No one in sight

This is a beautiful hotel designed for an absolute getaway from all of civilization... for those who need to disconnect from the workd for a few days ... if you rent a vehicle, you will still have a few towns and activities close by... 20 minutes form the hotel there is a Wildlife refuge and beaches where Turtles come and lay their eggs, which you can witness... you can stay at the Hotel or go through a rural drive.. The staff is beyond nice...

Authentic Costa Rica Beach Experience - Boutique Resort

The Azul Ocean club is a wonderful resort in Playa Azul on the Guanacaste coast. Approximately 30 miles south from Tamarindo and 14 miles norh of Nosara. Very close to Ostional and the turtle refuge. This hotel only has 20 units and is on the beach with great amenities. This is a great place to base out of while exploring other Costa Rica sights. A local tour company is very close and provides tours to Miravalle Volcano area, waterfalls, horseback riding, ATV tours, etc. You definitely want a car to get here and in the rainy season the coast highway can be challenging as it's graded dirt for most of the drive for much of highway 160 to the resort. The small local towns of Marbella (to the north) and San Juanillo (to the south) are 3-4k away and they have local restaurants and small grocery stores. This is not a tourist area, this is a local area with a beautiful, small resort in the middle of it!

We are in the units above the resort and use the resort amenities and the restaurants for some of our meals. Reasonably priced, quiet, and very, very beautiful. Definitely worth the stay.

Well, we can say we traveled a bit by now and this hotel is in the top 3 of wherever we stayed before. The rooms are spacious and very well decorated/equiped. Everything is clean. The common areas very well designed and organized. The pools perfect. The beach perfect. Time slows when you are here. Breakfast can be improved (its a bit simplistic) but it serves its purpose. Note: we were ther off season, some thing may not be true if the hotel is filled.
