This is a large sprawling facility made up of more than 100 separate duplexes, all of which face the Arenal volcano. The grounds are magnificently landscaped. Be prepared to walk a bit from your room to the restaurant or pools. The rooms are comfortable, if not luxurious, and ours was very clean and well maintained. Rooms are equipped with showers...

This hotel is situated in a beautiful very extensive natural setting. The rooms are well designed and there is a very good transportation system from rooms to reception or the restaurant when needed. The dining room is semi open with beautiful views, including the Arenal volcano although there more often than not is a cloud around the summit. There is... More

This hotel rates at the top of my list for the 5 hotels in Costa Rica where we very recently stayed on a 9 day tour of this beautiful country. It was overcast and rainy for both days we stayed here but that did not deter at all from our enjoyment of this excellent property. Arenal Manoa is simply first... More

Everything in the room was quite basic and very outdated (1970s/1980s style). The bed was not especially comfortable. Several basic items were provided in very limited quantities (towels, pillows). The room had a tiny closet wedged into a difficult-to-reach corner of the room. Accessibile by a somewhat rough unpaved road from the highway. Rained the entire time we were there... More

What a lovely stay we had at Arenal Manoa! The grounds are gorgeous - a feeling of total peace with nature. This resort is for families, couples, friends..really anyone. There is lots of privacy as each group reserves their own cabin! My sisters and I stayed in our own cabin (two double beds and a pull out cot) and we... More

Like I said, wow.. I really wasn't sure what I was thinking when I booked this hotel. I really thought it was just going to be like any other hotel because of the price. Didn't realize we booked a RESORT! :D It's like a little neighborhood with private villas. The views are absolutely stunning inside the room as well as... More

We recently stayed at Arenal Manoa and were so impressed with the beauty of the setting and the wonderful service of all of the staff. The hotel rooms are private and spread out over the property which contributes to the beauty of the property. The breakfast was delicious and the staff very responsive to every question when booking tours etc.... More

We had a comfortable stay at Arenal Manoa. The restaurant food is quite average but the common areas and the gardens are very beautiful. We also thought the tours offered by the concierge were very expensive, probably better to browse for alternative providers.

Beautiful gardens, big and confortable suites with astonishing views of Arenal volcan, nice staff, good food and a very warm thermal pool with wet bar. This is the place to stay when in Arenal area. Have to go back :)
