We just returned from a one week stay at Luna Azul. I echo the comments of so many others who have offered praise for this wonderful hotel and its hosts, Rolf and Andreas (and dog Fino), and their staff (especially Roberto). The location of the hotel is perfectly situated for exploring the areas around Nosara, Ostional, and other villages/beaches in... More

We found this wonderful hotel by accident while driving to go surf and look for turtles on the Nicoya Peninsula. The owners, Rolf and Andreas, were wonderful and we spent two beautiful days enjoying their great rooms and excellent meals. I would highly recommend this place and I am looking forward to a future visit.

We had two "extra" days to fill on our family vacation to CR (kids 10, 8 and 6) so decided to book a room at Hotel Luna Azul. I almost cancelled the room and was fretting about the extra driving time it would take for us to get to and from the hotel. But, we decided to go anyways and... More

We must spent 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. We had a king room with a lovely balcony facing into the trees. We could enter the bathroom through the door from our room or from the balcony since it was open to the elements. Dinner was so good each night with many choices and breakfast was complete and also... More

My wife and I spent a weekend at Luna Azul and thoroughly enjoyed the best service, facilities, and food that we have experienced and we travel a lot. Rolf and Andreas are very knowledgeable about the area and attention to detail is evident in service and décor.

Arrival after a five hour by car trip (thought "rural" at best roads for the last two hours) was a blessing. Our hosts welcome us kindly and took us to our cabin (two rooms per cabin) where they explained us most of the things about the hotel. The rooms were big enough and each room has its own private terrace... More

We planned this vacation last minute and although there are many options, because of the reviews we went with Hotel Luna Azul. Getting to the hotel is a great experience. I live in Costa Rica, but going through the gravel roads made for a very exciting trip. Once there, when you get onto the grounds, it's like going into an... More

We loved every moment of our stay at Luna Azul Costa Rica. We came there as a family with a 10 and 15 year old. We all enjoyed it.
