We stayed 3 nights here on the first half of our Costa Rica vacation. Travelling as 4 adults and a 16 m/o baby. Flew into Liberia and rented a truck, drove almost 3 hours to Arenal Volcano. Upon arrival we were greeted by smiling staff who quickly served us our welcome beverage, a delicious guaro sour, and walked us through... More

I recently stayed at Kioro with my husband for our honeymoon. I had learned of the place from a friend who had recommended the place after she had a great stay. We were visiting from Washington D.C. and had never been to Costa Rica previously. We were so impressed with this place! The service was excellent and all the front... More

This place continues to be the best in the world! I travel a ton for work. There's is a sushi taste like no other. If I like a business guest I will bring them here for work. Otherwise they get a beach restaurant.

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.

Roger Murillo was our event planner and based upon careful listening and communication via email, Roger came up with an all inclusive, package that was totally amazing.

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

This hotel was a great place to stay. One of the most amazing views I have ever been able to wake up to. Looking up from the base of that volcano and seeing smoke coming out the top was a one of a kind experience. Food was good and the staff were very helpful. Great wildlife in the area. Howler...
