We stayed at Los Lagos after spending a week on the coast at a family wedding. Although it rained very hard as we drove around Lake Arenal, Los Lagos was like an oasis of calm.
8 of us travelled and we had two rooms which were delightful. It was high above the main hotel building and restaurant with a lovely view of the valley below, which we appreciated much better after dark.
The restaurant was delightful and the staff made the children very much at home, after a long day in the vehicle.
Service was relaxed and friendly and the food was excellent.
Relaxing in the hot pools was the perfect end to a long days travel. I guess the relative remoteness of Los Lagos is part of its charm, but the drive is a little difficult for those unused to narrow twisting roads.
I notice that some reviewers have given the hotel a less than positive review. My wife and I have travelled to many parts of the world, and cannot understand what else one would look for in a hotel, bearing in mind that this is a hotel in the tropics and away from the city.
