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.
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.

... islands, a group of islands known as 'the poor man's Galapagos' as it is full of wildlife, albeit not as exciting or impressive as the Galapagos. We meandered in and out of the group of islands looking at birds (penguins, pelicans, seagulls, cormorants, Incan turns etc.) and sea lions. We were even treated to a seal having breakfast - it had caught an octopus and, after having dropped it initially, managed to recover it from then sea and drag it back onto the rocks. The ...

We had a great time and the weather was not to bad early in the morning and nearing sunset. The last night in town we went to the beach and propped up our lawn chairs and the air was perfect with the ocean breeze cooling the air down to a perfect temperature to enjoy a cerveza and some vino.
... the country is diverse, from coastal heat to jungle to altitude. We found that Peru has generally friendly people, who are louder than in other South American countries we have visited. The hostels were generally nice and fairly well priced (this was a significant bonus over Bolivia!). It was easy for us to find vegetarian food in all of the places we went. All that, plus the country isn't particularly expensive. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay.
... and visiting the magic water circuit fountains I spent a lot of my time catching up on sleep etc. I decided to check into a modern hotel as I was getting a bit bored of brown bathrooms, brown linen, brown curtains, but unfortunately the modern hotel had internet issues, so I couldn't have it all. The Magic Water Fountains was certainly interesting, kind of impressive, but ...
