We stayed at Lomas del Volcan for three nights during our three weeks in Costa Rica. The little Costa Rican huts (rooms) were very nice and made even more special by the tropical grounds and fantastic views of the volcano. The location of the resort made it an easy hike to town in La Fortuna where we could walk to grocery store, bars, and many nice sodas with great affordable typical food. We ate at the hotel each breakfast and found at that you need to get there early as this hotel seems to fill it rooms with buses full of tourists that come in late and leave early. When we got down to breakfast the buffet was almost empty and it didn't seem like the kitchen was restocking. At in the restaurant one evening and thought the food was good and reasonably priced. Once again the bus had just got in and restaurant was packed…..not a bad thing, but you may want to work around the bus crowds.
Biggest complaint was at check in when we were given a room with two beds. I booked this hotel four months in advance with a very special note that it was our 35th anniversary trip and a king was a must. At check in they told us they had king beds but one was not available. They showed no record of my request……..yet I had a hard copy of my booking.com notation of this request and that didn't seem to make any difference. Didn't even really get an apology or anything….just an excuse of no king bed. Out of six hotels in CR this was the only one that our booking.com request was not noted or granted. Kind of spoiled the stay here. We made due.
This is why only three stars. Also had an ant problem in the room….big ones in the shower and little ones on the sink. Notified the front desk at check out.
