This place is magical especially for a wedding!! My husband and I along with family and friends all stayed here for our wedding. The minute you step into the resort perched on a hill through a private road is like you were transported to another place. The view of the volcano is seen everywhere and is awe inspiring!! The whole... More

This places deserves more than 5 stars. I have stayed at many resorts in the past. This one stands out the most. It is one of the best resorts I ever stayed in. First, location location. The resort is secluded for those want privacy and yet it closed to Arenal volcano and other excursions around the area. The resort is... More

Dear Rady H, Thank you so much for reviewing The Springs Resort and Spa! Your comments and feedback are very important to us.

Three friends and I stayed at Costa Rica Springs Resort and were completely satisfied from start to end. The resort sits on a property overlooking the Arenal Volcano and the view was absolutely breathtaking. The staff made us feel comfortable and very welcomed from the start.

We weren't sure if the $60 pp fee was worth it for a two-day pass to this resort's hot springs, especially since we had to pay $60 for our children as well (ages 8 and 11). After spending two days there, we were thrilled that we decided to do it! First, enjoying the hot springs is a perfect way to... More

My family and I spent four wonderful nights at The Springs recently. Our room was wonderful and very private. Our adult children stayed in the upstairs loft and my husband and I had the downstairs Master bedroom. The lanai had two hammocks and a lovely view. The staff was fantastic! They were friendly without being intrusive. Most knew our names... More

I can't say enough good things about the springs. The entire property was impeccably maintained, as were the rooms. But the best part was the staff. Every one of them was so nice and helpful.
