“The Springs was MORE than gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2010

We just had the most wonderful experience at the beautiful Springs Resort at Arenal.
The facility was brand new, and we learned that most all of the fixtures, beds, furniture and accessories were made on site by local artisans. We could see a spectacular view of the Arenal Volcano from every inch of the place - from our beds, from the hot springs, from the bar - it was breathtaking.
The staff was so nice, friendly and helpful. And, Joey, the manager was always nearby to make sure we were treated like royalty!

Upon waking my first morning at the Springs I rolled over to see the most spectacular wiew of the volcano. At first it seemed faked as beauty of this caliper is rare. 2 hours later I found myself still enjoying the richness of the outside beauty. After leaving the room I discovered a resort with every amenity required for a pleasurable stay. Don't miss the water slide into the warm pool at the bottom. A must for all travelers

The Springs Resort & Spa is the most beautiful resort that I have been to {I have traveled to many, many places}. The staff for starters is top notch, always professional, kind and courteous. The owner Lee Banks, happen to be there, goes out of his way to make sure that you enjoy your stay, you can often hear him telling tourists about how The Springs was built {there have been times where he got in a ditch and helped himself}. The food, the view, the Hot Mineral Springs are just a few things that make this property 5 stars and above. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to experience a piece of heaven.

The springs made me feel a though I was on fantasy island in a luxurlous setting. So many activities are available that you can't get bored. The staff was first notch and the food and serivce were lacking nothing to be desired. You can't go wrong at this place.

A 5-star 44 room secluded hotel built by an American couple a few years ago overlooking the spectacular view of Arenal volcano. Natural hot springs, fine dining, fabulous service, completely off the beaten path. Highly recommend.

The Springs is a truly special place. We arrived after sunset, so we were amazed when the first thing we saw as we awoke in the morning was a perfect view of the volcano from our bed. The grounds are beautifiully manicured and the scenery was gorgeous. The staff was attentive and extremely helpful in suggesting activities that were great for everyone in our group, which had a 70 year age swing. The water slide is a blast, and the pools make you wonder why you didn't book a longer stay. All of our meals were 5 star, but we especially loved the sushi bar for a fun, relaxed bite. The Springs has something for everyone - the options abound and the staff is extremely skilled at guiding you in the right direction. I recommend this resort to everyone I know who is headed to Costa Rica.
