Best part about this resort is that the rooms are bungalow's surrounded by beautiful grounds. We arrived Tuesday June 8th and were received with welcome drinks. The grounds are pretty big so walking to and from the front desk was a bit of a walk but nothing we couldn't handle plus we loved the scenery of the well kept grounds....

This resort is quite beautiful. The bungalow rooms are comfortable, the service is extraordinary, and the location is great. It has two pools, both with swim up bars. Mario, bartender extraordinaire at the Piscina, makes a mean drink and provides quite pleasant conversation, teaching us a lot about Costa Rica since this was our first visit. It won't be our...

All of the rooms feel quite private because of the beautiful landscaping. We had a view of the volcano from our room. The pools were so much fun. 3 different happy hours at 3 separate bars. Swim up bars, hot tubs and hot spring pool. The staff made us feel at home and very patient with our language difficulty.

Stayed here last week for 3 nights. The rooms are bungalows and we had 2 adjoining rooms making up the entire bungalow, we traveled with our 2 teenage girls. Rooms large and spacious with a big bathroom having a skylight and a small garden-very unique, we loved it. We had rooms 224 and 225, which were very private. Sitting on...

Arenal Manoa was the first hotel we stayed at while at Arenal. Location wise, it is right in between downtown La Fortunate and the Arenal park which was quite convenient. I like how they landscaped the grounds. The rooms have their own 'bungalow' and you can drive your car right in front of it which is efficient. I enjoyed walking...

This is a wonderful hotel. My family stayed a few nights at the Arenal Manoa Hotel and loved it. The rooms are very comfortable and provided great views of the volcano (when the weather cooperated) The staff was very friendly and most of them were happy to chat in English when they realized the limitations of my Spainsh.

This property was wonderful. Enjoyed the Thermal pools and swim up bar. They had many different happy hours. The food was good too. The only complaint is that the bar made weak drinks and had a hard time keeping track of who ordered what and what room to charge to. I'd visit again next time I'm in Costa Rica.

I didn't know what to expect when I booked our stay at this property. The reviews were good, but I felt a little nervous about it.

By far, this was the best place we stayed in Costa Rica. The views of Arenal Volcano from the individual casitas were spectacular. The dining room was picturesque. The pool area was beautiful. Everything was clean. Employees were friendly and knowledgeable, especially Natalia at the front desk. We absolutely loved staying here. Pura Vida!
