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

We stayed three nights at Cerro Azul, and our friends had the cabin next to us. The family that runs the place is super friendly. The cabins were very nicely done - all wood interiors with large bathrooms. You could sit on the back porch and see tons of birds. We even had a lizard in the roof of the... More

My fiancé and I visited Cerro Azul as the first part of our Costa Rica adventure. It was amazing!! Tatiana and her family went above and beyond to help us achieve all of our travel goals during our stay in Arenal. We were in cabin 3 and the wifi worked very well in our cabin because we were very close... More

I am writing this review late as we visited back in February 2013 but I've been meaning to write a review about my stay at Hotel Cerro Azul Arenal. This was by far my favorite place we stayed at in Costa Rica (and we stayed in a luxurious resort in Tamarindo while there). The family that owns the hotel were... More

I contacted Cerro Azul while I was staying at another, less expensive place in Fortuna that was right on the main road. It was too noisy and I needed to find another place to stay. They got back to me immediately and arranged for a cab to pick me up the next day. I knew it would be a bit... More

I found Cerro Azul on tripadvisor and booked two nights with them and two nights at Arenal Kokoro hotel. I wanted hot springs (at Kokoro) and the location of Cerro Azul (stream right out back, down the road from cerro chato, and closer to downtown). I wish I would have stayed here all four nights. The grounds are immaculate. The... More

We were two couples who stayed here at the beginning of May 2014, and we LOVED the hotel! The rooms are actually small cabins spaced out from each other, and there are only 5 cabins on the property. They were very spacious rooms, with a back porch over looking a beautiful field, where we hung out during the evenings (and... More

I had high expectations based on the great reviews, and was not disappointed. The owner greeted us and offered lots of recommendations for things to do in the area. Our cabin was cozy and clean, set in a really gorgeous landscape. It was very relaxing to sit in the hammock on the back porch. We opted to have breakfast there,... More

I can't imagine anybody could complain about this place, specially if you stay in cabin #5. It's clean and new. I am one of those people who will not even sit on a bed without removing the bedspread, much less lie on it or sleep with it. This place had a nice quilted cover and I did not find the... More

After being stuck on traffic in San Jose, we arrived to the hotel exhausted. The owner served us cold natural juice without asking us, took our luggage to the room and asked us about our activities. He was able to book us a tour for the afternoon, for Cerro Chato and water rafting. The tour agencies he recommended where 5... More
