Even though this property is wonderful in every way, it was difficult to find. Maybe just us but we could not locate on phone GPS, Garmin GPS or signs. Actually not even sure it has an address! So have a good map on hand to find it. Costa Rica is not yet very concerned about signage, but getting better! The...

From the moment we set foot on this beautiful property we felt at home. Staff (Roy) was so welcoming with instruction and information. A cold drink was served and we were taken to our cozy cabin which was adorable surrounded by beautiful flowers and plants, a nearby river, animals walking paths etc. Wish I could have stayed longer. Would definitely...

This was our 2nd time at Cerro Azul. Little cotteges with a mini paradise of flowers and birds off the back porch with a hammock to better enjoy them. Bed was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We like staying here because its close enough to town but without the ambient noise and is just a few minute drive up to...

Stayed at this place 3 nights on my trip. Location was great--just outside of town and the grounds were very beatiful--lots of flowering bushes between each cabin. The cabin was comfy and cozy and I enjoyed the hammock on the back porch. Had a nice little hike down to the water. Within walking distance of the chocolate plantation tour (which...

There are many, many options for places to stay in the La Fortuna/Arenal area from so-called 5 star resorts/spas to hostels. This small, family-run place is a real find. We spent 6 nights in cabin 7 (king bed) and truly enjoyed our stay. Each cabin is well appointed and maintained (comfortable bed, modern bath, sitting area, outside porch, AC, decent...

This is a nice property located across from a small farm. The cabin that we stayed in was spacious and had a nice little porch out back with a hammock and table. Room stayed cool with the air conditioner and the beds were comfortable. Bathroom was very large although a little bit dirty. The property has a nice short trail...

Our stay was really good. Our hosts were helpful and the cabanas are clean and well maintained. There are lots of beautiful vegetation and birds around. The cabanas are a little way from the town of La Fortuna and it is probably best if you have transportation to get around. Overall this is a fine place to stay if you...

This hotel offers you a true costarican experience. We were very suprised at the overall quality of this hotel, every thing seemed quite new. You can listen to the jungle while you lay in bed while still being walking distance to town. It's about a 15 minute walk into town and a 25 minute walk to the La Fortuna waterfall....

Really enjoyed our two nights at this hotel. Had a nice private building with a bedroom, bathroom and deck. It was clean and rustic and very comfortable. Lots of easy parking, nice staff at the reception and working at the hotel. Breakfast was included and you crossed the street to the breakfast building. Excellent fruit plate and bacon, eggs or...

Only had one night here but the room was beautiful and clean. There is a balcony and a sitting area. All very welcoming. The staff left the towels in the shape of a heart or two swans and there were candles and flowers everywhere.
