The Royal Corin Thermal Water Spa & Resort

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • A peaceful and chic resort with spacious guest rooms and views of the Arenal Volcano
  • The luxe hot springs are a notch above the average outdoor pool, with natural thermal waters, built-in lounge chairs and waterfalls
  • Even the showers left an impression on Fodor's and travelers, many of whom include a mention in their rave reviews of the hotel

"Friendly service [and] a sense of intimacy" -- Fodor's


Map & Directions

Our Deal Experts recommend renting a car for the 2.5-hour drive from the airport in San Jose and to better explore the surrounding areas. A shuttle can also be arranged for $150 per person each way.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


A nature escape with the comforts of a 4-star hotel, the Hotel Royal Corin offers stunning panoramas of the Arenal Volcano without even leaving the room. The intimate property has 54 rooms with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the attentive service. With its manicured grounds and modern design, the property lacks a bit of the lush jungle feel of surrounding resorts, but makes up for it with its incredible views from the rooms, pools, restaurants and sun deck. 

Contemporary guest rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies with sitting areas. Offsetting the light, airy decor of the rooms, the black marbled bathrooms have a decidedly sleek feel with a high-tech rainfall shower that reviewers rave about, making up for the small counter space. Our Deal Experts recommend upgrading to the junior suite: the extra space and amenities like an in-room Jacuzzi overlooking the volcano are worth the extra cost.

Fed by natural thermal spring water, the three pools are different temperatures with a curved swim-up bar in the center. Lounging in the pool area dotted with numerous hot tubs and waterfalls and overlooking the volcano, guests will be hard pressed to find a reason to leave. When travelers do pull themselves away, it's usually for a treatment in the serene full-service spa with a koi pond and outdoor sauna tub for a complete relaxation experience. 

Travelers are a five-minute drive from La Fortuna, the nearby town with shops and restaurants. Adventure seekers can take the 15-minute drive to La Fortuna Waterfall or visit the Arenal Volcano National Park, a 25-minute drive from the hotel. Unwind after a day of relaxing by the pool or venturing to nearby attractions with a cocktail at the indoor/outdoor lobby bar or on the terrace for happy hour before dinner.
