Review Summary

Photos and Review by


  • Big rooms, all with Jacuzzis, volcano views, and two terraces
  • Lush, beautiful grounds
  • Natural thermal springs and a beautiful spa
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • 24-hour room service
  • Lovely (if small) pool with volcano views
  • Free parking


Bottom Line

Arenal Kioro Suites and Spa takes full advantage of its natural setting: The rooms, restaurants, and pool all offer stunning views of Arenal Volcano. Big suites all come with large Jacuzzis and two terraces, but the tube TVs and floral bedding make them feel slightly less luxe than those at the nearby Arenal Nayara.

Perfect volcano views and harmony with the outdoors

A view from the Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa

If views are what you're after, the Arenal Kioro is tough to top. The hotel's developers used a laser to align each room with the volcano, so there's not a bad view in the house. (Though the views from the second floor are slightly better than views from the first floor.) Even better, there's no risk of future development marring the outlook, because the hotel abuts Arenal Volcano National Park.

The hotel makes the most of not only the views, but the entire natural setting. Part of the lobby is open-air, overlooking green hills; there's an outdoor area off of the restaurant; and every room has not one, but two terraces. On the grounds, stone paths wind through lush landscaping, and waterfalls connect seven small pools filled with natural thermal waters.


Located in one of the most beautiful parts of Costa Rica, but far from airports and most other tourist attractions

Map of Arenal Kioro Suites and Spa

The hotel is located in La Fortuna, home to hot springs, the 236-foot Waterfall La Fortuna and the 5,437-foot Arenal Volcano. The hotel is so close to the volcano you can actually hear and see small tephra eruptions from the guest rooms.

  • 3-hour drive to San Jose and Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO)
  • 2.5-hour drive to Liberia Airport
  • 5-hour drive to Manuel Antonio National Park, home to some of the country's best beaches, an evergreen forest, and diverse wildlife (including monkeys, sloths, tucans, and iguanas)


11 Couples Suites and 42 Family Suites with great views and indoor Jacuzzis

Rooms at the Arenal Kioro are pretty much identical. The only difference between Couples Suites and Family Suites is the bed type: Couples Suites have a king bed, and Family Suites have two queen beds. The hotel only has two floors, and all rooms have exceptional views.
