This hotel is as isolated as you can get. It would be great for couples and adults who want a quiet peaceful break, with privacy and isolation. It has a Beautiful gym, Kind staff, Nice pool with swim up bar and Private beach. You can see monkeys in the trees and iguanas on the ground. JJ, Kevin, Frank and Randolf are great, kind and helpful.
There are many reasons why this hotel didn’t work for our family.
1. Ocean is not suitable for kids. Waves are massive and the undertow too strong to swim safely.
2. The hotel includes breakfast, which is very minimalistic so kids end up ordering items that are not offered on the included menu, therefore you end up paying extra for breakfast.
3. It is unlit dirt roads from any main roads and far from everything. You need a rental car or taxi to go anywhere and taxis run about $90-100 each way to the nearest city of Tamarindo.
4. The villas are clean but there are no separate bedrooms for any privacy. It’s a set up with a king size bed and multiple “day” beds or sofa beds in one big master bedroom which his open to the downstairs living room. The water-pressure is poor.
5. There is only 1 restaurant with 1 waiter on the premises for breakfast and dinner – and a pool side restaurant for lunch, anything else requires taxi or rental car. Our party of 10 was overwhelming to them.
6. $90 one way to nearest city and we would have needed 2 taxi’s to accommodate us with at least an hour advance notice to come for us.

Because of these reasons, we ended up checking out and leaving early, losing 2 days we paid for and paying an additional 2 days closer to Tamarindo and we are grateful to Vesa Tours for providing us transportation to a new hotel free of charge which would have cost us over $200.

Great place to relax and recuperate from the stress in life. Very quiet surrounded by coconut & mango trees, lots of palm tree too. Fantastic service, friendly staffs. Delicious seafood and a must try Costa Rican breakfast with plantains. Beautiful pool and walking distance to the beach. From your bedroom, you can hear the waves and feel the breeze. Our suite also has an enclosed outdoor shower. A wonderful overall experience

Visited this hotel in January for 5 days and didn’t want to leave. Our room was incredible and the view of the ocean was absolutely stunning. It is a bit hard to get to and you do have to drive 25 km on an unpaved road. If you are looking for a quote Hydeaway, this place is perfect!! Food was great. There are wild horses that come to the resort once in a while. Their black sand beach is outstanding: very secluded and absolutely stunning. We would definitely come back here again!

My wife and I stayed at Azul Ocean club and loved how welcoming the staff was. The property was incredibly beautiful and very peaceful. We enjoyed the location of it as well, as it allowed for us to visit great beaches to the North and South.

The accommodations and staff were GREAT! A wonderful reasonably priced place to get away from it all! Take reading material as the volcanic sand beach is way HOT even in Feb. Lounge around the pool, and eat, drink, and read to your heart's content. Great TIME!!!

Room Tip: Try to get one of the rooms with a good view of the Pacific!!!
