I had high expectations, and the property and staff blew those expectations away. From arrival to departure, the staff made sure that we were taken care of in every way. The property views (pool, sunset, yoga deck) were incredible. The food was exceptional. I could not have asked for a better experience.

The most beautiful hotel we stayed in Costa Rica. Perfect cleanliness, delicious food. The view from the hotel pool is amazing. Service at the highest level. With the greatest pleasure we will return there again in September. We also recommend this hotel for families with children. We came with a 2-year-old daughter who was very pleased and happy in this place. We would like to thank the whole Lapazul Hotel team for a great time!!!!

My wife and I drove in late one night while raining with no reservation. Esteban and Jorge immediately took care of us, checked in the rooms, and got us settled in within minutes! This kind of service doesn’t exist. Picture don’t do this place justice. The food and drinks were top notch. Can’t say enough but will be back soon. Thanks

Magnifique petit hôtel avec somptueuse vue sur l’océan et la végétation.

Tout était parfait (accueil, propreté, équipements, repas, piscine…)

Un des plus beaux hôtels de notre voyage !

~ Charlotte Decormis

Lapazul is truly a special place. You are hugged by lush surroundings, tranquil nature-sounds, and the skyline ocean view – which makes for spectacular sunsets. It is a close drive to beautiful beaches, trails, waterfalls, and the towns of Dominical & Quepos. The accommodations and property itself were pristine. You can tell that the owners & staff put a lot of care and thoughtfulness into every aspect of their guests’ experience. Everyone we encountered was sweet, approachable, and helpful when we had requests. Lapazul is not just a place to stay – it is a unique and irreplaceable experience.

~ Cher Godoy

Haven of peace ideally located between Quepos and Uvita. The hotel is definitely worth a visit!! The most beautiful hotel we have been to! Superb view, the decoration is magnificent and all in a setting that is hardly more serene and calm. Not to mention the very nice and friendly staff. Thank you again for your special attentions for our honeymoon. We were touched a lot.

If you are reading this, look no further. I cannot say enough good things about me and my partner’s stay at Lapazul, a recently opened boutique hotel.

The property itself is gorgeous and everything from the rooms, to the restaurant, to the pool and grounds are well maintained and very clean. Navigating to the property was somewhat challenging; however, halfway through our stay, signs on the main road and side streets were installed to make for much easier navigation. I would recommend a 4×4 as there is a steep 10 minute drive from the main highway to the property.

The opulent, but welcoming gate and palm tree lined driveway set the tone for our stay. We were welcomed with a Costa Rican tropical drink by our server, Ronny, who quickly became our friend. Upon first arrival, we were stunned with how the infinity pool seamlessly transitions into the Pacific Ocean.

The rooms are spacious and almost every piece of furniture is custom made. The beds are comfortable and linens are very high quality. The food at the restaurant was very good; however, we did suggest to management a more diverse menu, such as including a special of the day.

Walking paths (for intermediate to advanced hikers) line the property and you may get a chance to see Lola the sloth feeding or sleeping in the trees. Expect to see bugs and frogs on the property, especially at night. However, we did not have any issues with bugs in our room as the property is kept clean and the AC rooms are not open to the outside. The large sliding glass doors do open to the balcony if you prefer an open feeling.

Lapazul is close to the village of Hatillo, 10 minutes from the surf town Dominical and is conveniently located from other towns and activities. There are also a number of beaches close by, each with different atmospheres. The staff has plenty of recommendations for sites and activities in the area. They were also able to accommodate a currency exchange.

Bottom line is the welcoming, attentive staff on a beautiful, well maintained and conveniently located property made for a very positive and memorable experience. You can expect plenty of Costa Rican sun, good energy and a place to fully embrace the Pura Vida lifestyle.

~ Bert Dickinson

Beautiful, breathtaking views. Can see even the Manuel Antonio National Park from here. Hotel is so nice and staff is great too. Saw parrots in the wild and a sloth in a tree next to the pool. 100 % recommended.

~ Michael Bianchini
What an amazing place!

The mountain road to get up to the resort is quite a journey and then this incredible reveal takes place at the top when you see for the first time Lapazul.

Surrounded by beautiful nature both in a visual and audible way, this escape has views that are unbeatable.

The finishes are all high end in the rooms and make for a very comfortable stay.

So satisfied that we found this hidden gem!

~ Patrick Wallain

I love Lapazul! Amazing sunsets, beautiful ocean views, wonderful infinity pool and a variety of birds to keep you entertained. The food is outstanding and the staff are very professional friendly and accomodating. I highly recommend Lapazul for its simple elegance, serenity and good vibes. I wanted to stay there forever!

~ Kym - Helena De Boer

What a paradise!! The hotel is even better than in the picture, the view is stunning, and service and restaurant were spot on. The cherry on the cake for us was that numerous birds like toucans live in the area so we could actually see them from the hotel.

~ Dario Dotti

Truly Magical Place! Such a wonderful week at this elegant and amazing boutique. The views are spectacular, the energy of jungle and nature is so high, and everything about our trip was delightful. An on-site gourmet chef prepared delicious meals of both local and international inspiration. My fav was the traditional Costa Rican breakfast. Yum. The pool and surrounding areas to rest and repose provide a quiet and serene environment. I felt so recharged and rejuvenated. The staff is amazing and thought of everything to make our stay complete. They coordinated a whale watching tour (just an unbelievable experience!), a trip to experience ancient spheres, an adventure in Manuel Antonio park, massages, and more. The rooms are large, sophisticated and all have an ocean view. Highly recommend Lapazul, and I am already dreaming of my next trip there.

~ Jean Schoenecker

Wow, what can I say? Lapazul and Marek did indeed present a fishing retreat of a lifetime! Three days of tremendous fishing action. First day inshore, catching crevalle jack and red snapper near Quepos. Second day 55 plus miles offshore catching tuna in a sea swarming with thousands of dolphins. One day off to recuperate from all the prior days’ action where we visited breathtaking waterfalls. On the third day, we were treated to a day of non-stop action near Dominical using the Panga boat, the favourite of the Tico locals.

Lapazul has hand picked the best boats and guides and it felt like we had been fishing with them for ever. Every boat captain was skilled in their craft and found us the fish to keep us hopping. Although partial to the fishing off Dominical where we were able to experience old style vs new, I will remember the entire trip for the remainder of my life.

Top this off with the unbelievable accommodations at the Lapazul resort where the food and stay were first class. Patricia and Marek hit it out of the park. Esteban was great in helping us out with the language and sites, Deiby’s chef skills were amazing, and all the staff treated us like family.

Cannot wait to go back!

~ Ed Painter

This was the best vacation I’ve had in decades. Lapazul is located within easy distance of lots of things to see and do – Manuel Antonio National Park, horseback riding, ziplining, beaches, waterfalls and more. But when we were at the hotel, it felt like the rest of the world had disappeared. The surroundings – forest, grounds, pool, wildlife – are so beautiful and relaxing. Our room was great, and we met interesting guests from around the world. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful; they all felt more like friends by the end of our stay. Patricia and Marek have created a wonderful oasis at Lapazul.
