What a luxury! A beautiful hotel in an unbelievable location. Made us laugh that such a high class hotel would be off such a bumpy road but we totally understood the longer that we were in Costa Rica that that's just how Costa Rica is!!!!! Lots to do actually at the resort The hidden springs were our favorite, no it... More

A jewel "out in the middle of nowhere", the Springs is one of the most beautiful properties we visited in Costa Rica. We only went there on a day pass (at night), to use the hot springs and have a wonderful dinner. Towels were provided, and there are 2 types of hot springs: filtered and unfiltered. The unfiltered springs were... More

This hotel is a great place. My 14 year daughter and I went to this region for the zip lines but the hotel turned out to be the greater suprise. While the facilities and grounds are very nice the people are great. They were very helpful and quite pleasant. Our room was beautiful. Very plush with a huge bathroom. The... More

We had a great time. Beautiful hotel. Loved the springs down at club Rio. I love it so much we are returning in late August. Make sure you tell your driver the you are going to "The Springs". The view from the room has an amazing view of the volcano. Lots of activities to do for adults and kids.

The beauty of Arenal and the Springs Resort and Spa is spectacular! The resort, the rooms, the service, the views, and the hot springs are all amazing! We really enjoyed our stay at the Springs while visiting this area in Costa Rica. There are many activity options right on the property as well. The one disappointment to us was the... More

We traveled to this resort with our two children (ages 5 and 8). The staff was incredibly friendly and treated our children like family. Although the photos may imply that this is a very large resort, it is not, and even if it is at capacity, you will not feel the presence of a crowd. If you want privacy you... More

The space granted by tripadvisor is too small to do justice to the Springs. Set in the tropical rainforest of Costa Rica with views dominated by the cone of the Arenal volcano, this is far more than "where Disneyland meets Indiana Jones". Pricey by absolute standards, its facilities provide incredible value for money. While superlatives are hard to avoid, the... More

My friend, My husband and I were thrilled when we arrived in The springs Resort...greeted by a lovely staff member who showed us around, after first giving us a fruit libation. There are so many things to do...or you can just relax and enjoy the hot springs and also see a view of the Volcano from every room...outstanding architecture...fantastic service.... More
