The Hotel has a great view to the Arenal volcano, the rooms are spacious, comfy and clean. The personal is committed to offer a great customer´s experience. Nice gardens for walkouts and places to read and relax. This is based on multiple-building of 3 floor each. We stayed in the farthest from the lobby and you can sleep with the... More

I had stayed at this hotel over 2 years ago and had loved every bit of it. I came back last week and realised a lot has changed. The first room they put us in stinked of moist smell, the jacuzzi looked dirty (I'm pretty sure the water had been sitting there for days), the wireless wasn't working, the air... More

The rooms are spacious, clean, and even have a full jacuzzi in the room. The grounds are lovely, and there is a full view of the volcano. The restaurant is also worth the price. There are lukewarm hot springs on the hotel grounds, but the hotel also owns a property next to the Baldi hot springs that is very nice.... More

We debated quite a bit between Nayara, Tabacon and Kioro. We went with Kioro because that was the only one available. But then, are we glad that we did that. Kioro was absolutely fabulous. A huge property, with amazing gardens, beautiful rooms that fit the whole family, inexpensive, and great service. When the hot springs were not working for a... More

Every once in a while you luck out (US English use of the phrase!) and come across an amazing hotel. The staff could not have been nicer, from the free 'welcome' pina colada/ guaro sour cocktails we were given upon arrival to the fact they drove up to collect us and our baggage from our room when we checked out...

You know what they say... A place to die for,... NOOOO! Kioro makes you want to stay as alive as possible to enjoy its beauty! That is a word to describe Kioro! Beauty! Rooms are huge and very comfortable, largest windows that I've ever had in a hotel (Facing the rainforest and the volcano), minibar, coffee maker... the jacuzzi! Oh!... More

While driving through La Fortuna my eyes were always on the volcano to my left, and at one point I saw a resort of some sort much much closer to the volcano, and away from the main road than the others I could see. We eventually saw the turn, and finally arrived at Kioro, and it was the place which... More

I was really looking forward to HOT springs to work out some kinks from a week kayaking, but the water in all the pools (and the "sister" hot springs) is about 98 degrees. Pleasant, but we had to fire up the in-room Jacuzzi for a good soak. Maybe we shudda spent the big bucks on Tabacon. Everything else was enjoyable,... More

Nicest hotel I have visited just about anywhere. HUGE rooms with large Jacuzzi - high vaulted ceilings - large picture windows facing the nearby volcano - beautiful marble bathroom with rain shower - separate toilet facilities. Hot springs are on the premises and there's a small bar near the springs with very friendly bartenders. Dinner and breakfast in restaurant were... More

We visited Costa Rica late October and spent 3 nights in this amazing hotel. The view from all bedrooms was the magnificent Arenal Volcano and uninterrupted rainforest. Within the grounds is a magical tropical garden which then leads to hot springs which we used every day. The staff are very friendly although the service can be a bit slow. Our... More
