My sister and I stayed at Mono Azul for 3 nights at the end of our 9 day tour in March 2017. The room was clean, comfortable, and quite large. We enjoyed one of the 2 pools, great food at the restaurant, delicious happy hour drinks, and the friendly hospitality and helpfulness of the staff and owner. Conveniently located on...

In a location where everything is very expensive, Blue Monkey is a nice mid-range / budget accommodation option. The staff is really nice, friendly and helpful. Nice restaurant with a very good chef. Some rooms are noisy and very hot (noisy fan that just move hot air around).

My wife and I stayed here a week. Everything is as advertised if not better than expected. The staff was very friendly and genuinely concerned with our every request. Rooms are updated and clean. Beds comfortable and showers hot. If you plan on running the AC on maximum you will need to bring an extra blanket! The restaurant and bar...

Went here after a terrible experience in another hotel, the room has lots of space and are very clean, the pool is nice and the restaurant food is very good and has variety. The staff is super friendly and helpful, they guide you on whatever you need inside and outside the hotel.

Its a cute place with friendly staff and a nice little pool to chill.(with additional one on other side of restaurant). We only needed one night as our other location was not available, between guests...so this place worked out! Plus our other family members were right across the street at Tico Tico for the month. The hotel is a good...

All of the positive things said about Mono Azul in recent reviews are spot on. I'm a single F "baby boomer" who stayed here for 3 nights and am so glad I did. The location is perfect, and there are local (modern) buses which stop just a few steps away about every 15 minutes for the 15 minute ride to...

A clean, comfortable room set in a well-groomed, garden-like environment that resembles a mini-Costa Rica rainforest, with two clean pools, macaws flying into the trees and white-faced monkeys crossing above the road on a rope -- that's Mono Azul. I was in town for scuba training and my wife for private Spanish lessons. Mono Azul was ideal for us both...

Stayed in the hotel in our way to Manuel Antonio National Park for one night. Booked it based on this hotel being number 1 in the area as per trip advisor. Far from it....... Over priced. Broken bed. Noisy fan. No hot water in the shower or sink. Worst of all, when my son tried to adjust the shower head...

Hello Irfan, I am sorry you had a bad experience here at Mono Azul. The showers in our basic rooms, like many hotels here in Costa Rica, are called Suicide showers. They have electricity to instantly heat the water. They are not meant to be touched just for safety precautions because water and electricity don't mix well. We have since...
