... n helped us with our bags When we got inside, it was cleaner than we thought and the room isn't too bad. Very basic but tidy. Oh, and a m*********** above the shower.. the main road was also nearby and it is so loud! Nothing but the soothing sounds of trucks, cars, horns and dogs to help us get to sleep after a gruelling run of flights! Tomorrow we are off to Mira Flores, it's meant to be pretty good so looking forward to it! Time to enjoy our ...

... ago. It was a telling insight into terrorism and the fight against it within Peru.




Following the museum Marco took us to a local seafood restaurant where we had our first taste of Cerviche. The travel doctor in Brisbane told us to look out for this dish and avoid it where possible. As Marco had gone out of his way to show us we figured one dish would be OK. Cerviche is a traditional dish of ...

... start as we’re exiting Peru and flying to Ecuador. Peru has been an amazing place, from Lake Titicaca to Cusco, and the Inca Trail and Macchu Picchu – but it’s also been quite expensive, as it’s much more geared up for tourism compared to Western Brazil and Bolivia. And Lima has been the most disappointing place visited so far. We’re not too sad to move on – ahead of us we’ve got the Ecuadorian Amazon and the Galapagos ...

... Cindy and Kevin from Rochester, NY. For a few days we will be following the same itinerary. How cool is that?

Off we go in a van for a ride of about 1.5 hours. It is a beautiful ride to the Sacred Valley. We make a small side trip, stopping in the town Chinchero. Here the view is fantastic and we have a chance to visit a place where they dye, spin and weave different items they sell. We sit and are offered cocoa (pronounced ca-co-a) ...

... that night, but we were there overnight so after work, Ray and I looked up a handful of suitable looking nightclubs and bars and found a very kind taxi driver who knew exactly where to take us. She even waited outside before we paid to see if wanted to stay there or not. We ended up in a funny bar called Sagitario, which I’ve since learned is really the only place worth going on a Wednesday night. It was packed and the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Costa Azul Motel/Hotel San Felipe

    Beach only steps away

    from

    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.

    from

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

    Eww a nail in my margarita!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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?

    from

    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.

    CLosest Hotel To Partying

    from

    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

    from

    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.
