My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in this amazing hotel. The rooms are the best I reckon we've stayed in with panoramic views of the lush tropical landscaping and Arenal Volcano, a huge Jacuzzi tub, King sized bed, his and hers sinks and private sitting area. We even saw toucans fly past our window! The springs were nice,... More

We traveled from the USA to Costa Rica for the first time. This hotel is really nice and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast each morning was a buffet and really good. The hot springs were not to crowded. We came in July and I was surprised at the rain and cold weather. Make sure you bring... More

Lovely stay, beautiful hotel, great volcano view (when clouds aren't around). Wifi in room was nice, but bathroom area was odd. Shower is separate, then you have to walk around wall into main room to get into bathroom. No big deal, but... Grounds were gorgeous and well-maintained. Hot springs were very nice, with several to choose fro. Restaurant was nice,... More

From the moment we arrived till the moment we left this hotel took my breath away! We arrived as the sun was setting and were welcomed by Rudy. He was very attentive and helped get us situated from the second we met him. Upon arrival he asked us our preferred drink choice and within minutes he was bringing over our... More

This hotel faces the volcano. On a clear day you get a marvellous view from your bedroom and the restaurant at the hotel. The hotel has its own hot springs. If that was not enough your bedroom has a jacuzzi. The rooms are huge. The place is clean. It is quiet. The view from the bedroom is superb, made better... More

Arena Kioro is a beautiful, secluded hotel in the foothills of the Arenal volcano. Although we were not able to enjoy the views we saw in pictures due to rain and cloud cover, the grounds made up for it. The hotel features several hot springs surrounded by lush foliage that can be enjoyed at no extra charge. We enjoyed being... More

Beautiful grounds but otherwise disappointing. We stayed 3 nights June 28-July 1 and booked through Expedia. The initial impression we had was impressive (served drinks, given a personal room tour, staff appeared nice) and the view from the room was beautiful. The hot springs were nice although small. The in-room Jacuzzi was also a nice bonus. HOWEVER, we had two... More
