My friend and I staid here while in Arenal. The girls at the front desk were very nice, as was the whole staff. It was a little difficult to communicate at times with the language barrier. I liked that they had a van that they only charged $8 each way to get down town. For the money this was a... More

Fantastic views from our big bedroom window, the breakfast was delicious, friendly staff, so many beautiful flowers and fruit trees and the natural hot spring pools were a perfect way to end our day to soak our tired muscles after hiking all day.

I'm a solo female traveler in my early 50's. I felt VERY safe at Kokoro. Almost felt like I was at home. Could have left my cabin unlocked and nothing would have been touched. Having stayed at 5 star hotels while in Costa Rica, when I pulled up to Kokomo I was a little uncertain. It's more like cabin style.... More

Me and my family recently stayed at Kokoro when we reached the "Arenal Volcano" leg of our trip to CR. The view of the volcano is breathtaking. The location is ideal, close to most tourist attractions. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the place. Rather it's quite fabulous for giving you a taste of the Pura Vida lifestyle that...

My family visited Costa Rica the first week of July and stayed near the Arenal Volcano at the Hotel Kokoro, just outside of La Fortuna. The hotel property is ideal, as it is very close to the volcano itself, and the various eco-tours you'll want to take. Within 15 minutes are canopy tours, zip lining, waterfall excursions, a national park,... More

Room was very spacious and had a hot tub inside the room! Two queen beds in room, table and chairs facing the excellent view of the Volcano from the balcony. Hotel was lovely with hot spring pools directly on the property. Was greeted with delicious tropical drink upon arrival. Just what I needed after the long trip from the airport.... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and the breakfast buffet was delicious. Our cabin was spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the a/c was great. Even when a storm knocked out the electricity..someone came right away to fix it! The thermal pool needed some work but the main pool was refreshing. On a... More
