Just returned from the springs for a 10th anniversary trip with the kids. Our room was lovely and the hot springs were very nice. The resort is very clean and housekeeping was fantastic. Some of the staff went out of the way but others ignored you. The breakfast buffet is varied but otherwise the food is awful and it is... More

This property is simply stunning; from the rich warm woodwork that adorns the walls, to the beautifully tiled flooring, and amazing views from nearly every inch of the main building and guest rooms. Upon arrival we were promptly greeted by the staff, given a quick tour of the property, which included a cold beverage that tasted very good after our... More

This is a huge facility and actually pretty fun, even for a 59-year old couple! There are several different types of restaurants and many, many pools, with about half of them being fed by natural hot springs. The pools are man made, pretty tastefully, and several are connected. We had these pools to ourselves many times. We even made a... More

This is the place to go if you have an active family. We loved the tubing and horseback riding-- all on property. There is a fun and fast waterslide that splashes you down into a 93 degree mineral pool. The kids loved it. After you are done with your hiking or other adventure there are countless thermal pools to relax... More

This was one of my favourite hotels I've ever been too. There was lots to do here, but also plenty of places to relax. The property was amazing. It was lush and had amazing views of the volcano. We stayed in the Toucan building and the room was exceptional. The view while just lying in our bed was so great,... More

The Springs in Costa Rica is an amazing haven of relaxation and beauty. The design of our room, which was the baseline (Vista Guest Room, first level), felt as if just as much thought and beauty went into the design as any other venue at the property. Our room, with a king bed, had a bathroom that almost 1/2 the... More

This place is the next best thing to paradise! We had our own villa. There is free WiFi. The food is excellent, but the best part is the hot springs. Sitting under the waterfall is better than any masseuse! Beautiful place

Awesome resort that my family LOVED! They had everything on-site including their own private zoo with animals that the owner saved from being euthanized. The hot springs pools located around the grounds were amazing. There's even a slide for the kids to enjoy. There's tubing, horseback riding and more. It has a fabulous view of the volcano as well.
