This is a stunningly beautiful property with numerous unobstructed views of Arenal volcano. If I could I'd give it a 4.5 but it's closer to a 5 than a 4 for the well-matched traveler. The service is fantastic and the hot springs and pools are beautiful, serene and therapeutic. I am more of an urban-chic, eco traveler who prefers small... More

We did not stay at the resort but bought a day pass to access the hot springs. Simply incredible, it was truly like paradise. I highly recommend spending a good amount of time down at the springs near the river (the hotel offers a free shuttle to get down there - about 1km); they are the most natural and the... More

OH MY GOD, I seriously found heaven here. We did the excursions at Club Rio - horseback riding and water tubing. The staff there are so kind. We had Vanessa help us out and she was super sweet. There's lockers to store your stuff and transpiration within the resort to the parking lot. We took about an hour to horse... More

Our party of 5 had an incredible experience here. We enjoyed a villa with a private hot spring. Breakfast buffet was a winner... As was Club Rio and the wildlife sanctuary. I must recommend the spa. The treatments were fabulous! A must stay or you can obtain a day pass to enjoy the facilities.

We stayed at The Springs for 7 nights in January 2016. We could not have been more pleased. The service was wonderful and the attitude gracious. The resort is a destination all in itself. The rooms are large, with a great view of the volcano. Club Rio is a super bonus to the many hot springs and pools. The animals,... More

This is the place to stay in the area. We stayed for 3 nights, wishing we stayed longer. The food was above average, but not cheap. The buffet breakfast was enjoyable every morning. I highly recommend tubing at Club Rio! The guides were knowledgeable and fun. Gerald made sure were felt safe on the tube, and Jonathan gave us a... More

On top of all this, my fiance and I had the best Spa experience ever! incredibly relaxing and the pure definition of service with a smile. Would... More

My wife and our 2 teen boys stayed here In July. This is rainy season so it was to be expected we got some occasional rain. The resort was first class. Our room was very nice. We had a King suite with connecting two full beds. It was perfect for us to have some privacy but keep boys in our... More

My wife and I decided to spend our last day in La fortuna getting a day pass to the springs after we learned that even though the road to the springs was closed we could get transportation there from the resort. It was the best decision we made. Such a beautiful resort and such friendly staff. We had lunch, dinner... More
