My girlfriends and I stayed here for four nights during a 5 day visit to La Fortuna/Arenal area. The first thing that was great about staying at Arenal Manoa is that if you contact the hotel ahead of time, they will arrange transportation from the airport to the hotel for you. Us five girls had a van to ourselves, our driver stopped halfway to the hotel at a beautiful restaurant where we could eat and use the restrooms before we continued the journey from SJO to the hotel. Check in was very easy, the resort the hotel is on is beautiful, we had two rooms where were in one bungalow that we had all to ourselves. It is very private, you have a great view of the volcano from every room. They have a shuttle on site that transports you from your room to the pool or to the restaurant. There are two large pools, each with hot tubs. One is fed by the local hot springs and both have a pool bar, all the bar tenders and servers here are very friendly and did a great job. We ate the free breakfast every day, which was very good and we ate at the restaurant one night, which also had great food. The hotel provides a local cab for you that is a private cab for just this hotel, the driver we had was Marlon and he was the best! He had great recommendations for where to go and what times were the best times to visit places, we couldn't have done this trip without him. Very comfortable, spacious, and clean rooms. We stayed in rooms 216 and 217 and they were fantastic. We cannot thank Arenal Manoa enough for the great stay while in Costa Rica! Pura Vida!
