Stopped in with the kids after dinner for a bit of fun. All the holes are themed after countries or continents. Some were quite challenging in design. Especially enjoyed the Canadian hole. Great way to pass a little time in the evening.

We were looking for something to do on a rainy day and passed this on our way back to our hotel. We stopped and had a great time. It's not the prettiest mini-golf course but it was fun. Our 5 year old loved it (even tho it was actually fairly difficult). We had a great time and were so glad... More

The course was undeniably fun, but not good, or worth the money. For 12 dollars i would have expected more, for example the quality of the courses. The ball often bounces off the track because of poorly built walls. But what i think is worst is the responses Reno makes to the reviews on tripadvisor. The answers are very defensive,... More

YOU CAN'T EXPECT DISNEYLAND FOR 12 BUCKS! Not in a 3rd world country which does not even have a mail delivery because there are NO NUMBERS(ADDRESSES) on anyone's door! "Course was UNDENIABLE FUN....IF the price was lower would have liked it better".. Couldn't this be said of everything! I really ENJOYED a meal last night ,but i would have liked... More

My husband and I absolutely love miniature golf and always seek out a course whenever we are on vacation. We stopped by Reno's before dinner in downtown La Fortuna one night. As the website states, right now they are only open at night (5pm and after) and the course is USD 12/pp (cash only). We were the only people at... More

We played over Spring Break & no one else was on the course. Kids really wanted to play and price was a little high $12 vs. states $6 a head but we played anyway. The holes with different countries theme was great and well thought out. We had fun but didn't like that some of the holes didn't have grass... More

Nice family I remember the family from TEXAS.At the time they played they DID have the course to themselves,and when that happens it easy to remember things..I remember the kids telling the parents they had fun and the father,the most reluctant of the group, singing at one of our holes..You also have to remember that comparing a computerized ,motorized ELECTRONIC...

Balls pop out easily wasn't what we were thinking. Owner wants out but is stuck with a flop. Might be the reason for $12/player?!

Grab a bite and a few cocktails in La Fortuna, then head to Reno's mini golf for some silly fun. This is not your traditional mini golf course. Then again, you're not in suburban America. Reno has created a very unique mini golf course that blends challenging courses (some very) with world themes and interactivity that culminates in the area's... More

My husband and I went here while we were staying in Arenal, and I have to scratch my head at this place. It's over-priced, and the holes are all based on different places (cities, countries, even continents). The one for Africa, with the monkey and kidnapped woman, was quite racist and my husband and I just shook our heads in... More

We played mini-golf at Reno’s International and we had a really good time. We went with my two sons, aged 4 and 8, and we were there during a downpour, making it a perfect afternoon activity. The kids LOVED all the different holes, and the little animatronics and sound effects. Cheesy as it was, it was somehow cute, and really... More

I couldn't recommend it more, so many nice touches to the course. It was great having each hole based on a different country!
