Arenal Kioro Suites and Spa overview

All modern comforts have been catered for from air-conditioning, complimentary WiFi and tea and coffee. In addition all rooms have their own Jacuzzi bathtub. The furniture is modern and decor is in warm earthy tones, which seem to compliment the lush deep greens of the rainforest seen through the windows.

Delicious buffet breakfasts are served each morning in the main restaurant, Heliconias, you will find an array of fresh fruits and juices. The panoramic windows offer breath-taking views of the volcano, an awesome site to take in as you eat. In the evening delicious meals are prepared from a varied menu with meat and seafood specialities. If you are looking for a more casual dining experience, then try Orquideas, next door. Wander down to the bar near the hot springs for a relaxing after dinner drink, or try the lively Carajillos Sports Bar, a popular spot for socialising.

Doctor Andrew Wood

"This was not our favourite hotel. Although it is located right in the forest - good for spotting Howler Monkeys as you drank a cup of coffee in bed - the hotel is a bit tired and this was the only place in CR where we found the service a bit workmanlike. The restaurant has a bit of a functional feel about it - more like a school dining hall than a cosy place to eat, and as a result we went out to eat both nights in La Fortuna which has lots of options with a bit more character. We used their hot pools, which are located a km or so away (shuttle bus provided) which were enjoyable but less so than the ones we were taken too after the Sky tours."

"Stunning views of the volcano from this hotel. Lovely hotel. However, wouldn't recommend the A La Carte restaurant for dinner. Tiramisu and Salmon still frozen! "
Mr. Jeffrey Crowe (03/12/2019)
"Room was a complete wow! Several dining options and staff were amazing. For example, Cesar - the bartender - is a master of finding exotic frogs a few steps away. "
Mr Peter Griffiths
"Excellent accommodation, food and gardens and birding. Liked the in-room hot tub."
