We enjoyed 3 wonderful nights at Kokoro! Everything about this place is #1, rooms, gardens, staff, food. We only had one problem, wish we would have booked it longer! I forgot one other +, the hot springs!! There is enough beauty right out the front door that one doesn't have go anywhere if they just want to relax! We will... More

Tropical and rustic, good view of the volcano. The Cabinas are perfectly sized and the beds very comfortable. We had a nice visit for the second year in a row, enjoyed the grounds and accommodations. They keep up the place with a large staff and are very responsive to their clientele. The hot springs were being renovated while we were... More

I had a lovely 2-night stay in one of their cabinas. Everything about Kokoro is very nice - location, reception, breakfast, room .....can only recommend it. For good (free) WIFI, one needs to go to the reception area, which was not a problem for me.

Beautiful grounds with about 8 cascading natural hot springs. Our room had a always filled hot tub in it with potential views of volcano. Unfortunately during our 3 night stay, the clouds, fog and rain prevented enjoying it. Might be best to go in later winter or dry season. Dinner at restaurant a little dissappointing and , as i now... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in late November. Everything about this place is fantastic! Let me first say that I had been planning this trip since February and had done extensive research on virtually every hotel in the La Fortuna area. I decided that Kokoro Arenal would be the best for our needs, which are low... More

We stayed at Kokoro for 3 nights in November. We drove from the Guanacaste area and enjoyed the drive up the curvy road. We arrived in the evening. The cabins are quaint, the bed was uncomfortable and the pillows musty. A nice breakfast was served each day, no other meals were served so we would head into La Fortuna to... More

Stayed for two nights in early November with my wife. Arrived at dusk, reception area was cool and reception employee Diana was very nice and helpful. Room and bathroom were spacious and clean. A/C worked well; did not use the TV. The WiFi worked fine in the reception area. Pool was not ready yet; the hot springs were comfortable but... More

First, I want to say all the employees are amazing and very nice. Our issues are with managements misadvertisement of their amenities, most of all the food. We chose to stay here because they offered breakfast, lunch, and dinner. THIS IS NOT TRUE! They offer a simple breakfast. NO LUNCH AND NO DINNER. They instead of a list of delivery... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in early November, arriving just as the sun went down. We were tired from a day of flying and the drive from San Jose. The reception attendant, Diana, greeted us with a smile, provided us with information about the hotel, offered to schedule any tours we were interested in, then showed... More

When me and my husband decided to host our wedding in Costa Rica, Hotel Kokoro was one of the first places we thought of. We'd been here before with friends and the view and location was exceptional. The owner Felico had made such an amazing impression on us that we reached out to them 5 months before the wedding date... More
