The Royal Corin Thermal Water Spa & Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We stayed at the Royal Corin for 3 nights last week. Everything exceeded our expectations. The view of the volcano is amazing, staff is friendly and efficient, food is excellent (we did not find any restaurants in town with better food), room clean and spacious and the pools are great. Location is perfect...only a few minutes into town and easy drive to the volcano, hanging bridges and waterfalls. Would stay here again and highly recommend it.

We stayed here for a couple nights on our honeymoon...when i imagined my honeymoon I thought of a breathtaking tropical place, where we were welcomed with hospitality- and that is exactly what Hotel Corin provided. We were welcomed with tropical drinks, the nicest room I have ever been in, with privacy and a stunning view. They also brought us a special complementary gift for our honeymoon which was a nice touch. The bed was extremly comfortable, staff extra friendly, spoke great English, helpful, and always cleaning the hotel.

We traveled to Cost Rica Dec 2013 for our 25th,we rented a car and decided to drive around the east coast area and the Arenal volcano area....we stayed 3 nights in the Arenal area,and chose to stay at Hotel Royal Corin as our first night, sort of a last minute decision ,but we were very pleased to have stayed here for our first night,it far passed all our expectations,the hot springs pools were nice and a very relaxing area,all the staff were amazing,and truly cared to make our stay exceptional,loved the diner we had that night out on the outdoor patio,out waiter made it our best meal in Costa Rica (exceptional service).....the breakfast had a great assortment to choose from,with a lot of fresh fruit...the room was large and clean,nice to have a turn down service with the chocolates...we will return again one day...loved it,,,,didnt have a chance to try the spa as we only had 1 night

Room Tip: enjoy diner out on the patio,nice atmosphere...you will love it

Just got back from a visit to Costa Rica. Hotel Royal Corin is very nice! I would definitely stay there again. We stayed in a king suite and it is worth it! The pool area is very nice as well. All staff is very helpful.

We had a 4 day stay in Hotel Royal Corin and we are very happy with our choice. Room was large, well designed and very comfortable. Bathroom was very modern. In addition we had an amazing view to the Arenal vulcano from our balcony.
Service at the hotel was always very nice and helpful. We also remain very happy with our breakfast. It could be more varied, but it is not a must.
Finally the pool area with the pool bar are awesome, if you look for relaxing.

We will definitely recommend Hotel Royal Corin.

We had a great stay at Royal Corin. The rooms were great and the staff was very helpful. The only hangup was that our room was not ready at 2 pm at check in time and we had to wait a little bit, but the room was definitely worth it. Be sure to try a pina colada at the wet bar! Best pina coladas we've ever had.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies facing the volcano are beautiful!

Pros: All rooms appear to have great volcano views and balconies. Our room was comfortably large, very clean, and had an ultra-modern bathroom. Bed was very comfortable and A/C was quiet.

Cons: Charmless, "international style" modern building with an uninviting lobby. Miserable buffet-style breakfast which never varied over the course of our 4-day stay. Two mediocre lunches ensured that we went outside every night for dinner, a US$15 round trip to/from town. Grounds and landscaping were minimal. The pools dominated the outdoor area; there was no significant garden or natural shade option.

We booked only one of our activities through the hotel - a nocturnal rainforest walk. This was $71 or $74 each (can't remember exactly) for a roughly 2-hour private guided tour in an eco-reserve. The guide was knowlegable and enthusiastic, and we got great frog photos, but the tour was over-priced. I don't know if this was due to the hotel's mark-up or not, but regardless, I think they should consider negotiating couples/family rates for this activity.

Neutral: Geothermal pools were 102 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit. This was nice for a while, but a cooler temperature option would have been welcome.

Dear Guest:

We regret that our hotel has not fully complied with your expectations as if it has done with the majority of our customers.
