Stayed there with the family in April. The view of the volcano from the room was amazing. The view of the volcano from the breakfast area was maravillous. The pool was ample and relaxing. The thermal pool was even more relaxing. Very close to all the attractions nearby: Lake Arenal, other thermal pools, zip-line, hanging canopy bridges. The room was...

Bad breakfast. food and bev, laundry, spa are all overpriced."superior" suites are good, average 4 star standard. Appearance of the hotel in general is outdated. Service staff is very good. Dont like the pricing strategy where you are lured with good room prices but everything is ridicously overpriced. Clean rooms. Taxis downtown are 12 dollars each way, otherwise you are...

We were very impressed by the size, comfort and cleanliness of our room, which had views of Arenal Volcano. The hotel's grounds were very well-maintained. Breakfast was of good quality. Some items, like pancakes, were made to order at no extra cost. We had one evening meal in the hotel, which we enjoyed. We were travelling with a group tour...

We stayed at Arenal Manoa with our kids( ages 6, 7 and 10)for 2 nights. The room was on the smaller side, but very clean and comfortable. The view out the sliding doors was phenomenal! Full view of Arenal volcano! We were close to ziplining and Proyecto Asis(both were AMAZING!!). After activities, we spent lots of time in the pool...

And it's not the only huge resort in the area either. We were switched to this property because transportation is provided to your room and around the property. I have a knee injury and it would have been impossible to navigate this huge property with out transport. We we centrally located so I could walk to restaurant but any thing...

This is a large property with individual bungalows, each oriented for a view of the volcano. My room and bathroom were very spacious and clean, and the room had comfortable beds, multiple lighting options, good wifi, and air conditioning. I stayed for 2 nights and on the 2nd day they made a little fabric animal out of the bed cover...

Our family of two adults and 2 teenagers had plenty of room in the bungalow, even with an addition of a rollaway. The large patio doors opened up to a patio with chairs and surrounded by plants and a great view of Arenal. The rooms were large and clean with a very large bathroom. A bar area included a stocked...

I adored this place and wish we stayed longer. Not only did we tick off a bucket list item (swimming in the rain with pinacoladas in a hot pool) we enjoyed yummy breakfasts viewing the gorgeous volcano, huge rooms with views to die for. Everything we wanted all in one place. Quiet and great for families. The location was quite...
