We looked for a perfect hotel to spend the last few days in costa rica and definatly found it in Banana Azul. We didnt book in advance (we dont plan our trips in advance) and as Banana Azul is quite a popular hotel there was actually no room for the first night. The staff was kind enough to give us the emergency room for the first night. They appologized for a few times because that room wasnt representative for their hotel but actually it was quite a cosy and very clean room. But the other 3 nights we stayed in 2 different types of rooms. The first one downstairs, with ac, tv and an amazing outside bathroom. The next 2 nights we stayed upstairs with an amasing balcony, no AC but that wasnt a problem. All the rooms were very comfortable and beautifull decorated. Very nice and attentive staff, yummy food, tasty fresh coconuts, ... What more can you want.
