We had a perfect stay at Lavas del Arenal. Carlos and staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful, ensuring we were well taken care of in every aspect. We booked through Groupon, which included adventure excursions, and all were well-coordinated and planned, with transport directly from the hotel. We ate at the restaurant nearly every night, finding the food to be...

This stay was part of a Groupon package. The hotel and six days of activities were included. Transport from the airport was delayed due to mechanical problems, but was resolved - and we were kept informed - in a little over an hour. Arrival and check in was completed after a long trip from the airport. Initial reaction was a...

We stayed here as part of a Groupon we purchased and could not of been happier. Carlos and his staff treated us like family!

My family and I stayed here for 8 days as part of our Groupon Adrenaline package. After a harrowing 2.5-hour drive from the airport, we arrived at the rural motel. Tip: The drive from the SJO airport is on switchback mountain roads at breakneck speed. Take Dramamine!! First impressions of this motel can make it seem sketchy, but we found...

There isn't really a concierge, but Carlos was very helpful about everything, so it was like having a concierge always there. We had a groupon deal that included lodging here, plus daily excursions to great places in the area. The hotel is in a rural area, and it abuts a jungle-ish wildlife area. A stream runs by the property, and...

We purchased a Groupon deal that included our stay at this resort. The place is not a 5 star place but everything was nice and the place was always cleaned. I loved the beautiful bright flowers that are all over the resort, mainly by the entrance. Although they didn't have a big selection on the menu We loved the food!...
