    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.

    ... quite a smell from the house every time the door opened. It was raining and you could see the roof was in poor shape. I'm sure everything must get wet when it rains. This family has 5 children and they are younger (the youngest is 5 months) and mom stays home with them.

    After the 2 visits, I left the home visit group to go to the community centre for Youth in Action. It was great - younger children doing crafty things. Really wish I had ...

    ... minds was dinner. We took a taxi to a nearby bohemian neighborhood, Barranco, and ate big veggie burgers at a funky restaurant called Twist.

    Saturday, after breakfast at the hostel, we joined a free walking tour of Miraflores, which, in addition to stops at the most interesting food and craft markets, included a stop at a chocolate museum where we learned more (than we had already in Mindo, Ecuador) about chocolate, its origins and history, and were offered lots ...

    On the way back from the Condor viewing platforms we stopped in at this little town where Rach found God and I found this cool eagle.

    What laid ahead of us the next day was a 12hr bus ride from Arequipa through to Cusco. We stacked up on snacks and enjoyed the ride, as best we could. Rach and I definitely crushed a lot of candy that ...

    ... enough it’s our turn and we head through with three other people – and that’s a plane full it seems – the plane is utterly tiny, with just enough room for the two pilots and five punters! Linda looks sick, particularly as we line up for take-off, then head up into the sky! Obviously such a tiny little plane exacerbates all movements and we appear to lurch around a fair bit – indeed, the woman behind me is quite sick! Then we head out ...

    ... museums surrounding the Plaza. We stumble across some inviting restaurants and bars that look as though they haven't changed since the 1930s. Unfortunately we had eaten previously at a not very good place close to the plaza. Maybe when we return at the end of this trip?

    As I said previously, we were not fans of Lima before. Now we very definitely are and are already looking forward to exploring further when we return before we fly back to London, later in ...
