All of the staff is amazing they are a huge part of why I loved everything. Some of the coolest and nicest people I have met! They made me feel right at home and feel like family when I was so far from home in New Jersey. They are the reason why I get what Pura Vida means. If you... More

I don't normally write reviews on Trip Advisor, but the time I spent at Hotel Perico Azul has prompted me to sign up! I spent the bones of a fortnight during the height of rainy/green season, and I can honestly say it was the best holiday I've ever been on. My sister and I stayed with Mike and Celine, and... More

I spent a week at hotel Perico Azul from December 27-January 4 2015. All I can say is wow. The hotel is very low kep but it's clean. The staff is friendly and always willing to help out. They gave great recommendations for dinning and the group that I was traveling with had a phenomenal time. I spent many nights... More

I was part of a group that rented the entire hotel for a week including New Year's Eve for a surfing and yoga retreat. Upon arrival I was super pleasantly surprised. The facilities are clean, comfortable and updated, and the decor is abundant with beach chic charm. The pics posted on the site are accurate, although a small cabana with... More

The pool provided a wonderful soaking and relaxation experience after days of vigorous surfing workouts. The rooms are awesome! I stayed in the apartment which had a complete kitchen, sitting are with super comfortable lounge chairs, air conditioning and huge... More

This hotel is rated #1 on tripadvisor for many great reasons. First and foremost the friendly and helpful service from Marina and Celine had me hooked from the very beginning. Anything you needed they were there to help. My boyfriend and I rented dirt bikes for 24 hours, and to be completely sure they were safe overnight the owner insisted... More

We stayed at Hotel Perico Azul for just one night during our vacation in Costa Rica. It is a great little hotel and the owners are both so friendly! Simple rooms but very clean and decorated beautifully (fresh flowers every day!). I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Jaco.

My second stay at Hotel Perico Azul, and once again, this lovely little establishment exceeded all my expectations. Booking was simple and since my flight was arriving late in the evening I arranged through the hotel for the airport pick-up whereby I got a great deal and the driver was waiting with a sign. Since my last stay, the rooms... More

The hospitality and professional demeanor of the owners, the neat, clean room with best shower facility I had during my trip, and the proximity to the beach made this hotel stay the absolute best we've had since we arrived in Costa Rica.
