    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.

    Lots of love for Lima

    ... a boiled egg and an olive... It was a pretty tasty dish considering, but was certainly helped down by the potent pisco sours we made! We were lucky to be cooking with some hilarious Australians who were living in Lima and had a lot of fun discussing the many weird people we've met along the way! Two more pisco sours in a local bar resulted in sickness and a headache the next day...but it was fun anyway. One of the best things we did was a bike tour of Barranco and Chorillos with ...

    ... fetishes. Starting the tour Half of us are Australian! From Sydney, the rest are English, Canadian and US. Happy bunch. Local bus to Franciscan monastery was very squeezy! The monastery - finally I'm witnessing real history, really old stuff, takes my breath away. A Harry Potter style library, an ossuary in the catacombs, a mass happens as we are there and the singing is so beautiful, resonating through the rooms. Next, Puno - up into the ...

    ... load of typical tourist shops. There was about 50 all filled with everything iconic to Peru. Llama toys, ponchos and big fluffy hats everywhere. We went around all these playing and trying on all the stuff before Larry found something he had to buy. It was a t-shirt which had the typical "Puma" logo, you know the one with Puma written on it and the picture of the puma jumping over, apart from instead it said "Llama" and had a picture of a llama jumping over. After ...

    ... over and offered to teach us to dance, which might've worked had we been a bit more sober. After a while it was apparent that whatever rhythm Ben and I might have had had gone with the last beer we'd just downed. We struggled back to our hostel at 2 a.m., absolutely shattered. The next day, as you might imagine, was a bit of a write-off! After breakfast we walked very slowly to the seafront, and down to a small ...

    At 7am we got a taxi to the airport. We then went to check in our bags and the problems started. I was told i had to have printed proof of my ESTA visa for USA. Something i was aware i would not need. Carrie had printed hers off so she was able to check in. We then had to rush upstairs to use the internet in Starbucks where i bought another ESTA online. However, the confirmation email did not come through before checkout closed at ...
