Please do not get suckered into staying here based on internet Pics or "other" reviews. The place is hardly within walking distance to any water or business area in town- The very OLD worn out rooms were 14" X 14" square cinder-block painted blue walls with VERY DIM overhead light -.Toilets old- no drain covers in shower (Dead Man's Shower Head) - You know the ones.. 2 small wires going into the shower head which either heat a small coil for a little warm water or send you to your grave if they short out!! Restaurant food mediocre typical "Pinto Gallo" with little protein. Fortunately, it was only a travel stop-over on our way to Osa/Corcovado for 4 fabulous nights at the Iguana Lodge- I would rather have driven into the evening then wasted my $200.00 per night here- Think Mexicali border Notell/Motel- Locks on doors were the best part of the night. Came with Breakfast which was probably worth about 90 cents (Rice-Beans and one egg)- Trust me on this one- We stayed and 4 other REALLY nice locations on our two week visit- Don't do this disaster- BW

SEÑORES TRIPADVISOR:
Está opinión no corresponde a mi hotel, ni siquiera tenemos paredes de ladrillo y mucho menos paredes azules dentro de las habitaciones, mis habitaciones son muy amplias y espaciosas no 14"x14" como dice el comentario y en mis registros no tengo nadie recientemente que coincida con este señor, POR FAVOR REVISAR!

Se qué hay 2 lugares más con un nombre similar en Jaco y Quepos, puede ser que el huésped se quedara en alguno de esos y no en el mío.
Les agradezco revisen por qué una opinión cómo está puede traer muchos problemas

We just returned to California from an amazing trip to Costa Rica.
Uvita is a charming town with so much to offer those who just want to experience the laid back Tico life style.
We arrived in Uvita with no reservations or expectations. We were lucky enough to come upon the Bahia Azul, fortunately it was the shoulder season and there was room for us.
We definitely recommend this place with all our hearts, being centrally located, and you even get a great breakfast every morning!
Their excellent dinner menu was an added convenience to a long day exploring the empty beaches and waterfall hiking.
Beautiful Whale's Tail park is just down the street and a nice walk away.
Perhaps I shouldn't give praise to this place so as to keep it available for my next visit!

My husband and I found this place literally as a back up plan to our failed attempt at a stay in Drake Bay. We wanted something close to the beach with electrify, running water, and air conditioning. That's pretty much all this place had. The furniture was dated and the mattress was old. It rolled toward the middle and was hard. We stayed on the first floor and there were people staying above us. Any time they were awake, we were awake. It was like a 500lb person was running across the floor. The room smelled extremely strongly of toilet freshener. So much so that our clothes smelled of it. There were no washcloths or hand towels, only two, small bath towels. The good thing was that the air conditioning worked. The breakfast left a lot to be desired. We ended up going elsewhere after the first 2 days of breakfast there. We had many ants in our room and actually the last day we were ready to check out found termites. Also, the nearby beach is not very close (5 minute drive) and you have to pay to park and you have to pay to enter the beach as it is a National Park. We went up the road about 15 kilometers to Playa Dominical where the beach was better, you didn't have to pay, you could rent boards, chairs, umbrellas and much more. Difficult to set up snorkeling to Isla del Cano as they need at least 6 people to make it count for the ship and it is likely that it's people from other hotels to try and make that work.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor as the bottom is extremely noisy

I am sorry to hear that you don't like are place, are typical costarrican breakfast and our beautiful beach and the Marino Nacional Park either. If you like more Dominical definitely it was not the place for you, you really try to keep aut place simple and clean like our beautiful Nacional Park. If you have ants in your rooms was because you did not let us to clean your room in the 4 days that you stay with us.

Let's start by saying I am not one to complain, nor am I high maintenance. When I arrived the motel had notified me that I had only booked for one person. I booked through Expedia so I guess I they hit me with a technicality of not clicking two persons. They charged me an additional $95.00 to which I paid with no hesitation. It should be noted that when you go on the Expedia website...the same price appears whether you have one or two persons.

The breakfast is the same everyday and very bland (scrambled eggs, beans/rice and toast or tortilla). The breakfast is very, very basic. We started going elsewhere in the morning after the having that three days in a row. We did have dinner on the first night and it was very good, I must say.

The rooms are very basic with dated furniture and mattresses. There was not one shower in five days that I was able to get hot water. They say there is a switch at the top of the shower head however; there is still no hot water. Several guests told me the same.

We had a pipe burst from the toilet that flooded our room thus saturating a leather bag and shoes. This is not their fault however; no apology or even a concern towards us. We were cleaning the room along with one of the staff for about an hour. No one ever approached us after to see if we needed anything. Some of our clothes and shoes were soaked. Again, not a big deal but they did not seem to care.

I would do your research prior to coming here. Do not expect much.

Lo siento mucho que no estuvieramos de acuerdo a sus estandares, somos un lugar modesto, sencillo y muy amigable con el ambiente, estamos ubicados en una zona muy vulnerable muy cerca del Parque Nacional Marino Ballena y por eso tratamos de vivir en armonia con la naturaleza. Lo siento mucho lo que pasó con su habitación, se quebró un tubo de baño y eso provocó la inundación, eso fue casi a la 1 a.m, yo estuve ahí abriendo la habitación y viendo el problema y luego dejé a mis empleados limpiando la habitación miestras yo llamaba el fontanero para que viniera a primera hora en la mañana y cuando ustede llegaron no quise ir a molestar por que ya era muy tarde. A primera hora estaba el fontanero aquí y tuvo que esperar por largo rato por que ustedes no salían de la habitación y cuando salieron en lugar de pasar por la recepción a ver que podiamos hacer con la cosas que se les mojaron se fueron inmediatamente y no regresaron, hasta en la noche, de echo ese fue el único día que no desayunaron aquí y los demás días siempre me decían que querían el desayuno típico y que les gustaba mucho. Lo siento por los inconvenientes pero estas cosas se podian resolver hablando conmigo aquí en el hotel y no por este medio.
