Me and my husband (both 30 years) stayed 5 nights at Vista de Olas. It´s a good place with an amazing ocean view. The thing is that the hotel is like a "After beach" place were people stay for a couple of hours in the afternoon having some drinks. When the sunset is over a lot of people leave for the restaurnats nearby and some of them stay for the bbq. The bbq ends at 9 o´clock and after that there was nothing to do than go to bed.
We stayed at Vista de Olas in Feruary and there were not many other people staying there. We liked the place but we think that 5 days was a to much. Every day we walked to another hotel (Luz de Vida) located on the beach in Santa Theresa and bougt day passes for the beach and poolarea for 10 dollars incl. lunch. It was a 4-5 km walk, This place was great and located close to many good restaurants.
We think that Vista De Olas is a little bit over charged. You don´t get that much for the money. The breakfast is simple (scrambeld eggs, fruits, toast, lemonade and coffe), the rooms are clean and nice but nothing extra and the staff is friendly but not always available.
If yoú´re looking for a calm and peaceful place Vista De Olas is perfect but a little bit expensive.
