We stayed here for 3 nights and were so impressed. The cabins are very nice and set in lovely grounds which are maintained immaculately. The hummingbirds were great to see close up and we saw some kind of toucan and monkey as well as a host of other birds and butterflies. It was nice to stay outside La Fortuna and...

Pure Costa Rico with the few modern day amenities you might need - without compromising the beautiful simplicity of the country. The website does not do this justice. It is more elegant, refined in decor, simplistic in design, and flat-out peaceful with a tranquility that seeps into the soul. The staff, especially Roy, could not have been more helpful or...

We pulled up quite late and were so pleasantly surprised by the beautiful grounds and cute little cottages of this family business. Breakfast was across the street at a cute yellow house. We only got to stay one night but highly recommend it!

Was really impressed by Hotel Rancho Cerro Azul during our stay. Our little cabins was clean, and there was clearly a lot of attention paid in keeping it to a good standard.

After a long, winding, sometimes scary drive from San Jose to La Fortuna, what a relief to be greeted by the friendly and helpful staff of Cerro Azul.

We had a great stay here. The bungalow was beautiful, large, modern, semi-secluded and the people who worked here couldn't have done any better. It's a family business, so they actually care. Alonzo and Roy at the front desk, the mom and sister supplying food and the cleaning staff. A full time security guard, Juan, and he was walking and...

Cabins are new, clean and offer a great view of the volcano. Cabins offer privacy, with great landscaping and a fantastic breakfast across the street. These cabins are close to La Fortuna, but outside of the busy traffic and hustle/bustle. If you like birds instead of buses, this is the place.
