, the staff is great. They helped us plan outings, when we were there we had surf lessons, went zip lining, horseback riding, snorkeling, fishing and hiking. The surfing is great for beginners and medium surfers. Bigger waves in the morning, the afternoon is great for beginners and the bottom is mostly sand and just a few rocks. The beach is a quick walk down a cool boardwalk (hold on to the little kids though, not dangerous but would be a pain if they went off the boardwalk), and once you get to the beach it's great. Would definitely recommend this place.

I hesitate to write this review for concern that this special place will become even more popular! This is the best spot In Playa Avellanos. Nothing fancy if you’re looking for upscale, but spacious and clean and just a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. There are several cabanas with a deck and hammock. The monkeys seem to be attracted to this place as well. They have a great little restaurant/bar with great food and drinks. All of the staff and the owner are very friendly and gracious. We’ve been coming here for about 15 years and Will continue to every time we come to Costa Rica .

Loved our daily visits to Cabinas Las Olas for breakfast and dinner. The staff is AMAZING. Julio is such a great guy - he gave us some amazing recommendations for the area. We highly recommend a surf lesson with Julio. We will always visit when we come to Playa Avellanas to say hello to Julio. Also want to say that we loved our morning chats with Johnny who waited on us for breakfast. He is a great kid! We have tried many breakfast restaurants but this is by far our favorite. We found it because my husband stays here on his surfing trips. It is a perfect place to stay for surfing trips. The wooden walkway to the beach is amazing and quite enjoyable. Anyone who complains about it does not enjoy the outdoors. The beach at the end of the walk is pure paradise! No crowds and beautiful sand and waves. See you next hear Julio and Johnny.

Wow, beautiful place, If you want the Marriott, with everything plowed over and paved and fancy pools and all that crap, go to New York City. If you are looking for peace, relaxation, great food, drinks, awesome walk to the beach, monkeys in the trees and iguanas running around, with owls and all kinds of life, place in the jungle then this is it. Food is spectacular. Drinks are the best we have ever had. Josue' is a master waiter and bartender. Nobody can make a better Daiquiri, Pina Colada, or Mohito. All of the crew was super friendly and went out of their way to help us any way they could. Great surf instructors as well Than you too Juan. All speak english as well. Great little shop for all surfing needs, boards too.

Rustic rooms, in the jungle. iguanas, monkey's and wild life abundant. Walkways to the beach are a bit of a hike, however the walk through the mangroves is magical and a perfect spot on the beach called Lola's is 10 minutes away. The main attraction being a 700 pound pig who digs the surf. what really made the place shine were the people who work there. Ramone, Julio and the owner Roger were terrific hosts. Kind friendly and acommodating. To top it off, the food we had was sensational. Fresh tasty and well prepared. Thank you las olas.
