Hotel Rancho Cerro Azul

Reviewed April 15, 2013

Alvaro and Tatiana are all about making you feel welcome and are eager to help assist you in any way they can. Despite my asking numerous (probably repeated) questions, Tatiana patiently explained or informed me as to what I needed to know in a friendly manner. The breakfast served by Alvaro's wife is outstanding! We enjoyed eating in a relaxed way in the open air, across from a pasture. There is a river to explore in the rear of the property. La Fortuna Waterfall is located close by. The sheets on the bed did not fit well, and kept coming off and the bed was soft (in my opinion), but some people may like soft beds. We wish this family much success -- they are making many travelers happy!

First of all. The owner of this property is great. We missed the hotel, how could we? the sign is so big!!!, and after a phone call the owner was waiting for us at the entrance so we couldn't miss him. Ater a warm welcome, including a welcom drink, we checked in. We were early and the room would be ready in 30minutes. They stored our lugguage and we went for lunch in La Fortuna, 3min by car. After we returned they put our luggage in the room and we where suprised. The size of the room much bigger then we expected. With a veranda on the front and back porch, 2 queensize beds, airco, satelite tv, fridge, great bathroom with real shower ( not one of those electroc once you see in CR a lot) and enough stortage space. On the back porch you have lots of nature, a hammock and lots of animals. We didn't, but our neighbours got up before sunset to see al the annimals. Breakfast the next morning is across the street, and was wonderfull. Just your typical american breakfast for one. The owner has plenty of knowledge of the arrea and has discounts with some spa's/hotsprings.

We where offered a discount if we would pay cash so keep that in mind. With onky 5 rooms this is the place to stay in la fortuna. We would recommend everybody to stay there and enjoy like we did. We wold love to have more time there, but are trip was moving forward.

Lots of very good things have been written about this place. But even after reading some of the excellent reviews, we are amazed by the place, the calm, the charm, the harmony with the environment and the great service. Unfortunately it was at the end of our trip and we only stayed 1 night, but will will be back. Thanks to Tatiana and her familly, they are very kind and provide and excellent service.

This place was better than expected. Alvaro and staff's hospitality was 1st class. Tatianna was so helpful with everything, thank you. Great place, must say hello to Luna and her son. Sim in the river and relax the night away. The free wifi was a nice bonus. I normally don't eat breakfast but I am glad I did when I was there. The best value in fortuna area. Last time I stayed I was at the fortuna inn, never again. Hotel Cerro azul all the way

We were only able to stay one night here due to prior reservations they had, but it was a very wonderful place. The cabins are quaint and clean and the location (amidst the lovely forest) is spectacular. It was very quiet at night (aside from the rain which was awesome to listen to), and the breakfast they served us in the morning was delicious! The girl at the front desk was extremely helpful and went out of her way to help us out. We would definitely return here!!

We spent 3 nights and plan to return! The cabinas are basic, well appointed, and clean, and the grounds and location are lovely. We loved the porch with the hammock facing a lush forest and listening to the sounds of the wildlife and birds. Alvaro and his family are fantastic hosts, they helped us make reservations for a couple of activities and get directions. Breakfast on the porch each morning was fresh and delicious and made our first stop in Costa Rica one of the best!

We stayed here for just two nights and would have loved to stay more. As others have written, this is a perfect location, just outside the town, very peaceful, but a short taxi ride or walk into La Fortuna itself. The gardens are absolutely stunning with hummingbirds flitting between the beautiful flowers just outside the balcony and the breakfasts on the family patio are amazing. Alvaro, the owner, and his family are the perfect hosts. Not only do they look after you extremely well, but they also give advice on where to go and will book taxis and packages for you - a trip to the Baldi Hot Springs in the evening is a must! As we waited for our shuttle bus on the last day, Alvaro even came out with a jug of cold fruit juice to cool us down. What a wonderful stay it was. Thank you, Alvaro.

Room Tip: Only four cabins, any one of which is perfect for a couple.
