We had a wonderful time at Arenal Springs Resort. Our favorite things were: the grounds, the free mini-bar items, the wonderful breakfast each morning that comes with the room, the tranquility. My daughter celebrated her 7th birthday there and the staff went above and beyond to make her an AMAZING volcano cake!!! The concierge who I think is named Ramo... More

We stayed here for two nights and would have extended if we could have. The fruit trees and flowers on the property are lovely (they have some of them named so you know what you are looking at). The whole family loved the pools with the waterfalls and the hot springs pools!!!! Swim up bar has great food and drinks.... More

We loved all the nature , flaura & fauna at this hotel. But we especially loved soaking in the hot mineral springs every day. Beautiful songbirds sang for us in the morning and we even saw colorful macaws at the entrance. The wifi was iffy in the room but worked well in the reception area. The prices in the gift... More

Our group of 8 stayed here for 4 nights at the end of June. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were welcomed with a cold glass of juice and went through the check-in process. However, we were less than enthused about having to wear ID bands during the stay. Golf carts and drivers were provided to help us get our bags... More

Spent 3 nights here in July. Our "junior suite" was really just a relatively small hotel room with 2 queen beds and not much more space. Shower was cool with the rocks. We also had a bit of a bug issue in the bathroom on our last night (they may have been tiny ants). Check in was great and greeters... More

We really enjoyed this first stop of 3 places on our honeymoon. The hotel arranged for private transfer for us from the airport to the hotel, and they were even able to change it for us at the last minute when our flight times changed. We were greeted by a friendly driver and the hotel had even packed a cooler... More

We stayed at the Springs for 3 nights during July, 2014. Although our room faced the volcano, we never even saw it there because it was so rainy and foggy. Bring an umbrella if you are going in July. The grounds of the hotel are immaculate and the staff is incredibly friendly. The hot springs are beautiful. And unlike other... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Arenal Springs. The property is absolutely beautiful and the food was very good, better than we expected. The location is a bit remote so food options outside of hotel are limited but the property has enough options. The hot spring pools are amazing. It rained the entire time we were there but... More

We stayed here for the first 2 nights on our trip to Costa Rica. It is an easy 2.5 hour drive from the airport in San Jose on paved smooth roads. The landscaping here is beautiful, many flowering (I don't think native) plants. The rooms are set up in mini bungalows, 2 rooms to a building. The shower is different,... More

One of the most exquisite places I have ever had the pleasure to visit. The grounds are gorgeous overflowing with flowers, natural fruit trees, indigenous plants and a huge variety of birds (especially cool are the scarlet macaws and hummingbirds) and butterflies. All cabins have a full view of the volcano, but be prepared to not see the top as... More
