Beautiful facilities with individual cabins.

The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. Our room was a full cabin which was spacious, with a king-bed and a twin. The king was soft and comfy and the twin was very firm, which was ok for me but probably not for everyone. There is a hot springs on the grounds and a pool. We also had a great view of the Mt. Arenal volcano from the site (but not from our room). The staff were friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was a nice buffet. The location is a short drive from La Fortuna, which was just fine if you have a car.

Cool Hotel

Location: Located on highway between La Fortuna and the volcano and lake. While the driveway is on the highway it is far enough away so there is no road noise.
It is different from what you would think of a hotel. It is actually individual cabins in the jungle. There is not individual parking by the units, you park near the reception area and walk down short paved trails. It is important to note there are no phones or WIFI in the rooms. WIFI is available in some common areas. The location is off the main road between La Fortuna and Arenal, very convenient but also secluded. The rooms are huge with AC, ceiling fan, and TV. Did I mention there’s no WIFI. The grounds are lush with jungle vegetation, There are natural hot spring baths, a large pool, covered outdoor yoga area, on-site restaurant and always hot coffee in the reception area. Breakfast is good but basic. Really a nice place to stay and at a good off-season rate.

Great boutique value hotel

Pros: Comfort, convenience
Location: Convenient location with all access to all the major Arenal activities.
Hotel Kokoro is a great mid-range boutique hotel with access to all the activities you would want to do. It's a smaller property and doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a 5-star, but met all of my needs and at a good pricepoint. The cabins were very spacious and comfortable. Food at restaurant was good too.

Great hotel amidst a beautiful setting and views of Arenal. Breakfasts are great but no bar for cocktails. Food available for dinner was okay. You have to take a cab ($8 total) each way to get to and from La Fortuna town where there are restaurants.

Great boutique value hotel in Arenal

Pros: Rooms were very spacious. It was like having your own little cabin. The overall atmosphere was very serene. Staff were helpful and location was good..
Cons: Some of the other properties were larger and had more amenities, but as I said it's a great price point for Arenal.
Location: Convenient location for outdoor activities and visiting La Fortuna.
If you're looking to save money but have a good experience I'd highly recommend Hotel Kokoro. It's smaller and doesn't have all the resort-style amenities, but the rooms were clean and have everything I needed. The restaurant was good, and the staff was very helpful arranging activities for me even last-minute. It also has a pool and small hot springs area.

Good value, great location

Pros: First of all, Majid at the front desk provided excellent customer service! He booked several local excursions for us, as well as the airport taxi ride
Cons: The restaurant hours are very limited, and you have to make advance reservations. There is no separate bar.
Location: Kokoro is located right in the middle of all the activities in the La Fortuna area, including eco tours, ATVs, ziplining, etc.
Our family of four stayed recently at Kokoro. Overall, we found the hotel to be comfortable and a good overall value, but the location was the best part of it. The staff is very helpful in arranging local trips and transportation, making recommendation, etc. Each room is a private cabin/cottage type of structure with lots of space inside. The bathroom is large and bedding is fairly comfortable. The rooms are more on the rustic side, so don't expect luxurious accomodations, but you have everything you need.

Tropical grounds, quaint rooms, very basic services and facilities . Very convenient location to anything in and around la fortuna. Not luxury but more like upgraded camping. Kitchen is lacking for meals so you need to eat outside of hotel for meals.

Pros: See above..the staff, the cabinas, the hot tub with mineral water, the breakfast, the coffee...
Cons: Had trouble with our shower..regulating the temperature..cant think of anything else!
Location: Loved that we were out of the hustle and bustle of la fortuna. Tons if things to in fortuna, hike, zipline, whatever you want!
Very friendly and knowledgable staff that spoke great english! Really good coffee 24/7. Very good breakfasts. Loved our little cabinas...only down side was perhaps the shower..not much luck regulating the temp but we managed okay. Would not hesitate to return. Loved that we were away from the hustle and bustle of fortuna!
