First off, the grounds were unbelievably beautiful. unfortunately, it was too cloudy to see the volcano but oh well. Though our room was some distance from reception, it wasn't a big deal (until the day we left w/ our luggage). The hot pools were great especially since it was rainy and cool for our 3 day stay. The room was...

The hotel consists of many separate cottages some of which are a fairly long walk from registration and the restaurant. Fortunately, the walk to the restaurant allows for viewing the beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees that adorn the premises. The rooms are large and comfortable. The bathroom had a large, spectacular shower. Unfortunately, we did not see the volcano because...

The grounds are beautifully landscaped, the rooms clean and spacious. The hot springs, though in a swimming pool form, are deliciously warm with a swim up bar. The restaurant was good - be sure to try the volcano dessert. Adventurously presented. We took 6 tours from the hotel - zip line, LaFortuna Waterfall, Volcano hike, Tabacon Hot Springs, Cano Negro...

We only stayed one night at the Arenal Manoa, but it was a very comfortable stay. The rooms are spacious and each has a small deck with chairs and a table - a very pleasant location for an evening glass of wine. The hot springs pool was very nice, although it is probably a bit underwhelming versus the hot springs...

We enjoyed the comfort, beauty and kind service of this lovely hotel in Arenal. The airline lost my bag, and the hotel staff were so diligent in tracking it down for me and getting it delivered from San Jose! We were traveling with friends and had adjoining rooms in a villa-like building with lovely plants and patio. Room was spacious...

The grounds and pool area of this property are magnificent with a stunning view of the volcano. Just walking around is an absolute pleasure. The rooms are well decorated and reasonably sized. They have a cozy feel that complements the beauty of the outdoor scenery. Highly recommended.

Probably the most magnificent view I have had in any hotel I've stayed at world-wide. From the huge picture window /slider from the main room the magnificent Arenal Volcano was just overwhelming! Hot spring pools were great, as well swim-up bar. Restaurant was excellent and grounds were immaculate.
