Amazing hotel with superior rooms, large rooms with every amenity. Hot Springs are so many and so private you feel as though you could be the only guest in the resort. Good restaurants, superior staff. Have never had a better experience with our family of 16 on a multigenerational trip with 2 parents, 2 children with spouses and 8 grandchildren... More

Our first time here and this hotel was great. The whole property is portrayed as a tree house that is built along hot springs as well. Our room was beautiful with a view of the volcano. It was always clean the service was great. Tons of activities are available for kids and adults around the property. Most of the kids... More

We've been here 4 times, stayed 3 times. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The property is beautiful and back in the hills over 1 km so there is no road noise. You're greeted by the valet and cocktails. If you've never been here, they'll give you a personal tour of the property. You also get welcome cocktails and a personal golf cart ride... More

It is a great place to visit. Hotel very clean, friendly staff, great food, the best view to the Arenal Volcano... It is worth every $ you spend here. The activities at the Club Rio are amazing, the restaurants and their employees are great in customer service, they will do anything to go beyond your expectations. Definitively coming back!!!

I love this hotel. It was a beautiful place to stay with all of the greenery and flowering plants and 28 natural hot springs. The hotel staff was super helpful with all of our questions and helped arrange excursions we wanted to go on. I highly recommend booking everything through them as they provide the widest selection of activities and... More

This place is magical especially for a wedding!! My husband and I along with family and friends all stayed here for our wedding. The minute you step into the resort perched on a hill through a private road is like you were transported to another place. The view of the volcano is seen everywhere and is awe inspiring!!

This places deserves more than 5 stars. I have stayed at many resorts in the past. This one stands out the most. It is one of the best resorts I ever stayed in. First, location location. The resort is secluded for those want privacy and yet it closed to Arenal volcano and other excursions around the area. The resort is... More

We weren't sure if the $60 pp fee was worth it for a two-day pass to this resort's hot springs, especially since we had to pay $60 for our children as well (ages 8 and 11).
