“Amazing time in paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Spacious rooms with outstanding view of the Volcano. Amazing hot springs in a beautiful property. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Adrianna helped us follow up on tour activities and transportation. Breakfast was very good, dinner was ok but a bit pricy. If you don't have a car, there is only one restaurant close by and a better option than eating at the hotel.
Overall, we had a great time.

The staff was amazing as prior to the trip, Aurora Solano helped me pick the ideal room location. When we got to the hotel, we were given a great welcome drink. Along with the drink, we were given some perks that the hotel offered. Wilmer drove us to our room and handled all of our luggage. He even found me a new room clock as the one in the room wasn't working properly. The hot tub in the room and volcano view were amazing. All of the staff in the restaurant were awesome. On a clear morning during breakfast, the staff couldn't stop taking pictures of us with the volcano in the background. The cleaning staff was superb as we came back from an excursion filthy and they offered to clean our clothes for free and did a great job. Before we checked out, I insisted on meeting Aurora as my family wanted to thank her for making us feel as part of the Arenal Kioro family. Pura vida amigos as we would love to stay there again.
Saludos,
Jack and family from south Florida

The hotel room was very large. The view was amazing. I can't imagine ever leaving the room if the volcano was active. The thermal springs were great. The hotel staff was also very pleasant. We had a great stay at the Arenal Kioro Hotel.

Room Tip: It appears that all rooms have amazing views. We were located in building 10 which was further from...

Checking in was straightforward.

We could see some parts of Aernal Volcano from our room, unfortunately misty weather did not allow us to see summit.

Room was spacious and we had an indoor jacuzzi. It was disappointing not to have an umbrella in room given it rained regularly; also most of property requires you to walk outdoors.

Breakfast was average. The floors in the restaurant were slippery due to humidity/mist.

The pool was nice and warm - hot springs in a waterfall like format.

Hotel had a billiard table as a form of entertainment; the table and cue sticks were worn down.

The hotel was located about 10 minutes from main city by car.

Room Tip: Make sure rooms have umbrella so you dont get wet when you leave room!

Beautiful hotel, great staff and location with the most amazing view fo the Arenal Volcano. The landscaping is awesome and the hot springs were great.

Comfortable spacious rooms, nice bathrooms and a jacuzzi inside.

I would just take a good look into the cleanliness of the restaurant area, especially the walls, tables and chairs.

This hotel is really high up on the hillside, you cannot hear any traffic and have a completely unobstructed view of the volcano. The staff is very friendly and will book any kind of tour or reservations you could possibly want. I cannot stress enough how great every single tour provider they booked us was. It is true that there are probably hotter hot springs BUT all the other resorts that we saw open their hot springs to everyone so there are literally bus loads of people off loading into the resort. The Kioro's hot springs were completely private to hotel guests, were never crowded, were hot enough, and had an incredible view. We saw wild toucans and heard Howler Monkeys from our private balcony. It is a very small intimate resort with rooms consisting of individual villas that house 4 rooms each. Very quiet! The spa was also fantastic.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are probably the best
