“I wanna live at the Hotel Casa Azul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2006

...because it is simply heaven on earth. If you are looking for a super chill, inexpensive slice of the good life, then contact Richard Sommer at the Hotel Casa Azul in Mal Pais, Costa Rica. Located on the southern-most tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, Richard's place is parked smack dab in front of an incredible stretch of beach. I was able to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee on my porch while watching my husband surf his heart out on the incredible surf break in Richard's front yard. Our afternoons were spent lounging around the gorgeous pool or catching a nap in the hammock. Richard is an amazingly hospitable guy who we even dined with a few nights during our stay. We are planning a return trip as soon as feasibly possible and plan to extend our stay to at least two weeks this time. You won't regret making your way to this fabulous getaway. ---
