We come from a foodie town, so its become harder to find restaurants when traveling that live up to our hometown food. Azul is one of those restaurants! First and foremost, the setting is stunning - I would venture to say one of the best vistas in the Americas. Then come the people. Scott the manager is actively engaging with... More

Wow. Azul at El Castillo is a tremendous asset to the Ojochal region. El Castillo is a chic boutique hotel on a hillside opening to the Pacific. They have a gorgeous infinity pool/patio/ bar area to order fresh made cocktails, like a blended mango margarita (essentially a mango blended with tequila & ice;perfection), and enjoy truly stunning sunsets. We've been... More

We held our wedding reception here. Scott and his staff were very attentive to every detail. The view is beautiful, and the food is excellant. Our family and friends enjoyed the evening immensely.

The sunset view from this sophisticated boutique hotel is amazing. The bartender is the best and the specialty drinks are unbelievable. When the sun goes down, and your second Mojito has somehow gone, move on over to you dinner table and enjoy a very fine meal. Excellent service with a passion. We went twice it was that good.
