Staff was great. Room nice with a wonderful A/C. Bed was a tiny bit lumpy but comfortable overall. There were 3 of us in a room and did not feel cramped. Our balcony door didn't shut well or lock. Notified the front desk and they sent someone to inspect it right away. It was fixed in less than 20 minutes!...

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights after leaving the Hotel Aldea de Bazar. This place is in an excellent location, right in the middle of the Zicatela strip - you have easy access to all the bars, restaurants, taxis, a currency exchange and ATMs. The rooms are average, so don't expect any luxury, but they're very tidy and...

The staff is very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are clean, with balcony and air condition. The hotel has the perfect location on Playa Zicatela. Close to bars, restaurants and grocery stores. Zicatela is not the beach for swimming, but with a 5 minute taxi ride, you can find beaches perfect for snorkeling and swimming.

We have stayed here 2 times now. The first visit we left hotelito Swiss oasis as it was not what was advertized.

I have been to Olas Altas 4 times, the main reasons being the restaurant attached to it, its relative quiet despite the closeness to the main road, and the rather large swimming pool that I had more often to myself than one would expect. As others mentioned, the staff DOES NOT speak English, but is nice. Watch out for the...

A couple of us decided to do a ride to Puerto Escondido (from Bucerias). I had booked a double room with a roll-away request. Upon arrival (after 4 days on the road) we were told the room we had reserved wasn't large enough for the extra bed. The manager, Carlos, was called. He immediately handled the situation, changing us to...

We booked this place at the front desk the night before As we wanted a hotel right on the beach to surf as much as we could. The man took our details booked our rooms.

This is a very simple hotel. No luxury, no little details. However is clean and cheap. Great for the people that want to enjoy the nighlife in Zicatela. If you are looking for a quiet zone... this is not the place. Is sourrounded by bars and nightclubs. Consider that internet service in Puerto is really bad. Not even with the...

This mid range hotel is in a fantastic location on the main strip and opposite the beach in Playa Zicatela. It is surrounded by a variety of great restaurants and the surf break is directly across the road. We were given a free drink on arrival. There is a large tiled pool down the side of the hotel (although has...

Great location however staff were unfriendly and unhelpful and the rooms where over priced. The southern side of the hotel has street lights outside the windows which lights up the room dramatically, even with the curtains down. Also the wifi constantly drops out in the rooms.

“It appears as though the more expensive rooms had safes, and were away from the side of the hotel's pool that would provide a bit quieter afternoons when the pool was open.”
