Just returned from Costa Rica. We stayed at The Springs for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip. It was fantastic.
As many of the reviewers have described the hotel in depth, I will include only a few details from our stay.
The general manager, Joey, was extremely attentive as was all of the staff. More than once, he stopped in the middle of his busy day to assist us or see to a request.
Our group consisted of two couples. We stayed in the Villa Calatea 2 Bedroom villa. It was a phenomenal setup for the four of us. The room rate was much reduced because it was the low season when we visitied. For us it was a great value considering what we received in return.
Despite the low number of guests, most hotel facilities seemed to be well staffed. The food was great for what we wanted to eat.
The pools were incredible. Everything from 78 degree to 103 degree pools that I could find. There were waterfalls, swim up bar, infinity edges. There were many, many pools which made it easy to find a quiet place if you wanted.
The remote location did make quick trips into town difficult. My recommendation would be to take any groceries with you on the way to the hotel-- drinks, food, etc. The only reason to go anywhere after arrival would be for tours, etc and the occasional visit to La Fortuna downtown.
