We stayed at the Arunal Kioro for three nights, ample opportunity to sample the local activities. Our room was very well-appointed, beautiful high windows and an in-room hot tub with the same view. The tub has great, also no chlorine odor at all. The food was very good, though not exceptional, the service was excellent. Buffet breakfast was included. Good...

The Kioro is most probably one of the best hotels in the Arenal Volcano neighborhood. Practical is truly what describes it better. It is close to town, only 15 minutes away, and the drive at night is OK as this part of the road is well paved i.e. no potholes. The hot springs is a 5 minutes complementary drive from...

It is a unique experience to wake up to a volcano view. The service at this hotel was great, but the views and the hot springs were the highlight of my stay. All rooms are located well, but some have a little longer walk to get to the lobby area. The rooms are much larger than most hotels and are...

Fabulous accommodations with a view of the Arenal Volcano from your room! Very spacious suites with tall glass windows facing the volcano. In-room jacuzzi is a plus! Beautiful tropical paths through the hotel grounds; Gorgeous pools, with numerous jacuzzi spas just steps away. Nice work-out gym. Tasty Costa Rican meals in the dining room.

The hotel is situated at the base of a volcano so the views are stunning. The rooms are huge but a little tired. The staff are helpful attentive and charming, almost without exception. The one disadvantage is that it is quite isolated. A trip to Fortunta costs 16 dollars and the town is not the best place to visit. It...
