Editor’s Review of Cristal Azul

If you're looking for a unique experience in Costa Rica, consider Cristal Azul, located on a hillside that overlooks 60 miles of gorgeous coastline. The remote resort only has four "cabinas" (villas), but that's why it's so charming. One cabina has three queen beds, perfect for a large family. Another unit has one double bed and a bunk bed, and another unit accommodates one queen and one double bed. Wi-Fi is available (on most days), but none of the units have TV's, so you'll be forced to unplug and enjoy your surroundings! Note: Rooms include open-air showers, but do not have bathtubs. Amenities include complimentary beach towels and a limited number of boogie boards, coolers, chairs and umbrellas to use.

An outdoor swimming pool
... more surrounded by lush gardens and a bar and dining area adds to the appeal. You'll also find a pool table, hammocks and board games to borrow. An onsite restaurant offers delicious dinners with fresh ingredients, including fish, chicken, pork, beef, rice, beans and salad. Kid-friendly fare includes pasta, pizza, hamburgers, fish sticks, popcorn shrimp and homemade French fries. Breakfast is also served; order the French toast! Oh, and did we mention there's homemade ice cream?

Nearby, you'll find plenty of things to do, from zip-lining to visiting a butterfly farm.
