My husband and I and another couple spent 5 nights at The Springs Resort and it was one of the best travel experiences we have ever had. We stayed in the Villa Callatea and it was more spectacular in person than what we expected from the pictures on the website. The inside was spacious and well decorated. There were several... More

We had all ages represented on this trip including 70+ year old parents, my kids and brothers kids from ages 5 through 12. Everyone loved the resort and had a great time, even though it rained for most of our trip. We are all amazed by the intricate detail put into this resort, including the lobby/entrance, the restaurants, bars, hot... More

a new favorite hotel. the views are unbeatable, the staff was amazing, the rooms beautiful...honestly, nothing negative to say about it. close enough to town, but feels very remote. I would recommend it without reservation.

The Springs Resort was amazing. Our room was stunning, the views were breathtaking and the service was outstanding. My only complaint was that I didn't find the food that great; don't get me wrong, it was good, but not great. The springs all around the property were gorgeous. We went in quite a few of them but found the hottest... More

This hotel is definitely 5 star! The help is wonderful and the facilities are unbeatable. One thing I found strange is that the prices for room service were cheaper than the same item at the restaurant. The sushi was fantastic!

Beautiful and relaxing - spas are amazing. We spent a week in February and our room overlooked the volcano. Hummingbirds everywhere. Relaxing entertainment. The manager was great. He personally helped us retrace our horse back riding tour to track down a lost personal item - we found it. Much of the staff were friendly and top notch - especially the... More

My friend and I somehow ended up in the honeymoon suite! Shame I wasn't on my honeymoon. The unit was amazing. 2 bedrooms 2 baths. Perfect view of the Volcano. The sushi restaurant was great and a few spots in town were good too! Nene's was one of the in town restaurants recommended to us.

While I would never go there on dry season (nor could I afford to!) this resort was COMPLETELY worth the money. The hot springs are bountiful and beautiful, the view is incredible and the game room is pretty great too! Everyone who works there is SUPER especially our seemingly personal bell hop Allen. And if the resort wasn't great enough,... More

If The Springs has any fault, it is that it is too nice. Seriously, it's hard to believe a resort can be so beautiful, the staff can be so friendly, the pools and springs can be so plentiful, the food can be so good and the activities can be so fun. I just feel guiltily having it all! Special kudos... More
