Schedule some time to spend at this resort. We will spend more time on the hotel grounds during our next visit. Also make sure that you find out how far away your excursions are from this hotel. There is plenty to do here without planning many other things. The rooms are amazing. The bathroom is total luxury. The view of... More

Pros: The most spectacular rooms and views you will find anywhere -- and from every place in the hotel. Extremely friendly staff. The ability to find a quiet private spot near a hot springs or join the masses by the large pool and have drinks brought to your lounge chair. Cons: Some of the worst food I've ever eaten. Some...

What a surprise after a rough ride up the dirt road to the resort. Beautiful setting and second floor room with balcony viewing Arenal, volcano in Costa Rica. This resort would stand out anywhere. The service was impeccable. The only thing that could be improved is the food--decent, but not gourmet. Definitely worth a visit and a stay to enjoy... More

This iThe only place to stay in Arenal. The Springs were very clean, exclusive and within easy walking distance from your villa or lobby. The property is challenging to get to, especially at night. I would not drive up this road! Get a cab as it is off the side of a mountain. This place is luxury at its finest... More

t's a long trip on small roads to get here, and the last 1000 yards are literally through a dirt road, but once you pull up to entrance, it's like entering a mirage. We stayed in an Alta Villa guest room which had a great view of the volcano (however, this hotel is on the side of the volcano where... More

This Hotel was absolutely great! The property is very beautiful and has around 18 pools of varying temperatures due to the nearby volcanic hotsprings. Some of the pools are very private and some are more front and center, but it is fun and relaxing to hang out in the springs! The property is absoutely immaculate and the views of the... More

The pictures do not do this place justice. Yes it's about 15 min off the main road on a rugged dirt road to get to the hotel, but so what. That's why it felt so incredibly remote, and utterly peaceful and isolated. The view of the volcano from the hotel was the most beautiful view I saw in Costa Rica.... More

Along with 4 friends, my husband and I recently visited The Springs Resort and Spa. Believe me, photo's do not do justice to the beauty of this place! Surrounded by lush rain forest and stunning view of Mount Arenal is jaw dropping. The architecture and craftmanship of the resort is quite impressive. The numerous hot springs pools and landscaping were... More

Absolutely beautiful resort and serenely peaceful. Fantastic, friendly service, gorgeous views, and delicious food! We went there for my husband's birthday, and it will be a birthday he will always remember. Johnny, the Consierge, took care of our every need and desire. During the days, we went zip-lining, hiking and white water rafting, and in the late afternoons we relaxed... More

This hotel is the sister hotel to the Peace Lodge and you can see similarities-especially in the wonderful staff. There are no nicer people on earth than in Costa Rica and these folks are the best! Again, we were greeted promptly and escorted to our beautiful, huge room,with an awesome view of Arenal Volcano-we actually got to see it twice... More
