5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The hotel staff is friendly. The grounds are beautiful. The room was an individual villa with a deck overlooking tree tops and was a great view. The beach is probably a kilometer away. The bathroom and shower are connected to the room but outdoors and covered and are very nice. The free breakfast was excellent

    Excellent location, small and perfectly formed

    Luna Azul has a very welcoming atmosphere and staff, beautiful gardens full of wildlife and a pool with great rainforest and distant pacific views, particularly at sunset. We loved the open air restaurant and lounge/bar. Breakfast is tasty and substantial and excellent dinners are chosen from a blackboard menu which changes daily. The 'sofa bed' was large and comfortable and could be configured as two singles so the room was great for a family of 4. The location is very peaceful and extremely convenient for the turtle nesting (in season) at Ostional, fantastic surfing at Playa Marbella to the north (where the Tiki Hut is a top spot for lunch) and Playa Guiones to the south (when the ford on the road to Nosara isn't too deep). Rolf provides great advice on what to do locally. The road in from the north was a bit rough but no problem in a 4WD.

    Wow, stunning oasis in the jungle

    This is one of the coolest places I've ever stayed. It's a spectacular little paradise in the jungle, with first-rate food, super cleanliness, amazing service and friendliness, high convenience. Wildlife abounds: iguanas, armadillos, howler monkeys.

    A Wonderful Stay

    Hotel Luna Azul was a wonderful place to stay. Our hosts and their staff were excellent and helpful. We enjoyed the quiet, beautiful surroundings. Our room was very comfortable and lovely. Our balcony faced the ocean. We enjoyed having a restaurant right there. Delicious meals! The unpaved roads are bumpy, so just know this in advance.
