First of all, this hotel has an amazing view of the volcano! It seems like every room has a view! The hot springs were great but we did notice that the bottom pools were significantly cooler than the higher up pools. The rooms are spacious, nice balcony, the Jacuzzi in the room is nice, big shower, my only complaint is... More

This hotel was part of a package that we put together months in advance. The hotel itself is beautiful, especially the grounds and hot springs. The pool looked dirty and cloudy so we didn't get in that at all. The service was very good everywhere, except at the tables in the pool bar area. It was very slow and food... More

I'm really torn on my time at Kioro as it was truly beautiful and the room was possibly the largest room I've ever stayed in. So large you could fit 4 King beds in it or in there case 2 Queens and 1 massive hot tub, however this is not a 5 star property and maybe even not a 4... More

Arenal Kioro had incredible views of the lush green mountains in the distance and of the volcano, of course. Our room was very spacious, with a cottage-type feel, and had its own hot tub which was a nice touch. They had amazing strawberry margaritas and overall the food was good. We were greeted very nicely by smiling staff with some... More

We flew into San Juan and got the rental car(you definitely have to purchase insurance) and drove several hours to Arenal Kioro ...Traveling was an adventure and one definitely has to pay attention to the road with construction abound and lack of roads (cave ins) especially on the way to the mountains. All roads were curvy and seldom was there... More

This was one of the most interesting hotels we have ever stayed at. Between the views, topography, lush hotel grounds, included hot springs, and unique guest rooms with two story ceilings and in-room hot tubs, it's hard to imagine anyone not being satisfied with their stay here. Walk around the grounds enough and you're sure to see some of the... More

From the moment you arrive you can sense you are about to have a good time. The place is really nice, the rooms are huge, they even have a super Jacuzzi right in front of the window and you can see up close the Arenal Volcano. The termals are fun for all the family and the restaurant is a plus.... More

As a tour operator in Costa Rica, I get to inspect many hotels. The Arenal Kioro is a clean, modern, and offers good service. The hotels offers a beautiful pool and offers good views of the volcano. I can recommend this hotel to travelers looking for more luxurious accommodations.

We stayed at Arenal Kioro from Dec 22nd- Dec 24th. Of the three resorts we stayed in Costa Rica, this was definitely the best. Our room balcony opened up to the view of the Volcano and we did not need to go anywhere to see the volcano. The only downside of this resort is that it is about a $16... More

Only there for a very brief overnight stay, but it was a great experience. Rooms were huge with views of the volcano from every room (even though it poured rain for our 18 hour visit!). Great breakfast buffet.
