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.
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.

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.

... houses so we usually opted not to. But did take lots of the area. We were super dusty (all dirt/gravel roads) so after the tour, we went back to the hostel and showered and headed back to downtown Miraflores for the day. We found this sandwich shop that was fantastic. They also made fresh squeezed juices. We each got a sandwich and I got water and mike a juice. For a whopping $15! Mike got a typical sandwich in Lima which is a pork sandwich. It's slicked pork, with the skin ...

... for me outside, and somehow sent someone in to get me. I'm not sure how they recognized me, but they did.
We took off to the hotel in the center of the old town - beautiful! He started telling me about some of the things we were seeing, and that today we would take it easy and just walk around town. He knows I want to take pictures, and suggested some streets, the market, and some churches. Sounds perfect!

... TV room without any covers, although on the way she had been offered a bed by a guy who was drinking on the roof. Originally she'd thought how nice but when it turned out he was planning on sleeping in the bed still too she decided not to take him up on his kind offer. Catriona was talking to a Finnish girl over breakfast and then an English guy came and sat with us, was chatting and asked me if I went to Edinburgh uni turns out it was a guy called Pete who I had ...
