My husband and I went here for our honeymoon recently during the "rainy" season, but the rain never faulted the beauty or adventure we had! And we would probably go back during the rainy season due to the slower pace and more personable people! The people were friendly, understanding and intelligent! The owner, Lee Banks, is about the most down... More

My husband and i were celebrating a BIG anniversary and wanted a special, all by ourselves 'honeymoon' trip to a beautiful, exotic place not too far away from the states. We were fortunate enough to find The Springs Resort and Spa in Costa Rica's Arenal Volcano Rainforest. It is a gorgeous hotel and we had a very spacious room with... More

This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and I will definitely return. Everything was perfect, from the views of the volcano from the room, to the horse back riding throughout the property. So much to do here!!! Kayaking, bird watching, zen like spa, zip lining. Awesome!! Loved the resort, Loved the Service, Loved the food.

WOW!! What an amazing resort. The views are spectacular and the service top rated. My room was very spacious with a fantastic balcony that had a stunning view of the Arenal Volcano. The resort was one of the most peaceful and relaxing places that I have ever been (and I've been all around the world..at least twice). If you are... More

This hotel is i think the best one in Arenal. Unfortunately you could not go into the swimming pool because of a renovation that was a pitty. But everything else the way the people are welcome you is so very friendly. You get a cold towel for refreshing and a non alcoholis cocktail wich is very nice when you have... More

For starters, traving in October provided us a measure of seclusion unique to this season. We were one couple of just a dozen or so staying here in Oct 2011. Travel Because of the remote location, a... More

The Springs is absolutely breathtaking. The resort its self is on a gorgeous property, with hot springs, a river for tubing, wild cats, and of course one of the most beautiful views in the world, the Arenal Volcano. After my hot stone message, I was gently woken as the window opened to the view of the volcano and CR rain... More
