I went to The Springs Resort and Spa in La Fortuna in June 2011 to celebrate my birthday. Although I was excited to check the place out after seeing it on The Bachelorette, the road leading into it is quite deceiving because it's very rough terrain, but then opens up to this beautiful resort! The hotel is gorgeous. It's fairly... More

Set on a hillside overlooking Arenal Volcano, The Springs is a beautiful property with 18 pools, all but one with hot springs pumped directly into the pools. The main pool is a regular chlorine pool with a very nice swim-up bar and great volcano views. The developers and owners did an excellent job of design, architecture, and detail. We stayed... More

This resort offers fine dining, hot springs, and beautiful panoramic views of lush Costa Rican countryside. And a view of a fantastic volcano from every room. Luxurious rooms with exotic hardwood furniture and paneling, walk-in showers, granite and tile bathrooms with jacuzzi tubs. The staff caters to your every whim - even babysitting service. Super courteous - I never heard... More

Back after 4 days at the Springs Resort. Family loved it. Stayed in Villa Calatae: 3000 sq ft villa was huge and supplied with a golf cart to use (very helpful getting tired kids up the hill to the main resort). Springs are warm and well spread through thick and beautiful jungle. And NO BUGS! Not one bug bite for... More

We loved everything about our stay especially the attention to detail. Free Internet always gives an added good feeling. The stairs from the accommodation to the hotel may be difficult for some.

This was our second stay at this drop dead gorgeous hotel. It is truly a breathtaking spot in paradise. The rooms are very nicely done with cozy comfortable beds and every room has an amazing view of the volcano. The Springs are beautiful with waterfalls and lush gorgeous tropical landscape. We also spent some time at the new area of... More

We arrived in San Jose Costa Rica after a 5.5 hour flight from Newark and then had a 3 hour drive to the Springs Resort.. The resort is beautiful and unlike any other we have ever stayed. The resort was reportedly full, but we did not see lots of people around. We had 3 families including 6 adults and 4... More
