You pay for the gardens and view of volcano. Rooms are decent; clean, spacious with basic amenities including large balcony, Wi-Fi, AC (necessary due to humidity), TV with lots of US channels, fridge, coffee maker. Huge two-person non-jetted tub, but unfortunately not enough hot water available to take a bath. Once filled an inch, the hot water turned cold. No... More

We visited Arenal Springs Resort as part of a large tour group. The layout of the rooms gives everyone a view of Arenal Volcano. Lovely buffet meal choices - lots of fresh fruits - everything from pancakes to individually-made omelets for breakfast. Swimming pool with swim-up bar. Another patio bar, lounge area at the foot of Arenal. Beautiful walk-in tiled... More

Everything good said about the resort is true. Because of rain and clouds I never saw the top of the volcano, never the less, I could not have stayed at a better place for any price. Only one suggestion. I booked an all inclusive package, so lunch and dinner were included at the resort. The problem is we could only... More

By far the most pleasant resort I have stayed at. The staff were beyond friendly and informative. The resort itself was meticulously maintained with beautiful gardens and truly displayed the flora of the region including name plackards of the plants you were viewing.

From the moment we checked in we felt right at home. The lady at the reception desk was very helpful with information about the resort and the activities in the areas. We came specifically to see the volcano and do zip lining along with horseback riding and were successful thanks to Arenal Springs. We did a last minute booking and... More

Beautiful hotel! The Jr. Suites are large with excellent, full views of Arenal Volcano. Upon arrival, you are greeted with a delicious tropical drink and the reception staff are very welcoming and accommodating.

Arenal Springs Resort was a beautiful! The grounds, the rooms, the view. I think the part we enjoyed most might have been sitting on our front porch every evening drinking Costa Rican rum and waiting to see the volcano. The pool was warm and had a swim up bar. The only draw-back was the resort was too far from town... More
