First of all this Resort is amazing!! We were upgraded to the Palm Bungalow and it was the best honeymoon ever! Amazing views, private hot tub, patio, hammocks and our own golf cart. We will never get a normal room again because the bungalow was awesome! Loved the outdoor shower as well! Natural springs are fun to experience as well....

It's been several months since we were there, and all my kids ask is that we go back to The Springs. Not to Costa Rica, to The Springs specifically. The place is great. Nice, big, beautiful rooms + golf carts (you do not drive them, unless you're in the Presidential Suite, but once in a while we would catch a...

The Springs Hotel near the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica is where the celebrities and famous people stay, and for a reason. The hotel is a dream. Impeccable service, outstanding amenities, a view to die for (when the volcano is visible), and enough activities on- and off-site to keep children, teenagers, and adults busy for an entire week. Restaurants are...

I didn't realize when we booked this place that there would be so many different activities available. We were able to go tubing on the river, visit the hot springs and visit the animal sanctuary, but I felt like we would have to go back for a week to get it all done. The restaurants on the property are amazing....

Amazing! This place has it all, we visited in May and were concerned about it being the "rainy" season, however we were blessed with daily (and constantly changing) views of the volcano. There is not a place on site without a view, the springs were amazing and staff was very friendly and accommodating at every encounter. This place has definitely...

Usually I am all about leaving the resort regularly to adventure (which under normal circumstances I totally would have done plenty of times - the road to town is really not that bad or that far) but my father got seriously injured before the trip and could barely walk with crutches. I was worried about how we would fare but...

We loved The Springs Resort and Spa. I am particular about hotels, but I was pleased with every aspect of this resort. The room was spacious with plenty of storage space for a family of five. The pull out sofa and day bed had full size mattresses as opposed to the typical thin mattresses. The view from the sizable balcony...

This resort was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. After two weeks in the heat of Playa Samara, we chose Arenal as our next destination to cool off and relax. Could not have picked a better place than the Springs. Absolutely first class and you have a choice of hot springs and activities. Wish we could have stayed...

The hotel was our first stop coming from NY, we stayed there 4 nights and it was absolutely magical. The view of the volcano is out of this world, you can see it from any corner on the property and any room. To wake up to this view is something very special. The resort is absolutely beautiful. The room was...
