We stayed at 3 different hotels and always kept comparing it back to Hotel Royal Corin because nothing could have beat it in terms of EVERYTHING!!!
Room was a huge. King size bed - spacious and extremely comfortable. All the sheets and pillowtops were clean, and by clean i mean stain free (as compared to others). The bathroom was made for a king and queen. It had 3 different types of showers (up on ceiling like waterfall, one in front of you, and a hand held hose). It comes with equipped with shampoo, body wash, and conditioner. The rooms are eco-friendly, meaning once you insert your room card into the wall, it turns on all the electricity and AC; you take out room card, everything turns off.
The breakfast was the best food we had compared to the 3 others we stayed in. It had various of food and fruits each day, unlike others. Their lunch/dinner menu was okay - reasonably priced. Typical food you would eat at any restaurants in NYC.
They had a HUGE pool with a wet bar, and 3-4 steamed pools. Swim towels were there for you to take unlike other resorts where you had to sign out for them and return. Free WIFI througout the hotel - able to connect with my Verizon phone. They also had 2 computers downstairs.
Only downside is the confinement of the hotel, but that was the same for all the 4-5 star resorts in La Fortuna. All other hotels in La Fortuna, you needed a taxi or a car to get into town. If you wanted to live smack in the middle of town, then go live in a hostel or a dumpy motel/inn. In addition, all the hotels are equipped with their own security gate and guard, which made you feel safe. But La Fortuna itself was safe overall.
The staff were pleasant. They responded to emails quickly when I was planning it a month before the actual trip. All the tours and activities, as well w\as the transportation, were arranged perfectly. They were able to set up taxis for us from the airport and back.
Altogether, it was beyond EXCELLENT. With clean rooms, excellent service, fantastic views of Arenal Volcano and the swimming pool at night, beautiful design, and great food, we would definitely book our next vacation back here again for sure (unlike the other resort we stayed at in Tamarindo).
