We spent 4 days at the springs resort in march of 2012 The rooms are clean and spacious and the bathrooms big and clean. The windows are large without window treatments which makes the view of the volcano excellent. The birds are numerous. We had toucans right out our balcony. There are so many pools we did not get to... More

My daughter and I spent 3 nights here last week. The grounds and views were magnificent. The service met expectations as well. The food was fine but nothing to rave about. Our room and view (room 105) was memorable. We would definitely stay there again.

Made a long day trip from the Westin to use the spa & hot springs. The resort & view took my breath away, this alone makes me want to come back & stay here. My teenage kids loved the pools, hot tub, natural springs, exploring the resort and the buffet. For day guests, they offer lockers, showers with shampoo, conditioner,... More

The craftsmanship and beautiful of this hotel is something to see. This is our second time to Costa Rica the first we stayed on the beach and this time we want to see the volcano and enjoy the hot springs. The hot springs can be compared to a fountain of youth, you feel amazing soaking in the minerals every ache... More

Our first trip to Costa Rica was spent at the Tabacon. We recently returned from a second trip where we stayed at The Springs. Here's a comparison: Springs was absolutely beautiful, definitely 5-star - Tabacon more of a 4-star, but still beautiful. We only had a room at the Tabacon, but a family suite at The Springs, which offered an... More

Spent two nights here and throughly enjoyed the stay. Rooms were fairly basic, but clean. Indoor/outdoor shower was great. Enjoyed sitting on the chairs on the front porch and looking at the volcano. Hot springs and pool were great and varied for the size of the resort. The staff. with the exception of the desk staff, were great and very... More

Stayed here for 2 nights last week. Property is absolutely gorgeous and rooms are incredible. Locals all agree that this is Arenal's best and most luxurious resort. Tabacon's hot springs are known as more "authentic," but The Springs' facilities are far superior. We stayed in Room 320, which had separate twin bedroom for the kids. Great view of volcano from...

I am not sure if my new bride and I were just spoiled too much at the Westin the previous few days of our honeymoon in Costa Rica or what; but this place was MUY TERRIBLE!!! The facilities are gorgeous for faux rock and springs; the views were amazing from our "upgraded" honeymoon suite. We absolutely had the time of... More

We have just completed 5 days at The Springs Resort and Spa in Cost Rica.....what an amazing vacation. This is probably one of the best resorts we have ever stayed, and the staff were extremely friendly and knowledgable of activities and adventures. I would recommend this place to anyone without concern!

5 star hotel all over. Spent a day at the spa and hot springs, had a blast. The hotel is a little bit off the main roads in the forest. It's so nice. Has a beautiful view of the Arenal volcano (if it's not cloudy, which is most of the time), great secluded relaxation hot tubs for couples or small... More
