Our Favorite Hotel in Puerto Viejo Banana Azul

Chillaxing around the pool at Hotel Banana Azul in Puerto Viejo Costa Rica.

We love Hotel Banana Azul located on Playa Negra just north of Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.

We'd known about Banana Azul for some time and even corresponded a couple times with the owners about doing a video review of their place but just couldn't find the time to make it down to Puerto Viejo. Finally, we did. Twice in one month in fact. Boy, are we glad we did. It would have been nice if we could have stayed a little longer... but we'll take what we can get.

Banana Azul is just what the doctor ordered. Pretty much on the beach, jungle-y, lushed-out landscaping and the rooms have that COOL 'bungalow on the beach' vibe... and the bonus- the food is really good there. So, needless to say Banana Azul is the perfect place to veg-out and do whatever.

Banana Azul has that rustic feel, here's one of the rooms.

We think the owners, Colin and Roberto, did a really nice job creating the perfect atmosphere and we think you'll agree. Anyway, here's our video REVIEW of Hotel Banana Azul. *I don't want to imply there are not other nice hotels in the Puerto Viejo area, I'm sure there are. Obviously we haven't stayed in them all... but so far, this is the one we like BEST.

Unknown said... funny. I was going to say that but didn't know how far to take it....I "offend" enough people on this blog so I thought I'd hold back a little...

No problem. No offense to take. That's quite a good looking reflection I might add. My partner and I love CR and we wish we had found your site and blogs much sooner.
