Stayed at The Springs with my family and a friend's. What an awesome place! It's a haven in the jungle. A number of pools, fed by the hot springs underground - you can start in the one that's at 87 degrees and progress to warmer and warmer ones till you get in the one at 102 degrees. The staff is...

My wife and I had a great experience at the Springs for our Honeymoon. We did 4 nights in Arenal (The Springs Resort) and then 4 nights in Manuel Antonio (I wrote a review of The Gaia). The service at The Springs was fantastic and they did a fabulous job of making us feel special and they went out of... More

Wow! This place is also a hotel. I didn't know that. This place is gorgeous. If we come back to Costa Rica this is where is like to stay. Plenty of hot springs and pools. We purchased an excursion to their hot springs and dinner. The dinner was buffet style. They have a great wine selection. Had an Argentinian pinot... More

My husband and I visited The Springs and went white water kayaking, took a hike up the volcano and did the hanging bridges tour through the rainforest. We didn't get to do rappelling but I heard great things about it and would have done it if the schedule allowed. The service at the resort is fantastic and the rooms are... More

The Springs is wonderful, even in the rain. The service is awesome and the pools are so much fun. We were there for the first 3 days of our honeymoon and it was nice to acclimate to Costa Rica in a place where everyone spoke English and we didn't have to plan anything. Pros: staff, amazing view, rooms, grounds, activities... More

Gerald and Roberto from Club Rio quick think saved me from almost drowning (I'm not a good swimmer), the staff thoughtout the hotel is beyond friendly and helpful, and the hotel is just stunning! This is the first trip... More

This place is not all inclusive, but the food is above and beyond anything you would get from an all inclusive resort. There are hot springs all over the hotel which make for personal jacuzzis! The place is just great. Amazing view of the Arenal Volcano from the balcony. They also have an activities center close by with plenty to... More

First time in Costa Rica and I am spoiled forever. The Springs was more than I anticipated, the services was beyond reproach, the food was wonderful with an amazing presentation, the spa was indulgent with massage, treatments, sauna and steam room. And the most amazing part was the multiple natural hot springs on site with temperatures from 88 to 103... More

I have never felt the need to write a review but I am writing this while still at the resort. I am a seasoned traveler and expect the quality of service to equal the cost of the stay. I have been here 2 days and already the following has occurred: The spa, while beautiful, lacks the service one would expect... More
