Arenal Kioro is an absolutely beautiful hotel with a breathtaking view. I thought their pictures might be exxagerating, but the view from the rooms is simply amazing. My wife and I enjoyed sitting on our private patio or our in-room hottub admiring the view. The rooms are huge and have all the amenities that you would expect of a 5 star hotel. We also found the service to be outstanding and the grounds impeccable.
I only have two minor complaints about the hotel: 1) most of the exercise equipment in the gym was broken or rusted and 2) the food at the restaurant was OK, but not great and certainly not worth what they charged. Also, watch out for the "house special" $120 bottle of wine that they pitch you; everything else on the menu is ~$35 / bottle, so this came as a surprise on the bill. My mistake for not asking.
These two items aside, this is a tremendous hotel with a world class view. The price is a bit steep but worth every penny. I hope to be back someday!
