I stayed 2 days there with my kids and another family. Everything was perfect, the shower outside, the pool, the view, the wifi and AC. And omg the food! By far the best meals we had in Costa Rica! The owner was very nice to us and gave us great tips and arrange our tour for the turtle. We brought whole pineapple and papaya to the waiter and they cut it and gave it to our kids. The staff was nice and the place was clean. It's hard to get there, but once you are there, it's worth it and you instantly relax. The property is very well taken care of, they maintain the garden very well. I will definitely go back if I ever come back to Costa Rica!

We only stayed one night at Hotel Luna Azul but it was so magical that we have been trying to figure out when we can come back again. Rolf was incredibly knowledgable and so fun to chat with. We learned so much about the area and especially the turtles. While we discovered that (despite what the internet says) full moons are NOT the optimal time to see an arribada, we were still able to visit Ostional and see a couple tracks in the morning as well as one of the most beautiful sunrises of my life. The food at Hotel Luna Azul was divine and everything we could have hoped for when it comes to authentic Costa Rican cuisine. The room was simple and clean with an outdoor bathroom (which we find fun) and large deck to watch the stars from. The grounds are immaculate and so full of life. We loved the untouched, natural feeling which was such a departure from the stale, lifeless grounds of the hotel we came from in Papagayo. Hotel Luna Azul is truly a gem and we endeavor to stay at beautiful and authentic places like this every time we visit Costa Rica.

Luna Azul is a rare gem of a boutique hotel. Very private & beautiful grounds. Comfortable quiet suites. Excellent cuisine - tasty simple breakfasts and gourmet dinners. Friendly courteous staff who clearly enjoy and take pride in their endeavours. Rolf is an exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful host. The dolphin/snorkelling excursion was a lot of fun. So was the ATV activity. We were lucky enough to also experience guided Turtle hatching. All of which Rolf organized for us. A car is a must to enjoy the surrounding area & beaches. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Hotel Luna Azul. Enjoy!

Visit this place regularly since 2008, always delivers in every aspect: You walk in, immediately feeling relaxed, views and food never disappoints, in fact exceeds expectations. The staff make you feel like your home amongst family. Every detail has been thought of and you just know when you find a place of such quality. “If there were a place which puts time back on your life, this is mine!” Thanks Rolf

We thoroughly enjoyed this place. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves and were able to enjoy the scenic views aside the pool and nature. Great staff and atmosphere. The shrimp was my favorite dish of the night

We love Luna Azul! The food is always great, and Rolf is always so welcoming. We feel like part of the family, and love the fact that we are so close. Beautiful views, a lovely atmosphere, a charming host, thoughtful and attentive staff, and great food. What more could you want??? We are so glad to be neighbors. <3

This is such a beautiful place! Rolf is the most amazing host and such a nice guy. He helped arrange a tour to see the turtles, provided a map for us, and recommended a place to eat in town. Breakfast was so delicious! Everything was absolutely wonderful! We will be back to visit again!

Finally, after all this time of being good people, the universe finally gave us a gift: this place! It is, literally, a hidden gem. The place was clean, the staff was friendly/professional/polite/competent, and Rolf (one of the owners) was just a delightful person. He knows a lot about the customs of Costa Rica, so if you have any questions, he's more than happy to answer them. We took advantage of that. Also, he's a biologist, so he can tell you a whole lot of interesting things about the fauna. Interesting guy. Lots of critters show up on the property because that's where they live, and unless you are staying at a Hilton by the airport, you will be having encounters with them. For the people that complained about the location not being near the beach, whose fault was that, huh? They couldn't have checked the map first? Ok. I am not here for that. I just think that so many people like to blame everything on other people as a choice in life. Apologies. Moving on.... The food was great and delicious. The chef's skills were definitely Los Angeles quality ready! Our room had a beautiful balcony that overlook this amazing greenery and then the ocean behind it. Simply breathtaking! The toilet, sink and shower are outdoors, but really well planned out and private. No, you are not sharing with anyone and no one can see you. It was a trip taking a shower while it was raining. It was something I never I knew I would experience. Sounds simple, but it was definitely something new. Anything we wanted to do, we just needed to ask Rolf and he made it happen, with plenty of details before we decide if we wanted to go for it or not. No pressure at all. We were there for the turtles Arribadas and he told us when they were coming and which days are the best to check in at the hotel in order to not miss this grand monthly event. The beaches nearby has rough sand, so bring sandals or aqua shoes for comfort when walking on the sand. We had a rental car, so we drove to all sorts of locations and beaches up and down the road. Rough road, by the way, so make sure you get an SUV. You get used to it quickly. I mean, if the locals can do it, when can't you? ;-) Bring mosquito repellent because this is Costa Rica...and don't spray on any rubber material or touch soft plastic stuff without washing your hands first because that stuff kind of corrodes them. I left a palm print on my phone's "wet bag". Anyhow, this is a sure bet for a peaceful stay with quality service. Just remember to: rent an SUV, there are small stretches of rough road, and mosquito repellent. We will definitely be going back!

This was a fantastic place to spend a few days in full nature. We are a family of 5 and we had 2 connecting rooms so we really felt together. The semi outdour showers are wonderful, you really get the empression you're taking a shower in the jungle. The view from the main living room is breathtaking. The children spent a great time in the overflowing swimming pool. Throughout the hotel you are surrounded by trees, monkeys and birds. Our host really helped us to be at the right time and day to see the turtles. Super helpfull, super flexible, super kind! Thank you Felix

We are travelling in Costa Rica and through our adventure, we have seen many different hotels. None of them was like Luna Azul. This place is magical and makes you feel like coming home the moment you park your car. The Hotel has few small bungalows and each of them has an amazing veranda with a view in the wild. We have chosen Room Pacifico because here you can enjoy the afternoon sun and sunset. The rooms are spotless and every morning after breakfast the cleaning employees already made the room. The highlight of the hotel is the Restaurant. This is none like usual hotel buffet-style type. Everything is made freshly. Fresh bred like we are only used to have in Switzerland. Did not see bread like that for a long time. For the dinner, you can choose between 4 starters and 4 main dishes. The small menu guarantees high-quality dishes. The cusine is famous in this region so it happens, that even people from outside reserve a table to enjoy the foods. You don't have to worry as a guest of Rolf you can be sure you will always have your table. You don't have direct access to the ocean from here but the next beach is 5 min away by car. Rolf was an excellent host, he talked to us about nature and gave us a lot of value. He knows many locals and if you are planning a tour it is worthwhile to consult with Rolf first. Unfortunately, we have to leave today but this hotel will stay in our memories. Thank you, Rolf, and to all the employees.
