“Great experience, Jeff and Jill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

An amazing place with amazing people that really care. We traveled from Florida to Costa Rico for the first time and it was better than we imagined. The resort was one of the nicest we have ever been to and we travel a good deal so I feel comfortable saying this. The rooms were big and over the top beautiful with so many amenities you do not normally see, like DVD players, free movies and free wi-fi. The resort has so much to offer as far as activities. We loved the jungle cat tour and the monkeys in particular

Absolutely great time. Incredible service, food, views, pools, you name it they have it and its better than anywhere else. It is not that expensive as people say, 20 for buffet, sushi is a dollar more per roll than in states. 4.50 local beers. If you looking for a quite get away with not very many people around this is the place!

A resort that has everything! Large beautiful modern rooms with fantastic views of Arenal Volcano. Hot springs of various temperatures abound with waterfalls in a natural setting.. Offers plenty of outdoor activities on the property from horse back riding, white water rafting to tubing. I had a great deep tissue massage in the luxurious spa. Hotel is first class with great restaurants and great service. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: All rooms face the volcano and are built into the hillside. A golf cart service is available if you...

I had an outstanding time in this resort. I celebrated my 30th bday here and theres no other way i would've wanted to spend it. The service was on point. The food was very good. The springs were relaxing and perfect after a long day. John the manager was very nice and knowledgable and made my experience that much better. Overrall it was top knot ch. I recommend it to everyone young or old.

We went here as our first stop on our honeymoon and I only wish that we had stayed here the entire trip! The hot springs were incredible the room with a view was amazing and the dinner and bars were great! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a classy nice place to stay free from stress, loud noise and the world. I felt like I was on a private island with just my husband.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the volcano

One of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at! From the time you walk in to the resort the staff makes you feel so welcome to the time you have to say your goodbyes. The room was amazing, we stayed in a 2 bd., since we have 2 16yr. boys. Had an amazing view of the volcano! Wonderful balcony with hammocks and chairs and tables to relax in the morning to have your coffee. We all loved the hot springs through out the resort, including the one with the water slide which was a blast! My boys loved that they had a pool table, chess and a full game room that they took advantage of at night. We went to the river down below and did the tubing which was a lot of fun, also did the night hike with the feeding of the cats which was a special treat. All of our meals were delicious, but our favorite was the sushi. Can't say enough about this resort, it was definitely somewhat of a splurge for us but well worth it!!! We also did the sky trek zip lining which was great fun! You can't go wrong with The Springs Resort.

Although I didnt stay at The Springs, I did spend 2 days enjoying the amenities at the resort. From the hot springs to the pool bar-the horseback riding and rain forest walk through...EVERYTHING was amazing. JOHN, the Operations Manager was amazing. He completely made sure we knew what the property had to off and set up everything for us! I was surprised considering we weren't guests at the hotel, that he took such great care of us. He was knowledgeable about the property, city and country (also suggesting other places and sights for us to check out). He was/is definitely an asset to The Springs Resort and the next time I'm in the area, I'm definitely booking my room there!
