After nine days in paradise at the Banana Azul we came home feeling like we left new friends and family behind. The Banana Azul was more than we imagined it would be - it is truly paradise and Colin and the entire staff do not miss a beat! Every part of our stay there was just perfect - all of the little details are so much appreciated. Service is excellent and genuine, and the grounds are just so beautiful. Extra points for all of the love put into the landscaping. The food is great, all three meals, especially the dinner buffet that changes daily. You never really have to leave the Banana Azul if you don't want to - they take care of it all. They will hook up all of your excursions and if staying by the pool or laying on the beach all day is your thing, they will take care of you. Coffee served on the beach at sunrise?!! Just perfect. We miss you all already and have reserved for next year. Can't wait!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Banana Azul hotel is a small and simple hotel north of town on Playa Negra. The small boutique hotel has been created with care using local products and a philosophy that emphasizes relaxation. We cater to adults, 16 years and over. Blooming gardens adorn the property, as does several freely-hanging hammocks, providing the perfect spot for afternoon napping or leisurely reading. A meandering pond inhabited by fish and turtles flows through portions of the property adding a lighter element to the ongoing natural soundtrack of waves crashing against the shoreline. The hotel consists of 22 beautiful guest rooms with private baths, fans (some with A/C), and free WiFi. Most rooms are on the second floor of the main building, and open onto a large veranda with sweeping ocean views and of the garden. Banana Azul offers its guests a quaint restaurant that serves a complimentary filling breakfast, variety of lunch options and refreshing drinks throughout the day and a relaxing three entre dinner option in a romantic atmosphere at night.
