Lonely Planet review
Removed from town, this romantic hotel sits astride a blissfully tranquil black-sand beach. Jungle-chic decor (white linens, mosquito nets, bromeliads in the showers) is complemented by fine ocean vistas from upstairs terraces. Best is the Howler Suite, a corner room with multidirectional views. There's also an onsite restaurant-bar, plus bike and boogie-board rentals. No children under 16.
At the time of research, the construction of 18 new villas was underway on the property. The first villa should be complete by 2016; 17 more will follow by the end of 2017. The hotel will remain open throughout.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Banana Azul and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.
