Great staff and breakfast. The rooms need to be upgraded.

Lavas del Arenal is located in Peñas Blancas. Kalambu Hot Springs is a popular attraction and the area's natural beauty can be seen at Arenal Volcano National Park and La Fortuna Waterfall. Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park and Arenal Adventure World are also worth visiting.
Lavas del Arenal is a small hotel situated just ouside of the main town in La Fortuna. There are plenty of benefits to staying at Lavas del Arenal. The first that I noticed is that the common areas of the hotel are surrounded by beautiful plant life, various birds, and a stream in the back. There is a pool available that wasn't overly occupied during my stay. I used it in the morning, so there wasn't actually anyone but me, but even in the afternoon, I only ever saw a couple people using it. The owner and the kitchen staff do a great job. The owner in particular was helpful in suggesting activities to do around La Fortuna, and went the extra mile in ensuring that I got to my destinations on time. They serve a complementary breakfast, which consists of rice and beans or pancakes, eggs, fruit, and a yogurt-like dip. Dinner is also available, though it is not complementary. The rooms themselves are simplistic, though you should be aware of this prior to showing up based on the budget pricing. Mine had a single bed, a mini fridge, air-conditioning, and a bathroom. An unexpected perk was getting to play with the owners puppy Mia. One of the friendliest dogs around! I would have no problem suggesting other people stay at Lavas Del Arenal. Just be aware that you'll be taking a taxi into town, which can be up to 5000 colones.
