The hotel is located on a hill above the harbor – the views of the lake were lovely, yet it was nice and quiet in the evenings. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the German owner. There are 7 suites, each uniquely and lovingly designed; we were in #5, “El Cielo”. Breakfast wasn’t included.

This place is fantastic. Each abode individually designed with amazing views over the lake.

We stayed in la tortuga (turtle) and were completely wowed by the two levels, huge bed, views, hammocks on the upper level, wood burning stove and kitchenette.

The place also boasted many private outdoor areas, where you could chill and relax in the hammocks in the sunshine.

We also enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and the resident alpacas.

It's a little more expensive than most hostels in Bolivia, but better than most hotels. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful, clean, exceptional value for money. It has a nice garden and is a perfect place to take a rest. Each room is unique, rustic, stylish, well equipped and confortable. Suite number 5, El Cielo (The Sky), has a spectacular view both during the day and at night.

Las Olas was the highlight of our 2 week Bolivian vacation! The grounds, the rooms, the llamas, the view...completely perfect! We didn't want to leave our room! The wood burning stoves, the beautiful colors, giant windows overlooking the lake and incredible, unique rooms are not to be missed! We stayed longer than planned (something many of the reviewers state) as you don't want to leave this oasis!

It is really as seen in photos. Very pretty, great views, big stylish rooms and spaces. A good place to spend a few days relaxing before or after a difficult stretch of travel.
Only two minor comments: The reception person was usually hard to find, and it is a bit of a hike uphill.

Treated ourselves to a hotel/apartment in Copacabana which was ideal after partying in La Paz. Stayed in the castle with 3 floors and 3 big beds. Had awesome views across the bay hence slightly higher up the hill but worth the climb. Stayed in for 2/3 of nights with take away which with the fire going was awesome. The place had a hot tub and hammocks so ideal relaxing place. The local shops for breakfast were within 100m so a cheap way to eat well. Only downside is being furthest from the reception meant the wifi was poor.

The cabins are built with a complete heat insulation of polystyrene inside the roof, as well as in the walls below the facade. We preheat the water with big solar panels and than feed it into the electric boiler to guarantee very hot water 24 hours a day. We recycle all our washing machine water with an automatic sprinkler to wet our extensive gardens, and we also collect any plastic or glass bottle left behind to be recycled. ... more   less
