The place is certainly clean and I will admit my kids LOVED the water slides, the pools, and the crocodiles. But from a seasoned adult traveler's point of view, the rooms were very out of date - the place seems like it hasn't been renovated since 1980 ... the food is sub-par ... and sorry to say it, but I...

I have very mixed feelings about this hotel, due to what I would call it's -plasticity- there are some nice features and the rooms are fine but overall I found this a rather oppressive place due to it resembling a holiday camp- it would apeal to many families as it is that sort of place but for us ,after staying...

This is THE party spot in La Fortuna!!! Water slides, zip lines butterfly garden, swim-up bar, shuttles to and from your rooms, and of course the main attraction volcano Arenal!!!! This place is a fun park with everything you need for a short stay or the entire trip. Food, fun, drinks and a wonderful landscape. My stay was so wonderful....

This is my second time to Costa Rica.. First time to Los Lagos. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained, the pools were sparkling, my 25 year old son loved the water slides, and the hot springs pools were warm and inviting. The rooms were spacious, clean and issue free. The staff...

We really enjoyed our stay which surpassed expectations. The breakfast buffet was excellent, our villa exceptional, the hotel grounds an absolute luxury and our villa was fantastic with the most extraordinary views.

First let me start off by saying that the pictures on website and trip advisor don't really do this place justice. It definitely exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't say it is the nicest hotel I've stayed at but the property itself is great and for the price you can't beat it. Location was great. Just far enough outside La Fortuna...

There is a lot to do at Los Lagos. We like to take a private horse tour instead of with a big group. The grounds are well kept and the rooms are clean. Breakfast is good and the thermals are the best. My favorite is the swim up bar in the large thermal pool.

We didn't stay at Los Lagos, but we got to check out the grounds and eat at the restaurant as part of a tour we went on. The grounds were SO PRETTY!! It's the kind of place you go to stay and don't even have to leave the hotel to find amazing things. They have a butterfly house, crocodiles, and...
