We stayed at the Lavas Tacotal for 4 days and we loved it. We got the last room of the building and we had an amazing view of the volcano. Room were nice and clean. Staff was friendly and very efficient. They organized few trips for us. Food was great although we only stayed for breakfast (included in the price). The hotel is not close to shops and you cannot walk to La Fortuna although staff will arrange cab. One advise DO not go for dinner at the steak house across the street. The steak was as hard as stone and quite pricey

Hotel was great. We had a room that was facing the Arenal Volcano. The view from the room (and balcony) was spectacular. Hotel staff was very friendly and extremely nice. The hotel is quite far (not walking distance) from la Fortuna but hotel will provide transportation (for a fee) to La Fortuna or around the area. breakfast was good and my kids loved the swimming pool. Tip: don't go for dinner at the steakhouse across the street. SUPER PRICEY!

Loved the private bungalow. Sheets were soft, mattress was very good, bathroom was roomy. And the view was worth a million. My son and I stayed at this hotel between our Spanish immersion classes in August 2008. We wished that the classes were in La Fortuna, so we could stay there the whole time.

All in all, a good experience. Lavas is right at the base of the Arenal Volcano. We had foggy weather, so I can't comment on the view. Excellent breakfast included with rate. This is not a buffet, but a full, unrestricted menu, with your choice cooked to order. Outstanding. Hotel is far enough out of town to offer the''best of both worlds'' so to speak. La Fortuna is a bustling little town, so it was nice to be 5 minutes away, but only 5 minutes away. Hotel desk clerk was super helpful in booking excursions (we went horseback riding to the waterfall, and booked an evening at the more upscale hot springs at the newest spot). Also, they let us check out late, after we returned from our horseback trip, which was a godsend to be able to shower, etc. This may have been due to a lack of reservations, but whatever the case, they extended the courtesy. Bungalows are very basic, but also very private. The standard rooms have more amenities, but offer a lot less privacy. Personal preference...

Hotel as nice simple, clean rooms, food is great at restaurant. A new administration is coming in, seems they are improving grounds, services and such.
