Full disclosure: We did not stay here. We tried to book here but it was full. But we did get a "day pass" which was actually good for two days. We may have spent more time here than at our own hotel. In a country full of WOWs, this is even more WOW. The climb up the unpavbed road doesn't...

I will make this fairly brief. My family of 4 spent 3 nights of Christmas eve and Christmas at the Springs. We had a very long travel day to arrive there and it was well worth it. Besides the awful road leading to the resort the last 10-15 minutes the resort is wonderful. My wife called our bathroom her favorite...

If you are in Arenal and want to splurge for a few days, I highly recommend the Springs. Our family spent four nights there as the first stop of a 12-day tour of Costa Rica. We decided to go deluxe for the first part of trip to help us recover from the long and tiring journey down and get used...

We obtained a 2 day pass to the resort for Christmas Eve and Day. We were staying nearby at lovely Leaves and Lizards. Couldnt believe how luxurious The Springs was. The architecture is amazing, the hear size and opulence was amazing. The pools beautiful (if a little fake looking), the bar service terrific, the changing rooms almost embarrassingly luxurious and...
