After 30 hours on the road, we reached Los Lagos, our resort hotel. Eagerly, we changed into swimsuits and headed straight for the hot springs. The volcano-warmed mineral waters of these springs is soothing and healing. The resort has 5 hot spring pools, 2 cool-water pools, 2 cool plunges, 3 water slides (1 hot), and 2 kiddie pools. One pool... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights. We really enjoyed the hot springs and pools, and especially the swim-up bar. It was a great way to begin our vacation and relax. The rooms were very cute and private, although the beds were not top quality. We went to see the ant farm, frog farm, butterfly garden and crocodiles,... More

The numerous hot springs pools were great for relaxation and smaller pools for privacy. The slide in the main pool was fun from kids to adults. The breaksfast was a FEAST, excellent quality food. The grounds contained a small butterfly and frog exhibit to give the traveler a taste. When weleft we felt rejuvenated. Beautiful place to stay.

It was okay - loved the leaf cutter ant exhibit (it's not to be missed!), but the rooms had a hospital room feel to them and the restaurant staff made us feel like we were dealing with used-car salesmen, never felt comfortable eating there. The grounds are beautiful and Los Lagos has a great view of the volcano. Fridge and... More

THE GOOD - Hotel property was very big. There are lots of pools to choose from, and there are a couple of fun waterslides. There are also several hiking paths and zipling available on the hotel property - the most popular pool is easily the "hot springs" pool..its conveniently located by the bar. We met a few couples that had... More

This hotel charges people to go to the restaurant to look at the menu. I was standing in the lobby when someone came in to ask for the restaurant. The receptionist said it would be $10 to go on the grounds to check ti out. Of course he was upset. I found the same attitude. Nothing but charges and an... More

Took our teenage sons (15&18) here we ALL had a blast! the water slides were the huge hit, they played like sea otters all day & night. Our room was a little casita at the top of the property. which overlooks the valley & Volcan Arenal. It was beautiful, clean & quiet. There are many pools nestled through out the... More

This place was very average. Front desk staff seemed pretty annoyed that we showed up to check-in, but the restaraunt staff and pool side staff were great. The room had a broken toilet, a broken cabinet door, and a huge brown stain running down the wall from the air conditioner. The beds weren't too comfy and all the lights in... More

Not a bad hotel, but we could not get hot water. The front desk (good luck finding their ext) said they were sending someone, but never did. After several tries, we just took cold showers. The large, heated pool was nice and the nature park (Crocs, butterflies, ants, etc.) was kinda neat, but taking ice cold showers really put a... More

This hotel was the BEST!! The staff were sooooo accomodating. Our first night was not so great due to very noisy and inconsiderate neighbors. The next day we were moved to a quieter room with an even better view of the volcano and over the entire area. The rooms easily accomodated a family of 5(superior rooms) Just hanging out on... More
