Stayed here two nights. Was able to check in at 2 pm, no late checkout. Room is smallish, bathroom okay. A/C cover missing, as was light fixture cover. 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. Reception staff not... More

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... More

This hotel is beautifully landscaped and has lots of birds, the red ones will eat out of your hand! The rooms are pretty average, the swimming pools are nice, and the food is pretty good. You have take a taxi into town though, no shuttle provided. It is right in front of the volcanoe.

This is a very nice choice of resort around the base of Arenal. Plenty of accommodations and excursions on the huge property. The pools are awesome, so are the water slides and wet bar. So are the massages and piña coladas, so is the awesome view and the grounds, so is the enormous and delicious breakfast. Free wifi works across... More

Our first choice hotel in Arenal was a nearby property, The Springs Resort, but it was full when we reserved. However, we were not at all disappointed with our stay at the Los Lagos Hotel Spa & Resort. Los Lagos was excellent in many respects. We were impressed initially by the beautiful, well-kept grounds. The property is spacious and beautiful.... More

The entry driveway lets you know this is going to be a beautiful place to stay. The volcano is in the clouds but still fills the view as you drive up through several turn offs for terraced rows of attractively landscaped rooms. The rooms are large, clean and nice, but pretty basic. Good beds and showers. You enter rooms from... More

This is a great place to stay at the base of volcano. The resort is hundreds of acres, with plenty to do. I love the hot spring pool with is constantly 90 degrees. The slides were crazy. The rooms were nice and spacious. I would definitely recommend staying here.

This was the first place we stayed in during our Costa Rica trip, and when we left we all agreed that it would be hard to beat. First of all, much of this is laid out like a village. Rooms are spread out across many buildings, and one has a few minutes' walk to get to the main services. This... More
