Unbelievable view. Our rooms from the balcony, looked at the Volcano. We did see some red hot rocks flowing in the evening, just spectacular. The hotel is overwelming. From the desk to your room there is a shuttle, and you will need it, its straight up, nice walk down, but coming up is a bear.Rooms were excellent, and very clean.... More

Over Christmas, we stayed at Los Lagos for about a week. It was very nice. The layout of the grounds is very well done. Our room was clean, although it did have a slight odor upon arrival. I'm pretty sure the odor is humidity related as the room was spotless. When not in the U.S., the concept of "resort" is... More

Check-in was quick and easy. The desk staff was helpful with planning activities to do in the area. Upon entering our room, we noticed a strong "urine" odor (the resort allows pets, so we think that might be the cause of the odor). After turning on the air and leaving the door open a bit, the smell faded so it... More

Not a bad place but the staff at the front desk were VERY arrogant. The breakfast buffet was fantastic but the dinner was a little pricey. Overall for the $70 a night we paid it was a nice place.

What a joy it was to end my 6 week journey in Costa Rica at Los Lagos. The rooms were quiet and spacious with spectacular views. The breakfast buffet was the best of my entire trip. It was a pleasure to sit in the hot pool and view the volcano in full eruption. Lots of trails and on one hike... More

The Los Lagos is a great place to see the Arenal Volcano erupting. We just got back from CR, and spent 3 days at the Los Lagos. It's property is gigantic, and the rooms are rated based on how close (how far up the mountain) you are to the volcano. But... get a rental car to drive up and down... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Los Lagos for three nights in May, 2006. We really enjoyed our affordable stay (approximately $65/night, double occ., including b-fast). The resort has warm and cool pools (we found the warm pools too hot during the day when the sun was beating on us, but nice once the sun set), water slides, a wet... More
