We arrived on the first leg of our honeymoon to this tropical paradise. The service was outstanding and friendly, the food was excellent, and the springs were splendid. At breakfast every morning the staff ran like a well oil machine clearing plates and filling the buffet. If you got tired of watching that you certainly could stare at the bird... More

This was our second trip to the area. Our stay here at Arenal Springs was average in comparison to some of the other places we've stayed. The food was average nothing spectacular.

Coming from a well traveled couple, Arenal Springs Resort is a romantic destination with pristine property. The hot springs are on site and amazing. The way they are nestled amongst the landscaping is stunning and are secluded and romantic. Service is spectacular with unbelievable volcano views. Kudos to Romario who works at the front desk. His customer service skills are... More

This resort was amazing and I could have stayed here my entire time in Costa Rica.

We stayed here three nights in February 2014. The welcome by staff was friendly, especially by those on the desk. Arenal Volcano was visible from all of the straight-in-a-line cabins, but of course weather dependant; we were lucky to have some clear spells with little cloud cover. The grounds were pleasant and well maintained, if a little over-manicured; the walking... More

Not only did the weather cooperate, the rooms were amongst the nicest and largest I've stayed in. Hot tub, jaccuzi, and an outdoor shower in our room alone. Excellent service. Serves as either a romantic get away or a family friendly holiday. Plenty to do in the region. Very much worth the trip.

We stayed here for 3 nights halfway through our tour of Costa Rica. We could not fault anything, apart from the fact we never got to see the top of the volcano!
