When we decided to get married in Costa Rica, we had a difficult time deciding what type of wedding we wanted; beach or rainforest. The first area we stayed in Costa Rica 3 years ago was the Arenal area, so the area had a special place in our heart and hence we made our decision to get married in Arenal.... More

My husband, myself and 13 year old son stayed at The Springs Mar 14-18. It is quite an adventure to get here, but so worth it. The staff was friendly, efficient & courteous from our check in to our meal servers to house keeping. Our room was the Alta Vista room on the second floor and the scenery was breath... More

The Springs was an experience of a lifetime. When we needed help, there was someone to help us, but staff were careful to let us experience the seclusion of the resort. There is an incredible feeling of peacefulness, exclusivity, and luxury. The natural fed hot springs were amazing too! We stayed in the honeymoon suite where we were able to... More

Didn't actually stay in the hotel - our tour bus brought us here to enjoy the hot springs and a dinner. I found the premises very beautiful, even though other reviewers commented on how artificial it all is. Well call me a fool but I was awestruck at the views from the hotel and the luxurious (albeit artificial) surroundings. The... More

Only go here if you fully appreciate that it is like staying in Disney land. If you like that type of thing, you will love it. If not, read on... The staff here are excellent. That has to be said first off because my "average" rating does not reflect them at all. The reason that I am giving it "average"... More

The Springs is truly a magical place, with only 48 rooms, but a property to accommodate hundreds, you would never have to see other guests if you desire seclusion. You almost get a feeling that the resort is a little oasis in the jungle made for you ad only you (and the friendly staff you help you with everything you... More

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon and our expectations were exceeded with everything. They have a ton of activities and animals right on the property. The food was great, but the service was over the top excellent!

A disney like setting. Hot springs, pools, beautiful gardens, outdoor entertainment area. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The room was probably the best we have ever been in. The town of Fortuna was pretty. The hotel staff arranged for the driver who stayed in the area until we were ready to leave.
