Very nice stay, clean lodges. Miguel and Carmen are very friendly and willing to help. Breakfast is typical Costarican and nice. Place is quiet and has a good view on the volcano.
If you are lucky, Miguel will push the button for you and make the volcano explode ;-)

I have stayed at Cerro Chato with Miguel and Carmen for the past 6 annual trips to La Fortuna. I keep returning because of the service, cleaniless, Carmens Concina and the super service offered by Miguel in arranging everything from trekking,wildlife trips , hot springs and my favorite white water rafting. They make me feel that Cerro Chato Lodge is my home away from home. Try them out you won"t be disappointed. Mr.Marko

Room Tip: Each room is its own hut and there are a couple of attached huts for bigger groups or families.

The lodge is situated a little bit outside of the city. The bungalows are functional and clean and the hosts are very friendly and had given great insider tips. In the morning they served a typical costa rican breakfast which was very good. The only disappointing point was that the volcano was not active anymore and we have never read about this but there are great hot springs and many thing more to explore.

My family and I stayed at the Cerro Chato for 2 fantastic nights. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The grounds are beautiful with little hedges to guide you, and beautiful and unique trees. Miguel, the owner was so helpful in booking excursions and so down to earth. I really appreciated his perspective on "pura vida" as well (pure life, the Costa Rican slogan). Carmencita cooked us a delicious breakfast every morning. When I go back to Costa Rica, I will definately be staying there again!

Room Tip: Room 5 was excellent with a double bed and a single.

We truly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. Miguel and Carmen were excellent hosts. The grounds are beautiful and we also enjoyed a swim in the pool. The breakfasts were delicious and kept us fueled up for our cycling adventures. The lodge is about an hour walk to La Fortuna. If the walk is too far Miguel will be more than happy to call a taxi for you. The lodge is quiet and clean. If we are ever in the area again we will stay again. If you need some groceries there is a store about a 20 minute walk away. You can arrange to have supper at the lodge if you like, the food is really good. Another option is to walk down the hill to a little soda on the left hand side called Soda de Tilapia the food is very good too. Miguel is very helpful if you need help with your trip plans or transportation.
