To start there was one person trying to everything, checking in guests, waiting on tables and booking tours for people. Doing all of this while the owners sat and talked to what must have been more important than the rest of us paying guests. The Wi-Fi didn't work, which they blamed on the rain. When we sat down for supper... More

This hotel is under new ownership. John and Paige were friendly and welcoming and working hard to bring the Mono Azul up to their desired standards. Juan Carlos at the front desk was very friendly and keen to assist travellers in any way possible. He booked great tours for us in the area. There was plentiful wildlife in the immediate... More

This is such a great stopping place for a visit to Manuel Antonio Park. There are two pools and one of them I couldn't get my daughter out of it was such a great spot. The other pool was quieter and had plenty of shady spots to sit. The chef in the restaurant was amazing, using locally sourced fresh food... More

One young local man ran around doing everything, trying his best to please everyone who needed him. When I realized that he was waiting on the owners and investors who walked around like they were some sort of big shots, and the rest of us, paying customers, should be fine waiting a half hour looking at menus before anyone could...

My experience of Hotel Mono Azul was wonderful and was the perfect place to stay while visiting Quepos/Manuel Antonio. The location was quite ideal, right next to the bus stop. It was very accessible to both Manuel Antonio National park, and the city of Quepos; about a five minute ride each direction. The hotel itself was very nice, clean, nice... More

Stayed with my wife (we're a young couple) for two nights, we got a room far from the reception which was ok, quite except for the fan an the rain dropping o the roof! The bed was ok, however the place needs refurbishment! Overall I would say it's a decent place for a couple of nights and if you're traveling... More

We are a family of four on a tour to Manuel Antonio this Christmas. We stayed in this hotel and had a very positive experience. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. The new owners and the staff really helped us out in planning/booking our tours. They provided guidance for local travel and attractions. On the last... More

Hotel Mono Azul came under new ownership in December 2014. The American husband-wife-brother-in-law owner/managers are hands-on and eager to make their clients comfortable. Our group enjoyed clean and comfortable rooms near the lovely "warm" pool with fountain adjacent to the sitting area and dining room. Breakfast not included in rates but free coffee and tea available and reports of an... More

This was our second stay at Mono Azul! A friend/former tour guide recommended it and we loved it on our first stay back in July. We had a two bed room with no air conditioning (most economical). Pool was lovely! Breakfast was not included, but was reasonable and decent. Since July, the hotel was closed for a couple of months... More
