4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stayed there for four nights. Very nice resort. I would have preferred a room that was not at the top of a steep hill. Hot springs were excellent. Food was very good. Shuttle drivers were very friendly. Not too far from La Fortuna. About $8.00 cab ride to town.

The pools and water slides at Los Lagos are outstanding. Everyone in our party (2 in our sixties, 2 in their forties, and 2 pre-teens) had a terrific time here. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and the view of the Arenal Volcano can be amazing. Unfortunately, we were here in August and, except for the afternoon we arrived, the volcano... More

The hotel grounds are beautiful. The pools and water slides really makes this property stand out from other hotels in this area. Some people at the hotel were visiting using a day pass. The rooms were okay but nothing spectacular. Our room didn't even have a patio to sit outside. The breakfast was pretty good and included many items to... More

We stayed at Los Lagos for 4 nights and we absolutely loved it. The grounds are beautiful and the many pools with their slides were great for the kids. We stayed there as a family of 5 and took the superior room. The room was large enough for the 5 of us and clean. Our room however was a good... More

We stayed here 3 days recently. The breakfast included with the room is a fantastic buffet in a beautiful setting. The rooms are large and comfortable. The pools hot and cold are very nice. I didn't give this a perfect score because some issues like room location are pretty important. If you got a low number like 123, all is... More

Los Lagos is a nice hotel, spread out over many acres. It has bungalows and quasi-apartment blocs and is so large that they have shuttles (free) constantly at your beck and call to get around (the drivers were super cool). The staff is very hospitable and helpful. We traveled with two families (5 kids altogether) for 3 night and it... More

This hotel has some great features but also some significant drawbacks. The good points are: pools and water slides are great for keeping children entertained; on-site mini zoo with interesting creatures ranging from crocodiles to ants which you can visit any time; excellent breakfast buffet; and issues with the room were quickly addressed. Negatives: our room was clean but we... More

You won't need to leave the grounds because there is so much to do here. Everywhere you look the grounds are beautiful. The variety of pools- hot and cold is great and we had no trouble finding a spot to ourselves. Breakfast was great and the restaurant environs just what you imagine a tropical lodge to be. The hike up... More

My family of 11 stayed at Los Lagos for three nights. We were pleased to find that we were given rooms all next to each other. The pools were amazing and the property is even more beautiful than in the pictures. There's nothing like swimming around the heated pools with the volcano staring down at you. Pools and rooms are...
