Located in Puerto Viejo and right on the shores of the Caribbean, Hotel Banana Azul offers 14 guest rooms in one building and luxurious suites, cabins and apartments in another. The property itself is breathtakingly beautiful, surrounded by aromatic tropical gardens and featuring an ocean view.

The uniquely shaped outdoor pool and attached hot tub are surrounded by plenty of green spaces. Whether you go for a swim, soak in the hot tub or simply pull up a lounge chair and read a book as you soak up the sun, you can't beat the relaxing vibe. If you prefer the waves of the ocean, the beach is just steps from the hotel and is the perfect spot to relax or splash around with the kids.

Whether you spend the day in the pool or you book one of the many nearby adventure tours, you'll want to end your afternoon with a beachside massage. Azul Beach Club offers a range of treatments performed by true professionals. Whether private or a side-by-side couples' massage, choose between a basic relaxation massage or a deep-tissue treatment to stimulate blood flow and improve circulation.

Hotel Banana Azul is known for hosting some of the most beautiful weddings and engagement parties, not to mention fun beachside bonfires, in the area. A caterer ensures you have plenty of food for your guests and can accommodate a variety of dietary needs by allowing you to design your own menu.

The hotel's restaurant creates fresh and simple dishes using only the best ingredients. A full breakfast begins at 5:30 each morning and includes cereal, yogurt, omelets, banana pancakes and a variety of other hot breakfast items. The hotel keeps lunch simple, opting for traditional burgers, chicken and other grillable items. By the time dinner rolls around, you'll find a fixed menu consisting of chicken, beef, fish and a range of vegetarian issues. Salads, soups and homemade desserts are also available and if you'd like, you can add wine, beer or your favorite cocktail to your meal. The restaurant provides dairy- and gluten-free options.

Hotel Banana Azul offers several different travel packages and even allows you to create your own as you work to book your best vacation.

"I went with my family to Hotel Banana Azul and we loved it. I loved sitting on the patio in the hammock and relaxing while gazing at the ocean. Our room was great and we even could connect our iPad to the internet while we where there. I would recommend this hotel to anybody who is going to visit Puerto Viejo."
