Really lovely hotel built down the side of a mountain facing Arenal Volcano. Beautiful hotel, really nice people. Lovely pools and hot springs. Nice activities. Loved the views from the hotel, enjoyed being there, but no desire to return. Something just a little off.

My husband and I spent a wonderful 3 days here in September. We spent half of the week on the beach at the Four Seasons and then made the journey up to this beautiful property. In the end, we wished we had spent more time here. We had great luck with the weather at both locations- it was clear and...

I do not have one complaint about this property. The service is simply outstanding and the property absolutely stunning. Every detail of the property is immaculate. Some may say a little over the top but when you are spoiling yourself, a little bit of "over the top" is fine by me. I should mention the food as well as we...

First class property with plenty to do on property. Friendly staff, with plenty of restaurants, a spa, hot springs on site. Staff is extremely caring and friendly. It has its own area called Club Rio, with a zoo, hot springs, horseback riding and tubing - a great surprise addition. Highly recommended. One draw back - the road into the resort...

Visited the Springs resort as part of our trip around Costa Rica. The place is stunning and the staff are very friendly. If not a little too friendly. Sometimes it feels they are being paid to be nice and not the natural hospitality you receive from the locals. The spring pools are set out around the resort and although in...

We decided to try this property based on the many rave reviews which are usually a good predictor for our experience, but we were disappointed in this case. There is much to like about this hotel, especially the wonderful views, polished service and luxurious accommodations, which I don't fault, but it's not for every taste. The hotel is set far...

From the moment we arrived - from the opening intro to the hotel, the quality of amenities, facilities and service exceed many other experiences. Rooms are expansive, immaculate, and richly appointed. Staff is well trained and infinitely attentive and gracious. Food in all areas was outstanding. Be prepared for plenty of rain. We planned many excursions but spent a lot...

We bought a two day hot springs package. It was beautiful and very relaxing. The grounds are well kept and the water is definitely hot. Wonderful waterfall to lay under as well. Also visited the restaurant-the food is good but certainly overpriced. The drinks are average overall. We enjoyed our visit overall

We spent 2 nights in the Villa Calatea and it was absolutely stunning! Plenty of room for 5 of us (2 adults and 3 children). The rooms were clean and the views from every window were amazing. The complimentary golf cart and private plunge pool were also a great hit. We ordered room service for breakfast and lunches and ate...
