Reviewed July 27, 2010

We stayed four nights in start of July 2010. We sought the place to rest out on the beach between travelling Andes and Galapagos. The setting is bautiful and the view from the huge verandas with hammocks towards the Pacific amazing. We observed whales jumping evry day. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the food fair. Azul - the guarding dog - was a good pal and tour guide everyday.
The place is located on "the wrong side" of the coast road meaning that you have to walk five minutes down to the nice beach. You should also have in mind that you have to use the local buses going to the nearest small towns of Montanita, Salango and Puerto Lopez.
During our stay we sorrowly experienced heavy rain every daywith an invasion of ants onto the floors in our room every night. This needs attention from the owners.

My husband and I stayed in Azuluna for our honeymoon. It was exactly what we were looking for. We loved everything about it. It is the perfect combination between amazing food, incredible landscape and wonderful hospitality. I'm a vegetarian and had not problems with food. The place felt familiar, the rooms were beautiful decorated and after four days of being there we didn't want to leave. We enjoyed being in a quiet and clean beach as well. We're planning to come back this year.

Azuluna was a delight from start to finish. Galito and his lovely wife run this place as though it was your second home. We immediately felt welcome, and our accommodations were clean and spacious. We took all our meals there, and delighted in fresh fish, seafood and local dishes. Food was inexpensive and overly plentiful, and the Tres Leches cake and banana pancakes were out of this world. Anything we needed, we just had to ask.
Our room had a shower with a full length one-way window, where you could shower off the sand and salt from the nearby ocean and look at the glorious scenery. This lodge is off the beat and path, with glorious stretches of beaches all to ourselves. Guaranteed a restful stay. We tried surfing, went horseback riding along the beach and stretched out in the shade to the sound of surf and birds. Even the dogs were friendly! We loved our buddy Azul! Not your trpical chain hotel, but a lovely, rustic change!
I would return there tomorrow. Loved the area and the lodge. It was hard to leave.
