      Great location and stay

      Just a short walk (5-10 min) from the marina ballena national park. Beautiful area, near a couple of small grocery stores and a couple larger ones if you have a car. Restaurant food was good. Wifi was very good. rooms are pretty basic and could be updated, but overall met my needs for everything.

      Great stay

      The hotel was great. It did take about an hour to cool the room down after check in but after that, it was fine. The staff was very helpful . The beach was close and food was above average. We will stay there again!

      Decent hotel in a wonderful spot

      This is a very basic hotel. Nothing fancy but it was clean and had good a/c. Beds were ok but not great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a pool and a restaurant on the premises. Ten minute walk to the beach and close to lots of restaurants and other businesses.

      The location was wonderful for easy access to the beach and a SCUBA diving trip to Cano Island. The rooms were not fancy, but adequate, though they had a kind of chemical smell from some cleaning solution I assume. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was tasty.

      Cute little hotel near Uvita and the beach

      The Hotel Bahia Azul is a wonderful, basic little motel in Uvita, Costa Rica, just down the road from a stunningly gorgeous beach, and near many activities, including the Envision Festival, which is about 5 minutes away by car. The restaurant on site is delicious. I mean REALLY good. We ate there at least twice a day, and didn’t feel much need to eat elsewhere, as they served everything from tuna ceviche to steak to seafood pasta with clams, mussels, crab, fish, squid and other delectable delights. The staff was super friendly and helpful, calling taxis for us and being generally wonderful. It is a very basic hotel, but our room had three beds and wonderful air conditioning, which is one of the most important things when staying in a hot, humid jungle environment. I would definitely stay there again.
