We could not have picked a more perfect destination for our honeymoon! This place is awe-inspiring! The resort itself is extremely beautiful and majestic and when combined with the incredible landscape and views of the volcano there is just nothing that can compare!

This was one of our tours after kayaking the river.....Since the river was low we were achy and sore, The resort is breathtaking, but it's multileveled necessitating elevators and stairs. It felt like we were the only two there. We soaked in the pools and then dressed and went to the dining room for the included lunch. We were the... More

I have literally found my new love, not only with the Costa Rica but the paradise I found within the country. The Spring Resort and Spa at is simply a mastermind.

The Springs Resort and Spa is simply magnificent. It was a graduation trip for my grand-daughters. From the time we arrived everyone gave five star service. The rooms, the grounds, the atmosphere, everything and everybody was superb. Would definitely return for a longer stay. Only flaw is there wasn't a wide variety in food choices.

Just returned from a two week trip to Costa Rica and stayed at the Peace Lodge at the beginning of our journey. Since it was the start of the green season, we knew it would likely be less crowded, but in no way imagined we would practically have the resort to ourselves. A gorgeous place, with beautiful surroundings, animals, waterfalls,... More

While we traveled as a couple, and only bought a day pass, the hotel has a broad range of activities for children and adults. Rock climbing, river tubing and kayaking, horseback and ATV riding appeal to the active while a small zoo of rescued animals, countless hot springs, patios and a swim up bar cater to the more sedentary.
