    Excellent full breakfast in open air dining area. The staff is of the highest quality and service (Michelle, Rosita, Isabel, Richard, & others) These people went miles beyond the expected during the COVID-19 pandemic. Without their help we would not have been able to get a change in our return plane reservations. They made the trip special.

    I'd have to stretch to find something we didn't like. If you have children be aware the pool is a small above ground unit. Still a treat after a day hiking or being in a beach location. For some people the distance to the malecon may be an issue but for us the 15 minute separation from the crowd gave us a piece of tranquillity.

    Our room was really big with four beds (not necessary), WiFi and breakfast was okay- nothing special.

    Our room was next to the street and next to the facility - or storeroom so it was really noisy most of the time. Furthermore they have a building site at the moment so the noise starts early in the morning- so no silence at all. For this price - no way (especially at the moment... maybe in an other room its better)

    The staff are wonderful. Very helpful & all around great! They help you set up drivers and tours and are so warm and welcoming. We loved being there!

    The shower is either freezing or scalding hot.

    I really liked this place! The room was really good and very comfortable. There was cleaning every day. There is a place to sit outside of the room, which was good. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Location was very good as well - up to 5 minutes to a see market and 10-15 minutes to the pier.

    I liked everything!

    The property itself feels like a little oasis from the relatively busy 'city.' Upon walking in the front gate, you are in a courtyard which has a peaceful garden, 3 comfortable hammocks in which to rest and plenty of other sitting areas. The activity at this property feels like the perfect amount of quiet with just the right bit of life. At night, there were sweet twinkling lights, making the outdoor space inviting even in the evening! The family that owns Lava House is lovely, always someone around willing to help. The cook/cleaner is very sweet as well. The rooms were cleaned daily, beds comfortable, shower water pressure good and plenty of space to spread out a bit. Breakfast was in the 'main house' and was served buffet stye, although eggs were sometimes brought straight to the table. There was hot coffee and juice, fresh local bread, eggs, cheese, meat, granola, homemade yogurt and fruit. The tables were already set when you arrived and it was an extremely pleasant spot to sit and chat and prep for the day! I honestly could not say enough good things about Lava House! We have been traveling for about a year as a family and if every city had a Lava House, I wouldn't complain. If you need a home base for Santa Cruz, this should be it!

    Not a thing -- loved everything.
