It's hard to add anything to the superlative reviews the Hotel Luna Azul has already received -- simply put, this is a wonderful hotel made truly unique for two reasons -- the hospitality of the owners/hosts, Rolf and Andreas; and the incredible beauty of the Ostional region. Perhaps I can add something to the other excellent reviews by elaborating a bit on the area. To get to the hotel, you need to be good at route finding and be willing to drive an hour on gravel roads. The roads are not really that bad (I'm from New Mexico, so I love rough roads!), and you don't really need four wheel drive, although it makes sense to rent one anytime you go to Costa Rica. The nearby beach in San Juanillo is our favorite anywhere, and the nesting turtles are truly one of the wonders of the world. If you want bars and nightlife, go somewhere else. If you don't like getting lost once in awhile and exploring backroads, go somewhere else. If all you want to do is drink mai tais and lay out by the pool, go somewhere else. If you want to see one of the most special places in the world before it changes, in a setting of grace and beauty, go to Hotel Luna Azul.
