Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa

A wonderful place to stay with a beautiful view of the volcano. We stayed in 300 building. Room is large with a jacuzzi. Close to the dining area and reception.
Hotel has their own private hot springs and was very pleasant to soak in. Got a free facial as well.
Wilmer( at the reception) was great. He even walked us to a good restaurant in La Fortune town after we took a bus from the hotel ($2 per person).
Breakfast was good but dinner had a very few choices (we are vegetarian ).

I have stayed in some of the all over the world. But, the bar has just been set higher. Impeccable service, great food in the stunning mountain tropical garden. The private hot springs are in the world of their own. Every room has a view that is simply stunning. If you are looking of for the best, you have found it!

We read on Trip Advisor to request a high numbered building and top floor room, so we did - and it was amazing. Building 1200 is the furthest from the reception, has the greatest privacy and quiet, and has no other buildings between itself and the forest. We stayed in 1204. 1202 would have even more privacy and on the top floor. Arrived after dark and woke up with the dawn to birdsongs and a surreal view from bed through floor to ceiling glass, wall to wall, of the forest with the volcano very slowly and gradually emerging from fog and clouds. Amazing like out of a movie scene. Just could not get over the absolute beauty of it and nothing to spoil the view. Saw a peccary, and more birds than we could count. The grounds are very nice and the staff is great. Breakfast is best if you are up early, otherwise some of the food begins to stale or overcook while the buffet is out. Dinner was good but not fantastic. Tried one night to walk to the nearest outside restaurant and realized how trapped you can be at Kioro without your own car rental. Plenty to do in the area and the guides/events will pick you up at the hotel. Recommend the hanging bridges tour and zip lining. We saw a red and blue poisonous dart frog, motmots, toucans, spider and howler monkeys on the hanging bridges tour (and many other birds), but were told that we had a good day in comparison to others. One reason possibly being the low traffic that day and we were alone with our guide. Noisy crowds will scare away larger wildlife.
No issues with the service or room at Arenal Kioro at all. I read that the hot springs were not really hot but disagree. The top most pool is hot and the pools below quickly get cooler, but since there were hardly any people around, it was fine. If I wanted to sit in a hot spring, I could.

Room Tip: Get a top floor room for vaulted ceiling and if you want more privacy, request a higher numbered bui...

Arsenal Kioro is 10-15 min beyond La Fortuna. Perfect view of the volcano. Very large rooms with hot tub. Pleasant and helpful staff. Dining in house is good and breakfast exceptional.
The hot springs at Kioro is a nice addition, but definitely go to Tabacon or Springs Resort for their hot springs experience.
Zip line at Hotel Paradiso will put your nerves to the test. Mountain biking.... Give it a try.....Nature hike at the Arenal Observatory Lodge is worth the trip.
Enough to do to fill 3, maybe 4 days without any relaxation. Try the only Sushi restaurant in town one evening.
Special thank you to the Kioro Staff for mailing my Iphone chargers to my home in the US!
This hotel provides enough luxury at a good price point to make you happy

When the bellhop took us to our room, our mouths hit the floor. We stayed in a couples suite which was absolutely amazing! The room was extremely spacious and had the most perfect view of the volcano. The windows went from floor to ceiling which further pronounced the showcase of the volcano. We also had a large shower and hot tub in the room.

The grounds are gorgeous with beautiful flowers, trails, and hot springs. The spa also offered a terrific experience. We had two massages while there.

We enjoyed relaxing by the pool, eating great food, and enjoying cocktails.

The service was top notch and everyone really tried to accommodate. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: the couples suite is worth it

All rooms are spacious, include a jacuzzi hot tub, large shower/bath room, and a fabulous view of the Arenal Volcano. Super clean, good food, excellent service and great accommodations! We are very glad we spent some time in the rain forest, rather than just having an excursion from our next location. The hotel staff were outstanding and yet low key. The rooms also have a minibar with reasonable prices. Breakfast was included and very lovely, with fresh fruit, cheeses, juices and a great selection of other items, in addition to the made-at-your-request eggs and waffles, etc. It was a wonderfully laid back atmosphere and the hotel was into Green Tourism.
We did the canopy tour, zip lining, and had dinner at the Tabacon 5 star resort down the road. Because it was dark when we arrived for dinner, we went back using the Kioro's free shuttle, and toured their amazing grounds and hot springs.

Room Tip: To our knowledge, there are no bad rooms! All are facing the volcano, and with a view of the beautif...

We added a few days to a retreat in Manual Antonio . We are so pleased we extended our trip to include another area in the country. The La Fortuna area is amazing. The Kioro is fabulous. As other have mentioned the service was amazing. The services provided through the concierge were great. They use Green Vacations for tours. The groups are small , our river raft tour with Hector was really amazing and just 2 of us and Hector. Lots of animals to see. Real unique , great service , lovely landscaping, and the energy is real strong. The bath product were nice and they had always had umbrellas throughout the hotel. This is what you expect for a 5 star hotel. I can go on with all the nice features but what is also really important is the location . The view of the volcano is the best in the area. The Rain Forest is much nicer then the Rain Forest in Manual Antonio. Don't miss the Hanging Bridges tour it was the best. This was the Costa Rica I was looking for ...... Just the best part of our vacation. Check out the restaurant just outside the gate for great food.
