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 ...

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

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 De Arenal after purchasing a Groupon Adrenaline Pacakage. The hotel is in the highlands of Costa Rica, 2 hrs north of San Jose Airport. Part of the deal included the shuttle to and from the airport in which I had the same driver and hotel employee Carlos. Carlos is awesome, we love him! Very professional, safe driver and even took us to a SODA (cheap but good restaurants) off the road. The hotel is small not sure how many rooms but the most maybe 20-30. The property was... Read more

This hotel was a bit of a "rustic" surprise. In the states it would probably be rated a 2-3 star hotel. What it lacks in sparkle and modern upgrades is made up by the amazing staff. Brian was always smiling, helpful and accommodating. He spoke pretty good english and was easy to communicate with. Katia did not speak any english, but was just as helpful and kind. Both Katia and Brian worked hard to make sure we had tour information, our transportation was on time and that we were having a g... Read more
