This property has it all. Stunning views of the volcano, a great pool, 3 happy hours, good restaurant with amazing views, plenty of rainforest sounds, excellent staff and perfect location. They have both a regular cool water pool AND a thermal pool with fresh hot water from the volcano! The only downside is the junky dirt road leading to the...

This is a great resort with fabulous grounds, outstanding villas and lots of birds all around you. The onsite restaurant and bar is quite good with excellent service staff. It is outside La Fortuna with a superb view of the volcano. This property offers many excursions to suit its guests. The pool offers a in-pool bar. We did not partake...

You get your own bungalow here with 2 queen beds in each...very spacious. Has WIFI and A/C. Big sliding glass door that leads to a patio overlooking the volcano, we got lucky and had a clear day the day we arrived and got great pics! All rooms overlook the volcano. Went for a run each morning around the complex, very...

The grounds of this hotel are exceptionally beautiful and, since each room is in sort of a bungalow, it means that there are lots of places to walk within the property. It also means that, unless you have a car you must phone for a driver to take you to the reception area. Even if you arrange to be picked...

What a wonderful visit/stay I had at Arenal Manoa Hotel & Spa. Check in was easy & pleasant. The grounds were a beautiful tropical setting. The room was up scaled from everything from the patio seating to the beautiful walk in shower. The pool with the swim up bar was great. All of the personnel was kind, considerate & helpful.

This is by far one of my favorite Hotels I have ever stayed at! The rooms were great, very clean, and big! Our room in particular had a great view of the volcano that we were even able to see from the bed! We enjoyed the balcony as well! All the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was amazing!...

We stayed here for 3 nights on our trip in Costa Rica. The rooms were spacious, clean and had a gorgeous view of the volcano. Unfortunately, the volcano was always covered by a cloud--funny thing --it actually rains in the rain forest even in the dry season! I had a wonderful facial in the spa--pampered by the sounds of nearby...

I took a 10-day vacation in Costa Rica, staying in 5 different hotels. Out of all of them, Arenal Manoa Hotel might have been my favorite. The property itself is gorgeous and provides a great view of the volcano! The rooms were very elegant with comfy beds and a nice, clean bathroom. I was lucky enough to have a room...

Lovely and relaxing hotel. The rooms are like small, simple but clean individual bungalows. The patio was my favorite part since we got a great view of the volcano. The grounds are well-kept with nice foliage however, make sure to get a room close to the hot springs and restaurant since the grounds are expansive and can take awhile to...
