I'm a bit late on this review but better late than never. This was a beautiful hotel with a great view of the Arenal volcano from our window! The property was much larger than we originally thought. Lot's to explore and they even have their own hot springs. We enjoyed breakfast in the mornings and the staff there was extremely... More

This lovely hotel was just a few miles outside of the town of La Fortuna. Our room was spacious, very clean, and had an amazing view of the Arenal Volcano. The rates were reasonable, and the hotel even arranged for one of their staff to transport us to a day of sightseeing and activities such as zip lining. The hotel... More

On our trip to Costa Rica we booked all the hotels last minute the day before. We got an excellent deal here and the rooms were extremely nice. A bit humid without the air conditioner but once you turned it on the room was great. The WIFI you had to go up to the lobby area to use it but... More

Hotel Kokoro is nestled in the jungle, just a few miles west of La Fortuna. Each hotel room was its own little cabin, beautiful wood designs, nice king size bed, modern bathrooms, functional AC. The hotel is spread out on beautifully landscaped grounds. There is a small pool. The staff is very friendly, and the reception area is this big... More

For $100 a night, the privacy, lush grounds, on-site hot spring and pool, outdoor breakfast, helpful and friendly staff, and convivial open-air reception area and social hub really set this place apart from the bargain-basement row house hotels and the overpriced resorts. Cabinas are huge. Showers are modern and large enough for two people. The family owners really get to... More

This place rocks! You get the great views of the volcano, it's just enough out of the main town to be quiet and tranquil, the grounds are beautiful, the breakfast is hot and delicious and the service is on point. They will make sure your experience is wonderful! Not to mention the hot springs located right on the hotel grounds...wow!!!

First of all, I must say that this hotel has the friendliest staff ever. When we arrived, Diana the receptionist greeted us and explained everything in detail. We were escorted to the room which looked very nice and had a little porch that faces a small local forest. The place was lush and beautiful. After we checked in though I... More

This hotel was a gorgeous surprise. The grounds are lush with tropical plants and flowers and the open reception area is the first of many lovely areas to explore. I loved my one room cabin with it's porch from which I enjoyed the view at the foot of the Arenal Volcano. The room was large and comfortable with a good-sized... More
