Here one of the episodes of the US hit series ‘The Bachelor’ was filmed several years back. Their hot pools were man­-made and sleek, but fed with natural,... More

Just returned from a two-week mother-daughter trip to Costa Rica. The Springs was our first stop and was by far the best. We booked the most basic double and were upgraded without asking to a higher floor view room. We enjoyed the well-appointed room, complete with awesome, exotic floral arrangement, much appreciated air conditioning, free wifi, and the most comfortable... More
