4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Did not stay at the hotel but there for the day pass after purchasing a zipline package with them so not a bad deal. Definately a large hotel good for families with kids since the place has multiple pools with multiple slides and some animals to view... I would recommend it if you are traveling with young kids.

The front desk staff were very polite/bilingual. The warm pools/hot springs and lush outdoor decor are what really make this resort special. One is also surprised by a large, open-air, butterly zoo (blue morphs, etc.) We were very disappointed in our room - it looked ancient, dark and depressing. Definitely don't take the least expensive room. Also, the store staff... More

My wife and I had booked the Los Lagos hotel prior to our arrival in Costa Rica after reading various reviews. As a couple going on honeymoon, our expectations were very high. We arrived at the resort rather late in the evening and were greeted by the friendly staff. After a brief check-in and some explanations about the resort's activities,... More

I read all the mixed reviews before staying here so that I would be "prepared". The grounds were beautiful. Perfectly manicured. We stayed in a superior room which had an unbelievable view of Arenal Volcano; I couldn't believe it was so close. ..... The rooms were clean, and simple. Not elegant like a Hilton but we were very content. Yes... More

I would like to give this hotel a one, but that would not be fair. There are pools and slides and if I'd had children with me, I'm sure they would have loved it. There's a nice swim-up bar, where I ate two or three times (on the walk-up portion), and the food was reasonably priced and typical bar food,... More

The stay here was good. That said let me get some things of my chest: We ended our CR trip here to relax and kick back the last few days. Now we knew it was a resort and that was ok for us. But having felt the love and joy from other hotels and lodges in CR, the los lagos... More

The hotel is known for its' pools and that is the reason to go there. There are many pools at different temperatures and you go from pool to pool and relax. You have to go to a separate place to get towels for the pool, but it's only open limited hours, which I learned the hard way. When we got... More

This resort is at the foothill of the Arenal Volcano. It has canopy tours, zip lines. There are about 8 or 10 zip lines of different lengths, and different degree of speed. It also depend on the person, our granddaughter, who is 90 pounds zipped faster than a 200 pound person, for example. There are special zip lines for children,... More

Amazing volcano views, hot springs, nice wildlife gardens, great breakfast buffet. Staff was helpful but could be more friendly, very business-like. We paid $50 more for one extra guest. Overall, great place to relax, close to La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano. Hot springs and water slides were fun, the wet bar was great, although the barman was not friendly at... More
