Like I said, wow.. I really wasn't sure what I was thinking when I booked this hotel. I really thought it was just going to be like any other hotel because of the price. Didn't realize we booked a RESORT! :D It's like a little neighborhood with private villas. The views are absolutely stunning inside the room as well as...

We recently stayed at Arenal Manoa and were so impressed with the beauty of the setting and the wonderful service of all of the staff. The hotel rooms are private and spread out over the property which contributes to the beauty of the property. The breakfast was delicious and the staff very responsive to every question when booking tours etc....

We had a comfortable stay at Arenal Manoa. The restaurant food is quite average but the common areas and the gardens are very beautiful. We also thought the tours offered by the concierge were very expensive, probably better to browse for alternative providers.

We were with our 2 kids (5,11) and stayed here 3 nights to discover the Arenal area. The accomodation was nice with good beds, shower.

The resort itself is pretty, but the road leading there is completely riddled with potholes, and if you are driving, beware- the resort is set 1 KM from the mainroad via a cratered path. Also, it would certainly help if the hotel had more signs on the main road so one doesn't miss the little turn right next to another...

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