2/10 Poor

If you are expecting to stay at a nice property this is not the place for you. Your room will be covered in bugs, as it is not sealed off from the outdoors. The bed is 25 years old and extremely uncomfortable. The blanket had obviously not been washed as it smelled terrible and was covered in stains. The room smells like a sewer. You are also sharing a porch with another room, unbeknownst to us at booking. The rest of the place is pretty nice, so as long as you don't plan on sleeping in your room at night it isn't a bad place to stay. We booked for 4 nights and left after the first night as the room is a terrible experience.

8/10 Very good

Our privita cabin did not have AC. Therefore it was very hot in the room at the time we went to bed. Hopefully, it got a little cooler later in the middle of the night.

The treehouse was a great and very unique experience! The hotel is located right on the beach, has great food, excellent service, and is in secluded yet convenient location.

Banana Azul was an excellent property with a great location. The staff and amenities were wonderful and the beach area superb. The room we had was very nice but be sure to check on the location for a specific room as they can be very close to the road and noise. Loved the place and look forward to going back!

10/10 Exceptional

As I'll say about our entire trip, the drive from San Jose was long and arduous. The final 1/4 mile road to the resort was unpaved and bumpy. But reaching the resort itself was paradise. Breakfast was free and dinner was excellent. Literally steps away from crashing waves of the Caribbean Sea. Wonderful staff. Playa Negra - black sand beach. Unlike Jaco which is black rocks and mud, this was black SAND. Worth the visit, despite the travel.
