My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we were blown away at how beautiful the property is. There are hot springs everywhere! Including a water slide. We also felt like this hotel was very private so that was extra special. Our room was beautiful and had a ton of great amenities including an amazing view of Arenal... More

The hot springs here are great. Sooooo relaxing. Fairly quiet. There are a boat load of pools, so you can go off and keep to yourself if you want. A couple bars as well for you to order drinks. However, they are $$$$$ drinks... you'll rack up an easy 10USD per drink. Beer is still fairly cheap though. Tons of... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of our honeymoon and it is the perfect place for couples. The hot springs are incredible, with many to choose from. The hidden hot springs, just off the main hotel, are quite secluded and very beautiful. However, the water is not very hot, its is more warm. Also the the breakfast is very... More

We visited Costa Rica for our 30th anniversary and The Springs Resort and Spa was incredible! As other reviewers have mentioned, the trip from the Airport to the resort is windy and bumpy, but that is Costa Rica! When we checked in we mentioned our anniversary and they surprised us with a wonderful bottle of wine. Our room was beyond... More

The hotel is pretty, luxurious rooms, staff sort of too much in your face, they mingle too much with guest and it's kind of fake too. For the price we payed per night !!!!! it should be all inclusive to say the least. They don't mention that breakfast cost 18000 for buffet and non buffet is 9500, so you sort... More

This was out second trip to Costa Rica and we specifically came back to stay at the Springs. Our fist visit was on our honeymoon and they treated us very well. We were certainly not disappointed this time either; however, our experience was considerably different this time as we brought our two year old daughter. Our daughter loved the pools,... More

We spent an amazing 3 nights at The Springs and would recommend it highly. The team are fantastic, all going out if their way to provide an exceptional service, going over and above their role to help - Nicole in concierge services and Jason on the front desk helped us immensely to reorganise our trip after the Springs. ***A few...

We purchased this hotel on Groupon for $699 for 4 nights stay and 20% off at the Spa and if I ever see it on there again, I will buy it! We flew into San Jose airport- the hotel sent a driver to pick us up ($150) was about a 2 1/2 hour drive but could be less if we... More

Amazing! As a frequent traveller often staying in 5* resorts I thought The Spring would be similar to past experience pretty average. The Spring exceeded my expectations in every way possible. Room was beautiful very unique, my partner (who is hard to please) was speechless and very impressed. The service was exceptional the staff went above and beyond to accommodate... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few days and everything was simply fantastic. Everything you could imagine on a postcard was present here. From water slides to infinity pools and even a swim up bar. These are hot springs as well so natural hot spring water is channeled into the pools. Really fun place to explore and hang... More
