If you are looking for a luxury resort in La Fortuna, stop your search now and book the Royal Corin. The staff are the highlight of this hotel: April (who runs the spa), was such a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed. Jesslyn, Valentina, and the wonderful folks at the front desk helped us with every need, big or small, including taxis, reservations and excursions (Steven, Fabian and many more helped us). As we were checking out, the staff double checked our rooms and found a few items we had left behind, which was so nice. The hotel property itself is fabulous. It is only one of two properties in the area to actually have real hot spring water feeding into the pools. They have four jacuzzis, two cold pools, and one large hot spring on the property. There is a wet sauna as well, but it wasn't very hot when we visited. The rooms are spacious and clean. Each room has a balcony with a volcano view, incredible. Make sure to spend some time in the spa as well. Not only were the massages wonderful, but the spa area has additional hot spring pools, two dry saunas, two jacuzzis, a plunge pool and more. Gym is small and therefore requires a reservation, but no problem getting a slot. Finally, the free breakfast (which we didn't even know about!) is bountiful and a real treat. The hotel is immaculate and well-run.

Overall an excellent 5* hotel; some quibbles about dinners and exercise area. Nicely appointed, small (<60 rooms), adults-only boutique hotel with volcano view from every room (well, if the clouds weren't there). Friendly and personal staff ready to help with tours, transportation and money. We stayed in a King room on the 4th floor; there are 2 larger suites per floor (3 floors of rooms). There is a warm (spring fed) pool with a swim up bar and also 4 jacuzzis of increasing temperature. If you're looking for a peaceful place to lounge, read, talk, and have a few drinks and bar lunch, it's great. But it's not Tabacon or The Springs resort if geothermal pools are a novelty you want to explore. Food: A good buffet breakfast is included with something for everyone. But the dinners were variable (we ate one night at the Emperador and once at the top floor Lava Bar Restaurant, with both meals coming from the same kitchen afaict). I had a delicious stuffed chicken breast, but a poorly cooked tough steak. Otoh,the desserts were very good and the meals were inexpensive. My advice would be to take a cab or Uber (~US$5) to La Fortuna where there are dozens of restaurants. One complaint: the "exercise room" is tiny (one treadmill, one elliptical, one set of weights) and has to be reserved.
