We had a wonderful stay at the Cerro Azul Arenal. The owner's daughter Tatitanna checked us in and made us feel right at home. The cabin was lovely and we loved the hammock on the back porch! Lying in bed at night you could here the river flowing nearby. A delicious breakfast was served on the owner's porch. The location... More

Delightful family who made us very welcome, helped organise trips, taxis etc. Lovely fresh breakfast every day and nice quiet location 20 minute walk out of town on the road to the waterfall. We did end up getting taxis a few times as the walk back from town wasn't great in the dark and wet.

I stayed two nights here and this was the nicest place I stayed during my "sampling" trip of several central Costa Rica locations. I wanted a view of Arenal volcano, and I was most interested in seeing the incredible La Fortuna waterfall, so this seemed like a good spot. I was surprised at how good the cabin was. I felt...

We stayed here for two nights during our visit to Arenal. The cabins are cozy, clean and comfortable. The back porch looks out to beautiful gardens and you are awakened by the sounds of birds chirping and a river flowing. We had breakfast at the owner's house and it was delicious. The owner staff are incredibly friendly and helpful with... More

This family run bed and breakfast is everything you could ask for during a stay in La Fortuna. It is centrally located yet far from the business of the city center. These cabins are a short walk away from the waterfall, and the patio is equipped with a hammock to fully enjoy the lush surroundings. The best part of this... More

I highly recommend the Hotel Cerro Azul. The cabins are adorable, private and spotless and the gardens are lovely. Tatiana and her family went above and beyond to make us comfortable and to help us get the most out of our Arenal area experience by scheduling tours and recommending restaurants. The breakfast was great - and so convenient. You can't... More

My husband and i came on our honeymoon and left 2 days after getting married. Tatiana and her family are extremely helpful and made for a stress free trip. Location is perfect 3 mins from town by car and just down the road from the waterfall and cerro chato. We stayed in room #5 which was fantastic, clean and spacious... More

Tatiana's family and staff who run the hotel are so nice and the cabins that they built, especially cabins 5 & 6, are so beautiful that I just stayed in my cabin most days and chilled. They went above and beyond to make sure that my stay was as best it could possibly be from helping order take out (actually... More

This small hotel is located outside of La Fortuna and offers great views of the Arenal Volcano. The rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable. The owners and family are very kind and helpful, and the grounds are very well maintained. The breakfast is at the owners' home across the street and is very delicious. Right behind the cabins, you... More

We stayed for two days and were very dissapointed, that we had to leave! Everybody was so friendly and helpful-they organised everything we asked them for perfect and were always there to answer our questions! The room itself was very clean and the balkony with garden-view was wonderful! We can also reccommend the breakfast! If we come back to la... More
