The hot springs here were delightful and one of the highlights of our trip. A ten minute walk through the woods from the resort, there are several natural pools of varying temperature, and a bar selling cocktails and hot drinks. A great experience to be sipping margaritas in the warm pool as the sun went down! As for the resort,... More

This was an average place with everything you need. The rooms were very nice, one small problem the bedding needs to be updated, the pillows were lumpy and you could see the linen was very thin. The restaurant had excellent meals and the breakfast buffet was nice. The staff was very helpful in the restaurant and the hotel staff was... More

This is one of my favorite hotels in the area. It is modest - so those looking for fancy need to go elsewhere - but the rooms are clean and comfortable and the best thing about the hotel are the amazing hot springs!!! A 7 minute walk through the humid forrest brings you to a river and rustic and comfortable... More

We were in Aguas Zarcas and looking for a one night accommodation. We checked three places, and while this property was the more expensive of the three, it was the best overall value. Rate (was same for single or double!) included a large but a bit outdated room that will sleep 3, two breakfasts and two admissions to the hot... More

Before I begin I'd like to point out that Termales del Bosque is located between the towns of Ciudad Quesada and Aguas Zarcas, and is not in the immediate vicinity of Arenal Volcano. I recently stayed here for a second time, just over a year after my first visit. I think some of the poor reviews that have been written... More

Dark felty rooms, a/c licking water under bed, bugs, cracked tile in bathroom, the shower is just 3 tinny threads of water that you cant regulate temperature. Sheets stinks. It is a place for truckers. Caquero!

This place is in need of repair. No hot water in the bathroom sink. Show trickled, Rooms not clean. Food was good, buffet style. We were members of a Tour group and have no idea if they had saved all of the bad rooms for us or not. I would not stay there again.

What a great experience to visit a hot springs under the jungle canopy, opportunity to have a massage at a great price which included breakfast and dinner. The hot springs were natural stone pools beside the river each one a little cooler than the one above it. Drinks were served at a small pool side area or in the swim... More

We spent three days at this location, arriving late Friday and departing on Monday. We were the only people at the lodge when we left - people come for the weekend. When we arrived we checked our room and quickly found out the A/C did not work and there were no screens on the windows - bugs! The staff worked... More

This was a nice little place to visit and enjoy the hot springs. It was a little hike to get to and from the springs but totally worth it. Once in the springs we could order drinks and light refreshments. Various temperatures in each pool. Had a facial in their spa area, which was fabulous! Our room was not the... More
