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

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...

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
