“Wow! Beautiful rooms, beautiful grounds, incredible view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

My husband and I stayed here for 2 days at the end of our wedding/honeymoon trip to Costa Rica.

We were stunned by how incredible our room was! It was huge, wonderfully decorated, had a jacuzzi, and above all we had the best view of the volcano in the area! We were fortunate to have seen the volcano in its entirety the first morning of our stay, but indeed it was covered by clouds on the day we left. We loved the privacy that was offered (we never saw more than a handful of people at any time), the excellent service (they have great suggestions for activities and restaurants), and the location (convenient access to everything in the area, but removed from the main road to allow for a quieter setting)

We would highly recommend this hotel to any of our friends!

Room Tip: Each building has 4 villas (2 on top, 2 on bottom). Although all the rooms are huge and have unobstr...

This place is very close to the volcan a bit outside of La Fortuna. The room was very large and included a private jacuzzi. While we have not seen the top of the volcano due to clouds - we had a fantastic view from our suite. I enjoyed the hot springs while my wife was in the spa and we both had a good time. While the service in the restaurant was excellent and the wine offering was very good, we were not so enthusiastic about the food served for dinner which was more average. But as we were in this place for only two nights we were too lazy to take a taxi to La Fortuna in the evening to look for something better.

Room Tip: All suites have the same view on the volcano and noise is no problem at all.

The location is spectacular, but all the time we were are the Arenal Kioro we never once saw the volcano: apparently it remains covered in cloud most days of the year. You might get lucky. If not, then just enjoy the huge rooms, comfortable amenities (try to find time for the spa and pool, which we didn't) and luxuriant gardens. Our only complaint about the room was that it was a bit too open-plan, with no door on the toilet, for example, so you might feel you need more privacy. The restaurant provided a splendid breakfast spread, but take care: the humid conditions of the rainforest make the tiled floor slippery.

My husband and I recently spent 4 days at Arenal Kioro for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time! The staff was so welcoming and helpful. They assisted us in getting our luggage (that came in a day later), helped us to book activities, and answered all of our questions about the area. Our room (#203) was spacious, clean, and had an incredible view of the volcano. The pool and hot springs were lovely as well. The complimentary breakfast was always delicious. You will not regret a stay at Kioro!

This hotel was definitely a step up from our usual level of hotel. Lovely setting. Incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. Lots of quiet, solitude and beautiful scenery. The volcano out our windows, and the night sky from the outdoor heated pools was definitely something to write home about. The towel animals were soooooo cute! We rate the value and spa as average because we paid in a package and did not get a chance to visit the spa, so we really have no opinion on those parts of the review.

We just spent 3 days at Arenal Kioro with friends. The accomodation were good with excellent views of the Volcano, beautiful gardens and nice hot spring pools. This is a good launching off point for a number of adventures. We did rafting, repelling and a jungle walk in the National Park at the Volcano. The staff was very accomodating and the room was one of the largest I've stayed in with a whirlpool in the room. The hotel is starting to show its age and the room furniture could use some touchups. The gym equipment was also dated and not all functioning.
