It's hard to list all the reasons why, for both my husband and myself, our stay at the Springs Resort and Spa will rank as one of the top stays we've ever experienced. But let me try: - The natural setting of the Springs, near the Arenal Volcano, is spectacular. The owners have thoughtfully placed the main lodge and the... More

Honestly enjoyed my stay at the springs more than I could have imagined. We went for a day using the day pass, and it was one of the most relaxing days of my entire life. However, the springs can only do so much and what really made my day stand out was the exemplary service of a bartender named Donald.... More

Dear Jbazalia, Thank you for taking the time to write about Donald at Los Perdidos Bar. This is a separate area of mineral spring pools and waterfalls set apart from our Laguna pools. Isolated by a canopy of trees, these pools range in temperature from 91 degrees to 104 degrees. When I informed Donald about how impressed you were his... More

we were on our honeymoon staying at budget bungalows across the road, got a 2 day pass for $50 each which gives you access to all facilities, relaxing in hot springs with tasty cocktails, great to soak weary muscles after hiking.

My family travels extensively and we were very much impressed by this hotel. It is the whole package with beyond beautiful natural setting, excellent staff, and luxurious accommodations. Only a few weeks before we left for Costa Rica we made a change in our final days itinerary. We booked The Springs based on the amazing Trip Advisor reviews and are... More

We stayed at the Springs as part of a multi-centre Costa Rica vacation. Early impressions were extremely positive with a very professional and thorough walk-through of the property. There is a large main building which has the core services of reception, spa, restaurant, etc and then all the accommodation is in separate buildings close by. Finally there is 'Club Rio'... More

This was a perfect place to end our trip to Costa Rica. The rooms had every thing you needed and more! The hot springs and the Club Rio were incredible. The staff was very friendly and bent over backwards to make our stay more than comfortable. All of the rooms face the beautiful Arenal volcano so you cannot go wrong... More

We recently spent a day at The Springs Resort on a day pass. My husband and older daughter did the Club Rio package which included 2 activities. They did the horseback riding and the tubing and they had a blast. The service at the front desk was excellent. We had 9:30 reservations for horseback riding, but we arrived just after... More

i didn't stay at the hotel, but spent an evening at the springs. These were easily the nicest springs I went to at Arenal. Not crowded, very nice facilities, friendly staff and lovely springs. Dinner was also very nice. Well worth visiting.

If you are going to the Arenal area of Costa Rica, I highly recommend this hotel. Great service and fantastic facilities. The adventures are really good and highly recommend to visit their new Club Rio.
