“Excellent Hotel with an Amazing View”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Royal Corin was a great hotel! The rooms and pool had an amazing view of the volcano. Everything was clean and comfortable, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Herman, at the front desk, was outstanding! The cab ride into the city center cost anywhere from $7-$10. We went in November (raining season), so we got a great deal on the hotel. Either way, we would definitely recommend it!

We came to the royal Corin for our honeymoon and we were pleasantly surprised. The photos don't do this place justice! The hot springs are truly amazing here and each one tucked away from the others. There is so much privacy and peace here. It's a great place to relax and unwind. Definitely a couples resort, not loud or overcrowded. The spa is really nice and they let you use the facilities all day when getting a treatment. Every morning they had a huge Costa Rican breakfast that was included with our stay which made it really convenient for us. Close to town and different activities like hiking and zip lining.The staff was really helpful and friendly. We would definitely return to the hotel Corin!

Great Hotel. All Rooms face Arenal Volcano. Large comfortable rooms Internet in rooms. Good breakfast included Close to all the area attractions. Large pool with swim up bar heated to 90 degrees Menu in dining room looked good although I did not eat at hotel.

Room Tip: Higher Floors equate to a better view

The view is was absolutely amazing and the rooms are luxurious! It was very safe and inclusive for a solo traveler and greatly situated. The restaurants were good (slightly overpriced but it's part of the hotel atmosphere) and very clean overall. Service was on the slower end (it was low season) and the staff was a little less eager than one would expect from such a high end hotel. The help that was offered was priceless - my tour got cancelled and the hotel helped me find a local tour which was even better!
I highly recommend it and hope to return soon. Would say affordable luxury and one of the best in the area.

Room Tip: Definitely get the room facing the volcano! Beautiful view - spectacular really! It makes 80% of you...

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the luxurious Hotel Royal Corin. We were greeted at reception with delicious drinks and everything ready for check-in. We stayed in room 403 and had an awesome view of Arenal Volcano and the pool area. Honestly, every room at this hotel has a great view of the volcano. Relaxing in their mineral pools is a MUST. All the staff we interacted with were friendly and always willing to help answer questions. The front desk did a fantastic job of helping us book tours and needed transportation. The hotel is only a $7 cab ride from downtown La Fortuna. Excellent location!

Hotel Royal Corin was wonderful. The service was great and the rooms were very nice and clean. I loved the view and also the pools and hotel bars. The service was wonderful as well. It was a great hotel to stay at for our honeymoon. Everything below was wonderful except we did not use the fitness center so unsure. The spa was great as well.

My husband and I just returned from Costa Rica and LOVED our stay at the Royal Corin.
The hotel itself is beautiful. Not your typical nature lodge, it is high-styled properties with a European feel. It is really impressive aesthetically from the public areas, to the spa and the rooms are in class by themselves in Costa Rica. Very elegant decor, incredible interior finishes.
Our room was roomy and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and larger-than-king-sized.
All rooms have an excellent view of the volcano. The bathrooms are roomy with modern fixtures.
The natural hot-pools and tubs are incredible, though not as large as Tabacon or Baldi, they are everything we needed and then some, simply beautiful and without the crowds of overweight bikini-clad tourists. Really a touch of class compared to the others, including a very nice swim-up bar.

And the service exceeded our expectations in every regard. Beyond prompt service for room service requests, a front-desk staff that was beyond reproach, and not an unfriendly or smug individual on the entire staff.

My husband and I HIGHLY recommend this hotel.
