“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Stayed here from only 3 days but was very pleasant, hotel was amazing, staff very helpful, volcano and pool view were indescribable. A paradise in the middle of a paradise. Weather kinda sucked in August but try to do everything in the morning cause in the afternoon always rains, yet we still enjoyed the heck out of the zip lines and ATVs. Back to the hotel though highly recommended remember when u see a bad review about a good hotel there is probably over demanding guests behind it. Pool was heated perfectly, jazcuzzis and sauna next to pool,not to mentioned a mini bar in the middle of the pool. Price was right and felt welcome. I will def go back to costa rica and same hotel.

Stayed at the Royal Corin for 3 nights. The suite is beautiful and the bathroom amazing! The hotel was very clean and generous with their towels. The hotel requires that a room key be inserted into a designated area to run the electricity in the room. We hade medication that required refrigeration. We called the front desk and told them our situation. They were accommodating and told us NOT to remove the key and that they would notify house keeping of our situation so as to make sure that the key was not removed. This took a huge burden off our shoulders as we were concerned about the medication. The medication needed to be transferred with frozen blue ice (which we brought), and again they assisted us in this. I can't say enough good things about the hotel! The heated pool was amazing! We saw the volcano for 15 minutes on the last day of our stay.. The weather was a challenge, but we went during the rainy season and knew what to expect. .

The rooms were nice, I had an excellent, and it was overall a very positive experience. We only stayed there for a couple days but we could have easily stayed longer if we had the time. A lot of things to do in the local town.

The staff upgraded us to excellent rooms, and we were on the all inclusive drink/meal plan. The drinks tasted great but were light on alcohol content. Surprised that the lunch menu was same as dinner.
Snacks at the pool swim up bar tasted great but took long time to get. We enjoyed having the hot tub jacuzzis in addition to the main pool, which provided a sense of having the place to ourselves.
Loved the stay!

We stayed at Royal Corin for the first 3 days of our honeymoon and were blown away. From the free upgrade to the master suite, fresh juice on arrival, and luxurious restaurant and pools, we felt treated like royalty. Everything was clean, safe, and relaxing. Staff were super friendly and accommodating, no matter what the request. The view of the volcano is outstanding and drinking a huracán in the hot-springs fed pool was the epitome of luxury.

Breakfast was the best meal we had in Arenal. Perfect mix of Costa Rican típica and familiar favorites. And the FRUIT!

Don't forget to meet Valentina and Alfonso, the huge iguanas. The wonderful groundskeeper let us feed them lettuce!

The only downside was our beautiful room had a mildewy smell, but I think that's expected in the rainy season when nothing fully dries. Cleaning staff did a great job!

Bottom line: Expensive hotel but totally worth it.

Nice hotel, beautiful landscaping around hot springs. Close to town. Junior suite was very spacious and clean. The only down side of room is the A/C, it didn't cool very well. Restaurant, was expensive and food was not great. Had better food in town at reasonable price with taxi fair. Getting pool towels was a little inconvenient. They required you to check-out / check- in towels or else there would be a fee.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

We stayed here for three nights while visiting the Arenal Volcano area. Overall an enjoyable experience. The property is a tad older (probably 20 years old) but well kept. The rooms are clean and somewhat modern to Costa Rican standards. There are several hot spring pools and smaller hot springs on property.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is a buffet and good amount of options. Lunch and dinner offer the same menu if you have the dining package.
Food is excellent.

My biggest complaint about this hotel is the service from one employee, Christopher. He misinformed us about our dining package and also had unfulfilled requests. Other staff was very helpful. When we checked out, this employee watched us load three large heavy suitcases. Not acceptable for a hotel that claims 4+ stars.
