Kokoro is a beautiful resort with access to the hot springs right on premises. Our stay was very comfortable, the resort grounds were lush and beautiful, the breakfast was delicious with a variety of options. Our plans got changed and the staff were very accommodating. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommend the place.

I give this hotel a 2 only because the staff was nice and the breakfast was decent. The room is just a room. If you want a hotel that makes you want to stay active all day not making you feel like you need or really want to go back to your room then this is the hotel for you....

The hotel needs renovation, but all in all we enjoyed it and the price reflects the fact that the hotel is oldish. Breakfast was not that great, but coffee was good. Rooms are large, but old, however beds were comfortable. It is a nice place for 2-3 days.

The hotel was great. The rooms were clean and large, and the breakfast was delicious. The staff were helpful and friendly and helped our group book excursions that made our stay wonderful. We didn't make use of many of the facilities as we were always out on the go.

The grounds were very nice, they had a hiking trail that we enjoyed. Large pool and pool deck to take in the wildlife (parrots flew right over us as...

Our arrival at Kokoro, after a drive from San Jose, was met by the courteous and friendly staff at reception that readily offered an early check-in. Kokoro is a little oasis off the main road in La Fortuna that offers individual bungalows overlooking Arenal Volcano. After the variety of outdoor activities offered in the La Fortuna area, you need to...

Enjoyed our stay. There was a nice hiking trail in the forest inside the property. The property was spacious where I could walk around before everyone was awake. Pool was clean, Had a yoga area with hammocks also. Thermal pool looked gross. Coffee, tea & water in the outdoor lobby all day. Breakfast was nice. Staff friendly. Rooms were clean....

We are a family of 5 with 3 teens and this jungle hut was perfect for our family. Very clean, not extravagant, but very nice....well manicured and beautiful landscape with tropical feel and Arenal Volcano visible from many locations on the property. Breakfast inclusion daily was great! Lunch & dinner are better off the property. Hot springs on the property...

I thought I wrote this review when we stayed here last April but I guess it didn't post. We really liked it here and loved our little cabin, it was perfect! Our's was small-ish, like basically just a bed and a couple chairs and bathroom but it was very open. It had a mini-fridge as well which was nice because...
