We traveled to Arenal with 3 young children (ages 4, 6 & 8) and had a great experience here.
The grounds are beautiful and spacious, with a ton of room to run around, and you have an amazing view of the volcano. The pools are great, some are warm, some hot, and some cold - the kids loved exploring all of the different choices around the property. The rooms are large and clean and have 2 queen beds, a mini fridge and plenty of room to be comfortable, and the AC works great. Breakfast was included and had great options for the kids.
Arenal Springs Resort is also in a great location, and you can easily drive into La Fortuna in 10 minutes where there are many choices for eating & activities.
I am giving this only 4 stars instead of 5 for 2 reasons - 1) The internet was super sketchy in the room and just a little better by the pool, and 2) while the staff was there to help with activities planning, I don't think that they went out of their way to be friendly or helpful. They will only really acknowledge you if you initiate it.
Overall I would not hesitate to stay here again if we ever return to the area.
