casa de las Olas is both barebones and beautiful, a perfect balm for Tulum which can feel overdeveloped. It is at the end of the road but close to everything, quiet, unbelievably beautiful views of the turquoise water. There's no AC, no TVs, no chocolates on your pillow, no clutter. Instead: simple beautiful wood furniture, incredible views, carefully chosen details... More

Casa de las Olas is perfect for someone who is coming to Tulum wanting an alternative to a resort experience. What I loved about Casa de las Olas is how intimate the space and feel is. When I went, there were three women looking after things, and every single one of them was extremely knowledgeable about what to do, where... More

It was a fantastic experience staying at Casa de las Olas . The hosts do everything to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Breakfast is delicious and great experience in their communal table. We received the best recommendations of where to visit, dine and party.

Prior to our arrival, I was certain that in spite of everything that I'd read, there was no way that Casa de las Olas could have lived up to all of the hype. That being said, I love being humbled (even on vacation). Truly, there is nowhere else worth staying in Tulum. I've been raving about our time at Olas... More

As others have said, Casa de las Olas is incredible. The rooms, people and location can't be beat. This truly is a special place.

I've stayed at Olas almost half a dozen times, and each time is better than the last. Sam runs Olas like her own home, and the priority of the guest is very apparent.
