My niece and I visited Costa Rica for the first time in June. This was our home base for a week and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Lovely family run hotel in a small town just a walk from the beach. The owners where super nice and the food was great. Great visit overall. Christina Melrose MA

We stayed in March 2015 while attending Envision Festival. It was everything we needed with great hospitality! Our hosts were very welcoming, the rooms were clean and well kept, and the daily breakfast delicious. We would stay again.

A great stay for a fair price! The food was wonderful as well as the rooms (very clean!) The best part about Bahia was their location. Bahia Azul gives you an authentic feel for the real Costa Rican experience!

If you would like to meet the real "Pura Vida" in Costa Rica this is the right place. I'm from Virginia and my wife is from Costa Rica. When we travel to visit definitely we have to go to Uvita beach (BTW my wife's favorite beach) and what better place to relax and enjoy an excellent stay than Hotel Bahía... More

Silvia and I stayed 3 nights at this nostalgic place, we got the real feel for costa rica. Rooms were great and the food was fantastic. You can't find a better place for the price you pay. I hope we get to come back and visit again, Tommy and Silvia Wyatt

We were expecting basic accommodations, and we got what we expected. Our room was very basic, but did have an air conditioning that helped dehumidify the room. We had nachos from the on site restaurant in the evening and they were satisfactory. Overall, I would have given the hotel an average review, but on check out there was an consistent... More

We stayed one night. These are very nice Tico accommodations. If you want US style (Westin) accommodations then maybe look elsewhere. If you came to relax and get away from the rat race and savor Tico hospitality this is a wonderful place. The food was excellent. The staff was super friendly and responsive. One of the A/C remotes was acting... More

If you want all the amenities of home, stay in a hotel chain. If you want to help the Costa Rican people and put money back into their economy, stay here. The only drawback for me was the cold showers. Everything else was wonderful. The AC worked great, Tonya speaks English (a bit help!), the food is remarkable, and there... More

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. One of the rooms needed the air conditioning to be fixed, another one needed the showers to be repaired. Our bed... More
