Tge fact that yoh can look out every day at the dormant Arenal Volcano, and see it change with the clouds. Tge restaurant is an amazing place to view a wide variety of avian species, the resort is landscaped with many of the same plants you might see at the botanic garden. Hot springs are for relaxing your cares away, and the spa is just icing on tge cake. Palm hearts. The restaurant has an amazing palm heart salad that you absolutely have to try! Tours leave every day for a myriad of adventures. It is an amazing place to stay.

We stayed at Arenal Manoa on the month of february 2021, the Hotel is in pristine condition, rooms are comfortable, spacious and well maintained. Restaurant has a gorgeous view of Arenal Volcano. My only complaint is the thermal waters pool is a little small, specially in this pandemic days, however, this is not a big issue, they also have another normal water pool. Also, I was impressed with the pool bathrooms cleanliness, which is something that replicates along the whole hotel. In general, we enjoyed our vacation at this hotel, we will definitely have Manoa as an option to stay here again in the future.

Two over the top extras: a veranda with two rocking chairs with a brook babbling by (room 134) and a swim up bar in the thermal pool with a bartender that made huge mojitos that were the best I ever tasted. Don’t miss this place if you are going to La Fortuna.

Arenal Manoa Hotel exceeded our expectations! Our suite was in a villa located in a lush tropical setting that opened to magnificent views of the Arenal Volcano. The exotic bird life was incredible! We enjoyed the hot springs pool and ate delicious mushroom risotto at the pool bar. Our evenings were spent drinking wine on our patio watching birds (including the Toucans), monkeys, and sunsets. The Saca Restaurant at this resort deserves Michelin stars! The food was local, fresh, and delicious every time that we ate there. The staff was friendly and our room was clean and comfortable. I highly recommend adding this resort to your vacation agenda!
