    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.

    ... We bought 2L of Pisco and some flavor powders so we can try our hand at making Pisco Sours at home. We are told that the Pisco in the US isn't as good. I also bought some bitters, corn snacks and chicha morada candies (purple sweet corn). They are like Jolly Ranchers, but purple. I should have looked for more pink salt, but forgot. I also considered bringing back some quinoa, but decided against it because of the weight.

    We hopped across the street ...

    ... was very strange in its messaging. The final part of the monastery tour was a macabre trip through the catacombs next where rich people had paid large sums to be laid to rest under the church and monastery complex. Those who paid enough had their own individual tomb, with those paying less being simply grouped together in large holes. The catacomb was low and damp, in a complex of tunnels and rooms. Each room contained multiple bone collections and was ...

    After about an hour in the lounge, I boarded TACA Flight 417 through Gate 13, an Airbus 320 from SAL to LIM. I had Business Class Seat 3D, but found a young man sitting there. The young woman sitting next to him in 3K started talking to me in Spanish. I replied, "No habla espanol." She then pointed to a ring on her finger and then pointed to the guy. Ah okay, they are ...

    I arrived at 00:10 on Thursday night the 31st. The deal was that Doug would only sat at arrivals till 1 hr after my projected arrival of 12:05. I looked at my watch when I got thru customs and immigration at 1:00 am. Dangerously close to the appointed time. I cruised the lineup of waiting persons outside ...

    ... guitar as there had to be a music zone of stalls somewhere. So after asking around and passing the ************e we located it. We tried some upmarket stalls selling guitars too expensive for us before finding a man who Bet haggled with to finally acquire a guitar. He then realised this was the first guitar that was truly his. Not a hand me down or a gift. This was a pretty cool way to get your first guitar in the busting city of Lima so he was pretty chuffed ...
