“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2008

Stayed 2 nights at this magnificent resort and hope to return again soon. Our Vista Room was large, comfortable, and beautifully furnished and in addition, had a great view of the Arenal Volcano.

We dined at all of the restaurants on site. Food was well prepared, reasonably priced and great service. We had dinner one night at Las Ventanas and were able to see lights of surrounding cities for several miles.

The multi-level pools and hot springs throughout the property were gorgeous, lushly landscaped and well maintained. One of the pools offered a swim up bar (La Laguna Bar) with wicker chairs submerged around the bar for comfortable seating while having a cocktail in the pool.

Many thanks to the wonderful staff who went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything needed to make our stay perfect.

Words are not enough to describe this incredible resort so I have included several photos - enjoy!

One word to describe The Springs - "HEAVEN". Even during construction, the place is fabulous! The staff is very attentive and enjoyable. The food (I mainly had chicken) was terrific. The facility itself is kept extremely clean. During our 2.5 day stay, the pools were being cleaned on a rotated basis. The rooms and views were out of this world. The stay at The Springs was the highlight of our 10 day vacation to Costa Rica. The Springs is a vacation on its own merit and definitely worth the drive from La Fortuna. I visited with a group of friends...I am going back with my husband as soon as possible. Debbie D. from Wisconsin October 11-13, 2008

  • Liked — The view of the volcano, decor, food, rooms, and most of all - the hot springs!
  • Disliked — The current "road" to The Springs is not friendly. I was told that would be improved.
