Yes, there were bugs and lizards. Yes, the ride was long and bumpy. Yes, the showers are open air. And it all adds to the charm. We had such an amazing experience at Hotel Luna Azul, we cannot wait to plan another trip. Everyone was so gracious and welcoming, the accomodations are incredible, the wildlife was abundant, and the food... More

Hotel Luna Azul is a unique and very private place to relax and enjoy nature overlooking the Pacific coast. Rolf and Andreas provide outstanding service in what feels more like being guests in a private villa than staying at a hotel. The beautiful outdoor dining area with ocean breeze serves outstanding food - I highly recommend the local beef. All... More

We had stayed previously at Luna Azul and it was the first place we thought of on our return trip to the area. We brought our daughter and her boyfriend this time and they were both in awe of the beautiful room, view and food! Couldn't wait to watch the sunset from the pool. The hosts, Rolf & Andreas (and...

How do I begin to describe our one of a kind, amazing experience at Hotel Luna Azul... How about we start with the incredibly warm and welcoming owners, Rolf and Andreas? These two could not have made our experience any more pleasurable and relaxing. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, the service was above and... More

We were in March 2015 on a trip through Panama, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. We couldn’t thereby have imagined a better place to relax for a few days than in the small hotel „Luna Azul“ with its seven Bungalows, beautiful restaurant/pool terrace with ocean view and well kept gardens. We saw during our stay also a lot of wildlife on... More

We came to Luna Azul not really realizing what we were going to experience. I can tell you we more than pleased. You are about 45 minutes off of paved roads. So, be prepared to drive on dirt roads that are definitely not smooth. This just adds to the experience. Once you arrive at Luna Azul, you are warmly greeted... More

This was our first trip to CR but will not be our last. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else. All of the reviews are 100% spot on. Rolf, Andreas and their dog Fino are perfect hosts. They treat their guests as family and could not have been more welcoming. Roberto who takes care of the bar and dinner service is... More

My wife and I found this hotel based on a recommendation from a friend, and it was by far our favorite hotel in Costa Rica.  All of the places that we stayed at prior to this were nice, but we felt that this secluded little resort was different from the rest.   It felt really private and peaceful, which was perfect after days of...

An update to my previous five-star review of Luna Azul - same great hotel, terrific restaurant, warm welcome, and fabulous view of the Pacific. But now, there's wi-fi in the bungalows as well as the lobby/restaurant. A small thing that makes a great small hotel even better.
