“Perfecto!”
Reviewed 1 June 2010

From the gateway into the resort we were impressed with our selection.
We are greeted by a beautiful waterfall followed by amazing gardens!
There is a security gate that is guarded 24 hours a day and the guests are
given bracelets to ensure our security.

We stayed in a cabin that was close to everything: pool, restaurant, souvenir shop,
flower gardens...perfect locations.
There are cabins that are further away and are perfect if you are super active, or
have a vehicle for traveling.
The volcano lookout is with in DRIVING distance....you are up for a hike if you want to
walk to the look out....beautiful once you arrive!

Our room was clean and they kept up with towels and making our beds...it was like they were hiding in the closet :)

Dinners were great, but if you had a vehicle it was worth it to drive into town and find a small local business to eat at and shop at for souvenirs.
Always have an umbrella or poncho on hand, the volcano heat causes daily rain showers!!

Beautiful and would stay there again!!!

We loved this hotel so much we stayed here during both of our trips to Costa Rica. This hotel has everything you could want...a pool with natural hot springs, water slides, and a swim-up pool bar; several smaller hot and cool pools; gorgeous gardens; horseback riding; canopy tours; butterfly, crocodile, and tree frog areas; lovely spa facilities; and a great breakfast buffet each morning.

The superior rooms are spacious and have both a front and rear balcony with a view. The property is spacious and the grounds are well-kept with lots of beautiful flowers everywhere. Located just outside of LaFortuna, the location is great. It's a quick taxi ride into town or to area attractions. (And if you need tour or airport transportation, I'd HIGHLY recommend Willy Flores: {--}. He's an excellent driver, reliable, very accommodating, and a LaFortuna local.)

Thinking of going to one of those hot springs resorts? Save your money and just stay at Los Lagos!

I LOVE this place. This was actually my 2nd time staying at Los Lagos having stayed there when we came in 2008. We decided that we would not mess with perfection. The grounds are simply amazing. In 2008 when we arrived, it was already dark so did not see the beauty of the grounds until the next morning. All I can say is WOW. We stayed in the superior rooms facing the volcano both trips. To me, the little extra money for the larger room and view was worth it. The breakfast buffet has good food and good variety. I don't eat meat and there was plenty of stuff for me. Both the pools and hot springs are great. We contemplated checking out Tabacon or Eco Termales hot springs, but with what we had at Los Lagos, decided we didn't need to. They also have a canopy tour right on the property. We did this both in 2008 and 2010. I'm afraid of heights, but this one was totally doable for me. I'll upload some pics, but honestly, no pictures could ever do this place justice.

We had a great time in Los Lagos hotel...The staff was friendly all the time. The rooms were clean and BIG, BIG with a nice view to the volcan Arenal.The hotel is easy to find, it's about 10 minutes from San Carlos down town, easy acces from the rd.
The facilities are gorgeous, great landscaping ,clean and nice pools, a butterflyfarm and also an area where you can find alligators...My son (5 years old) was exited!!!
The best part is the location and the rooms... The least... the rooms are far away from the main office.

Your Resort was amazing. Your staff always professional and friendly.
The rooms are large with average hotel room amenities.
The hotel grounds are amazing!! This place is nothing like we expected!
The resort is so big that it has its own canopy tour on the property, a stable, a volcano observation deck, a number of swimming pools with slides , The hot spring pools were my favorite One of the hot spring pools even has a swim up bar and really fun slide!
We loved the resorts crocodile farm, enclosed butterfly garden, and frog shade house. All that and it has the most amazing views of the Arenal Volcano. I absolutely loved walking the gardens every morning and watching the humming birds all over while listening to the Beautiful birds and monkeys in the Forrest
The Spa was also most Fantastic *****

We got the day pass for the Hot Springs and Pools and we were very surprised at all you get for a little money. We had a ball. The slides were fun and the water temperature could not be beat. There was a pool or a hot spring with a temperature setfor everyone.

The grounds were kept beautiful and clean. It was a pleasure just to walk around and sight see. I definitely will be going back for a stay.
