Cons: We stayed here for three nights in room 234 which is the farthest from the front desk. After really long excursions each day with hiking and waterfall repelling the last thing I wanted to do was walk through the pitch dark for 20 minutes uphill with vicious Mosquitos to my room! If you ask for a lift from the...

Wonderful hotel in which each room is a part of a two room bungalow. The rooms are large and comfy, but the pillows were too firm for our taste. The hotel grounds are immaculate. There is a hot pool, regular pool, hot tub, two poolside bars, and a huge restaurant where the buffet breakfast is served. From anywhere on the...

The rooms are separate bungalows with only one other room with the entrance on the other side. So you never see people near your door. I was with a Caravan tour and you really didn't see other people unless you wanted to. The hot pools are fantastic. The landscaping is beautiful. If you have a problem walking, they will drive...

We had a great stay here. ..very busy with horse riding, a hike and a trip to the hot springs. The system for making sure that guests have information on trips and get to where they need is very slick and professional. The rooms are very comfortable with a massive bed and a comfy sofa. The bathroom was spotless and...

Arenal Manoa Hotel and Hotsprings is located 10-15 min out of La Fortuna town by car. It is a beautiful and spaced out resort which had suites that were separated and private. The view was amazing in suite #23. The happy hours in the pool and hot springs were great. The restaurant staff was welcoming and super helpful. Be aware...

I enjoyed my 2-night stay at Manoa on June 21 & 22. The rooms were very private and ours (206) had a great view of Arenal. The landscaping around the property is very well done, and was lit well enough to walk to and from the room to other parts of the property at night (they also have a van...

“We liked being far from the front desk, pool, etc because it was very quiet. Others may prefer being closer to the action.”
