this hotel was the most unbelievably attractive hotel made with all natural elements and fine craftsman ship. Honestly- breath taking. We went to Four Seasons in Guanacaste afterwards- and it can not compare. The downside- is the food is terrible! we ended up eating pop tarts for breakfast our second morning. te staff was very friendly- and reccommended some places... More

there was so much to do in and around the hotel, I wish we had more than the one night we stayed at The Springs. It is stunning, great for families during the day as well as extremely romantic at night in the 18 different hot springs. They had lava tours, ATV tours, animal tours, horseback riding and the hotel... More

Our group, two couples (one in their 50s and the other in their 30s), two friends (40s), and two teenagers (18) made the trip a couple of weeks ago. The hotel made arrangements for us to be picked up at the airport...as soon as we cleared customs and walked outside, there was our driver holding a card up with our... More

The Springs resort and spa was an incredible new hotel that was very private, relaxing and on our must return list for travel plans. It is out of the way and very private. We had a view of the volcano from every room, pool and hot spring. The staff was very polite and resourceful. They suggested various day excurions, we... More

We had a fantastic vacation at The Springs Resort & Spa with our 2 children, 7 & 9 years old. This resort has something for everyone!! As we walked to the reception area we were immediatly taken by the breathless view of the Arenal Volcano. The resort is perfectly situated so that every room has an amazing view. The staff... More

This is, simply put, the most amazing property I've ever stayed at. We were fortunate enough to be there while they were still under construction, so there weren't a lot of other guests. It felt like we had the entire property to ourselves, with almost no construction noise or inconvenience. The Springs is a beautiful property, lush and spacious. The... More

My husband and I spent 6 nights at The Springs Resort & Spa mid-May for our honeymoon. We had an absolutely AMAZING time and were sad to leave. The property is beautiful with unbelieveable views of the volcano, whether we were at the pools, in the restaurants or in our room. The Perdidos hot springs were extremely relaxing, we grabbed...

If you like Spas and Hot tubs and a scenic view, this is a great place. We choose The Springs as our intro to Costa Rica. It took us about 3 hrs to drive from San Jose. The resort staff is very accommodating especially the restaurant and bar staff. The pools all have different temperatures and are spread out among... More

We stayed in family suite - the most beatiful room with direct volcano view. Keep in mind that off season prices could be negotiated on the spot by 30 percent. Sushi bar is great. Staff is friendly and accomodating. Perfect relaxation and views.
