Beautiful setting, away from the main road in a wonderful garden with magnificent views of the Arenal volcano. The resort is arranged as a set of wooden houses with 2 independent en-suite rooms each. The grounds and rooms are kept immaculately clean. The gardens alone are a treat with a surprising variety of different plants. Some friendly animals can be... More

Arenal springs resort was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. We were greeted with drinks when we arrived and had a nice bottle of wine and rose pedals in our room for celebration. The staff at the resort are exceptionally friendly and willing to help you with whatever you need.... More

My partner and I stopped here on a tour that we took. The bus ride was long from San José, but the end result was was beyond worth it! This property was gorgeous! The property and staff were amazing and the hot springs seemed endless! The Volcano made for an excellent picture! A must-see for anyone visiting Costa Rica!

This is a belated review for our family vacation in April 2014. The hotel is so beautiful - rivals any hotel I have ever stayed for beauty of grounds, views, and architecture. Staff was friendly and professional - especially the welcome team. The check in rivaled any 5 star property. Welcome cocktails (virgin for the kids) an overview of the... More

Excellent! Fantastic views of the volcano and terrific, friendly staff. Highly recommend! There is a gift shop on site and a choice of restaurants including a very good Italian. Breakfast has a good choice and they can easily arrange trips.

My wife and I recently stayed here for two nights as part of a guided tour of Costa Rica. It was pouring rain when we checked in and the Hotel provided large umbrellas for us to walk to our duplex room. All rooms face the volcano, with a private patio, two wooden rocking chairs and a table. Unfortunately, we were... More

I absolutely loved the resort grounds, the lodging and the staff but unfortunately their lack of wifi and the seemingly lack of knowledge and concern to get it repaired tainted the stay. As a working vacationer this oversight took a lot of the fun out of our stay at this fantastic location, we had to hoover in the lobby and... More

Upon arriving we were greeted by a very friendly staff. We were guided to our accommodations that had a very clear view of the Arenal Volcano looking out the floor to ceiling wide glass window. We put our bathing suits on and walked to the hot springs, passing superbly landscaped scenery. The cascading series of interesting shaped pools were a... More
