“Amazing hotel with hot springs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We stayed 4 nights at this wonderful hotel. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. Our room had a view of the volcano and the pool area. It was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was included in our rate and it was really good. The hotel is about 10 min away from the Fortuna by car.I highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again without a doubt. Compared to other hotels, you spend more money but totally worth it. Stay here and enjoy the hot springs!

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies with a view of the volcano and pool area

My Fiance and I went to the Hotel Royal Corin for 3 nights in late July and we were both extremely satisfied with our stay. The hotel and grounds were very clean and very pretty, with the gardens and Arenal Volcano in the backdrop. My Fiance and I didn't realize that July was a rainy season, so we didn't see a whole lot of the Volcano. We actually only saw it once over the three days we were there, but there are plenty of excursions to do near by to amuse anyone. The hotel staff were very helpful in advising us on the best and most popular excursions to take. We booked all of our excursions the day before we planned to do them and no problems with excursions being booked. We rented a car and drove from the San Jose airport to La Fortuna. The drive was about 2 1/2 hours and a GPS is definitely needed. The roads can be confusing and there are no highways up to La Fortuna from San Jose, so expect a long drive if you get stuck behind a truck on a windy road. Overall the rental car was a nice way to see the country of Costa Rica.

The excursions we did were all great fun, and we took a more relaxed approach and did one per day. It is definitely possible to do two per day though. The first day we did the canyoning tour which was great fun. Like i said it was the rainy season, so it pretty much rained all day, but repelling down waterfalls get you wet anyway. You repel down about 6 waterfalls and the guides do a good job of splitting the group up so you aren't spending along time waiting for the rest of the group. The second day we did the ecoglide zip-lining tour, which was also a great time. Thankfully the weather was pretty nice during our whole excursion which made for some amazing pictures.

The hotel food was really good. The pool bar served food all day and the restaurant was good also. The food at the restaurant was a little pricey but worth it. We drove into town for dinner one night and had a great authentic costa rican meal that was very reasonably priced. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. The pool bartender could have been a little happier but the night guy made up for it. The hotel spa couples massage is amazing and absolutely worth getting. The hotel pools and hot tubs are a constant 85 degrees and cleaned every night.

We got engaged our first night at the Hotel Royal Corin hotel and this hotel was definitely the best place we could have hoped to spend the first days of our vacation and engagement.

Room Tip: The higher floors of the hotel probably have a better view, but all the rooms look out over the volc...

I am currently staying at this hotel as I write this review. This hotel is just SO amazing I could not wait to write a review at home! The views from both sides of this hotel are breathtaking. Our room is clean, modern and comfortable. The staff are well trained and cater to your every need. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel. Don't go anywhere else!! They even helped us save money on tours! Definitely planning to come back here, this hotel is everything we hoped for and more. :) 5 star rating all the way.

We checked in with a party of 9 and were greeted with refreshing drinks, were given a brief tour and then our dinner reservations secured. Promptly went to the pool area and enjoyed all the pools (cold and hot) and saunas. The swim up bar very handy, yet it was the amazing view of the Arenal volcano from the pool that was breath taking!! The wait staff was TOP notch! We were pampered and truly amazed with the friendly nature of everyone that worked at the hotel. Had the good fortune of meeting the owner and enjoyed a nice night chatting with him by the pool. He has a vision for his hotel and it is clear that he works very hard so that this vision is implemented in every sense. The food was great and the liquor was top shelf. We chose the all inclusive package and it was well worth the expense.

It is really worth spending a little more and staying here. The suite we stayed was very large, modern, and clean. All rooms have balconies with views of the pools and the Arenal Volcano.

The breakfast is also very good and was included in our rate - really recommended if you do not want to drive to town just to get breakfast.

The location is a little far from the town, but with easy access and fantastic views of the volcano. I would recommend having a car.

Have in mind that the price of a daily pass for some of the hot springs nearby for a family of 3 or 4 would pay for most of the hotel rate, so it turns out cheaper than anticipated.

We choose this hotel as they are having a low promotion. I think at this price, it is very good value for what we get. The hot spring pool is fabulous especially after a long day of exercise. Room is clean and nice though the buffet breakfast is a bit disappointed. But having said that, I shouldn't compare it with those offered by resorts in Asia of the same grade.

If you are a smoker don't worry. You can always smoke in the privacy of your balcony. The hotel is beautiful and the food is absolutely amazing. Bear in mind there is no gift shop for toiletries you may have forgotten but it is only an 8 dollar taxi ride into the city where you can find all you need at the supermarket or pharmacy.

Room Tip: We stayed in a corner junior suite and it was worth every penny. The pool is very hot from the hot...
