Pretty basic room at a fair, if not cheap, rate. Decent breakfast included,but avoid the dining room otherwise. Friendly staff. We'd look around elsewhere before returning, but there aren't many choices in this price range...we'd pay more to get better.

We stayed for several days with family and friends and used several different rooms. All of them were on the same run-down state: furniture is damaged, TV on his last breath, lighting is basic, one room plus minute bath.

Anna makes the most amazing breakfast, Tanya the most amazing jewelry (out of recyclable material!!) and Esteban's daughter can't stop smiling!! If you want to experience Costa Rica outside of the confines of a "resort" stay here,... More

I think the landscaping needs more attention, my opinion, I like gardens and ambiance. I did enjoy the murals on some of the walls. The room was bigger than a more attractive hotel that we... More

Due to a transportation issue, we were unable to go to our reserved hotel in another town and needed to find a place in Uvita - this is the only one we could find at 8pm with a vacancy. When we found this place, we said 'thank goodness we dont have to sleep in the car tonight'. Well - that... More

I stayed at Bahia Azul hotel with a group of students from a university. We were doing community service in Bahia Ballena and also enjoying the site of the area. The staff at Bahia Azul were extremely accommodating to our students. We had a great rate that paid for our rooms and all our meals. The food was delicious and... More
