We went on January my sister, my mom and me. My mom is a little older and has an injury with her arm so we needed a place for her to be close to everything. We went on public transportation from San José and it was a short walk from the bus stop to the Hotel. Richard, the owner was... More

My fiancé and I spent ten days in Costa Rica in three different locations, including a luxury resort hotel but casa azul was our favorite spot by miles. Absolutely perfect location in town but set back from the road and steps from the beach. The pool and hammocks were lovely and Richard the owner was incredibly friendly and helpful. Cannot... More

It's a nice and relax place with that vibe of ''chilling''... not to ''chic'' but everything you need! Perfect place for surfer! We can see the wave from your room, you just need to grap your surf and go... walk for a minute and you're in the Ocean! Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and you can ear the wave... More

Richard the owner is great about making sure you are ok starting with the reservations, great communication. This is our 2nd visit and it won't be our last. I don't think there are adequate words to describe just how perfect it is here. Starting from your drive down the driveway in, it's picture perfect. The pool is a BONUS perfect... More

We enjoyed 10 days at the Casa Azul over the Christmas/New Year holiday. It is by far the best location in Santa Teresa, right in the downtown area as well as on the beach. Richard, the owner, is very clear about the expectations for his property so there were no surprises. We have already asked to book again next year!

On the water, clean, well maintained, superior grounds, clean, well maintained pool, secure, excellent surf break for all skill levels, central location to great restaurants & stores and reasonably priced. After several years of visiting CR, Nica, El Salv, this is my favorite. It is a royal pain to get here which means less crowds. This is a superior hotel... More

Didn't have a place to stay our first night so we asked for suggestion from our shuttle driver. Found it easily on the beach but just far back enough from the road and holiday crowd. Richard the owner showed us our options and we couldn't be happier with the accommodation and price. Clean and comfortable with a view and pool... More

i found Casa Azul a couple of years ago when I was looking for a reasonably priced accommodation near the beach in Santa Teresa. It is just perfect for my annual summer beach retreat - quiet property, located close to restaurants and shops, and most importantly, a gate right out to the most incredible beach. The property is very well... More

We stayed in a Casita for 2 nights in December and had a great stay. Richard was great with communicating via email while we were inquiring about staying there.

We arrived in Santa Theresa without a reservation, and just stumbled upon Blue Azul, and luckily there was availability in the big house where they rent rooms with a common kitchen. All was well there as the rooms are clean, and the shared kitchen area works out fine. One of the two single homes became available, and we jumped on... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
High quality beachfront property with private beach access. Located on Playa Carmen, with sand and some of the most consistent beach breaks in Costa Rica right in front. Great surf for novice to advanced. Custom professional surf lessons right on site. An economical room for $75 to a large luxury, private 2nd floor 2 bedroom suite for $375. A separate small private house, the casita and the option of renting the entire 5BDR / 4Bath private luxury beachfront home. You will not find better quality and value in our market. Excellent international cuisine within an easy walk and much more in a short drive. Come see why our clients have coined the phrase 'closer to the waves' for Hotel Casa Azul. ... more   less

“Great view and close to everything”
 of 5 bubbles 638laum, Jun 21, 2016 | Read review
“Our group stayed in the rooms on the first floor and they all had AC which was lovely. If you want a beautiful view to wake up to, definitely get one of the two ocean view rooms, but the small room in the back has the best price and is still well appointed, just without the balcony doors looking out on the property.”

“Rooms on the left side (facing the beach) felt very private because they are sort of at an angle away from the main pool area.”

“We really like the ocean view room. It was more than enough space for two people and the patio was great for hanging out.”
