“A better way to spend an afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

If you prefer to relax for a day, or two, sitting by the pool and Lava's is a better way to spend an afternoon.

“Relaxed Dining by the Pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

We lunched at Lava's and found the food and service good for this type of establishment. The relaxed atmosphere was appropriate to the cuisine, which consisted of burgers, fish-and-chips, nachos, etc. Service was very capable and friendly without being overly familiar. The only negative was the restaurant's proximity to the pool and consequentially the proximity of youth coordinators with megaphones.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

The food that we had was pretty good. Highly recommend the Kalbi Beef BLT. Service was also good and prices were about average for similar type restaurants in the area.

“Lava's was not open yet.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

High Prices could only eat poolside food was decent. Chips & salsa was expensive for the amount you got.
