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

Right outside of the village La Fortuna, on the road to the waterfalls (that costs a steep $10 Per Person entrance fee) these are very attractively built wood individual "cabinas" in a pretty private garden setting. They are situated right on the road to the waterfalls and I was initially concerned about potential noise but there was hardly, any except... More

Highly recommended. My wife and I stayed 4 nights at Hotel Cerro Azul, and it was truly phenomenal. Wooden small cottage was very clean and spacious, and it has privacy. They have the large garden with tropical trees, and you can watch a wide variety of beautiful birds and butterflies come by, which we loved. In the morning, we woke... More

Stayed 3 nights and loved it. About a mile out of town so helps if you have a car; an easy drive. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Cabin style rooms are nice and located in a very nice garden with lots of birds around the balcony in the morning. Breakfast not included but available at a small charge, and... More

My husband and I stayed there two nights and it was amazing! We took a walk down to the creek that's down a little a trail behind the cabins and sat on the rocks. We did a hike up to La Fortuna and did a guided river rafting tour. I highly recommend it and it is so romantic and private.... More

We really loved place location and rooms of Hotel Cerro Azul! Tatiana was so helpful to arrange our local tours, rooms and transportation, she's so helpful in all the way to make our trip successful. The cabins were clean and comfortable! We enjoyed the lovely garden, relaxing hammock. Good place to stay close to center of the city.

We loved Cerro Azul! Tatiana was so helpful with any questions we had and always available. The cozy cottages were clean and comfortable! We enjoyed the lovely garden, relaxing hammock and a nice walk down to the river with their puppy Coco. We didn't have a car but the walk/stroll into town was only about 45 min. We did this... More

The cabins are nice and have patio with a hammock. We liked the rooms and ambiance. It was located a short 5min drive from town. The part I did not like was service or rather the lack of it. We wanted to do the venado caves tour on our own by driving there & getting a tour guide on site... More
