Stayed in three cabins with our daughter and her family. Cabins were spacious, economical and clean located only a short cab ride to LaFortuna and a short walk to the free Salto water hole. Breakfast served by host was wonderful and filling. Alvaro was always very helpful in making recommendations/suggestions, getting tour discounts and calling for taxis. Would definitely stay... More

As a single senior lady, I was SOO lucky that the place down the road was fully booked and the owners drove me down the road to these lovely cabins. Gorgeous setting. This was especially appreciated after I sprained my foot on a hike the previous day and could do nothing but sit an look out the window! I kept... More

First off Alfonso is excellent. A great guy who did everything to make sure that we were happy and well taken care of. My Spanish is not great, he made every effort to talk with us in English, which I thought was very kind of him. After a wonderful breakfast made by his wife and taken on the patio of... More

Hotel Cerro Azul is a quaint, quiet little spot to stay just outside La Fortuna. It took us a bit to find it (we got lost a couple of times), but when we finally pulled in I had this huge smile on my face because it was just what I was looking for. If your style is more of a... More

This is the place to stay. The price is right, Alvaro and his family are very nice and accommodating, and the grounds are beautiful. We stayed a few nights in May of 2012, and loved it. Close to town, and closer to the waterfall. Which is a MUST. Swimming in the La Fortuna waterfall was a magic moment. It's also... More

My husband and I recently stayed in one of the cabins at Cerro Azul. The cabin was immaculately clean, had a mini fridge, and a front and back porch. The view from the front was the Arenal Volcano and the view from the back is flora and fauna (lots of birds and resident cows and horses). There is parking if... More

Hotel Cerro Azul is in a beautiful setting and operated by a concerned family (Alvaro, wife and son, Roy) who personalized their care and attention. The cabins have beautiful views out of both the front and back porches. It's conveniently located for people with vehicles and is clean, quiet, and surrounded by the flora and fauna (birds) that are one... More

I'm so glad we stayed here! My husband and I stayed at 5 different hotels on our trip to Costa Rica varying from big chains to small boutique hotels. Hotel Cerro Azul was by far the most charming and peaceful of our experiences. It's located on a quiet, brick road with a view of the volcano. The 4 cabins are... More

This was by far our favorite place we stayed in Costa Rica...and we stayed in 4 different places over a 2 week span, including a boutique hotel and spa. Alvaro, the owner, was very welcoming, as was his wife, son and dog! Alvaro was also very helpful with suggesting things to do in the area. We had a delicious breakfast... More

We chose Rancho Cerro Azul based on tripadvisor rating, it was disappointing. The place is very basic cabin setup, and the design is bad. It has an oversized washroom with a lot of space wasted, while the bedroom itself feels small. The shelf is in washroom, no place to hang clothes in bedroom, so everything is wet and hard to... More
