The hotel has a good location and the surroundings are great. The garden is really well maintained and full of birds. We stayed in a "Casona" (not the normal bungalows) because we were 4 people and was the only option available and although it was clean, it was smelling like humidity. We complained and we got a dehumidifier but the... More

Hotel Kokoro is a bunch of individual bungalow style buildings. They are very spacious, big shower and bathroom, and a lot of room to move around. The window coverings are see through, which was one negative. The food was expensive and average, and as other reviewers have commented, it is a lot cheaper to eat in La Fortuna (however the...

My boyfriend and I spend 2 nights at Kokoro. The staff was really nice and helpful. The hotel is nicely located, close to the volcano & surrounded by nature with tons of birds. However, if you want to do any activities (no shuttle included) or want to walk in La Fortuna to shop or get something to eat, you really... More

I am currently staying at this wonderful hotel. The staff here is top notch. We have had numerous dealings with 2 ladies in particular -Diana and Lorna. Diana has always greeted us with a smile and helped us plan our activities. Lorna heard about our missing luggage and made numerous calls to the airport to try to locate it for... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Kokoro for a week. We did a ton of research before deciding to stay here and are glad we did. The hotel is beautiful. You have the pleasure of being surrounded by nature while still having the comfort of close by rooms. We did much sightseeing and were glad to come back to... More

We recently stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The negatives....there was not alot to do right by the hotel, but most of the hotels are like that. La fortuna is only a few minutes of a drive. The rooms were a little outdated with minimal lighting but very spacious. The positives....What a great view from our cabin. LOVED Rebecca,... More

The hotel is a lovely, peaceful spot away from the hustle and bustle of the Arenal area! Many resorts in the area seem to be luxury, expensive resorts. This is more of a mid-range resort. Nothing incredibly fancy but gorgeous landscaping and very well maintained. So many adventurous things to do in Arenal (which we did ziplining, whitewater rafting, and... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights as part of our honeymoon in Costa Rica. First off, the staff was wonderful and accommodating. Everyone we encountered was friendly and more than willing to help you get a taxi into town. Our room/cabin was sufficient, though a bit outdated. The breakfast was decent and the dinners were very good.... More

The reception we received upon arrival was wonderful and check in went smoothly! Michael was very pleasant, and took us to our villa, made sure we knew how to work everything, and answered all our questions. The next morning, Dayana was on duty at the desk, and set up all the excursions we wanted, gave us all the details we... More

I spent two nights here and loved the hotel. Very clean rooms and great staff. The rooms are well spaced and very peaceful. The pool and springs were very relaxong. Also good food and an $8 taxi ride to town.
