Hotel Kokoro

500 m west of the Quebrada la Palma, La Fortuna, Alajuela, Costa Rica

Spacious and clean rooms at this hot-springs hotel are like mini log cabins with hardwood floors and sugarcane ceilings—Nos. 16, 17, and 18 even offer views of the volcano. Many guests are drawn to the on-site thermals and swimming pool near the restaurant, where meals are served in high season only. The breakfast buffet is plentiful, and the owner’s cheerful mother occasionally delivers piping-hot empanadas to your table. You’ll notice Asian touches like teas, soaps, and lobby decor imported from the founder’s homeland of Taiwan. Hospitality is warm and generous, and the staff go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Although the property brands itself as an eco-hotel, rooms still have a/c, mini-refrigerators, and flat-screen TVs. The newest rooms, added in 2015, are between Nos. 17 and 20.
