Hotel Banana Azul
Banana Azul with friends
We stayed 4 at this hotel, front beach in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.
Very nice place with everything you need.
Very kind owners!
What I did appreciate a lot is the location of the hotel.
Right besoide the road, front of the beach.
Some restaurants around.
Good surf spot too.
Certainly a hotel to go with some friends to have a good time!
Thank you Banana Azul!
Unique Quality: Ocean beach front
Can't do much better than Banana Azul
Banana Azul is a wonderful 3 room small bed and breakfast located about 1.5km north of Puerto Viejo in Playa Negra.
Rooms consist of the two smaller "Sloth Cabinas" or the "Red Frog Room" (where we stayed).
Our room was located on the ground floor underneath where Collin and Roberto (the owners) live. The room is wonderfully decorated (the best I've seen in Costa Rica) and has a comfortable queen sized bed with big open windows and a ceiling and floor fan for ventilation. I never felt that a/c was needed and even got a little chilly at night (blankets are available). The room also has satellite color television. The real gem of this room is the bathroom (see pictures) - large and tiled with a hot water shower. Just outside the room is a large common area deck with a built in fish and turtle pond. There is a table and chairs for relaxing.
Breakfast (included in the price) is served upstairs in Collin and Roberto's dining area. We were there for four days and had something different and delicious every day. Coffee is available downstairs in the deck area early in the morning.
Unique Quality: The property is located right on the beach. It was probably 100 steps from our room to the ocean.
They also have four friendly dogs who love to accompany guests on walks to the beach.
Bicycles are available to borrow to ride into town (20 minute walk)
The hosts, Collin and Roberto, really go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and may even take guests to secret sports in the area that only locals know of (ask to go to the waterfall)
