Definitely an amazing view of the Arenal Volcano from our room 1001, which was perfectly located on the property map for more privacy without being too far from the main hotel reception, restaurant and pool areas. Our room was much bigger than we anticipated and it came with an indoor tub, we didn't remember reading that in the description, so... More

My husband and I spent 3 days at Arenal Kioro, overall the experience is average. Hotel is situated in La Fortuna which with a car is close distance to a lot of tourist sites and restaurants. However, service and staff at the restaurants in Kioro was the worst experience I've had. At the start of each dinner, the waiter would... More

The property is beautiful and the suites are great for families with children. However, the staff wasn't very helpful. We spent 2 hours one night trying to order room service -- only to end up with the wrong order. The manager did credit us and we didn't have to pay. My biggest complaint is that the hotel booked several adventure... More

Costa Rica has many things to offer.

Being greeted with a guaro sour was a fantastic way to start the stay. The hotel is perched on a beautiful forested hilltop, surrounded by beautiful scenery.
