All of the positive things said about Mono Azul in recent reviews are spot on. I'm a single F "baby boomer" who stayed here for 3 nights and am so glad I did. The location is perfect, and there are local (modern) buses which stop just a few steps away about every 15 minutes for the 15 minute ride to...

John and his wife, (Minnesota Transplants) Have a wonderful, centrally located hotel, my wife daughter and I spent two nights with them and were satisfied based on the price. We had 3 meals a day at the restaurant with zero complaints, the monkeys visited daily the 2 small swimming pools were quaint and refreshing. Rooms are sparse, simple, clean and...

A clean, comfortable room set in a well-groomed, garden-like environment that resembles a mini-Costa Rica rainforest, with two clean pools, macaws flying into the trees and white-faced monkeys crossing above the road on a rope -- that's Mono Azul. I was in town for scuba training and my wife for private Spanish lessons. Mono Azul was ideal for us both...

Stayed in the hotel in our way to Manuel Antonio National Park for one night. Booked it based on this hotel being number 1 in the area as per trip advisor. Far from it....... Over priced. Broken bed. Noisy fan. No hot water in the shower or sink. Worst of all, when my son tried to adjust the shower head...

Hello Irfan, I am sorry you had a bad experience here at Mono Azul. The showers in our basic rooms, like many hotels here in Costa Rica, are called Suicide showers. They have electricity to instantly heat the water. They are not meant to be touched just for safety precautions because water and electricity don't mix well. We have since...

Solo female traveler. I booked a last minute deal for this hotel through a third party online that ended up being incorrect. I called the hotel and they were very accommodating to me. I was able to cancel through the third party and book through mono Azul directly for the same price. The owners were very sweet and helpful. Tom...

Its a cute place with friendly staff and a nice little pool to chill. The hotel is a good option, if you want to stay close to Manuel Antonio and rather want to relax for a night, but not pay too much. Rooms are great for a good sleep, other than that I would not spend much more time in...

The rooms were clean and tropical without being tacky. The staff was extraordinarily friendly and pura vida. Food was great. We are simple people and don't need much. Probably too much for the rugged backpack traveler and not enough for the posh ones. We loved it.

Although we weren't staying in the rooms (our adventure tour had us staying at a different hotel), the restaurant was great!
