This hotel is amazing, it exceeding our expectations! Location perfect, right on Negra beach! Rooms exceptional (especially the tree house). Staff extremely friendly, warm & will go out of their way to ensure you have all you need. Food also exceptional! Very good breakfast, great cocktails! Free coffee/tea available from 5am on the beach to watch the sunrise, just one of the many great touches. Porto Viejo a 5 min car drive, taxis available or you can hire bikes from the hotel. I will definitely be returning to this hotel.
Location faar from city Water and internet failed Restaurant ordinary and expensive
The bungalow was so charming and good sized. Perfectly clean. The beach view unforgettable. The staff were warm, efficient and kind. Actually sad to leave them.
We did not have an air conditioner in our unit... our fault. Definitely would prefer one next time.
In general a super nice Hotel at least for the older rooms in the main building. I cannot rate the other additions since we didn't stay there. We stayed three nights in the bigger rooms (Dolphin and Howler). Both have got nice balconies with a hammock and lots of space, a big bed with a mossy net and a fan and a bathroom with a shower (for Howler also with a large bathtub). Howler's got the view towards the ocean, Dolphin is on the opposite side of the building, but the view is still nice. Because of the mossy net on the bed and all the big doors, you don't really need AC since there is plenty of fresh air coming in. Combined with the ceiling fan it is perfect. The restaurant prepares yummy meals. In case you stay for a really long time you might run out of options to try but there is a special every day.
The only thing I can think of which could have been better is the mossy net. From Africa I know some nets that are basically box shaped and the sides are vertical. They would give much more room on the bed compared to the standard nets with a ring at the top where the sides are angled. Especially in a place like this with quite a few mosquitoes I would have preferred the box shaped version where it is less likely to touch the net during the night. Might be a bit more difficult to hang it from the ceiling though.
Banana Azul is a lovely hotel! The location was a 5 minute cab from the town, which had plenty of bars and restaurants for the evening. It’s right on the beach which made it super easy to just set up camp and relax there for the day. Food and drinks were also really good and staff were always really helpful! Would highly recommend!!
Each of our 23 beautiful guest rooms of the main hotel, built from local hardwoods, are unique. Across the street are the new Villas Banana Verde, four two-story luxury accommodations with a full kitchen and private plunge pool. Next door is Casa Las Brisas, our sister property, four rooms boasting ocean views and rustic hardwood design. Throughout the properties, there are a variety of outdoor living spaces, open-air kitchens and tropical outdoor baths. All are equipped with wireless internet and are in close proximity to the pool, beach and restaurant.
