Exceeded my expectations. Worth a trip to Costa Rica just to stay at this hotel. Our room had a great view of the volcano and a large patio/porch to sit on. Could have spent the entire vacation right there or in one of the many pools. Rooms are very spacious and decorated beautifully. Views are unbelievable!! The restaurants were just... More

From the moment that we arrived, until our departure, the service at The Springs was off the hook! The property is beyond beautiful and the hot springs were a great way to relax after a day full of activity. The only downside to this hotel is the long bumpy road to get to it...you would never believe what lies at... More

I went with three friends. We had a great time. The place itself is amazing. It was well thought out. Most importantly, the staff is the best of the best. They went out of their way to be helpful even before we got there. Two of us shared a room with a pull out bed. I slept on the pull... More

My husband and I spent three nights here for our honeymoon. We stayed in a honeymoon vista with a jacuzzi on the balcony. The entire resort is gorgeous, and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the hot springs they have on site. There are beautiful views of the volcano and surrounding mountains practically everywhere on the resort. The staff were all... More

I would like to start off by saying that I am a travel agent and was invited to experience The Springs by the owner and sales manager of the resort as well as it's sister property, La Paz Waterfall gardens / Peace Lodge. I brought my never-been-out-of-the-country friend to join me in this experience. The Springs is every bit as... More

My wife and I and our friends had the pleasure to stay here and it was nothing short of a great time. In my opinion, one of the best hotels in Costa Rica. The amenities at this hotel were awesome. For one, the incredible hot spring pools. One could not explain how awesome these pools are over a review like... More

My husband and I just left The Springs after a heavenly stay. The staff was super friendly and helpful at every turn. Our suite was exquisitely furnished and had an amazing view of Arenal Volcano. The many thermal pools were therapeutically relaxing. Our dinner at Las Ventanas was excellent. I recommend making a reservation before sunset to enjoy the view.... More

We bought passes for the hot springs section at the resort and also wanted to book a room for the night, but they were already booked full. With that being said, the kind man at the front desk actually called local competitors for us and found out what nearby resorts did have rooms available and their prices. Unbelievable! It was...

Where oh where to begin?!! As you can clearly see, I've stayed in some pretty "top notch" hotels and have become one spoiled traveler. The Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal, is simply "magical!"
