This was my first time in Costa Rica and my Husband's second time. From the moment we got there till the moment we left, the staff at Hotel Lavas Del Arenal were MORE than accomodating. We purchased a groupon which included all of the tours we did everyday and never had any issues with that. There was a driver to take us where we needed to go every morning and pick up/drop off to the airport. Louis was our main driver and the one who helped us with so much! He was very knowledgeable and extremely nice. The front desk called us a cab anytime we wanted to go into town and were helpful with giving information on the best places to eat/go out at night.
The food at the hotel was very good and breakfast/coffee was served every morning. One of the ladies in the kitchen was so kind enough to even help us get some coconuts off the tree and cut them open for us to drink ... how much better can it get?!
The rooms were very clean, never saw one bug/spider/insect in them. (Arachnophobic here). The air conditioning helped cool the room down but when you leave for the day they do turn it off (CR is very eco friendly) this didn't bother us though. Anything to help the environment! It actually cooled the room too much at night so we just turned it off.
If you have any reservations about going to CR let me just be the first to put them at ease. If you have a chance to go, please do! It's a life changing trip for me and I intend to return very soon. Hoping to drop by Lavas del Arenal to say hello again!
