Arenal Manoa

Arenal Manoa is a moderate hotel just outside La Fortuna, offering a delightful mix of traditional, Costa Rican charm and various service-oriented amenities at the base of the Arenal Volcano.  Arenal Manoa is an ideal hotel for families with children, couples, or small groups interested in a cozy, value-friendly option in the Arenal Volcano region.

There are 80 identical Junior Suites at Manoa.  Each Suite is equipped with two queen beds, unobstructed volcano views, Wi-Fi, A/C, satellite TV, safe, hairdryer, minibar and coffee maker.  There are also a handful of Suites that offer an adjoining room feature for larger families or groups with younger children.  Breakfast is included and served buffet style at La Saca Restaurant, where lunch and dinner a la carte menus are also available.

Arenal Manoa’s beautiful, expansive property offers tropical gardens, walking paths, and a traditional, full-functioning farm for guests to enjoy. What makes Arenal Manoa unique, other than their local ownership, is their fostering of traditional farming practises.  Before La Fortuna was known as a tourist stop, its main source of income was agriculture (dairy production).  Today, the hotel prides itself on their full-functioning farm where guests can take a guided tour to experience La Fortuna’s past-time by milking cows and harvesting eggs.  This is a complimentary tour for Arenal Manoa guests and a great activity for children. The property also features two pools with swim-up bars, Güipipia Bar at the family pool and Uyuyui Bar at the thermal pool.  For a therapeutic experience, relax in spring-fed Jacuzzis alongside each pool or head to the full-service spa for a treatment.
