Royal Corin Hotel, Arenal area

Does anyone have any experience with the Royal Corin Hotel in the Arenal area? I'm trying to figure out if it's in a good location and if it is workable with kids. The rooms look very nice and spacious on its website. Thanks.

Fairly close to town and Baldi/Ecotermales, but on the opposite side of the lava. They look like they have a decent view of the volcano iself.

We didn't stay there, but we drove by it this summer. It looks huge and very upscale. It doesn't have a Costa Rican feel to it, but it looks like it would have loads of amenities. If you're not looking for something fancy, Los Lagos is probably the most popular place to stay with kids.

Stayed in the Royal Corin last July.

Nice BIG contemporary non lava great volcano view rooms

Plasma TV's Rainforest showers luxury feel

Big Balconies great food all different kinds of thermals spa

Right across the street from Baldi Hot Springs

next door to Silencio Del Campo.

Think it would be great for kids.

They had been open 1 month when I was there

Requested got a 25% D/C paid $150/tax well worth it.

Have fun,

Arenal has traditionally been made up of small, quaint tico places; this is one of the new huge upscale hotels that loom over the smaller spots like Silencio del Campo. I know it's progress, but it's a little sad to me to see Arenal changing so much.
