I have been to Banana Azul in Costa Rica, two years ago in May with my now fiance.


-It's small. Only 12 rooms, I think. The bartender Franklin was the hardest working and most polite kid I ever met. Even put a small bottle of wine and a fruit tray in our room on my fiance's birthday, and would not accept money for it. (We gave him a HUGE tip at the end.)
-No Kids! An adults only hotel.
-There were only a handful of people on the beach at any given time, at best. Almost private.
-An hour leasurely walk into town, along the beach, to get a delicious meal. If "the beach hut", the french restaraunt, is still open, go there!
-Meals at the hotel run you ~$7 for lunch and ~12 for dinner. We never ate anything there we didn't love. Our total dinner and bar tab (for a week) ran us about $400. Try the cheeseburger for lunch- best I ever ate!
-free wireless if you bring your laptop.
-Very very friendly and nice staff.

We stayed in an Ocean room. Loved it.

It's not a place to go if you are looking for 5 star luxury, but they have everything you need.

Any questions, feel free to PM me. I can't give this place enough praise!
