This was our second trip to Banana Azul. It's a place that allows you to pursue your holiday/vacation in your own style. Our last visit found us exploring and doing some of the more exciting things Gecko tours and Banana Azul have to offer. This time it was like coming home with a warm welcome from Colin, Roberto, Fred and David and the rest of the staff. The restaurant, which was quite good, has moved up a notch with an evening meal selection of vegetarian,meat and fish entrees. For price and quality, it can't be beat. Drinks are always made with personal attention at the bar. We relaxed and enjoyed the restful ambience amidst the hotel's lush garden, pool and beach.
The unexpected treat was being invited by Colin to celebrate his 50th birthday at the Koki Beach restaurant. A fun time, a great crowd and a fitting tribute!!!
Can't wait to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Banana Azul hotel is a small and simple hotel north of town on Playa Negra. The small boutique hotel has been created with care using local products and a philosophy that emphasizes relaxation. We cater to adults, 16 years and over. Blooming gardens adorn the property, as does several freely-hanging hammocks, providing the perfect spot for afternoon napping or leisurely reading. A meandering pond inhabited by fish and turtles flows through portions of the property adding a lighter element to the ongoing natural soundtrack of waves crashing against the shoreline. The hotel consists of 22 beautiful guest rooms with private baths, fans (some with A/C), and free WiFi. Most rooms are on the second floor of the main building, and open onto a large veranda with sweeping ocean views and of the garden. Banana Azul offers its guests a quaint restaurant that serves a complimentary filling breakfast, variety of lunch options and refreshing drinks throughout the day and a relaxing three entre dinner option in a romantic atmosphere at night.
