Beautiful gardens,well maintained characterise this we'll run hotel. The hot springs are super and the swim up bar in the largest hot pool was a gem.......as were the staff. A slight downside were the eating arrangements dominated by coach parties who always seemed to be in a rush pushing other guests out of the way. As a result we only... More

I stayed here for two nights on a Caravan Tour which clearly is a prominent customer. The hotel had a healthy mix of tour groups and those visiting on their own. The hotel has a phenomenal location at the foot of Arenal Volcano - if it's clear and you can see it. Unfortunately, we saw it (partially) the afternoon we... More

We stayed three nights here, and never saw the volcano, but then found out that very few people do. Our driver actually said that in the past year he's seen it only twice on his trips to La Fortuna!! It kind of reminded me of my trip to Denali, where everyone sees pictures of the great Mt. McKinley/Denali, but few... More

Stayed 2 nights in this fabulous place. The grounds are enormous (resembling a small modern village), beautiful and have wonderful amenities - especially the pool and spa area (enjoy a drink at the swim-up bar in the hot pool) - even though sadly we could never see the local volcano due to cloud cover. The bar/restaurant areas are also excellent.... More

Arenal Springs Resort and Spa was an all-around excellent experience. We felt welcomed and taken care of from the moment we arrived – the door to our car was open for us, our bags were taken, and we were handed a drink and escorted to the front desk for check-in.

Hello bttrflyali thank you very much for visiting us and thanks for your comments, in this time of much rain is very common that some insects seek drier areas and for that reason is that sometimes they enter the rooms, we offer totally free 6 days a week class yoga, and if any guest wishes to make a private class...

We weren't there on an all - inclusive and I don't know if they offer such a plan. The food is great but can get expensive when you're with a family, and they are a distance from town. Yes, we cabbed into La Fortuna, but some other options in walking distance would have been nice. As for the facility itself,... More
