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

This resort was definitely 5 stars because of the great service and great food. We booked a package that included free breakfast and free dinner. Some of my friends had steaks so that was great! The front desk staff were very nice and the bartender makes great drinks! The jacuzzi in the room was great and definitely added points. I... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were really nice and clean. We had an excellent view of the volcano and the Hot Springs were to die for! You could easily spend hours in there. The complimentary breakfast was also awesome with a lot of variety to choose from. I wrote about this place on my blog and included... More

Had 2 separate rooms for family of 4 vacation. Biggest negative was they did not put both rooms in same building and were unable to accommodate this request during 3 nights we were there. The only other negative was quality of work out gym and pool tables. While gym was not expected to be large, I did expect the equipment... More

The hotel was great! Everything about it was perfect except for the horseback ride they recommended. The massage was amazing, the food was great ( I have become addicted to casados and find myself frying plantains), and the proximity was awesome. We were close to the national park and the hanging bridges. The people there were great and very helpful.... More

We were a family of 5 that stayed 3 nights. This was the first leg of our vacation and we couldn't have been happier. The rooms are huge. The in room jacuzzi is fantastic. The view of the volcano is incredible from each room. Unfortunately we only saw the volcano once during our stay. It was truly impressive how close... More

The Arenal Kioro is a very good hotel with great views of Arenal volcano. We stayed here for three nights - the location was nice, staff was good and generally friendly and accommodating. We had to change our plans and they were flexible with it. Our room was large and had 2 queen beds as well as a kid's bed.... More
