This is an excellent place to view the sunset while sipping a refreshing cocktail around their infinity pool. It was just breath taking. Then we had a delicious greek inspired meal where I had the best hummus I have ever eaten. My steak was perfectly cooked and my husband had the peanut curry chicken, while my parents had the mixed...

Azul is a very romantic restaurant tucked high in the jungle to reveal wonderful sunset and ocean views. The staff was very kind and attentive. The seafood soup is a must, it was delicious! Be sure to make a reservation, as Azul is fills up quickly, even on a week night. Enjoy!

Fantastic vegan food. Once Russell knew we were vegan he pulled out all the stops. Simply amazing. Allyson will be back down there with her daughter in January and that is her fist stop! Stock the veggies and tofu:-)... and your wonderful spices. Don't forget the smoker. WOW! Thank you Russell.

My husband and I stayed in Ojochal for 6 nights. We stayed at El Castillo, so we enjoyed breakfast at Azul every morning. Breakfast is only for hotel guests and is different and delicious every day. We enjoyed fresh fruit every day and omelettes, huevos rancheros, french toast, breakfast burritos, and banana pancakes. Their lunch and dinner menu is so... More

Complicated? Hm. Let me try to understand, thatsnowblues, as we always appreciate feedback. You loved the view, restaurant and the food, but we are average because we would not let you swim in our pool? We do reserve our pool for hotel guests only. Respectfully to them. If you decided to stay with us, the pool would be exclusive to... More

Last week our ladies luncheon group, some 30 women, were served what I believe to be the best meal I have had since I moved to Costa Rica.
