This place was amazingly incredible, especially for our honeymoon!!! We stayed at the palm bungalow with our own golf cart which was awesome, to get around the resort areas. The pools and bars and springs were wonderful and right in the middle of the rainforest. Every where you swam or ate, you had a view of the Arenal volcano, which... More

Disclaimer: my wife and I don't see eye-to-eye on this one. While the facilities overall were great, really nice and new and clean, aspects of the design and such just rubbed me the wrong way. A lot of the pools and such just felt too fake to me, like those landscape photographs that have been Photoshopped/tweaked just too much. We... More

I loved it, it was very luxurious and the people are very friendly and welcoming. We swam around in the hot springs and loved it, it was relaxing and the slide they have is fun. I believe just to visit the springs without staying at the hotel is $50p/p; however it includes food which is very yummy. These springs are... More

The springs has a great deal, $20 for a two day pass. If you're going to spend more than one day in La Fortuna, I would get the pass so you can come more than once. It has great views of the volcano, and they're very relaxed about letting you hang out. The patrons run the gamut from people like... More

The Springs Resort and Spa could be the perfect hotel except for one major problem. First the good, the physical hotel itself could not be better. Only a few years old it shows as it was opened just yesterday. Expert staff make this happen. From morning to night the maintenance staff is never obtrusive but always there. Our room was... More

We had the privilege of going to this beautiful place April 24 - 27, 2012. Our whole group, although not celebrities, were treated like celebrities! The view & venue were breathtaking, and the service by everyone (including the owner- Lee Banks) was over-the-top to ensure we had a great time! We've stayed at a lot of very nice places around...

This place is stunning. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The gym lays out fresh fruit, and fruit-sweetened water for refreshments. The views are spectacular. I could have spent my entire trip lounging in the natural hot springs and left perfecly content. The cat sanctuary is a must see. The buffet served nothing but delicious food.... More
