All I can say is WOW!! My boyfriend and I stayed at The Springs Resort during our week long trip to Costa Rica for his birthday and we had the time of our lives. Everything here is Amazing! I said Everything and I do mean everything!!! The property itself is wonderfully beautiful. We arrived on a cloudy day but even in the midst of that, my breath was taken away. We have stayed in many 5 star resorts and hotels in various countries and this is by far the best one! The room provided a perfect view of the Volcano and on the clear days we were able to see the entire volcano. Everything the resort offered was delivered to the highest standard. The service was impeccable, the staff was outstanding and they were willing to meet our every need and so accommodating of our wants. They began to know us by name very soon.
The suite was above what we had expected. Of course it was very clean and had all the amenities you'd need, plasma TV, iPod station, nice mini bar, jetted tub, huge shower, comfortable King size bed and an AMAZING VIEW of the Volcano!!! That view was the best part!! The room was out of a storybook somewhere.
Every tour guide we had was Great!! We went kayaking with Daniel and Marie, ATVing with Andre and his cousin, Palasio was an amazing tour guide, we saw all the animals on the property and the hot springs were wonderful!!! Every staff member we came across greeted us pleasantly and was willing to help us out with anything we needed. They have so many activities to occupy you on the resort that if you didn't want to, you wouldn't have to leave the huge 100+ acre resort.
The restaurants were pretty good. We really enjoyed the sushi bar and watching Monday Night Football in Spanish at the bar lol! The Sushi bar was the by far the best restaurant in our opinion but the other restaurants had tasty items as well.
I had an opportunity to go to the Spa and that was amazing too. It provided for a relaxing evening and a nice wind down from all of the day's busy activities.
I have no complaints about our experience there and would only say stay here for as long as you can!!!!! I was sad to leave the resort but I know that I will be back again. Thank you Costa Rica for being so beautiful and thank you The Springs Resort for capturing all of the beauty that Arenal had to offer!!!!
