Honestly, i don't know where to begin. From beginning to end, we were made to feel SOO special:
We were greeted upon check-in with 2 fruity drinks.
Every room in this resort gets a great view of the volcano, plus the Hot Springs.
The Hot Springs on location were convenient and so pleasant to look at.
There are 5 outdoor jacuzzis for small groups to enjoy views of the volcano and a slice of privacy.
Complimentary breakfast was delicious and plentiful.
Nightly complimentary dessert was an unexpected but very welcomed surprise.
The hotel lobby will exchange money with you if you don't want to (or don't have time) to make the trek to the ATM/bank - rates are pretty comparable.
The Loto Spa was exquisite - I treated myself to the Agni Spa Package (Mud Wrap & 70min Hot Stone Massage). The entire experience was calming, relaxing, tranquil. I never felt rushed or like they just wanted to be done and out of there. My masseuse Sue was attentive, professional, firm in pressure, and all around swell. After the treatment, i was told they would bring me a treat, and a minute later, the wait staff brought over a plate of strawberries with liquid chocolate in addition to a pot of thinly sliced plums arranged in a shape of a rose with slices of strawberries in the center, on top of a bed of strawberry coulis and some whip cream. PLUS a glass of champagne. It was DIVINE (minus the 10-or-so Spanish Tour group that came to visit the Spa site and started snapping pictures of the spa resort, and of me, scarfing down the deliciousness). Would highly recommend anyone looking around La Fortuna to give Hotel Royal Corin a try and to also book yourself a spa appointment at Loto Spa and be ready for a slice of heaven on earth.
