I titled this review, "too nice", because we did not leave! This is far and away the nicet resort I have ever stayed at. The view of the volcano is awesome and very interesting. It is in a unique location in that you have a view of both the green side, and the active side. Although many people say they... More

We spent 3 days and 4 nights at the Springs Resort and Spa. We were in one of the Casa's and we were blown away when we checked in and saw it. Everything was amazing. They were new, clean, roomy. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Restaurants were good. We wished we could stay longer. We really did not... More

If all the reviews that you have read about the Springs Resort in La Fortuna Costa Rica have not made you book your reservations directly with the Springs Resort this review will certainly pursuade you. They say that a picture says a thousand words and yet pictures do not do this resort justice. It is far too beautiful and much... More

We had not orginally planned on staying at this resort. Our plans were to stay at the Peace Lodge owned by the same people, but when the earthquake caused damage to the Peace Lodge area they offered to move us to their new property for the same price (a fantastic offer). We had in our plans of this vacation to... More

Me, my wife, brother and his wife went to The Springs to try their "hot" springs. I was VERY disappointed in the temperature of the pools. There was only one pool that was above 100. With all the other hotels being very close to the road, this hotel is about 2 miles back on a rough dirt road. The grounds... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids ages 5 and 7) stayed here for 3 nights May 3-6, 2009. It was a little out of our price range but we decided to "splurge" and we are so glad we did! My husband and I both agreed that this was probably the nicest hotel we've ever stayed at. The decor... More

This resort is wonderful! We were traveling with little kids and they loved the pools and the Monkey slide at Los Perditos. The grounds are absolutely breath taking and I can only imagine how nice it will be once it is completed. The price is high but I beleive the grounds and rooms were definitely worth it. The staff was... More

This was our second trip to Costa Rica (explored different regions) and this Resort was mind-blowing. Absolutely beautiful and so very relaxing. If you want to explore, however, there are excursions offered. The photos you see on the website are very true to the in-person comparison. Very surreal. The views are amazing from every room and the rooms themselves are... More

This place is amazing. I am a poor teacher from California and wanted to impress my two sons (ages 26 and 28). We were all impressed! I cannot believe that I spent so much money for a family suite.....but it was worth it!!!! What was so impressive is that the owner of the hotel kept the wild animal refuge going... More

After almost five years in Costa Rica as a tour guide, and having been a fan of "La Paz Waterfall Gardens" before it was damaged by landslides on the occasion of the January 8th earthquake (which incidentally I recently inspected and was informed by the owner that the target date for La Paz to reopen is June 15th, 2009 -...
