As you arrive, the lobby bar greets you with a fresh tropical fruit juice. Every cabina at this resort has a spectacular view of Arenal Volcano. The cabinas are essentially duplexes that have their own patio with rockers and an end table for you to relax and enjoy the view of the volcano. Each cabina also has a floor to... More

All I can say is that you can't beat the view from this resort. All rooms are situated on a hill so that you have an unobstructed view of the Arenal Volcano. We were lucky enough to be there when the sky was clear and I think we sat almost all afternoon looking at it from our patio on rocking... More

Simply put, this is a great resort. The people are very helpful. The food is amazing. The rooms are amazing. The pools are very well kept and the swim up bar and sushi bar is great. Highly recommended.

Was here for three nights with the spouse as part of a week-long vacation to Costa Rica. Beautiful, relaxing place: good food, extremely hospitable and friendly staff, comfortable rooms. Has a great thermal pool with swim-up bar and sushi. Really couldn't find a single thing to complain about our stay, but it's not within walking distance of any village, so... More

Great vacation destination. Pleasing staff.expensive restaurant, though. Loved the breakfast buffet. And the sushi was really really good! Our booking was made through Pacific Trade Winds, who I would recommend. Booked flights on our own with Spirit Airlines who I WILL NEVER FLY WITH AGAIN

My husband and I stayed at the Arenal Springs Resort for two nights in April 2013. This resort was so amazing, from check-in to check-out! At check-in you are greeted with a smile and a delicious fruity drink! The property is very large and if you aren't close to the main registration/restaurant area its pretty cool because they have a... More

Our overall stay here was ok! The staff are very nice and are keen to help. However the food isn't very good , it's over priced and very greasy. The breakfast buffet is nice apart from the million bugs flying around the food which put me off. The grounds are beautiful. The rooms aren't very clean if I'm being honest,... More

Beautiful view of the Volcano! The pools were great, hot springs very relaxing. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Grounds and pools were kept very well, and clean. The only thing that was a little uncomfortable was the beds, they were hard. But we really had a great time and would recommend it for the relaxing pools, beautiful plants and trees... More

This is a great hotel in the Arenal area. Every room has a view of the volcano set as small houses with 2 rooms in each. Pools are great and well maintained. To me the grounds were the true selling point. Every " house" has its own lawn and garden. And the property is landscaped beautifully. The staff was very... More

We stayed here for a few nights in April 2013 and the resort is lovely. The pools/springs are great, the rooms are nice (though we could sometimes hear the people next door - this wasnt an issue for us but it could be if you get noisy neighbours or are particularly bothered by this) and you have a fantastic view...
