Nice bungalow, great gardens, lovely staff (although one of the guys , probably very new, was not very competent) - food could have been better, not much choice for vegetarians; internet was sketchy ; but all in all we loved our stay

Superb location, superb setting
Beautiful bungalows. Food staff and front desk staff were both very attentive and kind!
Nice pool. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are somewhat dark.
This was more than we were expecting and everything was amazing! The location was perfect and the town was great! The bungalows provided the perfect beach getaway!
Is there an 11 for this rating?? I had a fabulous time at Azania!! The bungalow was stunning. Comfortable and well maintained but rustic and close to nature. The staff were very freindly and helpful. Even though I was travelling by myself I never felt lonely as they were so attentive. The food was delicious and I the value for money was beyond my expectations. I will definitely be back!
Very clean and Comfortable. Nice walk into town along the beach . Great surf beach across the road. Lovely pool. Great breakfast . Tasty meal in the restaurant. Sloth in the garden a real highlight .
We loved Azania Bungalows; The staff was very good. I was chocked to have a frog on my showergel. But afterall we could laugh with it. The only thing is that Azania is a bit far from downtown. In the night it was a long distance to walk or bike to Porto Viejo.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
The staff lack hospitality.
Perfect ! Hope to go back and stay here again
