My family of five stayed at The Springs for 2 nights in March 2013. We all wanted to stay longer and would return in a heartbeat.
The resort is beautiful and serene. From nearly every location you have a gorgeous view of the Arenal Volcano. The many pools are wonderful.
My kids (ages 14, 12 and 9) also loved the activities floor with the open-air pool table, dart board, chess board, and more.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious, but the patios with private hammocks are the cherry on top. My husband said that waking up in the luxurious room with that gorgeous view of the volcano made him feel like he was Mick Jagger.
The only minor complaint is that a very strange set-list of bad 1980s pop music played in all the public areas. Aside from that, the resort is perfection.
The breakfast buffet was terrific and well priced. The other meals were fine. Drinks a the various bars were quite good!
Our only Club Rio activity was tubing. It was just our family of five plus the two guides who were personable and fun.
We drove from Liberia. The roads were nicely paved. The switchback curves made the kids feel carsick but overall the drive was no trouble.
