My husband, 9 year old son and I just got back from the Springs Resort and absolutely loved it. It is a great place for families. They have several neat hot spring pools tucked into the jungle hill. They have a great water slide-very well done-just tucked right into the jungle. Our son loved the water slide, the game room... More

The service is not very not good. However the view and hot springs are amazing. We went tubing and it was fun but disorganized and felt rushed. The shuttle service to the tubing did not run well.

My wife and I plus another couple stayed for 3 nites in March 2012. The rooms are excellent and so are the views. Do not get a room number beginning with "1" - you feel like you are in the basement. Views would be spectacular if the volcano were erupting. The food is mediocre. The food service is disorganized and... More

The Springs is a lovely resort. The staff was great, always helpful and very polite. The hot springs are wonderful. The food was not so great but it was eatable. The weather also played tricks on us but that's what you can expect in Costa Rica. I liked the idea that there are only 44 rooms at the springs resort.... More

We had the most amazing time a The Springs in early March 2012. We were wow'd from the moment we walked in. The private tour of the property upon check in, the welcome drink we received as we came upon the bar, and the gorgeous room were all things that made us know right away that we picked a great...

After reading a lot of mixed reviews I was a bit nervous about booking our stay at the Springs for our Arenal part of our Costa Rica trip during Spring Break. I had read so many negatives about the food quality and prices and lack of service and the plastic prefab feel of the place. We have stayed at and... More

We didnt stay at the hotel but we visitd The Springs to go to the hot springs and have dinner as part of a packaged tour. Our resort was 5 miles or more from The Springs.
