We stayed at 3 resorts during our trip, Kioro was the best! The beauty of the resort was eclipsed only by the service of the staff. Ceasar and Enrique (bar and restaurant) went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. The hot springs are something out of a movie and the view of Arenal (the volcano) is picturesque from... More

My family of 5 was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We booked it mostly based on the reviews on trip advisor. The photos of on the hotel website are not so great. Rooms were spacious and clean, and bathrooms were surprisingly nice. Room has a large jacuzzi which is not my thing, but our kids loved it. Beautiful grounds and... More

This was our first stop of 5 hotels in Costa Rica, and it was a great choice from our travel agent. The room was clean, we had a jacuzzi in the room, nice big shower, and lots of space. We were on our weddingmoon, (we got married at the next stop at the Anadaz Papagayo) and they were sweet enough... More

If your room is past 4 your wifi connection is absolutely terrible. Another disadvantage was the 5-10 minute walk in back on their pointless extremely curvy paths. Also don't go to dinner at the main restaurant it's not very good the meat's quality was terrible.

Stayed here with my family for 3 nights. In the Arenal volcano region. Very nice accommodations with hot tubs in the spacious rooms. Natural hot springs run through the complex.The restaurant food was quite good. Buffet breakfast included as well.

The hotel is great and the rooms huge! The view from the rooms is amazing. We loved sleeping with the windows open and waking up with the Volcano view. The spa is really really nice. You should try it.

We went here for a family visit in CR. We were promptly greeted and given a run-down of the policies and amenities available at the resort. The grounds are spectacular . Our room had a full sized hot tub, two beds, and an amazing view of Arenal. Unfortunately, the volcano was completely shrouded in fog for 99% of our visit,... More

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
