In March this year me and my girlfriend spent two visits at Hotel Casa Azul in Santa Teresa in Costa Rica. When first arriving to Santa Teresa we went to another hotel which turned out to be very bad why we almost thought about leaving the town. When arriving to Casa Azul though, we realized that the problem was not the town, but the hotel we stayed at the first night.

Casa Azul however seemed to be a really nice place (why we also decided to come back after leaving Costa Rica for Nicaragua). The owner Richard is a really nice American who have owned and built the hotel more than ten years ago. You really feel that the hotel is his own place and not only a place where he is working. He looks after it like it would be his home...which it actually is. This also means that the place is very clean. The atmosphere is wonderful with a large area just in front of the beach where you can relax in the pool or in a hammock just watching the waves hit the beach.

We stayed in the smallest room which is also the cheapest alternative. For two people it is just enough if you want to live on a decent budget. You have your own bathroom and you have a small kitchen with a refridgerator and the possibility to make your coffee. Unfortunately you have no possibility of making your own food though.

Casa Azul is a wonderful place that I really recommend. There is though one thing that you as a client must be aware of when deciding staying at Casa Azul. There is a nightclub just next door which opened less than two years ago. The owners have a lack of moral which makes them play louder music than what is allowed by Costa Rican law. This is a problem if you are sensitive to loud sounds. Otherwise, I believe Casa Azul is the best place to spend some nights in Santa Teresa - A village I really recommend for those who haven´t been there…or have.

This is such a lovely hotel. We stayed in a hostel the first night in Santa Teresa and afterwards immediately left due to the state of it, and we took one look at Casa Azul and stayed there for 5 days.
It's spotlessly clean - the maids are adorable - and the facilities are superb. The rooms all have their own hammock looking over the (lovely) pool which backs right back into the beach, and there's a well equipped kitchen.
Richard wasn't there when we walked in but his staff called him and he was really helpful seeing as we didn't have a place to go, be made it really easy. He warned us about the music from the club nearby which was really no problem at all - it's mostly all blocked out by the double glazing.
You won't find anywhere nicer in Santa Teresa!!

Stayed last minute and Rich the owner was nice enough to allow five of us to stay in one of his larger casa's. Spectacular pool with ocean views, 20 seconds to some of the best surf in Costa Rica. Far removed from the dusty main road just up the driveway. Kitchen had more than what we needed to cook some killer meals. Immaculate grounds and it was nice to Rich the owner with his nice Lab making sure every attention to detail was met which it was! Will be back with my own family in the future.

We rocked into Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa and went to where we were supposed to be saying. It was a hole. After a long drive, we were very low. In the off chance, we walked past this place and checked if there was a room. We got a bungalow with three beds in it. A double and two singles. Air con. Nice bathroom. Kitchen with all that you need and more. Oh and you're 100 metres from the Pacific and a spectacular beach. Not enough? We had a pool, a hammock, close to everything.

Then there's the owner, Richard. A yank. What a guy. We caught Yellow Fin Tuna during the day and by night he leant us his own BBQ to cook it on. We shared a beer too. He knows the area and will advise of how to respect the place. He looks out for you and your enjoyment.

We were supposed to stay a night, we stayed 3 and didnt want to leave but pulled ourselves away to see more of Costa Rica. I will be back though.

Price? I'd pay 5 times what it cost and it would still be good value.

Cheers Rich!!

Oh and this is English Matt from the two Matts, Mike and Mitchell. There just before Christmas.

Room Tip: Go for the bungalow even if you dont need all the space. You can afford it!
