We stayed here for 3 nights and were very pleased. We had our own separate bungalow with a hammock on the back patio. The room was spacious, as was the bathroom. The A/C worked really well and the breakfast was yummy. They also have a laundry service, which came in handy, because none of our wet clothing was drying on... More

Everything about our stay was perfect. The family who runs the hotel and their staff are extremely nice and helpful. Our room was gorgeous and very private. We loved having a view of the rainforest and our own private porch. This is a great hideout for couples but certainly spacious enough for families.

Our family of five spent 3 nights in cabins 4 and 7. Overall, the property is spotless and well maintained. There are thoughtful touches such as chairs on both front and back porches, nice coffee pots, good-quality coffee, refrigerators, and ample hit water. Unlike another reviewer, I did not see signs asking us to dispose of toilet paper in the... More

This was an amazing place to stay while in La Fortuna. Family run, this place was super affordable for an individual bungalow, with a huge bathroom, back porch, AC, mini fridge and a shared breakfast prepared by the family. Located walking distance from both town, the waterfall steps and Cerro Chato, this was a super convenient place to stay. Clean,... More

We stayed there 3 nights in August 2015 and it was a perfect value hotel. You cant beat the price, the breakfasts were a highlight of our trip and it was only a $3 US taxi ride into town which you could easily walk if you didn't mind getting rained on. This family run gem was everything we wanted to... More

We had a wonderful stay at Cerro Azul and will recommend to friends and family. Friendly staff, wonderful breakfast, clean rooms in a quiet area only minutes away from downtown La Fortuna, all for a very fair price...we couldn't have asked for more!

We went a few weeks ago and heard great reviews about the bungalows so we decided to try them out. We reserved bungalow #5 which is definitely the best room there and we're please that the AC was working amazingly and the views from the patio were to die for. Alvaro and his staff made us feel at home and... More

Agree with others that these are great individual bungalows. A quiet retreat in La Fortuna - just a few minutes drive from town and the La Fortuna waterfalls. Stayed there based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Beautiful gardens around the bungalows. Quiet (except for the howler monkeys who got there first). Friendly owner lives across the street and... More

My wife and I spent three fantastic nights at Rancho Cerro Azul, and we couldn't have been happier. The rooms are comfortable and tidy, with strong A/C if you prefer that to the cool breeze and the sound of the river behind the property. The hotel and grounds are beautiful, and we enjoyed many hours of simply sitting on our... More

Cerro Azul is a perfect getaway in the vicinity of the town La Fortuna. The bungalows are very spacious and clean and the staff really made us feel welcome from the first moments we arrived. We really liked the hammock on the veranda, looking at the lush tropical garden. It was really nice to relax there after a hard day... More
