We went on a family trip with 18 to Costa Rica--ages 8-74. We stayed at Arenal Springs Resort for two nights. Our entire group loved this place. It's the most similar to a typical American resort than any of the four other places we stayed in Costa Rica. The view of the Arenal volcano was absolutely gorgeous. The accommodations are... More

The location can't be beat! The service from staff was average at best. The food and drinks were over priced and not very good. The views and location are the only thing saving this hotel from being a total dud.

What a fantastic and beautiful resort!!! Upon arrival we were greeted with beautiful cocktails and helpful and informative staff who made sure that our check-in was easy.

We arrived quite late but check in was very smooth. A buggy took us to our chalet bungalow. It was clean and well furnished. The views of the volcano in the morning were fabulous. The various thermal pools were amazing. A very peaceful location. We really enjoyed out time here.

We spent three nights here, and loved all of them. Our cabin was pristine and very comfortable, with an amazing view of Volcan Arenal from the porch. Hot springs and fresh water pools can both be found right near the spa. One of the warmer pools has a swim-up bar which offers a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, quesadillas,... More

Fantastic location with great view of the Volcano. Staff in all departments were super friendly, helpful and smiling all the time. Care and attention taken in all their facilities such as the pool, restaurants and their gardens really gave us a relaxing stay. My only disappointment was that wine by the glass in their main restaurant Ti Cain was extremely... More
