The Arenal Manoa was our first stop (of two) in Costa Rica. Costa Rica Expeditions picked up our family of eight at the San Jose airport, on time in a new, clean, minibus. They handled our luggage and provided a very knowledable guide,( Eduardo), drinks and snacks for the 3-4 hour trip to La Fortuna. They were even kind enough...

We were very lucky as the weather was brilliant and we saw the volcano without any clouds. Our room was beautiful with a large bathroom. It is a pity that the room had two doubles rather than one large king size bed but we found this all the time in Costa Rica. The restaurant was very nice but it always...

This is a really nice hotel, especially for the price. You are very likely to spend a lot more somewhere else, and get get a lot less. The rooms and the grounds are immaculate, the staff are nice and attentive, and the food is delicious (albeit a little expensive). This is more like a luxury hotel meets an eco lodge....

We stayed at the Arenal Manoa for 2 nights with a Caravan Tour group. Of all the places we stayed during our 9 day tour of Costa Rica, this was my favorite hotel. The grounds were kept immaculate and the rooms especially the bathrooms were very spacious. The units of two rooms were spaced far enough away from each other...

In January we toured Costa Rica and all our accommodations were chosen for us. Hotel Manoa was such a delightful surprise. All the units seemed to be 2 bungalow type units scattered over acres of landscaped grounds.

First off, the grounds were unbelievably beautiful. unfortunately, it was too cloudy to see the volcano but oh well. Though our room was some distance from reception, it wasn't a big deal (until the day we left w/ our luggage). The hot pools were great especially since it was rainy and cool for our 3 day stay.

The hotel consists of many separate cottages some of which are a fairly long walk from registration and the restaurant.
