Coco was the driver that the Springs sent to pick us up in San Jose and we requested him for all of our outings needing transportation. He was very helpful and made us all comfortable. I cannot imagine staying anywhere other than The Springs if we go back to the area. Everyone on the staff was extremely helpful and so... More

We recently stayed for five days in a two-bedroom villa at the Springs. The resort itself is really beautiful. It's very private. It sits a significant distance off the main road and the rooms look directly across the valley at the volcano (the pictures do not do the view justice). There are a ton of hot springs, which are very... More

We finished our family vacation to Costa Rica with a few days at the Springs - incredible place. At first we were a bit worried as the lobby felt like Disneyland but the experience was fantastic. Many things for each of us to do, great food and the nicest staff. Both Donalds (Perdidos Bar and the Sushi Bar) were particular... More

We stayed in a hotel up the road from the Spa and spent an afternoon dipping in all of the wonderful heated pools. The staff was great and the service was excellent. The are many different pools to choose from, some hotter and some not so hot. The best part is that you are allowed to take beverages into the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights last week and it was paradise. The springs were relaxing and plentiful. We had a great time going down the slide and tubing in club rio. The room was perfect and great for a romantic getaway. The view of the volcano was picture perfect. The staff was excellent. Allan was our... More

The Springs was amazing and completely lived up to the reviews. It combined luxury with fun and adventure, which was perfect for traveling with our two kids, 8 and 10. The service was truly exceptional-- everyone was so genuine. The other hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica also had great service, but nowhere near as warm and friendly as... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in April and then moved to the Pacific Coast. The view and hot springs are as beautiful as they look in pictures, even if you don't have a completely clear day. We did the zip lining and hanging bridges through the resort which were equally amazing. I would recommend if you rented a car (like... More

Definitely one of the most beautiful resorts I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy! The Family Suite was perfect for our family with 2 teen-agers - plenty of room and 2 bathrooms. While it could use a few more options for dining in the evening, the attention to detail and customer service more than makes up for this. We... More
