We were part of a Gate 1tour (we chose the upgrade for hotels it was well worth it) from our bed there was a sliding patio door from which we could see the volcano. It was awesome. The hot springs were incredible at night and in the rain. Loved it. The happy hour 2 for one 1 continued at each... More

We spent three nights at this hotel and we have the best memories of our visit. The bungalows were very nice. I loved the walk-in garden shower with sky light. The view of the massive "in your face" volcano from our floor to ceiling window was killer. That volcano has a not-to-be-ignored presence. The tropical grounds frame the volcano from... More

I stayed for 3 nights on my own. It was out of season so the hotel was fairly quiet, I had the pools, bars and sun lounges almost to myself. Everything is very clean and well kept. The setting is stunning in lush green, flowers and waters and always a view to the volcano! It's about 10/15 min from la... More

We spend alot of time researching and chose this hotel very carefully. There was a good price on Expedia so we booked and paid in advance. On the evening of our arrival, after 5 hours flying and 4 hours driving, we unloaded the whole van and walked up to the check in desk. They had drinks waiting and towels. We... More

What a view – we woke up to see Arenal Volcano framed by our bedroom windows. Magnificent hot springs to ease the stiffness from the bumpy ride from Monteverde. Wonderful shuttle bus service and very friendly staff. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Lovely hot springs, great pool and bar. Our room had the most amazing view and was very clean. Good shuttle bus service, very friendly and kind staff who are more than willing to help with trips or anything else. Really nice dining room - watch humming birds while you eat.

My husband and I booked a Groupon Getaway and Manoa was our first stop. We immediately fell in love with the location, the hotel, and its staff. Neither of us speak Spanish very well, but the staff was very welcoming and helped us with everything-- including calling our travel agency in the US to find out what time our transfer... More

Our family of 3 stayed in room 240, with double beds, spacious, and very comfort. Outside the window/patio was a beautiful view of the Arenal Volcano. The staffs here are courtesy and friendly. Especially, Liz and Andres at the front desk really went out of their way to find a driver who can deliver our camera's battery and charger which... More
