I really enjoyed Hotel Cerro Azul Arenal. The family is charming and very helpful, the breakfast delicious, and the cabins clean, spacious and comfortable with good showers and air conditioning. I really liked that there was a front and back porch. The back porch had two chairs, a small table and a hammock and had a beautiful garden view.
As some have said, it's a short distance out of town (about 1 mile) but a cab ride is only $3 or it is a pleasant 15 minute walk which we felt comfortable doing even late at night. Also, the host Alvaro had a menu for the best soda (Costa Rican term for restaurant) in town and would happily order for us when we didn't want to go into town and the delivery fee was $2.
It is on the road to the waterfall and the Cerro Chato hike, two of the best attractions in the La Fortuna/Arenal area.
What I liked about Cerro Azul was that it was close to town but a little out of town so that I felt that I was in the countryside where there was peace and quiet.
There is access to the river at the back of the property which I enjoyed swimming in.
It would have been perfect if there was a TV to watch at night!
