I love the service, the breakfast, the rooms, and the pools. The hotel is perfect for a relaxing vacations. It would be nice to have lunch buffet included too.

GHL Relax Hotel Costa Azul- Gigantic Room with Fantastic Amenities! I truly enjoyed my experience at GHL Costa Azul and it was an amazing value! Although the hotel is older, they have worked to maintain the rooms and the property. The customer service was terrific, and the restaurant provided a wonderful buffet breakfast with something for everyone’s taste! The pool and the beach were lovely. They have a small store on site to purchase snacks, drinks, sunscreen etc. It is a convenient place to stay if you have a very early flight because it is very close to the airport; and in case you’re wondering, the air traffic did NOT present a noise problem. Just a bit of advice; the property is not identifiable from the road and you may want to have a detailed map and the name of the nearby gas station, if you’re arriving by taxi. Good experience overall.

Enjoying my dinner after a long trip i was approached by 2 policemen in the hotel who informed me that the hotel did not appreciate my presence as they marked me as a suspicuous person and i would needed to pack my bags and leave, after they did a thorough search through my luggage. They mentioned that i would need to sort it out with Otbitz in order to reimburse my payment. Later that same evening i had a good friend who speaks better Spanish call the hotel to find out what happened but nobody could come up with an answer, the only thing they said was please send an email. Ridiculous and disrespectful Disfrutando de mi cena después de un largo viaje, dos policías se acercaron al hotel y me informaron que el hotel no apreciaba mi presencia ya que me marcaron como una persona sospechosa y que necesitaría hacer las maletas y salir, después de que hicieron una búsqueda completa a través de mi equipaje. Mencionaron que tendría que solucionarlo con Otbitz para reembolsar mi pago. Más tarde esa misma noche tuve un buen amigo que habla mejor español. Llama al hotel para averiguar qué pasó pero nadie pudo encontrar una respuesta, lo único que dijeron fue que por favor enviaran un correo electrónico. Ridículo e irrespetuoso

Swimming pools are great, the beach is beautiful. Food was really good and staff service very warm. How ever the cleanness of the restaurant during the brakefast wasn't good and either the room, the toilet bowl was yellow from the back. The drawers of the closet were broken. But the room as it self is very confortable. So they need more mantenance an cleaning enforcement.
