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

My Father took my friend and I to here and the Peace lodge and we had a blast! It was like nothing we have ever expierenced before! Our days were filled with endless adventures and relaxation. I recommend this hotel to anyone who is staying in costa rica! The view was amazing and the staff were so sweet!

The view was beautiful and there was so much to see and do. You wake up to a view of the Arenal volcano. It is spectacular, tucans and hummingbirds everywhere. You have to see this resort to believe it for yourself. I want to go back soon. The food and staff were excellent and very friendly. First class and beautiful.

I agree with others who said the hotel facility is lovely - comfortable beds, clean, loved the flora and fauna (saw five Tucan's in the trees near the water slide), BUT the food is terrible. The fruit on the breakfast bar was not ripe and I got sick from eating tuna. I complained to the front desk since the manager... More

Just completed a 6-night stay in the Orapendola Suite with our twin teenage boys. The Springs is a magnificant property, lushly landscaped and impeccably maintained. The property is immaculate and we constantly noticed housekeepers sweeping, wiping and polishing in the common areas. The attention to the room was nothing short of phenomenal. I am a stickler for cleanliness when I... More

From the moment we checked in, I have never met such attentive and friendly staff. Yes, the hotel was beautiful and the view was phenomenal (Clearly)! But the staff is what really made it so easy to fall in love with this place! My boyfriend and I work in the Hospitality industry in Miami and we know how hard it... More

The Springs is the absolute most amazing place. It has SO much to offer! the staff and owners are... More

Our stay at the Springs Resort and Spa was everything we hoped it would be. From the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out, our experience was fantastic. The staff was always available and helpful, from the wait staff in the restaurants to the cashier in the gift shop to the guys working at Club Rio. The grounds... More

What is fantastic about this hotel is that you can be as busy and adventurous as you want to be OR as peaceful and relaxed as possible. The reception staff was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished with a lot of beautiful wood and stone. The patios are big with SPECTACULAR views of The... More
