This place is one of the further hotels from the downtown area but very close to the volcano. The view from our balcony gave us a better view than any other place we went in the area. Other than the view, the other reason for picking this hotel was the on site hot springs. They were nice, but nothing like... More

My husband and I went here as part of a Swiss Travel day tour to the Arenal area. We were presented with a menu without prices because the meal was included in the price of our tour (perhaps a special menu for tour groups). The menu was fairly small- maybe 7 choices of entrees. I had the pork tenderloin with... More

This resort is breathtakingly beautiful. The service is impeccable. Everyone is willing to help you. Very friendly staff. Food is good. Drinks try the guaro sour...local drink...very good. The front desk will reserve whatever aventure you feel like doing that day and will give you maps on how to get to local spots like the waterfall. Rooms are clean and... More

Massive and very comfortable room with the volcano right outside the window. Hot springs in the gardens and a lovely pool. Welcoming and professional staff. It's quite a big hotel so maybe the feel is a bit distant, and we were disappointed with the restaurant - like all hotels of this type the prices were steep ($20-25 for a main... More

The rooms at this hotel are huge. Amazing space, very clean and with AMAZING views of the valcano and jungle below. There are hot springs on the property (when we were there in August- rainy season, the pools were not very hot, more warm). The people that worked there were extremely nice and accomodating. They even called and coordinated my... More

I stayed with my family in July. The property is beautiful, quiet, private and very close to the Arenal Volcano. We enjoyed the view of the trees and grounds and the sounds of nature from our room every morning, but weren't able to see the volcano at all through the clouds over our 3 day stay. The view was still... More

We loved our room -- it was huge and had its own indoor hot tub. The sitting area was generous and well-appointed. The grounds were lovely, too, with winding paths through lush gardens. Make sure to spend time in the hot spring pools. There is a series of seven of them with lovely waterfalls in between. And we were greeted... More

I went to Arenal Kioro with my family but would have loved it just as much as a romantic vacation or honeymoon. We all had a wonderful time. The gardens outside on the hotel grounds made the bottom third of the view from our huge room window a perfect balance against the rugged cloud capped volcano that took up the... More

Our stay in Kioro was brilliant and the room was absolutely spotless and very large. I took advantage of the volcanic mud facial and it was very relaxing and lovely. The breakfast was brilliant, with a lot of choice and the option to have a typical Costa Rican style breakfast should you choose. The dinner was good however the choice... More
