“Clean, Quiet, Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

We chose Casa Costa Azul for a one night stay before a flight. It's location along the strip made the airport a short ride in the morning. The hotel was very quiet, very well maintained and overall quite nice. Our ground floor room was a bit dark, but some may like this for sleeping. The bathrooms are pretty but small. The pool is also small, but very modern and stark. It could use some plants and more comfortable furniture. You are sitting on a platform jutting right out to the beach. It makes for lovely views of the ocean and sunrise, but may feel rather exposed to some people. The hotel grounds were nicely landscaped and the beach was raked and smoothed each day. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you are looking for clean, well kept and very quiet, Casa Azul is everything so much of Cabo isn't!

This new 15 room boutique hotel was built lovingly over a period of 11 years by the owner and his family, and their care and pride shows in every detail. The location on a semi-deserted beach is superb. The rooms are furnished with a combination of antiques and pieces made for the hotel. Although the hotel has no dining room a continental breakfast is set up in the reception area, and for a private, romantic dinner the hotel will set up a candlelit table on the beach and bring in a cook and waiter. Heaven on a beach.

Room Tip: For incredible views book a room that faces directly on the beach.

We were looking for a smaller hotel, away from the activity of Cabo San Lucas, and are so pleased to have found Casa Costa Azul on Trip Advisor. It's truly a gem. Situated right on a beautiful stretch of beach outside San Jose del Cabo, we learned while there, that the hotel is the product of many years of planning and work on the part of the husband and wife who own and run it. There's very much a family feel among the staff and the attention to detail and care that they have put in is apparent all around. Nothing feels stuffy or overdone, rather, the décor is tasteful, thoughtful, and authentic...Mexican artisanal tile work, rustic wooden furniture in the rooms, and a lush, tropical courtyard all add to the ambiance...There is a nice patio and small pool that faces the ocean, but we preferred to spend out time, just yards away, on the beach.

The intimate five or six table was the perfect place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner, though we mostly just ate breakfast there, because one of the best restaurants in Cabo (Deckman’s, which came recommended by the hotel owners) is literally, across the street. But that's for another review...

The owners and staff at Casa Costa Azul were very polite, helpful and friendly, but also unobtrusive. They arranged our airport transportation (approx. twenty minute taxi ride), recommended restaurants and were available for questions when we had them.

If you are sensitive to noise or a light sleeper, I recommend requesting an ocean facing room on the top floor, as there is some road noise on the other side of the hotel (which the owner told us prior to making our reservation) and we could hear the people above us when they came home from a late night. Other than those small things, our time at Casa Costa Azul was enchanted--and felt too short!

Loved this small boutique hotel. We stayed in an oceanfront room on the 3rd floor. Doors open all night, slept to the sound of waves crashing. Clean, nicely decorated, good size room with refrigerator and other amenities. The owner and his family were friendly and very accommodating. We were able to check out a little later, use their phone for a small fee and they even held on to my purse and valuables while we were swimming in ocean. The beach and ocean right in front of the hotel was clean, safe and we swam in glorious clear water daily. We had breakfast and lunch at the small restaurant on the outdoor patio. The food was great and the staff warm and friendly. This is a perfect size hotel and the location was great for swimming, surfing, day or night trips to Cabo and San Jose. Thank you Jorge and family!

This is a lovely boutique hotel, definitely a nice change from the mega resorts that we usually stay in Mexico. The room is nicely decorated, moderate in size with space to have a writing desk and compact dining area. The bathroom is a bit small but clean and decorated with beautiful tiles, reminds you right in the colorful Mexico. The hallway and garden are tastefully decorated as well. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi throughout the whole building.

The breakfast was also included, which was claimed as continental type at the time we made reservation. To our surprise, we were welcomed with a fully serviced breakfast in an onsite restaurant: coffee, juice, fresh fruit, yogurt, Bacon and egg with bean, or Mexican egg come with homemade flour tortillas. All cooked order and was delicious. We really enjoyed our Saturday morning breakfast under the warm sun and dry ocean breeze.

The hotel is in a convenient location, about 15 minutes drive from the airport, 5 minutes drive from San Jose Del Cabo, 20 minutes walk from the Mega store via beach path. You can also take a bus to the town, the bus stop is right in front of the hotel gate. We were very glad we chose staying at Casa Costa Azul over those big resorts. Highly recommended.

P.S. The “famous” Deskman’s is right across the street. Since almost every Casa Costa Azul reviewer said highly about this place, we went there for a late dinner. We were quite disappointed because the food was good but pricy and served with small portion. We just don’t understand the hype. There are a plenty of good restaurants in town serve with great food with reasonable price.

We spend 3 nights and 4 days at this beautiful Casa Costa Azul in March 2012.
It was going to be our babymoon trip (last romantic trip before our first baby is born) and I couldn't ask for better.
We looked at many different places including "All-Inclusive" deals but this was the best choice!
The place is amazingly beautiful. You can notice the fine touch of the person who designed this place. The atmosphere is so serene, you feel like you are in a separate world.
The staffs are very friendly and they are willing to accommodate your need.
The location is awesome. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel so if you want to travel via Bus you can. We rented a car and that was very convenient for us.
There is a surf break right in front of the hotel so you can see the surfers trying to catch waves. I actually rented a surfboard and surfed at one of the breaks for half of a day.
No soliciting for time-share sales. The owner just let you enjoy your time at the hotel.

This was our first time staying in San Jose del Cabo, though we've stayed in much busier Cabo San Lucas many times. We really enjoyed the Casa Costa Azul. This is a smaller hotel but very romantic and the view can't be beat.
The rooms are so quaint, very comfortable, clean and well-maintained. There is a little restaurant that will make you anything you want. We ate breakfast and lunch here everyday and it was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend giving them a try. If you'd like to go into town it is an $8 cab ride, about 5 minutes.
The pool and beach area are so peaceful. The waves are quite big but a decent swimmer can safely swim in this area, I wouldn't recommend letting small children play too close to the water but it is much more swimable than most beaches in the Sea of Cortez.
There is no pool-bar or anything like that but the owner kindly fixed my husband up with a cooler and stocked him with beers for fairly cheap.
At night the sound of the ocean will lull you to sleep.
If you are looking for something quiet and special, you will not be disappointed.
