What can I say about this hotel except it was amazing! It is set in beautiful grounds with with lots of natural wildlife and beautiful flowers to be seen. Close to the Wonderful La Fortuna Waterfall and many other sites to see.Hotel staff very friendly be prepared to do some up hill hiking to your room. Highly recommend.

We stayed here in March 2014 having booked only a day or so in advance. We had previously stayed at the Nayara which probably tainted our view of Los Lagos slightly because we had such good service there. The hotel is spread across the hillside and if you're in one of the rooms at the top/back then it's a long...

I'm writing particularly about the spa. I did not stay at the resort. There are several hot and cold pools to chose from. One of which has a bar with music and was very lively. There was nice dim lighting atmosphere at night. The big water slide is a must! It is the craziest water slide I've ever been on!...

The facility is well designed and maintained. Beautiful views of the Arenal Volcano. The pools filled with hot springs water is the best part. Water slides and swim up bar made this a terrific evening activity. Crocodiles and butterflies for viewing. Nice buffet and comfy rooms. An excellent choice for a family stay.

This place was very much a 'resort' in the US sense but that's not a complaint, especially with the hot pools and slides! Room was motel style but perfectly fine and the service spot on. What makes this place though was the location - never stayed on an active volcano before! Stunning and scary!

This Hotel might not be the cheapest in the area, but it was a great value... The hot thermal pools are excelent and right there as part of the main hotel amenities. The rooms are ample and clean, but the bathrooms are a tad dated and small in comparison to the size of the rooms. It was a hassle that...

The grounds and views are amazing. The rooms are not. Although large, we only had beds, no chairs in the room. There were chairs outside to enjoy the view. The beds in our room were very hard and there were multiple trails of ants you could barely see around the inside of the room. Doors did not seal, ours had...

Grounds are fabulous, restaurant food is excellent. No in room coffee maker. No in room fridge. Shuttle bus reliable and frequent. Went rafting on the Sarapiqui, which was excellent.

The location is outstanding (directly at the base of the volcano) The hotel grounds are spectacular. The pools are awesome. The water slides were a blast. As adults, we loved these. The crocodile sanctuary was very cool. The food at the main restaurant was excellent. Unfortunately, the hotel front desk staff was rude. I tried to speak with them on...
