Arlington, Virginia
Reviewed 2 March 2015

We only stayed one night at the Arenal Manoa, but it was a very comfortable stay. The rooms are spacious and each has a small deck with chairs and a table - a very pleasant location for an evening glass of wine. The hot springs pool was very nice, although it is probably a bit underwhelming versus the hot springs...

We enjoyed the comfort, beauty and kind service of this lovely hotel in Arenal. The airline lost my bag, and the hotel staff were so diligent in tracking it down for me and getting it delivered from San Jose! We were traveling with friends and had adjoining rooms in a villa-like building with lovely plants and patio. Room was spacious...

The grounds and pool area of this property are magnificent with a stunning view of the volcano. Just walking around is an absolute pleasure. The rooms are well decorated and reasonably sized. They have a cozy feel that complements the beauty of the outdoor scenery. Highly recommended.

Probably the most magnificent view I have had in any hotel I've stayed at world-wide. From the huge picture window /slider from the main room the magnificent Arenal Volcano was just overwhelming! Hot spring pools were great, as well swim-up bar. Restaurant was excellent and grounds were immaculate.

Overall we had a very good experience here. The location was perfect.

The staff is pleasant and helpful. Well maintained buildings, landscape...

I loved the hotel. I liked the way the rooms/bungalows were set up. It did not feel like a hotel. It was a wonderful property. I am told our room faced a volcano. Unfortunately, we had to use our imagination. We did enjoy the thermal waters. Food was OK but not outstanding.

Lovely gardens (even in your huge bathroom!) and great for walking around. Delightful patio outside your room, complete with rocking chairs! Terrific hot-springs pool, complete with waterfall and swim-up bar, all accessible by a ramp into the water! Food was delightful, lots of choice and so fresh and delish! You must try the fresh yogurt, served in large jugs!

“We liked being far from the front desk, pool, etc because it was very quiet. Others may prefer being closer to the action.”
