The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and very helpful. While not special, the breakfast buffet was adequate and including typical local dishes. The grounds of the hotel include a small forest area with occasional wildlife, and a nice hot spring spa, included in the room rate. The hotel is a short cab ride (4 km) from...

We stayed at Hotel Kokoro for 4 nights and it was the best experience we could have asked for. The location of the hotel was on the main road of all the other hotels, hot springs, horseback riding, and other activities. Tho not walking distance to the main town of La Fortuna, the staff were more than welcome to help...

If you want to experience one night in the rainforest, then this is your place! I booked a a great deal through Orbitz using my points and so only paid about $22/night. I chose this location because it was somewhat near Tabacon Hot Springs and the Tabacon Resort rooms were too expensive ($100+ night). I was surprised at how secluded...

Towels provided daily for shower and pool towels available at front counter. Overall comfortable stay. Some of the cons, some of the windows didn't close right, the drapes wrong size...

This place has cabins scattered throughout its beautiful rain forest property. Because of the location, there was a constant mist at night, and because the grounds are so lush, there will be big insects everywhere! (to me, this added to the experience!) We arrived at night, and the pathways were dark, and it was somewhat confusing how to get to...

The good: Booked a "Eco Cabinas Double" though I think we were upgraded to one of the lodges along from reception. The room was air conditioned, spacious and had very comfortable beds. Shower was periodically cold but not too much of an issue. Toilet flusher broke during our stay and they were efficient in fixing it. The view of the...

This eco-lodge was indeed very clean, comfortable, with great customer service, and with a great pool and on-site hot springs which was definitely a major plus. Rooms were spacious and beds were very comfortable

The villas are perfect with the most amazing jungle views. The bed was comfortable and I loved the sound of the rain outside our room. Bismark was fabulous in the restaurant. The hot spring felt great at the end of the day and the little jungle hike was fun.
