Check in sucked. 3 employees and non really interested in addressing us. We did get checked in and then waited at the bar area/wandered the reception area only to realize that the woman who checked us in didn't tell us that the two other men in the area were employees. One was checking porn on his laptop; the other finally... More

Clean rooms friendly people. We ate at the restaurant and the food was decent. My principal disappointment was to book online and arrive to see a big sign at the entrance saying "Deep Discounts - Name Your Own Price, Welcome!" and then not be offered any discount on the full retail I paid online. I was told I needed to... More

We got this through Expedia. The room was okay - clean, simple, nothing to brag about. The tub looked old and a bit stained but the cleaning lady did a good job cleaning it every day (we showered after going to the beach so we left a lot of sand behind). Had AC but no fridge (so I could not... More

On Feb 21st we booked 2 rooms paid through Expedia for one night to see to famous sunset in Manuel Antonio, which we were no able to, due the problem that we encountered at the Hotel. One of us was handicapped and they have no access at all for H people. (By law in CR Hotels must have access). It... More

Some friends and I stayed here for two nights and had a great experience. We had a villa across the street from the office/restaurant. The hotel staff was friendly, the beds were comfortable, and it is in a great location. Arturo was friendly and took the time to call different zip-lining companies for the best experience. I appreciate that he... More

We started our trip in Manuel Antonio, so the Mono Azul was our first stop. and we knew straight away that this will be our last stop as well ! the hotel is just great, the rooms super clean and well kept, the award winning restaurant is worth more than just one visit. the location is perfect, since the bus...

This is owned by a retired American who clearly has not invested in his hotel. Sheets and towels are dingy, gross film covering the pool, shower, sink, and tiles are cracked. Wifi is so weak we were not able to use. The only reason we stayed here is because the owner double booked our room at the other hotel he... More

The rates at the Mono Azul are certainly reasonable in comparison with most other hotels in the Manuel Antonio area, but my stay there in a "deluxe" room was disappointing in a variety of ways. For one, there was no hot water at any time in the rooms. The free WiFi only worked in the reception area -- not in... More

We were basically forced to stay here as our booking relocated us so probably wasn't in the best of moods. I can see how this place could have been a charming place at some point but it really shows that no one really takes care of it. This hotel felt grimy. I understand that there are bugs but this place... More

This hotel is ok, it's clean, the showers are hot and the coffee is good and bottomless. However it feels like it needs a bit of a makeover. The beds are not very comfortable (they feel really old) same goes for the bed sheets and towels. The reception staff is pretty dry, but the waiter is nice and the owner... More
