For this special occasion my brothers and I wanted something perfect. We had 100 guest residents and foreigners. We needed a paradise and we found it in The Spring Resort and Spa in La Fortuna Costa Rica. Our first tour there was a perfect experience everything was set for the party ( food, location, transportation, bar). I wanted typical food... More

From beginning to end this resort is breathtaking. From its numerous waterfall gardens, to the food, to the amazing people that treat you with such care. I highly recommend it for any couple young and old or family. The rooms are decorated with excellent taste down to the last detail always looking at a picture window of the Arenal Volcano.... More

This resort was awesome. We were a group of 10 and they placed us in 5 rooms very close by. The surroundings were beautiful, the rooms also. The staff was very friendly and always making you feel at home. They arranged our tours and transpoortation to different places and all was always on time. The pool area ( with the... More

We were at the Springs Resort from 7-13 to 7-20 and it was an incredible vacation. We were there for the entire week and there was plenty to do. Club Rio is the absolute best - what an incredible place within a short 3 minute shuttle ride. My wife & I are very active and in our 40's and have... More

We just returned from an amazing first time to Costa Rica and I highly recommend staying at The Springs Resort. We are a family of four, including two teenage girls. We stayed in a two bedroom springs suite. It had two rooms w/sliding doors in between. Each room had its own bathroom and beautiful views of the volcano. We had... More

I didn't stay at the lodge so I can't comment on the rooms. I got the two day visitor pass to enjoy the hot springs. I loved trying out all the differently temperatured pools and I could not pass up the water slide! With the pass you can also take a bus down to the river and see some wildlife... More

We have been to the springs before but this time we bought the two day pass. It gets you into Club Rio which has a lot of different things to do. We did the Rock wall climbing. It was a blast. The guides were very helpful and you don't have to be experienced to do this climb. We also did... More

This hotel was one of the best I ever stayed at. The service was superb and the massages I received in the spa were done professionally with expertise. The food was delicious and the service was everything you would desire. The hotel is so clean that I did not have any allergies there as I do at home. The excursions... More

It is an extremely elegant resort with first class amenities and service. The two-mile unpaved driveway gave the impression that nothing could be at the end of the road, yet upon arriving one finds paradise. The remoteness of the location necessitates taking most meals at the resort. There are several restaurants; all of the food is delicious. The cost varies... More

The resort is spectacular! The staff is friendly, food good(especially the breakfast), and amenities are second to none. The rooms are large and beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Two activities that are a must are waterfall rappelling and sky trek zip line. Costa Rica vacation is unlike any we have been on and The Springs Resort is the only... More
