Our first trip to Costa Rica was spent at the Tabacon. We recently returned from a second trip where we stayed at The Springs. Here's a comparison: Springs was absolutely beautiful, definitely 5-star - Tabacon more of a 4-star, but still beautiful. We only had a room at the Tabacon, but a family suite at The Springs, which offered an... More

Spent two nights here and throughly enjoyed the stay. Rooms were fairly basic, but clean. Indoor/outdoor shower was great. Enjoyed sitting on the chairs on the front porch and looking at the volcano. Hot springs and pool were great and varied for the size of the resort. The staff. with the exception of the desk staff, were great and very... More

Stayed here for 2 nights last week. Property is absolutely gorgeous and rooms are incredible. Locals all agree that this is Arenal's best and most luxurious resort. Tabacon's hot springs are known as more "authentic," but The Springs' facilities are far superior. We stayed in Room 320, which had separate twin bedroom for the kids. Great view of volcano from...

I am not sure if my new bride and I were just spoiled too much at the Westin the previous few days of our honeymoon in Costa Rica or what; but this place was MUY TERRIBLE!!! The facilities are gorgeous for faux rock and springs; the views were amazing from our "upgraded" honeymoon suite. We absolutely had the time of... More

We have just completed 5 days at The Springs Resort and Spa in Cost Rica.....what an amazing vacation. This is probably one of the best resorts we have ever stayed, and the staff were extremely friendly and knowledgable of activities and adventures. I would recommend this place to anyone without concern!

5 star hotel all over. Spent a day at the spa and hot springs, had a blast. The hotel is a little bit off the main roads in the forest. It's so nice. Has a beautiful view of the Arenal volcano (if it's not cloudy, which is most of the time), great secluded relaxation hot tubs for couples or small... More

My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica looking for adventure. We found it! We stayed at The Springs for a full week and enjoyed it - while we were actually there. We spent every day doing excursions so it was nice to come back to the room and relax. The cleaning staff was fantastic - we always had fresh... More

We just returned from a trip to Costa Rica where we stayed 3 nights at Peace Lodge (La Pas Waterfall Gardens) and 4 nights at Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal Volcano. We were told that the roads are not very good and that we should hire a driver to take us between locations. That was a very good choice.... More

We were family of six people (ages 2, 4, 13, 19, 34 and 35) and it was an amazing experience for all ages! The toddlers loved the springs, the waterslide and the abundance of nature EVERYWHERE. The teens loved all the activities on the property at Club Rio. They went ATV-ing, kayaking, river tubing and they also did the off... More

My husband and I went to the Springs Resort and Spa as day visitors 6 times during our three visits to Arenal. One of the reasons that we made the last two visits to Arenal was to take advantage of the two day pass to enjoy the pools and great scenery that is offered there. Having arthritis the ability to...
