I have written very few reviews as there is not much that really surprises me enough to merit an excellent review nowadays, yet this resort is the exception. Starting from the great service provided by Eliecer at the front desk who was always very polite and courteous and tended to our every need, then Kermis our valet who always went... 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. The quickly knew our names and the names of our three kids. They were always willing and eager to help. While they all were great,... More

I visited The Springs with some friends and we absolutely loved it. We went for a bachelor party, but it's good for families and people of all ages. You really don't ever have to leave the property, it's incredibly all inclusive. There are multiple good restaurants, and a few dynamite bars on site. There are about 30 hot springs on... More

This is a terrific hotel for both couples and families. Many people decide to split their time in Costa Rica between the rainforest and the beach. We decided to spend our five days in one place and are very happy we did. The Springs hotel is a beautiful resort with luxurious accommodations, and lots to do both on the property... More

We stayed at another property, but The Springs allows you to come in the evening and enjoy the thermal springs and a dinner. We did this one evening while in the La Fortuna area. The springs were very relaxing! There are many spring pools on the property including a slide through the forest into one of the pools. The evening... More

We went on a family vacation and spent 3 nights at The Springs. It was simply a great spot to stay. I can't say enough about the property and the staff.
