We ate dinner here twice while staying 5 nights at the hotel where it's located. The chickpeas that came with my husband's souvlaki were better than a lot of fries I've had. The chef came out to inquire about my Moroccan chicken; he was worried he might have made it too spicy. Nope, it was perfect. We also had pita... More

The El Castillo Hotel and its restaurant, Azul are amazing. The atmosphere and views are beyond compare. We ate at Azul daily. The food was outstanding and elegantly presented. The service was top-notch, and everyone was very accommodating and helpful. We were spoiled beyond repair! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you Scott, Ace, Carlos, Jose, and Yorg - we will see you... More

Go here during the day for great views over the beaches and a lagoon and for the very nice Greek/Turkish food and the charming service.

We ate at Azul on our first night in Costa Rica. The food was very enjoyable as were our drinks. Service was good and the restaurant is in a fantastic location high above the Pacific. The only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is the price. It was expensive for Costa Rica - the most we paid in our... More

We didn't stay for dinner because we had other plans but we were so pleased that we went to Cuna del Angel for sunset, drinks and an appetizer. The margarita was the best one we had had on our trip and the calamari was excellent. What a beautiful place! Spectacular views!

The felafel sandwich is wonderful. I really enjoyed the fish tacos and the kids loved the Pizza with calamari rings. All of this with an amazing view of a spectacular sunset!!! The view is worth the trip!

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...
