My daughters (12 & 17) and I stayed here for three nights and absolutely loved it. Gorgeously landscaped grounds, huge luxurious rooms, stunning views and warm, helpful staff. Breakfast was excellent, but would recommend eating dinner in La Fortuna if possible, as food was overpriced and bland.

My family stayed at this hotel on a family trip to Costa Rica. We all thought it was a great place, and very comfortable. The hot springs were not very hot, but great anyway. The pool was warm and had a great view right next to it, as like he rest of the hotel. Overall, it was a nice place...

This hotel was great for our family. It was quiet and the gardens very pretty especially with the Volcano ever present in the background. My son enjoyed the ping-pong table. We all enjoyed their hot springs. This beautiful location however sacrifices the proximity to la fortuna which was a hassle having to pay a taxi 8000 colones each way the...

I didn’t like this hotel. It is very well appointed (rather over-appointed), with very polite professional (too slick?) staff. We were told when we arrived that it was advisable to book a table for dinner, so we did; but the dining room was about 25% occupied. The main courses were basically good ingredients covered with over-complicated and over-sweet sauces. The...

We recently stayed at this gorgeous hotel for one night in January. The rooms were very spacious with amazing views of Arenal. Keep in mind that the lava is not flowing right now but you have an unobstructed view of the volcano from each room. The food was great & the service was spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed the hotsprings...

Service was spectacular. Food was great. Room was nice and big. Beds were ok, not great comfort wise but worth it to see the volcano up close. The property was beautiful, immaculately curated. The natural hot spring pools were the bet. Would highly recommend.

Our recent 2 night stay at Kioro was fantastic. The staff there was among the best I've ever seen, and seem very glad to help. They were always there when needed, even bringing us towels to the hot springs without being asked. Rudy, who helped with the checkin, called me by name throughout the stay, which I appreciated. The grounds...
