We wrapped up our honeymoon trip to Costa Rica at The Springs for just two nights and immediately said how we wished we could have stayed longer. The springs/pools feel like you're in the middle of a rain forest, at night especially, but safe and clean. It also felt very private where we were able to spend ample time, day... More

Spent Chrismas night here for 3 hour dinner and pools. Absolutely beautiful place - both the building and the many many pools to try. Small slide at the bottom (but a little scary in the dark). A really lovely way to end a day of adventure in the Arenal area!

We arrived at our actual hotel late and very disappointed.. trying to fix the situation, we found out we could get day passes to the Springs and promptly drove there to get at least an hour or two of relaxing hot spring time. We were very pleased - the service was lovely (even though we weren't staying there!) the springs... More

Me and my girls spent an amazing weekend at the springs. The service was great! We even met the owner Lee and he was so welcoming and accommodating. We did everything from ATV riding, horse back riding, kayaking and tubing all on the resort! I highly suggest zip lining as well. Not even a lil rain could damper our time!... More

My family recently spent 5 days at The Springs and you cannot improve upon this guest's experience at this five-star establishment. While it is a phenomenal architectural creation on its own, this special staff ensures that you will not be disappointed for a moment. Not only did they take care of all of our personal daily arrangements with tours and... More

We spent 2 nights at the Spring Resort for our honeymoon in November. Although the weather did not allow us to see the volcano we still had a wonderful stay. the staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The springs were amazing! Due to the natural minerals in the water I would not recommend wearing... More

This resort is beautiful, private and luxurious. Needless to say, the rooms are spotless, bed was very comfortable and room service was pretty fast. All (accommodations, service, food and property) are SUPERB and of high standards. The view of the Arenal volcano is probably the best in town and the pools are simply gorgeous. Loved the wetbar! We saw gorgeous... More

Beautiful location. But rainy most of the time. Kayaking at club rio (at the resort) is very fun. The guides are very friendly Highly recommended resort. The restaurants are all very good. A little hard to get to but worth the effort.

This place is magical. We came here on a rare clear, sunny day and were greeted in the lobby by a stunning view of the whole volcano. The next 3 days were spent on 1/2 day or 3/4 day excursions (all excellent to outstanding), followed by late afternoon and evening soaks in the hot springs. The pool is beautiful with... More

This was the greatest place we have ever stayed. The grounds were just beutiful, our accomadations were very very wonderful along with being very comfortable. The staff at this resort was outstanding, so very pleasant and polite, they made us feel like they were so very happy that we were there. The hot springs were unbelieveable. This seems to be...
