I stayed my first 3 nights here while traveling in costa rica with my younger sister. It had such breathtaking views of the volcano every morning right outside the window. The service and people there were wonderful! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. You should know that the electricity shuts off when you leave the room to save on... More

The hotel was a wonderful place to stay at. The rooms had a really great view of the volcano and felt very serene. Staff is also very friendly and our overall stay was pleasurable. Breakfast was a little ok and could have been better. Recommended to stay.

Our group conisted of 4 adult ladies (3 generations). We took the Arenal Volcano Tour, Cano Negro River tour, Baldi Hot Springs, and we all did the Canopy zipline! Everything was organized through Pacific Winds Trade Tours.and at night saw the lava flow down form the volcanoe. we thoroughly enjoyed the area. Went into La fortuna twice.

My husband and I found the staff charming and so very helpful, especially the tour advisors. The gardens so lovely, we became bird watchers while there. We returned so well rested, inspite of our vigorous schedule, that we have the engery to plan our return visit.

We stayed at the Arenal Springs resort for three nights in September 2009. What a beautiful place to stay! One of the best hotels we've stayed in during our trip to Costa Rica. Spacious bungalows with a beautiful volcano-view. Friendly staff (they changed our flat tire ;-) and a delicious breakfast. In the bar, they serve the biggest glasses of... More

Our first 3 days started at Arenal Springs Resort and was a perfect choice! It had the most beautiful grounds of the 3 hotels/resorts that we stayed at while in Costa Rica. The complimentary buffet breakfast was top notch in the beautiful open air restaurant overlooking the pool. The service was superb and very helpful at the front desk. Every... More

We stayed two days at this resort. The food was excellent but the hospitality of the front-desk staff was really superb. With our limited Spanish we were able to communicate easily and get suggestions for excursions and directions. The staff greeted us with a cool and refreshing drink at check-in which was greatly appreciated after a long drive. The scenary... More

An awesome experience. There's something about waking up, stepping about your door, and seeing the Arenal dominating the view. The hotel is on a sprawling campus that allows as much privacy as you'd want, with parking spots for each room to save a walk if you've rented a car. The pool, complete with a poolside bar, is gorgeous and a... More

As we took the long drive from the SJO to the hotel, we were tired and ready to relax. Arenal Springs was the exact place we needed. The rooms had a nice outdoor cabin feel to it and was very peaceful. We went to dinner that evening and enjoyed a great meal in the resturant. With no walls we were... More
