"Hotel needing many improvements"
Hotel under new ownership so call first before staying to see if they've made improvements to the rooms. Our ac leaked, toilet handle and seat broken, sink had no drain stopper. Bathroom very unclean and beds very old and noisy. But staff so very genuinely sweet!

"Recently bought and doing the upgrades"
The hotel will be great after the upgrades (new AC, mattresses, and replacement of outdated sinks toilets etc.) for a family or people trying to have a nice, safe place for an average price. I think that a basic breakfast of some toast and fruit should be offered free but only coffee is. The new owners are nice and helpful and committed to making the hotel a place of "Return". My biggest problem is that THIS SITE wants too big of a piece of pie and I had to pay way too much a night extra and there was no option to adjust my group. So, goodbye THIS SITE, you have separated yourself FROM ME.

"Comfortable, friendly hotel on the bus line"
Traveling with a toddler. VERY accommodating for her needs and messes. Two little quiet pools also very young child friendly. Hop on the bus nearby to move between Quepos and Manuel Antonio and other beaches. Reasonably priced and food is pretty good. Older balconies in back are not toddler safe, but it is the quieter section.

"scared off monkeys"
we were both sick & were only able to go to breakfast in the mornings to look for the monkeys that usually showed up at their dining area in the mornings . the monkeys must have heard me coughing all night long & I guess they did not want what I had the monkeys never showed up . the food was the best we had in the 14 days we were in Costa Rica .

"Absolutely Loved It."
Paige and John are the new owners of the hotel as of December and were the most generous and helpful couple that we met on our trip. They helped us with everything from booking reservations to showing us around the area. The hotel is in a great location, just a five minute bus ride from Manuel Antonio and less to Quepos. The rooms are pretty basic but great for the price, and the rest of the staff is very friendly. I don't think we would have been happier staying in a five star hotel.

"Okay but not impressed"
The hotel receptionists are not very friendly. They always seemed bothered when I asked questions. The bar/ restaurant guys and the night security guy were super-nice and helpful. The wifi connection was very poor. The hotel is on the route between Quepos and Manuel Antonio, conveniently located (rides on the bus are about 50 cents a person, they give you change when you pay on the bus). The area is touristy and very expensive, we went to the beach in Manuel Antonio and to dinner in Quepos (at local establishments, called "Soda"s) so the bus was very convenient (it arrives every 20-30 minutes on a precise schedule). The pool at the hotel was okay but for the pool on our side of the building the lights were broken so at night the area was dark. Which is romantic except it attracted bats and cockroaches.The rooms were okay (A/C but otherwise not impressive, I wish we had a small fridge in the room). The bathrooms were clean and the cleaning lady (Bianca, I believe) was great!

We had reservations for 2 rooms 3pax each, with full kichinette.... what we got.... 2 rooms for 2pax no kichinette.... As we were 6...and we need the kitchen.. we asked for the exact product we purchased... we received a TOWER building, 3 levels by stairs, with 3 double beds, and a full kichinette. As we planned to stay just one night, was enough to survive one night...but.. when we got a shower... surprise!!!! ...water come out from the down bathroom... full... imagine (3 women shouting!!) They must do maintenance! They must check reservations from Expedia and give the service previously contracted of better!!

"Blue Monkey- Bad? No need for a spanking here"
The Blue Monkey is a nice place to stay for the money, you must understand if you are paying a discounted price you should NOT expect Los Suenos or Riu Palace. We live in both the United States and in Costa Rica. The hotel is nice, the staff is average and the location is ok- its closer to Quepos than Manuel Antonio. We were looking for an inexpensive location for a nice weekend at the beach- this is the best fit. We had a great time here at the hotel, and everything worked. To the traveler considering this hotel- request a room across the street from the main lobby, we stayed in room 1A with a Kitchen. (I think the rooms were 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A & 3B) This area of the hotel has its own private gated entrance and private pool for maybe 6 rooms- in essence we had our own private pool at night. We were quiet and were in the pool after midnight- no one noticed. There was no additional cost for rooms on this side. Setting expectations is key- based on our criteria we would stay at this hotel for a weekend in the future.

"Decent"
The staff here were amazingly friendly and helpful. The rooms were kept clean. It was unfortunate that the breakfast was not included as it was pricy for what it was. It was very easy to catch a bus to either Manuel Antonio or Quepos as nothing was really within walking distance.

"Deteriorating"
Rooms are not well maintained, air conditioners are ancient and so loud you can't sleep with them on, a giant cockroach crawled into bed with me as soon as I turned the lights off - not worth the $50 price tag at all. The one good thing is that it's located between Quepos town and Manuel Antonio Park.

"Musty and damp during the rainy season"
The hotel was right off the main road leading to Manuel Antonio National Park. We went during the rainy season and the room was musty and felt damp. Everyone was friendly and the service was good, its just an older hotel with an old smell to it. Breakfast is not included and the wi-fi was so weak we never were able to get connected, even in the lobby. It was close enough to the park, but if we were to go again, we would pick a hotel within walking distance of the park entrance so we wont have to pay for parking to enter the park.

"Great hotel for 1-2 night stay at a good price."
We stayed one night while driving through to Golfito. Staff allowed us to check in early so we had the afternoon to spend at the beach. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available so you do not have to go out searching for a restaurant. There are two nice pools. Rooms are set back from road so quiet, have air conditioning, television,and Internet.

"Great Stay while Supporting a Good Cause"
We had a great stay at Mono Azul. The hotel is big with 3 pools. Rooms are very spacious, clean, and the location of the hotel is right beside the bus stop on the main road between Quespos and Manuel Antonio. It is very easy to get to the national park and town (it comes often the bus very early and late into the night). The hotel service was helpful and very friendly. One of my favourite parts of Mono Azul is that it supports an organization called Kids Saving the Rain Forest and a portion of the costs of the accommodation goes towards a good cause.

L'accueil et le service sont excellents mais l'endroit a besoin d'un rafraîchissement. Le climatiseur était extrêmement bruyant et les matelas ont besoin d'être changés. Toutefois les propriétaires prennent grand soin de leurs clients. John a pris le temps de montrer à notre fille le paresseux qui se trouvait dans le boisé situé à côté d'une des piscines. Il y avait toujours quelqu'un pour répondre à nos questions ou nous offrir de bons conseils sur les établissement et activités autour. L'établissement est un des premiers situé après Quepos vers Manuel Antonio donc un peu plus éloigné de la plage de Manuel Antonio et il n'offre pas de vue sur l'océan et sur le coucher du soleil. Mais en somme, notre séjour a été quand même des plus agréables.

Et gennemsnitligt hotel. Det var ikke noget særligt, ikke noget der gjorde det hyggeligt. De havde tilsyneladende ikke åbnet op for højsæson endnu, den udendørs bar var rodet til og spillerummet/vuggestuen var alt andet end hyggeligt.

"Carino ma un po' da rinnovare."
Posizionato in curva ha la recepition su un lato della strada e parte delle stanze sull'altro. La nostra "villa" era spaziosa ma aveva bisogno di una piccola ristrutturata e non aveva il patio con le sedie come le altre. Alcuni punti potevano essere più puliti come lo scaffale alto della tv a muro che presentava qualche ragnatela. Abbiamo avuto l'impressione che le altre stanze fossero state migliori. Nel complesso però albergo carino e informale, immerso nel verde con piccole piscine appartate e rilassanti. Ristorante discreto con piatti assortiti sotto un patio . Personale educato.
