Even before we arrived the staff was friendly, efficient, and extremely helpful with helping us plan our activities, transportation, etc. Unfortunately, I got in an ATV accident on the trip. Every single person from the bell boys to the spa manager not only took care of me, but even checked up afterward. Aside from the hospitality, the facility was relaxing,... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Royal Corin. The Master Suite was very large and plush. The king size bed was heavenly . . . we wanted to take the over-sized pillows home. The staff provided anything and everything we requested. One of the staff even gave my companion fresh batteries for her camera. The room service was prompt... More

I stayed here Mid June 2011 for 3 nights. Beautiful hotel, great location, great price (I believe we paid ~ $110/night) but with limited amenities. All rooms face the volcano and the pool. The pool was naturally heated and had a great swim-up bar, therefore no need to go to any of the hot springs. The hotel served a very... More

Had a wonderful time at this hotel. Only stayed for one night but the hot springs and spa were amazing.

If you're looking for an upscale experience, terrific service and a great location in La Fortuna, this is your hotel. My husband and I stayed at the Royal Corin four nights in January for his birthday and we absolutely loved it from beginning to end: The hotel arranged our car service from the airport and sent a great driver, Eduardo,...

The pool area was breath taking. The room was very attractive but the armoir/nightstands smelled weird. The mattress was broken down and made us roll to the center...definitely not a "Heavenly Bed." Good pillows and soft sheets. Hated the toilette paper roller. Very attractive modern bathroom but not enough counter space/storage and fancy shower functions did not work. Buffet was... More

Nicely appointed, very relaxing atmosphere. waitstaff and bartenders were great! beautiful rooms, comfy bed. Rooms have balconies looking up at the volcano (though we never saw it the last 3 days of 2010). Breakfast was only OK, but plenty of it! Thermals are hot here! The several hot-tubs vary a bit in temp from the OMG hot, to dang hot.... More

We ended each day in the volcano-warmed swimming pool with integral bar. Lots to do in the area and Royal Corin makes a great base. Trips into La Fortuna by taxi were easy and cheap, though the food in the (only) hotel restaurant was fine, too. Nicely maintained and well-built. A great place to stay.

Royal Corin is absolutely a class destination. From the moment we arrived for a 3 night stay during our honeymoon we were treated like the most important guests there and the rest of our stay did not disappoint. The highlights have to be the hot springs (which can make a cloudy day quite enjoyable), the view of the Volcano (you're... More

Very nice room, but due to weather no chance to see any volcanic activity. Understand from the locals that is a very occasional thing. Grounds are nice and the room was large, very clean and comfortable. We liked the welcome cocktail and the daily visit with little snacks. A nice touch. The hotel does not have an ATM and the...
