My sister and I stayed here at the Blue Monkey (Mono Azul) for a week in Quepos and were quite happy there. Chip and Jennifer the owners were very friendly and helpful in many ways. Because the weather was more humid than we had anticipated, we switched to an air-conditioned room. It was spacious and away from traffic sounds. We... More

The Blue Monkey Hotel was very economical, clean, and safe. Be sure to ask for an air conditioned room if hot, humid climates are uncomfortable to you. The owners Chip and Jennifer were very friendly and helpful. The staff was also. You can book tours, taxis, etc. and get advice at the front desk. The food was really good and... More

Very impressed with the staff, most speak better English than my Spanish! Rooms are very clean, dated to USA standards. But very clean! Best nights sleep in two weeks! We will return next trip! Beware when looking for this motel.

The hotel is simple but quite beautiful. Lots of monkeys in the trees. The Air conditioners are really powerful and the windows open to the outside to allow in air. The rooms are very clean, but simple. The staff is kind and makes a genuine effort to be helpful. The restaurant is not inexpensive but has really delicious local food-... More

I needed a place to relax and forget about it. THe privacy I got here was perfect. It has been a long time since I stayed here but, a week of fresh fruit, yogurt and granola breakfasts served poolside while I read my books was great. By surprise I got to meet some new friends that seem to gather daily... More

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

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
