I joined my husband and adult son for a wonderful stay at Casa Azul. They would surf every day while I enjoyed the private pool. Casa Azul sits right on the beach and has an easy walking path to the ocean. In the evenings we enjoyed the peace and quiet while sitting around the pool watching the sunset. My family... More

This is one of the only places right next to the beach in Santa Teresa. It is a lovely house with a beautiful garden and direct sea view. There even is a private access right to the beach. The owner Richard was very friendly and helpfull. The pool was very clean and quite big. All the premises were in a... More

If you are headed to Santa Teresa to surf then there is no better place to stay than Casa Azul. From the house it is about a 20 yard walk around the pool (the best place to de salinize after a quick rinse in the outside shower) and through the grass yard to the beach. Every morning I would wake... More

I travel Costat Rica often and always enjoy Casa Azul. It's clean, quite, with easy access to the restuarants and shops in Santa Teresa, but most importantly it is on the beach, and one of the best surf spots right at your backdoor. I have stayed at Casa Azul numerous times and the owner and staff have always been very... More

On the beach, near the center of town, beautiful and private setting. What else do you need to know? The owner and gratious host Richard Sommers was in residence and it was a pleasure to meet him. He has thoughtfully created and meticulusly maintains a natural park like setting for the extensive grounds that separate you from the vibrant local... More

Loved this place! Watch the surf lineup from your room, enjoy the sounds of the crashing waves. I rented the small cabana on the property. I recommend checking this place out.

I wanted to go to Costa Rica to relax, surf and re-energise. I wanted a hotel where I could wake up and walk straight into a surf break out the front of the hotel. Casa Azul was it! I'd go to sleep listening to the Ocean.Very relaxing! Wake up and look from my bed at the surf,go surfing,come in, jump... More

This is a phenomenal stop if you would like a great surf break, ocean front, pool, walking distance to the town, great privacy, super clean rooms and great service. The owner Richie is kind and professional and understands service. I would highly recommend this place and I plan on revisiting next year.

The surroundings of this beautiful beachfront hotel are stunning. Observe the wild life as you cruise down the tropical driveway. See the resident iguanas as they meander from tree to tree. Listen to the squirrels ramble and play. Hear the howler monkey as you open your eyes to start another relaxing day. Snuggle into the hammeck as you listen to... More
