    Historical Traveler Reviews Costa Azul Motel/Hotel San Felipe

    Beach only steps away


    the hotel was average, beach was a couple of feet away and if you dont like the beach much you have a swimming pool there with a pool bar to drink

    Thirty Six Street.


    The place is off the hook with girls, drinks, and full of fun!!!

    Eww a nail in my margarita!


    My family and I decided to try out new hotels in San Felipe. It was a bit late to be able to book anything, and we thought ourselves luck to have gotten reservations with the costa azul. Unfortunately things did not go as well as we thought it would. When we arrived, my father and uncle went to go pay for the rooms, while the rest of us stayed outside. When they came out we all waited for the attendants to give us the keys to our rooms. After a while of waiting, one of the attendants came up to my father and told him that he had given them an illegal one hundred bill. That could not be possible, since my father had just taken money ou from the bank before we had gone on the trip. My father and uncle both went to complain to the manager, but were un able to get anywhere with it, and since there was no other place that we could stay, we gave up and stayed the first night there. When we finally got to our room, I was supremely disappointed, it was dark, and smelly. The children(my cousins) had earlier spotted the swimming pool, and we headed that way. The pool has an inside bar, and all the grown ups had a few margaritas. While I was drinking mine, I suddenly felt something cut me. I reached into my mouth, only to find that it had been a piece of someone's nail (most likely the bar tenders) that came from the margarita i had been drinking. Yuck, I felt so grows that I threw the margarita into the trash. Soon we left to go sleep, and when we awoke in the morning, we had the same experience that one of the other reviewers had, no warm water. We left a soon as we could. Don't waste your time going here, I know I never will.

    Bad Security


    Personal items stolen from hotel room. Security Guards and staff unwilling to help. They gave us a "It's your problem attitude".

    This place is terrible


    This is the worst hotel that I have stayed in. Poor reservation control, misinforming clients, profiling reservation. Lying about "We can not guarantee a specific room" when they just turn around and said to another staff memeber "that room is already reserved". They initially gave us a room in the first floor, just walking by the entrance of the floor, there was a profound smell to urine. The room looked like a cave, dark and dusty. I requested a change in room or cancellation and they finally after an hour, moved us to a room in the third floor (with view). The room smelled so bad to sewer, like if it was backing up from the drain, that I still have the smell in my nose. I made my stay shorter, lost $120.00 but I preferred to leave than staying another nigth at that place. Please beware of this hotel. Expensive, poor maintained, bad service, smelly, phone did not work, no security, etc.

    Is that coal in my Christmas stocking?


    We visited the Costa Azul in December, 2001. The prime location of this hotel attracted us; the dismal room (dank, dark, and abused) and lackluster service repelled us. After one overpriced night, we moved two blocks west to the Las Palmas, into one of their courtyard rooms, and thoroughly enjoyed our remaining time in San Felipe. The extra walk helped defray the guacamole calories.

    Party hotel


    Labor Day Weekend 2002, if your not at the culb or walking in town. Your at the swim up bar drinking having fun meeting neww friends and having fun!!!!!!!!

    Hot water


    I'm got 2 rooms for 2 days, and when my kids want to take a shower at 8.30am there is NO hot water! next days at the same time there is NO water at all... also the pool was so dirty with leaves and my room my t.v was like 71/2 feet high and I can't reach it, and there is No remote control....besides that room was okay.alicia

    CLosest Hotel To Partying


    Good hotel if you want to be close to the night life and to the beach. Plus has a pool available for those just wanting to relax with a bar near them.

    Nice Beach Hotel


    I stayed here about 6 years ago and had a great time. The room was okay with a few holes and dings, but the shower more than made up for it. There is a large sparkling pool that really hits the spot since the temperature gets so hot in the summer. You can walk right out on the beach from the pool's gate and the hub of the town is only a block away. It's the perfect spot for convenience and the prices were very reasonable.

    ... trying to get on the bus, but when their prime objective is survival at all western view of the world that everyone is the same, some of us just started the race closer to the finish line, is being constantly put to the side as if I followed my natural instincts I would probably be still standing in a que at the train station, with no cash to buy a ticket. So with these learnings in mind I am off to go fill the toilet with cups of water to ...

    It sounded like a nice introduction, so I decided to join 4 other cyclists about to set off. Our guide Pablo made sure we all got into single file and knew how to use the bicycle bells.
    He had no qualms about cycling the wrong way up streets or crossing traffic mid flow, with his ...

    That night we headed out again, we went to the city centre where we stopped to have a coffee and just watched people walk by. Later we went to the main square of Miraflores where we saw a group ...

    We slept really late today, in fact it was one of those days when the housekeeping is knocking on the door at times during the late morning until they open the door and say something and I put my head up and just say "no necesito", which is basically saying it's not necessary you clean our room. We got up late and had breakfast/lunch at mcdonalds down the road. We didn't do much, basically we went for a long ...

    ... at one point the gods could not be satiated and the city was abandoned due to a drought. The walls of the temple are all sculpted and painted, and every 100 years they were rebuilt on top of the old structure, resulting in five thick layers of brick concealing wonderful old walls, each layer with slightly different patterns. From the outside of the temple you can see each layer very clearly, one on top of the other, with the paint quite well preserved. The ...
