Coming to The Springs felt like a dream. My husband and I and my 3 girlfriends had spent a week travelling around western Costa Rica, exploring beach towns and the local roads. When we arrived at the Springs, immediately we were struck by how stunning the surroundings were and how immaculate the grounds were kept. The staff were extremely helpful... More

After staying in hostels down the coast and in La Fortuna staying at The Springs was a rare treat! We checked in and were welcomed by Kermis who gave us a wonderful tour of the grounds and allowed us to practice our spanish. The rooms were phenomenal. We were booked in the family suite which was 2 floors and had... More

My husband and I just returned from 11 wonderful days in Costa Rica. We stayed 4 nights/5 days at the Springs Resort and Spa, in a honeymoon suite with the private spring pool. I relied heavily on Trip Advisor reviews to plan the trip and want to offer my reviews in the hope that they will help someone else plan... More

Full disclosure -- I've had business dealings with The Springs Resort. However, this month, I stayed strictly as a tourist and it was superb. Their concierge department arranged everything form airport transfers to daily activities. A variety of dining options from bar food to cloth-napkin deluxe. A dazzling landscape of pool after pool -- hot, warm, cold, water slide, waterfall,... More

We had a gorgeous villa, perched one thousand feet above the Arenal Valley with views of the jungle and Arenal Volcano. This is luxury in the middle of the jungle. The food in the restaurant was good in a beautiful setting. I enjoyed the hot pools on the grounds. The villas have a private balcony with terrace for relaxing and... More

This is my favorite hotel ever. We stayed in the honeymoon suite. We had our own hot spring jacuzzi. It was so amazing. The view was excellent and the room was so nice. This hotel made my honeymoon. The people here were amazing. When you called them to get ice they were at your door before you hung up. The... More

The hotel is gorgeous, it is basically a compound that you would never have to leave but it is disgusting. If your looking to travel to Costa Rica for an adventure and to experience the true life and spirit of the country this is not the place for you. Nothing is real about the place. Even the rocks that surround... More

Checked in today at The Springs. Reserved a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom "with private garden terrace with outdoor infiniti edge whirlpool and volcano view." When we were shown to our room, we were taken to a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom. No private infiniti edge whirlpool. I immediately advise the nice man who is our "host" that this is not the... More

The Springs is a wonderful hotel with excellent service, fantastic views (even from Bed) amazing hot springs and pools, and great food. A little expensive for our budget but worth it for a special occasion.

The hotel is great. We did not stay here, we stayed at another hotel, but used the Springs services for $40 a person per day. Totally worth it! The water, the food, the ambience, all spectacular. The hot pools were so much fun and the slide was a nice bonus. Totally unexpected. Stayed for new year's eve. Sushi dinner was... More
