Unfortunately our stay at Rancho Cerro Azul was average. Our welcome and initial greetings were ok, the person (name unknown) who was on reception seemed a little 'off' and seemed to lack people skills. He showed us to our room which was spacious and clean. Inside the room featured a little kitchenette, fridge, kettle, coffee maker and sink which was...

We thought it was nothing special, although the front desk and the kitchen people were very nice. The room was small and dark, but had a porch with a hammock. No pool. We moved to another hotel after 1 night and were happier there.

We stayed here for two nights and our lodge was beautiful. The room had a fridge, coffee maker, safe and air con and the beds are large and comfortable.

The pictures do a good job of showing the cabins. They are beautifully made and the surrounding landscaping is lovely. You can take a walk down to the river, which is nice. They are located just outside of LaFortuna , but too far to walk to town easily so I was happy we had a car to get around. The...

Hotel Rancho Cerro Azul is a scenic family owned and operated business walking distance from the famous La Fortuna Waterfall. Each individual cabin has a relaxing front porch and a back porch with hammock and table that we ate breakfast at each morning. The hotel is just far away enough from the city of La Fortuna to escape the noises...

Nice single Room cabin with a bathroom and mini fridge, TV, A/C, WIFI, and a small entry deck and back deck with a hammock. Friendly, helpful staff and good breakfast although $7 dollars a plate. The hotel is about 1 mile from town and about 2 miles from the waterfall.

Beautiful individual cabins, tastefully decorated with your own porch and hammock. Located a short walk down to the river for a relaxing soak. Many tropical birds right on the property. People were very nice and helpful along with planning a new breakfast area.
