6/10 Good

Beware that to get to this hotel alone, is an adventure. You have to drive on 10 miles worth of dirt/unpaved/potholes to get to this hotel. The resort was nice, but our room was a little outdated. Also, expect bugs to drop in and out when you open the door. We went when it was raining and little critters kept coming in and falling on top of our beds.

10/10 Exceptional

This property was a nice surprise. I was skeptical at first after reading the reviews, but took my chances anyway. It is definitely off the beaten path - a dirt road with a lot of washboard leading to the hotel, but well worth it for us. But I would bring snacks/drinks if you don't want to travel after getting there (Marbella isn't much of a town). The food at the restaurant was very good and the pool bar was kind of more like pub food, but fine. The staff were all friendly and polite. I loved the room - spacious, clean and comfortable. The outside shower was great for those sandy days on the beach. The essential oil diffuser was a nice touch too! It is very quiet and private - unlike Tamarindo where we went after this - wishing we had stayed longer at Azul instead. I would return to this location.

Fantastic Place to Stay! 😀
My husband and I stayed here for 10 days on our first visit to Costa Rica. Azul Ocean Hotel was awesome! All the staff were amazing and so friendly! Being right on the ocean was like a dream come true! The pool was fantastic and so relaxing! All the grounds and rooms were so clean and maintained. My husband used the fitness room daily. I enjoyed relaxing on the beds listening to the ocean. The black sand beach was beautiful and we loved going there daily. The sunsets were absolutely gorgeous! Our daughter who lives in Nosara came to visit and stayed at the hotel for a few days in a suite. The food was great! If I had to suggest one thing, it would be if they could offer desserts at the restaurant…I have a sweet tooth 😊. I highly recommend this hotel! 😊
