4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel grounds are small but beautiful. The staff in one day remembers your name. The attention from danika in the resturant was great. Alfredo at the front desk spoke great english and was always helpful.

Our stay at this hotel was amazing. From the beginning the staff treated us very well. We were here to celebrate our birthdays and they made it unforgettable. Additionally, we planned to do a lot of adventure tours and the staff were great in getting us the tours we wanted and the tours were all amazing. We hiked around the volcano, went ziplining, and hiked in the jungle. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and we would definitely recommend this hotel to others. We were also the youngest people at the resort which sometimes felt weird but all in all it was great.

Perfect place to stay when you are visiting La Fortuna area. We enjoyed all the activities located nearby the hotel and the afternoons we relaxed in the thermal pools of the hotel. Room spacious, clean and comfortable. Hotel staff very polite and professional. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic experience at this hotel! The staff are incredibly nice and helpful; the facilities are amazing (we ended everyday at the thermal pool swim-up bar with a volcano view!); the rooms and the spa are lovely. Highly recommend!

It was wonderful, the setting, the facilities, the food, and spas. But what really makes the place is the people. Amazing services.

The hotel was amazing. The staff was nice, helpful, and always on call. The hot springs were gorgeous and well maintained. Our room was the upgraded suite with volcano view. It was breath taking! I highly recommend this resort.

After a long drive from San José, we arrived late and tired. They welcome you with a nice glass of passion fruit juice and a cool face towel with aromatherapy oil to freshen up. I had never seen such a clean hotel. The breakfast buffet was great. The thermal pool was beautiful and relaxing. The staff was always attentive. We had an issue with our rental car and when the representative from the rental company came to change our car, someone from the hotel staff went with us in case we needed anything. One day we came in looking very tired after a long mountain bike ride, and they just offered to bring us ice so we could have some cold water in the room. Small details, but they were clearly paying attention to the guests.

It was better than excpected great staff very freindly very clean place food was great at restuarant no conplaints!!!!

Very pleasant, attentive and courteous staff. They were very helpful in getting our tours set up. Loved the thermal pool and in-pool bar. Wonderful views of the volcano. Overall had a wonderful stay and would stay again.

By far, the best hotel we have stayed at and we travel frequently. The hotel is a boutique hotel and all rooms have views of volcano. Rooms are modern, luxurious, extremely clean. Rainfall shower. Robes. Great bed linens and bath products. After a long day of site seeing and hiking, perfect to relax and unwind. The thermal pools are clean and so relaxing. The best part of the hotel is the friendly staff who know you by first name and are there to assist with any need you may have. Bryan and Alfredo went out of their way for us and we are so grateful for their kindness and assistance. The location is perfect- short drive to volcano, hikes, tabacon springs on one side and the town, la fortuna waterfall on the other. The breakfast is amazing- different every day fresh fruits smoked salmon gourmet cheese traditional costs ricin foods freshly baked pastries coffee station- list goes on. We already plan to return and will recommend to our family and friends.

We love the thermal pool, the food and the staff! We love to go back someday. It has a nice view of the Arenal volcano.

Great ............................................................................................................................

Very good overalls. Great views though we didn't see the volcano the nature around it was just astonishing.

Every other review of this hotel is spot on- it's a great hotel. A little more expensive than some of the others in the area but for it you get a great room, a wonderful breakfast, pool amenities, parking, etc. The staff is super helpful and the restaurant is better than most hotel restaurants.

We stayed here during "low season" so the hotel didn't have many guests, but our experience was great. The staff was friendly and helped accommodate our requests, including being very helpful in arranging transportation for us. Overall the food at the restaurant was rather good and the waitstaff was excellent, and the complimentary breakfast tasty and a nice money-saving bonus. The menu at the restaurant isn't necessarily "Costa Rican" however, and it is a little on the expensive side, so if you are looking for a more authentic meal or to save a little money, there are plenty of other restaurants and "sodas" in the area to try. Overall, though, I would definitely consider staying at Royal Corin if in the Arenal / La Fortuna area again.

Awesome experince in this hotel. amazing views. spectaculor heated pool and poolside bar. we enjoyed the stay

Royal Corin is a beautiful hotel situated in a great location for a great view of the volcano. We got the junior suite on the fourth floor and it was amazing. Included a couch/lounge area and a 2 seat in-room jacuzzi. The service at the reception and concierge was excellent. One star off for housekeeping incorrectly charging us for 2 waters that we never took. They must have mistaken it for the 2 bottles of water we bought at the supermarket in La Fortuna.

Wow - this hotel is fantastic! The location doesn't get any better - 5 minute drive from Fortuna town and just a few minutes from the activities/adventures. The hotel itself was amazing - the rooms were clean, spacious, and very comfortable. More impressive was the view from the hotel balconies - unobstructed Arenal views! Doesn't get much better! The hotel's hot springs were phenomenal (especially the swim up bar). Even the restaurant was great (and very reasonably priced)! Can't wait to come back on my next trip to Costa Rica!

Good food, good service, great location, con was not alot of people there

This is a really nice hotel in close proximity to many activities. They will coordinate all of your activities and call you a taxi whenever necessary. The breakfast buffet is Costa Rican style and definitely serves it's purpose. The pools are warm and the swim up bar is dual purposed for drinks and/or dinner. It is considered a resort, so expect resort prices on food and drinks. We will definitely stay again in the future.
