In January 2009 I traveled to Costa Rica to take a one-week Windstar cruise along the Pacific coast, to be followed by a 3-night stay at the Peace Lodge in La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Unfortunately, on the day of our arrival in Costa RIca, there was a major earthquake (6.2 Richter scale), and the roads leading up to the Peace... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the Springs with my wife and 2 boys: 11 and 4. This place was awesome. The service was outstanding. The people were friendly and did everything they could to enhance our stay. The resort manager, Joey from Tennessee, was a super person for both guidance and general conversation. The rooms were outstanding, there was... More

The Springs was amazing. I found this property by pure luck, and I was skeptical because there were only 3 ratings here on tripadvisor. The rest of my family was pushing Tabacon, but I protested enough for them to give the Springs a try. Boy, did we luck out. While we were staying there, only 4 rooms were occupied, but... More

My husband and I were displaced here when Peace Lodge sustained terrible damage from the earthquake. They are apparently owned by the same people. Let me tell you that it was a wonderful place to be "displaced" to. It is top notch all the way. There were only 20 rooms open but what a room! It had Brazillian Cherry hardwood... More

I never write reviews, but after (1) having a great stay, and (2) meeting so many people that planned their trip - including honeymoons - around the more famous Tabacon, I felt compelled to share the following. I was skeptical when my travel agent booked me in the Springs since the Tabacon was full - I had heard/read so many... More

I don't usually write reviews, but this place was so amazing that I felt obliged to spread the word. This place was beyond my expectations considering the resort is a work in progress, they will eventualy add casinos and more villas. Wonderful place for family or a romantic getaway. The pictures from their website do not even do justice to... More

Quite possibly the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at in my life. We just stumbled on to this place when we heard they had a promotion for $25 hot springs. We had already visited Ecotermales and were just curious about other hot springs in the area. After driving 2 miles along the bumpy dirt road off the main highway, we... More

The Springs is a new resort, still under contruction, but you really don't notice. From the moment you pull up to it you will realize what a wonderful place this is. The views are incredible, there is amazing woodwork all over this hotel. Very interesting design, the entire back of the hotel is open air, all 5 floors. So everything... More
