We chose this hotel out of the blue. It was a wonderful decision. Our room overlooked the volcano and the property was beautiful. As another guest there said, "the pictures don't do it justice!" The grounds were lovely and the pool that was heated by the volcano was out of this world. The breakfast that was included was very good...

This hotel is simply fantastic. The grounds are stunningly beautiful and my junior suite was absolutely gorgeous! A private entrance and a 10 foot wide patio door led out to my own private yard and a covered slate terrace with two wood rocking chairs and a table. Large led-lit beds, a minibar, a full-height mirror, large closet space, a huge...

We just spend 5 days in Arenal in Costa Rica. My husband, myself and my boys who are 19 and 21. We stayed at the Hotel Arenal Manoa which sits adjacent to a volcano. The hotel was very nice. The rooms were clean and spacious and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. One server named Roberto was our favorite....

Beautiful room with a view of the Arenal Volcano. Wide sliding glass doors open onto your private seating area. Very clean and well-maintained. We did not use the pools, because we got there late the first night, and spent the next day zip lining and exploring the rain forest, then left on the third day. The restaurant is open-air and,...

roomy, clean and nice rooms (actually cabanas) with views of the volcano (if the clouds ever clear) and garden patios that allow you to view a plethora of birdlife. very nice staff, prices were more than they should be for mediocre food and you are a long, long way from town - you have to take a taxi into La...

A lot of the hotels up in La Fortuna look like boutique bed and breakfasts but they're actually quite large. This property is huge and each room is part of a duplex bungalow. The rooms have recently been redone and are spacious. The rooms are nice and clean and the view of the volcano is pretty spectacular. You can see...

My son and I stayed at this hotel for two nights (wish it was more!) and love love love it. The "rooms" are actually like little houses and they are beautiful! The volcano was hidden by fog but when it cleared up it was phenomenal. There is a gorgeous swim up bar at the pool and the only negative thing...

We revisited Arenal Manoa after first visiting it in 2010. It was the first resort we stayed at in Costa Rica and have been back to the country 7 times since. We always wanted to revisit and finally took the opportunity to do so. It was just as beautiful as we remembered. The landscaping of the grounds is one of...
