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...

I stayed here with my young daughter for several days. We had not planned on traveling to this area and were both feeling tired on a mid-trip lull, yet the family members who run Cerro Azul were extremely patient and helpful. Tatiana made numerous calls to check on transportation options and activities and everyone made helpful suggestions on the best... More

I stayed at Hotel Rancho Cerro Azul for three nights in June 2014 as part of a larger trip to Costa Rica. The very high TripAdvisor ranking of the hotel among hotels in the La Fortuna area and the large quantity of very positive reviews from former guests were the deciding factors in me choosing this hotel for my brief...

We had the perfect stay at Hotel Cerro Azul! We loved our cabin in the jungle, it was secluded, quiet, quaint, and romantic! Also, the family was so kind and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and the perfect size. We loved watching all the animals on the porch, we saw hummingbirds, butterflies, horses, and beautiful birds! We could've stayed... More

We really liked this hotel. Very well maintained. It is family run and we were very well taken care of. The owner and his daughter helped us out when our daughter was stung by an ant. It was nice to have plenty of storage and shelving in the room, a refrigerator and air conditioning. I loved sitting on the back... More

Hotel / Rancho Cerro Azul was just right for our family of 4. Beautiful cabins. Picturesque landscaping. Nice bathroom. Has air conditioning. Clean room. Everything well maintained and in good condition. This is a family owned and operated hotel. The family is friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Breakfast is available for $7 and was just average. Guests have their own cabin... More
