As first time travellers to Costa Rica we thought we had found a piece of heaven. Roberto, Frederick, Erika and all the wonderful staff provided an experience everyone should enjoy. It is not for everyone however, you must enjoy nature, enjoy great service, enjoy spectacular beaches, enjoy great food at at a reasonable cost, enjoy the private massage in the grass hut on the beach and most of all meet other interesting travellers. Puerto Viejo offers many other restaurants for varied tastes from many countries, Italian, French and seafood alike. It is hike to town and not really advisable to walk after dark. Banana Azul offers the best value and variety for reasonable cost. We are already planning our return trip.
- 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.
