I just returned from spending 9 days in Costa Rica and this property was the best. The room was very clean and upscale, the mineral pools and bar in a swiming pool were great. The food in the casual dining room was average but the food in the formal dining room was horrible. The service was excellent and the atmosphere... More

The Springs Resort and Spa had atleast 2 maybe 3 staff members per guest. They were great. I have 4 kids all under 10 and they couldnt get enough of the CLub Rio that they have on the property. Club Rio is on the resort property and provides lots to do. My kids went tubing every day down the river... More

I travelled w two fourteen year-olds in early July. Of the three places we stayed in Costa Rica, this was our least favorite. Compared to the eco-resorts and beautiful nature in other areas, this hotel seemed like an American cousin came to Costa Rica and built a castle. Our rooms were grand, and the kids loved the big screen TVs,... More

Our entire trip to Costa Rica was amazing. My wife and our daughters stayed at the Springs from 22-26 June, and we didn't want to leave. After leaving the Springs we stayed at the Westin Playa Conchal near Tamarindo (about a 4 1/2 hour drive) for 5 more nights before we returned home. The Westin was alright but not amazing... More

We didn't spend the night in this resort but took advantage of there 2 day $99.00 Club Rio package. We were able to use the facilities of the resort and go horseback riding or tubing. We went tubing twice and had a great time. The resort is stunning to say the least. The pools are amazing and so are the... More

This hotel was fantastic. The staff were top notch, always catering to every need and going the extra distance. The facilities were immaculate and the scenery is breathtaking!! The pools they have there were pristine and relaxing. Unlike anything I've ever experienced before. Keihlor gave us an orientation of the hotel which was fabulous, and Donald the bartender at the...
