We loved this hotel and surroundings. It's very well located to spot the volcano, it has good food and spacious luxorious rooms. Close to La Fortuna town with many animal and bird trails. It has lovely gardens and hot springs. We will come back here one day.

Arenal Kioro is breathtaking, the view from this hotel to the Arenal Volcano is the best in this area. The rooms are very spacious and the hot tub is an amazing extra. The included breakfast was pretty good there were three options to choose from and they were all tasty. The hot springs were a favorite and since the hotel wasn’t packed we were able to enjoy one of the Springs for ourselves (there is several) I recommend this to everyone and if we ever come back to Costa Rica I will stay here again! Thank you Kioro 💕

Spent three nights here on a recent visit. The staff and the room were all solid ... no problems and everything met our expectations. What made this truly special was the view of the Arenal Volcano and the grounds. For the most part, if you didn't care for the view, all you had to do was wait a few minutes and it would change (we were here in March). The grounds were a stunning Eden - each time we walked from our room to the main building (either for a meal or to meet our tour guide), we had to allow an extra twenty minutes or so to fully soak in all of the plants, trees, and animals. Very happy with our stay and definitely give a thumbs up if you're interested in staying here! Just beside to look up as you wander the gardens ... there are SO many stunning birds you would otherwise miss!

My family of five chose the Kiora Suites and Spa for the hot springs, the fact that breakfast was included daily and we could all stay comfortably in one room (and the price was moderate). Initially, we thought the property was fine - certainly our room with two queens and a twin fit our family of five (2 adults, 13, 12 & 7 yr old). The shower was separate of the toilet and sinks, with each offering some privacy. Our suite overlooked the Arenal Volcano, and the gardens of the property - so it was pretty to look outside from our beds. However, the pool was very plain and the overall pool deck was small and nothing special. The hot springs were warm, but certainly not hot and they had a slight odor. The staff was always courteous and the food was delicious, but we were the ONLY family on property. That aspect made us feel like we needed to be quiet at all times....walking around, playing ping pong and especially around the pool and springs. We also had to repeatedly ask for more bath towels, as we were only given four, when we clearly made reservations for five people (just an annoyance really). Property and stay was otherwise fine....hot tub, mini fridge and air conditioning were all in our room. I would recommend more for couples looking for a quiet place to stay.

Wow....I can't say enough good things about this location. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left this was 5 star all the way....we wish we had stayed longer and will definitely come back. The drinks at the bar were phenomenal and the Guaro Sour drink itself is enough to make you want to stay. The view from the room is something out of a dream. I do know we were lucky and no rain and could see the volcano all day all 3 days we were there. The rooms were immaculate and the hot tub is a nice touch. Might not be the best place for a family vacation as there are no activities for kids but for couples you couldn't find a more romantic place. Nonetheless our 14 year boy enjoyed his time there and spent more time admiring the views and wildlife than playing on his phone....even without being forced. Speaking of wildife we saw dozens of bird species, coatis, reptiles & the highlight....a friendly armadillo paid us a visit! I could go on and on but you get the picture.....lastly a special shout out to Jorge at the front desk....he knew and did all to make our trip even better. Thank you Jorge and the rest of the staff for making the first part of our trip unforgettable!
