We stayed there for 4 nights and the place is beautiful. It's 12 min out of Fortuna by car so you need a car or taxi it is. Staff friendly and helped with a mixup of our booking. We booked a cabin and when we got there they wanted to put us into 1 room of a 6 plex. One... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and for the price this was a great deal. It is located adjacent to the Nayara with great views of the volcano. The location and grounds are beautiful with exotic trees and incredible wildlife as if you are in the paradise! The breakfast is actually nice with the breakfast area teeming with interesting tropical... More

Our cabin was cute and cozy. Very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Pool and hot springs were perfect for our needs. Especially after a day hiking. Breakfast was very good. Perfect to get you going for a full day of activities. We enjoyed the chickens and rooster that hung around the grounds.

Great little cabins with one of the best views of Arenal. Nice pool and a small hot spring on property. Only downside is there are no amenities like a place to get food, snacks, drinks (other than bad wine and beer). Not close enough to walk into town.

Lovely cabins! Quaint location at the edge of Arnel volcano, has its own hot springs. Food here is great and price is good. Staff is helpful! Definitely recommend it to couples and families, it's your escape in to a paradise. Wifi available at the front desk and restaurant. Over all a peacefully pleasant experience!

There are a lot of nice things about this hotel - but it left us feeling like it could be so much better. The price is very nice and much cheaper than other options in the area but still didn't seem worth it. Pros - View of Volcano, Free Breakfast, Good wifi in public areas. Also, the ground is beautiful... More

We loved Kokoro. The grounds, pool, springs and foliage were beautiful. Even though dry season it still rained daily in evening, never a clear view of volcano, cloudy side, but still nice. Nothing ever dried out so a guest dryer would have been great. Rooms spacious, a little dark and mattresses need updating. Beautiful murals though out property. Breakfast substantial... More

We stayed at kokoro for two days as part if our "Costa Rica roadtrip". The hotel has a great location and the property is beautiful. Staff was super nice and helpful ( as most people in Costa Rica). The room was ok, nothing luxurious, but perfect for a good night sleep after a day full of fun adventures. I really... More

We stayed in 4 different hotels in Costa Rica. They were all nice, but Kokoro was our favorite. The grounds are beautiful and there are lots of great places to hang out that are under a roof, but have open walls. We saw many beautiful birds, some black squirrels, and even a sloth on the property. The breakfast was fantastic.... More

We had a wonderful time at Kokoro. The setting kept its promiss. Costa Rica and Arenal Volcano are for nature lovers and things are not the same as at home. Yes, the charming rooms were not well lit, but very comfortable. Everything was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Yes, there is high humidity which can lead to a... More
