We had a great stay at Blue River. The hot springs were fantastic, the food was good (and Jimmy the waiter/bartender made us custom drinks and kept us entertained), and we loved our room. We also did a hike with Walter, who was an excellent guide.
One word of caution: we were reluctant to spend the money to get picked up at Liberia airport, and weren't renting a car, so we attempted to get to the resort by public bus. We ended up getting dropped off 5km from the hotel with all our luggage, and after hiking about a third of the way, gratefully accepted a ride in a passing jeep. Not anxious to repeat that experience, we shelled out $180 for a ride to our next destination, Arenal. Blue River might be a better choice for people with a rental car or a higher travel budget than we had!
