This resort is the finest I have ever been to. Lush tropical paradise. Service is what you would expect from a 5 Star Resort. Rooms are gorgeous with an incredible view of the volcano. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. There are many things to do at the resort and close by as well and very reasonably priced as well.... More

We just returned from Costa Rica and the Springs Resort was one of the reasons we had the best vacation. Everything from the incredible two story suite to the relaxing hot springs made the trip special and unusual. The activities at the Club Rio were a blast and the staff at the club made the experience a blast for our... More

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Springs. We were certainly not disappointed at all. Facility was beautiful, service was wonderful, staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a first floor Vista room and our view was unbelievable. Food at the resort was very good and not unreasonably priced. Hidden Gem..they don't mention on the website, but... More

We purchased the day pass at The Springs Resort for $50 each and it was totally worth it! It was good for two days. The grounds and the numerous pools and hot springs are very beautiful. There were three separate ares with the hot springs. Each one slightly different. We think the one all the way down by the river... More

From checking in until our reluctant departure the staff were very friendly and helpful and extremely professional.The views from the large picture window and the very spacious balcony were spectacular and looked directly across the valley to Arenal volcano. This is the case with all the rooms at the hotel. The units are 2 storey and ours was an Alta... More

You will not be disappointed. The resort is amazing, the staff incredible and the excursions are to die for. The only thing we would enhance is the food and choice of restaurants. We spent 5 days on the beach so the Springs was a wonderful complement. We travel all over the world and the staff at the Springs were comparable... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 days at The Springs. The property itself is magnificent along with the view of the volcano. This is a wonderful hotel to both relax and see the various sights. There were many families here and they all seem to enjoy the hotel as well. I would reccommend The Springs to both families and... More

We just returned from 9 days in Costa Rica where we stayed at 3 different hotels and The Springs was the best, hands down! The rooms were beautiful and I believe all of them had a private deck with a view of the volcano. The pools were awesome and Club Rio was lots of fun but what really did it... More

My family of five stayed at The Springs for 2 nights in March 2013. We all wanted to stay longer and would return in a heartbeat. The resort is beautiful and serene. From nearly every location you have a gorgeous view of the Arenal Volcano. The many pools are wonderful. My kids (ages 14, 12 and 9) also loved the... More

The Springs resort is difficult to review because it presents a real conflict. On the one hand, we were put off by the atmosphere, which makes you think you’re at the Polynesian resort at Disneyworld. There is no authentic Costa Rican flavor here -- it is totally Americanized. Even the signs around the resort are exclusviely in English. On the... More
