My husband and I honeymooned here in April 2009. The resort and staff were magnificent. We had the most wonderful room with an unobstruced view of Arenal volcano. We were fortunate enough to have been there while it was active and witnessed a mini eruption in the middle of the night! It was spectacular! The numerous pools and the entire... More

Overall I suppose we had a good time, but, we felt we had to spend a good deal of time here to make up for the $40 price tag, especially since we had a hot tub back at the hotel. I think I was expecting the place to feel natural, instead I felt I was in a very fake environment.... More

We booked a two day pass that included dinner. It was a $25 taxi from the Royal Corin. The dinner was just so-so. My wife's dinner was so salty that she didn't even finish it. They provide you with towels and a locker. The bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner. After we got into our swimsuits the plan was... More

Over the top, beauty! Over the top facility! Over the top springs! Over the top service! It is a bit hefty in cost but the product is truly worth it. The resort itself has lots of activities, however the surrounding countryside is worth exploring. Truly remarkable. Vincent Miller

My friends and I were just blown away as soon as we arrived. We were so impressed that we immediately asked to extend our one day visit to two--even though we had rented a house during the time. We were fortunate, and grateful, that we were able to do so. Kudos to Jason at the Registration Desk, who went directly... More

We were able to get a 2 day pass for the springs from our hotel and we had a great time. The property is huge and it felt almost empty when we went in July. The kids could jump from pool to pool and we generally had the pools to ourselves. The pools were clean and the staff were friendly.... More

We stayed with another couple in July for three nights, but I wished we would have stayed longer! It was by far the most amazing location/resort I've seen! Definitely do the hanging bridges, zip lining, and canyoning! I can't wait to come back and bring my kids when they get older!!!! I am absolutely in love with costa rica!!!

Beautiful hotel, grounds, rooms. We had one of the 2 bedroom suites with the most spectacular view of volcan Arsenal. Pool area was great and the wildlife reserve was very interesting. My only complaint was no elevator to our rooms on the 3rd floor (my elderly mother would have benefited.
