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

Beautiful property among lush green of rainforest, with a tranquil sound of the La Fortuna river in the background. And very conveniently located from the town of La Fortuna, and the local activities. We spent four great days here, and would love to be back. The best experience is the family who runs the place, who makes you feel completely... More

Tatiana and her father are great hosts, we drove in very late at night and they were waiting for us in the road side. The cabanas are clean and with a/c, very quiet area. we chose this place since it is very close to Catarata de La Fortura, the Arenal Volcano, and to the zip lines at Mundo Aventura and... More

Stayed in one of the charming cabins for three nights while exploring the la Fortuna area. Tatiana and family were very welcoming to our family ; Tatiana booked a tour of Cano Negro and also a combination tour of the LA Fortuna area for us, really enjoyed the tours! Would definitely recommend both! Started the day off with a typical... More

We had originally planned to stay 2 nights here and 2 nights closer to Lake Arenal. But we decided to spend all 4 nights at the Hotel Cerro Azul and we are so incredibly happy we did. The family is wonderful. Tatiana helped us plan a lot of things to do around La Fortuna and Volcan Arenal. Alvaro was super... More
