I have been looking for words to describe our stay at The Springs and no word really does it justice. From the time we arrived to the time we left, The Springs truly was all we thought it would be and more. The service was great. Alex and Natalia made things so easy. The resort is gorgeous. The view as... More

The Arenal Springs Resort was truly an experience of a lifetime! The service right off the bat was perfect!! Kermis our tour guide(super friendly & informative) showed us around while our luggage was being brought to our room. Let me add the view of the Volcano from out room was probably the coolest things I've ever seen! Awesome!!! Our room... More

The Springs destination was perfect for our family - we were a party of 16, with ages raging from 5 - 80, couples and young families. There were many options for trips and tours for nature lovers (that's me), thrill seekers, hikers, photographers, and those who just want to take in the beauty of Arenal. The concierge and all the...

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and I could not be happier with the accommodations at the Springs. Although it is a hike to get there, it is well worth the time. We hired a cab at the airport in San Jose and paid only $120 for both of us, and arrived at the hotel in 2 hours... More

My friends and I recently stayed at The Springs for two nights and it was the most amazing, relaxing, luxurious time we have ever had!! We had a perfect view of the volcano for both days that we were there, which was great luck for us... and we enjoyed soaking in the thermal waters for two whole days. The water... More

I believe reviews should be short and to the point. Bottom line, The Springs Resort and Spa in Costa Rica is second-to-none. Seriously, everything from the food (high end restaurant quality), to the accommodations (luxury), to the facilities, to the pools (especially the numerous and often secluded hot springs pools), to the views, was spectacular. No detail was overlooked. The... More

My husband and I just returned from our week's vacation inn Costa Rica with our two girls (ages 9 and 10). We started our trip at The Springs Resort and Spa. Upon arrival, we were graciously welcomed by the front desk and provided with delicious tropical drinks, given a tour of the breathtaking grounds with its scenic and lush backdrop,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Springs Resort as part of our honeymoon in April. The resort is tucked away and hidden from the main road. The resort is by far the most luxurious that we stayed at in Costa Rica. When you check in they give you a tour of the grounds to help you not feel so... More

Superb spa pools, great friendly staff and the wildlife tour is brilliant- we saw toucans, wild cats and a panther. The bar staff were great and we stayed in the pools for over 4 hours! Grounds are lovely and view of volcano from the pools are great.

What a fantastic surprise! We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with an "Adventure Trip" to Costa Rica and visited four locations from the Carribean to the Pacific. Our time at the Springs was incredible. It is, by far, the nicest place we have ever stayed at. The attention to detail, the service, the delightful hot springs, the views, ........ More
