Wow. The staff here takes an amazing location and makes it even better. Views of Arenal cannot be beat. Food was good, it needed more kid options. But, breakfast was amazing. My wife reall misses the omelet bar. I loved this place and especially the staff.

Amazing hotel, view point from every room. Very nice pool , hot tub in every room. Breakfast is good but the food in the pool bar restaurant is terrible, too salty and expensive . Don't order any food from the pool bar.

We booked through a tour company and were very pleased with the room selection and view of the Arenal volcano (when the weather permitted). The rooms were very spacious with two double beds and a third single bed. Jacuzzi in the room. The grounds are full of Costa Rican flora and fauna. The hot springs on property made it very... More

We spent 3 nights at Kioro Suites in Arenal. We were greeted immediately with smiling faces and a cocktail, then shown to our room. It was clean, up to date, and spacious, with 2 queens and a daybed in a separate area, more than enough room for the 4 of us. There is an in-room hot tub but not our... More

This place is fantastic! The rooms are gigantic and very deluxe. The view of the volcano when the sky is clear cannot be beat. Yes the spa in the room never gets that hot and the fridge doesn't get that cold but that is not a deal breaker to us. They brought us ice for our champagne bucket a few... More

We really enjoyed the quaint environment, beautiful scenery and the hotel staff was more than helpful. It would have been better had it been all inclusive but it was still nice having breakfast covered. We would highly recommend coming especially if you like the outdoors and adventure

If you stay at or near the Arenal Volcano, this hotel is one of the best in the area. Great food, rooms, landscaping, pools, hot pools, spa, workout facilities and much more. The views of the Arenal Volcano are just spectacular. It rained a bit, but finally the clouds lifted and the volcano was right there, just terrific.

The daily buffet breakfast was delicious, and our dinner at the hotel's Heliconias Restaurant was outstanding. I had the sea bass and my husband had the Orchid chicken - both excellent.
