“Scenic grounds........but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We spent a couple of nights here and enjoyed it. The grounds are vast and beautiful with wonderful plants and flowers along the walks. The rooms were comfortable but.....hot water was an issue or a non-issue, since it wasn't there much. After a day of river-rafting and zip-lining a hot shower before dinner would have been nice......not!

The staff was welcoming and friendly but the food was mediocre and, come on! what bar in Costa Rica runs out of Pina Coladas! and it is, beautiful but in the middle of no where.

Room Tip: Our room was on the river so not only was it scenic but had those wonderful water sounds that make f...

Sueno Azul is a wonderful and beautiful place with an amazing szenery, great food and lovely caring staff! I loved each minute of my stay. Activities offered are fun and accompanied by engaged and professionell staff. Accomodations are cozy and provide lots of space. In the middle of the rainforest jungle Sueno Azul is a peaceful jewel where I felt safe, comfortable, cared about and relaxed.

I stayed at Sueno Azul Resort for one week and had the BEST experiences. The accommodations are outstanding. The rooms are lovely and the beds are very comfortable. The food is amazing! The head Chef sometimes serves the food. His love and pride for his work is apparent as each meal is delicious. I always went back for seconds AND I lost 3 pounds during my stay. The food is healthy and organic. The service is impeccable. I felt so taken care of by the staff - thoughtful and caring people. The owners Federico and Haydee are absolutely lovely and I felt at home as they welcomed me into their home/resort. There is horseback riding available (beautiful & friendly horses) and a zip-line so you can fly over the rain forrest! The resort is located near a chocolate factory which is a fun day trip. Sueno Azul is a magical place in Paradise. Everywhere where you look is beauty. I will be returning there again next winter. Pura Vida!

Sueno Azul is a beautiful place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone! The staff is friendly and knowledgable, the food is amazing and the accommodations are comfortable and cozy. It’s a rare opportunity to experience being in the middle of the jungle, while enjoying the comforts of modern life. It also offers spectacular scenery and fun activities, including the best horseback rides I’ve ever been on. Two thumbs up.

Very welcoming staff. Courtesy is tops here. Knowledge of English very good. The manager even knew of a yoga retreat called Kripalu near my home in Massachusetts, USA. It's a small world. The food was delicious, I had a fish dinner that was cooked to mouth watering perfection. Many birds to see here and nice views. Clean comfortable room with privacy. Great place for conferences or for anyone just looking to get away.

Room Tip: I had room 22 facing the lake. There was no need for AC. The room ceiling fan was sufficient. Fun...

The access is a little hard, but this is part of the adventure. Right before getting to the hotel there are two bridges of the width of a car. It was a nice surprise when we got there and there was this awesome hotel.

The hotel has a fantastic zip line circuit. Super fun! We also took a bath in the waterfalls, with natural swimming pools. And there's also a men-made swimming pool where the water comes from and goes back to the river. It can't be more natural than that!

There are also horses and rafting. And the fruit drinks served there are amazing.

Lunch was typical, simple and delicious food from Costa Rica.

I definitely recommend the hotel. As a curiosity, apparently the hotel is commonly a set for filmmakers. I saw pictures from After Earth, with Will Smith. There were other pictures from other famous people also. And while I was there, there was a reality show being filmed. It was interesting.
