The rooms and grounds are close to 5 star quality. The food drags the place down from top notch. Overall, a very positive place to stay. Stay here, but eat in La Fortuna. The hot springs are nice and there is a gym if you don't get worn out hiking, rafting or sight seeing.

We have just spent two nights at this hotel. Arriving in the evening we were stunned by the views the following morning when we opened our curtains. The rooms are all semi-detached bungalows, offering almost 100% privacy. We had our own veranda with table and chairs to sit and enjoy the view of the magnificent volcano. Rooms were spotlessly clean...

To be fair, first I have to admit that we came from an eco resort along the Pacific side of Costa Rica. Arriving at Arenal Springs Resort and Spa was a culture shock. It is very big and commercial, whereas we left a mountainside, small, and very friendly location where guests and staff alike knew everyone's names. The junior suite...

The first thing you notice is the friendliness of all of the staff, nothing is too much trouble ,Cesar on reception remembered our names throughout our stay and made effort to make sure we were comfortable. The ONLY negative about it is the pricing of food and beverage, $24 for pizza when local restaurants in town charge $8 is extortionate...

Lovely hotel with an amazing view of the volcano. The pools can be a private oasis depending on how busy it is. Cab to La Fortuna (closest city) is $10-12 (American Dollars) and about $25 to the Arenal National Park. Staff is very friendly and accommodating to needs, plus free yoga in the morning to start your day. Breakfast is...

Nice location. Very good potential but does not get full score with fish taken from the freezer and into the microwave in the sushi bar. Very good spa and hot spring area. The concierge is very good and overall gives the best impression of the place.

Typical resort hotel where the majority of the guests were families with children. The spa center was worth a visit, while you can stay clear of the Italian restaurant. The same goes for the sushi bar, where I'm pretty sure that they defrosted the salmon in the microwave. The main restaurant saved the day with their steak dinners. All in...

This is a modern, clean, comfortable, deluxe resort. We stayed in one of the bungalows which meant we had our own porch and front lawn. My father is mobility-impaired so we needed a motorcart transport to go anywhere on the grounds and it was always just one phone call and two minutes away whenever we wanted. The staff were always...

This resort is decorated beautifully. The flowers and trees make it look great. The top hot springs are very warm and relaxing, but as you go down it gets colder. The staff is nice and accommodating and the lobby is very luxurious. The spa is reasonably priced and now for the bad. The wifi is horrible. It can only be...
