An amazing resort that delivered wonderful accommodations, meals and all the hot springs one can imagine, all in a well designed natural setting with great views. The staff was exceptional, friendly and welcoming. Made our special family trip a memory of a lifetime.

We went there as part of a tour to the Arenal volcano; we had a one-day pass that allowed us to use the pools and the restaurant. Beautiful view of the volcano from the resort, the food was great and the hot springs just incredible!...More
