Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 November 2013

After a disastrous start to our holiday( wettest month in 50 years) and a crap all inclusive hotel full of wet/ complaining Brits we decided to rent a jeep and have a safari expedition.

Drove up the Arenal volcano and found this hotel so treated ourselves to 2 nights of luxury.

Amazing hotel, great rooms with full size jacuzzi overlooking the volcano..... Magical!!
The sounds if howler monkeys and a view like something out of Jurassic park of the rain forest.

Great device and lovely food ; had some treatments in the spa and chilled out.
The hot springs were worth a visit and we did a horse ride down to the huge waterfall and then did some zip lines!!
A great adventure and yes would defo go back again.

We stayed one night in arenal kioro hotel, it was like being in heaven, the rooms were big and furnished with taste, the bed was comfy and cuddling, every room has a jacuzzi and that was magic too. All rooms look out on the vulcano, but unfortunately the weather wasn't good and we didn't get to see it!!! But our consolation was the hot springs pools, beautiful and so relaxing I could of stayed there forever, immersed in a beautiful Eden garden, with hummingbirds flying over your head while you bathe, it's just magical and we only paid 200 dollars a night with a superb buffet breakfast and waiters and staff really attentive to every need. Highly recommended!!!

Dear guest,

Thank you for choosing and giving us the chance to give you the vacations you deserve. It is sad that we can't control the weather so that you can enjoy one of earth's magnificent cretinos. However it makes us feel glad that our staff attended you the way you reserve to be attended. Hope to see you back again someday.

Best Regards.

Just left Arenal Kioro after 3 lovely nights. Spectacular views from anywhere on the property. The rooms are spacious and immaculate. Though you can tell that the hotel was built in the 70's it has been updated, and modernized. The walls are paper thin and you can hear your neighbor think. The beds were not as comfortable as others, but good enough to get in an afternoon nap with the doors open listening to the rain. The food at the main restaurant is good, but priced like it is excellent . The hamburgers and fry's at the pool are great. $25 with a drink. The grounds are amazing, the variety of plants and flowers had me wearing out battery's on my camera. Humming birds everywhere.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have better views

The grounds of Kioro are spectacular! Bird lovers paradise and plant admirers dream! The night time butterfly's and animal sounds made the trip so exotic.
The breakfast buffet is wonderful. Everything you could desire in one spot. The lunch at the pool was delicious. The evening meals were pricy and average. The dining room is beautiful, comfortable and the staff is attentive.
The rooms have large jacuzzi tubs,large showers,sitting rooms and beds that face the amazing view of Arenal volcano.
The rainy season was spectacular. It seemed to only rain at night.
Loved this experience!

Loved this hotel. The staff cannot do enough to help you with whatever query you may have. The views of the volcano from the rooms are just breathtaking. There is a series of hot spring pools on site that are great. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

My wife and I and friends stayed here as part of a package tour through Costa Rica...when we saw our rooms all we could say was "Wow!" The room itself is huge...very high ceilings, spacious, more of a suite than a room. And then the view...a full wall of windows and glass doors look directly at the Arenal Volcano without any obstructions or other buildings in your view...amazing! The food was good, plus you had the same view from the dining room of the volcano. The pool area and hot springs are great for relaxation. One low mark I would give the Arenal Kioro is the gym/game room building...seemed like more of an afterthought and obviously not used very much by anyone...but most are probably soaking in the pool, hot springs, or their own personal full sized hot tub that is in every room! Splurge a little and stay here if you have the option!

Room Tip: Rooms in building 10 are the furthest away from the main building & pool area...bring a flashlig...
