What a view. Stunning. Attention to detail. Love the local staff. Good mixologist on hand. Very relaxing place. Enjoyed the sunset a popular spot. This is a must see place.

These guys are trying, and I give them that. Food wasn't bad, either, but they're charging fine dining prices (meal for 4 with 2 bottles of wine was $250), and the food simply doesn't live up to that. I'd go have a drink and maybe some appetizers to soak in the beautiful building and views, but wouldn't go all in... More

El Catillo/Azul is that magical place in Ojochal Costa Rica where you think you have gone to heavan. Great food and the entertainment on Wednesdays at sunset is always on par with the view. A first class experience all the way. The service is top noch and the chicken parmasion was right on point. I love this place and Scott... More

By far the best Breakfast. I couldnt eat store bought eggs anymore. The fruit was delicous and sweet. Watcing the mackaws screech by at breakfast isn't so bad. They also blend the best smoothies.

We might have come here on an off night, because the everything we ordered took extremely long to get to the table and was not well prepared once it got there. I wanted to like this, because the views are amazing, and the people are quite nice, but it really was underwhelming in so many ways. I can only say... More

We had a lovely dinner at Azul... started with cocktails to watch sunset and then moved to the table for dinner. The view is spectacular, service great at a nice leisurely pace and dinner was great. Especially enjoyed the Moroccan chicken and the tenderloin. Our server Harrson was very attentive and the manager Scott very friendly.

We booked this restaurant for a special meal to celebrate New Years Eve. We confirmed our reservation twice, the last time 2 weeks before, but when we got there they had no record of it. They pretended our table 'wasn't ready yet' and said we could drink at the bar whilst they sorted it out. The bar man was friendly... More

Despite a wonderful view and nice facilities, the service was horrendous. When you pay good money for a quesadilla and a Pepsi, I at least expect speedy service and some accommodation to client's requests. Our order was a quesadilla and a mix platter (4 chicken fingers, 5 calamari, raw vegs, a tiny cup of hummus), however they managed to take... More
