All I can say is wow, what a view. It is an incredible setting for a hotel. The service is wonderful. A top notch hotel in all respects, particularly if you are a family. I only wish we could stay a little pager to enjoy all the activities at the Club Rio (water tubing, horseback riding, animals). The springs are... More

This place was a nice weekend stop for my parents and I; the setting is really pretty unfortunately the days we stayed was foggy and we didnt get to see the Volcano. The springs are very nice, a little crowded but surrounded by beautiful scenary.

We travel a lot but very rarely leave reviews. This place was so amazing that we feel obligated to spread the word. The staff in general are beyond friendly and courteous. They seemed to anticipate our needs in advance. This place just gets costumer service. Jason at the front desk went out of his way to accommodate us and made... More

We stayed at the Springs Resort and Spa for our Christmas holiday and had a wonderful time. This resort is absolutely amazing, so much detail and thought was put into this resort. The setting is breathtaking with the amazing views and tropical foliage all around the resort. Our rooms were gorgeous with views of Arenal volcano, we could literally lie... More

We stayed at the Springs for two days and regretted that we had not booked three. The setting was a three-generation family vacation of which this resort was part. The facilities are quite vast; the possibilities amazing. One of our regrets is that we booked outside activities; in retrospect, we could easily have used the Rio Club offerings and been... More

I had the best time at the springs this spring. Pools pools pools. If you like to swim and relax, this is the place to you. Hot tubS include natural hot springs from the scenic volcano near by. Swim up bars are all around the pools so you will never be thirsty. I guarantee the kids will have a great... More

We stayed here all day after our rafting trip with Wave expeditions and fell in love. We had the springs to ourselves during the morning and the lunch provided as part of our tour was exceptional-homemade chicken soup with egg, steak with fried onions and chimichurri sauce and veg's and tres leches cake for dessert. All wonderful and our server... More

Ok, so I have to say we were so spoiled here. We had the Villa Calatea. Unbelievable. This place is over the top. Everyone is so nice. The grounds are beautiful. Georgi (I know I spelled it wrong!)I believe she is in upper management. She went out of her way to accommodate my family. Amazing. I have no words to... More

No need to go anywhere else! The welcome party was outstanding, staff goes above and beyond and food (for all meals ) was delicious! They have over 18 springs (pools), they each have a thermostat since some are warmer than others. The room (#202) was way more comfortable than anything I would have imagined (we were in a family suite).... More

As we heard The Bachelor was filmed at The Springs resort and we checked out the beauty of this place on the internet before we left home, we were anxious to see it in person. It turned out to be every bit as beautiful as it appeared on-line, however the service and hospitality of everyone we met there was the... More
