The location is about the only nice thing about this place. This was my third time visiting the area and usually I stay at Baldi. I figured with a larger group I would give Los Lagos a go. The resort from the street looks amazing, but do not be too fooled. I found that the service really was terrible. The...

On or trip to Costa Rica we stayed at this hotel and it was an amazing experience for the whole family. The hot springs are just great and the pool area is great for the kids with a water slide. The grounds are really nice to walk around. We got the superior room and it was really nice and comfortable...

This was our first stop in Costa Rica and we loved it! The grounds are beautiful, the pools were great, slides were a lot of fun--but some too fast for us! Our room was way up the hill and took the van back and forth. It came pretty quickly after we called. Rooms are basic, but you don't come here...

The hotel grounds are well-manicured and the hot springs pools were the most outstanding features to me. They used concrete to landscape waterways, etc. instead of natural materials so it gives you the impression of a theme park versus a natural area. The price far exceeded the quality. There is no wireless internet service, or coffee in the rooms (or...

My family of four loved this hotel. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat if ever back in La Fortuna. The grounds are lovely with many cool things like the crocodiles, butterfly, and frog exhibits. There is also a swinging bridge and ziplines. The best part was the the pools and waterslides. My kids loved these and used them extensively....

We chose this hotel for the hot springs, water slides, and huge property. The kids loved the water slides and we were not disappointed with the spectacular views of the volcano and lovely property. The rooms are clean but basic. We spent all of our time outside on excursions or on our deck so it didn't really matter that the...

After 11 zip-lines with Los Canyones, we enjoyed a couple of hours playing in the pools at Los Lagos. Beautiful landscaping and various temperatures of the pools made this experience enjoyable. Unfortunately, one of the water slides was not open which is important when you have a 10-year old boy. One reason we chose this zip-lining excursion was to visit...

The amenities at this hotel were incredible! The kids loved the pools with slides and my husband and I, greatly enjoyed the various hot springs. The kids also loved the butterfly and crocodile exhibits. Unfortunately both the frog and ant exhibits were closed during our stay, but I'm sure we would have loved those.
