My husband and I stayed for 2 nights during our honeymoon- It was amazing! We came in Sept during the "green season" and had the best luck-all the clouds parted and the sun was out all day! Since it was off season, we only spotted 1 other couple the whole time we weret there. One of my favorite memories of... More

My husband, 2 daughters (12yr & 7yr) and son (14yr) spent 4 nights at the Springs over the Holidays. What an amazing hotel! A five star resort in the middle of the rain forest. The views were incredible from every level of the hotel, including our rooms. Numerous hot springs throughout the hotel with 1 swim up bar and 1... More

Our trip was fabulous!! We went in October which is the rainy season, but we were there for a week and the weather was gorgeous! The food was out of this world! I have been to resorts that left me wanting in their restaurants, but this food was amazing. The chefs are clever and accomplished. The rooms have every detail... More

If you've never woken up to a volcano out of your window you have something to add to your bucket list! I went on a Girls Adventure trip to Costa Rica and stayed at The Springs. Everything was amazing. My husband is in the hotel industry and needless to say we are hard to please. The Springs did not disappoint.... More

15-20 of us wanted to travel together; pay independently, but do all activities together. We asked The Springs Resort and Spa if they could plan an adventurous itinerary for us on & off the resort property. Every detail was met! At the Resort we did rock climbing, tubing down the river, yoga, horseback riding, hiking, and then relaxed in the... More

Words and even photos cannot sum up what awaits you at this resort. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the rooms, view and the property overall will leave you breathless! So much to do and only so few days to do it. You can be as active or relaxed as you like- something for everyone. Book it- you won't... More

My husband, 2 daughters and I just spent the most glorious 4 nights at The Springs. We wish we could have stayed longer! it's absolutely beautiful inside and out. The views of the volcano and surrounding lush green rolling hills are magnificent The rooms are large and very elegant in design. While many likely go there for the thermal baths/pools,... More

First class all the way! The rooms - luxurious comfort finished with amazing detail. The view from the room -- ummmm: front row center from your seat/bed/hammock, on your private veranda, of the Arenal volcano. The property -- blended into the Costa Rican landscape --- relaxing pools discreetly placed all around the grounds. Adventure --- Club Rio: FUN, FUN, FUN... More

Just went to the hotel at Srings and Resort and Spa at Arenal. First, the rainy season is until the end of December. It rains about 300 days in Arenal so understand you may have some bad days. My wife and I just went the first week of January and the weather was great. It is always sunny in the... More

A spectacular and bustling property. Numerous pools of the therapeutic hot springs to choose from. Hotel spans 5 floors. Tons of activities, dining options, etc. Top-shelf. (But I thought our drinks were watered down).
