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

This is the sister hotel to the peace lodge located in the la Paz waterfall gardens My husband and I traveled here after a couple nights stay at the lodge. The Springs is really first class. The rooms are very nicely done and very clean. The patios have hammocks and humming bird feeders which is a great way to start... 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...

Wow, what an awesome place - very zen-like! The architect of this resort did an exceptional job of centering everything around breathtaking views of Arenal Volcano with its constant steam rising from the top. The resort felt very clean and new (I think it's <5yrs old) and the rooms were spacious and well-appointed with very high ceilings with huge windows... More

We celebrated our wedding at The Springs in May 2012 and it could not have been any more beautiful. From the moment we arrived our wedding planner, Amanda, went out of her way to ensure that our wedding day was better than anything we could have imagined. We were able to choose the location for our ceremony and reception from... More
