Beautiful grounds and nice, clean rooms. Very nice and accommodating staff. Good breakfast in the morning and gorgeous views. Also a nice restaurant across the street.
Muy lindo hotel, pero con ciertos inconvenientes
Erol Vargas Hernandez
El hotel es muy acogedor y la atención en la recepción fue excelente, y la habitación muy limpia y acogedora, no obstante hubo algunos asuntos que no me gustaron:
1. La atención recibida en el restaurante por parte del mesero fue muy fría y descortés. El día 14 de febrero, hubo una cena especial, se ofrecieron 2 platillos por parte de recepción, pero en el momento de la velada, únicamente nos ofrecieron 1, sin opciòn. El precio no iba acorde con la calidad de la comida y con lo prometido.
2. En el desayuno, el gallo pinto estaba muy frío, y le faltaba sabor a la comida.

Fantastic View

I traveled on an EF (Education First) Tour with 4 other students and 3 teachers and we stayed at 5 different hotels all over the beautiful country of Costa Rica. By far Lavas Tacotal was my favorite. The rooms were clean, and the meals served were delicious. Also having a great location to visit the small town near by and the Baldi Hot Springs. The best thing about Lavas Tacotal is waking up in th e morning and seeing the SPECTACUALR view of the Arenal Volcano. If I traveled to Costa Rica again I would definatly plan to stay at Lavas Tacotal.... (read more)
