most rooms have the view of the culprit. ours didn't but oh well. the rooms are large and clean but lack care in details such as missing paint spots, unfinished electric cord outlets, etc (everything is safe though, no exposed electricity). the beds are comfortable, the pillows firm and the shower is hot if you'd like. the reception is friendly,...

The hotel is comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly but it has seen better days. There was only one other set of guests the time we were there. The spa only had one pool with water in it, the other 3 were empty. The nature trail is overgrown. They have a restaurant and decided to close it one night...

This was our first time in Costa Rica. The rooms here at Komodo remind me a lot of the huts I stayed in when I traveled Southeast Asia. The rooms are simple, because when you are in a beautiful country you don't spend a lot of time indoors. The rooms and pool have a great view of the Arenal volcano...

Spent one night here. Pro - clean and inviting reception area, good breakfast, easy proximity to activites. Cons - Room was very musty, dark and unclean; hot pool was dated and unclean, additional hot pools were not usable/in-use; gardens were untidy; large pool was unclean despite very recent "cleaning". Overall - this property needs some attention.

The staff was friendly and very helpful, the rooms were big and out side you could smell guavas all over. We did not have to think about breakfast but you could change it. The hotel has lot of space to walk and the pools were clean.

Booked Kokoro as a nice break from hostels and a getaway for a private room for my boyfriend and I. We stayed for 2 nights, and it was an extremely quiet and peaceful getaway from all the hustle and bustle of backpacking and hostels. It really feels like a secluded area inside, and there aren't too many people here at...

I loved this place! The natural landscape is amazing. The rooms are rustic bungalows. Very clean and comfy. Staff was amazing. There are natural mineral springs on the property every evening after 4:00. There is also an on site restaurant and a pool, although it was quite cold. Wifi is available in the reception area along with wine and beer...

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.
