Hotel Arenal Manoa
Arenal is abundant with hikes, sights, tastes, and adventure opportunities. Walk through the forest to a 200-ft (60-m) waterfall and swim in the emerald pool below; raft down the Peñas Blancas River and search for animals along the banks; soak in the geothermal hot springs while looking upon the Arenal Volcano. The options are endless!
Guests of Arenal Manoa will delight in the hotel’s friendly service and impressive volcano views. The hotel is close to many of the area’s main attractions, yet maintains a silent tranquility, as it is surrounded by gardens, old growth trees and a small stream. Visitors are invited to enjoy these gardens and walking trails, or even join in the daily operations at the hotel’s dairy farm, Finca Manoa.
The hotel has both an adult and children’s swimming pool, as well as a Jacuzzi and wet bar. Needless to say, relaxation comes easily while staying here. Laundry service is available to guests – a definite perk after a romp in the rainforest – and good eats can be had at the onsite Dorado Restaurant. This restaurant serves an intriguing mix of local and international cuisine, and is available to guests throughout the day and night.
All rooms at Arenal Manoa are spacious, individual-standing suites that have a volcano view and private sitting area. They are equipped with two queen size beds, air conditioning, satellite TV, hairdryer, coffee maker, telephone and mini-fridge. The bathrooms are spacious and have open-air hot water showers. Some of the rooms are wheelchair accessible.
