We stayed for 2 nights. The room was very nice. Love the large glass windows with sliding door. The bathroom was also very nice with a spacious shower. The room buildings are dispersed throughout the complex so there is complimentary transport to and from reception/pool etc if you wish.The gardens are very well maintained and there are a lot of...

The fact, all rooms face the main draw, Arenal Volcano, and you are overwhelmed with a beautiful garden setting, made our Arenal Manoa experience, wonderful. The rooms were spacious, clean, and I could have spent the whole stay, in the skylight lit bathroom. I enjoy my exercise routine, and found a space to be able to swim laps in the...

We stayed at the Manoa three nights and enjoyed it. It was fun of honeymooning couples, and I'm not surprised; it's secluded, you stay in private little bungalows, and there are a number of conveniently located activities. I wish there was a second restaurant on the premises for more food variety, but the restaurant they have is nice. It's fairly...

Spent 2 nights here at Manoa Hotel as part of a Caravan excursion. Rooms are lovely, tiled floors, spacious and clean. Bathroom huge, with skylight that keeps room bright and sunny. Somewhat surprised that there were no drawers for clothing, one small closet. Fortunately, in our case, we only stayed 2 nights, so it really became kind of a plus...

My husband and I stayed here in early May for our honeymoon. After much debate about what hotel to stay at, we finally chose this one. We drove ourselves and it was easy to find, just down a short dirt road (easily accessible without 4x4). Greeted with a welcome drink, which is great after a long drive. Our room was...

Our family of four stayed at Arenal Manoa for three days. Upon arrival the desk staff greeted us with a fresh tropical drink. We were quickly checked in and driven to our bungalow. Our "room" was more like a USA duplex. The bungalows are all strategically placed on a hillside for optimal view of the Arenal volcano. The rooms have...

We loved the individual buildings and the setting for this hotel was spectacular. The room was very large and quite comfortable. We had a great ourdoor seating area with a wonderful view of the volcano. just beautiful. My only complaint was that the room was missing some basics like a stand for the suitcases and although the room was large...

We stayed one evening here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff was friendly, the pool and hot tub overlooking the volcano were gorgeous. We also loved the large bathroom with a skylight in the room. It seems as though every room has a spectacular view. The complimentary breakfast served in the restaurant was bountiful and delicious. We would visit again!

Well positioned hotel with very good views of the volcano. The rooms were big and the beds were comfortable but it was easy to hear the people in the neighbouring room, which was disappointing. The food in the restaurant was good but don't go in to dinner too early otherwise you are with all the mainly American coach tour group!...

This was one of my favorites during our visit to Costa Rica. All rooms are spacious, private and overlook the volcano. Hot springs feed pool with swim up bar on lower level and another gorgeous pool w/bar on upper level. Meals were delicious and served in open air restaurant. Very clean.
