We started our trip in the mountains and so happy we decided to stay at Arenal Springs Resort. It is a beautiful property and very well maintained. We loved the bungalows and the quiet, serene setting. The room is a nice size and the bathroom is very large for this type of setup. We are a family of 4 and... More

As we entered the resort from the airport shuttle, all the other travelers gasped in hopes it was their hotel. It was absolutely magical. We were treated like royalty as we were led to our beautiful "lodge-like" room- heavy wood trim, vaulted ceilings, a view of the volcano framed perfectly by the wall of windows & clear glass french door...

This is a high end resort. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food was very good. The highlight of our stay here was the pool/hot springs... so refreshing and relaxing after a long day of travel.

Loved this hotel. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Insanely colorful wildlife. Amazing views of the Arenal volcano and the fact that the resort has its own hot springs means that guests can have a more private experience than some of the more touristed hot spring spots. Breakfast buffet was comprehensive and the best we had among the... More

This is a very beautiful hotel and very clean. Newer and convenient amenities. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Your room might be a ways from the pools and restaurants, but they will pick you up and take you where you need to go if you are feeling lazy. You can't walk anywhere off the hotel property, you really need... More

Hello eleedanielle. thank you very much for your valuable comments and thank you for staying at our hotel, the new law in Costa Rica # 9028 prohibits all hotels people smoke inside their facilities, and this was because of some discomfort for some breakfast, however as well as your comets we offer our guests the option to smoke outside the...

It is not really a hotel but a group of small bungalows arranged alongside little roads. It feels like a small village, all you need to add is a tiny supermarket and a tiny petrol station and a tiny post office and you can live there... I stayed in a 700 "street", as far as possible from the restaurant, pool... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we loved it. The Arenal Springs Resort was a great place to hang out between all of our activities. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms were great. We were upgraded to a King suite which way more than we are use to. Who really needs a Jacuzzi with Natural Hot... More

The layout of the resort is quite lovely, with individual bungalows all facing the volcano. We were able to sit out on our porch with a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful view. The hot spring pools were lovely and laid out so there was quite a bit of privacy. The open air restaurant is attractive but the food... More

Very relaxing environment. The hot springs and pool area stayed was never crowded even though the property was at capacity. Very nice and accomodating staff. Loved having my morning coffee on my balcony with the Arenal Volcano as my view. I enjoyed my stay and would return.
