Our family spent two nights at the Hotel Cerro Azul and enjoyed our stay overall. The staff were very friendly and the cabanas were nicely maintained and comfortable (if not huge). The back porches were especially nice for relaxing with a drink and a book. As it was very humid, we were glad to have air conditioning. The breakfast was definitely worth the $7 - good quality and delicious - especially considering that restaurants in La Fortuna are pretty expensive, overall. Actually, based on my research before leaving, a lot of the lodging in La Fortuna is fairly pricey (for a family of five) which made Hotel Cerro Azul a very good value indeed.

Lastly, the young woman with whom we interacted most at Hotel Cerro Azul had excellent English, and we were impressed that she had learned her English from the local high school and never lived in an English-speaking country - kudos to Costa Rican public schools!

This place is remarkable. An oasis in its own right. We spent three weeks in Costa Rica and this was the best place we stayed. We walked to and from town every day, sometimes twice. The staff is small, professional, and very helpful in suggesting activities for anyone who wants an honest, local opinion. We stayed 13 out of our 21 days in C.R. and did not want to leave this gem!

Room Tip: Ask for the cabin furthest north.. #8. From the deck there is a great view of Volcan Arenal.

What a great find that if not for Trip Adviser would not have found! We stayed 3 nights and the place was perfect for exploring La Fortuna. It is a bit out of town, but if I had to guess maybe only a 20 minute easy walk or so to the main downtown area and maybe 15 minutes to the nearest small grocery store and restaurant. We had a rental car but only used it for going into town for dinner as any tour we did picked us up at the front door. The owner was very helpful in addressing any needs we had and made it so easy to book tours in the area. We did the ATV and whitewater rafting tours recommended and both were wonderful. These are individual cabins that are very clean and comfortable and I would say a great value, I don't believe you will find a better value in Costa Rica. The breakfast as others have said was the best breakfast we had during our 11 day Costa Rica stay. The back porches of the cabins were wonderful to hang out in the chairs and hammock and just read and watch the local wildlife. The cabins were not huge, but had plenty of space for my boyfriend and I and 14 year old son. We also had a fridge in our room which was a luxury we did not have in any of the other more expensive places we stayed in Costa Rica and there was air conditioning. The owners want to make sure you have a great time and take care of their guests. There was not a view of the volcano from the cabin, but you could see it from the hotel grounds which was more than adequate. Would book again in a heatbeat!

This place was perfect for us. We visited Arenal with our three small children, and the separate cabins were perfect. Management was always very helpful: getting us taxis into town, recommending age appropriate activities in the area, and taking care of anything that arose. The location was great, being a 3 dollar taxi ride away from La Fortuna. The waterfall was a 7 dollar taxi ride away. It is also a short walk from a chocolate tour which we didn't have time to do. The flowers and trees on the property were beautiful. Not many bugs for a location right next to fields and a short walk to the river. There were butterflies and humming birds all around every day, and we even saw some toucans and other exotic birds. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Get a bungalow on either end of the row. #1 or #5. We loved # 1!!!
