My wife and i, two teenage sons and father-in-law stayed for 5 nights the last week of June. All accomodations are attached villas that face the volcano, which is an incredible sight to wake up to. Rooms are clean and beds are great. Incredible breakfast..and its free! We ate dinner in the hotel 2 nights and the food was good... More

Our stay at Arenal Springs was booked for us by a tour company, and we were pleasantly surprised by how lovely it was. Upon arrival we were greated by a friendly receptionist who informed us that they made the best Pina Coladas known to man... while waiting for a taxi we found out this was true. Our room was a...

Of the three areas we stayed in Costa Rica (the other two being Monteverde and Guanacaste), we enjoyed Arenal the best. We loved the impressive view of the volcano, the open-air restaurant, the beautiful grounds (including the butterfly farm), and the politeness and helpfulness of the staff.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly. Our room was great. They could probably update the bedspread as they seemed a little old and worn but they were clean. Bed was okay but hated the pillows. Just my preference, as husband thought they were okay. The shower is really amazing. The view out the... More

The rooms are more like cottages with big picture window views of the volcano and rocking chairs on the front patio also facing the volcano. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and well-kept. Great breakfast with custom made omelets. Most impressive was the friendly and helpful staff. They found a credit card in the room and contacted me before I realized... More

We recently had our wedding reception hosted at the Hotel Arenal Springs and the staff were nothing short of fantastic. At 100+ guests (we live in CR), this was quite a bit larger than the typical "destination wedding", and everyone came through and made it an amazing experience (Miguel was a tremendous help every step of the way).

Very nice hotel, lovely view with big windows facing the volcano. Smallish pool for the size of the hotel Decent resaturant. Neg on the price if off peak. Can get better locations for a closer view but a nice hotel for the price.

We started our trip to Costa Rica at this resort and were very pleased. The view from our room was incredible and the service wonderful. We used it as base camp for our day adventures and liked being able to come back and relax around the pool (especially the swim-up bar!). The spa is under utilized, probably becasue the prices...

We were truly impressed with the resort and hotel staff. We needed to alter our reservation and Miguel and his staff worked hard to meet our changes... After we departed and arrived in San Jose, we realized we'd left our cell phone in the room. We called the hotel and they arranged to have it delivered the next day....as they... More
