The resort was beautiful, service was superb. We especially loved the vista room with view of volcano, the springs at the river, and the accommodating and attentive staff. The hotel is a bit off the road and not walking distance to La Fortuna. Don't miss the wildlife refuge at the hotel.

My mother and I stayed at this resort and it was truly spectacular! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and they take your luggage for you to your room and drive you around the resort in golf carts. They were so accomodating bringing our rental car up to us whenever we needed it or with anything else. We were... More

The location in the rain forestis exceptional. All rooms have a view of the Arenal volcano. If you want ot relax you can swim up to the bar in the fresh water pool or you can soak in the hot mineral pools, each of a differnet temperature. If you want action, ther is horseback riding, tubing, kayaking and zip lining... More

It was my second time here and it was amazing again. All the staff are friendly, the rooms and the food was excellent. Club Rio is better each day and I met a new baby monkey and a baby puma... the cutest thing! It's, without doubt the best resort in Arenal...

Incredible ! This resort has everything ! Our room was spacious, impeccably clean and modern. The bed was very comfortable. The pools/hot tubs (all 30+) of them were scattered all over the property. There is so much space that even with full capacity of guests we usually had a pool or hot tub to ourselves. The views around the property... More

An amazing place with amazing people that really care. We traveled from Florida to Costa Rico for the first time and it was better than we imagined. The resort was one of the nicest we have ever been to and we travel a good deal so I feel comfortable saying this. The rooms were big and over the top beautiful... More
