The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the hotel staff is super friendly and helpful. Victor was very welcoming and helped book our Ziplining through the rainforest. The views of the volcano are also fantastic! The rooms were clean and we enjoyed the hot tub in our room!

As most all the other 5 dot reviews, just about everything was great. The few slight negatives... The exercise equipment wasold and in disrepair. The garden walkways are a little hard to find your way around for the first little while. They wind around through the gardens... No direct route from point A to point B. Otherwise, all was excellent.... More

This hotel had beautiful tropical gardens, and large suite rooms, with a view of the volcano, which we didn't actually see as it was covered in clouds when we were there. The hotel staff was wonderful. United Airlines lost our luggage by not forwarding it to Aeromexico and the staff made numerous calls for us throughout the day trying to... More

The hotel is stunning! The grounds have a beautiful, tropical feeling. You are surrounded by tropical plants and the Volcano!! From your room, you open the curtains and there is the Volcano; wow! We were very lucky to see it many times because it does fade away behind the clouds. The food was delicious. My only complaint would be the... More

Upon opening the curtains in our extremely spacious room (in-room Jacuzzi included!), we beheld a breathtaking view of the volcano - there's nothing but jungle between the hotel grounds and the mountain. Unfortunately, we did not see it again during our stay because of clouds, but at least we knew we were in the right place. The room was very... More

We had three rooms and stayed three nights, but could have happily stayed longer. The grounds are spectacular, the view unchallenged, and the rooms spacious and perfectly appointed. Every detail was attended to. The staff was over the top friendly and helpful at all times. The food was less than 5-star and the hot springs were not quite hot, but... More

Absolutely breath-taking resort. The grounds are the most colorful, well-manicured, and natural Costa-Rican we experienced our whole trip. Every room has a full floor to ceiling window view of the volcano - AMAZING! The staff was incredible - sat down with us when we got there and brought us a cocktail - who does that?!?! We had the cutest little... More

What a fantastic place to stay. Our only deep regret was we couldn't stay at this hotel longer. We were limited on time and placed 1 night here and 2 nights in monteverde. In hindsight, I would have reversed it. We just can't say enough about how great this place was -- the staff was so helpful and friendly, the... More

We stayed for two nights on a group trip for a conference and found Kioro to be the best hotel that we encountered in our trip. The design is very modern, the landscaping takes advantage of the extraordinary Costa Rican Flora and this in return attracts the birds and wild animals. Rooms are organised in separate buildings with each containing... More

This is a fantastic hotel with great views of the volcano (early in the morning). The rooms are HUGE and very comfortable. Staff at the hotel were wonderful and extremely friendly. We would definitely recommend this property if you wish to experience the Arenal region. The Kioro has beautifully landscaped gardens with lots of birds and flowers.
