    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.

    Party hotel

    from

    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!!!!!!!!

    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.

    Into The Wild

    ... We were gutted, we had a guide waiting for us in Malondando. If the flight was cancelled, we wouldn't have enough time to rebook it. Thankfully after an hour or so of waiting and desperately trying to decipher the Spanish announcements, the board changed, "boarding". We all flooded back aboard and were on our way. We landed in a tiny little airport where our guide was still waiting. Phew! He took us by mini van to the office (shack) where they went over ...

    ... many people I still knew in the school, and it was so great to see everyone. After things settled, we decided to get food. We tried one of everything, including anticucho (cows heart), and we had the best tres leches I have ever had made by Gina Mayta. It felt amazing to be back at the school and immersed back in the culture. The next day our faithful tour guide Tammy 1 (because I am Tammy 2 here in Peru) took us to Mira Flores where we did ...

    ... it is that the sun has abandoned me and unlike the song from Annie, I know that the sun will not indeed come out tomorrow. Or the next day. On the rare day that the sun manages to break through (a grand total of three times in the five weeks I have been here), I literally throw on some clothes and RUN outside. I am not exaggerating. Lima is cool (literally and figuratively), but I cannot handle this ...

    ... washing machine. Our laundry room currently looks like a dry cleaning station. We went to a locally recommended diner for dinner and we noticed that the Peruvian food is much much better than the Brazilian food. Then we walked to the Marriott hotel, pretending like we could afford it. Then went to the shops which oddly enough have a night club in them. We hung around for a bit then headed home. A long day of travel has started to wear on us a bit. Buenos nachoes amigos!!! ...

    Lima

    A travel blog entry by rohanfariss on May 03, 2014

    ... and well looked after part of Lima. Apparently there is not much else to see in Lima apart from Miraflores. I doubt this is true but it is certainly a highlight of the area. Tall apartment building line the coast, there is a park with an abundance of flower gardens and sculptors that stretchers well over a kilometer. It is an ideal people watching place. Lots of couples stroll the paths along with children riding scooters and skateboards, people running and walking dogs. ...
