So many hot thermal pools. Some are natural, and some are created by the resort. Great pool bar. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was first class. We had our own terrace overlooking the Arenal volcano. We had numerous visits on the terrace from beautiful birds. The only downside is that this resort is located in a... More

My husband and I just returned from a "college reunion" excursion at "The Springs" in Costa Rica. It was so incredible I am compelled to share the experience. It started with our expert tour guide telling us to sleep with our curtain open so we would wake to an amazing site. We did, and started our first day with the... More

We had a most enjoyable experience while staying at The Springs. The roomsare beautifully appointed and very spacious. The view of the Arenal Volcanofrom our roomis unbelievable. The public areas, five floors, are beautiful, and most have a view of the volcano. The food was delicious. The staff is the best have encountered, very attentive, helpful and friendly.We experienced many... More

My boyfriend (Greg W.)and I went to the springs resort and spa and were blown away by the fantastic service from the entire staff. It was our first time to Costa Rica, but I assure you not our last. The food in the restaurants on premises were wonderful. The roads in surrounding area are not good, but the resort itself... More

The springs is gorgeous. Rooms are as beautiful as advertised and cries are great. Unfortunately for us it rained a lot. Despite the rain we enjoyed all meals and loved the hot spring pools. We did a few excursions and had great tour guides and a lot of fun with each. Eric gave us an excellent twilight tour of zoo.... More

We purchased a $60/person for 2 days deal for the hotspring. Learned that we could do the animal tour there for free, but didn't do it due to time crunch. The main area has many pools at different temperatures. There's also a water slide for both kids and young-at-heart adults. We watched half of the AFC championship game in the... More

The Springs Resort and Spa is not only one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed at, but also had some of the best service I have ever enjoyed at a hotel. The room (a 2 bedroom suite that we were upgraded to) was amazing, huge and wonderfully appointed and the grounds are absolutely breathtaking. The springs are unbelievably... More

The Springs is an awesome resort and spa. Wonderful views, great food, and beautiful spacious rooms. There is so much to do and see: tubing down the river, horseback riding, relaxing in the warm spring pools and much more. But, the greatest thing about the Springs is the staff. They are the most accommodating and nicest people you will ever... More

We bought the day passes and spent the entire day here using the hot springs and did two optional activities . We chose horseback riding and tubing. The lunch was included and was very good. Had a great day. This place really is unbelievable. The crew doing the horseback riding and tubing were very friendly and professional. Donald, the bartender... More
