So, I rated the Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal "average." For all of those who have wrote that this was the best, or fabulous or paradise, we either had a different experience or I can recommend some other luxury resorts for your future vacations for comparison. This is a beautiful property and the site design and architecture are, by... More

This is the most beautiful resort that we have ever visited. Drop dead gorgeous! There are so many mineral springs that we ran out of time to visit all of them. The food is excellent. We rented the 3 bedroom suite which was very luxurious and perfect for 3 couples traveling together or a family with older children who could... More

Simply world class and the best resort in the world. The owner uses a tropical paradise mountain side as a canvas with an active volcano as the backdrop and uses the most beautiful hardwoods, tile, granite, and stone artistry to create one of the finest resorts in the world. Every little detail was considered when constructed and improvements and new... More

The views from our room of the volcano were mesmerizing.....took so many pictures. The warm mineral pools were the best I have ever experienced after a fun filled day of the hanging bridges and horseback riding. The general manager Roy was like a friend...taking care of making my entire family feel welcome with his warm smile and great sense of... More

I've always been a reader of TA, but never commented heavily before. My wife and I stayed here in September 2010 (the website would only let me go back to March 2011), and are currently considering a return trip. We're looking at other international destinations, but if we do go back to Costa Rica, we will be staying at the... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a vacation to Costa Rica for Valentines Day 2011. We didn't end up taking the trip until a whole year later, but it was well worth the wait. As a big "The Bachelor" fan, the only impression I had of the hotel was what I saw on the TV show (which was a pretty good... More

I was there with my fiancee, and his dad and his fiancee. It is by far one of the most luxurious hotels I have visited in Costa Rica, the service was excellent, and the facilities look just like in the photos! No Photoshop here like for other hotels! Definitely a great destination hotel for a tropical getaway. In contrast to... More
