We Stayed at The Springs for 3 nights after spending our first 2 nights at The Nayara Hotel and Spa, and while it was definitely a different experience because of the difference in size/luxury, we would absolutely stay at The Springs again. The resort is so picturesque – from the moment you walk in you’re just in awe of the... More

We visited the resort on a 2 day pass plus Club Rio activities. Like another recent reviewer it was the highlight of an exciting 2 1/2 week trip and one of the best 3 days in 20 years. The experience felt like a dream despite the terrible weather the majority of the time. We thought we wouldn't be able to... More

We only visited the hot springs on a 2-day pass and it was the highlight of our stay near Arenal Volcano. There are not many rooms at the hotel so the hot springs were not crowded. We had the pools to ourselves both nights we visited the springs. Beautiful grounds and pools, very clean and well-maintained. It is off the... More

This is a super choice for families. So much to do and a lovely setting. We booked a family suite with a view of the volcano. The room was very clean and had tons of space. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was a little generic and predictable, but otherwise no complaints!

We just got home and are already booking our trip for next year. The resort and staff are wonderful. The rooms are spectacular. We felt like we had the resort to ourselves. I have two teen boys who never had a dull minute - this is the first time they have actually thanked me for taking them somewhere on vacation.... More

It really was perfect. The staff treated us like royalty. The room was amazing, the bed is the best I have ever slept in. There are so many springs we barely had to share with anyone else. I loved it!

My husband surprised me with a stay at the Springs because I am a huge fan of the television show "The Bachelor". The cast of the bachelor had stayed at this resort in a previous season! It was an amazing stay. We could see the volcano Arenal from our room! The hot springs were very private...sometimes we had a pool... More

We went there for dinner and to go to the spa. What a tremendously wonderful place. It must cost a fortune to stay there. The food, view and staff were wonderful. Very tranquil and relaxing. Luxury, luxury , luxury.
