My husband and I recently visited Arenal for the first time this summer and decided to stay at the Hotel Cerro Azul due to all of the high reviews on TripAdvisor - we were so glad that we booked our stay here! Hotel Cerro Azul has a great location - very close to town (within walking distance) but enough removed... More

My wife and I stayed at Rancho Cerro Azul in August 2014 and were extremely satisfied. It is located on a beautiful property and really does have a ranch-type feel. Alverro and the rest of the staff are very hospitable and friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were all clean. There is an optional breakfast (American or typical Costa Rican style),... More

We stayed there two nights. It was close to town with a great view of Arenal. My kids liked swimming in the river behind the cabins. The breakfast was very good although not cheap. I especially liked sitting in the hammock reading a book and watch the hummingbirds come and go from the gardens out back.

WOW. We were SOOOOOooooo relieved to arrive at our cabin here after two days of crazy travel . Our "mini house" was pristinely clean, the owners were incredibly nice, and breakfast was superb. So peaceful. We were secretly happy that it rained all afternoon so we could relax in bed and in our hammock listening to the raindrops.

Our family spent two nights at the Hotel Cerro Azul and enjoyed our stay overall. The staff were very friendly and the cabanas were nicely maintained and comfortable (if not huge). The back porches were especially nice for relaxing with a drink and a book. As it was very humid, we were glad to have air conditioning. The breakfast was... More

This place is remarkable. An oasis in its own right. We spent three weeks in Costa Rica and this was the best place we stayed. We walked to and from town every day, sometimes twice. The staff is small, professional, and very helpful in suggesting activities for anyone who wants an honest, local opinion. We stayed 13 out of our... More

What a great find that if not for Trip Adviser would not have found! We stayed 3 nights and the place was perfect for exploring La Fortuna. It is a bit out of town, but if I had to guess maybe only a 20 minute easy walk or so to the main downtown area and maybe 15 minutes to the... More

This place was perfect for us. We visited Arenal with our three small children, and the separate cabins were perfect. Management was always very helpful: getting us taxis into town, recommending age appropriate activities in the area, and taking care of anything that arose. The location was great, being a 3 dollar taxi ride away from La Fortuna. The waterfall... More

We just had one night in La Fortuna and this place was perfect. The rooms are very basic but comfortable and clean. The porches are the place to be with a lovely hammock on the back porch to listen to and watch the wildlife. The front porches have nice views of the volcano. We didn't have the breakfast as we...
