Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa 

A stellar setting nose-to-nose with Arenal Volcano

This is one of the closest hotels to Arenal Volcano and you get spellbinding views of it from every room.

To stay here is to be immediately transported into lush rainforest dotted with seven small hot spring pools. The atmosphere is down-to-earth and relaxed, making it a wonderful choice for families looking to kick back. Each spacious room features a balcony with panoramic volcano views and there’s a free shuttle that takes you to Titokú Hot Springs for a sultry soak.

Why we love Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa

  • Poolside dining, a main restaurant for breakfast and dinner and both a cocktail bar and sports bar
