We just returned once again, to one of our all-time favorite places to stay in Costa Rica. Have been coming here since the "old style" resort prior to all of the new and fabulous "make-over's" with beautiful new rooms, lovely furnishings, wonderful view of the Arenal Volcano and a great staff. Thanks to Erlin, the Reservations Manager, due to my... More

My husband and I made many trips to La Fortuna during the time we lived in Costa Rica and this was one of our favorite places to stay. The pools are fantastic, they are different temperatures and fed by the hot springs. The main pool not only has a bar, but also has a sushi chef! You can get other... More

Pros: - the hot spring pools which are staggered and different temperatures and we all enjoyed going between them and seeing all the wildlife around. The pools are well maintained too. - pool bar - fun! We were at the pool... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 boys, ages 9 and 11) had a wonderful stay. The views of the volcano are simply unreal!! We loved the pool and hot springs area, where we often saw iguanas sunning themselves on the rocks, and we enjoyed the food and drinks at the swim-up sushi bar. I was amazed by the... More

We stayed at Arenal Springs for two nights and were very happy with the value. The hotel was well-located for driving to all of the outdoor activities we were interested in seeing, and a special mention for the concierge Edward (?), who was absolutely exceptional in helping us plan everything we wanted to do in our limited time (two days)....

Beautiful resort with every villa having a view of the volcano. Attentive staff and great service. However, I was disappointed to learn that the hot spring pools are "natural" but the water piped in from the source. The swimming pool is small and not for serious swimming, but more for swimming up to the bar. For a fantastic real hot... More

Beautiful property. The pictures on here can't possibly do credit to how amazing it is. The grounds are kept so clean. The hot springs were amazing to sit in after a day of adventure. I loved that I didn't smell like chlorine after I got out! The staff were very helpful, especially the concierge. Everyone in our group agreed that... More

I love that all the rooms are little bungalows facing the volcano. The grounds are beautiful, and the hot springs on site were a nice bonus. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It's easy to get a taxi, book a tour, whatever you need. First class all the way!
