Best boutique hotel in La Fortuna
If you're looking for something in between an eco-lodge and a resort, Kioro is the best of both worlds. Their staff is amazing (especially Victor and Francinia), the food is the best in town, the rooms are squeaky clean, the views are breathtaking, and there aren't a ton of other guests running around so it's peaceful. They also have private access to a cute hot springs spot. Their spa is quite small, but still lovely. The landscaping is beautiful and attracts many types of birds. The balcony connected to Heliconias restaurant is gorgeous. I held my wedding reception here and it was above and beyond what I expected. The decorations, live music, food, drinks, and service, were all spot on. I've stayed in several places around Costa Rica and this one is my favorite. Definitely better than The Springs.
Stayed for 3 nights as part of our CR trip. It was our anniversary one of the nights and we made a reservation for the hotel restaurant. To our surprise the table was decorated and we had gifts and even a special cake! Even without the fuss, the hotel was excellent, with wonderful views of the volcano (weather permitting of course)! beautiful grounds and the staff were welcoming and efficient. A lovely place to call home for a while. Would recommend.
Rooms are huge with a big hot tub and all rooms have an amazing view of the volcano. The rooms are very clean and the property is nicely landscaped. There are several hot spring soaking pools. The restaurant is surrounded in glass so it also provides amazing volcano views. the staff could not have been more attentive. Lovely place!
My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica March 2020. We spent the first half of our stay at Arenal Kioro Suites and Spa. This hotel is beautiful, the suites are large with amazing views of the volcano and large sliding doors. Our suite was very private. Hot tub right in the room is nice. The on and off site hot springs are very relaxing. Take a taxi into La Fortuna to get a more local feel. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful resort with unparalleled views!
My husband and I recently spent three nights at Arenal Kioro and loved it! I wish we could have stayed longer. The service was very attentive and the staff could not have been kinder. We stayed in one of the suites and it was huge. The beds faced a wall that was entirely glass with slider doors and a balcony that faced the volcano. It was like waking up in a postcard! This is the closest hotel to the base of the volcano, so the view is unparalleled. The hot springs pools were fabulous. We would definitely stay there again.
