No words to describe the feel of Hotel Luna Azul. The accommodations are lovely-- so clean, tranquil and comfortable, and the restaurant and pool are PERFECT! I will always remember Rolf who was an incredibly conscientious host. I was pinching myself in disbelief when he sat with my 11-year-old to help her with her Spanish homework. This is surely a place like no other.

Throughout our recent trip to Costa Rica, our party of ten consistently recounted our memories and experiences at the Hotel Luna Azul as a major highlight. We loved the accommodations, as the owners were able to maintain a feeling of natural tranquility and local charm while providing a good level of comfort. We did not opt for the additional A/C and did get a little hot by the end of the day, but we loved waking up with fresh air. I was able to do some exercises in the morning on our private balcony, and a group of howler monkeys decided to visit the trees right adjacent to two of the rooms, so that was very exciting to witness! We visited 3 beaches from our visit--Playa Nosara, where we enjoyed surfing for the first time, Playa Ostional--a black sand beach--where we unfortunately did not get to see turtles due to the full moon and dry season combination, and Playa San Juanillo, a cove-like beach area where we enjoyed an amazing boat ride, and you have to ask for Captain Mike by asking locals where to find him. I want to mention the astounding quality and service we experienced. We were really blown away. I especially loved the avocado and shrimp salad, the mango and avocado salad, and the fresh local fish. The kids loved the breakfasts and, in particular, the fresh fruit and homemade jam make with 6 local fruits. It was a lovely stay that will have a lasting impression on our family, and it is the one place that I'd really love to return to someday soon!

This was our first time to Costa Rica and we will be back to Hotel Luna Azul to visit Rolf, Andreas, Fino along with the rest of the pleasant smiling Luna Azul staff. We actually read the reviews on trip advisor and booked it from reading them alone, you have to go, then you get what guest are talking about, it is just beautiful and peaceful and just what we wanted peace and quiet with relaxation. . Now our stay was for two weeks - and it was just lovely and full of fantastic adventures recommended by Rolf and Andreas. We had one day where we didn't go out on a venture where we enjoyed the beautiful pool, view, birds, monkeys and the peace and quiet along with a good book. We had so many outstanding day trips thanks to the suggestions of Rolf and Andreas - we went on a Tom Car Monkey tour - what a trip through the jungel, river beds, the birds, the monekys and just the good old adventure of it all was a lot of fun and a great company that runs the tours; the bird watching tour was oh so interesting and neat would do that again; the swiming with a turtle was also a first for us and having dolphins play along side the boat - we actually did this one twice it was so lovely being out on the water; the ziplining well was fun, except i was nervous but i survived it and said it was fun once it was over; our numerous day trips to different spots were all just great; The team just recommended and arranged such great adventures for us - it was just a fantastic trip you could do as little or as much (we did the much) as you wanted. We wouldn't have changed one thing that we did on the trip. Also i have to say the breakfast every day was great with a lovely bowl of fruit, yogurt, granola, eggs, rice, bacon or ham - it keps us going all day and the coffee they serve is lovely - make sure you go to the grocery store and bring some home, better then getting it at the airport! Rey and Britt both a lovely brew. Our dinners we lovely as well - and if you ask in advance they will make your favorite - okay i had the curried shrimp about five times,. We have fantastic photos of the howler monkey's that we saw almost daily sometimes from a distance but they were around and you could hear them, cool sounds the hole time with great brids - just writing this review while i'm back at work and thinking mmmmm when can we get back to our little home away from home. Thanks again Hotel Luna Azul for a great trip!

Room Tip: All of the rooms would be lovely - there are two rooms that face the pacific ocean we had one of those and it was lovely, we looked at the other rooms and they are nice too - there isn't a bad choice here!

I meant to write a review since my trip last March and finally get around to it. Rolf and Andreas are great hosts and own a gem in a special place. If you want lots of action, not your place, but if you want to relax and listen to the monkeys howl, stay here. Breakfast and dinner are also great and the kids loved Momo! We hope to be back some day...

At the end of a 3 week trip to Costa Rica we spent 5 nights in the tastefully appointed Parrot room.
Excellent standards prevail at the Luna Azul, from the design, furnishings, cleanliness and food through to the quality of service from the genial hosts Rolf and Andreas, ably assisted by resident professional tail wagger Fino. All other staff were equally professional. We appreciated the attention to detail, for example, the pretty dinner table arrangement on the evening of my birthday.
Rolf and Andreas gave us good advice regarding local activities, eateries and ammenities plus the use of reference books, useful for amateur wildlife spotters like us.
We don't like to be 'fussed around'; the level of service at the Luna Azul was ideal: attentive and friendly in an informal, relaxed atmosphere.
We have no hesitation in recommending this classy little hotel where, from the moment of arrival you are made tio feel welcome and can unwind in a stunning environment.
