Hotel Kokoro was really nice to stay at. The staff were all very friendly and very willing to help with anything we needed. They booked all our excursions and taxis for us and paid for it so we just had one bill at the end. The grounds were BEAUTIFUL. There was a little forest trail there that was really cool. The room itself was average but it smelled really badly of mildew.

Don't be fooled at how the cabin looks small from the outside. As soon as you walk inside, you'll be surprised at how big and spacious its interior. The ceiling is also high. It has one king size and a twin size bed with big rustic closet, dresser, side table and a small table with chairs. This is a beautiful resort nestled in the forest. You'll hear the sounds of nature especially in the evening. The gardens are amazing, the pool is clean, the reception and restaurant are open concept. The staff are also amazing - very friendly. I also had the chance to chat with the owners and they're very much down to earth people. My 14 year old son loved it here. We've stayed in cabins in Alberta/BC and Kokoro is incomparable. Yes, it is 7 km from La Fortuna town, and you'll need a taxi to get there. But how else can you enjoy the beauty of nature surrounding you? And also, regardless of whether the restaurant is open for lunch or dinner, people will tend to go to the town anyway. At night, I would go for a walk around the property with my flashlight and there is a security guarding the facility. I've stayed in a 5* hotel while in Costa Rica, but the best staff I've ever encountered are in Hotel Kokoro.

Cabins are well designed and had the feel of being in the forest. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Tons of birds around, breakfast was delicious - we also had dinner at their restaurant and it was great! Have to cab it everywhere, but we had tours booked that picked up and dropped off at the hotel. Reception can call for transportation too, so no issues. Had fun conversations with the entire family that owned the place. Great experience and looking forward to coming back!

We stayed here for 2 nights and hoping for more. If only we knew how amazing this place, we would've stayed longer! The rustic cabin and location were perfect getaway from city bustling lifestyle. We needed so badly coming from heavily tourist spot playa tamarindo. The overall service was excellent! They kindly helped & solved our excursion problems. Breakfast was great as well! Forget those continental terrible breakfast from tamarindo. We would love to come back & stay longer next time.

In January 2014 we stayed for two nights at this delightful lodge. Their beautifully landscaped grounds overlook the Arenal Volcano. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The owner Philipe made us a delicious dinner in their lovely open air dining room on our first night there. The cabins are well appointed and private.
