Finally found a good deal and went for it. Although we didn't have much luck with the weather, we managed to enjoy the best out of the hotel. From the warm pools to morning yoga, we found every detail to be just right. Not too much nor too little, food was great and best of all, the service. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for three nights and were thoroughly impressed. The staff was incredible - every single person was warm and welcoming, and always a step or two ahead of us. The grounds were beautiful, very well kept and impeccable. The villa was great, with a hammock and seating area viewing the volcano and lush surroundings. The concierge helped us... More

There was both an indoor and outdoor shower, granite countertops in the bathroom, bed was very comfortable and the room itself was very spacious. The concierge, Noily was here name,... More

If you have any debate if you should make the trip up to Arenal to Nayara Springs stop debating and make your reservation now! In fact splurge and book the Spring Villa you will NEVER regret it. Every aspect of this resort is incredible. The staff including the golf cart transportation staff, dining room staff, check in staff, spa &... More

Wow, this place is seriously luxurious. We are not luxury hotel people, we camp and really like cabins but this was a very nice break from tradition. The grounds are absolutely stunning with their well manicured but still naturally abundant flora. Magnificent tropical flowers every where and enough palms to create a lot of privacy. We stayed in a casita... More

I booked us in a canopy room for our one night stay, only to find we had been upgraded to a rain forest suite when we arrived. Words cannot describe our delight in receiving this upgrade. The room was fabulous and very private. The property itself is a rain forest jungle making the walkways almost like tunnels. Upon the checking... More

Best thing about the hotel: a great view of the volcano from our own very private sundeck. But it's not the only thing - the room was enormous, with a huge dressing area and both indoor and outdoor showers. The deck itself was similarly spacious with sitting area, hammock and Jacuzzi. The service is good, although it sometimes felt as... More

We stayed here for 5 days after getting married in Guanacaste. What a treat! About the room: Our deck had an amazing view of the volcano (I think rooms from mid 30's-40's have this view) in addition to a jacuzzi and hammock. We were able to spot a variety of birds from our deck and saw the resident sloths almost... More
