We loved this resort! It was truly beautiful, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was definitely above average. It's a good idea to stick with the native dishes rather than something you've had "back home" and then expect it to taste the same. The rooms were clean and comfortable, volcano views superb. The concierge suggested a great horseback riding/waterfall hike tour that was outstanding. (Lobo's tours, which I'll review separately). Cab into town was $10, and it was very safe to walk around at night. The Lava Lounge had live music. The resort's grounds are truly outstanding. We started our mornings in the grotto-like jacuzzi watching hummingbirds flutter 3 ft. away! Spent days in activities and came back to the gorgeous, relaxing hot springs... Never crowded and often completely private. We asked about yoga class and when we learned we were too late (8am class), she arranged for a private class later in the day for us at the same price. Now THAT'S service! Some reviews commented on hard beds. The mattresses were firm, but we did not find them uncomfortable. Also loved the plants in the shower! I travel extensively, and Arenal Springs has definitely been added to my list of favorite places!
