Hotel Kokoro Arenal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2011

My wife and I stayed at Kokoro Arenal for 3 nights. The rooms are beautiful, quiet and the King size Beds very comfortable. This place is operated by a charming family. They are very welcoming and helpful for tourist information and tours in the area.
Having Breakfast with the surrounding gardens is magnificent.
This place is perfect to see the Volcano near by. Unfortunately, we never saw the volcano during our stay. It was totally covered in clouds for 3 days. This we were told happens sometimes. Our friends who stayed at Kokoro Arenal on year before during the same period say the view is phenomenal ;-)
We can't think of a better place to stay in Arenal area.

Room Tip: No need to go for the suites. The rooms with king Beds are great.

Lovely hotel with the sweetest employees. They arranged tours and transportation with extreme professionalism and efficency. The bungalows, pools, hot spring and grounds were extremely clean and quiet. The resturant had wonderful food, and the employees were very accomdating toward my extremely picky child. Great location outside of La Fortuna, and very close to Aernal Volcano Park.

My fiance and I stayed at the Kokoro for 3 nights, and we had a very pleasant stay. The grounds were very beautiful and we had an excellent view of the volcano. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was so nice having the hot springs at the hotel. We used them every night we were there. Overall, we found it to be a really great value. I rated the "cleanliness" a little less, because they did not clean our room one of the nights.

My husband and I stayed at Kokoro on our honeymoon. It was one of the first places we stayed and one of our favorites. The views to the volcano are beautiful and the lush gardens give the place a very special feel. Our cabin was perfect and felt like a bit of paradise. We loved waking up to the view of the volcano and then having breakfast in the lovely outdoor dining area. They have hot springs on the premises and these were incredible. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We were very sad to leave and wish we could have stayed longer!

Kokoro was the first stops on my trip with Costa Rica with a group of friends. Once we got there we were amazed by the beauty of the place, not only the installations which are lovely, but also the amazing view of the volcano. This is a place that it's surrounded by nature, with its own hot springs and the nicest people you can find. There nothing else to look around, this is the place to stay, and believe me when I say that you will want to stay longer.
Go there, enjoy the beautiful cabins, have a nice breakfast with homemade food and take a nice and relaxing bath at the hot springs.

my friend and I were taken here by our local friends after being kicked out of overbooked flight back to NY to spend the extra night in Costa Rica. This trip turned out to be an amazing getaway.

The setting of Kokoro is absolutely charming - we stayed in private wooden lodge that is located in an exotic garden filled with plants and tropical flowers. In the morning, I was pleasantly surprised by an amazing view of volcano.

My highlight at kokoro was natural hotspring, also located outdoor. The water wasn't too hot and we could stay there for hours while chatting and enjoying stars.

I would have loved to stay here longer !!!
