The property does not have a view of the volcano as advertised nor are the rooms fully complete. No bathroom mirrors, glasses in the room, or adequate lighting. Reservation processing confusing and wifi almost impossible. Parking a real problem as is dirt road to the property.

I stayed at Lavas del Arenal for one night since I was coming for a wedding nearby. They charged us $175 for one room with two beds. A room that shouldn't had been more that $90, since it is very very poor. It has a tiny air conditioner that is not enough to cool the whole area and not enough windows that you can open to use natural air. The bathroom is big, but has no place to hang towels or put your belongings. They only offer you liquid soap on a dispenser on the wall, no shampoo or anything ... Read more

Positives: mostly friendly staff, free breakfast, the room is clean when you get it Negatives: the food here is TERRIBLE! Pretty much the only reason we ate the breakfast was because it was free and conveniently located steps from our room. Nobody ever cleaned our rooms after we got there, we had to ask for new towels twice before being given them, the pool was full of dead bugs, the hotel's kind of in the middle of nowhere so cabs to town and back were roughly $15 or more each time...the list ...

We did this as a group on it was what was expected from online. Its not an extravagant resort but they booked so much fun stuff for us we weren't there but at night. The room was ALWAYS cleaned and ready. We liked the vibe if your going to sit around a resort drinking drinks all day not the place for you.But if looking for adrenaline in costa rica they set it all up for you. Didn't have to worry about anything but showing up front to catch the ride they scheduled.

this hotel came with our groupon. We had a great time but the hotel was a little less than we were hoping for. No one spoke English, at all. So communication with times for our tours, paying, etc was very difficult even with the little Spanish we could speak. Next there is no real restaurant..it is just one person and a grill. The food is manageable but for what you pay, the food in the city is WAY better...and that's the other thing, you cannot walk to la fortuna...you have to take a taxi. This... Read more

We first set eyes on Lavas Del Arenal after a crazy long drive from the airport in San Jose. It was gorgeous, secluded but at the same time accessible to the town in 10 minutes by cab. Kathia was so lovely and helpful. She organized our trip to the beach in Jaco and gave us advice about where to go and where to stay! She was always available at the front desk and answered all our questions and made sure we were loving our stay! The breakfast was authentic, now if you are use to a big American br... Read more

We loved our stay at the Hotel Lavas de Arenal. It is a very simple resort, but it is a beautiful setting. The rooms have all you should need for a Costa Rican Adventure trip and they are incredible at helping book any activity you could want in the area. They provide a nice breakfast every morning. The staff is very helpful and friendly. It is helpful to know some Spanish, but without it you can survive. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

My girlfriend and I just got back from an 8 night 9 day trip to Costa Rica where we stayed in 3 different hotels ranging from the country side, beach side and the inner city. We are 29 and 28 years of age and are adventure seekers not party seekers. I have to say that Hotel Lavas del Arenal was easily our favorite. The hotel is tucked away so if you enjoy a little privacy after a long day of adventure this is is a perfect place for that. The hotel itself is gorgeous. It has a very nice pool th... Read more

My friend and I purchased a Groupon which included an awesome adventure package consisting of zip lining, rafting, hot springs, etc. and a 4 night stay at Hotel Lavas. When we arrived to the hotel we were greeted by the receptionist, Katya, who we fell in love with from the beginning. Although we didn't speak much spanish, and she spoke even less English, she worked so hard to throughly answer any questions we had by using her computer, writing down information, or drawing pictures. She was so f... Read more
