Unfortunately we could only stay here for one night, we would have been quite happy to stay another night if we could. The place is just off the road leading to La Fortuna (a $3 taxi ride to town). It's clean, fairly cheap, the staff are extremely accommodating - big thanks to Alonso for helping ua out when we'd misplaced...

If you are looking for a big resort, this is probably not the place you're looking for. That being said, you might want to think about staying here anyways. The cabins are wonderfully furnished, cool, and private. The nearest cabin to ours was probably 40 feet away. The hammock on the back porch was awesome, and the people were wonderful....

Dear Guest, Greetings from Rancho Cerro Azul Hotel We would like to say thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and sharing your experience you had. Definitely, we are not a Resort.

Loved having a little cabin to ourselves at the end of our 10 day trip. The location was excellent. Just outside of town and down the road from the La Fortuna waterfall. The grounds are gorgeous, with flowering plants everywhere, and a pasture with 3 Pinto ponies in back that we loved watching frolic in the morning. The breakfast was...

We just loved staying at Cerro Azul. The property has about 8 cabins. We were on our honeymoon and they were just so nice having your own little space with the front porch and the wonderful back porch with the hammocks. We had breakfast there every morning. The shower was big, and the space was just what we need. The...

Beautiful cabins in a carefully curated jungle garden are just the start. The family who owns and runs this gem is friendly and helpful. They seemed to be focused on our experience entirely.

Amazing location at the foot of a volcano. Minutes from an epic waterfall and on the same road as a chocolate tour. The family that runs Cerro Azul are friendly and exceptionally helpful. The cabins are absolutely beautiful, the grounds even more so. Stay here.

My boyfriend and I chose to stay here for 3 nights because it was a great price. It's a perfect place for people who have busy days and just need a quiet 'home base', as it doesn't have a lot to offer. Our room was very nice and served it's purpose.
