Hotel Kokoro Arenal, La Fortuna
The best place we have stayed
I was very nervous about hotels in Costa Rica and as I'm sure you are aware there is to many to chose from. Save your self some time and book with Kokoro. The location is perfect from 1968 trail, the hot springs, and la fortuna waterfall. The food was excellent and the staff went beyond my expectations to the point they brought us out favored cake and gave us coffee as a gift to go home with. The room was really nice and spacious with great views of a hummingbird nest out of our window. The only con I can think of is that one of our lightbulbs was burnt out but as we where in and out constantly we never asked for it to be changed. Over all this place is a 10 out of 10 and the standard I will be holding every hotel to Costa Rica.

Wonderful stay!
Beautiful grounds. Excellent service. Great food. Booked our tours with great suggestions. New manager Peggy and "does everything" Evan (sp?) were particularly helpful and friendly.

Lodge Rooms that are not sound-proof
There was no view of the volcano that we could see anywhere on the property. There was a small pool with hot springs water in it, but it didn't look very inviting. The other small pools in the hot springs area weren't even filled with water. There was a swimming pool that I didn't see anyone get in while we were there. It had some green stuff on the bottom which I assumed was algae, but I did see someone cleaning it one morning. I love the tranquility of the hotel, but the cabins are not sound-proof. They have a rooster on the property who will wake you at 5 am. The restaurant is not open during lunch, and only open in the mornings for breakfast and evenings by reservation only, and there's a limited menu. The breakfast buffet was great. It's a shame about the sound-proofing of the rooms because other than that, it was a peaceful place - it just made our mornings very unpleasant getting awoken by noises! If you stay here, bring your ear plugs and don't get anywhere near the reservation office because that's where all the noise is. I would only stay here if you like the rustic lodge feel - reminded me of cabins we stay in at the state parks in the US. And if you don't mind getting awoken early in the morning.

Friendly staff, great view of Arenal Volcano!
We have stayed at this hotel twice. We have been pleased both times. The location is very convenient to the heart of La Fortuna. The best part is waking up and looking out your window at the colossal Arenal Volcano. It is breathtaking! The staff here is always friendly, and the daily breakfast is awesome! The facility is pet friendly and we really enjoyed bringing our dog with us last time.
