Lovely grounds including a bird tree, river with lots of fish, and excellent view of the volcano. Rooms are spacious, showers large with plants and skylight. We only ate breakfast at the meain restaurant and it was fine, nice variety on the buffet (yummy cheese) and good service. We ate dinner at the swim-up bar and restaurant and the food... More

All kind of projects are usually connected with a good planning. Translating that to a hotel, we will have the Manoa hotel at la Fortuna, in front of the Arenal volcano. ¿Why? Because the basic idea of this hotel is to locate within a big garden several bungalows, with own access, nice view to the volcano, own garden, good construction... More

My family of three including 9 year old daughter stayed here at the end of March for 4 nights. The room was fairly large but missing a dresser, the three of us had to stuff our clothes in the nightstand drawers or desk/vanity drawers. But on the plus side there was a closet, pretty big shower and sink/vanity area, two... More

Amazing hotel with great pool and hot springs. It's a large complex so you can be carted around in golf buggies if required (or if it's rains!) but it's a perfect little paradise just outside of fortuna. Reminded me of the sort if complex in Jurassic park. Carefully constructed but plenty of wildlife to see including different types of birds.... More

We have traveled the world and stayed at some pretty amazing hotels and resorts. The Arenal Manoa Hotel ranks in our top five. Wish we could have stayed longer! It is a paradise. The hotel rooms are bungalows, which line several blocks of streets surrounded by colorful plants and trees. You can’t go far without enjoying a spectacular view of... More

What a wonderful resort. The word "hotel" does not describe it at all. The property consists of several streets lined with beautiful duplexes, each with a view of Arenal Volcano itself. The rooms are fantastic; huge and well appointed, with a gorgeous bath that has, strangely enough, an ornamental garden in it. Sounds weird, but it's awesome. The grounds are... More

Coming in late and seeing the volcano in the morning was amazing. Food just OK and you could hear the guests next door which kept this review from being 5 stars. But, we were rarely in the room and it delivered for what why we were there. We came with Adventures by Disney trip and the staff was very accommodating.

Our visit was arranged by Horizontes and we loved this place! We stayed in Room 235 and our view from our bungalow room was fantastic. We sat on the porch and listened to the birds and watched the steam flow from the volcano! The room was spacious and the bathroom was bright and airy. The open air breakfast was wonderful... More

We stayed several nights at this hotel and we spellbound by the grounds and view. That in and of itself is worth the booking. Each room has a small patio and you can sit outside and enjoy the birds, ground animals, view of the volcano, etc. Every evening, Cattle Egrets roost in the trees on the river across from the...
