It's a good place to stay while in la fortuna. Quiet, spacious, well-kept, most of the rooms have a good Arenal view and are large. Breakfast is solid. Nothing bad to say. A good mid-range option on the lower price end. Definitely recommended.

Located a short drive from the busyness of La Fortuna, Kokoro offers a quiet escape with a gorgeous view of Arenal. The staff was warm and genuine. The hot springs are beautifully maintained, as are the hotel grounds. After a full day of activities, Kokoro offers a tranquil place to rest and recharge for the next adventure. We were delighted with our stay and highly recommend booking Kokoro to anyone traveling to the area!

The people who run this place are amazing. They handle customers needs with ease and grace and create a relaxing environment so confusing to connecting with other travelers while maintaining good boundaries. They helped us with all sorts of arrangements - adventures, dinner, transportation and more

This was our first time at this little but amazing hotel. My girlfriend booked this place very easily via WhatsApp. We received such a good attention from everyone there. The guy at the reception was very kind and gave us a very nice room with everyting we needed. The two waiters at the restaurant were amazing. The food is great, we had breakfast and one dinner there. For the price, this place gave you many things than other hotels don't. They have a small but very nice hot spring, which is very relaxing. The only thing that need to be improved is the bed sheets. The need to be replaced , they seem old and in some parts they were stained. Overall, our stay was very nice and I totally recommend this quiet, cozy and beautiful hotel.

The room was a little dim but so cozy! Just walking around the property is breathtaking, and coming home after a day of hiking/adventuring in the rain to soak in the hot springs was the best feeling. We visited during low season so there weren't very many other guests but they made sure to have the hot springs open and running for us when we wanted to use them. Breakfast was included and was absolutely delicious. It's far enough out of town that it feels like you are in the middle of the forest but just a quick drive in for supplies/ dinner. We had an amazing time at Kokoru and would absolutely return!
