This was a nice hotel. Originally we had booked it for 4 of us, 2 full-size beds. They upped charged us when we arrived $50, claiming we had only reserved the room for 2 people - not a huge issue, but it wasn't presented with the usual Costa Rican hospitality. Hotel was nice and clean, pool with bar and complementary... More

I stayed in the larger of the the two hotels. The pool was clean. I went swimming everyday. The food at the restaurant was great! I had the steak salad many times. The service was great. The staff was frienfly and inviting. My family did a small boat ride tour through the beautiful mangroves and we saw a crocodile. We... More

This hotel is right on the main road in Puntarenas as soon as you enter from the mainland. It is a yacht club and hotel. The restaurant and bar on site are good. Pool is as well. There is ample parking. I hope to come back for personal reasons next time.

So, stayed here for one night as a midpoint for traveling. Photos of the hotel / condo complex (for that is what it is -- not really a hotel) are accurate, but what isn't shown is the location, which is not the best, to be generous. The beach isn't a place that you'd want to visit or swim, nor is... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. Definitely we recommend this hotel. The rooms are extremely comfortable, the beds are perfect, the clean service is excellent. The pool is so relaxing. The only suggestion is about Restaurant. Perhaps would be perfect if the menu include more healthy dishes.

I am afraid of this place. Booking.com you have failed me. It looks nothing like the online description and while I paid a discounted rate, if I had paid $20 per night I would be overpaying. There are insects on the floor. The pool is filthy and I feel like I'm in a bad 90's movie. Do not stay here.

It is a nice place to stay for a couple of nights. The room was clean and confortable. The food is ok, as well the service. But you are not going to have a nice sleep if you have a noisy next-door neighbour. You better bring cash to pay, because after 3 days in the hotel, they couldn't fix the... More

I love the condos and hotel pool area. The perfect place to relax in quiet luxury and have some fun within walking distance. This hotel has three distinct sections, which allow for some mixing. Their is the traditional hotel, the marina, and the condo tower. Guest at all locations can take advantage of the pool, restaurant, and bar. The condo... More

Puntarenas is not really a go-to stop for Costa Rica as there are much nicer areas to stay but for an overnight, Puerto Azul Hotel is fine. The room was clean and basic. The a/c works great. We ate at the restaurant for dinner and then again for the breakfast which is included. Both meals were good, the service was... More
