The service was beyond any expectations especially considering the incredible value for money. Staff were friendly and extremely hospitable. Breakfast was delicious and although no wi-if in rooms, the level of service compensates. Wi fi available in reception/restaurant area - it's a great speedy internet service. We felt like we were leaving our family home on departure.
I stayed here last weekend with my partner, and we had a great time. We had done a bit of searching for accommodation online but not found much available in the area at a reasonable price, so we called in at Lava Tacotal by pure chance. We showed up late at night in the pouring rain with no reservation and were very happy with what we found! Good service, a nice spacious room at a good price, beautiful grounds, great breakfast and a nice location! If you don't need absolute luxury but want a pleasant, quiet place to stay, this is the place.
From our lovely cabin, a gorgeous view of Arenal. The view is wonderful. The grounds of Lavas Tocotal are extremely well kept, and a joy to wonder through. The staff are very professional and helpful.
Suggestion: be sure and visit Ecotermales----the real, rustic hot springs! Go around four in the afternoon, stay for dinner---and enjoy the magic---monkeys included.
