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

Highly recommended for weddings! The hotel offers and incredible place with white sand for the ceremony and amazing view of beach! I have done wedding shootings always with great results due to the beautiful place that the hotel offers to couples! Hopefully I will shoot another wedding soon here!

This is mostly a review of the Club Nautico / marina portion of the complex. We found this to be a great little marina. Would definitely stay there again if we needed to be in Puntarenas: We stayed there for three nights on our boat. The marina manager is terrific— from sending a pilot boat to guide us to the... More

We basically booked a night there because we didn't want a long drive back to san josé the other day. First: Puntarenas is not worth at all to stay longer there, Costa Rica has much more better places to see! Back to the hotel: there is nothing to say against the room, this was fine. Pool area is also ok.... More

We booked this hotel on the internet. When we arrived at 2pm, we were told that we could not check in until 3pm. We went to the restaurant. My wife and I ordered chicken. We couldn't eat the chicken because it was undercooked-- raw! The waitress apologized and said that it was the new cook's first day on the job.... More

Puerto Azul Hotel is reasonably priced. The rooms are very clean and modern with free wifi internet and TV. There is a restaurant and a very large well maintained swimming pool. The grounds are well groomed and the Hotel Security is top notch! Puerto Azul has a marina for boaters on the inland channel. Across the road is the beach... More

Puerto Azul Hotel / condo is a great place to stay. It is close to all down town activities and beach. The beach out front is clean and clear and only ½ block walk. The tour companies know where it is. We were picked up easily everyday. The staff is fantastic and the rates are GREAT for such a nice... More

The place favored by families with kids, stunning views overlooking gardens, pool, kids playground, marina and opposite mangrove swamps. The staff is polite and efficent. Pool depth more suitable for kids rather than adults, despite of its impressive size and shape. Best choice is a first floor room, Chiggers, no-see-ums or mosquitoes are of no concern during the day, but... More
