I feel it is my duty to inform everyone that this hotel is dirty and full of mold. The management does not care about their guest and refuses to address the issue. I checked the hotel across the street and it did not have any mold and was a much better hotel all around. You will find the staff is... More

While this may not have as much zen power as the other larger thermal hotels in the area, this is a great place if you are out and about for much of the day, as we were. The rooms were well appointed with a volcano view ( when it finally cleared) and immaculately kept. The pools are yes, smaller and... More

The Hotel Royal Corin is beautiful on the inside and kept very clean. It has an interesting Asian theme for art/decor and the hot spring pool was very nice. The room was fine but could have used some updates--the wall paper was peeling in some areas, shower tiles were missing, and the safe had a key instead of a lock... More

Our first trip to Costa Rica. Absolutely loved Royal Corin. Everything about this hotel is quality. Great food, room and pools. Loved the swim up bar. Our server Daniel went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. Great complementary breakfast. Food in restaurant was top quality. Would recommend this hotel highly.

Food was good for the all-inclusive price. The hotel looks breath taking in pictures but when you get there you realize that the pools are very small as well as the hotel. I do not know if it was because we are locals but service wasn't as good as I thought it would be, specially the bartender at the wet... More

Its our first time in the Arenal region and my wife and I wanted to stay at Nayara and Springs. They were both fully booked as well as Tabacon so we stayed at the Royal Corin. We were skeptical at first (given the lower pricing) but were very pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a junior suite and the room was... More

Me and my girlfriend are having a wonderful time at the hotel. Very clean, and beautiful to look at. The pool is heated by a natural hot spring and the view of the volcano is amazing . Your stay comes with a decisions buffet breakfast. The rooms are all marble and brand new. Amazing

Great buffet breakfast! Hot springs whirlpools were wonderful. The grounds were well kept. Enjoyed a great time. The front desk attendants were helpful in all areas. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the pools and wildlife in the area. The rooms were comfortable and clean.

We loved this hotel. It was our favorite during our 10 days in Costa Rica. We had a junior suite which was massive, two balconies overlooking the volcano, and with a TV in the jacuzzi tub. Never used it....we had hot springs. The the hot springs were clean and great to have on premise. I enjoyed the swim up bar,... More

Check in was not pleasant, the young man Julio did not smile and there was no welcoming gestures. He explained all the hotels services rather quickly and like a robot, after our 5 hour drive we couldn't take it all in. Apart from another incident with this not so obliging young man the hotel is quite lovely, our room very... More
