This hotel was a gorgeous surprise. The grounds are lush with tropical plants and flowers and the open reception area is the first of many lovely areas to explore. I loved my one room cabin with it's porch from which I enjoyed the view at the foot of the Arenal Volcano. The room was large and comfortable with a good-sized bathroom. I enjoyed the open air dining room and even got pictures of a bird stealing food from an empty table. The owner generously prepared a special lunch of Chinese Dumplings for me after I had mentioned that I missed vegetables and meat in my Costa Rican meals. All the staff are professional and friendly. The hotel needs some minor updating and that is scheduled to be done in September. I would highly recommend Kokoro Hotel to anyone wishing to enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica in a relaxing, friendly, beautiful place.
