Great stay!

Posted Mar 2, 2017
This is a great hotel! Facilities are great, location is amazing and the pools and gardens are incredible. But the best part is the hotel staff; Julio, Jefferson and Bryan at the front desk and Elvis at the pool bar are fantastic guys - provide great service with a smile and always available! The rooms are nice, beds are comfortable and the pool bar and main restaurant serve great food! I would def recommend this hotel!

Great place to stay in the Arenal district.

Posted Feb 27, 2017
Pretty much everything was great - from the amenities to the super-attentive service. Really liked this place. The only downside were the beds. Advertised as queen size, they were more like full or twin size (read: quite narrower).

Beautiful boutique hotel

Posted Feb 26, 2017
This hotel had fabulous views and wonderful staff. I loved the smaller size of the resort, as we got to know the staff and other guests and felt like part of an extended family. The hot pools were plentiful and never crowded, and were refilled fresh each day! Free breakfast was delicious with tons of options - including some traditional costa rican options every day. Rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable and fit our family of 4 very well. While not a "kiddie" hotel, they were very family friendly. The kids loved the pizza restaurant/bar on the top floor with foosball, air hockey, and pool tables (and a nice view of the volcano). They also made quick friends with the swim-up pool bar's staff who made them delicious virgin cocktails while hubby and I enjoyed some more serious drinks. It was a 5 minute drive into the town of Fortuna which had tons of restaurants, ATMs, stores, etc. We organized a bunch of tours through the hotel and loved every one of them. Concierge was super helpful and took care of all the details via email prior to the trip. Each of the outings was less than a 25 min drive from hotel, so it's well situated. We also did a few outings/hikes on our own. Royal Corin was just lovely and I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful hotel close to La fortuna.

Posted Feb 26, 2017
Great service the staff remembered our names the entire stay. The continental breakfast was delicious. Nice pools and outside facilities. We got up graded to a suite for no cost and room was amazing. Room was very clean and had lots of extra details. Chocolates delivery at 730 at night which was nice touch.

Nice hotel with excellent view of Arenal Volcano.

Posted Feb 23, 2017
Location: Lots of fun activities nearby Zipline, rappel, white water raft hike La Fortuna is a 5 minute drive
This is a very nice hotel with excellent security, a nice view of the volcano and clean rooms, all of which face onto the volcano. The only downside of that is that you are close to the main highway and street noise can be an issue. In general service was very good to excellent. Special kudos to Julio at the front desk who deserves a 10/10 rating. Alicia at the restaurant and the person who works at the pizza bar in the evenings and at the restaurant for breakfast also score highly. The all inclusive breakfast is excellent and varied. This hotel also has very nice hot springs and small pools with a nice generally quiet pool area

Excellent Hotel in Arenal Volcano location

Posted Feb 18, 2017
Pros: Staff, staff, staff Well maintained grounds and very clean room
Facilities had modernistic décor and well maintained. Staff were excellent and Jefferson and Julio at the front desk were extremely helpful and courteous. Rooms were comfortable, clean and surprisingly very few bugs (which was a surprise considering that you are in the middle of a rainforest). Complimentary morning breakfast was very good. Buffet with made to order egg station. Excellent service at the spa. The hotel is a 10 minute ride from La Fortuna, $8 each way. Safe to walk around, eat and shop. Centrally located to many activities from zip lines, kayaking, hiking (all skill levels) and guided tours. They can email you a list of tours and arrange before you get there or while your there. I noticed that prices are cheaper in La Fortuna for the same tours so might consider booking there. 2.5 hour drive from San Jose Airport. Hotel can arrange or you can drive (manual) a rental car. Mostly adults at the resort. Did see a couple kids there 6-12 years old.

Wonderful hotel with hot spring! Great service!

Posted Feb 9, 2017
I had such a wonderful stay at The Royal Corin! I have nothing but great things to tell you about this hotel. First I was welcomed by a tropical drink at check in. All staff speak very good English and are very friendly and polite. It comes with free breakfast, and I enjoyed it every morning. Food at the hotel is very good and reasonably priced. Portion is pretty big. Hotel room was very clean and I slept very well every night. I definitely recommend this hotel if you plan to stay in La Fortuna area. Their hot spring and natural steam room were awesome!! Thanks to them, I enjoyed my birthday trip very much.
