We stayed at Cerro Azul in August 2013 and it was wonderful! The owners and staff were so nice and helpful. The location was a great walking distance from town, or just to stroll down the road to the volcanoes and falls. The breakfast was delicious, freshly prepared and super flavorful. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Cabins were simple, comfortable and very clean. Tatiana is a gem and we appreciated her help throughout our stay. Breakfast was delicious and watching the birds every morning was a treat. A little hard to find-most signs aren't the norm anywhere in CR. Cabins are in a great location, just a 5 minute drive into town. Easy to get to... More

This family run set of cabins is a great value. The cabins are clean and had a lovely back patio to watch the birds and horses. The bathroom was roomy, thought the overall cabin was about the size of a hotel room. The family who runs it are great! Recommended for families and travelers who are looking for an alternative...

I stayed at Rancho Cerro Azul in August, 2013 with my family -- two adults and one teenaged girl. It was perfect for us -- tranquil, green and beautiful. The flowers surrounding the cabins are lovely. The hosts could not have been more accommodating. When we arrived, two of us were getting over a stomach bug that we'd picked up... More

Our host in his family made us most welcome. They provided us with recommendations for where to eat, and what they recommended was very good! The cabins are just lovely and clean and the grounds are beautifully kept. The place is quiet but close by car to all amenities The owners daughter even took us for a little walk down... More

on a budget? i probably recommend staying in town itself, since most of the time you'll be out of the hotel doing stuff in the area. but if you want a quiet place not too far away this is a great option: perfect service, great price, and the river a short 100 meters away. take the walk!

Very helpful & friendly owner & family. Economical for 4 in room. Room very dark. Single bulb illuminated whole room. Bathroom dark. TV did not work. No hot water to basin, but fair in shower. Had to use headlight to look in my suitcase, shave or for ladies to apply make up. Good AC. Nice porch. Pump soap, no shampoo... More

Good location down road from waterfall. Very nice cabins made from dark wood (somewhat dark inside). Secluded back terrace with chairs and hammock. No screens on windows so we kept them shut at night and used AC. We would have preferred to keep them open. Breakfast was across the road at the owner's house. The owner and remaining staff (family?)... More

These five cabins are sited facing the waterfall road just outside of town, and all have decks in back with hammocks, looking out to the Rio Fortuna and the jungle beyond. The contrast of the clean, private and comfortable cabins--all with double beds, great bathrooms and verandas--and the lawn and jungle just in back (where we saw many varieties of... More

My boyfriend and I got in late to La Fortuna and just stayed at a hotel in the center of town for the night. We woke up wanting to switch locations.. to something that would really capture the Costa Rican experience. Hotel Cerro Azul was perfect! The little cabanas were clean, quaint and I loved relaxing on the hammock (which... More
