I travelled with the adult members of my family on a multi-city trip over the New Year to Costa Rica. The Arenal Volcano area was our first stop. The ride from the airport was very long as we landed in San Jose. When we arrived at the Hotel Royal Corin, the lobby was a stunning and welcome sight. I understood... More

We stayed two nights for the weekend after Thanksgiving. We had a single two queen beds for Mom, Dad and the two kids. It was a little tight for the four of us and I wish we'd upgraded to a suite. The bathroom was fantastic with great towels and a upscale shower (think unlimited hot water, movable nozzle). The pool... More

This was the first stop on our honeymoon in 2011 and it was a great way to start our trip. The restaurants on site were excellent and the pool and the bar in the pool were amazing. The local town was a easy enough walk and offered many interesting local experiences, including a few good restaurants and stores. I would... More

We stayed at Hotel Royal Corin for three nights beginning November 21, 2014. We booked a standard room but we're upgraded to a suite with a balcony overlooking the Thermal pools and a 2 person whirlpool tub with a built in TV. The staff was welcoming and helpful with local tours. The downside was the the food. The price included... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. I found the hotel to be nice, but not spectacular. The rooms were very basic, but the views of the volcano are amazing. The pools are nice, but you will not get a hot spring feel from them as they are all shaped like regular pools, while the water they use is... More

The staff at the Hotel Royal Corin couldn't be more helpful. The waiters at breakfast take the time to ask about your daily plans and make suggestions and the front desk staff will do whatever it takes to make sure you have the information you need. The rooms are very nice and the hot spring pools are very relaxing. All... More

We were pleasantly surprised by how modern this hotel was. The service was great and the Lava Bar had top notch food and great atmosphere! Met the owner, who was friendly and welcoming, but not overbearing. Great view of the volcanoes and loved the hot spring pool and poolside bar. Also loved all the little nooks in the spring garden.

There were big ant and bees nests on out balcony we told them three days in a row to clean it as well as they made us get another hotel room for 1 more person because they only allow three adults per room

First of all we would like to apologize for not been able to fix the problem on time. When we had reported on the beehive on the balcony we started looking for the best way for you and for our staff to remove the honeycomb, is for this reason we didn't solve the issue in the time expected.

First time staying at Royal Corin and I have stayed at a lot of the hotels in Arenal. The staff are very friendly from the moment you arrive, you can tell they have been trained well and are genuinely interested in you. The hotel is a little different, being more like a hotel structure rather than cabins or separate rooms... More

This was my first trip to Costa Rica and I wasn't quite sure what to do or where to go. My girlfriend initially planned the trip with a friend and I was just a tag along. As she was extremely busy we were a little late picking hotels and making plans until about a week before we were scheduled to... More
