We stayed in five different hotels during our trip to Costa Rica, including a very disappointing 5 star, and we can confidently say that this hotel was the best by a long way. Spacious rooms, extremely comfortable beds, excellent bathrooms and all the facilities that one needs in a hotel. The gardens and surrounding areas are beautifully kept and managed, providing great opportunities for wildlife watching or just relaxing in beautiful surroundings. The restaurant is very well designed and overlooks the treetops and a lake, and there is an added pleasure to be eating whilst being so close to the local natural beauty of this area. We highly recommend this lovely hotel.

Stayed here as part of a Riviera Travel tour of Costa Rica. Everything about the place was just brilliant, and we all wished we could have stayed longer. The food was brilliant, the little lodges were fantastic, and the staff were lovely and very helpful.

The Manoa exceeded our expectations Our Junior suite was exceptional, it was an end unit overlooking a beautiful garden, so very peaceful and serene, and was directly facing the Volcano Breakfast had an amazing choice of food Including many healthy options The view from the terrace of the restaurant impressed each day, with wildlife all around, including Toucans, Iguanas, and Egrets all visible from the tables We also ate at the restaurant twice for evening meals which we also enjoyed We never expected to see such fauna and flora , we walked everywhere within the grounds and armed with binoculars we saw so much, luckily we saw the illusive Crocodile and the Cayman, and too many species of birds to list , all around us, if you take time to look We want to highlight the exceptional service we received from the whole team of staff, nothing was too much trouble, definitely 5 star rating for us Also a special mention and thanks to Julio the ever smiling waiter at breakfast, and Yorleny who was so efficient and friendly in reception We stayed for 5 nights and would definitely recommend the Manoa

This place was just perfect. We almost never stay at resorts and I was so glad we chose to stay here for a couple of nights. It was magical. We splurged on a spa suite and it was worth every penny. The view of the volcano from our room was awesome. The spa tun was fantastic although it took us quite a while to fill it all the way up due to hot water sporadically cooling during the process. But it was worth the wait. Pura vida! The bed was super comfy too. I had the best hot stone massage of my life from Marta at the spa. The atmosphere there is really special. Breakfast was fantastic! I loved that they had a "healthy station" where you could make a salad to have with your breakfast. And don't miss out on the cheese that's made there, it's so good! The customer service is over the top from check in to check out and everything in between. And even though this was a splurge for us, I thought it was really reasonably priced. Can't say enough good things and hope to come back some time.

Nice stay! The free included breakfast is amazing, everything was clean and well taken care of. The rooms were nice, and the service was good. Again, the breakfast was the best part, variety, freshness, taste, etc. I'm sure all their food is good, but prices were a bit expensive for lunch, dinner and snacks, we went out of the hotel for food, plenty of options available in La Fortuna.

Really enjoyed three nights here: Pros Staff are amazing - all of them really can’t do enough to help you Room was nice, even if a bit dated. Nice view of the volcano Grounds are beautiful and clearly they take a bit of care of the aesthetic - lovely and very safe Cons Breakfast buffet was poor quality, hot options decidedly average and fresh offering was uninspired We didn’t eat in restaurants, put off by breakfast. One drink in the bar, higher price than bars in town and a banana daiquiri was way too sweet when served We took a cab into town each night to eat and have a beer - about 7-8 minutes and $15 each way, all perfectly safe We’d happily use this property again when next here. 7/10

We stayed 3 nights in the Arenal Manoa. I wish we could have stayed more. The rooms exactly as on line maybe better. The breakfast was delicious. The pools and Hot springs clean and wonderful. The entire property was sparkling clean. I would definitely love to return and spend more time.

Beautiful hotel close to La Fortuna. Staff were very efficient, helpful and friendly. On arriving at our room the view of the volcano in full sun with no cloud was just amazing. Of course it isn't usually so visible. The room was cool and clean and very relaxing. My only comment would be that the beds were not actually very comfortable - they were rather hard and the cocktails were a little lacking in 'punch'. Get a room on the far side of the resort as that's where the mountain view's are best.

This hotel goes above and with their service! We celebrated at birthday in the restaurant and a hand-written note, small gift and balloons were waiting in the room when we got back. Their attention to detail is outstanding! The food is great, atmosphere is very relaxing and grounds are beautiful! It’s nice to have two options for the pools. Everything is very clean and well kept.
