Expect to be delighted by this hotel because it is special. The staff are excellent and really try to make you feel welcome. The rooms are lovely, airy and restful with nice roofed decks. The breakfasts are appetizing and substantial and there is always lots of fresh fruit on offer. There is even a coffee service on the beach at 6 am for early risers who want to relax to the sounds of waves on the shore. This is a visually stunning place with beautifully tended gardens, lily ponds, koi fish and turtles and happy dogs and cats who help make it feel like home. Nice beach. About a half hour walk to Puerto Viejo or $4 taxi ride. A good restaurant and bar means you really never have to leave the property to have a lovely time. I'll be back!
- 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.
