“Amazing boutique hotel”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

This hotel is fantastic.
Extremely clean, well cared for and without question the most well located hotel in the entire area. The surf break is directly in front of the hotel. Richard was a incredible help throughout the entire trip, from planning the vacation to our stay in his casita. Casa Azul is also far enough off the main road that the dust from the vehicles is not a problem which is something many of the other hotels don't mention.

Fantastic trip and a wonderful hotel. We will definitely come back to this place.

Of my six trips to CR over the years, Casa Azul is the BEST place I have stayed hands down.This trip I went with a few friends of mine and we reserved an ocean view room and the casita for one week. The location is perfect; right on the beach and within walking distance of every amenity you need (groceries, bakery, bank, shopping, beer, surf shop, etc). The property is stunning and well cared for. The owner, Richard, is very welcoming and cares about his clients. Clean rooms and linens, lots of security built-in including a well-built safe in each room, beautiful pool and property, right on the beach, close to everything, what more can you ask for?

Richard, thanks for everything! I've already told my friends about the trip and Casa Azul...and when I return to CR I'll be booking a room at your place again. Dave K - New Jersey

Room Tip: Every room is the house (except for the small back room) has an ocean view.

It is hard to find anything new to add to the other "Excellent" reviews.One thing that has been mentioned is that Richard (the owner)is an real gem, which is true. He keeps the property beautifully maintained. He also makes sure that anything that is not quite right is corrected immediately - such as replacing an air conditioner that had stopped working.

The building(s) themselves are lovely - colorful and full of great paintings. We visited at a very hot time, but slept well in the air conditioned bedrooms.

The location is interesting because one would think that Casa Azul is miles from civilization - however the main street of Santa Teresa is just at the end of the driveway. We could saunter down the driveway to get lattes and baked goods for breakfast, and ice cream in the afternoon. It was the best of both worlds.

We were visiting with friends/family and filled up the Casa and Cassita with our party. A terrific place for a family reunion! We will be back to Casa Azul, for sure!

First things first: Casa Azul is a little beach front resort in a little beach town. It's not the Hilton Honolulu, so don't expect pool service or to get fresh sheets and towels every night.
That said, in this little spot of Costa Rica Casa Azul has the absolute best location and private surroundings. The owner, Richard (ex-pat American) was there during our stay and was very attentive to any questions or concerns we had.

My wife and I stayed in the casita with our two small kids, and it was perfect. Just the right amount of amenities. We were there at the start of the rainy season, and the tin roof during the nightly thunderstorms was quite an earful! (not complain'...it's all part of the local ambiance)
The pool on the property was lovely. Good for the kids and for a cool dip.
The beach is literally right outside the back gate.
Lots of lizards and even monkeys hang around the spacious property, set back from the road. The water is from a private well on the property (i.e. CLEAN to drink!).
There was a good safe in our casita, which was a must. WiFi internet would have been nice, buy hey, they have that for free at any local bakery or cafe, so it's no big deal.
