Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa

10 km northeast of La Fortuna, before Tabacon , Arenal Volcano National Park, Alajuela, 21007, Costa Rica

Other than Observatory Lodge, this is the closest property to Arenal Volcano with rooms boasting hydro-massage Jacuzzis, sitting areas, jaw-dropping views, Juliet balconies, and nearly 700 square feet of space. High ceilings, almost too much space, and queen beds that face walls of glass are what set this property apart from competitors; but at night when the curtains are drawn, rooms can be rather dark and stuffy (electricity operates by key card). The beautifully manicured grounds make up for this minor pitfall, with streams, gardens, and thermal springs that cascade from the swimming pool down to the spa. Hospitable touches range from welcome cocktails to a free minifacial. Guests receive complimentary admission to the Titokú Hot Springs, located 6 km (4 miles) south of the hotel and 5 km (3 miles) north of La Fortuna.
