We were fortunate enough to stay at Arenal Manoa Hotel in December, and enjoyed every moment. We had booked ahead for a trip to Tabacon Hotsprings, but think we could have easily foregone the experience. This hotel features a nice pool with natural hot spring water from the volcano, and one can view the volcano from the pool area.There was a swim up bar with an accomodating server who gladly served me a fresh cup of coffee in the afternoon instead of the normal libations. This pool area also features a hot tub covered by a gazebo during rain storms and a small wading pool. Our room had an unobstructed view of the volcano from our bed and deck. I laughed as my husband snapped pictures of the beautiful bathroom including a small flower garden in the center under a skylight and an open shower. Our maid took the time and effort to entertain us with towel displays of animals daily. Our room was also across from the restaurant.and the food was fresh and delicious at every meal, and unlike many resorts the prices were comparable to those at local restaurants in La Fortuna. Personalized omelets were available in the mornings. While the restaurant was next to another pool area, we could not tear ourselves from the hot spring pool to use it, eventhough it was quite a distance to walk. The staff was friendly and accomodating, making quick response for requests of transportation within the resort and for excursions. The landscaping is lush and birds plentiful. A hummingbird visited us every morning outside the open air restaurant.
