“Beware of surprise fees”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

this is a beautiful hotel situated just below the Arenal Volcano. Upon check-in we were advised that there was continental complementary breakfast in the morning, and after driving 3+ that morning, we were exhausted and hungry, and happy it was still before 10am for the complementary breakfast. When we finished we were shocked when brought a bill for $35 - when we inquired were told breakfast would be complementary the following day, not today. The breakfast was good, but i wouldn't have spent that much on it, we would have preferred go into town for a local breakfast of $4 so I'm disappointed no one advised us of the fee. Not the person we checked in with (when i remarked that it was early enough to get the breakfast) or when the person seated us and when we told he our hotel room and said checked in today didnt mention anything about a fee, or the waiter when he asked when we arrived. Since we were only spending the extra money to be here for our honeymoon and already spending a lot for that, the extra $35 pinch was painful. Other that that, beautiful place.

Dear Jaime M:

Usually when we have an early check in (before 10 am), breakfast is not included. This is a complementary service provide upon the first night stay. The front desk staff always advised about this charge during the process of check in when we have early check in´s. Unfortunately we did not have your complaint during the moment of the charge or during the check out process to make at least a discount for this charge.

Best Regards

Food was very good. Michael the waiter is excellent. Very nice. Hotel is beautiful. Staff is super helpful. Amazing view. Bathroom was spotless. Bed is comfy but pillows are uncomfortable. Shower is really cool. Balcony was nice at nighttime to see the volcano. Spa was incredible. We got the 70 minute hot stone massage definitely recommend it. Make the trip into the town. It's definitely worth it. Pool was a little hot for me but the bar was great. Try the ABC drink. It's amazing!! Zip lining, hanging bridges, ATV, safari rafting were definitely worth the money!!

Wonderful Hotel, the best in the La Fortuna / Arenal Area!!! The hotel was beautiful with great views of the Volcano. Everything was immaculate. The rooms were big and modern, the restaurant was fabulous, and the pool and hot springs were perfect. By far the best place to stay!

Room Tip: All rooms face the volocano, but request the 3rd or 4th floors for the best views.

My husband and i stayed at the Hotel Royal Corin for 2 nights this month. We were greeted with a welcome fruit drink from Esteban. The room was beautiful with a wonderful view of the Arenal Volcano and gorgeous pool that was lovely to look at in the evening. It was quiet and relaxing. At night the area "came to life". The sounds of the wildlife at night i shall never forget. It was pleasureable to wake up to the sounds of birds. The grounds of the hotel were immaculate. The staff were very helpful to assist in arranging excusions and whatever we needed. The food was tasty and visually appealing. Extensive selection of food at breakfast. Dinner was exceptional.
The duck dish we had was great. Portions were generous . Staff always attentive , topping off the coffee often. Esteban and Daniel were two staff members that we had been in contact with. They were attentive, courteous, and genuinely friendly. We definately would stay there again. It was a pleasure.

Awesome place! All the rooms have the Arenal Volcano view. Great view! The pool area is amazing, hot springs, jacuzzi, steam room are great to spend a relaxing time. The rooms?.. Wow! I was with my boyfriend in the master suit and it is beautiful, everything with a exquisite decoration!
Highly recommended!!

We just stayed at the Royal Corin for two nites and we highly recommend it. The front desk spoke fluent English and were very friendly and helpful. We waited till we got there to book our excursions and they did everything for us. The room was really nice and the bed was super comfortable. We slept with the screen door to the balcony open and had such a nice breeze accompanied by the sound of their hot springs fountains. The shower head was waterfall style which I became slightly obsessed with. The resort is a bit quieter so if you are looking for a resort to party at this is probably not your place.. But if you are looking for a quiet place to de-stress from your busy world, this is your place.
