This hotel is worth it! We stayed three nights at the hotel and everyone was courteous and professional. The hotel grounds and hot springs were wonderful. The best resource there was Isaac at the front desk! The room was grand and the view was spectacular.

From the moment we arrived at the Arenal Kioro our entire stay was beyond the five star rating! We were immediately greeted by Wilbert and Isaac who took great care of us. Isaac brought us a welcome cocktail of our choice while we relaxed in the open air lobby and soaked in the beauty surrounding us. Isaac then took time... More

This is a great hotel, with a great view on the volcano. The room is very spacious, clean. There is a spa in each room. The garden is amazing all around the properties.

My wife and 3 sons (17, 14, 11) loved it here. Because we traveled with friends we split across 2 rooms, however we would have been very comfortable if all 5 would have been in 1 room. The room was very large. 2 queen beds and a separate trundle like bed in a separate room with a desk. Additionally each... More

Rooms are nice! Pretty view of volcano when you can see it (rain and clouds impacted our stay but we expected rain, as season we were there). Breakfasts were good with variety, made to order omelettes, fruit, fresh juice etc. Dinner was ok. Food was decent, but a little over priced for the quality. Better food in La Fortuna, but... More

The grounds of this resort are so lush and beautiful! Great view of the volcano and the suites have two balconies at opposite ends of your room. The staff was great, especially Victor and Wilmer at the front desk! Wait until you see your suite-just beautiful! Every meal was excellent too!

There are so many great things to say about this hotel. Beautiful grounds and excellent staff who are eager to help with any kind of issue you may have. Some tips. A taxi ride one way to La Fortuna is 16USD which is too much. It is 10 min away and we went into town sometimes twice a day. We... More

Our stay with Kiora was perfect from beginning to end. We were very warmly greeted at the door to our shuttle by a staff-member who took our luggage and escorted us directly to the reception desk.
