Located at the base of the Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica (2.5 kms. from La Fortuna, on the road to Catarata Rio's Fortuna and only 15minutes by car from Tabacon's Hot Springs) with a spectacular view of the southeast side of the volcano, we have the advantage of being at a slightly higher altitude than La Fortuna, thus cooler. Also, we are off the main road enough to avoid the sound of grinding gears that are audible from almost all other hotels. The rooms are very spacious (32m2) with 1 double and 1 single bed, a large private bath with hot water, screened windows, ceiling fans, verandas with table and chairs, and landscaped grounds abundant with tropical flowers and birds. Full breakfast, available lunches, horse rental, laundry, internet service and secure parking lot.

Quiet/relaxing stay. Not very central. Good for people.with a vehicle. Can walk to to nearby town for food. No real common area to mingle with other guests. Breakfast served on site for 5 USD a person, quite tasty. Small bungalows.

If you're looking for a budget-friendly option a bit farther from the noise of the more central hotels in La Fortuna, this is a solid option. The grounds are quite nice, the rooms and breakfast are fine, but very good for the price we paid. We only met the owner very briefly at

Cerro Chato was recommended to me by a friend who previously stayed there, and I’m grateful for the recommendation. I love that it’s just a short distance outside the bustle of downtown La Fortuna, and you get to feel more a part of the natural environment. The cabins are so

Spent a couple nights over here and it was a great experience! The place is really nice and feels like you're deep in the forests even though its on a slightly-traveled road. You will certainly hear crickets and frogs at night. The only caveat is that it is a little far away

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cerro Chato - it was just what we were looking for in our accommodation in Arenal, somewhere to relax and immerse in nature. Miguel was incredibly helpful and showed us all the best things to do. The breakfast is delicious and definitely worth

"Peaceful location"
"If you want perfect quiet, ask for a standalone cabin as opposed to a room that is a duplex."
"We had room 4 it was a direct view of the volcano but all rooms are spaced out well enough and have views of the property."
"Try to get a cabin less away from the gravel road to avoid vehicle noise."
"All the private bungalows are amazing!"
$51 - $63 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
