I stayed at Casa Azul for three nights with my mom, and it was the perfect spot for us. Richard was great and so helpful right from first contact. He was really accessible and it was easy to book. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff who showed us around and helped us get settled in our room. We... More

My wife and I have stayed at Casa Azul four times over the past 7 years and it continues to be the best place to stay for surfing. It is on the beach with a direct view of the waves and is 75 yards to the surf. It is clean, safe and very well run. All the accommodations have a... More

Beautiful, Clean, Safe, Great pool, steps to one of the best surf breaks you will find. Richard and his support staff have done it once again. 5 days in paradise! A simple walk to restaurants. Rest in between surf sessions in the hammocks, soak in the pool. Can't say enough. Thanks again!!!

Richard is the consummate host, and Casa Azul is the perfect blend of quality, comfort, and value. It's location couldn't be better either - prime proximity to the beach and close to all you need in Santa Teresa. Richard makes the guests' comfort, security, and peace of mind his priority, and it is evident in the surroundings at Casa Azul.... More

Richard was key in making our stay at Casa Azul in Costa Rica as wonderful as could be. The buildings and grounds are beautiful, meticulously maintained, and landscaped like a dream. The location is super convenient to most anything you would want in Santa Theresa. And, the best part is you have no idea the hustle and bustle is only... More

Richard Thank You. I have been in Santa Teresa several times since 2006. This time was the most enjoyable. Tabu the beach bar with the horribly loud music (yes I am over 25) and the almost as loud disco are now silent. Peace and quiet. Great Restaurants (Mary's, The Italian Place, The Grilled Chicken Place, Roca Mar, The Bakery, and... More

We've stayed at the casita at Casa Azul twice now, once as a couple, once with our family and have been very pleased with both stays. The location is just about perfect - right in the heart of the action literally steps from the beach. The casita is clean and comfortable and easily accommodated our family of four - they... More

Richard is an awesome host at Hotel Casa Azul. He has helped me to spend a significant amount of time in Santa Teresa, find my way around, and resolve problems. The hotel is really clean, organized, and pleasant. I stayed in the small room, one of the ocean-view rooms, and also for a few days in the upstairs suite in... More

This was our first choice in Santa Theresa and we were not disappointed. The hotel is located directly on the beach and close to good places to eat. The hotel has options of staying in the main house or has separate cottages. We stayed in the main house in a very comfortable room that had great views of the ocean.... More
