Visited with family and lucky to have found this gem near Arenal Volcano. Deeply immersed in the authentic wildlife that Costa Rica has to offer, Kokoro was rich in both fauna and flora... how nice it is to hear the night sounds while soaking in the hot springs and to see the songbirds flying about while eating a tasty fruit plate on the breakfast patio. There is also a relaxing community pool, hammock, and spa area for more opportunities to completely de-stress.
The rooms were spacious and uniquely decorated. Beds were comfy and each place was equipped with a patio outlooking a wonderful view of the volcano. We were able to get great pictures of some interesting looking flowers and of a brilliant toucan calling for its mate. And of the volcano of course, bold and majestic, smoking away every so often.
The service was nothing short of outstanding. Felico, David, and the rest of the staff really went out of their way to make the experience the best it could be. Shared a beer, answered our many questions about the Costa Rican culture, and recommended the best places to explore for the remainder of our trip... everyone was genuinely friendly and happy to be there.
Definitely one of the best highlights on our CR trip.. a true breath of fresh air.
