My husband and I just got back from a 3 night stay at The Springs Resort and we were absolutely blown AWAY by the entire property!!! Upon arrival we were struck by the beauty of the property; as you drive in, the hotel is situated on acres upon acres of green grass, rolling hills, cows, horses, you name it. Not... More

One of the coolest and nicest places we’ve seen. Lots of really friendly and attentive staff, beautiful location, unique rooms with fabulous views. Was cloudy and rainy, but that did not really affect our activities much. It's a fairly long, windy and bumpy drive to get there from Liberia, but it's worth it. Our daughters (12 and 14) loved the... More

We visited the Springs in mid June, 2013, and from the moment we arrived at the resort, we were blown away. Accommodations are gorgeous. views are spectacular, the staff couldn't be more caring and loving, the food was delicious and the grounds of the resort and Club Rio and the animal preserve was just magnificent. We had a wonderful guide... More

This place exceeded my expectations by far! The place is just beautiful, clean, well managed and the staff over the top helpful! Loved everything about this dream spot - even went to the SPA which was one of the best spa experiences I've ever had. The only negative is the lack of night life. After dinner, there's truly nothing to... More

For this special occasion my brothers and I wanted something perfect. We had 100 guest residents and foreigners. We needed a paradise and we found it in The Spring Resort and Spa in La Fortuna Costa Rica. Our first tour there was a perfect experience everything was set for the party ( food, location, transportation, bar). I wanted typical food... More

From beginning to end this resort is breathtaking. From its numerous waterfall gardens, to the food, to the amazing people that treat you with such care. I highly recommend it for any couple young and old or family. The rooms are decorated with excellent taste down to the last detail always looking at a picture window of the Arenal Volcano.... More

This resort was awesome. We were a group of 10 and they placed us in 5 rooms very close by. The surroundings were beautiful, the rooms also. The staff was very friendly and always making you feel at home. They arranged our tours and transpoortation to different places and all was always on time. The pool area ( with the... More

We were at the Springs Resort from 7-13 to 7-20 and it was an incredible vacation. We were there for the entire week and there was plenty to do. Club Rio is the absolute best - what an incredible place within a short 3 minute shuttle ride. My wife & I are very active and in our 40's and have... More

We just returned from an amazing first time to Costa Rica and I highly recommend staying at The Springs Resort. We are a family of four, including two teenage girls. We stayed in a two bedroom springs suite. It had two rooms w/sliding doors in between. Each room had its own bathroom and beautiful views of the volcano. We had... More

I didn't stay at the lodge so I can't comment on the rooms. I got the two day visitor pass to enjoy the hot springs. I loved trying out all the differently temperatured pools and I could not pass up the water slide! With the pass you can also take a bus down to the river and see some wildlife... More
