Amazing Family Getaway
First trip to Costa Rica... We wanted to get away. We wanted to speak Spanish (for Kids). We wanted to surf. We wanted an adventure. Playa Azul was perfect home base for it all. Cabana was great for my family of 5. Plenty of room and Daybed was made up like real bed so no one had to be on coach. Upstairs, downstairs, hammock, meant plenty of room when we actually were in room. Even on the grounds we were often the only ones around as its a small resort and theres lots of room to make your own and get lost. Would be great for Family Reunion or wedding. Most of time was driving a little south to Nosara, little north to Playa Avilla, or points in between. On return a nice swim in the great pool and some great food at Playa Azul. Food was a little pricey, but worth it. Kitchenettes help with water and snacks when you don't want a sit down meal. FYI - There's a dirt road for 40 minutes to get to the place, but that's part of the fun. Your in Costa Rica! Hopefully you wanted a bit of adventure. When we arrived bridge was having work done and we had to drive through river. We drove through river from then on even when bridge was fixed and kids loved it. Bring that kind of attitude and you'll have a BLAST!

AVOID!!! BE CAREFUL! NOT SAFE!
AVOID!!! We spent over $700 on 4 nights here and left for another hotel after 3 hours. It's located in an EXTREMELY poor area, that once must have had investors and construction projects, but all have been abandon and riddled with vandalism. The hotel seems to have been the only project completed before the budget ran out. The property and buildings are worn out and clearly weathered. The pool is the local bird bath, covered in feathers and droppings. The room had scuff marks all over the walls, the sheets were dirty, and there ANTS EVERYWHERE. You think this is the worst part? How about the front door to our room was tampered with so that when you lock it, the bolt doesn't sit flush with the lock allowing anyone to enter our room, and YES they entered while we were out on our balcony and locked us out. Seeing as the lock to the balcony is a turn key lock, there's literally no other way to get locked out. Luckily our stuff was in the safe, but even that had looked tampered with. The food we read on reviews was over priced and bad so we avoided that and quickly left for a new hotel. We didn't even stay one night and the hotel refused to refund us anything. The beach? Not even able to swim in. Too rocky and huge waves make it far too dangerous to swim in. Oh and they clearly bug bombed the rooms because they went OVERKILL with air fresheners. Also the showers have little to no hot water. DONT MAKE OUR MISTAKE. ITS NOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE ONLINE. AVOID AT ALL COST! NOT SAFE!

No power and no help
Very disappointed! We lost power around 7:30pm and it didn't return till 7:30am next day. We had no air, it was hot and had to eat dinner in the dark. No one came to check on us and when we went the next day to discuss nothing was done about it. Restaurant food was amazing and staff there was awesome! Beaches were great and place could have been very enjoyable.
